And finally, please join the official Starbase Discord and #starbase-wiki to discuss all things Starbase and Wiki!

User page template:

You can use this template when creating your user page. It creates an infobox where you can add a picture, and other information as well. Copy and paste it to the beginning of your user page.

{| class="infobox" style="float: right; clear: right; margin: 0 0 1em 1em; width: 300px;"
| style="text-align: center; font-size: 90%;" |[[ADD THE IMAGE PATH HERE (Image:FileName.jpg)]]
