Description Jonathan Kovaciny 2006-03-29 19:54:36 UTC
On Talk and Special pages, could there be a small javascript that checks to see
whether the user has typed ~~~~ or clicked the signature button, and, if not,
would pop up a confirmation box asking if the ~~~~ should be added? This would
reduce the number of unsigned comments significantly, and I don't think it would
be that complicated of a script to write. There would need to be an option in
user preferences to disable the script, of course.

This sounds like it would be damn irritating for a large number of users,
especially when editing talk pages without leaving a comment (spelling
corrections, refactoring, etc.) - feel free to write a script for your custom
JavaScript file.
