Using both together along with tools such as catscan and perhaps in the future bots, articles identified to be in need can be better attended to through organized collaberation. -PoptartKing 18:29, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Higher resolution image of Alma-Tadema painting[edit]

Hello, I Will use commons:Image:1868 Lawrence Alma-Tadema - Phidias Showing the Frieze of the Parthenon to his Friends.jpg instead of en:Image:Parthenon_Alma_Tadema.jpg, two differences:

  • First is in commons, second in en,
  • Commons image has higher resolution.

I tested it and it looked good, no real apparent difference but it would if the user clicks on the image. Thanks, --JuanPDP 03:56, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

broken[edit]

this template is broken, if no importance parameter is given, while a class parameter is, it doesn't work properly. It should set as default unassessed importance. 76.66.196.229 (talk) 05:37, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Documentation subage[edit]

The documenation should be moved to the /doc subpage. 76.66.196.229 (talk) 05:39, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Bad links in Template[edit]

The links to the Quality and Importance scales are invalid. The correct links should be:

  • [[Category:Classical Greece and Rome articles by quality]]
  • [[Category:Classical Greece and Rome articles by importance]]

Edit request[edit]

Please delete the "Main text" attribute from this template as its presence does not allow the message to render properly for catergories, templates, etc. Thank you  davidiad { t } 22:46, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Done; the default message is more explanatory, and has a direct link to the project talk page. As an example, the text of the banner at the top of this particular page has changed from

Please fix the Project Link[edit]

The recent edit of 2 December removed the wikilink to the project page. Please restore the project link/project talk link. A sample of what it should look like is in the section above by RedRose. -- 65.94.78.9 (talk) 19:44, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

It was fixed -- 65.94.78.9 (talk) 20:01, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
