Template talk:Single infobox request

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This seems to fairly clearly be a template directed at editors, rather than readers. As such it should go on the talk page. I have reformatted the template to the talk page standard, and begun moving it. - SimonP 15:45, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

{{editprotected}} Could it be included on the template that it should go on talk pages? I find it often still placed on the actual article page. Garion96 (talk) 12:52, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

The code to fulfil this request is {{check talk}}. --ais523 16:33, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
Done. Proto:: 19:03, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
And again thanks, Garion96 (talk) 19:38, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Generic infobox[edit]

Is there a generic infobox request template available (i.e. an equivalent to {{reqphoto}}?) --Aarktica 19:27, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

  • There appears to be a template which fits the bill — {{infoboxneeded}}. --Aarktica 19:43, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Move to {{ambox}}[edit]

{{editprotected}}

Could the page please be edited to:

{{check talk}} {{ambox |type=style |image=[[Image:Nuvola mimetypes cdbo list.png|50px]] |text=A [[Wikipedia:WikiProject_Songs#Infobox|Song Infobox]] has been requested for this article. Please format it according to [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Songs|the guidelines]]. }}<includeonly>{{{category|[[Category:Articles in need of Song Infoboxes|{{PAGENAME}}]]}}}</includeonly><noinclude> ---- This template places the article in [[:Category:Articles in need of Song Infoboxes]]. </noinclude>

Thanks. — Coren (talk) 18:47, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Done, Garion96 (talk) 19:55, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. — Coren (talk) 20:02, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
Um... why was this done? This template goes on talk pages. Should of been left brown. - Rocket000 00:49, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Hmm. Error? I don't mind a revert; this stems from a misuderstanding about which list of templates to modify to use— although I've got the feeling the talk space boxes will eventually be revisited (but perhaps not with the same color/style scheme). — Coren (talk) 01:28, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
In my defense, however, there was no indication that this template was talk-space only. — Coren (talk) 01:28, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
That it used the formally selected talk page template scheme and contained the code "messagebox standard-talk" were fairly good indications. —David Levy 01:59, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
It's ok, Coren. If the talk namespace (or any other namespace) templates get a make-over (they're already standardize somewhat with the color scheme) I hope something totally different from {{ambox}} is used , so it's obvious where to place the template based on just how it looks. - Rocket000 05:59, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Template placement vs. article placement (as in a category)[edit]

I was wondering if it was at all possible to make this template, when placed on a talk page, put the article itself (not the talk page) into Category:Articles in need of Song Infoboxes.

If not then where it says "This template places the article in Category:Articles in need of Song Infoboxes." it should say "This template places the article's talk page in Category:Articles in need of Song Infoboxes." - Rocket000 06:15, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Req: Fix confusing wording[edit]

{{editprotected}}

There is an {{Infobox Single}} and an {{Infobox Song}}, which this template confuses. Please change:

A Song Infobox has been requested for this article. Please format it according to the guidelines.

to:

An {{Infobox Single}}, {{Infobox Song}} or {{Infobox Standard}} has been requested for this article. Please format it according to the guidelines.

--PEJL 19:41, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

I've changed the request to add , {{Infobox Song}} or {{Infobox Standard}}, because the template is currently used for lots of non-single songs. It is misnamed for that purpose, but this is at least an improvement. --PEJL 07:46, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
I made the change, with slightly different wording. I also fixed the table syntax while I was there. — Carl (CBM · talk) 01:27, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Convert to tmbox[edit]

{{editprotected}} Could the page be converted to use tmbox?

{{check talk}}
{{tmbox
| type      = notice
| image     = [[Image:Nuvola mimetypes cdbo list.png|50px]]
| text      = An {{tl|Infobox Single}}, {{tl|Infobox Song}} or {{tl|Infobox Standard}} has been requested for this article.
Please select the appropriate infobox and format it according to [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Songs|the guidelines]].

Song articles with infoboxes tagged with SIR[edit]

How can one find out what articles have had infoboxes added to them but still have the Single infobox request tag on its talk page? I'm sure some are for an additional infobox for a notable cover version of the song or the like, but many of those requests can be removed and I sure don't want to go through the list one by one. It would be a big help to narrow it down and know exactly which ones to look at and pare down the number of articles in this category. Thanks. --Wolfer68 (talk) 09:56, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Edit request on 15 October 2012[edit]

change

[[Category:Song articles without infoboxes|{{PAGENAME}}]]

to

{{#ifeq:{{lc:{{{category|}}}}}|no||{{Talk other|[[Category:Song articles without infoboxes|{{PAGENAME}}]]|<!-- Don't categorize when not in talk space. -->}}}}

which will remove the non-talk pages from the tracking category per the method used by Template:Infobox requested. Frietjes (talk) 17:09, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Done, thanks for the request. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 12:22, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
