In my quest to eliminate green puzzle pieces in the RTE, I've stumbled on pages like User:Skuld/Sig. There are 243 users with signature templates that I know of (= pages starting with User: and ending in sig or Sig or s/Signature).
- If I substitute these, pages get lots of wikicode dumped on them, but the RTE would probably hide that. For most signatures, anyway.
- I could replace them with plain links to the person's userpage (like the default for new accounts), but that would change their signatures.
This problem gets easier, but does not go away, with the purge of old User talk: pages, because these templates are used elsewhere as well. (Of course I'd like to delete old talk everywhere, but I fear that's not going to get consensus.)
What do you think?
