Can I See Your Badge, Please?

Badges are simple opt-in templates to advertise a commonality.

Creating a Badge

  1. Name your badge, and create a template for it
  2. Copy-paste existing badge code, e.g., from Template:User_GNU
  3. Use it on your user page, e.g., {{User GNU}}

Naming Badges

In order to reduce the namespace clutter, and make it easier to use badges, please follow these recommendations:

  • For user pages, use User verb foo
  • Use active verbs: makes, knows, loves, teaches...
  • Prefer generic over grammatically correct: makes beer is more generic than brews, and easier for non-native speakers

Example names:

Template:User makes Parabola {{User makes Parabola}} Template:User makes Parabola
Template:User uses Parabola {{User uses Parabola}} Template:User uses Parabola

Styling a Badge

This is a work in progress: badges should be styled per family, depending on their intended usage. E.g., user badges should match the User template.

Using a Badge

Badges can be used like any templates. For example, you can add the GNU badge to your user page with this markup: {{User GNU}}
