Custom signatures are a way of identifying a user's talk page messages besides simple text, and can be modified in any way text can. Small images are also allowed.

How to make and use custom signatures

To make a basic custom signature:

  1. Go to Special:MyPage/sig
  2. Copy-paste [[User:Example|Example]] ([[User talk:Example|talk]]), replacing Example with your username, then make modifications as desired.
  3. Go to Special:Preferences, scroll to the signature section, and paste {{User:Example/sig}}, replacing Example with your username, then check the treat signature as wikitext box on.
  4. Scroll to the bottom and hit save. Signing comments with ~~~~ now uses your custom signature.

Guidelines for custom signautures

  • Your signature needs to identify who you are.
  • Text should contrast the page background enough to be legible.
  • Don't make the text massive or too small to read.
  • Be sure to link to your userpage and user talk page.
  • Don't make signatures exessively long.
  • No line breaks.
  • Be sure to put closing tags on any formatting.
  • No more than two images, and images must be 24px high or shorter and inline. ([[File:Filename.ext|x24px]])
