Re:Boxes

Well, those "Boxes" are called Infoboxes. There are lots of variations (like Wizard infobox; Ravenclaw individual infobox; Ministry of Magic individual infobox, Dark Wizard infobox, Hag infobox, Order of the Phoenix individual infobox, and many more)! I advise you to check the List of current infoboxes and choose the one you prefer. On the desired infobox's page you will see the coding (a box under Clean template). You can copy that coding to your userpage and fill it out with the desired information.
For Example:
This is the Clean template...
{{Ministry of Magic individual infobox
|image=
|name=
|hideb=
|born=
|died=
|blood=
|alias=
|title=
|hidep=
|species=
|gender=
|height=
|hair=
|eyes=
|skin=
|hidef=
|family=
|hidem=
|animagus=
|boggart=
|wand=
|patronus=
|hidea=
|job=
|house=
|loyalty=
}}

After you fill the template in with the information it will be something like this:
{{Ministry of Magic individual infobox
|image=[[File:Bozo.jpg|250px]]
|name=Lucinda Thomsonicle-Pocus
|hideb=
|born=30th of February, 1912
|died=Not yet!
|blood=Half-blood
|alias=Lucy
|title=Minister
|hidep=
|species=Human
|gender=Female
|height=8 foot
|hair=Dark
|eyes=Blue
|skin=Pale
|hidef=
|family=*Archibald Alderton (father)
*Benjamin Arcturus (brother)
*Tessie Guggenheim (great-aunt)
|hidem=
|animagus=Eagle
|boggart=Spider!
|wand=9.8 inches, willow and dragon heartstring
|patronus=Dog
|hidea=
|job=Minister for Magic
|house=Hufflepuff
|loyalty=*Ministry of Magic
*Order of the Phoenix
*[[Potions Club]]
}}

That will produce something like this:
