{{editprotected}} Please replace butterfly image with identical duplicate File:Morpho menelaus.png. Thnx. Lycaon (talk) 08:33, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

This template appears to have more parameters than are documented here. __meco (talk) 08:12, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Photo requestsEdit

{{Editprotected}} This template should allow |needs-photo=yes, with a corresponding Lepidoptera photo requests category to be a subcat of Category:Wikipedia requested photographs of insecta. Can it be unprotected or someone else make the necessary changes (see related templates for examples)? Richard001 (talk) 08:34, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

I've added the parameter as requested. Could you please create Category:Wikipedia requested photographs of lepidoptera? I also removed some other parameters which didn't seem to be used, i.e. attention, needs-infobox and auto. Let me know if you want them adding back in. I also moved it to the more standard place for wikiproject banners, although the previous title will still work. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 09:44, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

category classEdit

{{editprotected}} Can some enable the category class assessment? Right now all the pages tagged as |class=cat go in Category:NA-Class Lepidoptera articles. I think you do this by changing |QUALITY_SCALE=yes to |QUALITY_SCALE=extended. Or should I add something like {{class mask|{{{class|}}}|topic=Lepidoptera|category=yes}} to Template:WikiProject Lepidoptera/class? Rocket000 (talk) 15:57, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

  Done. Incase you wanted to know it required creating this and tweaking this. It may take a while to update the category, because cache needs updating first. You can prove it works on individual cases with WP:Null edits though. Rambo's Revenge (talk) 17:19, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
Ok, thanks! Rocket000 (talk) 20:15, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Change photo requests to image requestsEdit

As part of a nearly-completed shift to distinguish requests for photos from requests for images in general, it is requested that this template be modified to place talk pages in "Wikipedia requested images of..." categories, rather than the old "Wikipedia requested photographs of..." categories. As such, please supplement all references to "photo(s) of..." and "photograph(s) of..." with "image(s) of..." in both the template and its documentation, while maintaining backwards compatibility for the old "photo" parameters. In particular, change "photograph or picture" to simply "image". Note that the "Wikipedia requested images of..." categories have already been created. Thank you! — s w p b T 18:55, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 21 September 2018 Wikipedia requested images of lepidopterans‎Edit

Please change the code:

|note 1={{{needs-photo|}}}
 |NOTE_1_IMAGE       = Crystal Clear app lphoto.png
 |NOTE_1_TEXT        = This {{pagetype|{{{class|}}}}} has been marked as needing a photograph.
 |NOTE_1_CAT         = Wikipedia requested photographs of lepidopterans

To read:

|note 1={{{needs-photo|{{{needs-image|{{{image-needed|{{{photo-needed|}}}}}}}}}}}}
 |NOTE_1_IMAGE       = Crystal Clear app lphoto.png
 |NOTE_1_TEXT        = This {{pagetype|{{{class|}}}}} has been marked as needing an image.
 |NOTE_1_CAT         = Wikipedia requested images of lepidopterans‎

so that any of


populate the image request category, as other WikiProjects have moved from 'photograph' categories to 'image' categories. Nessie (talk) 18:33, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
