Size of template[edit]

This template is huge and cluttery, and should be trimmed massively. See discussion here. - (), 09:56, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

I would like to see it trimmed more. The two bottom sections are really quite unnecessary. -- Evertype· 17:08, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
Mal, your suggestion that I vandalized the template is quite inappropriate. I edited the bloated template in good faith. The edited version is superior to the one you prefer. -- Evertype· 08:42, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
Evertype, when you edited it there were a few mistakes. I saw this just as the bot was about to start work on the NI Project and reverted it as quickly as I could. Unfortunately I was too late, and all 1,080 article assessements were removed from the project due to the edits you had made. The quickest way I saw to revert was by the "rollback vandal" option on my page. I tried to make a null edit afterwards to put an edit comment in telling people to ignore the previous suggestions of vandalism, but it didn't work out. Anyway, basically I clicked on "rollback vandal" out of panic and my intentions weren't to label you as a vandal in this case. Please accept my apologies.
I'm not at home at the minute, and my time on Wikipedia is limited. But I will be looking at the template soon to see what can be done about trimming it a wee bit. I'm not saying I will definately trim it, but I will look at options and see if I feel it can be done in a way whihc will satiate both your concerns of clutter, and the concerns of the project. --Mal 11:15, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
If it is any bigger than the Ireland Project or the Writing Systems Project, it is too big. Please take this into consideration. And look again at the Ogham talk page. Ta. -- Evertype· 14:32, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
There is no policy regarding the size of WikiProject templates that I am aware of. Nor is there any reason to assume that the NI WP template should be any smaller than any other specific templates. I have said I will look at it later, when I have time. Please have some patience. --Mal 15:19, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

Strange bug[edit]

The second "comments here" does not seem to work at Talk:Northern Ireland or any other page with a space in its title. --Henrygb 21:26, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. I've fixed this now, though the 'article grading' section may be a candidate for pruning due to complaints about this template's size (see discussion above). --Mal 19:32, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Obsolete code[edit]

It would be very helpful to convert this to Template:WPBannerMeta code. — SMcCandlish [talk] [cont] ‹(-¿-)› 21:33, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

There's now a WPBannerMeta version in the sandbox. Does it look ok? -- WOSlinker (talk) 07:57, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Now implemented. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 18:59, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
