Extend the tilde range of signatures to do other things
Open, Needs TriagePublic



~~~ gives the signature without the timestamp

~~~~ gives the signature with the timestamp

~~~~~ gives the timestamp

I propose we extend this to also have

~~~~~~ plain Username, linked (e.g [[User:Headbomb|Headbomb]])

~~~~~~~ plain username, unlinked (e.g. Headbomb)

This would be useful when creating preloaded forms that expect plain inputs for usernames.

I don't think this is needed, given the REVISIONUSER magic word:

{{subst:REVISIONUSER}} expands to the plain username, unlinked
[[User:{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}|]] expands to the plain username, linked
