Circumstances of creationEdit

I am creating the accompanying template page pursuant to lack of response to the following, which has now moved from WP:VP/T (section Proposal to create a comprehensible version of TfD-del'd [[Template:Text]]) to that pg's archive:

_ _ I propose to create a template {{text}} whose handwritten text runs 21 lines on a steno pad.
_ _ This would arguably contravene a WP:TfD decision, but the new version i drafted (prior to realizing a former one had existed!) arguably answers all the objections raised at TfD. Historical details and opportunity to raise objections follow:
_ _ Template:Text was routinely deleted 08:38, 21 July 2005 by User:Radiant! per TfD debate, complete as of 08:31, 19 July 2005. Its complete content was the 7 chars "{{{1}}}". The debate follows:
TfD notice for Text is also on Template:Mapquest because the latter may use the former.
Huh? Note: the "What links here" page returns a couple of templates that call for a "text=" parameter, but they long predate this brand-new template. I don't think those intended to include this template. --Tabor 22:24, 11 July 2005 (UTC)
  • Note: I am wary about putting {{tfd}} on this template, in case it is now inadvertently being substituted anywhere. --Tabor 22:28, 11 July 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete very difficult to understand template. -Splash 00:28, 12 July 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. Entirely useless template. View source to see what I mean. --Blu Aardvark | (talk) | (contribs) 08:41, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. Unexplained and unused. (SEWilco 02:32, 16 July 2005 (UTC))
  • Delete - it is not a sub-template of Template:Mapquest, which just uses a parameter called "text". An old bug used to make such parameters as {{{text}}} appear and link to non-existent templates because of the way the innermost curly-braces were interpreted. Template:Text serves no purpose. -- Netoholic @ 16:20, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
  • Mapquest template author note: That, was a parameter, like Netoholic stated. ::--AllyUnion (talk) 07:05, 18 July 2005 (UTC)
_ _ Of the nominator & 4 other voters, only one has edited other than user talk pages in the last 2 months, and that one's user page features a bitter response to an arbitration verdict. This leaves me doubtful of the feasibility of reasonable reconsideration by any of the previous voters.
_ _ This is probably too trivial for attention, in which case i'll simply create my version & we can deal then with any objections. Add something here and leave a new note on my talk page, if you want to discuss it first here, probably including my initially keying the long <NOINCLUDE> portion here instead of onto Template:Text. (The included portion is the same old 7 characters.)

Boy, do i feel stupid. I still think i can do what i intended, but it's going to take even more work than did setting up the documentation right.
--Jerzyt 21:25, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

  • For the record, I went ahead and restored this and added documentation explaining how it might be employed in a useful fashion. –xenotalk 16:54, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 22 March 2019Edit

Please remove the line <noinclude>{{pp-template|small=yes}}</noinclude> - protection templates are automatically handled by the documentation page. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 06:51, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

  Done — JJMC89(T·C) 07:00, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
