New toolEdit

Since P.R. dumping seems to be a recurring problem I would like to suggest a new tag something like the POV tag called PRD which will warn readers that the article reference may have been modified to cast positive or negative "public relations" spin. Wjbean 18:13, 6 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Wjbean: if you can still read this today and think that this is still relevant, please consider requesting it at WP:RT. Thanks, —PaleoNeonate - 06:30, 14 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Boilerplate text is historicalEdit

The document linked to in "The templates and their effects are shown in list of Boilerplate text" is historical, so the line should be removed.

Also, should {{advert}} be listed here? Maybe also {{Inline cleanup tags}} on a separate line? Thanks! --Geekdiva (talk) 10:06, 28 December 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Done@Geekdiva: {{Advert}} and {{Inline cleanup tags}} added. It seems that the boilerplace text was already removed. Thanks, —PaleoNeonate - 06:25, 14 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Geekdiva: I actually removed {{Inline cleanup tags}} since the existing Message templates link points to those (and a number of other template toolboxes). —PaleoNeonate - 07:25, 14 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Orphaning from template namespaceEdit

I'm intending to remove this navbox from template documentation. My understanding is that the purpose of this template is to be a convenience to users in utilizing the templates and pages contained within it, as opposed to a way of navigating from one such constituent to another. As such, even though it uses the navbox template for form, it's not strictly a navbox in purpose and, accordingly, it fails all five criteria in WP:NAVBOX. I don't think removing it from template documentation will have a detriment to its purpose, therefore. But before I proceed, any other views? --Bsherr (talk) 18:09, 7 January 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
