Hi everyone,

Should we use templates for signatures? I propose that we shouldn't use templates for signatures.

Supportvoting Support - provided they are located in user namespace (preferably under _that_ user's name) this keeps pagecount real and provides an outlet for exubrient users. additionally it cuts down on source jargon as illustrated by RC above. plus i made mine before finding this forum as its in my prefs for wikia.  Dr. F  (Talk) 20:41, March 12, 2011 (UTC)

  • Why shouldn't we? I think it should be optional. Many signatures are quite long and it would be simpler and better looking if they had it in a template. Take my signature on the Call of Duty wiki for example, without the template it would look like this:

[[File:20755-Clipart-Illustration-Of-A-Happy-Boy-In-Uniform-Holding-A-Basketball-On-His-Hip.jpg|25px|link=User:Happy Boy/Special:Contributions/Happy_Boy]]<font style="background:black">[[User:Happy Boy|<font color=silver>'''Happy Boy'''</font>]] <small><font color=white>''Whats up?''</font></small> <sup>[[User_talk:Happy Boy|<font color=orange>'''''T'''''</font>]] [[User:Happy Boy/Thoughts of me|<font color=orange>'''''M'''''</font>]] [[Special:Editcount/Happy Boy|<font color=orange>'''''E'''''</font>]]</sup></font>.

So I personally think that signature templates should be optional. After all, it is optional on the Call of Duty wiki just for an example. 20755-Clipart-Illustration-Of-A-Happy-Boy-In-Uniform-Holding-A-Basketball-On-His-Hip Happy Boy(Talk?) 22:30, October 29, 2010 (UTC)
