Help:Signature

A signature is an easy way of showing who wrote the message you sent, without having to type your name every time.

  • ~~~~ writes your name and the date - this should always be used: Arancaytar | Send Reply! --- That is not dead which can eternal lie... 04:35, 2 Sep 2005 (CEST)

You can change your signature by going into your preferences page (third link in the top right corner of the screen), and editing the "User Nickname" field.

If you want to do more than just show your name, check the box that says "Raw signature". This means the signature will no longer automatically link to your user page. Then write the signature you want; don't forget to include a link to your user page however.

For example, your new signature might look as follows:

[[User:Name|]] | [[User talk:Name|Contact!]] | ''Any slogan/motto you'd want to put in a sig''

That would be shown as:

Name | Contact! | Any slogan/motto you'd want to put in a sig
