MarioWiki talk:Userboxes

From the Super Mario Wiki

Excessive Length[edit]

Now reaching 31 KB in size, MarioWiki:Userboxes has been suggested by the software to break up into smaller sections, similar to Wikipedia's format. How should be break up this page? Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 17:10, 9 August 2006 (EDT)

Perplexing query... I guess first you should reseperate usercreated.HK
No wait! Use subpages, and make the main page a hub.HK
Let's not worry about the length for now. But for one we should get rid of the User Created section and just separate them into proper categories. Most of these will be made by users so having a user created section makes no sense. --Steve (talk) 18:28, 9 August 2006 (EDT)
That's what I origanolly said.HK
Whatever you say for now, Steve. Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 19:56, 9 August 2006 (EDT)


I'm going to attempt to make a concise article on how to create userboxes, including examples, over the next few days. Please do not remove that red link, as it will become blue (or green in some cases ;)) in a couple of days. Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 23:41, 6 August 2006 (EDT)

Are you (Porplemontage) going to add templates later, or is it up to the rest of us? Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 16:51, 4 August 2006 (EDT)

I tried making one. It didn't really work too well.HK

I'm not going to make any right now. Users who know about userboxes can add their own templates. Things like favorite characters, favorite games, consoles owned, Nintendo Power subscriber, etc. Woo. --Steve (talk) 17:21, 4 August 2006 (EDT)

Lots of excitement in that statement.HK

Wikipedia:Userboxes/Games#Computer and video games shows all templates Wikpedia has. I'll copy some and modify them for use later, or someone else can go ahead and start. Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 17:56, 4 August 2006 (EDT)

We're not going to use templates and categories. Hold on and I'll show how we'll do it. --Steve (talk) 23:38, 4 August 2006 (EDT)

As long as we can move the page contents so my work is not all for naught, I'd love to see the new system. :D Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 23:43, 4 August 2006 (EDT)

In Need of Explanation![edit]

Even though I figured out the CSS, I have no clue how you just did that. Care to explain? :P Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 00:01, 5 August 2006 (EDT)

Wait, I think I get it from seeing Template:Userbox. The stuff between {{{ and }}} is replaced by the lines separated by |s in the template...very useful feature, better than the categories/templates that have just been deleted (00:06, 5 August 2006 (EDT)). Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 00:04, 5 August 2006 (EDT)
Yeah, it's all about changing the variables. --Steve (talk) 00:12, 5 August 2006 (EDT)
Is it possible to add pictures using this? Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 00:29, 5 August 2006 (EDT)
...Answered my own question again. Create another template with an image line! Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 00:31, 5 August 2006 (EDT)
...Ah, excellent. {{{Code}}} can take images...good thing I figured that out before I created the page.

Awesome. Except the {{userboxsample}} template is for displaying the userbox on this page, but the source code is supposed to use the {{userbox}} template, which is used in the actual towers. --Steve (talk) 07:59, 5 August 2006 (EDT)

I checked the penultimate diffs, you'll see plenty more today. :) Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 11:13, 5 August 2006 (EDT)
Why did you remove the sample template? I'm going to fix the page to show how I want it done so please follow my standards. --Steve (talk) 13:34, 5 August 2006 (EDT)


Why not templating the userboxes? Now you need to copy all that codes and stuff and your userpage looks like crap when you edit... so, why not templating? (Maybe this is another dumb idea i got, but...) /It's-a me, Smeedel. / Talk - Contribs - You 12:42, 5 August 2006 (EDT)

No templating. And I don't want users creating their own userbox templates. Just drop the code on your page please. --Steve (talk) 13:33, 5 August 2006 (EDT)

I thought that was the deal with userboxes :/ --It's-a me, Smeedel. / Talk - Contribs - You 19:16, 26 August 2006 (EDT)

User Created[edit]

Ultimately, most of the userboxes will be created by wiki users. We should have a huge list of them in time. So why not just categorize them with the others instead of throwing them all in one section? --Steve (talk) 23:53, 6 August 2006 (EDT)

Corrupted Format[edit]

Is there any way to fix the coding of this page? Can you shrink the text of the sample user boxes?
I am Confused 00:37, 6 May 2007 (EDT)

Lets talk about it[edit]

Alright, this morning I chatted with Wayoshi and MM they said it was too specific and it wasn't needed. The page itself is too long, so I'm trying to shorten it. Great Gonzo

Well, you removed many other userboxes also. Plumber

Ones that most likely really shouldn't be there you know. Great Gonzo

You removed the F-Zero, Animal Crossing, and Halo ones. Plumber

Too specific, we have This user is a fan of the video game series ___ so we really don't need the others. Great Gonzo

I don't think that's too specific. Plumber

Fine, some may not be but the "This user likes Luigi and Link" maybe too specific. Im sorry if i was a little agressive. Great Gonzo

That's OK. Plumber

keep 5-6

I removed this user box cause all says is "This user has major anger issues!" I believe no one really cares about this userbox. So maybe we'll take a poll.

