If you have a Wikipedia account

Postby Stephen K » Fri Feb 05, 2010 11:13 am

If you have a Wikipedia account and use userboxes, I've created one for Theravada users:

For example, here is my userpage with userboxes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Eu.stefan

If you want to include the Theravada userbox, just copy this in your userpage:

{{User:Eu.stefan/Userbox/Theravada}}


And if you want other userboxes too:

My philosophy is simple: saying 'yes' to the positive and 'no' to the negative.

With much metta,

Nice work stefan!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Thanks Stefan! I always liked the look of those userboxes (reminds me of some of my bumper stickers, such as the one in my signature line). I went and added a bunch of userboxes to my user and even created a few that apparently did not exist, for example:

If anyone wants to use the one above, copy this to your userpage:

{{User:Theravada1/mahabodhi}}

I am up to 21 userboxes so far: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Theravada1
