Description Chris Wood 2005-09-25 22:13:26 UTC
A user's default nickname is currently [[User:Username|Username]]. It should be
[[User:Username|]], which is easier on the eyes, takes up less space in
wikisource, and also suggests to the user that that kind of thing is possible.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2005-09-25 22:32:56 UTC
Au contraire; some of us were discussing over at en-wiki that the default ought
to be something like [[User:Username|Username]] ([[User_talk:Username|talk]]) -
it's awkward getting to a user's talk page if it isn't in their signature. Space
in the source code isn't much of an issue, to be honest; although I admit that
the HTML and associated code for some people's fancy-arse signatures does
extract the urine somewhat.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2005-09-26 00:55:18 UTC
The default is blank.
