Please amend the way this template categorises articles[edit]

At the moment it is placing talk pages in categories where they have no business to be. Please fix this. On a broader issue, making the template so complex that other people can't edit it (and indeed telling them not to) is hardly in the spirit that anyone can edit wikipedia. Wikipedia is for everyone, not for computer programmers, and features that work against that are unwelcome. In my opinion the "damage" has already been done when this category was given inappropriate features. LukeHoC 19:09, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure that it is placing talk pages into incorrect categories. Do you have an example? As for the esoteric syntax, that is standard for WikiProject banners. I don't know of a way to make the template do what it needs to do without making the code complex. Jwillbur 22:22, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

{{editprotected}} This template categorises some articles within the project Netherlands. While this may or may not be ok for the Netherlands Antilles to some level (ie these Caribbean island are part of the kingdom of the Netherlands), the Netherlands project does not use importance levels. Hence this template should under no condition place any article in a WP:Netherlands importance category. It messes up the WP:Netherlands project stats. See the table in: Wikipedia:WikiProject Netherlands. Can someone please change this either by removing any automatic placement within the Netherlands project, or by making sure it does not carry over importance levels. Thanks Arnoutf (talk) 21:03, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Done, sounds fine to me. All appears kosher. --lifebaka (talk - contribs) 22:19, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, the problem is gone (and will be gone from the table as soon as the bot rebuilds the table in a few days). Arnoutf (talk) 20:49, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Bad categories[edit]

{{editprotected}} Several things:

  • Change "Category:Unassessed-Class Jamaica articles" to "Category:Unassessed Jamaica articles"? The first does not exist, the second does.
  • Remove "[[Category:WikiProject Puerto Rico articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]", since WP Puerto Rico does not use a parent category for all its articles (see Category:WikiProject Puerto Rico)
  • Shouldn't there be a <noinclude>{{Pp-template}}</noinclude> at the top, to let people know that it is protected and why?

Thanks. — jwillbur 18:52, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Done. --- RockMFR 22:42, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Thank you. — jwillbur 01:43, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Aruba and C-class[edit]

{{editprotected}} When an article uses the parameters class=C and Aruba=yes, the article's talk page appears in Category:Unassessed Aruba articles and Category:Unassessed Netherlands articles instead of Category:C-Class Aruba articles and Category:C-Class Netherlands articles. – Ilse@ 21:31, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Declining, since this sounds more like a bug report than an edit request. If anyone can figure out the exact changes needed to fix the bug though, please re-submit.  :) Thanks, --Elonka 23:11, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
It seems that C-class was only partially implemented. Can someone please make the following changes?
In the section that begins "<!-- WikiProject Bermuda-->", add this line:
|C|c=[[Category:C-Class Bermuda articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
below the B class line (begins with " |B|b="). Do the same (add them to the appropriate country's section) for the lines listed below:
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Cuba articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Dominica articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Dominican Republic articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Haiti articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Puerto Rico articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Trinidad and Tobago articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Anguilla articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class United Kingdom articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Aruba articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class Netherlands articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class British Virgin Islands articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class United Kingdom articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Cayman Islands articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class United Kingdom articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Guadeloupe articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class France articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Martinique articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class France articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Montserrat articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class United Kingdom articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Netherlands Antilles articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class Netherlands articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Saint Barthelemy articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class France articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Saint Martin articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class France articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Saint Pierre and Miquelon articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class France articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class Turks and Caicos Islands articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class United Kingdom articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • |C|c=[[Category:C-Class United States Virgin Islands articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class United States articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
And replace this line:
|C|c=[[Category:B-Class Saint Vincent and the Grenadines articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:B-Class Commonwealth realms articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
with this one (typo fix):
|C|c=[[Category:C-Class Saint Vincent and the Grenadines articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class Commonwealth realms articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
Thanks. — jwillbur 23:57, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
Done! Thanks for the detailed request. :) --Elonka 05:42, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for your efforts. I believe the bug is not fixed for Aruba. Could this line be added:
|C|c=[[Category:C-Class Aruba articles|{{PAGENAME}}]][[Category:C-Class Netherlands articles|{{PAGENAME}}]]
Thanks again, Ilse@ 13:16, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Cheers. --MZMcBride (talk) 17:48, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Saint Pierre and Miquelon[edit]

So why are Saint Pierre and Miquelon part of this template? I'm confused. --Arctic Gnome (talkcontribs) 05:23, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

add image to portal link[edit]

{{editprotected}} Would you please add this nice image to the portal link in the template? It looks so much better than the default icon and it is a featured image on the portal. Thanks! {{portal|Caribbean|Playa de Cayo Levantado.jpg}} --Funandtrvl (talk) 20:45, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Much nicer. Yes check.svg Done. Martinmsgj 21:07, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! --Funandtrvl (talk) 21:56, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Category change[edit]

{{editprotected}} Could Category:Unassessed-Class France articles be changed to Category:Unassessed France articles in the banner as that's what {{WikiProject France}} now uses. (It needs doing in 5 places though). Thanks. -- WOSlinker (talk) 21:35, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 22:17, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Underneath (quote) "|MAIN_CAT = Latin America articles" (/end quote) That should be changed to " Cat:Caribbean articles " since it isn't likely these articles are going to be cleaned up under Latin America which is a separate Wikiproject. not to mention "Cat:Latin America" has over 33,000 articles in it it is large enough to be split.

bump... 71.124.254.127 (talk) 23:27, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

2 updates[edit]

{{edit protected}} Hi- Could someone add the "pagetype" switch into the Main Text field? Also, in the nested field for U.S.V.I., could you update it to "U.S. Virgin Islands", using periods in "U.S."? (i.e., it's usually "U.S." and "UK", not "US" and "U.K.") Thanks --Funandtrvl (talk) 17:06, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 18:53, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Much better, thanks! --Funandtrvl (talk) 19:08, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 4 September 2014[edit]

I would like the template admins to amend |TF_8_MAIN_CAT=Haiti articles to |TF_8_MAIN_CAT=WikiProject Haiti articles, in my attempt to fully resurrect the Haiti Project. I believe such a move will enable the special attention it needs to flourish and it is better from an overall wiki perspective. Thank you kindly. Savvyjack23 (talk) 18:56, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

OK, there are presently 1,781 pages in Category:Haiti articles and 309 pages in Category:WikiProject Haiti articles. Yes check.svg Done so let's see how it changes: current counts are 0 and 4,021. --Redrose64 (talk) 23:19, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Great, thanks! Savvyjack23 (talk) 23:53, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
