    I've noticed a lot of TBers have quotes from other TBers as their signature. Seems fairly unique to this forum, and frankly, it can be rather confusing. What's the story? Are these subtle coded messages design to brainwash forum newbies?

    Most of them are merely memorable moments of hilarity. Another TB'er says something preposterous that sends you into fits of laughter? Quote them and use it as your signature! It's sort of like some kind of freaky bonding ritual.

    I've never really taken notice of the quotes in signatures.

    Hmmmmm :smug:

    ps: how's the GROUP LESSONS thread?

    I debated this approach as well. However, laziness is a powerful she-devil and her mighty pitchforked ways held me back from such an ironic exhibition.

    I shows appreciation for the quote, the person or both.
    I've seen it in pretty much all forums I frequent.

    The user at the end of the year with the most signature quotes gets a TB'er of the year award. Start saying nifty things.

    Peace,

    Dunno, I see lots of members on ultimate-guitar/Dream Theater forums use quotes in sigs.

    It's definitely a forum thing but not unique to this one. I think it's a fun way of showing camaraderie, etc.

    If there is one thing worse than being quoted on Talkbass.com, it is not being quoted on Talkbass.com.
