"title" portionEdit

Hi, what is the point of having "|title=User admin" on this template? It displays "User admin" at the top of the userbox, text which I don't feel belongs there. Thanks!   — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 06:02, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Indeed. -- Bryan (talk to me) 19:38, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

"verify" linkEdit

A link should be placed on this userbox to verify that the user is indeed an administrator. Wikipedia's admin userbox has this, so the code from there can probably be used to create one. Blueag9 08:29, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I concur with this suggestion.   — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 19:43, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
  • A good idea. The boxes on my userpage already do this, when I saw WP did it, I changed mine (which are hardcoded for various obscure reasons I now forget but having to do with colors). I should have suggested it back then, my bad. ++Lar: t/c 04:12, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I also think this is a good idea. --Digon3 talk 14:16, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

I've gone ahead and made the change, since it seems like there's a general consensus for its addition and it's not that controversial a change anyway. EVula // talk // // 15:29, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Hum - only controversial in the sense that everyone will verify as you?! --Herby talk thyme 15:49, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
I've corrected this mistake, I think :-) le Korrigan bla 17:09, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
Haha, whoopsie. I forgot that my own was hardcoded similarly to Lar's, and should have pulled the code straight from the original template. *cough* My bad. :) EVula // talk // // 19:42, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
So you SAY... I smell an evil plot. :) ++Lar: t/c 21:15, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Small icon in the upper right cornerEdit

I took a template from enwiki and placed it here. Not many admins are using it (maybe because it's brand new) so I thought it would be nice to just add it into this template. {{administrator}}. Actually, I'd like every admin to have this icon on their user page to identify them, just like every admin is on the List of administrators. --Steinninn 16:30, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Please make this optional, I'd prefer not to have this small icon, thanks. ++Lar: t/c 21:50, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Ditto --Herby talk thyme 07:04, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, it should be separate from this template. As it is, Just because someone is an admin here doesn't mean they're an admin on Wikipedia, which is what all of those icons refer to... EVula // talk // // 15:04, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
Do we have a different logo for a Commons admin? --Steinninn 16:15, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
Yes, this one. --Digon3 talk 16:21, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
This was meant to be a template for Commons admin. I just thought the logo was global (not just for wikipedia admins). --Steinninn 16:53, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
How about this one? --Steinninn 17:00, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
The idea of an "admin puzzle(d)" icon is sufficiently amusing to be used I think! --Herby talk thyme 17:12, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Change categoryEdit

I propose to put this template into the Wikimedia officer templates category. - Orion 8 (talk) 23:19, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

✓ Done And moved the category to the /doc page. Rocket000 (talk) 23:34, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

German versionEdit

A German version (Template:User admin/de) was created for this template by The Evil Public Computer (talk · contribs) and needs to be added to the language switches. Cheers, AusTerrapin (talk) 16:52, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

✓ Done. --AVRS (talk) 16:14, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Addition of translationEdit

You could add the translation from Portuguese {{User admin/pt}}? Greetings. Pablodiego15 (talk) 06:47, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

✓ Done. --AVRS (talk) 12:40, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. :D Pablodiego15 (talk) 02:31, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Italian translationEdit

Please add the new language version: I created {{User admin/it}}.
Also, since one have to edit the page anyway to add a translation, consider using a {{LangSwitch}} instead of many subpages: it's easier for this short templates. --Ricordisamoa 23:16, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

We've also {{Autotranslate}} but this would require editing each subpage. -- Rillke(q?) 16:01, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
Could one of you two code the {{LangSwitch}}? Mono 22:07, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
✓ Done by another editor. —Mono 16:02, 27 March 2013 (UTC)


{{sudo}} Please add Template:User admin/ko. Thanks. --레비ReviD✉CM 04:32, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

✓ Done, thanks for your help! --whym (talk) 08:20, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
