I seem to remember seeing a meta or just other people commenting that there's no need to "sign" a question, such as if I, as a new user, had asked a new question saying:
Something something something?
Thanks in advance!
The NathanS is redundant (and so is the "greeting" too) because we can already see it's from me next to the tags below the question.
But what about "Thanks" or "Thanks in advance" or similar?
Recently I edited this question, removing the "Thanks" on the end, but then I put it back after a minute or so (hence it's not in the edit history*) since it might be seen as robbing the user of their politeness or something (and after a recent incident with a new user over editing, I'd rather not annoy anyone through unnecessarily editing or editing that could be seen as antagonistic).
Do we have a policy already for such a thing? If not, what do we think of "Thanks" at the end of a question as a community? (And is there already a policy or meta question or something that describes the "signing" thing I mentioned at the top of this post?)
*Note that the "Thanks" has now been removed by Sdjz, which confirms I'm not the only one under the impression that we don't need "Thanks" at the end of questions, but I'm still curious as to what our policy or collective opinion is about this.
