What is a signature?
Your signature is your unique identifier that should be used whenever you post to a talk page.
Formatting your signature
Your signature is formatted through your preferences page as described in the lesson on Preferences. If you check the box that says "Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link)," your signature will display as plain text. If you do not check that box, your signature will be hypertext, allowing a user to email you by clicking the link.
Using the signature
- Missionaries should sign their posts on talk pages at the end of a comment or explanation.
- This is done by using multiple "tildes" as shown: ~~~~.
- The tilde is the symbol on the upper left key on your keyboard.
- Here is an example of a signature using four tildes:
- John Smith 16:49, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
The signature shows:
- John Smith - Your user name
- 16:49 - Time of your comment - formatted: hour and minute using the 24 hour clock.
- 15 August 2015 - Date of your comment - formatted: day month and year
- (UTC) means Universal Time Coordinated. This is the time zone that applies to when you made your comment. (UTC is basically the time in Greenwich, England, which also referred to as GMT and Zulu time.)
How many tildes?
The number of tildes determines the kind of signature that is displayed at the end of your comment.
