Signature Requirements

All members of the Puritanboard must have a minimal "signature" in their User Control Panel that includes the following items:

First Name (or nickname)
Ministry Position (if you are a Church Office holder)
Denominational Affiliation
State of Residence

A signature would look like this:

Ruling Elder, PCA
Fort Worth, TX

The profile section of your user control panel contains information that must be filled out so that other users of the board can know who you are as a poster on the Board. Screen names are great, but they are confusing and we would like to have the proper information on each member. After all, we are trying to foster a community of Christians who encourage, pray for and help each other.

In the event that you do not have a minimal signature and/or your profile is incomplete, you will be contacted by a Moderator. If there is a problem, please contact a Moderator or Admin. Repeated failure to comply will result in suspension of posting privileges.

If you are unsure about the signature requirements, or have specific privacy concerns, please contact an Administrator.


In order to reduce the size of threads and slow display of threads, Board members should limit the size of their signatures.
Signatures must:

1. Be no more than 10 lines of text or the equivalent if a picture is included (not including Admin/Mod board links)

2. Contain appropriate material, for example: Scripture quotes, edifying theological quotes, other proper personal comments and links to reformed and personal websites. It is inappropriate for signatures to contain inflammatory comments, insults, offensive language, etc.

3. Signatures will not have any political or inappropriate statements or links to like websites.

Ultimate decision on the appropriateness of statements and links will be determined by the Admins. Violation of the signature requirements can result in suspension of posting privileges and ultimately being banned.

An example of an appropriate signature would be:
Des Moines, Iowa

"Anything worth doing is worth doing for God"
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake.
(Psalm 23:1-4)
