I've noticed a couple wikis that have special labels on profiles for some users (like having "bureaucrat" in addition to "admin", or something unique rather than "blocked"). How is this done? Totalsolitude 09:01, May 16, 2012 (UTC)

You can edit these MediaWiki pages on your wiki:
  • MediaWiki:user-identity-box-group-blocked - Blocked users
  • MediaWiki:user-identity-box-group-bureaucrat - Bureaucrats
  • MediaWiki:user-identity-box-group-chatmoderator - Chat Mods
  • MediaWiki:user-identity-box-group-founder - Founder
  • MediaWiki:user-identity-box-group-sysop - Admins

Hope this helps.

Thanks! And a follow up question...

I belong to multiple user groups, how do I get multiple labels on my profile? Utter solitude 17:21, May 20, 2012 (UTC)

Are you the founder of the wiki? Founders are b-crats, admins, and chat mods at the same time, but the profile label is just "founder" or something like that. Admins are also chat mods, but their profile label is just "admin".  Pretty pink123 Darkness...05:50,5/21/2012 
Admin Tools Wiki has a working solution that is easy to implement. Be sure to give proper credit and sourcing when using it, though, to fulfill the license termsTK999 12:45, May 21, 2012 (UTC)
Weird. The documentation on the above admintools js workaround suggests it may be a TOU violation to change "'admin' to 'beat cop'". Surely if there's an editable MediaWiki page that will do the same thing, no such violation is possible, is it? I mean we can change MediaWiki:user-identity-box-group-sysop, can't we? czechout@Wikia    fly tardis  <span style="">16:02: Mon 21 May 2012 
Exactly. It is only for adding additional boxes besides the already customizable ones. Naturally, MediaWiki pages are best if available, but if someone wants additional boxes, s/he can add them. TK999 16:08, May 21, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. I have attempted to implement it on onceuponatime.wikia.com, but it does not seem to be working. (I'm not good with JS) Utter solitude 04:22, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

Nevermind, I got it! Thanks for your help everyone! :D Utter solitude 04:34, May 22, 2012 (UTC)
