How do I set up my signature in THIS forum

I see that some members have signatures and I'd like to add one too (nothing fancy, just the current version & theme I'm using).
couldn't find how to set it up but this could easily be explained by my refrigerator blindness (that's when my wife asks me to bring something from the fridge and I can't see it even though it is in front of me).

Well, at this pace (getting to 500 points) the signature will probably say Vanilla Version 5.3.11...
Don't understand why, my purpose was to ensure I don't forget to have this info available to any question I post, but I'm sure wiser minds have a good reason...
It's sort of a minor security concern to perpetually broadcast your current version number. We considered making it a profile field, but between that and the potential of using many versions, it just doesn't seem that useful overall. Version is important in the context of particular questions / discussion, not per-user.
Oh snap! I remember there was an issue with the signature by the time I became MVP and then I totally forgot about it
Now I will torture my brain if I should tell the world my favorite joke (only 6 words, so don't panic), show my favorite cartoon - well, I don't have one, but if I had, it would be a Calvin & Hobbes Cartoon, but for this forum this one might be more suitable:
Or simply prove that I'm a smart ass and post a let-me-google-that-for-you link to the Vanilla FAQ.
Hmm... some annoying ascii art would also be an alternative.
Are animated GIFs allowed?
Send me all your money... MUAHAHAHA
Or I simply forget about it again...
Thanks you @link, that does make sense even beyond the 500 points, but you touched upon something when you wrote > @Linc said:
In this comment related to questions eqituette I made a suggestion to that specific issue. Here is a copy:
Just an idea...
There is no need to ask for the version. Only the newest (stable) version is supported.
My themes: pure | minusbaseline - My plugins: CSSedit | HTMLedit | InfiniteScroll | BirthdayModule | [all] - PM me about customizations
VanillaSkins.com - Plugins, Themes and Graphics for Vanillaforums OS
well, I see plenty of people asking and getting volunteer feedback on previous versions. Besides, the version question is just one of the things volunteers asked for (theme name also comes to mind;-)
True with subtle effects...
with categories specific version numbers it helps.
unfortunately, people continue to post questions in discussions in 2.2 if they are using 2.1 and vice versa.
but it would still help people in the future when the version numbers increment. A version number specified in the discussion, could theoretically help future readers place the change within the framework on a temporal level.
And people tack on questions to discussions related to older versions and then wonder why the line numbers of code is different.
be glad your problem only occurs in the kitchen and not in other rooms.
I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
