    Losing the signature on signed items.

    Has anyone else experienced this or knows what is causing it? Lots of FC peeps been crafting for each other and lots of the signatures are disappearing.

    Sending it via mog mail? I'm like 99% sure that'll erase signature.

    Signatures are just bugged right now. Here's a few facts about signatures:

    1) Nothing will remove a signature from an item that I'm aware of. Sold it on the wards? Still there. Moogle mailed it? Still there. I have personally confirmed both of these things.
    2) Signatures show up on the Lodestone item descriptions (this is how I confirmed #1).
    3) Signatures appear on any finished product; that includes food (not sure about potions, I didn't check). No idea what happens if you stack two things together that were made by two different people (Does it keep one? Does it remove the signature completely?).

    The bug with signatures is that after some amount of time (Zoning? Having the creator log out? Random? I don't know.), the signature seems to disappear for any gear that you didn't craft for yourself. The important thing to note is that the item window is still expanded, leaving room for a signature (whereas an unsigned item, like something from 1.0, doesn't have this extra space at the bottom). The lodestone will still display the appropriate signature as well. They just need to fix something...

    What I don't get about this is where the sigs are seen. I have HQ'd all of my own gathering gear and everything that's not on my highest main character, and zero signatures are visible to me in game.

    I can see them all on the website, and some of these are weeks old at this point. /confused

    It appears exactly where it does when viewed from the Lodestone--at the very bottom of the item. Like I said up above though, it's bugged and most of the time you'll just see a gap where a name would fit, but no name actually visible.

    The only stuff that displays names for me in-game without fail is stuff that I made for myself and have never put in a trade/retainer/market/mail.

    Thanks for the reply and clarification. Probably 98% of my gear falls in that exact category, and none of it displays signatures in game....ever.

    If you "examine" yourself, they aren't visible. If you open the character menu, you should see them.

    Perhaps that is the issue?

    If a piece of gear is traded to you it doesn't appear to lose signature either. The only shit I have that's still signed is my Fisher AF which I picked up in person as opposed to Mog Mail.

    I've been making Astral / RG stuff for FC mates and sig disappears as soon as I trade them (in person).

    It seems like they're almost playing around with the functionality. Right now, you can view them even on the Market Board and it seems to disappear shortly after you buy off of there.
