## Message to All Still Here

• Phew, that was a lot of userboxes! If anyone read them all and has a useful opinion that/which they would like to share other than, "Ahh! Too many userboxes!", could they please post them above or on my talk page? Thanks for that. This can be like my userbox talk page! And you may post comments that tell me which userboxes to delete. Also, there are a few userboxes that will not work. Could someone get me the correct source code, and tell me if it is actually a source code, or something else entirely? By the way, don't expect to see too many emoticons. I only had two, after all. Strangely enough, to show disappointment I kind of like to use the upside-down exclamation mark, "¡", though not lowered below the text.
