Edit request[edit]

Please replace

[[Portal:current events|current event]].'''

with

[[Portal:Current events|current event]]{{#if:{{{3|{{{event|}}}}}}|: [[{{{3|{{{event|}}}}}}]]|}}.'''

This will add an event link, so that a current person can also link to the event they are current in, should the event also have an article. -- 70.24.250.26 (talk) 06:30, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Not done: Template:Current related does this. 117Avenue (talk) 03:26, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Content[edit]

Why does the template read "This person is about a article involved in a current event."? This makes no sense whatsoever. First of all, a person cannot be about an article (by the way, it is "an", not "a"). Secondly, an article cannot be involved in a current event. Is there some jumbling going on? After reading the text in the template, I am less sure in what cases it should be used. Please help. The Average Wikipedian (talk) 10:14, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
