Tweak wording of Template:Uw-nonfree[edit]

I am wondering if the wording of the second sentence of {{Uw-nonfree}} needs to be tweaked a bit. It currently reads as "We always appreciate when users upload new images" which is fine if the only time this template was used had to do with new image uploads, but that's not really the case. Many (perhaps most?) non-free content use violations have to do with editors inappropriately adding previously uploaded files to articles. This is sort of covered in the third sentence of the template, but sentences two and three seem to be in conflict, at least it seems like that to me. Maybe it would be better to reword/combine the two sentences in a manner to eliminate any possible confusion. FWIW, I've come across editors who assume non-free files already uploaded by others are "automatically" OK for Wikipedia and use a sort of WP:NOBODYCOMPLAINED-type or WP:JUSTONE-type of argument to justify its use in other articles, which is not really how the WP:NFCCP is supposed to be applied. Obviously, this template won't eliminate all such problems, but tweaking it might better clarify things for some editors when it is added to their user talk page. -- Marchjuly (talk) 21:50, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 7 July 2017 Suggestion[edit]

Please remove the line that reads {{:{{FULLPAGENAME}}|notalk=yes}}; I find it potentially confusing and other editors may find it confusing as well; it makes it seem like the no talk part of the template is part of the actual template. Consider moving it into the documentation instead. UpsandDowns1234 (🗨) 06:00, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Not done: It's in a noinclude section:
<noinclude>
{{:{{FULLPAGENAME}}|notalk=yes}}
...
</noinclude>

I understand that it is inside of <noinclude>...</noinclude>, it is just that when rendered, it can be found confusing. It belongs inside of the doc. UpsandDowns1234 (🗨) 15:14, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

About uw-block for enforcing editing restrictions[edit]

Since {{uw-csblock}} is for general sanctions, there doesn't seem to be a template for personal sanctions. Should I make one? Alex ShihTalk 01:14, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

I've gone ahead and created {{uw-cserblock}} for anyone interested. Alex ShihTalk 05:04, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
I added a link to it at WP:WARN, this could be removed if contested however. —PaleoNeonate - 21:27, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

Altering cited quotes[edit]

I don't seem to find a template for this. It is a common occurence from POV pushing editors. I currently use uw-pov or uw-vandal in these cases which work but which require additional comment in the revert edit summary and/or on the user's talk page about MOS:PMC. —PaleoNeonate – 00:26, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
