Does this really need a <br> tag inside the <div>? It seems to make an awfully big dead space above it. --Phil | Talk 08:11, Oct 19, 2004 (UTC)


When I edited this it still said WARNING: This page has been locked so that only administrators can edit it. which is not quite true... pfctdayelise 21:59, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

According to the protection log, the protection level was modified earlier today. It was changed to only block new and unregistered users. --TheParanoidOne 22:37, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
Yes, I know, since I am not an admin, and I requested the unprotection. :P But the warning message is not accurate. I don't know where that comes from so perhaps this is actually a problem on all semi-protected pages? pfctdayelise 23:02, 20 January 2006 (UTC)


I saw some stubs with a parameter, and realized that could be used as a sortkey for the categories. Of course this would require changing all the other biological stub types. The appropriate section would be changed to
[[Category:People stubs<includeonly>{{#if:{{{1|}}}|{{!}}{{{1}}}|}}</includeonly><noinclude>| </noinclude>]] [[Category:Stub categories]] (for some reason using &#124 didn't work).
(I'm sure there's a better place for this, let me try to figure out where.) TimBentley (talk) 02:25, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
