Casualties and lossesEdit

I've added "and equipment losses" to the description for the "casualties" field to match current practice. The templatedata should probably be updated too. See discussions:

Kendall-K1 (talk) 15:02, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

I have tweaked this a little and added some guidance re listing equipment losses per the first of the discussions listed. I have also updated the "template data" section to mirror the edits made to the "parameters" section. Regards, Cinderella157 (talk) 22:55, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Edit templateEdit

The "map_caption" parameter is not in line with MOS:ACCESS#Text / MOS:FONTSIZE, which say to "avoid using smaller font sizes in elements that already use a smaller font size, such as infoboxes, navboxes and reference sections." It clearly produces a smaller than acceptable font. – Muboshgu (talk) 20:00, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

Muboshgu, The processing for that looks to be carried out by Module:Location map line 228 which would probably have knock-on effects elsewhere, on over half a million pages. *Gulp* Cabayi (talk) 12:07, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
Cabayi, gulp indeed. Thanks for identifying the source for me. – Muboshgu (talk) 16:18, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Edit request: remove center tagEdit

Request to copy my changes from the sandbox (permalink). This edit removes the center tag around the location map which is obsolete, and in fact redundant to the float = 'center' passed to Module:Location map. An example of usage is at my sandbox, copied from Skirmish at Hunter's Farm. Many thanks, User:GKFXtalk 20:25, 9 May 2019 (UTC).

  Done — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 21:25, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

Guidance/Dispute on using the "result" fieldEdit

There is currently an ongoing discussion at Talk:Battle_of_Dien_Bien_Phu#Infobox, between me and User:Eastfarthingan. The discussion is about this edit, which removed the "decisive" qualifier and detailed results of the battle. I think the question is wether one would rather follow the infobox guidance (which discourages "decisive") or the local consensus (which, until now, was to keep the status quo because the battle was decisive). I have agreed with User:Eastfarthingan to take the matter here to get some input from the broader community. Averell (talk) 18:23, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

This would be the venue to discuss the template guidance generally, and I don't think it's appropriate to try and settle specific cases such as Dien Bien Phu here. If normal discussion at the article TP does not succeed in establishing a consensus, then an RfC there is probably the next step. Factotem (talk) 18:42, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

@MSGJ: @Jonesey95: @Frietjes: can any of you help me with this change? Jdlrobson (talk) 21:42, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
Jdlrobson, okay, but I moved the templatestyles to the module. Frietjes (talk) 21:54, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
