Travel[edit]

Could someone create some Userboxes like

Flag of Italy.svg This user has visited Italy.

, but for Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Liechtenstein?

Also one like

Mp50 States flag.png
This user has visited 13 of the 50 States and the District of Columbia.

for the 16 German Bundesländer? (Thejeweledweevil (talk) 17:53, 26 May 2013 (UTC))

Martial Arts[edit]

Could someone create a user box for martial arts practitioners, specifically, Krav Maga? Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Xenophonscitroen (talkcontribs) 23:50, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

How do these grab you?

Feel free to change the color parameter if you dislike it. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 06:54, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

I'd like to second this idea, please. I'd love for someone to make up a userbox for Kajukenbo practitioners including their logo. I'll settle for a generic martial arts userbox, however. Please. Dachknanddarice (talk) 23:22, 31 March 2011 (UTC)


Update: I hope you don't mind, Trekphiler, but I stole your userbox template you posted here to create my own Kajukenbo user box.... I have yet to change the color on it (I will color it based on the belt rank I am currently at) but here's what it looks like so far. I want to thank you for providing the template.

Kajukenbo-crest.svg This user trains in Kajukenbo.


Dachknanddarice (talk) 23:31, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

If I minded, it wouldn't be here. :D I like yours. I also like the "color by belt" idea. :D TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 20:44, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Progressive Grammar[edit]

You should create a user box that says 'this user supports using progressive grammar' & 'this user believes wikipedia should allow progressive grammar'. For anybody that doesnt know, progressive grammar means using '&' instead of 'and', '3' instead of 'three', '1st' instead of 'first', '%' instead of 'percent', & so on. As for the opposite you should also create 'this user supports using traditional grammar'. Traditional grammar is what wikipedia currently uses. All numbers have to be written out & ampersands are forbidden. SlashinatorX (talk) 23:07, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Ampersands are not forbidden provided they're used appropriately. See MOS for more info. Zepppep (talk) 05:46, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

It's too big, the black on blue is difficult to read and there's no wikilink to NFSW (which should probably be in capitals anyway). -- Skysmurf  (Talk) 08:01, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Frightened Rabbit[edit]

I would like to suggest the creation of a userbox for the artist Frightened Rabbit. However, I currently have no idea how to create one myself. I will try to learn and see if I can bring in some design ideas. Other design ideas are welcome, because I really have no clue if I will be able to learn how to make one. :) Akihironihongo (talk) 08:42, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

FR This user loves Frightened Rabbit.




That's my idea. I don't really know what color to use for the id-c section, because i don't really know if there is a specific color that describes the band, so I just chose blue. Akihironihongo (talk) 09:01, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Userbox for Ford Explorer?[edit]

Could someone make a userbox that says "this user drives a Ford Explorer" with a pic of a 95-01 Explorer? Thanks. FPGT24 (talk) 13:28, 6 January 2012 (UTC)FPGT24

Here's a first attempt. For finetuning requests, feel free to ask either here or on my talk page.
Note to add: I didn't notice that the user who made the request has been blocked until after I had made the userbox and wanted to add a {{Talkback}} to his/her talk page. Since the request itself seems perfectly legitimate, I'm posting it anyway. -- Skysmurf  (Talk) 06:26, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

You're a userbox, Charlie Brown[edit]

Can someone please help me create some Peanuts userboxes, I couldn't find any in existence. I would especially like one along the lines of "This user spends Halloween night waiting for The Great Pumpkin. Thanks a lot.--Welshsocialist (talk) 12:19, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

I suppose you already have some texts in mind, so I suggest you first try to find some images that you like (they need to look good in small sizes) and that are eligible for use in userboxes (they may not be copyrighted). Once you have images (or abbreviations if no images could be found) and ideas, the actual creation of a userbox isn't that hard and I'd be happy to show you. -- Skysmurf  (Talk) 17:20, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
I found some here, but there may be rules about non-free images used in user boxes Category:Peanuts (comic strip) images--Canoe1967 (talk) 17:40, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes, and that's the problem: fair use images are only allowed to use in articles (and thus not in userspace!). Regards, mabdul 19:06, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I emailed the copyright holders of Peanuts about the limited use of one of their images in a user box.

Ah! My Goddess[edit]

I want to make a userbox for Urd from Oh My Goddess (or Ah! My Goddess) that says something like "This user is half-demon half-goddess" (Maybe with a comment about Enka music?)

Personality psychology userbox[edit]

For anyone who is interested in this subject, below is an idea for a userbox. The acronym OCEAN will be familiar to those with an interest in big five personality traits. I also considered using the Greek letter pi as a symbol of personality, but didn't like the look of it much, although it could catch on. Feel free to change the colour scheme to suit your own taste.

Shas[edit]

שס This user supports Shas.

