A userbox is a small coloured box (see examples below) designed to appear only on a user page of a Wikidata-contributor as a communicative notice about the user, in order to directly or indirectly help contributors collaborate more effectively.

The first userboxes were introduced to support the Babel, which eases item-translation by allowing the user to view and edit more than one language in the Wikidata-interface.

Other userboxes can indicate WikiProject participation or indicate proficiencies or interests of a particular user. The userboxes might also indicate a users special editing privileges such as administrators, property creators, or bureaucrats.

Please create userboxes in this namespace "Template:" and place a link to the template on this page. If you can, please make them translatable to keep Wikidata multilingual.

Users by language

To build your custom babel template start out with:

{{#babel:}}

Add a language code and indicate with 1 to 5 or "n" your proficiency in that language:

{{#babel:en-1}}

Add more languages by separating them with a "|".

{{#babel:da-0|de-1|en-2|es-3|fr-4|it-5|he|pl-n}}

Special editing privilegesEdit

Some users have special editing privileges on Wikidata and might want to indicate so on their userpage. These user boxes are part of the babel-template and can be shown like this:

  • {{#babel:property_creator|admin|autopatrolled|bureaucrat}}
Babel user information
 This user is a property creator on Wikidata. (verify)
 This user is an administrator on Wikidata. (verify)
 This user was an autopatrolled user on Wikidata. (verify)
 This user is a bureaucrat on Wikidata(verify)
 This user has rollback rights on Wikidata. (verify)
Users by language

Some users also have special editing privileges that they would like to indicate on Wikidata. Very useful if you are looking for e.g. a admin on one of the Wikipedias. This can be indicated like this:

  • {{#babel:admin MediaWiki.org}}
Babel user information
 This user is an administrator on MediaWiki.org. (verify)
Users by language

WikiProject UserboxesEdit

All of these should also work from inside babel-box, or between {{Userboxtop}} and {{Userboxbottom}}.
