Userboxes on Wikipedia

Post by alex77r » Thu Sep 07, 2006 11:52 am

I am a contributor on Wikipedia and I had an idea concerning the popular Userboxes
Those are displayed in your user profile and are made to inform other people about your hobbies, interests, opinion...

I think it would be a good point to create one for EBT, for example :

"I track my euro notes" or "I am addicted to track my euro notes..." :)

For the pic, do I have to use this one ?

In fact, it is very restricted to upload pictures to wikipedia...

Maybe we can upload the picture and add the tag {{logo}}. I'm not sure if it's the best tag though.

I think, you can add several tags to wiki pictures.

I once uploaded a picture that i made by myself to Wiki-Commons (the media management system of Wikipedia). Concerning copyright, you must be sure not to violate someone else's copyrights.

I like tho logo. What about its copyrights?

To my knowledge, the original maker of that logo is Giro (aka. Philippe Girolami, the original Creator of EBT :)) and you should ask him for the copyright if you need to ask it from someone.
The original picture can still be seen in the upper part of the EBT page and can be also seen through this link: http://www.eurobilltracker.eu/img/e_tatze_k_g_t.gif

No, it's originally drawn by micro, but I guess we can safely say that using the logo for this purpose would be acceptable.

One in English, based on the Where's George Template.

Just add {{user EuroBillTracker}} to your user page on the English Wikipedia et voilà.

If you're using the French Wikipedia, add {{Utilisateur EuroBillTracker}}.

On the Portuguese Wikipedia, add {{Utilizador EuroBillTracker}}.

The userbox is now listed in the English Computing: Websites and Services userbox list, right between eBay and Everything2. It's also naturally shown on my own user page :wink:

A bit offtopic, but is the logo originally from this:

By the way, I think it would help a lot to promote EBT to have the EBT's logo in higher resolution,different colors... :roll:
