Updating your signature updates on all your old posts

I noticed when reading Kristl's 2008 "My bit of Heaven" that her signature on the SRGC says Nova Scotia, when it was Ontario when she originally wrote the post. Our NARGS forum uses the same program, and I have noticed similar things here too: that your signature and all that is posted on the left with your user name changes for all posts both new and old. Obviously, this is the way the smf program was written, but....

If you happen to come across a configuration that would keep original signatures with the original posts, it would be advantageous in situations like Kristl's, where her new signature that is attached to her old posts now makes a reader think that that she gardened in Nova Scotia during ALL the time she has been a member of the SRGC.

Just something to keep in the back of your minds...
