:::Yes, please don't assume that I intentionally left the history link out - I am aware of the requirement for the history link, and it was accidental oversight on my part that I didn't include it in the original version. I just added a sample history link, if that helps things any. =) <span style="white-space:nowrap;">「[[User:Dinoguy1000|<span style="color:#00f;">ダイノ</span><span style="color:#080;">ガイ</span>]][[Special:Contributions/Dinoguy1000|<span style="color:#F90;">千?!</span>]]」<sup>[[wikipedia:Help:IJP|?]] · [[User talk:Dinoguy1000#top|Talk⇒Dinoguy1000]]</sup></span> 02:02, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

:I was thinking something like "Template attribution", but most people don't know what [[wikipedia:attribution|attribution]] means either. Maybe "Template origin"? --&nbsp;[[User:Fandyllic|<span style="border-bottom:1px dotted; cursor:help;" title="Former WoWWiki Admin">Fandyllic</span>]]<small> ([[User talk:Fandyllic|talk]] &middot; [[Special:Contributions/Fandyllic|contr]])</small> 10:34 AM PST 2 Sep 2010

::I really don't care for "origin" either, since this template is meant to be used on ''every'' template on a wiki, regardless of whether those templates are from other wikis or not (and on a template's "home" wiki, the attribution bits will be hidden, since they wouldn't serve any purpose). <span style="white-space:nowrap;">「[[User:Dinoguy1000|<span style="color:#00f;">ダイノ</span><span style="color:#080;">ガイ</span>]][[Special:Contributions/Dinoguy1000|<span style="color:#F90;">千?!</span>]]」<sup>[[wikipedia:Help:IJP|?]] · [[User talk:Dinoguy1000#top|Talk⇒Dinoguy1000]]</sup></span> 02:02, September 3, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
:::It can't be used on ''every'' template since some are not from Wikia wikis, unless you want to make it super complicated which would discourage its use. The problem won't be making the template, it will be getting people to use it. --&nbsp;[[User:Fandyllic|<span style="border-bottom:1px dotted; cursor:help;" title="Former WoWWiki Admin">Fandyllic</span>]]<small> ([[User talk:Fandyllic|talk]] &middot; [[Special:Contributions/Fandyllic|contr]])</small> 5:06 PM PST 3 Sep 2010
 
 
::::Of course, if it's not from a Wikia wiki, people should be using the proper attribution template anyways, and since they'll be copying a dozen-plus templates for anything from Wikipedia anyways, they might as well throw [[wikipedia:Template:Documentation subpage]] and its /doc on the stack too. I had no intention of supporting this type of usage in this template. <span style="white-space:nowrap;">「[[User:Dinoguy1000|<span style="color:#00f;">ダイノ</span><span style="color:#080;">ガイ</span>]][[Special:Contributions/Dinoguy1000|<span style="color:#F90;">千?!</span>]]」<sup>[[wikipedia:Help:IJP|?]] · [[User talk:Dinoguy1000#top|Talk⇒Dinoguy1000]]</sup></span> 05:02, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

All of these parameters, with the exception of the interwiki prefix (I am not aware of any magic word which will return the interwiki prefix of a Wikia wiki; if one exists, please point it out!), can be automatically added by the [[Template:Documentation/preload|documentation preload template]]. I am not sure, however, whether the parameters should be named, and if so, what names should be used (and if not, what order the parameters should be required in). <span style="white-space:nowrap;">「[[User:Dinoguy1000|<span style="color:#00f;">ダイノ</span><span style="color:#080;">ガイ</span>]][[Special:Contributions/Dinoguy1000|<span style="color:#F90;">千?!</span>]]」<sup>[[wikipedia:Help:IJP|?]] · [[User talk:Dinoguy1000#top|Talk⇒Dinoguy1000]]</sup></span> 20:11, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

== Wording ==
 
Any thoughts or suggestions on the wording? Should any of the statements be rearranged, or is there any other information which the template should convey? <span style="white-space:nowrap;">「[[User:Dinoguy1000|<span style="color:#00f;">ダイノ</span><span style="color:#080;">ガイ</span>]][[Special:Contributions/Dinoguy1000|<span style="color:#F90;">千?!</span>]]」<sup>[[wikipedia:Help:IJP|?]] · [[User talk:Dinoguy1000#top|Talk⇒Dinoguy1000]]</sup></span> 02:02, September 3, 2010 (UTC)
