The January issue's In focus piece by DiplomatTesterMan mentioned Athaenara's signature gallery. Here it is – reformatted slightly for The Signpost – for readers' enjoyment.

Boxing it up

Flying the flags

Playing out the line

Wingdings and dingbats

Upside down

Infinite variety

Golly, this year has started off with a bang for my Wikipedia Signature Gallery!
First a mention in last month's Signpost (The Collective Consciousness of Admin Userpages) and now this month somebody copied nearly the whole darned thing?!?
The signature gallery project probably self-taught me as much about html markup and wikipedia editing details as any article I wrote. I started it on my talk page, of all places, trying the patience of some experienced editors at the time (first six sigs in November 2006).
What the heck, anyway, here's another doozy, what's not to love? – Athaenara 13:04, 28 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
While I'm responsible for the Gallery in my user space and "authored" it, I did not have anything to do with this Signpost page. I think it was a bit much, to put it mildly: a section or two with some commentary about why Bri thought it was worthy of Signpost inclusion would have been more interesting. But this is Wikipedia, where the editing never stops: hey, Bri, it's not to late to pare it down! – Athaenara 05:27, 1 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]
"By Athaenara" in the byline really bothered me, so I removed it (diff). – Athaenara 23:14, 1 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]
While all of these signatures are lovely, I've always been a fan for the good ole classic default one. Can't beat a classic. TonyBallioni (talk) 17:23, 28 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
