This template was created for the sole purpose of establishing an easy to use character info-box within the OS-tan wiki. The infobox you now see is meant to be used for characters that are personifications of malware (a.k.a. viruses, spyware, Trojans, etc.), other templates will be created specifically for other types of personifications as they come of need.

Properly built character articles should make use of this template as it is easy to use and there is no much code used in the user side. This would prevent any inconsistencies between infoboxes, even more it would have a set standard of required info to be given in order to maintain an acceptable degree of quality.


This template is meant to reduce effort in the construction of tables and give all people the ability to fill out the infobox quite easily and without hassle. all you need to do is copy the following code and paste it at the beginning of the article you want to create/modify/whatever.

|tanname= Complete name of the character.
|image= Image of the character. all you need to do is put the filename and format. (EX: XP-tan.JPG)

|cname= The common name of the character. Only one please.
|alias= Any other known nicknames given to the character.
|creator= Who is the known creator of the character?
|debut= When did the character first appear?

|maper= Name of the malware that the character represents.
|mause= What kind of malware is it?
|osaff= Which OS is affected by the malware?
|datdisc= When was it discovered?

|fnote= Comments on the character.

All you need to do is erase all quoted text and include the information necesary. Do this correctly and you should have a template filled like the following template:
