[Forum] Signature preview and forum display differs

Well, its in the title. This is what my signature looks in signature preview.

And this is what it looks like in the forum posts.

There is no warning or whatsoever that only the first line is shown.

If only signatures could have scroll bars or spoilers.
I'm working on a mod that is essentially Galacticraft for Minetest (with differences).

This is intentional, people were abusing signatures by adding many lines. You'll also notice that colors are stripped too

I am pretty sure it is intentional, but it's not noted anywhere and the rule is not applied to the preview.

you could shorten your url descriptions.

"My German Let's Play and Live Stream Channel"
"German Let's Play Channel" for instance (or even shorter)

"Easy to use walls" > "Easy walls"

Length of my individual signature isn't the issue here. I plan to change it anyway.

It's the missing description of how the signature is processed and what's cut off and that this does not reflect in the signature preview.

I didn't even notice when the irritation stopped. Thank you to everyone involved for making this happen. : )

Yes, for me it was the reason to disable signatures. But still: Some kind of information or at least the preview resembling the actual signature would be nice.
