[WikiEN-l] vote-stacking and userboxes

as everybody probably knows here, userboxes made vote-stacking
und campaigning easy, since one can easily find the "right" people
to vote on a subject.

Maybe a technical solution to this problem is possible.
What if a bot substitutes all userboxes on the user-pages?
Maybe it's even possible to somehow "tag" a template,
so it is always substituted? This could be used on warning
templates as well.

Of course this wouldn't eliminate vote-stacking at all,
since one can still find the "right" people on various
Wikiproject pages, but IMHO it's still a step in the right

best regards
