Userbox Order

I suggest changing the userbox list to be in a logical order (ex. sort ranks in order). Comments? --Yakatz 08:44, June 18, 2007 (EDT)

The software sorts all categoried items alphabetically. However, you can sub-catagorize items. --RWSmith 15:13, July 20, 2007 (EDT)

Suggested change to naming convention of Userboxes

I recommend we change all Userboxes from "User <Userbox name>" to simply, "<Userbox name>". Example:

From: MeritbadgeDotOrg:Userboxes/User District Award of Merit
  To: MeritbadgeDotOrg:Userboxes/District Award of Merit

Reasoning: If we categorize Userboxes correctly, which we do, then they all end up under "U". If we make the above suggested change, we can have hundreds of Userboxes which will be much easier to find when browsing the category Category:Userboxes. As it currently stands, it's pretty tough to wade through the few dozen we already have.

All Userboxes will be required to be placed in one of the two following places:

For all users: MeritbadgeDotOrg:Userboxes/<PAGENAME>
Personal ones: User:<USERNAME>/Userboxes/<PAGENAME>

I realize a few things, already... this change will:

  • clearly involve some work, i.e., tracking down "what links here" for each UBX already in use; and
  • have some affect on the results when using the Search feature; but, I don't think it will be a negative impact;

As such, I beleive that this little project will be worth the effort. What say you all? Any ideas?—RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 14:54, March 29, 2008 (EDT)

Vigil, Powder Horn, Wood Badge

How about a Vigil Honor, Powder Horn and Wood Badge Userbox??? --Wagionvigil

Functioning "Template:User Vigil" (Userbox) done. --RWSmith 11:06, July 15, 2007 (EDT)

OA Lodge

I would do this myself, but I have no idea how... Something like: This user is an Ordeal member in the order of the arrow in {{Lodge}} --Unionhawk 21:07, November 19, 2007 (EST)

Workpage -vs- Project

Hmmm, I just stumbled across this page...never had even heard about Workpages before, even as a long-tine Wikipedian. Anyway, I recently created MeritBadgeDotOrg:WikiProject Userboxes, but now it seems to duplicate the existence of this page. Which method should we use?
