Usage[change source]

The simplest use is to place {{wikibreak}} on your user and/or user talk pages and the above will be displayed, but with your user name in place of "Wikibreak".
To change only the message, use {{wikibreak|message=YourMessage}}, where YourMessage is the message you wish to use instead of the default above.
For more options, see below.
