Your sig is too long. On normal talk pages it's not a problem because it just gets dumped wholesale on the page, but in LQT it exceeds the maximum length allowed for a sig. If you try to copy paste the code (with the choose part substed, e.g. replace it with "idgeter") into the signature box in preferences, you'll see that it won't fit there either. The maximum length is 255 characters.

I'm guessing that means he should put a template of his sig (e.g. {{User:Fallacy/sig}}) in the "Signature" box in his Preferences, instead of the bare code?

Alternatively, the following code results in almost the same appearance (except the contributions link is also big-ed), and fits even with "idgeter" (the longest option in the choose function), and leaves you with a few characters to spare:


<big>[[User:Fallacy|<span style="color:green">'''''F'''''<sub>{{<includeonly>safesubst:</includeonly>#choose:5=ucker|arter|idgeter|litzer|lubber|lucked|lint}}</sub></span>]]<sup>[[User talk:Fallacy|<span style="color:#B80935">talk to me :D</span>]]|[[Special:Contributions/Fallacy|<span style="color:orange">see my shit</span>]]</sup></big>

-- Nx / talk08:53, 26 December 2011

Well, okay then. I was going to make a new sig, but I guess that works as well.

Also, I already am using User:Fallacy/sig.

What Stabby meant was to remove the subst part, but I'd rather you didn't.

-- Nx / talk09:05, 26 December 2011

Oh.

I just remembered to put back in safe substitute. Now it's much nicer. :D

Well, what I and a few others do is put your sig as a template (e.g. {{User:Fallacy/sig}}) on a second subpage in your userspace called User:Fallacy/sigsubt, and paste that (as {{User:Fallacy/sigsubst}}) in the "Signature" box under your Preferences, instead. That way, your signature always appears as a template every time you sign. (This also means you could make your signature as big as you want.)

But, Nx isn't a big fan of that approach, given it burdens the server with a ton more templates to process. But I prefer it anyways, because I happen to like my massive sigs.

Doesn't SAFESUBST make that redundant?
