And can you tell me the formula for doing so? Thanks.Aguabottle 03:59, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Alright. First of all you can customize your formula in general by going into your preferences (on the top right). There it says signature. You can either type in what you want your signature to be there or you can type {{subst:User:'''your username'''/sig}}. The latter choice will take that user page of yours and substitute it whenever you use ~~~~.
If you choose to just type it in there you again have two choices. Either a "raw" signature or not. A raw signature you have to type all the links in for yourself while if it is not raw it will automatically link everything you type to your userpage. A raw signature allows multiple links in a signature. My signature is very simple and is just typed in (in "raw" mode) as -- [[User:DarkJedi613|DarkJedi613]] <sup>([[User_talk:DarkJedi613|Talk]])</sup>. If you plan to do any colors, etc. I suggest you use the template version above.
So you would create a page at User:'''Your username'''/sig and put whatever you wanted on it. Generally to do styling you have to use font tags or style tags. I suggest style tags. There is a pretty good tutorial here. An example signature might be: -- [[User:DarkJedi613|<span style="color: orange; size: 1.1em; ">DarkJedi613</span>]] <sup style="background-color: black; border: 1px dotted red;">([[User talk:DarkJedi613|<span style="color: lime;">Talk</span>]])</sup> (Look below for what it looks like.)
P.S. If we actually come up with a good tutorial I'll formalize it and make it into a "help" page. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:42, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
