Remove extraneous blank spaceEdit

{{editprotected}} This template has an extraneous space that causes problems when immediately followed by certain other templates, for example {{U.S. Highway WikiProject}}. Please make the change illustrated in my sandbox to fix it. Thanks. Anomie 17:13, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

I think this is   Done. It seems to be working fine. If not drop me a message on my talkpage. ---J.S (T/C/WRE) 22:20, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Looks good, thanks. Anomie 02:28, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Featured listEdit

{{editprotected}} WikiProject Illinois needs to add Featured List capability to this template so that Talk:Chicago Bears seasons and other featured lists will show up in their appropriate category instead of the default Category:Unassessed WikiProject Illinois articles category. Please make the following change from this sub-page sandbox. Thank you. --Dual Freq (talk) 23:00, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Done. If there's any problems, drop me a line on my talkpage. SkierRMH (talk) 06:01, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Category:Illinois articles needing imagesEdit

{{editprotected}} I created Category:Illinois articles needing images on 12 April 2008 and added it to the template. As brought out in this dicsussion, Category:Illinois articles needing images is redundant of Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Illinois. Please copy the code from here and paste it over all the code in the template. After this change, the template will no longer populate Category:Illinois articles needing images.

Done. --- RockMFR 15:52, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Additions and correctionsEdit

{{editprotected}} In: NOTE_3_CAT = Category:WikiProject Illinois past selected articles the word Category: needs to be removed, so that it is just: NOTE_3_CAT = WikiProject Illinois past selected articles (vertical bar nds to be added back). Also, could you add the portal name and image to this template, so it will show the navflag, like the Chicago WikiProject, like: PORTAL = Illinois and PORTAL_IMG = Flag of Illinois.svg Thanks --Funandtrvl (talk) 05:40, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

  Done Ruslik (talk) 09:36, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

update portal imageEdit

{{edit protected}} Since we don't have to duplicate the 2 images and the flag is hard to see on the portal link, could you update the image to:

|PORTAL_IMG = IL-icon.png

Thanks! --Funandtrvl (talk) 18:54, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

  Done --CapitalR (talk) 19:33, 13 March 2009 (UTC)


{{edit protected}}

Since the "Main Cat" has 22,000+ articles in it and is too largely populated with articles that are already in the quality and importance categories; it would be put to better use as a subcategory for articles needing attention, etc., so please remove "Main Cat" from the template. Thanks. --Funandtrvl (talk) 05:37, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
Done that. Also had a general tidy up and removed the collaboration and selected pictures stuff which doesn't seem to have been used since 2007. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 06:19, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks again for cleaning it up! --Funandtrvl (talk) 19:54, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Edit requestEdit

Could someone please adjust the banner so that Category:Automatically assessed Illinois articles is not required, which will remove the error from the template page? Thanks! Kumioko (talk) 19:04, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

  Done --Redrose64 (talk) 20:10, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 25 May 2019Edit

Because the WikiProject is now inactive, please change the first line of code in this template from:




My test of the change is in Template:WikiProject Illinois/sandbox.

Thanks! UnitedStatesian (talk) 19:17, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

On what basis is it inactive? --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:46, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
The WikiProject is tagged as inactive (see Wikipedia:WikiProject Illinois), since October 2018. UnitedStatesian (talk) 11:24, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
OK,   Done --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 18:32, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
This project is semi-active, why was this template marked as inactive?? There are other projects out there that are less active than Illinois'. This is not an inactive project. Please reverse this edit. Funandtrvl (talk) 17:34, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
