When editing a page ..
.. with a discussion, wiki users often click the signature button above and in
sequence the save button below.
Their is a risk of R.S.I., and I would like to propose to have a fourth button
"Sign & Save"
SAVE SIGN&SAVE PREVIEW CANCEL
Clicking onto SIGN&SAVE would then insert the --~~~~ at the current cursor
position and then save that page.
I would like to have this additional function.

Can we have such a fourth button or write an extension ?
I assume that the RSI comment was meant as a joke, and that the joke was due to
the dubious or diminutive benefit from this proposed change. I prefer having
editors encouraged to press a preview button after signing, but personally I
would find an extra button for this a waste of space. Maybe someone would like

It was not, seriously.
But as everyone appears to like the CharInsert extension, I was simply
suggesting something similar but with the additional functionality to
immediately save & leave the page (after inserting the signature --~~~~).
This could be tricky. If you edit in the middle of a page, how does the server
know where to put the tildes? (Diffs are unreliable in general).
