Wikipedia talk:Template messages/User talk namespace

I believe that linking to the teahouse to ask questions inside of the warning could be very helpful to new editors. This would make it so they can ask questions about their warning, after asking the warner. My change is below:

Hello, I'm <name>. I wanted to let you know that one or more of <contribs> have been undone because they did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the <sandbox>. If you think a mistake was made, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on <user talk>. If you have a question about Wikipedia's guidelines, feel free to ask it at the Teahouse.Thanks.

(Of course, it would be normal next.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cocohead781 (talkcontribs) 04:29, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Usernames related to a "real-world" group or organization[edit]

Template:Uw-ublock says usernames must not be "related to a "real-world" group or organization", which contradicts Wikipedia:Username policy#Usernames implying shared use where these are examples of acceptable usernames. Peter James (talk) 00:15, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

That's a good point. and the "real-world" is a bit odd as the "real-world" is the real world. Instead of "related" perhaps if it said "signifying a group or organization and not an individual at that organization" or something like that. Jytdog (talk) 17:58, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

Article not rendering[edit]

I'm using {{subst:uw-subtle2|article}}, but it won't render the name of the article (in this case is Steven Spence). What is wrong? Thinker78 (talk) 19:43, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

Fixed True enough Thinker78, the template code had no provision to link an article even though the documentation says this is possible. The first-level warning {{uw-subtle1}} does include such coding, so I've now copied the coding over to {{uw-subtle2}} and it should now work as desired: Noyster (talk), 21:59, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

Explain where the message came from[edit]

It would be nice if the user warning templates had a standard disclaimer at the bottom saying something like:

The above message is a standardized template created by the user warnings project. You may discuss the contents of these templates at the user warning talk page.

The end of the above is in bold because I am posting this message on the page it links to. The idea being to deflect any ill feelings about the wording of the message away from the person actually posting the message. --Pascal666 00:16, 17 December 2017 (UTC)
