Orthoptera Species File (OSF) citation[edit]

There is already a citation template for Orthoptera Species File (OSF) on the Italian Wikipedia.[1] Can we get one here? –Hyperik talk 00:50, 19 October 2018 (UTC)

Move notice template[edit]

I'm proposing a new template, {{Move notice}}, which would operate analogously to {{Afd notice}} and be used to notify users (or WikiProjects) about a proposed page move. I have a mockup in my sandbox here. The transcluded /doc page should suffice for meeting WP:RT requirements about what the template should do. There are also four test cases available, the first one is here. All the test cases "pass" at the moment; perhaps more of them should be added. There's also one pending item in my ToDo list on the Talk page, which will probably break my tests if I try to implement it.

I'm not a very experienced template writer, and quite shaky with safesubst which I just copied out of the Afd notice template, so that bears looking at, and the whole template needs a once-over. This grew out of a real-world need, where I found I was pasting the same boilerplate on various user pages and WikiProjects, and decided it needed a better solution than that, and this is the result.

Mathglot, I don't have much experience with templates, but I think it would be helpful to have a parameter/input to allow someone to override the default discussion location. Since sometimes people start discussions in the wrong place, or a proposed move comes out of an existing in progress discussion. zchrykng (talk) 00:04, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
Zchrykng, I'm a newbie at templates, but adding that param is easy enough to do; I'll put it on my list. Thanks for the suggestion. If you have more, please add them directly to the talk page of the template as well, or at least add a link there to here or wherever. Thanks, Mathglot (talk) 00:07, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
Will do! zchrykng (talk) 00:24, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
@Mathglot and Zchrykng: Do you agree also with my suggestions at User talk:Mathglot/sandbox/Templates/Template:move notice#Move notice about also including a parameter for primary topics (specifically) and naming (specifically) don't worry about the precise text as that can be worked on, the main thing is having the parameters.

Rfd should show required parameter[edit]

If I enter {{Rfd}} on a page, it tells me to Subst: it, and shows

Error: No content was provided. The original text of the page (the #REDIRECT line and any templates) must be placed inside of the content parameter.

However, it is not obvious to all editors that this means we have to add |content=.

It would be helpful if the module could be amended to explain clearly the specific code required. At present, an editor unfamiliar with the template has to open it in a separate window to see what is required. – Fayenatic London 11:57, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Jawaharlal Nehru[edit]

Would it be possible to make a template for the first Indian Prime Ministr Jawaharlal Nehru ?

@Akhiljaxxn: a template of what?? A topic sidebar? A navbox? What are you looking for? --Zackmann (Talk to me/What I been doing) 09:59, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Template:di-disputed fair use rationale disputed[edit]

Template:di-disputed fair use rationale requires contacting an editor who placed the tag if the tag were to be removed. If someone were too reluctant to contact that editor, how about creating the template to dispute the rationale, almost similar to Template:di-replaceable fair use disputed?
