A watchfull observer could have noticed it's not a real "edit line" because the green thingy is not a link, you can't click it, it's just [color=..]. If I'ld used the clickable [nation=..]-tag, that's also green, you could've seen it's underlined (unlike the "edit line").

I've the signature for a couple of weeks already I guess, and this is the first one who noticed (or at least the first one who's reacting), though I have to admit I'm not that a big poster. But to avoid any more tech-threads about it being created, I'm willing to adapt it.

It's easy to notice it's not real-- the edit line has a dashed hr, the sig line has a solid hr.
If you see I've made a mistake in my wording or a factual detail, telegram me and I'll fix it. I'll even give you credit for pointing it out, if you'd like.
