I'm still around and don't plan on going anywhere leading up to GW2's release. Lately I've just been busy catching up on movies/TV shows, tasks I've long put off, etc., to be in-game much. Nothing too important, but certainly stuff I'd like to get out of the way before I start gearing up for the long hours I plan to spend with GW2. Having done everything this side of speed clears 1000x by now, I just don't feel the desire to play GW1 as regularly as I used to. My time is better spent. Most people who I've enjoyed playing with over the years have taken their foot off of the pedal at this point - not to mention ANet has left this game in a decrepit state of development & progress - so my overall experience has been tempered somewhat. I still love the game as much as ever, but there just isn't anything surrounding the game itself to love anymore. The game is old, and for just about all intents and purposes, it has run its course. Maybe as GW2 approaches more people will regain interest in GW1 or at the very least be around more to hang out and stuff, but that's for time to say, not me. With them or without them, life goes on.
When I've been in-game, I've mainly been working on characters on my 2nd account. With St. Patrick's Day, Easter, and the Birthday drop weekends coming up soon I definitely plan on spending time farming for those drops. All in all, I should probably be in-game more over the next few weeks/months than I have in the past few weeks/months.

Figured it out. There is a setting that apparently you have to manually turn on your signatures so they show in posts.
That's one of the forum settings that has been known to magically reset itself from time to time. If you want to ensure your signature is shown with every post (without having to click it manually for each post), click the 'Profile' button at the top -> 'Preferences' -> set 'Always attach my signature' to 'Yes'. Also, if you occasionally get that problem where you get an email every time somebody replies to you, then be sure to set 'Always notify me of replies' to 'No'. That's another setting that can magically reset itself.
Be sure to click the 'save' button at the bottom instead of just clicking out.
