Why do people list their equipment in their signature area?

    Does it prove something? What's the point? Seriously. Are you cool if your list is long? Does it show you're 'not a scrub'? Please explain someone. I'm not knocking those that do it, I just don't get it.

    Some members I'm sure feel that by listing their equipment, it will help other members answer their bidding and estimating questions more accurately if they know what equipment they use. That maybe could be one reason.

    Yes, I too wish everyone would list their equipment (I am gonna get around to it soon), you can really tell a lot about that person (like walking into someones bathroom and looking in the medicine cabinet), their style, perhaps their flexibility, innovativeness, etc. and certain specific questions about equipment can be directed where need be.

    If you think seeing long signatures in annoying (like me), you can set your preferences so they don't show.

    I get a lot of pm's from people wanting to know how I like my equipment. If I didn't list it they wouldn't have been able to ask because they wouldn't have known that I have the equipment. The equipment list can also give other users an idea of the size of the business and the services they perform. (i.e. if there is an areator in the list the business probably provides areation).

    I think the real reason is ego. Look what I got!