I discovered that this wasn't listed at User:Ipatrol/Userboxes/Politics by country: A–K#Israeli Political Parties, so I made it based off of the other ones on that page for my user page. However, I still need help making the colors better (it should be a little lighter) so I can post it for other people to use. Bzweebl (talkcontribs) 20:03, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

University of New England (Australia) userboxes[edit]

The current UNE userboxes say "student or graduate" so I've created userboxes that specifies which one.

UNE This user is a graduate of the University of New England
UNE This user is a student of the University of New England

University of Sydney alumni[edit]

The current alumni userbox says "this user is an alumnus/a", which looks a bit awkward in my opinion, so I created some that allow one to specify. Plus I used the image of the main quadrangle, which I think looks nice, but feel free to fiddle.

Could someone create or teach me how to create a couple of user boxes?

Ideas

  • "This user exhibits behaviour". With the greek letter psi as the picture (similar to the current template that says "this user is interested in psychology".) pinky/Purpley/blue box
  • "This user uses a language". With the greek letter lambda as the picture (similar to the current template that says "this user is interested in linguistics" Orangey brown box.
  • "This user exhibits brain activity". With a picture of a brain. Purple box
  • "This user lives within a society". With a silhouette city picture. Red box.

Shakespeare[edit]

Hi UBX people. Would someone please create or point me toward ubxs that display one's favorite Shakespeare play? I can't seem to find anything of the sort. There are currently about six hundred "Hunger Games" ubxs... and like 4 Shakespeare ones. I mean... please. Geez. Thanx. Your friend, IceCreamAntisocial (talk) 02:22, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Looks like there's a few at Wikipedia:Userboxes/Media/Theatre. I can make one in the same style as the pre-existing ones if you want. I'd add a parameter to it so anyone could type in their favorite play and it would display & link to it's article as well. smile  dain- talk   22:50, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Silly Request...[edit]

Ok So I was thinking, why not have a big userbox which is huge and it links to the user's page of user boxes. It could say, this user has a page full of userboxes or something like that... If its silly, please don't bother... But if ain't I'm a genius right?? The Wikimon (talk) 08:30, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Some people actually do that - most of the time they make a little NavBar for their Userpage, and one of the links is to a page for userboxes. Then the other pages would be awards they've gotten, pages they like to watch, etc. This looks really cool in my opinion, but not everyone needs to do that. Making a userbox for it is a neat idea instead, I might try later on... can think of how it would work. Did you have a picture/text in mind for it? If you do have a picture you'd like used, please make sure it is usable in Userboxes (Public Domain, free use, etc.). k2trf (talk) 16:58, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Some userboxes I've created.[edit]

Hello fellow WP:U members! I've been creating a wide variety of userboxes (you can check them out here) and am thinking that some of them would make good replacements for some of the default Template:UBX ... or Template:User ... userboxes currently in existence. I have meta OS and Browser userboxes that I think would make great replacements for a number of userboxes for example. User:Technical 13/Userboxes/Browser supports Firefox, IE, Safari, Opera, and Google chrome and could probably replace most of the "single user" userboxes for all of those. User:Technical 13/Userboxes/OS supports many versions of Windows and Linux as well as DOS and finally MacOS (poorly as I need to find some free images). I also have a couple dynamic userboxes like my "Help me responder" series of three boxes (which I'm thinking of combining into one) and my User:Technical 13/Userboxes/WikiProjects template which needs some expansion and I have an additional feature I intend to add. Take a look over what I have so far and let me know what you think! I look forward to it! Technical 13 (talk) 23:36, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

I absolutely love your Linux Distro ones! Much nicer color scheme than the current defacto ones; I can actually read yours! Very nicely done userboxes! :) k2trf (talk) 15:11, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

I blieve Lorrie was referring to 'Cozy Mysteries', which is apparently a book series (1|2); this doesn't help greatly however, as there's still Cozy Mysteries no page on this topic. However, I have created a sort of generic one, that may be suitable for this.

Userboxes for the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps would be nice. Being that all US military including youth programs such as JROTC (Army) and Civil Air Patrol (Air Force) have already been made, I believe it's time the NSCC have theirs.

Some examples of boxes would be 'this user is a member of the NSCC', 'this user is an officer in the NSCC', the various ranks of cadets, instructors, midshipmen, and officers could be included. Topbookclub

Not a problem. I've added parameters as follows. verb can be set to "likes", "has", "owns", etc. (default value: likes). singular, when set to anything, produces "a Border Collie" instead of "Border Collies". Examples:
  • {{User:Skysmurf/Userboxes/BorderCollie}} still produces "This user likes Border Collies."
  • {{User:Skysmurf/Userboxes/BorderCollie|verb=paints}} produces "This user paints Border Collies."
  • {{User:Skysmurf/Userboxes/BorderCollie|verb=has|singular=yes}} produces "This user has a Border Collie."
