Edit request from Australian Matt, 28 June 2011[edit]

My request is for the removal of

link alias-football = Australia national association football team

from this template.

At the moment all {{fbu}} links are going to the National Team page (see links from the {{fbu|17|AUS}} template in use here), even though there are suitable U-17, U-20 and U-23 pages for each team.

You may be right, but this may affect other uses and does not seem to be the best way to go about this. Perhaps we need to add another variable such as |link alias-football-U17=Australia under 17 national association football team. But I will ask User:Andrwsc to attend to this request. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 12:16, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
The {{{age|}}} template should then be included, so that it reads:
link alias-football = Australia {{{age|}}} {{{mw|}}} national association football team

If Andrwsc doesn't show up soon, we can try something. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 15:36, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
I fixed the template, and set answered=yes to the edit request, both on July 1. — Andrwsc (talk · contribs) 21:25, 5 July 2011 (UTC)
So you did. I didn't check the template itself and I didn't notice the answered=yes. Thanks — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:44, 6 July 2011 (UTC)


If one's using {{nbt}}, Australia's screwed up --> Australia. Can this be fixed? –HTD 14:01, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

That's because {{nbt/code}} links to Australia national association basketball team if the input is "Australia". It doesn't seem {{nbt}} uses the country data templates at all. SiBr4 (talk) 14:25, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
I see. Can someone edit that so that {{nbt}} can use the country data templates? –HTD 16:46, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
To get the link for Australia working, it's easier to change {{nbt/code}} to point to the right article. If changing the template to use country data templates is helpful for more countries, that could be done using coding like [[{{getalias|{{{1}}}|link|basketball}}|{{{1}}}]] → Australia. SiBr4 (talk) 18:12, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
Note that this coding only works for country data templates that have a {{{link alias-basketball}}} parameter defined: Belgium doesn't work. Something needs to be done with parser functions to have a "default" link for other countries. SiBr4 (talk) 18:16, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
I already take care of {{nbt/code}}, but you're right it has to be fixed for everyone else. –HTD 09:13, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 9 January 2015[edit]

Please add the Australian Army flag and link, so that the link shows correctly when using Template:Army:

| flag alias-army = Flag of Australia (converted).svg | link alias-army = Australian Army

Derekbridges (talk) 18:02, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Yellow check.svg Partly done: Added the army link:  Australian Army. I did not add the flag variant since the army flag is identical to the national flag; the files File:Flag of Australia.svg and File:Flag of Australia (converted).svg just use different official sets of colors (web colors vs. Pantone colors).

Template-protected edit request on 11 July 2015[edit]

Please fix the link-alias-basketball line:

| link alias-basketball = Australia {{{mw|men's}}} national {{{age|}}} basketball team
