Category:Pages actively undergoing construction[edit]

Can we please set up this template so that it does not place User namespace articles in Category:Pages actively undergoing construction? Cheers. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 08:02, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Agree. There is nothing in the text of this template, that would justify that category. Debresser (talk) 09:23, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

For that matter, since this template is more similar to {{inuse}} than {{underconstruction}} in that it is not intended for use over long periods, shouldn't it use Category:Pages actively undergoing a major edit instead? Anomie 00:56, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Why is this not for use with biographies of living persons?[edit]

If it is only intended to give an editor time to complete a first session of editing to establish an article, and not as an excuse to leave an article that fails to meet standards and guidelines there for a long time, I don't see why its use on biographies of living persons should be considered less appropriate than any other use.

I think it's because BLPs are riskier and the powers that be don't want to take the chance of incorrect/libellous information being kept up because it's been obfuscated by the template. It makes sense to me, anyway. BTW bravo to whomever created this template - if I'd had access to this back when I was a regular editor I might not have left the project in frustration.

I agree with your explanation. And you're always welcome to rejoin. Debresser (talk) 10:34, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Draft: namespace[edit]

I propose replacing the mention of userfication with a suggestion to potentially move drafts to the Draft: namespace, since it's a somewhat more intuitive mechanism to collaborate on article drafts. Any concerns?--Eloquence* 04:39, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
