Userbox alignment[edit]

Hey, as a follow-up to your e-mail query: I don't remember much from my time spent on userboxes—I gave them up when I decided I spent more effort here at Wikipedia on vanity than on improving the encyclopedia. That being said, I used to include User:BigNate37/NathanBoxes at the top of my userpage as a template (e.g. {{User:BigNate37/NathanBoxes}}). That subpage takes advantage of Template:userboxtop, Template:userboxbreak and Template:userboxbottom. The two things I would suggest you do are (1) place {{userboxtop}} and {{userboxbottom}} around your userbox/es, and (2) move your userbox/es and {{babel}} template to the top of your page, since the text body will stay at the top of the page and wrap around the templates if you put the text afterwards. Feel free to look at my NathanBoxes template or any older version of my userpage (pre-November 2007) and borrow or ask about whatever you like. Just be careful not to indulge in userpage vanity as heavily as I did. BigNate37(T) 05:55, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks BigNate. That sorted it out. I'll resist the urge to over-indulge in the user boxes and focus on articles. Cheers MitchMcM (talk) 06:04, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

A beer for you![edit]

Cheers for the beer! Its nice to get some appreciation, the next round's on me. But I don't want to have too many- have you heard what that stuff does to your brain chemsitry? ;)

I had a look at your profile, you are a very prolific editor. 1,000 edits in your first 3 months!! WOW!

If you've got time would you mind having a look at one of the pages I've started making changes to? Theres no great rush, whenever you have time. If you don't have time thats fine.

The page is neuropsychological test. I'm trying to figure out new sections that it requires. So far I think it needs a "history" and "criticisms" sections. Do you agree and is there anything eles you think it needs?

???[edit]

HI! Quite some time ago you said I could throw my questions your way as I am a new user. I hope that your offer remains. Here goes...I just completed a major edit to "Addictive Behavior." At the very bottom of the page it tells me that I have ref tags that are incorrect. I have looked and revisited the article numerous times and I don't see it. That is if I am understanding what the mistake is. Do you think u could take a look and advise? Thanks much. U can answer me on my talk page or here. either is fineAddictionPsychologistFrank (talk) 18:31, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Another question....how does one get rid of boxes appearing at the top of an article for example about an article having "multiple issues", etc. I did not place these here. AddictionPsychologistFrank (talk) 18:33, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Your feedback is great. thanks. It sounds like I should leave the editors notes appearing at the top of the page. With time they will review again? Am I correct? — Preceding unsigned comment added by AddictionPsychologistFrank (talkcontribs) 13:32, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi, glad that I could be of help. I noticed that the references on addictive behavior are looking alot better. Unfortunately, they don't seem to review and remove the author notes after placing them on a page. My advice would be to thoroughly rectify the problem, remove the box and then on the talk page say that you removed the boxes and why. That will generally keep you out of trouble. If it is a page with alot of watchers, the boxes should only be removed by consensus through dicussion. To see the number of watchers click "View history" then "Number of watchers", most pages have less than 30 watchers. But more generic terms will have more eg. addiction-166 watchers and drug-159 watchers. With these sorts of pages, you need consensus before making large changes and removal of boxes. If you have any other questions as you go along don't hesistate to ask.

Parkinson's science learning project in Wikiversity[edit]

Hi. I'd like to bring your attention to a new learning project in Wikiversity. I noted that you had sent a message to Garrondo for whom I left a similar message to this because he had been involved with the discussion on the wikipedia Parkinson's disease page. So I Thought you too might be interested in looking at the project and perhaps even contributing material to it. Please see my Talk page, http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/User_talk:Droflet#The_Science_Behind_Parkinson.27s_learning_project , the subpage, http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/User_talk:Droflet/ProjectDescription or the project itself , http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Portal:The_Science_Behind_Parkinson%27s . It would be great if you could bring the project to the attention of others who might be interested in helping us develop it. Thanks.