We didn't remove it so it should stay. YS Grape.gifGrapes YS Grape.gif

  • I've fixed it to be less offensive. Now can it stay? ~DarkZero DarkZero Sig.gif 00:34, 5 November 2009 (EST)


Since the proposal has pasted, us users must get ride of the ones that seem pointless right. (Because no one did any thing when the proposal past.) So which ones should we get rid of. YS Grape.gifGrapes YS Grape.gif

Well, start with 'this user is friends with __'. I'll tackle some of the favorite character ones. — Stooben Rooben 18:56, 21 October 2008 (EDT)
I removing the ones that are piont less like This User think Luigi should be called Mama Luigi and This User thinks that a Pirate goomba is really a Pirate goomba. Princess Grapes Butterfly
Awesome; users can make those on his/her own. — Stooben Rooben 19:06, 21 October 2008 (EDT)

New idea[edit]

This is my new idea of a new userbox. I recently got this book that says if you practice Confucianism, then you will be invincible. If Bowser wants to take over the Mushroom Kingdom, then maybe he should adopt Confucianism.

Um... you know you can add all those userboxes yourself. Fawfulfury65

I added them. I will help the mariowiki a lot (talk)

Can I?[edit]

Can I put in this userbox?:

MP8 DryBones.pngHappy Halloween! 25px

Oh whatever. Since no one is replying to me, I'll just run a poll.

Sorry, the admins decided not to include all the userboxes we used to have. But you can still include these userboxes on your page :) Marioguy1 (talk)


What happened to all the other userboxes? Last time there was so many more Userboxes then this.--UM3000 E-102 Gamma.png

Anyone know what happened?--UM3000 E-102 Gamma.png

Man, patience. They were removed from the page after an admin discussion. --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 16:01, 13 January 2011 (EST)

Ok I was just curious Tucky.--UM3000 E-102 Gamma.png

However I feel the need to point out that you're still allowed to have those userboxes; this page is just being cleaned up. Marioguy1 (talk)


That was a really stupid idea to take out all the userboxes. What was wrong with them. Skelebowwii.pngI serve Dry Bowser! Dry Bowser OWNS! File-DeviantBones.png

There's nothing wrong with them; they were removed to save space because there was an overabundance of them...

¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 20:03, 28 March 2011 (EDT)

Why can't we make subpages or something? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 18:25, 8 April 2011 (EDT)

The admins agreed that they were a waste of space that did little with the Wiki and only encouraged users to edit their userspace more. The userboxes are now only Wiki-related (except for the basic ones at the bottom). Fawfulfury65

Oh, okay. But at least we can still create our own (which we know that our creations will always be better than these). Sorry, but that is what everybody thinks of his or her own creations most of the time. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 03:08, 22 April 2011 (EDT)
Yes, you still can create your own userboxes.

¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 04:17, 22 April 2011 (EDT)


HEY! What happened to all the past userbox images!?! We can keep the old userboxes but without the (previous) userbox images, the (previous) userbox images are not as fun as they used to be! Moses suposesVideoBoo His toeses are roses Eeheeheehee...

They wanted to keep only the example boxes as a starting point. I think they said that the previous way encouraged excessive mainpage edits and excessive length to the article. I loved the ones that were there, and thus look in the history to view them. It is great that the history is there and not too confusing.
GG445 Me!Wiiheehee! "It's bright in here."

woaaaahh. i guess it's called looking at the previous comment answering that question.
GG445 Me!Wiiheehee! "It's bright in here."

The userbox images were all deleted because none of them linked to MarioWiki:Userbox, which is a requirement for them. Everyone was given about a week to mark any that they wanted as PIs. Fawfulfury65

PipeProject Crap[edit]

May an administrator delete the PipeProject userboxes? PipeProjects do not exist anymore. Thank you. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 21:38, 16 April 2012 (EDT)

They still exist they just aren't being used so your still a member of them in a sense Raven Effect (talk)

Green tick[edit]

I think the Autopatrolled userbox be changed from this...



In regards to the general appearance and quality of the image. Does anyone agree?

It does look somewhat better. MKDS ROB Artwork.png Master R.O.B.

Making/Ripping Sprites[edit] ---> "This user is a n00b on ripping sprites. " The template actually show "making" sprites and not "ripping" sprites. We should correct this. Banon (talk) 13:44, 5 November 2012 (EST)

I'll ask an admin to correct it.

Missing Userbox.[edit]

Missing the Autoconfirmed Userbox and for the userbox. I think that an Image of Princess Peach is appropriate for the Autoconfirmed usebox. TabuuandPeach is back! (talk) 16:14, 25 April 2016 (EDT)

I don't think that's necessary. Auto-confirmed status isn't really that important to know. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 16:19, 25 April 2016 (EDT)

Ideas for userboxes.[edit]

I think that there should be a userbox based on their country using the flag of that country. Discard items.jpg TabuuandPeach K.K. Dixie.png 20:22, 13 May 2016 (EDT)

You do know you can make a user box have and say anything you want, provided it is within wiki guidelines. I'm sure there are flags you can use as the box picture, but if not, you can always upload one as a personal image. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:07, 16 May 2016 (EDT)

Well, that takes me back to square 1 with the Personal Image problem, I reached my max, so a flag that can be shared by multiple users is a better idea. Discard items.jpg TabuuandPeach K.K. Dixie.png 00:17, 16 May 2016 (EDT)
