Question about a few of the cases where the template puts pages into this category. I'm working on clearing the Category and while a page like User talk:Geo Swan/Guantanamo/Rick Schieke belongs in the category, I'm a little more hesitant about a page like Wikipedia talk:Article Incubator/Cassie Sumner or Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Jorge Manuel Miranda Dias. However the ones that have me really confused are ones like Talk:Nitrozac. I finally figured out that the template objects to being placed on the talk page for a redirect, Nitrozac redirects to The Joy of Tech.

I'm willing to fix all of these, but what should I use for the explanation for the changes on pages like Talk:Nitrozac?Naraht (talk) 15:09, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Auto-name sorting for listas parameter

There is a module (Module:SortName) which attempts to create a sortable name out of a page's title for use in this template's |listas= parameter. If this code were added to the doc page—{{subst:#invoke:SortName|sortname}}—then people copy/pasting the template code would get the |listas= parameter filled in automatically. From the pages on which this template is transcluded, the module looks like it would output a good sortable name on about 90–95% of the articles. You can see various outputs on the module's testcases page. The other 5–10% of articles may take a human understanding of the subject, although the module may be refined further with input from others. — Bility (talk) 22:18, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Feature brainstorm for Module:WikiProjectBanner

I'm in the early stages of developing a Lua-based replacement for {{WPBannerMeta}}, and I would appreciate peoples ideas for features. If there is anything that you have wanted to do with your WikiProject template, but haven't been able to due to limitations in the meta-template, I would be very interested to hear it. The discussion is over at Template talk:WPBannerMeta. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 12:23, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Changing the icon

Current icon
Option for a new icon

The person icon for this template has remained the same since its creation in 2006 (File:Crystal personal.svg - a faceless, peach-skinned, presumably male person in a tie). I'd like to change the icon to reflect a different skin tone, gender, or style of dress. Perhaps we can have a woman of color icon for a while. Commons has a number of other icons in Category:People_icons or a new icon could be created. Just as an example, I think the lower image on the right (File:Etno icon.png) demonstrates how this icon could be more worldly and inclusive of different genders/ethnicities.
