Degenret put this on my talk page and proceeded to edit a few of my signatures. Since signature preferences remains the same across all of Wikia (not sure about Central), I can't use a signature template because there are no such templates on other wikis. You might consider revoking a rule which you're effectively trying to enforce across all of wikia, unless you're intentionally trying to prevent people from using any other Wikia-hosted wiki.

I'd also point out that signature templates were originally introduced to counter the exact problem discussed there. But it was for sixty-line signatures, not a single colour. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 08:45, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

If the only thing different about your sig is the font colour, I don't see anything wrong with you not using a template. I think the discussion was referring to "complicated" signatures that were 300+ characters. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 13:25, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Indeed. Back in the day when it was first discussed, that was exactly the reason. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 13:34, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
I have mine rigged to work where my sig exists otherwise use a simple non-template one. This works fine for me at least.
{{subst:#ifexist:Template:Signatures/Catcrewser|{{subst:Nosubst|Signatures/Catcrewser}}|[[User:Catcrewser|Catcrewser]] [[User talk:Catcrewser|<sup>Talk</sup>]]}}

Maybe we should recommend this or something similar? - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 15:37, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Indeed. Its already stated to do so here. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 15:48, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
That one is a bit different, it means if I'm at the RS Wiki sign with this. Mine means if I have a signature template use that, otherwise use a simple one with just links to my user page and talk. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 14:34, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Ah yeah, I see the difference. Good thinking Smile Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 15:10, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Here is a more powerful version, it works on wikis without Template:Nosubst:
{{Subst:#ifexist:Template:Signatures/Catcrewser|{{Subst:#ifexist:Template:Nosubst|{{Subst:Nosubst|Signatures/Catcrewser}}|{{Subst:Signatures/Catcrewser}}}}|[[User:Catcrewser|TehKittyCat]] [[User_talk:Catcrewser|<sup>Talk</sup>]]}}
