    On another thread Chris had the following to say .....

    I mentioned this a year or so ago but feel it is worth mentioning again. It would be great if the scale or scales we work in would show with our name to the left of a post. I frequently see posts and wonder if what I'm looking at is Z, N, HO or another scale. It would make the forum just that much more useful in my opinion.

    I did just add it to my 'Signature Line' so if nothing else guys think about doing that. I know some of you have been on here a long time and know everyone but for some of us newer guys that isn't the case and it would help.

    I'll ask in a staff group and see if it's possible. I don't know if the forum software has such a function.

    I have also wished for the same.

    When we had the "big glitch" a few years back, I spent months trying to sort out all the topics and get them back where they belonged. Had there been some sort of indicator, it would have sped up that process by light years. :(

    I have also experienced this issue. It can be difficult to guess, off the HO and N scale portions of the board.

    I've had it in my signature from the beginning, but agree that it would be helpful to know who was in what scale.

    Heck we can even choose a color and make it bold! Now my OCD wants them all to be in the same place and each scale a different color, thanks :) It's a joke, or is it :) Well there is mine, me thinks? Don't think anyone will be asking me anymore? But I agree, I always wonder! And if you have multiple ones [ N-Scale ] [ HO-Scale ] [ Z-Scale ] [ G-Scale ]

    Now see what you did, I was messing with this for at least 30 minutes :) And now I have them in the wrong order, geez :)

    Testing. I know you folks don't know me, but once we get moved and if I get to build another layout, I'll have more to say.
