I've made a userbox template, but it's still under construction. I was wondering if I was allowed to move this to Template space, or if it wasn't allowed. Any suggestions? Derilith 17:14, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Support - It is about the user, and many of such examples are allowed, like {{Userbox/time zone}}. XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 07:39, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
However, there might be some problem about the Chinese block. I will explain as I can as a Chinese.
1.) There are two types of Chinese, namely Traditional and Simplified. Traditional is more traditional than Simplified (understand?). So using Traditional to represent China might be better though Simplified is preferred in, mainland China nowadays.
2.) "中文" means the written language. There are many languages (Putonghua, Cantonese, 上海話, 閩南話 etc.) based on the same system of Chinese characters. So, if you want to say the official language (Mandarin, it is), you may choose from either "普通话/普通話" (the specific name of the language) or "国语/國語" (the language being chosen by the Chinese government). But they mean the same thing.
Hope that helps. XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 07:39, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

I don't think you're required to get permission to create a userbox template and may I say language boxes are a great idea. I'd suggest that, like on Wikipedia, you indicate the level of fluency within the boxes.--Diberville 14:09, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I think it would help to have these, especially since RuneScape wiki also exists in other languages (not that it may matter, but just saying). Butterman62 (talk) 16:09, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
When I first came to the wiki, these were ALREADY IMPLEMENTED. Soon after, they were deleted. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko)
