    The preferences string of one of your users must have been corrupted somehow. Try to identify for which users the error occurs with and reset their preferences (either simply change one of their forum preferences or manually change it).

    ok, many thanks :)

    ok, thanks.
    Is there any "easy" way to find the corrupted string ?

    try to find the common user(s) for which the error appears, ie. what user(s) always are part of a discussion in which you get that notice.

    you could alternately write a little script to loop through the preference strings of users (in a particular discussion, mayhaps) and find which ones are corrupted.

    I think I have found the (one of) user, but where is the signature stored in the db? I can't see it anywhere....

    [edit: dont worry- i just went to their account page in the fourm and updated it]
