Everyone who makes a userbox, please add it to the Index, if you can! And please add any I missed, too...-AmesGyo! 01:30, 12 April 2007 (EDT)

Great job Colin. The rest is in your capable hands. Sleep well!-AmesGyo! 01:46, 12 April 2007 (EDT)

Thanks for fixing the formatting, Philip! I couldn't figure out how to do that. Again, thanks! ColinRtalk 02:59, 12 April 2007 (EDT)

A word to the wise - if you want all your userboxes to line up nice & pretty, make sure that the pictures are 45px wide, and that the text is centered (using <center> tags).-AmesGyo! 11:28, 12 April 2007 (EDT)

How about copying over the Babel Templates from Wikipedia so we can have language userboxes as well? I wouldn't mind doing the work if necessary. AKjeldsen 08:39, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

i dont know how to make these. maybe some one can help? --Will N. 11:53, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

I have imported some of the necessary code for language userboxes - see Conservapedia:Babel and Template:Babel. All that is necessary now is to copy over the actual language templates, which will likely take a while. AKjeldsen 12:38, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

Is there any way somebody could make an OEC box like the YEC one that exists now? MountainDew 13:52, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

It's already there, MD. Myk 13:53, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

These could use a little more organizing - I like the categories, they help a lot, but there are quite a few duplications. A table would help the weird wrap effect that happens due to them being slightly different heights. I might attack the dupes, maybe the tabling sometime... Human 18:08, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

I could help with the table, I think... --Sid 3050 19:15, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
Done with the table. I settled for three columns, prevents things from becoming too wide or too lengthy. --Sid 3050 19:37, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
Nice work Sid! Now to 1. get rid of the redundant entries and 2. move some of the "uncategorized" UXBs into categories... I am wondering if the redundancies are some sort of glitch, because the one I made I surely only put in "politics". I am glad the the categories start off with Christianity, CP activism, and Creationism, as those are the foci of this wiki. What is scary is the number of "non-conforming use" boxes that pepper the other categories. Human 20:13, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
Sure thing :) Table stuff was the easy part, though. With the current number of boxes, removing duplicates and categorizing will be more of a challenge, I think. *frowns* --Sid 3050 20:17, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
I feel like a Bureaucrat-in-chief-wanna-be with that "nice work" thing. Somebody please slap me, now. Anyway, I think maybe later tonight, when all the good little elves are asleep (to avoid edit conflicts) I'll copy the source over into notepad, clean up the dupes and do a little categorizing, and copy it back. I'm so glad I found these, I totally live for userboxes. (How did I find them? Copied over my UXB list from WP to see what would happen...) Human 20:23, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
Slap! But that's for the barely-disguised profanity. There's nothing wrong with complimenting another user. Philip J. Rayment 21:47, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

Thanks I needed that :) And thank you for, making me feel ok about giving a compliment. Anyway, the reason for this comment is that the table format of this page got all screwed up, so I reverted it to the last version that worked. I hope I did not remove anyone's hard work. Please, if there is any confusion, use our talk pages to resolve the issue so this meta-article can work well. Human 00:27, 14 April 2007 (EDT)


Before anyone reverts, I would like to state that I find the columnar layout to be much less disorienting. I would like to change {{UB}} to produce two collumns, but I believe that obtaining feedback before I do so would be preferable to a change without the input of other users. --Hacker(Write some code) 08:20, 14 April 2007 (EDT)
