I have seen this practiced in another community, and I wanted to propose that the board hosts or interim hosts for the new boards that have no hosts yet strongly suggest all members posting responses to remove their signatures from posts on m/c and loss threads. This applies primarily to the DDC's, but I think that it's a respectful way to allow the OP to grieve without being reminded how far along fellow members are in their pregnancies.
Maybe this should be a sticky in all DDC's, but I felt compelled to bring this to everyone's attention.
This is just my honest opinion, so please don't take this the wrong way. There is a way for others who do not wish to see siggy's to disable them. You are able to go into your controls, and go to board options and turn off siggy's.
I do understand that the women accessing those boards, more than likely are feeling sensitive. But wouldn't it be easier for them or whom ever is feeling this way. To take the initiative to turning off siggy's from their view. And please correct me if I am wrong... but I don't think there is a way for others to turn them off, so that they aren't seen by other members.
I hope that I didn't offend anyone. I was just offering my thoughts on this subject.
You can uncheck the "enable signature?" box when you post a new topic or reply.[/b]
This is exactly what I'm referring to. Just a gentle reminder from board hosts, primarily in the DDC's for all members who do post on a m/c loss thread to ask members who respond to disable their signatures.

You can't set it so YOUR signature doesn't show to other people... the people who don't want to see them need to disable it so they can't see other peoples. Wow, that's about as clear as mud! [/b][/quote]
Trina, there is a little check box underneath the box that you type your message in. It normally has enable signature checked. You can uncheck it when you go to post.
As far as the etiquette issue, we try to let each board decide for themselves what is proper etiquette. We do not have site wide rules about this. I think it is a decent suggestion but I think it would be something each board would need to talk over and decide upon.

I'm not sure if I agree on this one. I mean, sure you can disable your signature, but they are going to see it again if they lurk anywhere else. Ladies have their signatures up all over the place. I lurked in my DDC even when I had a m/c and sure it hurt to know I wouldn't be a part of their DDC, but it was cool to see how far along they were.
