As for BBCode, it's for more than, er, Wiki stuff....BBCode is for controlling the actual look of the text in your post. If you make a post, on the top of the textbox is a whole list of little boxes with various BBCodes--B, i, u, Quote, etc. The actual code shown upon clicking those buttons is the BBCode.
That's fair enough. I was just suggesting it could be an option for those whose signatures are not plain. I've seen it work on quite a few boards, but I understand that it can make life more confusing than it needs to be. I s'pose I'm just used to being able to get rid of it. =\ Meh, never mind. x]
At least I now understand what was, until recently, the mysteries of the BBCode.
