So I found out you can customize your user signature. I know how to get to the page to change it but I don't know what I'm susposed to type to change it how I want and I don't understand code. What I want to do is change it so the text shows my name with links to my message wall, contributions, and guest book. It would be stylized (minus the color) like this signature that I copy and pasted- Creeper (T • C • G). All of that would be a yellow bolded color so it looks Star Wars themed. Finally, it would all be inclosed in a black filled in border that's rounded. I've also seen people use pictures in thier signatures so I would like to put my profile picture on both sides of the signature. I have no idea how complicated the code for all this would be so if it's too complicated, could you help me in just creating a simple signature to get me started? Thanks to anyone who helps!!
Anyways, you can go to Special:Preferences (a link to it can also be found on the avatar dropdown on the top global nav) and scroll down; You will find a signature field. Check the "I want to use wikitext in my signature" box below it, and you can then type the code for your signature in the field and click the save button at the end of the page. Done
Maybe you got it already, but just in case - you put the code on your preferences (Creeper explaind the directions above, don't forget to check the "use wikitext"), and then to use it on a page or on a message you put 3 tildes ~~~, or 4 tildes to add a timestamp.
FYI, HumansCanWinElves, you can get someone's current avatar by examining the image URL on a page like this. You can also use /api/v1.
I tried that with inspecting, but apparently their image is stored on the domain http://static.wikia.nocookie.net and don't show up by embedding the URL. Interestingly, I see now that your and mine avatar pics are stored in the domain vignette.wikia.nocookie.net which can be embedded. Do you have any idea what's the reason of the difference?
Edit: Oh wait, yours and mine are actually the same pic that comes from the default pics. That can easily be the reason.
