WikiProject Mixed Drinks

I created the following userboxes for active Participants in WikiProject Mixed Drinks to use to identify themselves to other Wikipedians. The last one is customizable so you can link directly to your favorite drink. The link above each userbox gives a little more information you might find helpful.

Sibling userboxes

I thought an automatic userbox for a user's number of siblings would be useful:

{{User:Graphite Elbow/UBX/sibs|1|0|2|1}}
sibs-4 This user has 1 older sister, 2 younger sisters, and 1 younger brother.
{{User:Graphite Elbow/UBX/sibs-sanity|1|2|1|0}}
sibs-4 This user has 1 older sister, 2 older brothers, and 1 younger sister. Nevertheless, this user is still sane.

The parameters define the number of older sisters, older brothers, younger sisters, and younger brothers, in that order. No support for twins. It adds correct commas (serial style), "and's", and totals the siblings in the ID box. The ID itself will define the category (e.g. Wikipedians with 3 siblings). The template page has more examples.

  • Hello, why was my image removed? I don't see why, it was an image of wikipedia, just like the others in here... Can you explain why it was removed? There're a bunch of them just like mine (for example: Feyenoord) and they haven't been removed :( I don't want to argue, but I just think this is unfair Crazy Murdoc 21:03, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
  • The image you had in the userbox (File:Logo sporting clube portugal.jpg) is copyrighted. It is appropriately tagged with what is known as a "fair use tag". There's quite a number of fair use tags. They can all be found at Category:Non-free image copyright tags. In this case, the {{logo}} tag was used. This means the image must be used under terms of fair use on Wikipedia. Our fair use policy is detailed at Wikipedia:Fair use criteria. In this particular case, the clause that applies is #9; fair use images may not be used on templates. If you have other questions, I'd be happy to answer. Thanks, --Durin 21:08, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
  • In that case
    This user supports
    Feyenoord Rotterdam
    is in the same situation and should be deleted. I'll just use "SCP" instead ;) Bye Crazy Murdoc 21:19, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Tools that can be used to create Nation and state user boxes

For those of you building user boxes to show where people have been, I have created templates that given 2-3 letter code, return the name or flag of a nation. Matching templates convert that code and a state or province code (like IL for Illinois) into either the state/province name or the flag of that state or province.

Currently, I support all nations that have at least one top-level domain code for the Internet and a free use (not fair use) flag image. All flag images are believed to be SVG. For states, you use the same code and the Postal code for states or provinces (at least in the nations I support so far).

The only nations where I can currently do state or province lookups are the US and Canada. I don't expect to add more nations due to the amount of work required. However, I can provide instructions on how to extend my support. Just ask on my user page. I will create the basic template in my user namespace. You fill it in. All state/province lookup templates begin with "User:Will Pittenger/templates/GetProvinceName " or "User:Will Pittenger/templates/GetProvinceFlag " followed by the nation code. The functions for Canada are {{user:Will Pittenger/templates/GetProvinceName ca}} and {{User:Will Pittenger/templates/GetProvinceFlag ca}}. (I have a central template (see below) that adds the nation code on the fly.) Note that the US has only one code ("USA") and it is not a domain name. If you pass no domain name, the US is used.

To Get a:
Name Flag
For a: Nation {{User:Will Pittenger/templates/GetCountryName}} {{user:Will Pittenger/templates/GetCountryFlag}}
Province or State {{User:Will Pittenger/templates/GetProvinceName}} {{user:Will Pittenger/templates/GetProvinceFlag}}

Please feel free to ask any question you have at my talk page. Feel free to use these templates as you need to. They are intended to support my "Where I have been" templates, {{User:Will Pittenger/templates/Nation Flag Entry}} and {{User:Will Pittenger/templates/Province Flag Entry}}, but I wanted them to be usable inside user boxes. They are a tool waiting for your use. Will (Talk - contribs) 05:42, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

New tools to list user boxes

I would now like to offer a trio of tool templates for listing user boxes. Together, they create a table with columns for Name (which shows how to call the box), Created By (defaults to read "Me"), and a sample of the box. The samples can normally be displayed with no code. All of the boxes I list at User:Will Pittenger/User Boxes are now displayed with just one line of code per box. I even was able to group boxes by type.

You use {{User:Will Pittenger/templates/User Box List Start}} to begin the table. It adds the header section. Then, for each row, call {{User:Will Pittenger/templates/User Box List Row}}. Then, to complete the table, call {{User:Will Pittenger/templates/User Box List End}}. Only the row template requires any parameters.

BTW: If you would like to list templates like I do at User:Will Pittenger/templates, feel free to check out and use {{User:Will Pittenger/templates/Template List Start}}, {{User:Will Pittenger/templates/Template List Row}}, and {{User:Will Pittenger/templates/Template List End}}. They require more parameters than the user box templates, but you will find they are more flexible. However, you still call them in the same order you do the user box templates.

Fair use rationale for File:Sporting Clube de Portugal.png

Nuvola apps important.svg

File:Sporting Clube de Portugal.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
