Users by language

As I read that your English is less than perfect, it would be more than helpful+welcome to anyone trying to contact you if you'd put a bable box on one of your user pages (or both).

As an example, I put here a dummy bable box: remove it or remove this edit after having noticed it, if you like to.

Overlapping BoxesEdit

  • Text or boxes overlapping boxes, as Bablebox (FF / WinXP): Is there a simple man's way to prevent such? --W. 19:21, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
What about using <br clear="all" /> or the shortcut Template:{{W./Learning by Teaching}}? Rocket000 16:08, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Tag "noinclude"Edit

Any text between "noinclude" and "/noinclude" is not included in ...???, therefore would not be displayed beimm Aufrufen eines Template oder bei Aktivität eines bot. [???] Siehe Pink_CC (Bearbeitungsansicht) oder deWP Talk page (Verhindern der Auto-Archivierung bestimmter Texte).

Non-breaking space, geschützter BindestrichEdit

Geschütztes Leerzeichen: („non-breaking space“): 10&nbsp;kg, Dr.&nbsp;Best

  • 10 kg, Dr. Best</nowiki>

Geschützter Bindestrich:

Unicode-Zeichen Nummer 8209 oder (hex) 2011: Müller&#x2011;Lüdenscheid, Regenhose und &#8209;jacke verwenden.

  • Müller‑Lüdenscheid, Regenhose und ‑jacke



On Commons and in enWP, use for example...

{{User:MiszaBot/config |minthreadsleft = 0 |algo = old(8d) |archive = User talk:Example/Archive}}

This would archive all edits on that page older than eight days, as "minthreadsleft = 0". Some users however prefer to leave a few messages in any case and might set "minthreadsleft = 3" to keep a 3 messages minimum on their talk page (I must admit that I'm not one of those users: The less, the better, imo).
