Importance by subproject/taskforce[edit]

I noticed {{WikiProject Caribbean}} had some importance parameters for each separate project under its scope (e.g. "|tf 2 importance={{{Bahamas-importance|}}}"). I was wondering if we couldn't perhaps have the same, as in qc-importance, canlaw-importance, and so on. It would be useful since, for example, Transport Canada is high-importance for cangov but mid or low for the rest of the project. - SweetNightmares 00:33, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

I support such an addition, though I wouldn't know how to do the code; ever since WP:BC WP:Vancouver and the like were merged into the WP:CANADA template, what is 'low' or 'mid' for Canada is often 'high' or 'top' re the city and province projects (though city switches aren't in the Canada template; maybe for major ones they could/should be?; I'm not sure if WP:Okanagan exists, but Kelowna, Penticton, Vernon and Lake Okanagan and the Okanogan River would be decidedly 'top' importance (the river isn't top importance in BC, but that is or was a bi-national project and it's top importance on the Washington side).Skookum1 (talk) 00:45, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
It can certainly be done, and the technique would be very similar to the existing parameters |montreal-importance= |ottawa-importance= |toronto-importance= |vancouver-importance= These allow the importance for those cities to be set independently of the main |importance= Might I suggest that to begin with, only the thirteen provinces and territories be provided with independent importance assessment? --Redrose64 (talk) 11:10, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Why only the provinces and territories? Like I said, the Transport Canada article should be listed "high" for cangov, but low for the rest of WP:CA. For another example, the Manicougan Reservoir would probably use "geography-importance=high" whereas WP:CA would default to low. These projects are more active (and better organized) than most provincial WikiProjects. - SweetNightmares 14:12, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Change photo requests to image requests[edit]

As part of a nearly-completed shift to distinguish requests for photos from requests for images in general, it is requested that this template be modified to place talk pages in "Wikipedia requested images of..." categories, rather than the old "Wikipedia requested photographs of..." categories. As such, please supplement all references to "photo(s) of..." and "photograph(s) of..." with "image(s) of..." in both the template and its documentation, while maintaining backwards compatibility for the old "photo" parameters. In particular, change "photograph or picture" to simply "image". Note that the "Wikipedia requested images of..." categories have already been created. Thank you! — s w p b T 15:30, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

Edit request on 9 May 2016[edit]

Can someone change the text output by the 'tvshow' param to say Canadian television, instead of Canadian TV shows project? This would make it match the sub-project's title. Alternatively, a new param could be created. Alaney2k (talk) 17:24, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

I think I have the change set up properly in the sandbox. Alaney2k (talk) 17:30, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
yellow tickY Partly done. If you change the assessment category it will be necessary to rename 26 subcategories of Category:WikiProject Canadian TV shows articles and update the topic parameter of templates on each page. I'm not sure if you want that much work, so I've left that part for now. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 19:03, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Somebody all-wiki-powerful could probably do it easily. I'll look into it. Thanks for now. Looks much better. Alaney2k (talk) 19:42, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Proposed merger notice[edit]

Could a notice of the ongoing TfD at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2016 August 16#Canada portal selected article templates be added to the template? Thanks, Graham (talk) 20:14, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

@Me-123567-Me: Not done First, you've given a redlink. Second, where was consensus established for this addition? --Redrose64 (talk) 19:07, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
