Creating Signatures Tutorial

What is a signature?

A Signature, or sig, is what Wiki members use to sign their talk page comments with.

Rules and Guidelines

  • All members are asked to sign their comments, and can do so in three different ways;
  1. Manually typing it with each comment.
  2. Creating one with Wiki Coding or images and saving the code in your preferences.
  3. Leaving your preferences blank and using a default one.

Creating Signatures

With only the first three or four steps, a standard signature can be made from these suggestions. The user in this example will be called "member." You may make your own sig by copying the code into your preferences and changing Member to your username.
