I (SignpostMarv Martin) quickly ported this template over from the SL History Wiki.

It's a geeky method of emulating the SL Profile and uses the hCard Microformat, and is in need of being modified to be more efficient- using the Parser functions if this wiki has them installed.

Guidelines for usage

It is suggested that SL hCard be created in your account's userspace as a separate article, purely for the convenience and flexibility to modify the hCard without affecting the edit history of an article it is included in, and also to make it easier to include the hCard in other articles as shown below.

Guidelines for modification

  • Please don't modify the code extensively if you're not familiar with MediaWiki syntax.
  • Please sign a bug with <small>discovered by ~~~~</small>
    • Similarly, please sign when a bug has been fixed by using <del>example</del> around the bug description followed by <ins>fixed by ~~~~</ins>
  • Once the bugs are fixed, it would be appreciated if the template was locked from being edited by non-admins, for the same reasons the Infobox templates are locked on the Wikipedia

Any random questions about the SL-hCard should be made on the talk page for this template, or on my talk page

Known Bugs

  1. This installation of MediaWiki seems to want to convert the closing tags on a lot of the elements to HTML entities for some reason.discovered by SignpostMarv Martin 09:25, 8 January 2007 (PST) I modified the source a bit, using divs now. Unfortunately the lists are not displayed correctly now...discovered by Anders Nordberg 05:16, 9 January 2007 (PST)
  1. The external image URL provided the SLOpenID avatar profile photo caching service isn't displayed on this wiki, but is on the SL History Wiki.discovered by SignpostMarv Martin 09:25, 8 January 2007 (PST) External images must be allowed in the mediawiki-config. See WikiMedia-Wiki. I'll check it tomorrow at work. Anders Nordberg 08:23, 9 January 2007 (PST)


  1. I think there might be ongoing issues about including the uuid in the template, given that providing it to all users could promote serious abuse. Whilst leaving it at a default value of 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 is certainly one option, complete removal from the template might be a better one. --Alison Wheels 07:37, 9 January 2007 (PST)
