Can I See Your Badge, Please?[edit]

Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!

Badges are simple opt-in templates to advertise a commonality.

Creating a Badge[edit]

  1. Name your badge, and create a template for it
  2. Copy-paste existing badge code, e.g., from Template:User_human
  3. Use it on your user page, e.g., {{User human}}

Naming Badges[edit]

In order to reduce the namespace clutter, and make it easier to use badges, please follow these recommendations:

  • For user pages, use User verb foo
  • For hackerspaces, use Space verb bar
  • Use active verbs: makes, knows, loves, teaches...
  • Prefer generic over grammatically correct: makes beer is more generic than brews, and easier for non-native speakers

Example names:

Styling a Badge[edit]

This is a work in progress: badges should be styled per family, depending on their intended usage. E.g., user badges should match the User template.

Using a Badge[edit]

Badges can be used like any templates. For example, you can add the PRISM Break badge to your user page with this markup: {{Prism-Break}}
