Can someone please fix Template:Brainstorming so that {{Template:Brainstorming|policy}} doesn't display "policy" as a shortcut? Should be easy for someone with experience. {{Template:Brainstorming|WP:MyShortcut}} and {{Template:Brainstorming|policy|WP:MyShortcut}} still need to work though. Thanks. –Novem Linguae (talk) 20:37, 24 October 2022 (UTC)

Nice solution. Thanks for the help :) –Novem Linguae (talk) 21:34, 24 October 2022 (UTC)
Well, it's at least a solution. A "nice" solution probably wouldn't have the second conditional testing for additional parameters, but I tried a bunch of different possibilities and couldn't work out a logic flow that didn't either bloat the code in even worse and confusing ways, or throw up errors on {{ombox/shortcut}} when using "policy" without an explicit shortcut.

could someone make the snazz line template from department of fun functional? Allaoii (talk) 20:46, 24 October 2022 (UTC)

CoordDec units for dimEdit

The "dim" parameter of the CoordDec template should explain what units to use when entered via the Visual Editor, i.e. "viewing diameter in metres" (like Coord). Others may also need this clarity around units. Thanks! ★NealMcB★ (talk) 18:51, 29 October 2022 (UTC)

  • I've added "(in meters)" to the description for that parameter. VanIsaac, GHTV contWpWS 19:45, 29 October 2022 (UTC)

Template for "No known rights" by the Danish National MuseumEdit

The Danish National Museum ("Natmuseet") has many pictures in their collections with the "No known restrictions" license, and they even hyperlink to a Commons page about the "No known restrictions" (example). Could anyone make a template, similar to this one for the Library of Congress? Thanks!! :) 𝙨𝙥𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙧-𝙬𝙞𝙣𝙚-𝙗𝙤𝙩𝙩𝙡𝙚(🕷) - (✉) 17:39, 6 November 2022 (UTC)

Template:Technical redirectEdit

For technical reasons, ':)' redirects to ')', another redirect. The template would be:

Yeilding on the specified page, the template would be:
{{technical redirect|)|:)|typographical portrayals of faces|Emoticon}} Faster than Thunder (talk | contributions) 20:43, 14 November 2022 (UTC)

@Faster than Thunder How about editing {{Technical reasons}} so you can write {{Technical reasons|:)|typographical portrayals of faces|Emoticon}} to get "For technical reasons, ":)" redirects to ")". For typographical portrayals of faces, see Emoticon." If this sounds like a good solution I could do so. --Trialpears (talk) 22:58, 14 November 2022 (UTC)
We can discuss it on Template talk:Technical reasons. Faster than Thunder (talk | contributions) 05:45, 16 November 2022 (UTC)

Template for catalan onomastics referenceEdit


I created a template for the Catalan wiktionary, and I tried to do the same for the English wiktionary, but it seems that it requires some approval or special procedure. I don't know if this is the proper place to request it.

Basically, there is a huge work called Onomasticon Cataloniae from Joan Coromines about Catalan names (both toponymy and anthroponymy) and currently it is indexed and available online, so it is a massive reference work to link with. It is available at Onomasticon Cataloniae on IEC

The intent is to have the template available for creating reference entries in the English wiktionary definitions for most Catalan names.

I tried to create the template R:OnCat by myself, but it was rejected:

The content is:

[{{urlencode:{{{1|{{PAGENAME}}}}}}} “{{{1|{{PAGENAME}}}}}”] in ''[[w:Onomasticon Cataloniae|Onomasticon Cataloniae]]'' from [[w:Joan Coromines|Joan Coromines]].<noinclude>{{documentation}}</noinclude>

The documentation page is already created (I started with it).

The Joan Coromines page already existed. The Onomasticon Cataloniae page is still missing; I plan to write it.

Template for - Canada T20I cricket captainsEdit

Most of the nations have a template for their T20I Cricket captains and Canada doesn't. I would like to request for that template to be made.

@Apnagm: Hi. Can you please provide an example of that type of template for other nations? Thanks. Jeeputer Talk 04:50, 30 November 2022 (UTC)

Hi! I would like to request a simple "Template:Taxonomy/Enhydrini" page to be used for the Enhydritherium, Enhydra, and sea otter pages, since they are generally classified under the "Enhydrini" tribe.

Source: Revision of the Mio-Pliocene bunodont otter-likemammals of the Indian Subcontinent.

Here's the standard taxonomy template for page usage:

ERROR: no taxon supplied

Not sure why you're here? Get started with the automated taxobox system.

Parent: Lutrinae [Taxonomy; edit]
Rank: tribus (displays as Tribe)
Link: Lutrinae|Enhydrini(links to Lutrinae)
Extinct: no
Always displayed: no
Taxonomic references:
Parent's taxonomic references:

Please let me know if my request for a new biological tribe page is accepted or not. Thanks, and have a nice day! PrimalMustelid (talk) 20:50, 26 November 2022 (UTC)
