Image[edit]

Wouldn't Image:Palin1.JPG be a better image? –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 16:23, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

No, the other is more professional in appearance. rootology (C)(T) 16:24, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
I switched the pic to one that appeared on the Wikipedia main page a few days ago.Ferrylodge (talk) 16:25, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
OK. rootology (C)(T) 16:27, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
That one's just as good. –Juliancolton Tropical Cyclone 16:34, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Template overburdened[edit]

I reduced the sheer amount of links in the template to make it more usable. I hope this is regarded as an improvement. Hekerui (talk) 17:59, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Interviews with Katie Couric[edit]

I would suggest linking to this from Public image and reception of Sarah Palin. Though it could be directly merged into the article. Hekerui (talk) 03:13, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm adding it to the media coverage section.--The lorax (talk) 05:15, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Levi Johnson[edit]

{{editsemiprotected}} Shouldn't Levi Johnson be included in the template, either under the 'Family' or 'Related Articles' headings? Not only did he play a part in her campaign and it's aftermath, but he also is the father of her grandson.


Not done: Welcome and thanks for wanting to improve this template. The {{editsemiprotected}} template is meant to allow non-autoconfirmed users to make changes to semi-protected templates. You need to make a specific request, not a general suggestion. For instance. "Please add 'Levi Johnson (Grandson's father)' to the 'Family' section" or "Please add 'Levi Johnson' to the 'Related Articles' section." BTW, that's not the right name.

Why are parody books listed here?[edit]

Books not written by her should be omitted in this box Daimengrui (talk) 04:06, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

if it should appear here, then I suggest you modify Related Articles to Related Books and Articles and put all related written materials there. It gives me the impression that some of those works are written by her ( which is not the case ) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Daimengrui (talkcontribs) 04:08, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Now all books by her and all books about her are listed in separate groups. Victor Victoria (talk) 14:29, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

On a related note[edit]

I was debating whether to list the book Going Rouge: Sarah Palin, An American Nightmare in the book and media coverage group or in the parodies group. Since only the title of the book is a parody, the book itself has nothing to do with her book, Going Rogue: An American Life, I arrived at the conclusion that the book Going Rouge: Sarah Palin, An American Nightmare belongs in the book and media coverage group. Victor Victoria (talk) 14:29, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Parodies and pranks?[edit]

What is the aim of listing Parodies and pranks including a porn movie that she did not act in this template? Don't tell me it is because the Wikipedia is uncensored. No major Encyclopedia like Brittanica would include a porn movie which she did not act in her page! Kavas (talk) 13:23, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Removal of "Who's Nailin' Paylin?"[edit]

Please see here to participate in a discussion to remove mention of the the abovementioned porn film from this template. Kelly hi! 09:13, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

There clearly has been no immediate consensus there supporting the continued inclusion of the link. Given the potential WP:BLP (among other) concerns, I've removed it unless and until there's clear support for its inclusion. jæs (talk) 04:58, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Collapsed portion of template[edit]

Given the number of pages this template appears on, I collapsed a portion of it to make it more page-friendly, as is done with Template:Barack Obama. The collapsed portion contains the items that are only related to Palin. Kelly hi! 17:59, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

{{edit semi-protected}}
Requesting that Kelly (talk · contribs)'s above-described revision be reverted --I would, but this template is semi-protected. Although she claims that auto-collapsing the "Public Image" section is to make the navbox more "page-friendly", that justification seems questionable given his/her previous content removal actions taken on this page (see previous section), as the effective result is obscuring the appearance of the "Who's Nailin Paylin" link. Remember, Wikipedia is not censored. 184.59.23.225 (talk) 02:53, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
I suppose technically we should based on BRD but I am hesitant to since I think it both improves readability and assists in that POV issue people see without removing the link. If you completely disagree I would be willing to revert the editor but I really would prefer if you let some discussion take place (which Kelly did not, of course). A couple days (if it is decided to go back) won;t be a big deal in the grand scheme of things.Cptnono (talk) 03:01, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
It improves readability.Anythingyouwant (talk) 05:21, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
I tend to agree with Kelly's edit and think it is better and should be left alone and not reverted. 192.102.209.29 (talk) 23:02, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
I'm untranscluding this edit request as it appears that at least a few users concur it should not be done. I'm inclined to agree with the reasoning as well--while the cause for the change may or may not have been genuine, if the general consensus is that it looks better this way, then we can leave it.

Contribution?[edit]

Is Wikipedia getting paid to run this ad for Sara Palin ? If is it free, is that not a contribution to her political party or campaign ? Should that not be registered as a contribution under campaign law during her bit for Vice president ? Even though it is not money, it has value over $50. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Constitutionguard (talkcontribs) 08:57, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
