This leads to another suggestion:
Make editable part inside userpages of forum.
This forum also has userpages but it only displays statistics. It's on the URL https://forum.minetest.net/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=YOUR_PROFILE_ID
I see many other forums has that kind of feature where the userpages begins with custom post (eg. About Me) that's editable by user itself, it would be good if that space is provided and you can write anything without limit (except limit by BBcode specs itself) and post all links there instead of in-signature or creating new thread for links.
From certain community's forum which uses IPBoard 3.4.7 by InvisionPower
For free(?) alternative, it's also could be added directly in newer version of phpBB (see this
) or modify codes in older version.
Alternatively, we can also have a thread for every users. This is implemented in some forums software where it's impossible to create custom post in userpage itself due to problems with the software itself (or because the owner is lazy to mod it, lol).

Not all forum users are aware that they can't just post one or two sentences if their signature is a mile long.
At least most of my posts are not just one or two sentences, except those in Offtopic [GAME] topics.
