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
  • G2G
