Add new requests for a new template or updates to existing templates to the bottom of this page. Please be clear about what the template is used for, roughly what it should look like, and which articles it should link to, if any.

For requests regarding stub templates, go to Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals.

YouTube subscriber count[edit]

Would be good to have a template that displays the live YouTube channel subscriber count of a given channel. An example template is the Rotten tomatoes score template, which gives the current Rotten tomatoes score for any given film. The way I thought the template could be done is like this: {{YouTube subscriber count|Parameter 1|Paramter 2}}

  • Parameter 1: Channel ID
  • Parameter 2: What kind of information is displayed.

For Parameter 2 examples could include:

  • Full subscriber count (e.g. 35,212,334)
  • Subscribers rounded down to millions (e.g. 35 million)
  • Crawl date (e.g. May 2015)
  • Subscriber count in a sentence (e.g. The YouTube channel PewPiePie has 35 million subsribers as of May 2015.)

I think these parameters are necessary to build sentences including names, prepositions etc.. for example in the article for Kassem G the intro says:
"As of May 2014 Gharaibeh has more than 2.6 million YouTube subscribers, [...], KassemGtwo maintains more than a half million subscribers."

With the help of the templates this could look something like this:
"As of {{YouTube subscriber count|KassemG|crawl_date}} Gharaibeh has more than {{YouTube subscriber count|KassemG|subscribers_in_millions}} YouTube subscribers, KassemGtwo maintains moren than {{YouTube subscriber count|KassemGtwo|full_subsriber_count}} subscribers."

A bot (for example for the Rotten tomatoes template it's Theo's Little Bot (Task 22)) could then update the subsriber count maybe once or twice a month, or more often if needed.

I'm happy about any answers, I'd do it myself, but I have absolutely no idea how.

Coat of arms in infoboxes[edit]

I request for a template that would show a person's coat of arms, similar to this French wiki template: fr:Modèle:Infobox Personnalité militaire. It would be best if the option could be added to existing templates, such as the English equivalent: Template:Infobox military person, as well as Template:Infobox royalty. This option is already present in Template:Infobox Christian leader. Reigen (talk) 11:24, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Keep section on the same page for PDF printout[edit]

How difficult would it be to construct a template that keeps lines together on the same page when the document is printed out? It would accompany your {{Page break}} template. To see why I want it, look at Wikiversity:Quizbank and Wikiversity:OpenStax College.--Guy vandegrift (talk) 03:23, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Wait a minute! Just after making the request it occurred to me that writing in html might do the trick:
<div style="page-break-inside:avoid;">
# This line
# ... and this line
# ... and this line
#... as well as this line always print together. 
</div>

I tested it on Wikiversity and it seems to worrk. Is it this easy??--Guy vandegrift (talk) 03:49, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Requesting Assistance Building a template related to Requested Moves[edit]

There is an ongoing discussion at Wikipedia_talk:Requested_moves#Increasing_participation_in_RM_discussions concerning notification of Wikiprojects when Requested Moves are initiated. The proposed language in the guideline would require a simple template for requesters to place on appropriate project talk page(s). I proposed a template something like: {{subst:RM initiated|article name|new name|discussion link}}. The template when placed on the project talk page would render something like this: A requested move discussion has been initiated for article to change the title to new name. Members of this WikiProject are invited to participate. Discussion Link.

Would appreciate any help in getting this into a prototype template before going forward with the guideline changes. Thanks. --Mike Cline (talk) 12:09, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

  • @Mike Cline: Feel free to build it off a template I worked on a while back: Template:RMNote. I created this template, but never added it to the instructions. Steel1943 (talk) 13:33, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks @Steel1943: - I'll give it a shot but my ask for a review once I get it to a testing point.--Mike Cline (talk) 14:08, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
See also Template:RM notification. I think I might be able to enhance RMCD bot to place such messages. Wbm1058 (talk) 17:39, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
