When joining forum, advise to add your hardware type/model + OS in signature

2007-12-11, 23:37 PM
Would it be possible to ask/advise new members, to put at least their hardware specs (e.g. T23 2647-4MU) in their signature when they sign up? And perhaps the OS as well? Or sort of make it mandatory?
See e.g. this post  in the Lenovo 3000 Notebooks forum, where this info has to be asked in order to help.

Endorse it, yes, I think it is a good idea. As for making it mandatory. No. Not all users are current Lenovo-products owners.

We should thing on some possitive way of inviting people to share that specs on their sigs or writing them down on posts when inquiring stuff about the machines they own.

I agree. I have far too many Thinkpads to list them and their operating systems in my signature. A general guideline to ask that posters list the type, model and OS of the system they're posting about should be sufficient.

I don't know if it's possible, but maybe something on the registration page which would be automatically transfered to the sig? For non-Lenovo product owners maybe a check-box for "I do not own a Lenovo product at this time" or "interested potential owner"? Very difficult I know, we don't want to scare people off, you know "big-brother" stuff etc....
