(I see no reason for users to not be able to link to user, talkpage, and contribs in their signature. In fact everyone should have a userpage and a talkpage link. That is a general accessibility issue.)
(templates that only exist here should not be used in signatures, you will just break it off the site.)

Keep in mind that these policies are ultimately guidelines. If it's found that a policy restricts something that the reason the policy was created didn't intend to restrict, then the policy should be changed.

This is the Narutopedia's policy on signatures.

Summary Edit

In order to identify users and attribute comments on talk pages, forum threads, and other discussion pages on Narutopedia, comments must be signed by the user making the comments on all the odd numbered namespaces and also on ns:110. Signatures in violation of the below policy are to be replaced with the {{unsigned|USERNAME}} or {{unsigned|USERNAME|~~~~~}} for a time stamp.

The standard signature on Wikia (produced via ~~~~ or ~~~ to provide a signature without the date) consists of a simple link to your user page and talk page. This can be customised in your preferences under "Signature" in "My Info" tab. You can create a custom signature by checking the "Custom signature" box, and entering the MediaWiki code for your new signature in the "Custom Signature" field.

Restrictions Edit

There are several restrictions you must follow when creating a customised signature:

  • You must include your actual user name in your signature: nicknames are not allowed.
  • You must have a link back to your userpage and talkpage in your signature.
  • You must have a maximum of two defined colors. The timestamp must remain black and does not count towards this limit.
  • You may only have one picture in your signature. This picture may not:
    • Be more than 20 pixels in height (this limit exists for a reason)
    • Violate the Image policy.
  • Your signature must include the timestamp in all public usage. Additionally, the timestamp must include the following:
    • The timestamp must be in UTC format.
    • The timestamp must retain all information present in the default timestamp.
    • The timestamp month must not use a confusing date format such as MM/DD/YY and DD/MM/YY. English month names work, as well as ISO 8601 style dates.

Forbidden Edit

The following are specifically prohibited:

  • Magic words such as {{PAGENAME}}.
  • Line-breaks (<br/>).
  • Superscript and/or subscript nesting likethis.
  • Background and/or border colours.
  • Use of templates that only exist on Narutopedia
