Here's how to create a signature:

Base Creation

1. Create a page for your signature here, replacing "Username" with your Username:
http://www.wikicities.com/index.php/User:Username/sig
2. Edit the page and insert this text:
[[User:Username|Username]]

Customization

If you want your name to be colored or have a different font, insert this text instead of the text in number two:
<span style="font-family:font; color:#hexcode;">
[[User:Username|Username]]
</span>

If you want to link to your talk page and your contributions page, insert this text after the text in numbers two or three:

([[User talk:Username|talk]] &middot; [[Special:Contributions/Username|edits]])

Once you have the signature created the way you want it, save the edit. Then go to your preferences page.

Preparing for Usage

Once you are at your preferences page, change the text in the "Your nickname (for signatures)" box to this:
{{User:Username/sig}}

Make sure the "Raw signatures (without automatic link)" option is checked, then save your preferences and empty your cache.

Usage

Now that your signature is set up, know how to work it:

Code Turns into Appears as
~~~ {{User:User/sig}} User
~~~~ {{User:User/sig}} 00:00, 1 January 2000 (UTC) User 00:00, 1 January 2000 (UTC)
~~~~~ 00:00, 1 January 2000 (UTC) 00:00, 1 January 2000 (UTC)
