Actually, he is prevented from creating a signature line at this time. Not until he makes a certain number of posts.

I've no idea why Amazon doesn't do signatures, it would make it so much easier.
MobileRead dos this in order to control rogue members who decide to join merely to go on a spamming mission. In this regard, new members must be on MobileRead for a couple of weeks and make a certain number of posts.
When these conditions have been met, then any member is allowed to create signature lines - as long as they follow the guidelines for creating signatures.
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.
