What is a User Template?

  • A user template is a small Infobox that a user can embed in their userpages. People like Darth_Doctrinus have also got into the habit of referring to them as tags.
  • Some are for informing other users of edit counts, while others are for Bloggers, VU devotees or people addicted to Chat.
  • Some user templates have a vaguely serious nature: they are primarily to act as a visual cue that a user is also a Sysop, for example.
  • There is no limit as to what a user template can be used for - your designs are only limited by your imagination.

What is this page for?

  • This page allows users to identify which templates are in curent use, and to depict them graphically, saving users the hassle of having to run through all of them one-by-one. The collection is continually evolving.

How do I order one?

  • Please keep checking back for additions. You might even like to try designing your own. It's not too difficult, but as with most things, there's a knack. If it all goes Pete Tong then you can always ask for a specific design at my talk page.

How do I use them?

  • There is no requirement to cut and paste loads of code - each template has all its code hidden within it. All you do is identify the unique code for each template, and then place it wherever you want in your own page. Template codes look like this:


This code is for the Bureaucrat template you can see immediately below this section. Each template image has its unique code directly beneath it - simply copy and paste this into your page.

  • A Sysop is an ARRSEr granted special mystic powers to help police the Wiki. There is also a slightly less aggressive template available - you should use the {{Sysop2}} code.

  • The ARRSEr tag is purely for asthetic reasons, and to allow blatant demonstrations of site loyalty.

Edit Counting

  • There is a school of thought that would suggest that we are no greater than the sum of our posts; or in this case edits.
  • This series of tags exist to 'reward' frenetic editing activity, which is after all, the life-blood of any Wiki.
  • All of the templates in this section are available once a certain number of edits have been logged.
