Punctuation of "reason" parameter[edit]

The "reason" parameter isn't automatically followed by a full stop, but the examples in the documentation don't account for this (i.e. a number are also missing full stops). Was the full stop removed to allow other punctuation, or does it need adding back to the template? — Sasuke Sarutobi (talk) 15:18, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Codename Lisa (talk) 16:03, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Enforcing the reason parameter[edit]

While it may be nice to require a reason parameter, the way in which it has been done has effectively borked the template. The template does not behave intuitively with a possible reason=-parameter — and neither is there any information on what should be specified. Since the changed to the template were made following 2 users discussion, with nigh on any other input I have pushed up the date until Dec 31 2016. Carl Fredik 💌 📧 22:31, 19 April 2016 (UTC) 

This was thoroughly discussed (see archive 6) and has stood since 2012. It should not be removed on the whim of one editor. Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg Reverted — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 22:47, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
But it is utterly WP:POINTY and against policy. It makes the entire template unused. There are plenty better ways to solve the issue, for example to get rid of this entirely like {{expand}}, only leaving the more adequate types. Carl Fredik 💌 📧 22:50, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
That may be your opinion, but the status quo is the result of intense discussion in past years, so any change will need consensus. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 08:20, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 22 June 2016: Modernization[edit]

This is a modernization request.

1. Add this parameter to the Template:Cleanup's {{ambox}}:

|removalnotice = yes

2. Remove this:

Please help improve this template if you can.

The #1 makes up for the absence of the #2. Fleet Command (talk) 12:16, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. This edit would replace a clear call to action (improve this article) with a less clear statement about removing the template. Ahecht (TALK

@Ahecht: I was partially responsible for the rollout of the removal notice recently. I'm inclined to add the param actually, per Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals)/Archive 131#Implementing Help:Maintenance template removal Did you have further thoughts or suggestions on this? — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 14:58, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
I actually think that adding |removalnotice = yes is a good idea, and should be fairly uncontroversial given the consensus at the RfC. I'm just wasn't sure that removing the existing call to action was uncontroversial enough to be done unilaterally. --Ahecht (TALK

Hi, people. You might want to take a look at this: User talk:Codename Lisa § Template:Cleanup -- full stop. As the addition of the removal notice is so far uncontested, I am going to add it to the template. —Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 07:27, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
