One other suggestion: if you're going to make comments on talk pages or make other sorts of comments, please be sure to sign them with four tildes (~~~~) to paste in your user name and the date/time of the comment.
Template:User and other peoples' user pagesEdit
Your new template, while nice and all, doesn't exactly fit into the way things actually work around here with user pages. Generally, unless they actually show up high on the wanted list (ie, more than 6-7 links to it), we leave it uncreated unless the user wishes to create it themselves.
Tied in with that, by going around and plastering it on various user pages that don't actually have any links to them, people might get a wee bit peeved at that action and not take it too well, especially when those are your only contributions to date... -- Sulfur 00:21, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
- Alright thats fine. Delete it then, or have an admin delete it and I'll remove it from those users pages. I personally don't like red links showing up in recent changes, cuz they annoy me, but thats just me, and I'm not planning on doing a whole lot of contributing here. Pinky49
