Custom Siggy

Hello Gwib. I linked to your talk page from and followed each of its steps. The last step however is a tad unclear (or perhaps I am not reading it properly) as to what, in the My Settings field for 'new signature,' I put after the forward slash. Either, "/sig2" or, "Skychildandsonofthesun/sig2" "User:Skychildandsonofthesun/sig2" or other?

I think this is where my problem lies. Either way, my customized signature is not working. It works on my subpage ( but is not showing up when I put the four tildes and sign my posts. There seems to be two areas that I need to update after making a subpage (My preferences: where I have intentionally left the user field empty) and (My settings: where I have input the tag -> {{subst:User:(Skychildandsonofthesun)/(User:Skychildandsonofthesun/sig2)}} ) but it does not seem to work. As mentioned, I think it is to do with what I put after the forward slash. Do you know what I am doing wrong or where I can get someone to help me sort this out.

Furthermore, the difference between My Settings (on simple.wikipedia) and My Preferences (on en.wikipedia) seems to have something to do with my problem.

THANKS --Skychildandsonofthesun (talk) 03:14, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

For a signature on this Wikipedia, you will need to create a signature page here, on simplewiki. Copy the code from your sig page on enwiki, and create a page here with it. Then put User:Skychildandsonofthesun/sig2 into the Nickname box in My Settings. Make sure the wikitext box is checked (just below the text box). This should then work. Any luck? - tholly --Talk-- 12:44, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Your time box

Hey Gwib, I hope you don't mind but I moved your time box UBX to en.wp and put it in my userspace. I wanted to use it on en.wp and I couldnt find it under a subpage of yours. you can see it here if you would like to move it to your user space i would be perfectly okay with that I just wanted to let you know. Thanks for all you work (and UBXs), A d \/\/ | | |Talk 02:18, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Quick deletion of Template:Livingdead

The page you wrote, Template:Livingdead, has been selected for quick deletion. This is because the page was deprecated or replaced by a newer template and are completely unused and not linked to. If you think this page should be kept, please add {{wait}} below the line {{QD}} and say why on the talk page. If the page is already gone, but you think this was an error, you can ask for it to be undeleted. Auntof6 (talk) 00:39, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

New timebox userbox

Hi, all. This notice is being placed at WP:Simple talk and on user talk pages of people transcluding {{User:Gwib/timebox}}.

I have built an updated timebox userbox. It is built from {{User:Gwib/timebox}}, but has some expanded functionality. You can find this userbox at {{User timebox2}}.
