User:JamesBWatson, the reason I made this change, which you reverted here, is in so many cases of promotional editing, the problem is not only the language, but bad sourcing (or lack of sourcing).... Jytdog (talk) 21:31, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Changing Username[edit]

I don't think the template should say 'Hello, I'm Jimbo' in Template:Uw-biog1 so I am planning to change this to something else. However, I don't know if I am allowed to do this or will it get reverted. Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:07, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

@Pkbwcgs: The noinclude tags within the template means it's not shown as Jimbo when the template is actually used, but by all means change it. If I could suggest, User:Example is often used in such places. -- zzuuzz (talk) 20:17, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
I think I will do the same to the other warning templates where it says 'Hello, I'm Jimbo' by changing it to 'Hello, I'm Example' to avoid confusion. Redgro (talk) 14:55, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

Template line break[edit]

Hey there. Template:Uw-voablock currently has a line break between the two sentences, which looks a little weird to me. It hasn't always been there, has it? --Bongwarrior (talk) 23:14, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

@Bongwarrior: It changed on 5 September from this series of edits to {{uw-block}}. — JJMC89(T·C) 23:36, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! I figured the change was in a sub-template somewhere, but I couldn't figure out exactly where. I'll take it up with Alex at some point. The line break itself probably isn't what's bugging me, but it looks odd on the VOA template because it's only two sentences long. I'm assuming the same line break looks fine on some of the wordier templates. --Bongwarrior (talk) 00:18, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
Codename Lisa made the initial change, not Alex. — JJMC89(T·C) 00:34, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
Ah, thanks again. --Bongwarrior (talk) 00:58, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

Hatnote for Template:CV[edit]

It might be helpful if {{Uw-copyright}} had a hatnote such as

Adding the code

{{redirect|Template:CV|curriculum vitae|Template:Resume|and|Template:Like resume}}

to the banners= parameter of {{single notice}} seems to work, but I'd rather an expert ran their eye over this change before putting it live. Thanks, Certes (talk) 21:34, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
