    Andy, I don't know what your definition of personal attack is, but the post you just deleted was not one. Maybe read it next time?

    It was. When you tell someone you don't like their arrogant ways, it is definitely provocation. That kind of commentary is unnecessary and suitable for the reputation system.

    So, anyone have any more comments about signature requirements?

    Strict line count?
    Font specification?
    No fonts or special characters at all?

    I personally don't care. It doesn't bother me one way or another. I just scroll down a little more to read the next post. As long as it's not offensive I don't care how small or large the signature is.

    Max font of 3 or 4, strict 200-300 character limit.

    as you can see from my sig below, the character limit and font limit would eliminate issues. Also something to do with the content.

    font size should be what it normally is, no bigger. 6 line count since there are people with blogs and books and such, colors idc.
    obectively speaking i thought the post was fine seeing as he stated he had no problem with him but that it seemed arrogant the way he was posting.

    The line count isn't as important as the font size. People like to put links to helpful threads and spreadsheets for Rubins, so that would count against you in a line restricted signature. Font size just becomes obnoxious and irritating to everyone. That's my .02 on it.

    if anyone needs tips on how to become the king of turking let me know, to get to this level you need a specific set of skills which I have

    17k Earnings Club, 50k Hits Approved Club, Masters Qual, 99%, top 20 turker award, 50 dollars per day club, 400 dollars per week club, Full time job and turker club

    Jealousy is the highest form of flattery.

    :



    this is BS, this was put up in retaliation in a passive agressive way after a heated discussion in a thread a few weeks back. and with that im off to lunch.

    EDIT: the size is not showing.

    Color as well. Personally, it annoys me when people decide a rainbow of text is necessary. Maybe any two colors?

    Hi, we're past this. Please discuss signature limitations only here.

    Isn't the return of mike's sig provocation in and of itself?

    Mikes signature will be limited based upon the new signature rules which we form in this thread.

    Read this, the last paragraph before the comments.

    http://turkrequesters.blogspot.ca/2012/12/unfortunate-reality-of-some-scamming.html

    If you think requesters can't make qualifiers for certain workers, you are mistaken. Yes, I know that our member names can't tie us to our mturk account but I wouldn't say it's completely impossible.
