  1. At the end of your comments, type four tildes (~), like this: ~~~~
  2. Save changes, and your signature will appear.

When someone doesn't sign[edit]

If someone leaves an unsigned comment, because they forgot or don't know how, you can add this template at the end, with their username (or IP address) and the time/date of the comment. E.g. this text:

{{unsigned|User1|17 November 2009}}

Appears like this:

comment by User1, 17 November 2009.

Don't be offended[edit]

Don't be offended if someone does this to a comment you've left - just take it as a friendly reminder or (if you're new) an explanation of how to sign pages in a wiki.

See also[edit]

  • {{Unsigned}} - a template for marking unsigned posts on talk pages
  • {{Unsigned2}} - similar to the above template, but takes its arguments in the same order that they appear on a talk page historyW
