Gif ye eedit wioot logging in, yer IP address will tak the steid o ae uisername. Uisernames n IP addresses ar foreby stored in page histeries aes ae record o wha wrote whit, sae that ithers can aye verifie signaturs.

The commyn format tae type ae signatur – twa hyphens (or ae lang dash) follaed bi fower tildes (-- ~~~~) – is derived fae the computer netwairk Uisenet, whaur twa hyphens maurk ae signatur block. Mynd that the hyphens or dash arna insertit autaemateeclie n hae tae be entered (--~~~~).

The actual signatur string, the tildes, autæmateeclie get substitutit wi the uisername (linkt til the appropriate uiser page) n the timestamp (time/date), whan ye hain ae signed eedit. This heelps ither uisers tae follae the chronologeecal order o tauks, n tae identeefie the writer o ae parteecular comment.

The username part is controlled by the message MediaWiki:Signature, or MediaWiki:Signature-anon for users not logged-in. $1 on those messages get substituted by the user name editing the page, and $2 with either the user name, or a custom signature as specified in Help:Preferences . If the user enables raw signatures in preferences, the contents of the custom signature is used directly.

Gif ye dinna fynd the tilde oan yer keybuird, ye can uise the signatur button   o the defaut eedit tiolbaur aes ae typin aid.

Signaturs dinna wairk in eedit ootlines (thay dinna owerset fae ~~~~ thaur), bit o coorse thaur'd be nae need tae uise this in aen eedit ootline. The date n yer uiser name ar recordit n displeyed again eedits oniehou.

Mynd that timestamps ar nou formattit bi defaut n hained accordin til the defaut locale conventions (leid, screept, date n time format) uised oan ilka wiki, n na accordin til the conventions o yer nou preferred lied.

Custymised signaturs

Registered uisers can custymise thair signatur (the pairt atween the twa hyphens n the timestamp) bi chyngin the field "New seegnatur:" in thair preferances . Bi defaut, oniething that ye enter thaur will be wrappit wi [[ ]]. Tae uise ae byordiair linkin (wioot this autæmateec link), ye hae tae enable “Treat signature as wikitext (athoot ae automatic airtin tae yer uiser page)”. Than ye can add Wiki maurkup n foreby HTML (aes faur aes permittit oan the wiki) aes ye like, bit the mucklest length is 255 chairacters. Please mynd that strikin signaturs ar aften disliked bi ither uisers.

Mynd that gif ye custymise yer signatur, ye shid avoid displeyin the ideentitie o anither onrelatit uiser accoont, onless ye ain this accoont ava, or ar expleecitlie permittit bi this uiser: the link shid clearlie point til yer effecteeve uiser page or tauk page oan the local wiki. Houever, chyngin yer signatur will na owerride the uisername that's recordit in page histeries. Foreby, some wikis micht hae defyned ae restreectin policie aneat the uissage o ootby links or eemages in signaturs.
