Issue #3


Written by: Joe

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know I am hardly the one to talk about complicated signatures. But anyway, here goes. Why do we have this signature — Joe Click Here for Awesomeness — instead of a simple — 2+2=4. Probably? I assume this is for grabbing one's attention. Everyone wants to be well-known. I mean, when you see:

Stop! Hammer TimeTalk Contribs #http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/3/3d/Mchammer.gif

...you would probably click on it, making Bonscott29 here more well-known. A lot of users do it (I think) to display views or advertise separate pages, such as:

Prayer.png Jedi Talk HS Log Tracker Summoning.png

The link to the fluffy bunny page and pictures obviously would not be there on ~~~~. Coming to that, I think everyone now uses {{SUBST:Nosubst|Signatures/yournamehere}} apart from me. I always have to sit and type {{Signatures/2+2=4. Probably}}~~~~~. Sigh.

Anyway, if everyone reverted to a simple link, then I suppose more complicated usernames would stand out. Like Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. He would be very well known, but Az might be left out more often. Anyhow, I think it would be nicer if we all did a Christine and went back to simple linking for signatures. This will never happen, of course, so for now let us stick with the mesmerising MC Hammer.
