Every once and a while, to avoid clutter on my talk page, I will move the messages to the archive.

Hi! This is Hieifireshadow, and I was wondering how you got those nifty little sidebar things on your user page. I really like them and I want to learn how to put them up. :D


You mean the "About me" section? Well, to do that, type in <div class="userbox">. Then, type in the templates about you. For example, {{User Male}}, {{User Smart}}, and {{User Glasses}}. Then, type in </div>.
Here is what the example sidebar should look:
034.png This user identifies as male.
480.png This user is intelligent.
Max Glasses.png This user wears glasses.

And here is what the wikicode to make it was:
<div class="userbox">
{{User Male}}
{{User Smart}}
{{User Glasses}} </div>

There are lots of templates to chose from. You put the tags on by typing in {{The name of the template}} You can find the templates here. Some templates, such as {{User Favorite}}, require you to specify information, separated by |. For example, if your favorite Pokémon is Uxie, you would type {{User Favorite|480|Uxie}} and get

480.png This user's favorite Pokémon is Uxie.

Thanks a lot, Nocti! ^^ I'm really fond of those things; soon enough, I think there'll be about a million on my page. XD Thanks again.
