List-class articlesEdit

There is no automatic category for List-class politics articles, maybe this should be fixed... - Ilse@ 15:12, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Bug reportsEdit

There are a couple of bug reports in a template that transcludes this one, that look relevant. Template talk:WikiProject Political parties. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 18:43, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

No importance code for task force articlesEdit

moved from Template talk:WikiProject Political parties and followed up here

(The task force template) also fails for apparently correct importance=low. The categorization is correct, but the presentation omits the importance. See for example: [1] --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 18:31, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

@Hroðulf: It was removed at 15:51, 19 February 2015. You should ask Jj98 (talk · contribs), who made that edit, why they "don't care". --Redrose64 (talk) 08:25, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

@Jj98: Does the removal of this parameter affect Wikipedia 1.0 ? Please either restore the importance code to the template, or update the wikiproject and template documentation, and post a bulletin at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Politics. The relevant documentation pages I checked before I reported this as a bug are at:

Template-protected edit request on 11 April 2018Edit

Add Gun politics task force. Proposed version can be seen at Template:WikiProject_Politics/sandbox. –dlthewave 14:47, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

  Not done for now: too much regression would result. Please base your changes on the current template, not one that is three years old. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 18:12, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
@Redrose64: I've updated the sandbox version with the current template, could you take a look at it again? This is my first template edit so any guidance would be appreciate. Thanks –dlthewave 01:30, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
OK,   Done --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 18:35, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

Task force deprecationEdit

According to this edit by Mr. Guye (talk · contribs), four of the task forces are defunct, hence the associated parameters are deprecated. Is there a proposal anywhere to remove these parameters from the template proper? --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 07:22, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

@Redrose64 and Mr. Guye: I just made some changes to the template sandbox on this matter. It would seek to put the defunct task forces into the note section instead of side-by-side with the active ones. Would there be any objection to this change? –MJLTalk 21:07, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 4 July 2019Edit

There has been no objection to this change, so I'm going to assume that it's fine. Please, Copy and Paste code found at {{WikiProject Politics/sandbox}}. Cheers, –MJLTalk 02:53, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

nvm. Let me make some changes. –MJLTalk 03:03, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 11 March 2020Edit

Please sync with Sandbox. I've re-ordered the task forces and added a new WikiProject which has merged with WP:POLITICSMJLTalk 15:06, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

MJL, is there any particular reason for the rearrange, or is it just a convenient side effect of adding the new task force? What is the new order, and how is it different from the old? Primefac (talk) 17:48, 11 March 2020 (UTC) (please ping on reply)
@Primefac: I moved the inactive/defunct task forces to the bottom of the list (see above; this was easier than what I said I was going to do). –MJLTalk 19:31, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
  Done Primefac (talk) 00:29, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 18 December 2020Edit

Add alias for {{{American|}}} and {{{American-importance|}}} to support {{{American|{{{american|}}}}}} and {{{American-importance|{{{american-importance|}}}}}} –MJLTalk 19:16, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

To MJL:   done, and thank you very much! P.I. Ellsworth  ed. put'r there 16:42, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
