    Hello,
    I would like to know if it could be possible to have some kind of text that appears under your text after you post something on the forum that anyone would be able to see.
    This automatic text would tell everyone what you used to post (did you post from a Ipad? from your android? from your wii u? from your pc? your mac? from your whatever?)
    you could also disable this option in confidentiality setting so this would never appear after your post.

    no i mean an automated message that would tell everyone what you are using to write on the forum.
    Like right now, I'm using my wii u, well under my post, it would say something like




    this post was sent from a Wii U.

    Why would you want this? I see no real positive purposes to doing it.

    Anyway doing it retrospectively is probably not going to happen -- ip addresses tend to be noted (as does time of post, username and the obvious stuff) but the rest does not tend to make its way into forum databases (IP logs of the server are a different matter). I am sure the software could be adapted to pull from the user agent stuff but again I am not seeing the benefit -- such signatures in emails and whatever else are usually the first thing I remove from phones and such like when people give me them to set up.

    Somewhere?
    If you want to you could change your Sig, or type it in every time. Most people will not need or want this so I don't see it happening.

    In your basement Dick Size: 5 meters.
    Why not just make a html widget that detects that?

    I tried really hard to implement this, but I couldn't, so no, it's not possible.

    It is absolutely essential that I know that someone posted from the toilet, or that they have a Mac :mellow:

    I think that older versions of Tapatalk2 had an option to automatically add "This message was sent from XXX device" to all of your messages. Not sure if it still exists in the newer versions, I was never really interested lol

    Edit: Yeah, it still exists on the newest version of Tapatalk.
