If you edit without logging in, your IP address will take the place of a username. Usernames and IP addresses are also stored in page histories as a record of who wrote what, so others can always verify signatures.
The common format to type a signature – two hyphens (or a long dash) followed by four tildes (
-- ~~~~) – is derived from the computer network Usenet, where two hyphens mark a signature block. Clicking on the signature button will add two hyphens alongside the signature (--~~~~).
The actual signatur string, the tildes, autæmateeclie get substitutit wi the uisername (linkt til the appropriate uiser page) n the timestamp (time/date), whan ye hain ae signed eedit. This heelps ither uisers tae follae the chronologeecal order o tauks, n tae identeefie the writer o ae parteecular comment.
The username part is controlled by the message MediaWiki:Signature, or MediaWiki:Signature-anon for users not logged-in.
$1 on those messages get substituted by the user name editing the page, and
$2 with either the user name, or a custom signature as specified in Help:Preferences. If the user enables raw signatures in preferences, the contents of the custom signature is used directly.
If you don't find the tilde on your keyboard, you can use the signature button of the default edit toolbar as a typing aid.

Registered users can customize their signature (the text displayed on the link pointing to your username) by changing the field "New signature:" in their preferences. By default, anything you enter there will be wrapped with
[[ ]]. To use a special linking (without this automatic link), you have to enable “Raw signatures.” Then you can add Wiki markup and also HTML (as far as allowed on the wiki) as you like, but the maximum length is 255 characters. Please note that striking signatures are often disliked by other users.
Note that if you customize your signature, you should avoid displaying the identity of another unrelated user account, unless you also own this account or are explicitly authorized by this user: the link should unambiguously point to your effective user page or talk page on the local wiki. However, changing your signature will not override the username that is recorded in page histories. Some wikis may also have defined a restricting policy about the usage of external links or images in signatures. Look at the policies documented and on enforced your local wiki about user accounts and identities.
Gif ye enable “Raw signaturs” bit dinna add onie customized signatur string, ye'll sign wi yer onlinkt uisername.
