< Template:User

Documentation This is a documentation subpage for Template:User (see that page for the template itself).
It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.

This template makes it easier for someone to link to another user, complete with a link to the user's contributions, talk page and user page. This also can be used to create a signature for another user. The only parameter needed for this template is a user's username. If a non-existent user is used in the template, red links occur.

Usage

This template takes one optional parameter. Its values can include:

  • name
  • talk
  • contribs
  • scratch

It can also simply be unused.

I am sorry to say that we had to block Scratchteam (talk | contribs) because they were being very inappropriate.

Really? I think you blocked the wrong person. Scratchteam is a bureaucrat.

Oh no! I must have chosen the wrong dropdown option!
