Whatever happened to the image for this one? Please change it back. The text looks really stupid. If someone wants to make a short-sighted and a near-sighted one that's fine, but don't ruin this one.Maprov 00:29, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

I agree. This is ridiculous. If someone wants to make a nearsighted template for users of American English then they should do that and not ruin one which is in real English. I have reverted the template, however, the image has been deleted. -TheCardinal 14:39, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

I've inserted a magnifying glass because the text made it look as if it's wrong to use the template. I've also changed the text back too. -- Francs2000 15:14, 18 January 2006 (UTC)
I know it's not ideal to have two templates that mean the same thing, but we're two nations divided by a common language. The nearsighted version of this template can be found at:
{{User Nearsighted}}

Sorry, "short sighted" means careless in the U.S. Also, farsighted people need magnifying glasses, not nearsighted/short sided people. But I'll leave this one alone, and switch to {{user nearsighted}}. --James S. 21:16, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

  • Short sighted has that meaning in British English as well as refering to 'nearsightedness'. -TheCardinal 01:22, 19 January 2006 (UTC)
