    Default Links at top / Signature length

    Request #1
    This probably has something to do with the site in total, with the geeko on the topleft leading to the relevant part of the site.. if it does not then in my opinion the link should be towards opensuse.org.

    And for the image next to it, (The forums text in a fancy font) should link to the forums frontpage forums.opensuse.org (even if you don't change the link from the topleft image I think you should still add this one)

    Request #2
    I'd like to see the signature length increased, as it's very short if you stick (a few) url(s) in there. Best way around it would be to exclude bb tags from the length count.. but I don't know how which options the forum software offers

    I'd edit my post if it wasn't for the 15 minute limit you have after the original post.

    It should go to http://www.opensuse.org I never noticed that it was
    pointed to the forums root. Thanks for that and we'll get it updated.

    This follows the wiki style/layout as it is and there is a forums link
    right below that so for overall site consistency, we'll probably keep
    that as it is.

    Request noted. When we originally put together the forums there was a
    lengthy discussion about signatures among the forum staff and what you
    see today was the outcome of those discussions as what the staff
    determined would be optimal for our forums.

    Thanks for taking the time to send constructive feedback! All
    suggestions are noted and we aren't naive enough to think that keeping
    things the way they are forever is the best thing to do. When there is
    a need that staff feels should be met, we'll gladly make changes.

    I thought it was 10.

    Think you're right

    Anyhow.. thanks for taking the time to change the link behind the geeko image.

    I made the link behind the forum image suggestion since the other link (the breadcrumb one) is rather small and that link is most likely used far more often. So a bigger clickable area is easier access (especially to those with some form of disability that makes it hard to be -that- precise)
