Thx @falco for typing the requirements. I’m going to make some adjustments…
an image upload (or URL field) to place a single image (.png, .jpg or .gif). Max file size and dimensions to be checked.
a site wide option to enable this text area and signatures in general
a per user option on profile to see signatures below posts.
a text area on user profile that accepts and compiles the same markdown of posts. Max characters and no images allowed.
This may seem like a low important feature, BUT, the alternative is that users manually place these animated GIFs in the body of their messages, meaning that more users have to see these images that actually don’t want to. They start embedding links to external images that get placed in our messages.
By creating this feature, we end up keeping our message content much cleaner and creating a distinction between message and signature.
