Hey, Cookman! Your message on the Triple Deluxe Talk page gives me the impression that you are somewhat hesitant when it comes to making edits. (If I'm wrong, then forget I mentioned it!) That's totally understandable, but feel free to make any edits you see fit on any page without the need to ask permission; if you make an undesirable edit, an admin, Patroller, or really any editor can either rollback or fix up those "bad edits."

I'm not actually on the staff, myself, but I thought I'd offer a bit of advice, anyway! If you have any questions about anything, feel free to reach out to me or any other active editor or staffer! Welcome! --EzloSpirit (talk) 19:25, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice! Since I'm new to the wiki, I wasn't sure if I had any restrictions or anything like that. Thanks again!!!!!! :D - Cookman (talk) 19:49, 13 May 2014 (UTC)


Hello! Sorry for the late replay; I think your problem is with the image size, to change the image size, to say, 25 px width you just add |25px to the end of the filename of the image, for instance, [[File:Wii_Logo.png|40px]]. I think the size you specify is the width, so making all your userbox images 40px will not result in a perfectly uniform set of userboxes for images that are not square, so you will have to play with the number depending on the shape of the image. Hope this helps! T.c.w7468 15:50, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much! That helped tremendously! I do have another question, though. How do I make a userbox tower? Cookman (talk) 18:09, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Userbox containers are pretty simple to make:
{{userbox container <l|r>|<header>}}
{{userbox 1}}
{{userbox 2}}
{{userbox 3}}
You can enclose within a single container as many userboxes as you'd like. The alignment of the container on the page can be set to either left ("l") or right ("r"), where it says "<l|r>." Multiple containers will be aligned on the page in the order in which you write them into the source. (For example, if there are two right-aligned containers, the first one you make will be closer to the right than the second. Same with left.) --EzloSpirit (talk|contribs) 20:37, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Okay, I just tried it, and it it refused to work properly. What might I be doing wrong? Cookman (talk) 14:28, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

I just checked the edit history of your userpage, and I could find an instance of your trying this out, so I really have no way of knowing what went wrong. My suggestion at this point would be to look at the source (by going into the edit screen) of a userpage that contains a working userbox container---e.g. T.c.w's has one, and mine has three---and use that as a template for your own container(s). --EzloSpirit (talk|contribs) 23:55, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Okay, I'll try that! Thanks! And the reason it didn't show up in the history is that I didn't save it, I just previewed it. Cookman (talk) 12:59, 23 May 2014 (UTC)
