Netoholic, I was surprised that you deleted the reference to the disputedpolicy template. The only good-faith reason I could think of that you would do so is because the template (which is highly useful) was not yet created. So I went ahead and copied and simplified the one from English Wikipedia, and then placed the link back here under "Other." I hope that you agree with me now that it is worth keeping. Happy editing! --Cromwellt|talk 03:42, 14 February 2006 (UTC)


Netoholic reverted all my changes to this page (without explanation). I believe that he only meant to remove my "Move to Wiktionary" template. Based on this assumption, I will redo the other changes, leaving that one for later, if ever. If I am mistaken, please let me know, and explain to me what is wrong with the other changes I made. These changes are:

  • addition of the proposed template, which he did not delete, only removed the reference
  • change from Template:db to Template:delreq, according to his recommendation
  • addition of Template:tl, which he did not delete, only removed the reference

Happy editing! --Cromwellt|talk|contribs 21:31, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

nostalgia and idea (policy --> hard rule; guideline --> soft rule)Edit

Boy, coming to this page and reading my own comments about old disagreements sure does take me back. I'm glad that that is all behind us now, though it is too bad that Netoholic chose to discontinue his participation here.

Anyway, I have another idea I wanted to propose here: the words "policy" and "guideline" are not simple English. On the other SE projects, we've changed those words to "hard rule" and "soft rule," respectively. What do you think?


it is clearer an article is a stub when its above the article

Doesn't SUBSTEdit

Could someone please fix {{subst:RepeatVandal}}? It doesn't substitute. Svanslyck (talk) 22:46, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Requesting templateEdit

Is this possible? Or can I just create a template? - I would like to create a template based on Template:Big Brother endgame for Big Brother articles. Thank you, AJona1992 (talk) 22:49, 5 July 2011 (UTC)
