User infobox


  • This template box contains information about you as a user, not about one of your characters.
  • Unlike mainspace pages, the usage of this template is entirely optional since its your userpage. It does however, look somewhat like a mainspace infobox.

This is just a fictional example how this template could be used on your userpage:

{{User infobox
| image = Example.jpg
| center = y
| playing = pvw
| location = Russia
| world = Sanctum of Rall
| birthday = 1989/06/03
| played_months = 17
| played = 1100
| favskill = Meteor Shower
| favskill_prof = e
| userboxes = y
| gallery1 = Aloha quaggan.jpg
| gallery1-text = An extra image can go here!

This would result in the following userbox:

User infobox

1100 hours in 17 month(s)

That's all there is to say. If you have questions about this template feel free to ask. You may also add content to the template if you feel some content is missing. But please let all content be optional since you don't know which user wants to tell what about him/herself.
