Floating image[edit]

Requests handled by Macy's123
NOTE: The sample previews will not be viewable in Safari! They will only be viewable in userpages that have a transparent background (this one is yellow)!

Here you can get a floating image on the right corner with a image. Remember, if an image is large, we can shrink it or we can make it semitransparent for you.

User Scripts[edit]

These are miniprograms that run on your Wikipedia account. Scroll down, pick a program, and add it to your monobook.
Note: Most of these scripts only work in Firefox!

Just add these onto the bottom of you monobook
V's place recommends...[edit]

We recommend all of the following (you should get these!). If you want an item, click the link, copy the code, then paste it into your monobook.

  • Quick preview -The Quick Preview code desplays an additional button on the bottom of the edit form that is much faster then Show Preview.
  • Quick Edit count -When you click user contributions on any userpage, three new tabs will be displayed at the top, which tells when the user is online and a quick edit count to check their experience.
  • Admin Highlighter -copy this code onto your monobook and every time an admin is listed on any page, this lighlighter will lightly highlight the name. This is good because it lets you know who is speaking or who you will be speaking to.
  • TWINKLE -Hundreds of users of this excellent script; it cannot be wrong! Delete, revert, report in seconds. What takes you five minutes takes less than a second with Twinkle!

Status Template[edit]

Requests handled by Macy's123
Note:This template works only in Firefox
