Complete signature required

This has probably been aked before, but I do not know how to search among the topics:

When answering using "Edit source", and manually signing, the reply-link is only added if four tilde is used. If three tilde or five tilde is used the signature will lack time stamp or only be time stamp respectively.

Is this on purpose? There must be very few scenarios where three or five tilde is not also an attempt to be a signature, and never as final letters. LittleGun (talk) 13:13, 10 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

The whole data structure is based on the assumption that every comment has an author and a date. If only three tildes were used, it’s impossible to determine the date reliably; if five tildes were used, it’s impossible to determine the author reliably (remember that comments don’t stay forever where they were placed, they may be moved, archived etc., so using the page history is not reliable). Placing {{Unsigned }} after a such comment (with both author and timestamp filled) will make the reply link appear, which can be used to fix these incomplete signatures. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 20:49, 10 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

Ping or no ping?

Source: Using the automatic dropdown from typing "@" results in "@[[User:User|User]" being shown, from what I understand, manually typing this wouldn't result in a ping, so I think it's confusing. EnTerbury (talk) 15:22, 4 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

@EnTerbury: It will result in a ping, I believe; this edit should be an example of that. Jdforrester (WMF) (talk) 15:52, 4 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Leaving the browser

Hello, I use the Firefox browser and have the following problem in de.WP. When I double click on a word in order to create a link, then the browser asks me if I want to stay on the page or leave it loosing the content that I have entered. Thanks to the browser, I don't just leave the page (unintentionally) but can click on "stay on this page". - I have just noticed that this happens to me on de.WP, but not here on the mediawiki.org-wiki. 77.164.32.65 07:41, 1 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
