Template-protected edit request on 21 March 2016[edit]

I need support added for Wikiproject Maryland Frederick County taskforce. The task force is located at WP:WPMD/FRE. Fpl-dmatzrott (talk) 14:58, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 28 April 2016[edit]

I would like to request that the following two parameters:

  • |TF_2_LINK = Wikipedia:WikiProject Maryland/Frederick
  • |TF_2_MAIN_CAT = Frederick County, Maryland

be changed to:

  • |TF_2_LINK = Wikipedia:WikiProject Maryland/Frederick task force
  • |TF_2_MAIN_CAT = Frederick task force articles

The task force page was recently moved and I've been working to create categories to mirror existing task force project pages. The aforementioned changes would circumvent an unnecessary redirect and place WikiProject Maryland articles with the parameter "Frederick=true" into the appropriate category. As it currently stands, any talk page tagged is placed within the Frederick County category instead of the task force category, which is superfluous as the Frederick County category is already contained within those articles themselves.

Thanks! ~ Erick Shepherd • (Talk) • 13:20, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Yellow check.svg Partly done: I changed the LINK parameter, but the MAIN_CAT should probably be more specific, given the prior name at "Frederick County, Maryland". Do you have a different preference? Izno (talk) 13:28, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
To Izno: Perhaps Category:Frederick County, Maryland task force articles? In which case, I will request the deletion of Category:Frederick task force articles. ~ Erick Shepherd • (Talk) • 13:45, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Be sure to create the new category. Izno (talk) 13:52, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
Done! Thank you! ~ Erick Shepherd • (Talk) • 13:53, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

I am requesting that the following two lines:

  • |TF_2_TEXT = This {{pagetype|{{{class|}}}}} is supported by the '''[[Wikipedia:WikiProject Maryland/Frederick task force|Frederick task force]]''' {{#if:{{{Frederick-importance|}}}|(rated as '''{{ucfirst:{{{Frederick-importance}}}}}-importance''' on the task force's [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Maryland/Frederick task force/Assessment#Importance scale|importance scale]].)}}
  • |tf 2 importance={{{Frederick-importance|}}}

be added to this WikiProject template. The purpose of these lines is to allow the Frederick task force to add its own importance ratings to subjects within this project, as is the case with WikiProject California's task forces. ~ Erick Shepherd • (Talk) • 20:58, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

@Erick Shepherd: Symbol question.svg Question: Your change will make the template spit out categories like
Are you sure about this? Code-wise, the change looks okay. Let me know — Andy W. (talk · contrib) 21:18, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
To Andy M. Wang: I'm certain. I intend to create the category pages and populate them as soon as the template is updated. ~ Erick Shepherd • (Talk) • 21:21, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

@Erick Shepherd: Looks like you have a list of categories to create, see Template:WikiProject Maryland. You're definitely well-versed in how the template behaves. If you're able to, you can update the documentation as well. Cheers :) — Andy W. (talk · contrib) 21:25, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
To Andy M. Wang: Thank you! Face-smile.svg ~ Erick Shepherd • (Talk) • 21:27, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
I just updated the documentation. ~ Erick Shepherd • (Talk) • 22:08, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 2 May 2016[edit]

I am requesting that the following markup:

|tf 1                 = {{{Baltimore|}}}
 |TF_1_LINK           = Wikipedia:WikiProject Maryland/Baltimore
 |TF_1_NAME           = the Baltimore Task Force
 |TF_1_NESTED         = Baltimore
 |TF_1_IMAGE          = Flag of Baltimore City.svg
 |TF_1_SIZE           = 50px
 |TF_1_QUALITY        = yes
 |TF_1_ASSESSMENT_CAT = Baltimore articles 
 |TF_1_MAIN_CAT       = Baltimore task force articles 

be changed to:

|tf 1                 = {{{Baltimore|}}}
 |TF_1_LINK           = Wikipedia:WikiProject Maryland/Baltimore task force
 |TF_1_NAME           = the Baltimore Task Force
 |TF_1_NESTED         = Baltimore
 |TF_1_IMAGE          = Flag of Baltimore City.svg
 |TF_1_SIZE           = 50px
 |TF_1_QUALITY        = yes
 |TF_1_ASSESSMENT_CAT = Baltimore articles 
 |TF_1_MAIN_CAT       = Baltimore task force articles 
 |TF_1_TEXT           = This {{pagetype|{{{class|}}}}} is supported by the '''[[Wikipedia:WikiProject Maryland/Baltimore task force|Baltimore task force]]''' {{#if:{{{Baltimore-importance|}}}|(rated as '''{{ucfirst:{{{Baltimore-importance}}}}}-importance''' on the task force's [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Maryland/Baltimore task force/Assessment#Importance scale|importance scale]].)}}
|tf 1 importance      = {{{Baltimore-importance|}}}

This requested edit is a mirror for the Baltimore task force of the above two edits made for the Frederick task force on 28 April 2016. It changes the link in the template away from a redirect following a renaming of the task force page, and allows the task force to rate articles based on their importance to the force. I fully intend to rectify the template documentation and any articles affected by the change following its implementation. Thanks! Face-smile.svg ~ Erick Shepherd • (Talk) • 23:58, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
