Another complaint: when signing messages on talk pages, please just write your message, then follow it with <code><nowiki>--~~~~</nowiki></code>. This makes your user page automatically linked, too.

This needs to change. The camel case representation no longer automatically creates links, and the MediaWiki standard is to use the User namespace.
Docs is working very hard at getting to each subproject, and FWN is on that list that we haven't gotten to yet. --Ian Weller 01:52, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
