Category inclusion -- inquiry[edit]

Hey, M, I see a few of your subpages listed at [1]. I am trying to reduce the backlog. Well, I am wondering if your subpages should be listed in the category. Is there a way to remove the pages from the listing? Thanks. – S. Rich (talk) 06:49, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

@User:Srich32977 The subpages are for this Request Edit Wizard, which allows someone to fill out a form and generate a Request Edit, among other things. The subpages are preloaded pages that determine what is generated when someone fills out the form, hence the Request Edit template. I'm just not sure how to include the Request Edit code in them, but exempt them from the category.
Looks like you got it down to 56!! Great work! Some of those are months old. I also de-activated an old one of mine that was never closed out. The one at Yelp is still live. User:Sphilbrick and I have both gotten kinda worn out on them and it's great to see a fresh face working on the queue. CorporateM (Talk) 12:13, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Here. Can you post this on the subpages instead of the actual template link? Thanks. – S. Rich (talk) 02:06, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Say, CorporateM. How about if I put the image above into your subpages? They will have the same appearance. By taking the template out the subpages will be removed from Category:Requested edits. Thanks. – S. Rich (talk) 23:10, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
The best place to bring it up might be here. The thing is, if you disable it from showing up in the Request Edit category, anyone that uses the wizard will also create Request Edits that do not show up in the category. That being said, though a handful of people have signed up as participants here nobody has taken the initiative to finish it up and move the wizard into project space, so it may not be a problem for it to be dysfunctional if no one has an interest in using it.

I guess I don't know enough about Wizards or subpages to offer a solution. If it is your userspace subpage, then it seems that it should not spill out into categories. And if I read correctly, WP:UPNO & WP:USERNOCAT talk about templates that automatically cause categorization, which these seem to do. Perhaps you can you use the {{tlx|.....}} or something else to prevent this. – S. Rich (talk) 22:44, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

I've pinged User:Hasteur on their Talk page to see if they know how to fix it. Alternatively please feel free to remove them and/or wait to see if I can fix it so the wizard still works. CorporateM (Talk) 23:28, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

@S. Rich I haven't heard back, so I just removed the templates for now. Hopefully at some point someone will fix it. For now, the wizard is in draft space so it being broken shouldn't be a problem. CorporateM (Talk) 14:57, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
