Developmental psychology template[edit]

How exactly is the commentary coded into this template? It says:

Obviously Developmental Psychology deals with becoming mature (psychologically). I often find people referring to this, His response was immature, or, Her behavior was mature.
I find this area needs careful examination and explanation - I suggests a topic of its own, although one may already exist. Often it involves Projection 1 and other defence mechanisms, but to cover this aspect properly I think it needs to be brought together under a healthy, rather than a patholigical, approach.

Yet I can't find where this is coded. It's not on the page, and not in the main article for the template code. How would it be inserted? There are some errors I need to correct in formatting for that. Tyciol 16:16, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi Tyciol, the comment actually is on a "subpage." Click on "edit" at the end of this line:

Size parameter[edit]

I think it would have been better to use size= rather than small=yes|no - size= allows for various sizes rather than just yes/no -- Lee Carré 05:22, 23 November 2006 (UTC)


Please show the precedent for a "/Comments" page rather than using the talk page. -- RHaworth 19:15, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Two times today, I've had to move comments from novice Wikipedians that were incorrectly placed on a "/Comments" page. ([1] and [2] ) Both had been there for a long time, unnoticed. Can we maybe somehow change the text, or lay it out differently so unaccustomed Wikipedians and anonymous passers-by aren't confused...? /skagedal... 22:54, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Is it not there because that is the master WikiProject Psychology template that would normally go on the talk page of a WikiProject Psychology article? I have seem templates on talk pages that have a "comments" section as this one does. —Mattisse (Talk) 23:21, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes, and the problem is that naive users think that this is the way to comment on the article—by clicking "comment"... I don't know if this is a problem in other WikiProjects. (It might not be that big of a problem in this project either, just because I happened to stumple upon two instances of it today...) /skagedal... 23:37, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Task forces[edit]

Someone who can edit this template should add parameters corresponding to the project's Psychotherapy and Psychometrics task forces, so that articles can be assessed as being in the scope of these task forces by modifying this template on the articles' talk pages.

 Not done: please make your requested changes to the template's sandbox first; see WP:TESTCASES. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:42, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
@Primefac and Captain Occam: Why were these changes put live immediately, without being sandboxed first as requested by MSGJ (talk · contribs)? --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 19:29, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
The changes were made as a result of the discussion at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Templates#Template:WikiProject_Psychology. I wasn't aware this issue was being discussed here also (and I suspect Primefac wasn't aware of that either). --Captain Occam (talk) 19:40, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
Yup, didn't know this was declined already. Given that I've done a bunch of these before, I didn't think it was all that controversial. Probably should have waited until I had all the information, but it looks to be working fine now. Primefac (talk) 20:16, 29 March 2018 (UTC) (please ping on reply)
If it had been sandboxed, I would have spotted these four problems before they hit the live template. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:25, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
