You say "no way" because of performance issues?
Didn't even think of it from that perspective. No, I'm thinking of it from a link saturation viewpoint. There's so much equity loss in forum signatures that it wouldn't even be a consideration if the decision were mine.
I see nothing wrong with the current profile method where there is one link to your choice of destination. The goal is to focus (funnel) that equity to one page instead of bleeding out 20, 30, 50 times per page. Yikes!
Plus, forum signatures tend to come across as somewhat unprofessional. I've never seen a good implementation of them in my travels. It also brings another level of moderation into the equation as each and every one of those would need to be reviewed. There are all sorts of after the fact risks to contend with. It's much easier to manage membership equity from a profile page.
OT, I would like to propose a change in the Profile URI.
I like em' simple. And at that level too. :)
