Move proposal[edit]

  • Move to "Template:Chinatowns". Badagnani 04:53, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Done. Badagnani 04:26, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Edit[edit]

Can this undiscussed/uncommented edit please be explained? Many thanks, Badagnani (talk) 23:48, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

India and Japan both used "group9" and "list9", and conflicted. Therefore, I corrected it and made easily to notice for the same problem not to happen. thanks, --Morio (talk) 23:59, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

That's very confusing. I'm glad you understand the coding better than I do. Badagnani (talk) 00:18, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Template needs to be in the individual articles[edit]

The template needs to be actually placed into the individual articles linked in the template. Badagnani (talk) 04:08, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Vietnam[edit]

I noticed that Vietnam's Chinatown doesn't show up in the template. If you try to edit the template, you'll see that the codes are there. I tried adding in Mexico's Chinatowns, but whenever I preview the template it pushes the U.S. out. I'm guessing the template caps the number of groupings/lists at 20? I'm just speculating since Vietnam is #21. I refrained from editing it since I didn't really want to push anything off the template. Moretti80 (talk) 01:22, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Too many groups[edit]

When I clicked to view this template, the height was too tall, and there was too much empty space. There are over 20 countries listed here, but most of them have only one or two Chinatowns, making it unneccessary to have a separate group for each. Also, some of the links were just to general articles, not articles about the actual Chinatowns. If a Chinatown does not have an article on Wikipedia, it should be listed in the List of Chinatowns but not this template. Heroeswithmetaphors (talk) 16:08, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Request[edit]

I am from Czech from Ostrava repupliky feelings so the following text is translated by Google Translate: I suggest that all the links that link to this template should figure. --89.102.215.74 (talk) 14:09, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry I do not know what you mean, or what you are asking. If you mean links should figure in the template, that is they should be added to the template, then please add them. If you make a mistake don't worry as it can be easily corrected. If you are not sure how to do so post the link here and someone else can add it. And I've added a heading to this section as an empty one made no sense.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 14:16, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

I do not think so that some articles have links to pictures would be appropriate to place those articles Chinatown. --89.102.215.74 (talk) 14:27, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Do you think some articles should be removed? Which ones?--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 15:09, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Not all articles have these pictures and articles which images should be added (pictures). --89.102.215.74 (talk) 11:44, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

I do not understand. None of the articles need pictures, which may or may not exist.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 12:23, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

No articles have pictures with, but not all articles about Chinatowns have them. --89.102.215.74 (talk) 13:21, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

Again, there is no requirement for articles to have pictures: pictures are mostly decorative and so are entirely optional in most articles.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 15:53, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
