I said "Let there be discussion,"

and then there was discussion.

New signature[edit]

Why won't it be accepted into the signature slot in preferences? "Invalid raw signature. Check HTML tags." I took some code from Neil's siggy, combined it with some other code from a friend in Warhammer wiki, and then changed some colors around. What is wrong with my signature? D: BTW, It's also over at my sandbox --Ѧrtaxerxes (TalkContribs) 11:19, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

It very well might be too long for the sig box. I mean, it cuts off after the first closing bracket of your name. Perhaps you should do what Neil did. (Sig.js) Aquadrizzt (talk)(contribs) 18:41, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Unless you posted them manually, I don't see an issue with your signature (the one you used above and on your sandbox). - Infinite - talk 18:45, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
I copied the code from my sandbox. When I sign normally (since I haven't been able to change it) it's --~~Ѧrtѧxϵrxϵs~~ 20:20, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
I'm going to see if shortening it makes it work. --~~Ѧrtѧxϵrxϵs~~ 20:20, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
I changed it to just Ѧrtaxerxes and I still get the same error. --~~Ѧrtѧxϵrxϵs~~ 20:27, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Then I would follow Neil's example to implement the signature. It's likely too many characters for the signature settings. - Infinite - talk 20:32, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
What is Neil's example then? I don't know what he did. --~~Ѧrtѧxϵrxϵs~~ 20:39, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
He put his signature settings in a Javascript and I reckon he has his signature settings set to call the code from that javascript. This by-passes the original signature settings and limitations, I believe. (Though I'm not very experienced with javascript.) - Infinite - talk 20:41, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Alright, I have NO idea how to do that. I guess I'll just have to put it on hold for now --~~Ѧrtѧxϵrxϵs~~ 20:44, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Or you could just ask Neil... Aquadrizzt (talk)(contribs) 23:56, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Good idea :P I decided on just typing it manually, but asking Neil might be better =D --Ѧrtaxerxes --00:01, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

I figured it out. I made my signature a link to my sandbox. In the future I will make a separate subpage for my signature and link to that. If it's too long, just tell me and I'll use the shortened one. --Ѧrtaxerxes (TalkContribs) 00:14, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

I think it is a) fine lengthwise and b)its a subjective measure, there is no policy to signatures other than that they can't be taller than 19px... Aquadrizzt (talk)(contribs) 00:20, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
Damn, problem. It only works fine on the first line. When it's an indent, it messes up. I'll just shorten it to --Ѧrtaxerxes 00:27, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
I rather like the non-box one. --NeilUser Neil2250 sig icon5 Anti.png 00:45, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
