Usage

This userbox may be used by members of the Ten Year Society of Wikipedians that have been editing for ten years or more to indicate their membership if they so wish. This userbox will automatically add your userpage to category Members of the Ten Year Society of Wikipedia editors. You can disable automatic categorization using |nocat=true.

Parameters

If no parameters are given, the userbox displays as above. Optionally, the following parameters may be supplied to modify the display of the userbox.

Unnamed parameter

If the first parameter is unnamed, it will specify free text to append to the end of the default text. No space will appear between the two unless given at the beginning of the supplied text.

{{User Ten Year Society| (since 2005)}} renders as:

Ten Year Society userbox.svgThis user has been editing Wikipedia for more than ten years (since 2005).

{{User Ten Year Society|—since July 28, 2005}} (note the lack of a space after "|" here) renders as:

Ten Year Society userbox.svgThis user has been editing Wikipedia for more than ten years—since July 28, 2005.

year, month, and day

If desired, the named parameters year, month, and day can be given as the date the user first started editing Wikipedia, to cause the userbox to calculate the amount of time that has elapsed since then automatically.

{{User Ten Year Society|year=2005|month=1|day=1}} renders as:

Ten Year Society userbox.svgThis user has been editing Wikipedia for more than ten years (16 years).

format

By default, the duration is output as years, months, and days, but format=ym can be specified to only show years and months, or format=y can be used to display only the years.

{{User Ten Year Society|year=2004|month=12|day=31|format=ym}} renders as:

Ten Year Society userbox.svgThis user has been editing Wikipedia for more than ten years (16 years).

{{User Ten Year Society|year=2005|month=7|day=28|format=y}} renders as:

Ten Year Society userbox.svgThis user has been editing Wikipedia for more than ten years (15+).

nocat

If you need to avoid categorization where the template is used (e.g. on pages where it's only acting as an example), set nocat=true, as below (rendering is unchanged).

{{User Ten Year Society|nocat=true}}

period

By default, the sentence in the userbox will end with a period (full stop). This can be suppressed by setting period to a blank value.

{{User Ten Year Society|year=2006|month=1|day=31|period=}} renders as:

Ten Year Society userbox.svgThis user has been editing Wikipedia for more than ten years (14 years, 11 months, and 1 day)

period can be set to a non-blank value to provide a substitute for the usual ".", but note that due to template limitations (and unlike the unnamed parameter), if the value contains leading (or trailing) spaces, they need to be specified as HTML character references, e.g.   or  .

sc

Specifying sc=n or sc=no will suppress the serial comma used before the "and" in ymd format.

{{User Ten Year Society|year=2005|month=1|day=1|sc=n}} renders as:

Ten Year Society userbox.svgThis user has been editing Wikipedia for more than ten years (16 years).

whitespace

By default, one space will appear between the userbox's default text and the calculated duration. whitespace=<br> can be used to output a line break before the duration instead.

{{User Ten Year Society|year=2005|month=1|day=1|whitespace=<br />}} renders as:

Ten Year Society userbox.svgThis user has been editing Wikipedia for more than ten years
(16 years).

Note that due to template limitations (and unlike the unnamed parameter), if the value of whitespace contains leading or trailing spaces, they need to be specified as HTML character references, e.g. &nbsp; or &thinsp;.

{{User Ten Year Society|year=2005|month=1|day=1|period=|whitespace=<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;}} renders as:
