Have you ever noticed a custom signature like the one Dcn. Andrew uses on discussion pages? If you want to know how to do it, here's how:

  1. Go to your user page. It should be something like http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/User:Name, where Name is your username
  2. Create an article by typing /sig after your user name in your browser's address bar. For example: http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/User:Name/sig
  3. This should prompt you to create a new article User:Name/sig
  4. You can start the article by clicking on the link that says something like Start the Name/sig article. In reality, you can call the article anything you like
  5. Copy and/or modify this sample custom signature or view other's custom signatures for ideas (e.g. Dcn. Andrew's or Joe Rodger's):
    • [[User:Name|<strong>Your Name or Nickname</strong>]] <sup> [[User talk:Name|talk]] [[Special:Contributions?target=Name|contribs]] </sup>
    • This sample would produce a signature similiar to this: —Name talk contribs 12:00, 16 Jun 2005 (EDT)
  6. Paste your modified version in your /sig article and save the page
  7. Go to your preferences page
  8. Under User data, look for the box that says "Your nickname (for signatures):"
  9. Type {{User:Name/sig}} in that box, check the box that reads "Raw signatures (without automatic link)," and save your preferences
  10. Now whenever you are talking on a discussion page and press the signature button on the editing bar, it will have your custom signature on it
