Template problems: an editor's troubles with magic words[edit]

I had noticed that there is what appears to be "conditional table" coding in Template:Table of states in the German Empire which was stated by original creator 52 Pickup, who has been inactive since October 2008, to "try to make this table usable for listing states of the North German Confederation without making a new table" by making some rows disappear and the information in some rows to change slightly. This edit was first made on 2 May 2007. I have attempted to make the coding work so that it can be placed on this page under the listed section, replacing the long text list already there. However, I am unsure what I am meant to be doing and was hoping for some assistance in getting the "magic word coding" to work so that the edited template can be used in the section that I want. Thanks.

You can use it with {{Table of states in the German Empire|NDB}}. However, as per WP:TG, it would be better to code both tables separately in the article. Alakzi (talk) 09:47, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
Thank you so much! But which part of WP:TG are you referring to as the part that I can see relating to this is: "Templates that misrepresent policy or substantially duplicate or hardcode the same functionality of established templates may fit the criteria for speedy deletion", I interpret this being if I were to create a second template, it could potentially be deleted as it possesses near-identical information to the original. The magic word coding was included to remove/change a few rows of information as it was easier than creating another table that is nearly identical. I think that it's easier to keep it as-is. Thanks again. Nick Mitchell 98 (talk) 11:49, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Non-inline "No Romanization" template[edit]

Please, could somebody create a template that would inform both the readers and editors that the whole text requires multiple instances of romanization/transliteration of non-Latin-script text? I'm aware of the [romanization needed] template, but it's only inline. Because quite a lot of articles are virtually fraught with non-romanized portions of text, it would be easier to put just a single template to the beginnig of the article. Many thanks in advance!

Infobox fictional conflict please[edit]

Please may someone rectify the Template:Infobox fictional military conflict so it's identical to Template:Infobox military conflict, but with the word fictional in the title. I've tried to make it myself, but failed miserably and the help page is that abstruse it's as much use as a chocolate teapot. Thanks very much, Gotha  Talk 00:28, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Sorry. Done it myself. Gotha  Talk 21:06, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Conditional logic required in Template:Year in Burma[edit]

Template:Year in Burma uses "Burma" for all years, but needs to be changed to produce links for "Myanmar" for years after 1989 and decades after 1990s. See Template talk:Year in Burma for a background links. – Fayenatic London 21:04, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Done. Alakzi (talk) 21:13, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Alkazi! That's a big step forward. Can we also make it work for periods that straddle the change? Compare 1988 and 1989: close to a name change, the template now either links to past decades, or to future decades. I realise that fixing this may require changes to Template:Year in region and be a lot more complicated. – Fayenatic London 21:16, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
