Here is how to "sign" a comment, especially in Help:Research Notes.
How to Use
To add your timestamped signature to a page, type four tildes (~~~~).
The tildes will be automatically replaced with a link to your profile and the current time once you've saved the profile or page. It will not display when you preview the page. Example: Nelson-3486 01:37, 5 September 2019 (UTC).
Three tildes ~~~ will create a link to your profile without the timestamp. Example: Nelson-3486.
Five tildes ~~~~~ will just add the timestamp. Example: 05:00, 5 September 2019 (UTC).
Where to Use
Signatures will work on any wiki pages (profiles, free-space profiles, category pages, etc.).
They are most commonly used in the Research Notes section of profiles.
The signature won't work if you try to use it in:
- References (<ref></ref>)
- The box for explaining your changes
- Profile comments
- Private messages
- <nowiki> tags
- The alternate text for an internal link
