Protected edit request on 19 August 2019Edit

The page is created only for the information of the person who is involved in the dubbing industry more than 2 decades. The page is to display the works and the basic information of the dubbing films, which will be easy to the viewers who will try to know about the latest films in regional languages. This is not a promotional page or not used for any commercial purpose. Gowthamgda (talk) 07:09, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

  Not done. This page is for changes to the speedy deletion template. If you want to contest the speedy deletion of a certain page, you need to state this on its talk page. Regards SoWhy 07:24, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Db-g11 white-spaceEdit

I have created {{Db-g11/sandbox}} with a {{#tag:span|long prose|style=white-space:normal}} to fix the horizontal scroll problem. Any objections to pushing it live? Fred Gandt · talk · contribs 21:05, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

What horizontal scroll problem? Why does it matter on a page that is about to be deleted in any case? --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:36, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
Do you object to a trivial change that fixes the display of an informational template or not? Fred Gandt · talk · contribs 00:25, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
Could you provide more detail on the issue? I'm not seeing it. --Bsherr (talk) 00:53, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
The sentence that reads "However, the mere fact that a company, organization, or product is a page's subject does not, on its own, qualify that page for deletion under this criterion. Nor does this criterion apply where substantial encyclopedic content would remain after removing the promotional material as deletion is not cleanup; in this case please remove the promotional material yourself, or add the {{advert}} tag to alert others to do so" displays with white-space:nowrap, causing the template to stretch to vastly wider than most screens will show; that's a 2424px wide sentence (at font-size:13.3px) with an attempted 20% of the available page width dedicated to margin (10% either side) and some little extra padding. The result is a requirement to scroll sideways to read the information. Viewing {{Db-g11}} on anything but an uncommonly wide monitor or an uncommonly dramatic negative browser zoom will show the problem. Users unfamiliar with the content of the template should not be expected to scroll sideways to read it. By adding a <span>...</span> container to the sentence, with white-space:normal fixes the problem as can be seen clearly when viewing {{Db-g11/sandbox}}.

Apparently my own user CSS is applying the nowrap. No wonder you can't see the problem. Never mind *derp*. Fred Gandt · talk · contribs 02:53, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
Ah, very glad you've got it sorted out. I was just dragging my window wide to narrow and back, watching the text wrap, and wondering what I was missing! --Bsherr (talk) 02:57, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
Sorry about that. I don't even know why I have that rule (lesson to be learned: leave code comments). Something somewhere must have been annoying me at some point. I should probably take some time to review it all. Actually, I have 100% edit summaries so I might have said something useful at the time. Anyway, that's my problem now.

{{db-empty}} in portal spaceEdit

When transcluded in the portal namespace, should Template:db-empty invoke Template:db-p1 (with the "|A3" parameter) or Template:db-p2? Both could equally apply and be referred to. (I don't think it should invoke Template:db-a3, which is only intended for articles.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Geolodus (talkcontribs) 09:40, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Imho, db-p1 with A3 as a parameter makes more sense since it's the more specific criterion to P2. Regards SoWhy 09:56, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

There has been no discussion yet besides SoWhy's comment. Should the change (so it displays db-p1 with A3) be done? Geolodus (talk) 12:42, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

I concur with SoWhy. Thanks. --Bsherr (talk) 14:03, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Can someone make the change then? I don't know template markup well enough to do it myself. Geolodus (talk) 16:27, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Return to "Db-meta" page.
