Well, since you brought it up, I have accepted Jesus Christ, I believe in the US constitution, I believe in the 2nd Amendment, I am pro-military, I am Patriotic toward America, and I want all of the tags on my user page that show this. Shobson20 (talk) 16:54, 26 December 2017 (EST)
Okay, that shouldn't be too difficult. If you want to learn about userboxes and browse the existing options, you will want to look here: Conservapedia:Userboxes. Or, if you prefer, you can just use the applicable code I have on my profile page.
First, you need a container, so put {{userboxtop|About Me}} on the top, and {{Userboxbottom}} on the bottom (other page content goes after this). The "About Me" message on the opening tag can be changed to whatever you prefer. Then, just load in the userboxes you want. I am using {{User Christian2}} to say I am a Christian, and {{User American}} to display my patriotism. I don't have a box specifically for the Constitution, expect for the limited government one: {{User limited govt}}. You can use that, or use this more straightforward one: {{User Constitution}}. Regarding the second amendment, I assume you are specificly talking about the right to have and bear arms. For that, you would probably want to use {{User progun}}. For the military, you probably want {{User patriot}}.
I think that covers everything, but if I missed anything, let me know. Also, feel free to look around for others you might like by clicking through the categories.
If all of my assumptions were correct, then you will want to put the following on your profile page:
{{userboxtop|About Me}}
{{User Christian2}}
{{User American}}
{{User Constitution}}
{{User progun}}
{{User patriot}}
Let me know if there's anything else I can do! --David B (TALK) 22:47, 27 December 2017 (EST)

CP admins, What was with that page locking?

What was the deal with locking everyone out except admins? Even user talk pages. Even the essay that *I* created was locked from editing. Shobson20 (talk) 09:42, 17 March 2018 (EDT)

Your essay has not been locked from editing, and with the exception of a very small number of pages, we allow anyone with registered accounts to edit, not just admins. I'm not sure why you're having a problem with editing. --1990'sguy (talk) 11:15, 17 March 2018 (EDT)
Were you editing at night? That's the most likely explanation. CP shuts down editing by people without admin or "edit" rights for much of the (Eastern time) night, because fewer people are on guard against rampant vandalism. During the day, someone, even if it's only me, is watching the Recent Changes page frequently, so vandalism sprees get caught fairly soon.
You either need to be patient when CP is in night mode, or request "edit" privileges from Andy. (It's sort of misnamed; everyone can edit; it should be called "night edit".) Andy has occasionally given out night privileges when asked. Particularly for people who live in other parts of the world and are inconvenienced by the daytime-only policy. SamHB (talk) 11:52, 17 March 2018 (EDT)
This is definitely a BIG problem for anyone who lives in Australia for example, who's time when they could be awake and off work to edit is when it's the middle of the night in Eastern Time. For example, 5:00 PM in Australia is 2:00 AM Eastern. In other words, their time outside the standard work hours is night time on the East Coast of the US. They would have to be on CP at odd hours to even request Night Edit Privileges, since even the communication pages are locked. The best solution to this problem would be to recruit admins from other time zones who could watch the website. Judging by how the logo for this website is an American flag, I assume it's US-centric, but everyone around the world needs to see these ideas, and, while fewer, there are definite conservatives in other countries.

That is quite inconvenient, and you are not the only one who has found this to be a significant problem. You can defiantly explain your situation to Andy and ask if you can get the ability to edit at "night." Hopefully we will be able to get some oversees admins who are regularly available to help with the root problem. --David B (TALK) 12:53, 17 March 2018 (EDT)
