Overcolored doesn't show date[edit]

While {{Overcoloured}} will display the date (e.g. List of Total Wipeout episodes), {{Overcolored}} does not (e.g. Wipeout (2009 Australian game show)). Could someone please fix this? Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 02:36, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done the parameter wasn't passed through. --Redrose64 (talk) 09:08, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

There is no need for two separate, same templates. Gamingforfun365 (talk) 18:24, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

How do you propose to handle UK/US spelling differences? --Redrose64 (talk) 22:33, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
It is not that I dislike the template for its British spelling; it is only that these two templates have the same function. Surely, the template may be appropriate for British English readers, but that is just it. The only difference is the spelling, and that may although very insignificantly clog the Wikipedia servers. My point is that we have no need to have duplicates of templates with only a few minor changes, although I may be quest as to why I had picked this template instead of the other.
But some people like the idea of having the spelling difference. I just do not see why we must have it. Do you? Gamingforfun365 (talk) 03:15, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
It's not a duplicate. {{Overcolored}} is a wrapper for {{overcoloured}} with |US=y forced. --Redrose64 (talk) 08:51, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
