Why, hello! It seems we've now welcomed each other to our respective wikis-of-origin. Nice! (I don't often sign in to WP, but I'm citing manita.) -sche (talk) 19:45, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Team Barnstar Hires.png The Teamwork Barnstar
This barnstar is awarded in recognition of your contributions to building the evidence base for the Chelsea Manning move. Well done! Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 06:11, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, for the barnstar and for your own hard work (which was more substantial than mine) to set up the RM. :) -sche (talk) 18:03, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

wording[edit]

That wording is a bit clumsy. What if we presented it as a summary or in some other way then presenting it as a direct quote? Sportfan5000 (talk) 21:13, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Personally, I think the wording is fine. But more importantly, the disputes over MOS-TW/MOS-TM made it clear that a sizeable number of people will find fault with any template that paraphrases the MOS, and will argue that it leaves something important out, or states something the MOS doesn't, and that the template should therefore be deleted. That's why MOS-TRANS quotes the MOS verbatim; it's one of its raisons d'être, IMO. (The other raison d'être for it is that a single template can't fall out of sync with itself the way a pair of templates can.)
If you do feel that the wording of the MOS is clumsy, though, then as I suggested in my edit summary, the thing to do is to make a post on WT:MOS and change the wording of WP:MOS itself, not to change quotations of it. -sche (talk) 21:47, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
Well I'm not sure I want to deal with month-long processes but I'll raise it once the TfD is done and see if there is consensus to not quote directly. Long-term it may make sense to help copy-edit what MOS has, which is unfortunately ironic as usually the writing on MOS is much better than average. Sportfan5000 (talk) 08:10, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Template:MOS-TRANS[edit]

Now that there has been some distance do you think we should look to combining the other templates into Template:MOS-TRANS, with parameters? Sportfan5000 (talk) 23:15, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

That sounds like a good idea. I am not sure what venue it would be best to propose the merger in; perhaps just one of the templates' talk pages (linked-to from the other templates' talk pages) — or does Wikipedia have a dedicated forum for template merger requests? One thing I anticipate may come up in any merger discussion is the question of whether the end-result template should retain NOTAFORUM as an intrinsic part of it (as in MOSTRANS), or apply it separately (as pages that use MOS-TW and MOS-TM do). -sche (talk) 21:47, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
I think we should just try to make the template as best as we see fit, then post for comments on the two templates that would be merged into it. That way any basic issues could be worked on until a formal merger happens. I keep seeing Intersex people's biographies so i think we might want a parameter just for them as well, perhaps with a link to where to ask for help as there is the Medical project, as well as the LGBT one.
