WTF my sig is now getting subst'ed rathher than being placed as a template, has someone been buggering around somewhere?--Maj Sir Elvis KUN FIC MDA VFH Bur. CM and Bar UGM F@H (Petition) 21:22, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Yeah... Check out your preferences, and you'll see that "SUBST:" gets added after you save any template-type thing in your raw signature... Once again, it's a "feature", not a bug... --⇔ Sir Mon€¥$ignSTFU F@H|MDA|+S 21:28, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

It's not a problem for me, because instead of typing --~~~~ like a commoner, I'm awesome and actually type into the page --{{User:SimulacrumCaputosis/sig#}}~~~~~. I save my four-tilde bit for just a plain signature, in case I post a comment in a thread I've already been actively discussing, so my sig doesn't kill too many eyes. --PiratehattieCap'n SimzorzAr, Matey!19:11, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

I hope Uncyclopedia never puts a ban on outrageous signatures. I mean, if you can't have them here, where else? UnFun!! --NERD42  EMAIL  TALK  H2G2  PEDIA  NEWS  17:05, 14 April 2006 (UTC)


For everyone unaware of the other thread or too lazy to go to it, I quote:

Since the upgrade, I've seen a lot of users' sigs spilling out onto the discussion pages. Here's how you fix it:

  1. Create a second subpage that references the first. For example, if your sig is at User:Me/sig, the second page would contain only {{User:Me/sig}}.
  2. Put the second page in your signature preferences instead of your real one.

The current version of MediaWiki seems to preface any template inclusion in your signature with SUBST:, but it doesn't check whether that template has any inclusions itself. By putting your signatures two layers deep, you can keep them from being exposed.--Algorithm (talk) 20:55, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Thank you, and good night! --⇔ Sir Mon€¥$ignSTFU F@H|MDA|+S 21:43, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
