::: [[:Category:General wiki templates]] has been removed, unfortunately complicating the situation. This will have to be discussed... I would be in favor of boiling all templates' categories down to [[w:c:starter:Category:Templates|the single "Templates" category that still remains]] perhaps adding to the instruction section if the creation of a category for some type of template is rather obligatory.

:::: Is there anything preventing you from making this new version of <tt>Template:Documentation</tt> under a different name like [[Template:Documentation for copying]] or something like that? If you could do that, I'll create a wiki-wide notice for people to look at the proposal. --&nbsp;[[User:Fandyllic|<span style="border-bottom:1px dotted; cursor:help;" title="WoWWiki Admin">Fandyllic</span>]]<small> ([[User talk:Fandyllic|talk]] &middot; [[Special:Contributions/Fandyllic|contr]])</small> 24 Aug 2017 9:40 AM Pacific

::::: I have it at [[User:Henstepl]] to prevent redlinks, but I'll be happy to move it.
 
::::: Eventually the functionality should be in Template:Documentation itself - otherwise violates the tenet that the user can copy the template and its documentation without modification; they don't have other documentation templates. This documentation template that I am working on will be one of a handful of templates ''only interesting for use on Templates Wiki'', which ought to have their own category.
 
::::: I recognize that some will want to download a more functional Documentation template for their own wiki; we can have this too, but ''this'' is the template that should be located at a different location (with installation instructions explaining that it should be installed at the regular Template:Documentation location).
