Pretty sure you can't fix this without an update to the forum software but figured I'd put it out there anyway.

The "Signature" limit is expressed as 500 characters. There seems to be 9 extra characters added to any given users input string when validated against the limit. If I fill up the signature so that 8 characters or less are remaining and update my profile it will save without error but when you view the signature string again it will truncate the last 9 characters.

Geez, who needs 500 characters for a signature? Humans are lazy and only skim on the internet. Maybe you could try selling a car... Wink

I made it bigger just for you... I'm not even going to try to figure out why SMF can't count.

 cheers

Mostly it was just an observation, I guess I can't suppress my inner software engineer. Regardless, thanks!.... now I need to figure out how to abuse those extra characters.  Cheesy slap

But if you were this guy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubert_Blaine_Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorff,_Sr. you still might have a problem

Now me, I have the same name as my grandfather, and his before him, and so on....., probably all the way back to when they were serfs on the land of some other guy with the same last name.  No numbers, no seniors, no nothing, and only 14 characters including spaces.

Who in their right mind would say

"The science should not stand in the way of this."? 

Science is just observation and hypothesis.  Policy stands in the way.........

Or maybe it protects us. 

I suppose it depends on the specific case.....
