Check for ~~~~ when submitting on Talk pages



In the Portuguese WP Telegram group, an editor commented that he has difficult remembering to sign his posts.

I confess I’m always afraid of forgetting it too.

So I got an idea that would be very easy to implement: when triggering the submit button, a Javascript code would check the if there was any ~~~~ in the textarea and would alert the user asking if he would really want to proceed without a signature.

English wikipedia has SineBot sign for people automatically.

I would like to implement it for you, perhaps. What editor are you using?
