Because this wiki will be copied by other Wikia users, I think it should be a firm policy here that we do not allow a template here to have the same name as one on Wikipedia or the Starter Pages Wikia if it has a different function.
Compatibility with Starter Pages WikiaEdit
This wiki acts partly as a seedbed for templates to be tested and discussed before they are added to "Starter". See Template:SPW/doc and Category:Not on Starter Pages Wikia for some notes about how we can keep track of which ones are here and not on Starter and how we can discuss whether any of them are eventually recommended for addition to Starter.
To minimise problems, every template on here that has the same name as one on Starter should have the same function and ideally the same content unless we can see an improvement to the content (which could be recommended as an improvement on Starter). Part of the reason is so that a new one going onto Starter from here will have been tested with exactly the same other templates as it will use on Starter.
January 2018 policy thoughts Edit
Lady Aleena asked me for my thoughts on the recent updates to this page - they seem pretty reasonable to me, and I've no objections.
Also, as this is only a vaguely official wiki, probably worth me noting that I have no particular concerns about non-staff taking decisions over the direction of the wiki, as long as it doesn't turn into something weird like a meme wiki :) I'm happy to provide some input, and I can say FANDOM has no particular special plans for this wiki in the near future. -- Kirkburn (talk) 19:30, January 17, 2018 (UTC)
