Inline image size[edit]

{{editprotected}}

Please could the direct link in this template to [[:Image:River_gambia_Niokolokoba_National_Park.gif]] be removed. The image is the full-size version and is 215 kB in size! This is wholly inappropriate for a mere Talk page template (with 70px icon) and causes excessive cost to people using mobile data services.—Sladen (talk) 15:02, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, that's ridiculous. Switched the image. It's now 2KB. That seems reasonable. Cheers. --MZMcBride (talk) 02:50, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

1.0 assessment classes[edit]

{{editprotected}} Hello, would someone be able to add the full assessment classes that aren't in use yet for this project, like Template and the Project classes? It would help a lot in the sorting process. Thanks in advance. --Funandtrvl (talk) 15:57, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Added editprotected rqst, would someone change this to WPBannerMeta, with full quality scale? Thanks! --Funandtrvl (talk) 21:44, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Not done for now: Hi, could you put together your idea of what the new template should look like in a sandbox (say, Template:River/Sandbox), and then re-post the editprotected request? That way the responding admin can just copy it straight over. The general practice for editprotected requests is to make it as easy for the responding admin as possible.

Have put together the WPBannerMeta at Template:River/sandbox. Could someone update the current banner? Thanks. --Funandtrvl (talk) 01:09, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Template:River[edit]

I added to the top of this template:

<noinclude>[[Template:River]] redirects here. This template is for talk pages. For the top of an article use {{tlx|Infobox river}}</noinclude>

The addition was reverted by user:Redrose64 with the comment "rv x3: this is the sort of thing that belongs in the template's documentation" (diff).

  1. why do you think it belongs in the documentation?
  2. if it does why did you not add it?

It belongs in the documentation because it is not part of the template's working, it is information about the template. There are plenty of precedents for putting a hatnote in the doc of a template - see for example: {{abbr}}; {{as of}}; {{category link}}; {{citation}}; {{clarify}}; {{dated}}; {{infobox country}}; {{infobox journal}}; {{infobox person}}; and others - I know of none where the hatnote is outside the documentation. You could have added it to the doc yourself, if you feel that pointing out a redirect is important. --Redrose64 (talk) 23:03, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
I think it is better at the head of the template where it is clear to see and not buried further down in the text. You are the one who states "rv x3: this is the sort of thing that belongs in the template's documentation". I will gladly restore it to the top or change the redirect to point to {{Infobox river}}. If you think it is better in the documentation then address the issue rather than revering my edit. -- PBS (talk) 14:53, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
I didn't say that it should be buried. It's not difficult to put it in the doc. --Redrose64 (talk) 14:50, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
