(Fark)   Why are most people so lazy with their signature? They start the first letter out, and then just scribble after that, and it is not readable. You can't identify whose signature belongs to who. What is with all the scribblers?   (fark.com) divider line 254

I am responsible for the popularity of cats on Fark.

50% of Fark profitss go to fund the WBC, just to make them protest more funerals, just to make more Fark greenlits, just to generate more revenue.

Fark TV was a government conspiracy to see how unfunny people can be and still have people defend it.

I taunted the Dynamite Monkey, but nothing happened.

2013-06-22 04:13:57 PM
I don't think I've signed a document in ten years where it was important for anyone to actually read my signature, and my scribble is distinctive enough that I should be able to identify it.  So why not save 0.75 seconds and scribble?

Fact: If the Consitution was signed by scribblers, the nation would have lasted a week.

I was going to post my signature to show you how beautiful it is with its squiggly lines, then I realized I probably don't want to have my signature released on the internet. I know how many of you like to right click now.

I worked in the slatted chair factory.  I sabotaged one chair to be SLIGHTLY more open than the other slated chairs.  JUST TO TRAP MY PRAY.

I didn't realize my pray would have been a Farker, but there you have it.

Also, I was the one that introduced DoZ to her boyfriend.

My signature is ridiculous, BUT it's distinct as hell.  Believe me, no one could posslby forge it and have it look authentic.  I sign my first initial, middle name in full (trails off near the end), and the first letter of my last name before it trails off into lunacy.

2013-06-22 04:44:22 PM
Mine's a scribble but a consistent scribble, capitalized first letter of my first name, capitalized middle initial, capitalized first letter of my last name and lower case next four letters before it breaks down into a line for the remaining four letters. I have to sign my name hundreds of times a week at work and ain't nobody got time for a signature that takes more than two seconds to scribble down.

And this is ... newsworthy ... why?
 
2013-06-22 05:07:20 PM
I don't neatly write out my name because that would be very easy to copy.  My signature may look like a scribble but it is a carefully arranged scribble that is very consistent and harder to forge. I just assumed that most of us "scribblers" were doing the same.

MissFeasance: Mine depends on what I'm signing.  If it's an actual important document like a contract or something I use my nice signature.  If it's a credit card receipt for a box of nails and a bottle of Diet Coke at Home Depot I'll just scribble something that vaguely resembles my initials.  I still haven't quite worked out how to sign a capital cursive G.  Like, I know how you're SUPPOSED to do it, but I'm still working on a personalized signature version.


I had the same problem. Switching from this to this helped a lot. Way more ergonomic and it looks cooler, especially with my first initial being a J. It's very nearly the same motion as a cursive J, just with different-sized loops, also it makes the whole name look more symmetrical.

Also, the latter script G looks way more like a printed G than a traditional Palmer Method G.

/fonts fonts fonts, we can do them with our hands, we can do them with our keyboards, we can do them in Japan...

Remember all the people who come out in droves to proudly proclaim their ignorance of the art whenever cursive writing is brought up in a thread?

They are the scribblers.

One Bad Apple: My name has too many vertical letters (l's, i's, and p's) to just scrawl out a flat line


Mines does too.  That's why mine looks like a seismograph.

Relevant CSB.

This reminds me of something that happened when I was working for Gamestop, shortly before it went all evil. Had a guy sign a credit card receipt by drawing what amounted to a spiral. I asked him if I could see his driver's license, because come on. He gets all offended and demands to see the manager. I explain the situation, manager looks at the signature, grabs a pen and paper and draws the guy's signature almost exactly. "That's why we need to see your license, sir."

/the moral of the story is 'don't get all huffy when people question if your signature is really your signature when your signature is essentially a spirograph'.
