Sandboxed article creation[edit]

Hi APerson. I try to figure out why there is no response on this recommendation (it has been archived). I am placing my template inside your sandbox page. Please see how it works, helping a user organize his sanboxed articles, by creating one or two sandboxes of your own with it, and how the template behaves to let create an article from a sandboxed one. See how sandboxes are organized in your main sandbox. Sorry for being a bit bold with your sandbox page. I do not know if there is a conflict with practices followed here and I hope you can enlighten me. Thank you.·· ManosHacker 19:37, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

ManosHacker, just took a look at it and it looks really good. A note on the technical implementation: {{Move sandbox to article}}, {{Sandbox subpages}}, and {{Create sandbox subpage}}, as "sub-templates" of the main one, could probably be moved under the main template instead of hanging out in template space as separate templates.
Regarding getting people to look at it, it's weird that more people didn't weigh in at the technical village pump. It might be on-topic at WP:VPPR instead of the technical one, though. Generally, good luck with your template! APerson (talk!) 00:39, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks APerson. I will try to merge all templates in one. I think my difficulty was to overcome the {| (table start) inside the if statements and I used subtemplates to solve it. Since you liked this template of mine, I have also one more to show you and you might help on this, also. Have a look here and give your opinion. It's been tested extensively and works like a charm. Have a nice day.·· ManosHacker 08:31, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

APersonBot's edit to Template:Teahouse invitation[edit]

Hi, I just came across this edit by APersonBot replacing "{{sign}}" with the contents of the {{sign}} template, without recognising that the "sign" in question was a parameter, not an instance of the template (it had three tildes instead of two). I wonder if this was intentional and whether or not the bot might have made similar edits to other pages with a {{{sign}}} parameter? In the meantime I've undone the edit. (PS. please mention my username in your comment or leave a note on my talk page if you reply) ~ benzband (talk) 15:35, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Benzband, I evidently forgot to exclude the templates which I was subst:'ing while I was subst:'ing them. I'll check as many bot edits as I can, but I'll be able to do more in front of a non-mobile device.
I'm pretty sure that subst:'ing the sign template was AWB's fault, but I'll definitely look into that. Thanks for alerting me! APerson (talk!) 01:58, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
