Signing your posts

Hi, thanks for your local DC insights. FYI, posts to discussion pages (not just talk pages but any place where discussion takes place) should generally be signed with your name and the date. We have a function to automate this process by replacing strings of 4 consecutive tildes (~~~~) with your signature and timestamp on save. There's a button (3rd in from the left, looks like a pen writing a signature) at the top of the toolbar above the editing box which will insert them for you (at wherever your cursor is at that point) in case you forget what exactly to type. Note, edits to pages which are not discussions (most pages that don't have "talk" in the page title explicitly) should not be signed the same way you wouldn't want a signature in the body of an encyclopedia article. Thanks! --Jeremyb (talk) 16:09, 12 April 2012 (UTC)[reply]
