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

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

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
