Edit request

Would it be possible to replace File:UKfilm.png with the new SVG version? Bitplane 12:21, 2 January 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bitplane (talkcontribs)

??? What where? -- AnmaFinotera (talk · contribs) 17:53, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
The request is for the image for the British task force, but I don't understand why we need it different. BOVINEBOY2008 :) 21:52, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Well the immediate benefit is that the rendered output is 1k smaller than the original (at 30px), it looks cleaner too, it also helps the SVG transition guys over at Commons by removing it from todo lists (I see that this isn't an argument though, commons exists to serve Wikipedia not the other way around). The reason I made it is for the future, when MediaWiki eventually serves SVG files to compatible clients (currently everything but Internet Explorer) we'll see a fully scalable Wikipedia supporting any screen size without pixelation. This isn't just good for the visually impaired and sci-fi screen resolutions of the future, but also for people reading on their televisions. You don't have to use it, but it would be nicer IMO if you did :) Bitplane 13:18, 7 January 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bitplane (talkcontribs)

Leaving a blank line

{{editprotected}}

This template is leaving a blank line:

          This template is of interest to the following WikiProjects:

{{film}}

There's some extra carriage returns that need fixing.

X mark.svg Not done Nothing wrong with it. See Template:WPBS - "The |1= is required." - if missing, it gives a blank line - one needs {{WPBS|1= not {{WikiProjectBannerShell|  Ronhjones  (Talk) 01:43, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Could something be done? None of the templates I've seen cause this extra line. I believe it's a simple matter of removing the newlines from the beginning of the template. E.g.:
Change:
<!--check if this template has been placed in the right location-->{{#switch:{{lc:{{{category|}}}}}|no|n=|<includeonly>{{#ifeq:{{TALKSPACE}}|{{NAMESPACE}}||{{mbox|type=content|imageright=[[File:Video-x-generic.svg|40x40px]]|text=The {{tl|Film}} WikiProject banner below should be moved to this {{#switch:{{NAMESPACE}}|{{ns:0}}=article's|page's}} '''[[{{TALKPAGENAME}}|talk page]]'''.

<!--start banner table-->
{| class="wpb collapsible innercollapse messagebox {{#switch:{{lc:{{{small|}}}}}|yes|y=small-talk|standard-talk}}"

to:

Category:Film banners using the small parameter

It appears that specifying "small=yes" in this template will add a page to Category:Film banners using the small parameter; it took me a while to figure out that the categorization takes place through {{Film/Checks}}, which is transcluded into this template. I'm curious, what is the purpose of tracking which pages use a small version of the project banner? Thanks, –Black Falcon (talk) 01:44, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Good question...with only two articles even using it, though, I wonder if the parameter is even necessary (maybe that is what was being tracked?) -- AnmaFinotera (talk · contribs) 01:50, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps... I have asked PC78 on his talk page whether he could offer any clarification; however, at the moment he seems to be on wikibreak. –Black Falcon (talk) 20:15, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
I don't recall the specifics... I would have put it when I was making some upgrades to the banner, possibly just to find out how much the parameter was being used. It can be removed if people want, but TBH I don't think it would be worth the bother. May be useful as a subcategory of Category:Small talk page templates, if nothing else.

lowercase

{{Editprotected}} Category:Book-Class Film articles should be a lowercase (Category:Book-Class film articles), like the rest of the categories. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 02:30, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Fixed — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 08:53, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
