    Thumbs down Oi Turbine! What is this?!

    I recently logged into my account and posted on the forums. I noticed that my signature contained this line:

    A vote for Sapience is a vote for progress! Vote today!

    Now, i'm all for supporting people, however as this was not added by me and by the look of it was implemented onto EVERYONE's signature by a Turbine Bot, I am seriously not happy!

    I feel betrayed, Hacked and Disgusted that this has happened!

    Turbine, If you feel you must do this again in future, Strike me off of the list!
    I don't want this happening to my signature again!

    If you want me to support a cause, please send me an email and I will review it myself!
    Level's are contagious but why get rid of them?

    If you consider Sapience a bot then sure. But he may take it personally.

    I would suggest you see the many dozens of other topics on this rather than starting another without even a look.

    Actually, he was just giving people signatures (to replace all the broken ones) which were so obnoxious that people would change them right away. So... go ahead. You Have The Power.

    I don't care either way - I've had signatures turned off here since 2007.

    I did look for an existing topic, and couldn't find one...
    And I don't consider Sapience a bot... It was an automatic system that replaced it... sapience wouldn't and couldn't have the time to change each individual one... and he may not have even been the one who did it specifically, he may have chosen the text, but someone else may have implemented it

    As you are well aware, The forums have changed... I haven't got round to finding where everything's moved to yet!

    I like signatures, however I didn't approve of being given one that I didn't want...
    If they wanted to replace the broken ones, all they needed to do was just to remove them, not replace them

    -----

    Going back to what I originally said, I feel that anyone or anything that changes something I've set myself is a betrayal of trust. I accept that the old character sigs are now broken but all that was needed to be done was not to display them. Turbine said nothing about implementing this line and therefore I believe that we have all been betrayed of trust.

    And as a side note, I have voted for sapience in the awards. He's a very good community manager and has helped me with questions about lotro and stuff in general. I will always support him as he has always supported the community. I would have just preferred being told in a different manner!

    He changed some broken text in a forum signature, and you can change it to whatever you want with 1 minute's effort. Somehow, I'm confident you'll survive the trauma.

    Nowhere in your original post did you say you were having trouble finding where to go to change your signature, if you had, I wouldn't have mentioned it.

    Stop making a mountain out of a molehill, everything on this forum belongs to Turbine and they have every right to change any of it.

    OK. Your point is?

    You have totally ignored what that post has and why I posted the link to it. Why is that?

    And do you know why they were closed? Because people kept voicing their displeasure without reading anything about it.

    For the record, didn't know that,

    Also, I was just saying that i felt that we should have at least been told first. I was just indicating my displeasure and you're all going way overboard. I get that it was out of anyone's control! I get all of your points but this is getting far too out of hand!
