To sign a comment you need to leave four tildes after you've finished writing your message: ~~~~

This will result in you leaving a signature like this: Shalor (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:29, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

This serves as a signature that will let others know who posted and when. You should always sign every comment that you leave so that it's clear. Make sure that you don't add your signature to edits you make to live articles though - that's the only place you don't sign. (Although you should sign anything you write on the talk page.) The four tildes won't make a signature on a draft page in VisualEditor, unfortunately.

This information is also available in the training module "Editing Basics".
