I notice lots of members here (myself included) have lots of little dotted lines in their signature. I personally can't help but read these when I see them, but do you guys? Do you just skim by it, or must you satisfy your burning curiosity that is aroused every time you see that little dotted line?

Curiosity always get the best of me, so I usually hover over hovertext to see what members have to say that's too long for their signature. Besides, not like I'm busy with something more productive or anything...;_;

Haha, I find that it actually takes up more room if you do have mouseover text. I was busy putting in [title] tags when all of a sudden it told me my sig had to be below 3,000 characters. I had to lose a couple of mouseovers in order to make it fit, haha.

Depends on the context. If it's text like pair, theme, or something another, then I usually overlook it. I also ignore it if it takes up a majority of the signature space (i.e. everything has tiny dots under it). If it's ambiguous though, I tend to read it.

I love to read those texts. Although most of them are typos and nonsense or "secrets".

Most of the time I do, if it's an interesting member/signature, but if it's something obvious, like a pairing, then I probably won't look.

Then it tends to be quite disappointing XD

I pretty much only read them when I care about what it's going to say. If the signature caught my attention and I actually, you know, care who someone is paired with and whatnot, I'll hover. I usually skip over the ones that don't have an obvious meaning (ie, random phrases or words are title'd) since ambiguity often annoys me.

But yeah, if I'm actually reading everything in the signature anyway, I'll go for it. Otherwise I skim over it like I would anything else.

It is weird that I read mouseover text in posts and not in signatures.

I will usually read over the mouseover text. If the signature is interesting enough and they got that type of text, I will check it out. I am a curious person as you can see. So sometimes I usually do it.

If I know it involves a pair I may look over out of curiosity. If I can tell it's just a bunch of dumb websites they want you to visit I skip past it.
