New Member Limitations
Because forums are heavily bombarded by bots and spammers that have a malicious intent on forum usage, new member accounts have certain restrictions in place. These limitations are outlined in the following section as well as how they can be lifted.

Signature spam is rampant in forums. To prevent this from occurring on Okinawa.Org, by default, signatures are disabled for newly registered members. They are automatically enabled when the member meets this criterion: Has been a member for 8 days and posted at least 2 messages in the forum. This is to ensure that we can thoroughly differentiate which accounts are spam accounts and which are genuine members.

If you feel that you need a signature before these two conditions are met, you are free to ask the staff in the Contact Okinawa.Org Support forum and they will more likely than not assist you in turning them on sooner.

Signature Limitations
Once signatures have been enabled, the following limitations are in place,

Registered Members
Lists are not allowed
Images are not allowed
Embedded media is not allowed
Block tags (quote, code, etc.) is not allowed
There is a maximum of 750 printable characters
A maximum of 3 lines
You may only have 1 link
A maximum of 10 smiles

Business Accounts (TBD)
To be decided upon at a later date.

This is a guide is a work in progress.
