This might be a dumb question but...[edit]

Not a dumb question; it took me quite a while to figure them out. These are userboxes, a kind of template. Once you've found one you like, add it to your userpage by enclosing the page's name in a pair of braces on each end. For example, the TV-set userbox is User:Scepia/TV-0, so to add it to your userpage, you type {{User:Scepia/TV-0}} to get it to display. We have tons of userboxes on tons of subjects; you can find a directory of them at WP:UBXG. Most important are the language boxes, since they display how we can/should communicate with you. My two language userboxes are called {{User ang-1}} and {{User en}}; if you understand anything beyond modern English, it will help if you mention this, so others using those languages can communicate with you. You're also free to use the user-interest userboxes, e.g. User:Scepia/TV-0, but since those aren't quite as closely related to Wikipedia, they're not quite as important. If you have additional questions, feel free to come back and ask me again. Nyttend (talk) 03:47, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

October 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. I have noticed that some of your recent genre changes, such as the one you made to Linkin Park, have conflicted with our neutral point of view and verifiability policies. While we invite all users to contribute constructively to Wikipedia, we urge all editors to provide reliable sources for edits made. When others disagree, we recommend you seek consensus for certain edits by discussing the matter on the article's talk page. Thank you. Mlpearc (open channel) 01:48, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Information icon Please refrain from changing genres, as you did to Dude Ranch (album), without providing a source or establishing a consensus on the article's talk page first. Genre changes to suit your own point of view are considered disruptive. Thank you. Dan56 (talk) 19:23, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
