Here's how to create a signature:

[edit] Base Creation

1. Create a page for your signature here.

2. Edit the page and insert this text:
[[User:Username|Username]]
(replacing "Username" with your username)

[edit] Customization

If you want your name to be colored or have a different font, insert this text instead of the text in number two:
[[User:Username|<span style="font-family:font; color:#hexcode;">
Username</span>]]

If you want to link to your talk page and your contributions page, insert this text after the text in numbers two or three:

([[User talk:Username|talk]] &middot; [[Special:Contributions/Username|edits]])

Once you have the signature created the way you want it, save the edit. Then go to your preferences page. Be sure to follow all rules outlined in Biographical Wiki:Signature.

[edit] Preparing for Usage

Once you are at your preferences page, change the text in the "Your nickname (for signatures)" box to this:
{{User:Username/sig}}

Make sure the "Raw signatures (without automatic link)" option is checked, then save your preferences and empty your cache.

[edit] Usage

Now that your signature is set up, know how to work it:
