I miss: Coloured texts on signatures :sob:

A new feature I wish we always had: Likes and notifications

And not much has changed name-wise, haha! But I do miss signatures so much, I’d trade almost all the new features for a signature (the only one that is truly brilliant is getting notified when someone mentions you in a post)!

I saw this on the Quick [name_u]Poll[/name_u] Thread and decided to go back to see how much Nameberry has changed over 12 years and counting! I then started to see a few posts from way before I became interested in names, and I eventually used the advanced search feature here to bring back some older BNGs I liked!

Even though I had a signature for about three weeks (from when I first joined NB to when the site changed), I do miss seeing signatures on here, but at the same time, I love the new layout! It did take a few weeks to get used to, but the more I played around with the new features, the more I liked it!

I agree! I love a lot of the new features, especially tagging people and notifications, but UC don’t live up to signatures at all. I don’t usually take the time to click everyone’s UC as I read through posts, and seeing everyone’s signature really made it easier to keep track of who everyone was and what their naming style is!

Despite this I think the new site runs more smoothly, I like that it is updating constantly as opposed to needing to refresh, I like seeing who is typing as they reply, and many other features :slight_smile:

This is what I miss the most, I honestly have no idea what kind of names most people have on their list, which, for a site dedicated to name, is quite unfortunate.

Definitely! Yeah and sometimes the UCs can get glitchy and frustrating to look at when they are glitchy. Signatures just seemed a lot easier.

I also used to scroll through random threads on nameberry and read signatures to get new inspiration, which I miss being able to do
