My first edit as a registered editor was on October 11, 2006. Prior to that I was an unregistered editor.

What does "5Q5" mean? Nothing profound. The number 5 is a favorite and "Q" refers to the race of superbeings on Star Trek called the Q.

How to Archive a Talk Page (manually) by 5Q5[edit]

This page is linked from Help:Archiving a talk page.

Wiki templates, tags, policy/guideline links (stored here for 5Q5's personal use)[edit]

Boxes - articles

This first box will match the white background of the article's page. The color value can be changed, however, and the border can be set to zero. Both these boxes are indented in the article.

{{quotation|quoted text| Who said it| Source}}

The box below fits the width of the article. See an example in the article blood pressure.

{| style="border-spacing:8px;margin:0px 0px;" |width="100%" cellpadding="12" style="border: 1px solid #999; background-color: #EEE; vertical-align:top;padding:1em"| '''Put copied and pasted quoted text from article here.'''|}

Boxes - Talk pages

{{quotation|quoted text| Who said it| Source}}

Plain box (same as the article one):


Colored box (green, inset from margin, like above):


Colored box (green, wider):

<div class="boilerplate" style="background-color: #efe; margin: 2em 0 0 0; padding: 0 10px 0 10px; border: 1px dotted #aaa;">'''Put copied and pasted quoted text from article here.'''</div>


Another method, not recommended, is to just indent one space on the talk page. Include line breaks or it will run as one long line off the page to the right.

Indent one space to quote words, phrases, or short sentences.
               Text can also be moved inward.
