Do edits = another proofread & where to sign entry[edit]

When editing changes are made to a page that require the second proofreading, does it have to be proofread a 3rd time?
Where do I sign an entry? I proofread a page and made corrections. After I explained in the summary box, I signed the 4 tildes there. Was that the spot? Thank you, Wordreader (talk) 03:01, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

No, a page only requires proofreading twice. This should fix most or all errors in the text, but even if it doesn't, a sigle page only needs the first proofreading (yellow status) and the validation (green status).
You don't need to manually sign an entry, the computer will automatically make a record of your edit for you. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 13:51, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
