Template talk:Copy to Wikibooks Cookbook
This template was nominated for deletion on April 19th, 2006. The result of the discussion was to keep it. The discussion can be viewed here.
Changed text of template
I removed the phrase, "and remove this message" from the template. Although I'm still not sure how this best should be worded. The problem is, if there is a recipe in the article, it should be moved to wikibooks cookbook and then removed from the article. At this point, the article should be kept, expanded, or deleted, depending on whether it needs expansion or can be expanded or if there is anything left to keep. The text previous to my change seemed to suggest that if the article were a simple recipe and if it were expanded, then the template could be removed. This is not appropriate as this would still leave the recipe in place. --Xyzzyplugh 01:18, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
Rename as Copy to Wikibooks Cookbook?
I suggest that this template be renamed to "Copy to Wikibooks Cookbook". Putting this template in place does not cause an article to be moved, it causes it to be copied. Once copied, the original might be deleted from wikipedia, or it might be rewritten, expanded, etc. Calling this "Move to wikibooks" makes people who come across the template think that the template will cause the deletion of the article, and often leads people to remove the template inappropriately. Giving it the proper name would end that. Note that I'm also suggesting the renaming of some of the other "Move to" templates to "Copy to", see Wikipedia:Village_pump_(proposals)#Rename_all_Move_to_templates_to_Copy_to. --Xyzzyplugh 11:03, 2 September 2006 (UTC)
Move to Wikibooks Cookbook is now Copy to Wikibooks Cookbook
For the reasons listed in my first paragraph above, I have moved this template to Copy to Wikibooks Cookbook. Also, see Template_talk:Move_to_Wiktionary#Move_vs._copy, where this subject was discussed (although for Move to Wiktionary) and consensus was that this change was appropriate. I plan to similarly rename the Move to Wikibooks and Move to Wikisource templates, and possibly some of the others. There are mentions in various articles and help files and such around wikipedia which mention "Move to Wikibooks Cookbook" which will need to be changed, I will do that after some time has passed, waiting first to see if there is some major disagreement to this change. --Xyzzyplugh 04:48, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
