Userboxes (or more properly, ''"userboxen"''), are templates used to quickly and easily identify a page or userspace profile page that belongs to a particular group. Associating yourself with a group is completely optional, but is helpful for other delegates to find you. You can add yourself to the group by simply adding the relevant tag to your profile page. The groups may reflect a personal attribute you share, or a particular interest, such as Astronomy, Ham Radio, Geocaching, etc.

Userboxes (or more properly, "userboxen"), are templates used to quickly and easily identify a page or userspace profile page that belongs to a particular group. Associating yourself with a group is completely optional, but is helpful for other delegates to find you. You can add yourself to the group by simply adding the relevant tag to your profile page. The groups may reflect a personal attribute you share, or a particular interest, such as Astronomy, Ham Radio, Geocaching, etc.

This page contains a list of all available userbox templates.
