My inappropriate template use[edit]

I have just commented on Wikipedia:Village_pump_(policy)#False ads in fundraising campaign? and asked for more info. After saving I noticed the hover text over the [who?] template says "Avoid weasel words". My sincere apologies if this causes offence. All I meant was to ask you who is working on it, in a clever, wannabe Wikipedian way! As soon as I saw it I remembered seeing something along the way in Help about "not templating the old hands", so again, my apologies. Kind regards, Bricaniwi (talk) 13:00, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

That's fine :) - I've replied on WP:VPP. Prodego talk 15:27, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Template:Close relationships[edit]

I agree with some of your comments regarding that template. Would you be willing to work with me to clean that template up, in accord with some of the other intelligent suggestions made there? -Stevertigo (w | t | e) 04:59, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your response. I haven't worked on actual templates before, which is one reason I started a discussion rather than actually trying to modify it myself right away. And I haven't done any research of sources to support my ideas - have you? Also, as you might gather by the time lag since your message, I don't have a lot of time at the moment, so discussions may be prolonged! (And by the way, I thought my profile settings meant I would be emailed if anyone left a message on my Talk page, to save me checking just in case, but I didn't get anything when you left your message. How do you get that to happen?)
But yes, let's discuss. I suggest Template_talk:Close_relationships is the place to discuss. Please add your responses there about which comments you agree with, and alternatives to the others. And, re that Talk page, I'm surprised / disappointed no one else has responded to my comments at all! Should we post a request for comment somewhere else?
