    Interesting... Where did you experience that problem?

    AFAIK Google is smart enough to tell signatures and thread text/titles apart and prioritize the latter but maybe other search engines don't (?). I did a "Maschine RX560" search in Google and in the old forum internally and none of my posts shows up, only the one's where I actually do mention "RX560" in the thread text itself; signatures are fully ignored from search.

    The point of having my HW there is just in case someone has an issue and sees I have the same HW then they can ask questions and confirm it's not an HW issue; if that sort of thing causes issues then it could just be disallowed but tbh I never heard of that before.

    Personally, I love to see people's exact specs at a glance, so if user Y says software Z runs fine at a buffer of 32samples with 700 tracks with Massive-X I know what that system is capable of, and have a poi t of comparison, this includes more details than XYZ CPU as that only says half the story. Benchmarks in the Audio world are rare, in the tech/computer / gaming world they are all over and specs are common in signatures.

    @D-One I only mentioned you because I know you have something like that in your signature. I'm speaking more generally about that concept that has been on internet forums for the last 20 years; not necessarily something I've seen here. I end up resorting to "intitle:(blah blah)" and google starts asking if I'm a bot.

    I'm not entirely sure if there's a way to stop google from indexing text in signatures. If so; I wish every forum would do that. It looks like the old NI forums don't show the signature unless you're logged in; so that's nice. If that's the case with this new forum too; great.

    I promise I wasn't trying to call you out. "This villainous person with a signature!!!"

    Just so I understand the points about replies. What would your reply button do? Tag a user?

    Also mind you, when you've already visited a thread, it should go to latest page automatically and not the first one. I'll check that again.

    I'll take note of the size and colour. Having css style for admins/mods should be a quick thing.

    @c0nsul You are the true hero of the day!

    I guess I clicked in a wrong box and the custom permission of the welcome area were messed up. It should be sorted now 😰

    Hey! Happy to have you here. We tweaked a couple of things earlier. It should be better now with new uploads.

    @JesterMgee Yes, it was already on our radar and we need to find a way to make the theme switchable for users. I'll try to do finish the theme when I can and share a screenshot here.

    Is there no way to quote a specific part of a comment? I want to quote someone, but want to focus the discussion on a specific section of what they wrote. Normally I'd just delete the text not related to what I'm responding to.

    ...and these vote up/down buttons will turn into reddit troll fuel.
