Userboxes in a grid on your User Page?[edit]

Thanks for your help with the map image.

Your user boxes display very well.

Where can I find out about the USER : UBX tag that you have used?

GeoFan49 00:14, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

That's just something I did for myself, to keep myself a little better organized. All I did was create a separate user page and named it User:Tomtheman5/UBX. This essentially creates a subdirectory under my user page. Then I put all my userboxes there (using code). Follow the link, and you'll see what I mean.
Then, to include the entire contents of my "UBX" sub-page into my main user page, I just used the code [[:User:Tomtheman5/UBX]]. (Remember to use that first colon)
I did this also with my "to do" list, my sandboxes, and my milestones page. This way, the code for my main user page is nice and clean, and all the edits are made in the sub-pages.
If you choose to do this, and you need help with it, please, just let me know! tiZom(2¢) 02:22, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Schenectady Massacre[edit]

I was doing some recent changes patrolling for new articles. I say you made an article Schenectady Massacre which had no information on it. I labeled it as a speedy delete because it had no context. Many users patrol recent changes. To avoid confusion in the future, please write the stub before you label a blank article as one and then write information on it. You can also write the article in a user subdirectory. Type in on the left toolbar User:GeoFan49/Desired Page Name and then click go. You can edit your whole article and come back to it. Then when you're done you can either copy and paste everything into the article or click move on the top of your finished page. Thank you.++aviper2k7++ 05:44, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

Dotted lines?[edit]

Why does Ceuta  Ceuta have dotted lines, sometimes, when this user page is displayed?



Why does Ceuta not have dotted lines on the latter, but it does on the former?

Come and join the random picture of the day![edit]
