Hi, welcome to Wikia Templates! Thanks for your edit to the Template:Test/doc page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- KyleH (Talk) 03:07, 30 April 2009

Re:Trouble Copying? Edit

On my wiki but I don't like the template. And the one that I do like I can't get to work in my pages. It shows up in my syntax. Is there something I'm doing wrong? --KiumaruHamachi 13:18, January 28, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi

You changed it. Not a good idea unless you know what you are doing. Maybe not even then! Seems to be fine now. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 13:48, January 28, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, Thanks. It took me a while to figure it out how to use it but thanks for putting it in my wiki. --KiumaruHamachi 13:49, January 28, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi

It's almost as if you want to discourage people from learning template editing! --Yoshord 23:57, January 28, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for Wasting you Time (Event Template [was what I had originally]) Edit

Nevermind (I deleted my question) I'll ask someone else... I believe I bugged you enough and I don't want to bug you anymore. Good day. --KiumaruHamachi 02:35, February 13, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi

Oh sorry about that. But the template that says Second Wizarding War and has the picture from the 7th American Release is what I mean by Event Template. I don't know what their really called, if they even have a name, but I'll take a look at the WoW Wiki Tempaltes and such. Thanks by the way (or btw). --KiumaruHamachi 02:50, February 13, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi
Didn't know that. Thanks for the 411. I should look if this site has "Battle Infobox." Thanks again. --KiumaruHamachi 03:11, February 13, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi
I found a template that will work for me. here it is. Now I need help copying it into my wiki. Do you think you can lend ahand again, please? --KiumaruHamachi 03:34, February 13, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi
Put your mouse on the sidebar at "Wikia Templates". The first item on the submenu should give you much better information than I can. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 03:57, February 13, 2010 (UTC)
Um...^^; all of this is confusing... I have no idea where or how to start it or put it. --KiumaruHamachi 04:03, February 13, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi

If you can't find and understand http://templates.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_copy_templates_to_your_wiki you need more help than I can give. You should post on the help desk. I'm off babysitting shortly, so I can't help any more today. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 04:39, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for the help (I hope I didn't get in the way of your babysitting, if I did: I'm terribly sorry) KiumaruHamachi 04:40, February 13, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi

Template:SPW on documentation pages? Edit

Hello Robin Patterson, would you care to explain the reasoning behind your decision for {{SPW}} to only display on template documentation subpages? We're wondering about it over at Template talk:SPW#Bug, and would appreciate some clarification. Thanks! =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 17:52, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

As I have now said elsewhere, it was NOT my decision or even my idea. I have a feeling someone should read page histories more carefully before acting on assumptions. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 04:08, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

Criteria for moving templates to starter Edit

I noticed you were a sysop on w:c:starter. Are there any specific criteria or process for getting new templates on to starter? -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 10:27 PM PST 25 Aug 2010

If I can butt in, I can say immediately that updating Starter with the current version of {{Documentation}} from here would be good, though it would require us to roll a better-suited preload template and cut a few things from the documentation. {{T}} could also be updated. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 08:53, August 26, 2010 (UTC)
Robin put a response User_talk:Fandyllic#Starter on my talk page.
If the a template needs to be significantly changed to make it ready for starter, I would say it isn't ready for starter.
I will think about how to get the ball rolling on presenting candidates for starter and some process for agreeing to move them. I may have to turn on forums here. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 2:21 PM PST 26 Aug 2010
Forum:Index is already setup. I will put a link under Community on the sidebar. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 2:24 PM PST 26 Aug 2010
Yeah, I knew about his response there. ;)
The template itself is ready to be copied; I could have an appropriate preload ready to go after 10-15 minutes. This would be made easier with the creation of an analog to Wikipedia's Template:Documentation subpage automatically adding the category to documentation pages (since we wouldn't need the <noinclude/> section anymore).
The forum would be a good venue for such discussion; probably the first one we should have would concern what templates to update and how to do so. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 03:20, August 27, 2010 (UTC)
Suitably-named forum now created, starting with a copy of the above. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 04:08, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

Your Taxoboxes blog post Edit

Hello there! I am cleaning up the Infobox templates, and your blog on Taxoboxes is the last non-template left in the category. Would you please remove that blog post from the category? I would be grateful! 8) Lady Aleena (talk) 05:39, November 14, 2017 (UTC)
