How do you put a sticker on your own profile for a descendent of Magna Carta?

I noticed that I’m a great + granddaughter of more than a few Magna Carta Baron Sureties and I’m not sure how to mention that on my evolving personal profile page.Kersey-456. They are Bigod-2,Bohun-7,Clare-651,Clavering-13(first cousin)Huntingfield-11,Mamet-18, Quincey-226, Ros-149, Say-246, De_Vere-309,

Descendant stickers can be found here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Template:Descendant

If you wanted to use the MC image, it is this one : 

You would use Magna_Carta_Team_Base_Camp.png in the descendant sticker, just as I use my great-great-grandfather's image in this one : {{Descendant|image=Paul-5402.jpg|id=[[Paul-5402|Judge George William Paul]]}}

I tried this twice on my personal profile kersey -456 And it shows up red and says template. What does ethos mean?

I have no idea. 

I just added to (and removed from) a profile the following sticker without anything red :  {{Descendant|image=Magna_Carta_Team_Base_Camp.png|id=[[Hardell-1|William  (Hardell) de Hardell]]}}

The descendant sticker also allows more than one name - but you'd need to ask Aleš just how many.  (On my profile I had three, but dropped it back to two.)

(Please note - I am not related to, or descended from, Williamde Hardell.  He was just the first name on which I clicked.)

Kelly - sorry! I don't check G2G as often as I should and just just your post.

Have you found the Magna Carta Project page with coding for "tailored" descendant stickers you can use?

If not, check it out at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Magna_Carta_Stickers#sticker 

Since you have so many barons, I'd recommend this one:

{{Descendant
|image=Magna Carta Team Base Camp.png
|imagetext=Magna Carta Project logo
|id=several [[:Category:Surety Barons|Magna Carta Surety Barons]]
}}

copy/paste the following paragraph into your profile - that should work (give me a holler if it doesn't):

{{Descendant|image=Magna Carta Team Base Camp.png|imagetext=Magna Carta Project logo|id=several [[:Category:Surety Barons|Magna Carta Surety Barons]]}} 

Cheers, Liz

I don't see any there that specifically say "descendant of . . ." - which is why I suggested the descendant sticker.

David’s link is to a page about project boxes that are for profiles managed by the Magna Carta Project or in trails overseen by the Project and managed by the Scotland Project, and not for any other profiles. If used on other profiles, they will create database errors and will be removed.

There is a page with example stickers which can be tailored in a variety of ways at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Magna_Carta_Stickers. Go to the second section, on profiles outside the Project's scope.

Thank you for that link, Michael.

I'm sure there are a host of super intellects making the decisions about how to do everything on WikiTree, including these danged badges and stickers, but I am often totally confused. I consider myself relatively intelligent, but it's hard getting around this site. I've had members of my rather educated DNA Group give up because they find WT SO esoteric and judgmental. I'm not willing to give up, so I'm asking you powers that be to please make this site more user friendly. I really, really want to be a contributing member and an asset. I ask a question and am either given a link that doesn't have anything to do with my question or doesn't work. I know you have tons of questions, but there must be a way of making this more usable.

I was thinking your comment had nothing to do with this question, but then realized that you got here as a referral from your question about adding a Magna Carta sticker - because it has the answer (copied from one of the answers here):

{{Descendant|image=Magna Carta Team Base Camp.png|imagetext=Magna Carta Project logo|id=several [[:Category:Surety Barons|Magna Carta Surety Barons]]}}

Your question also spoke of other stickers, and I referred you to Space: Relationship Stickers as a possible source of enlightenment (and one of the examples is Edward III). For the Matilda part of your other question, you might want to post in that G2G discussion - https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/1288837/how-are-you-related-the-empress-maud-matilda-lady-the-english
