I was seeing a campaign today and found that applicants were disqualified because their signature space has been disabled. Is it new addition? What's the criteria?

Theymos removed the signatures temporarily of some people who were caught participating in an alt coin giveaways. See here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2045928.msg20386758#msg20386758

In some signature campaigns, participants must post in a special Ann Thread. That is against the forum rules.
Users participate in such campaigns get banned from using signatures.

No that's not why.

Wish campaigns would only accept sr members and up, or failing that,  theymos would permanently ban noobs from campaigns.  The sbeer number of people who can't read or write is staggering,  and it's because they're being paid to post.  Nothing new, just adding a bitch.

That is the ANN thread which is constantly being bumped because it is one of the criteria of the campaign for their users to get paid. As a result, all the members receive a 30 or 60 day ban for their signature spaces.

I've seen many campaigns did that same thing as that ANN thread however, the bump posts seem to be spammy and therefore not even contributing at the least bit.

I've suggested this before. I don't think lower ranks should be allowed a signature at all unless they maybe donate for it but if we allowed say only Members or Full Members and up to have one it would just encourage more shitposting farming on an industrial scale and we'd then have even more threads every day asking how you get a signature like we do with activity (because people only want to know how activity works so they get a bigger signature to join sig campaigns). That's why I think we should remove signatures from ranks altogether and nobody can have one unless they donate. That way it would stop people solely signing up in droves and creating dozens or sometimes hundreds of accounts to milk signature campaigns because they wouldn't be able to afford the $50 fee or whatever for the signature. This would then instantly put a stop to farming and people who are poor and can barely speak English signing up just trying to earn a living. Many of them have no idea about bitcoin and when they can't speak English very well if at all this just leads them to copy and pasting others content em mass and dozens of people are getting caught doing this every day.
