Could categorization as List-class be enabled by this template? Now only articles related to Aruba and the Netherlands Antilles are sorted into Category:List-Class Netherlands articles. – Ilse@ 22:57, 2 September 2008 (UTC) {{editprotected}}

I added it to the template, using Category:List-Class Netherlands articles. — Carl (CBM · talk) 12:42, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Why full protectionEdit

Number of vandalisms on this template: 0
Current status: full protection
Me, the original creator of the template can no longer edit it.
Why??? (especially as there has never been a single vandalism). Arnoutf (talk) 15:11, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Have you checked the proetction log? This template is currently transcluded in 6872 different pages. We typically protect templates that are highly used, in agreement with Wikipedia:High-risk templates. — Carl (CBM · talk) 17:52, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Euhm yes, but I created it, made way more than 50% of all edits to it, and now am no longer allowed to edit it..... Arnoutf (talk) 21:16, 1 February 2009 (UTC)


{{editprotected}} Since this template is fully edit protected (and some higher levels of transclusion templates aren't) I can't fix this error. It is leaving a blank line after itself.

Can someone build a documentation subpage, template sandbox and testcases page for this template? (talk) 11:23, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Given the errors that this template was producing it seemed best to convert this banner to use {{WPBannerMeta}} which I have now done. I'll also create those pages as requested now. Martinmsgj 12:45, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Documentation, sandbox and testcases pages created, so the anon can edit them.
  • There are a few differences you might notice with the conversion:
    1. Link to portal included on banner.
    2. Implementation of the full quality scale, so Template-Class, etc. become available.
    3. Renaming of Non-article Netherlands pages to NA-Class Netherlands articles (just to standardise with other projects).
  • There are also lots of features available. See the documentation at the meta banner for details. Martinmsgj 12:55, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Edit ReqEdit

{{editprotected}} Could article be changed to {{pagetype|{{{class|}}}}} as per the edit in the sandbox. Thanks -- WOSlinker (talk) 08:38, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

  Done — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 09:00, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Edit RequestEdit

{{editprotected}} Could PORTAL_IMG (currently set to the very poor quality image of NL - COA.png) be replaced with this image (Coat of arms of the Netherlands.svg), as per the edit in the sandbox. Thank you. -- (talk) 00:13, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Das hab' ich gemacht.  Skomorokh, barbarian  04:05, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Addition of WikiProject Dutch municipalitiesEdit

Could anyone implement these changes I performed in the sandbox to the real template? CRwikiCA (talk) 20:27, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

  Done --Redrose64 (talk) 20:55, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

All classesEdit

Is it possible to turn the "Redirect" class on for this banner, and possibly the other class options that were not yet enabled? CRwikiCA (talk) 14:58, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Redirect is simple enough; I did this in response to Template talk:WikiProject Cities#Redirect class; at Template:WikiProject Scouting, I also switched on |class=book.
So, which additional classes are needed, specifically? WP Netherlands currently has the "extended" class list (see Template:WPBannerMeta#Assessment), just as both Cities and Scouting previously had. The full list of available classifications is given at Category:Articles by quality; therefore, eliminating those already provided by the "extended" scale, your choices can be one or more of: FM, AL, BL, Book, Bplus, CL, User, Current, Future, Merge, Needed, Redirect (no, I don't know what they all are either). --Redrose64 (talk) 15:59, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick reply, Redirect and Book should suffice for now then. I did not realize there were so many of these obscure other options. CRwikiCA (talk) 16:09, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
OK,   Done --Redrose64 (talk) 16:37, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Image updateEdit

Would it be possible to change the municipal image into the 2014 version as done in the sandbox? CRwikiCA talk 21:25, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
