Voting policy

The Wiki's signature policy is as follows. In order to identify users and attribute comments and votes on talk pages, forum threads, and other discussion pages on the wiki, user comments must be signed. This is particularly important on pages where voting is involved: votes which are unsigned and undated may be considered invalid.

The standard signature on FANDOM (produced via ~~~~) consists of a simple link to your user page, talk page, and the timestamp. This can be customized in your preferences under "user profile." You can create a custom signature by checking the "Custom signature" box, and entering the wikitext for your new signature in the "Nickname" field.

Restrictions

  • You may only have one picture in your signature. This picture may not:
    • Be an animated .gif file.
    • Be more than 20 pixels in height
    • Violate our user image policy
  • You may have one default colour and one defined colour or two defined colours.
  • You must have a link back to your userpage in your signature.
  • You may include only one extra relevant link in your signature. You may use it to link to your talk page, contributions, etc.
  • Your signature must include the timestamp (in UTC format) in all public usage. Additionally, the timestamp must include the following:
    • All information present in the default timestamp.
    • The month must be displayed as text, not numbers (to avoid confusion over MM/DD/YY and DD/MM/YY formats).
  • If you are using a template for your custom signature (such as {{User:Username/Sig}}), you must enter {{subst:User:Username/Sig}} in your preferences.

The following are specifically prohibited:

  • The color magenta, which is specifically used by administrators.
  • Magic words such as {{PAGENAME}}.
  • Line-breaks (<br />).
  • Superscript and/or subscript nesting likethis.
  • Background and/or border colours.
  • Randomization scripts for colour and/or font.
