Template talk:ContributorU

I propose this template be changed for smoother wording, (getting rid of the "them" construction if at all possible, as it's acceptable usage, but awkward) to further separate user pages from articles, and to somehow stress that articles are not the subject's own. Something along these lines. -- Sine 22:44, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

The article ContributorU is about this Wikifurry. Wikifur User

See ContributorU for the article about this person. Wikifur User

Come to think of it, the user page should really be "about the wikifurry".

How about this version? I would also change Template:Contributor so that "user" linked to Category:Wikifurries. --GreenReaper(talk) 23:09, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Your version looks good to me, although I prefer the thicker dashed line (it's doesn't make me think so strongly of sewing). -- Sine 23:34, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

It could even be non-dashed! --GreenReaper(talk) 05:39, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

I like that. -- Sine 01:04, 31 October 2006 (UTC)


What do you guys think about making the ContributorU box the same width as other userboxes for a more "flowing" feel when they're in lists (like on my page)? Spaz Kitty 01:45, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Well, the main issue there is that some people's names are longer than others. Consider User:Baral'heia for example. There may be a way to make it fit, though. Maybe just "See the article about X"? --GreenReaper(talk) 01:53, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
I know it's an old discussion, but I really like this idea. It would probably fit well if the font size were smaller, like in the userboxes. -- Natasha Softpaw ( talk | contribs ) 05:18, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Well, I tried out making one that would fit the standard size, and it even fits with the user above! So hopefully this will work. --GreenReaper(talk) 05:28, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Neat, thank you very much! It looks great :-) -- Natasha Softpaw ( talk | contribs ) 10:30, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
