Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2004-11-13 02:00:22 UTC
I experienced myself, that signatures will be generated 
differently then I taught.

It would be "nice to have" a preciew already during making the 
preference setup.

See more details at:

res.29: provides more examples.

Just to know:

"|]]" is used to "escape" the "first" prefix.
There is the question what happens
a) if there is no first prefix as for [[foo|]], [[foo||]], [[foo|||]], ... 
and [[foo| ]], [[foo|| ]], ... (the last "clean links", see [[meta:Clean 
b) if more then one prefix should be escaped [[wiktionary:en:Main Page||]], 
[[wiktionary:en:Main Page|||]], ... (could probably be equivalent to 
[[wiktionary:en:Main Page|Main Page]]).
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2004-11-19 10:41:21 UTC
I realy have much time to think about thinks which make not much sense. But they show 
m*l*icious usage of sigs and may point to s*c*rity issues.

At a category and 
template was used in a sig.

Inclusion of now*k* in sigs seems to be problematical as well because a different behaviour 
as mentioned at bug 885 is experienced. With this knowledge v*nd*l*sm is just a matter of 
opening a page, four keystrokes and saving.

Please let me know if such issues should be reported here or not.

Regards Reinhardt

Is it that hard to hit ~~~~ in the sandbox and hit 
preview? Re: comment #1: there's nothing you 
can do in a nick signature that you can't type 

Closing as WONTFIX.
