This is basically my view of what signatures should be. Basically they are there for identification. Personalisation is a good thing to encourage, but shouldn't impact on the primary purpose of the sig (identification) or the wiki itself -- boxy 02:50, 11 October 2015 (BST)

General Comments & Overall Structure

Is it OK if I make a couple of punctuation fixes? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 03:54, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Sure, although I expect to add/change it over the next few days -- boxy 05:59, 11 October 2015 (BST)

Why do we need signatures

Shouldn't the signature be required to link to the user's page (or character page) "and/or" their talk page? (or maybe "and"?) Bob Moncrief EBDW! 03:51, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Yep, "and/or" -- boxy 05:59, 11 October 2015 (BST)

Personalized signatures

Disruptive signatures

Better, but I still say limit the visible length to the 255 character limit of the Nickname field in Preferences. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 05:30, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

I really think we should worry about defining hard limits in separate amendments later (for ones that arn't already in place) -- boxy 05:59, 11 October 2015 (BST)
As Boxy. The closer we get to general "don't be a dick" rules, the better. This isn't a massive community any more, we don't need very precise or particular rules, just lots of mod discretion.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 12:39, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
