How to add new sections[edit]

Please do not paste the code of your userbox here. Instead, transclude it. One convenient way is to insert

{{usbktop}}
{{usbk|XXX}}
{{usbkbottom}}
—~~~~

where XXX is the full page name of your userbox. If you are pasting more than one userbox, simply add a {{usbk}} line for each of them. For example,

{{usbktop}}
{{usbk|Template:User en}}
{{usbk|User:Arthur B/Advaita}}
{{usbk|Wikipedia:WikiProject Canada Roads/Userbox}}
...
{{usbkbottom}}
—~~~~

There are already republican userboxes in the section Wikipedia:Userboxes/Location/European_Union/United_Kingdom#Politics but there is no single type of British republican and I wanted to include boxes that better represent users like myself. The first design is for general republicans. I wanted to use neutral colours and symbols as republicans disagree on which flag to use, what to call a British republic and what type of republic it should be but I would be open to suggestions on how to brighten it up. The second design is for supporters of the pressure group Republic (political organisation). Third design refers to one of Republic's slogans (Citizen not subject).

My contribution for today is based on a common error and is for the section Wikipedia:Userboxes/Location/European Union/United Kingdom. I remember Wikipedia making this mistake on the main in the on this day feature on 17 April 2012 describing the Peak District as being the first National Park in the British Isles instead of the United Kingdom. I already knew that Killarney was the first National Park in these islands and I pointed it out on the talk page as I was unable to edit the main page myself. Since then the main correctly used the term United Kingdom. Tk420 (talk) 22:08, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

My first design for today is for the category Wikipedia:Userboxes/Grammar#Commas. There already a userbox for users who only prefer to use the serial comma where its omission can be confusing but I would prefer to use it in the context in my design. The next three designs are for the category Wikipedia:Userboxes/Non-ISO_Languages/Dialects#en-us_.28American_English.29 and is for Wikipedians who do not understand US English but want a userbox without the profanity in the original.

Some userboxes that I have made, for myself and as per request. If someone is going to catogorize them before I do, here is where I think that they should go:

Suggestion: replace the "info" parameter in the Shakespeare one with This user believes that [[William Shakespeare|<span style="color:silver">William Shakespeare</span>]] is the greatest writer of all time. That way the link still stands out (as opposed to turning the link white) but it won't have contrast problems (blue on black). Eman235/talk 23:41, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
