requested edit[edit]

{{editprotected}} Please modify this template to have a similar look to {{uncategorized}}. Od Mishehu 11:09, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

It looks to me that tl:uncategorized should be changed to look like this one. Most of the other cleanup boxes are standard width and have an icon. CMummert · talk 12:07, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Declined as per CMummert. Aquarius • talk 16:46, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Template:Uncategorized and Template:Uncategorizedstub should match[edit]

Please express your opinion about the matter at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Categories/uncategorized#Template:Uncategorized and Template:Uncategorizedstub should match. Od Mishehu 09:04, 2 August 2007 (UTC) {{editprotected}}

An opinion was expressed that {{uncategorized}} is the one which should be kept the same, and this one should be changed. Since in almost two weeks no one objected to it, please fix this one. Od Mishehu 11:40, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Cheers. --MZMcBride 03:36, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
Anyone object if this is redacted a little more? It's still significantly wider/wordier than its counterpart, in particular the "Please remove this tag after categorizing, but not before." (They do sometimes get erroneously removed, but whether this helps seems doubtful, and at worst it just results in some 'cyclic tagging'.) Alai 05:39, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
This discussion is now at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Categories/uncategorized/Archive_1#Template:Uncategorized_and_Template:Uncategorizedstub_should_match. I agree they should "match" but only in a loose stylistic way. They should not strictly match. The wording should be appropriate to each. I am going to propose the wording be changed for the stub template now. Jason Quinn (talk) 16:32, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Modification per Wikipedia:Article message boxes[edit]

{{editprotected|Modification per Wikipedia:Article message boxes}} Please fix this message to comply with Wikipedia:Article message boxes. Note that {{uncategorized}} already has been fixed. Od Mishehu 12:20, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Changed type from growth to style as per {{uncategorized}} and WT:AMB. KTC 11:51, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

This code should do it:

{}|{}=article|Image=image|Template=template|Category=category|page}} is [[WP:CAT|uncategorized]].<br /><small>Please help [{}|action=edit}} improve this {{#switch:{}|{}=article|Image=image|Template=template|Category=category|page}}] by adding it to one or more categories, in addition to a stub category. ([[Wikipedia:Categorization FAQ#How do I add an article to a category?|how?]])<br>Please remove this tag after categorizing, but not before. {{#if:{{}}|<br><small>This article has been tagged since '''{{}}'''.</small>|{{#if:{{}}|<br><small>This article has been tagged since '''{{}}'''.</small>}}}} }}<includeonly>{{#if:{{}}|[[Category:Uncategorized stubs from {{}}]]|{{#if:{{}}|[[Category:Uncategorized stubs from {{}}]]|[[Category:Uncategorized stubs]]}}}}</includeonly><noinclude> {} {{{}/doc}} <!-- Add categories and interwikis to the /doc subpage, not here! --> </noinclude>

Change wording?[edit]

The current wording for the template is:

I propose it is changed to

This wording more closely captures the intention of the template and avoid logical problems related to the question if stub-categories are categories or not. Jason Quinn (talk) 16:39, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps this version is slightly better:

Call it version 2. Jason Quinn (talk) 01:55, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Best so far. However, I think that a wikilink on the first use of the word stub would be useful. --Redrose64 (talk) 17:07, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Here's version 3.

I added just a link to stub. Jason Quinn (talk) 05:10, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Fine by me. --Redrose64 (talk) 15:22, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
