in thread New Behavior for Signatures?

I see,

I had a quick glance at add_signature; it issues its warning without looking for a op=preview param.

If the param is set, then it should return the warning, else, it should assume that the display is not a preview and thus not show the warning. But I guess it is implemented that way to warn people who do not preview their nodes.

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

Re^4: New Behavior for Signatures? (is bug)

    I consider it a bug, but not a serious one. Checking for op=preview may not be the correct solution because it wouldn't catch problems introduced right before "create" -- but I'm not sure such are caught at all anyway. But this warning should not appear before content is editted.

    The solution I would use is to fill in a default template when it is empty but the sig isn't emply. This default template should end in a couple of newlines. The start of it should be small, perhaps "<!-- Type here -->". Someone volunteered to try to do this long ago, but I don't ever expect schedules from volunteers so I'm not surprised nor disappointed that it hasn't been done.
