Signatures can be a link to a user page, a link to a userpage and a date, or just a date. These work by typing special wiki code. Signatures help identify the user making the comment and should be used on all talk pages. By default, signature text is just a link to your userpage, but you can customize them at Special:Preferences. A more in depth guide can be found here. These can use colour and can have more than one link in them.

Different types of signatures

There are 3 different types of signature, each can be used by typing different numbers of tildes. Below are the tildes, their wiki markup and a description

  • Three tildes ('~~~'): A simple link to the userpage. e.g. User:tacopill
  • Four tildes ('~~~~'): A link to the userpage and a timestamp (date and time). This should be used on all talk pages e.g. User:tacopill 11:58, 3 January 2011 (MST)
  • Five tildes ('~~~~~'): A timestamp. Not used very often. e.g. 11:58, 3 January 2011 (MST)
