I am sorry if I have caused you any inconvenience. However, I am adding all Templates on the wiki to a Category:Template. Because of this, I have to add [[Category:Template]] to each Template -- hence the spamming of the log. Is it okay with you if I finish up (I will then be done spamming, I promise.)?

Monsters are green. <nowiki>{{note}}</nowiki> this is an in-line note, to remind you that some monsters are orangey-purple.

Duncan, it is not really that helpful to add Templates to a Template category. They are all in their own namespace and it is easy to find them using this link: http://www.funtoo.org/index.php?title=Special%3AAllPages&from=&to=&namespace=10

The following includes the text passed to the template, and uses a table to stop the text flowing round the icon. These always force a newline before and after the note.

Yeah, probably. In MediaWiki, generally any "Foo:" (with colon) prefix means it's in a separate namespace. This means it's easy to find all pages in a namespace using the All Pages link. Also note that you did this wrong. If you look at all the pages in [[:Category:Templates]], you'll notice that all the packages are in there. If you want to add a template to a category, but not the page that it's used on, then you need to put the category tag inside a <noinclude> </noinclude> section. That section will only apply to the template itself.

I have deleted the [[Category:Templates]] line from all of the templates that I screwed up. While I was looking around, I found some old templates that seemed to be unused and tagged them for deletion.

Duncan, it is not really that helpful to add Templates to a Template category. They are all in their own namespace and it is easy to find them using this link: http://www.funtoo.org/index.php?title=Special%3AAllPages&from=&to=&namespace=10

I did not know about this namespaces tool. Should I remove all of the templates from that category that I created?

Yeah, probably. In MediaWiki, generally any "Foo:" (with colon) prefix means it's in a separate namespace. This means it's easy to find all pages in a namespace using the All Pages link. Also note that you did this wrong. If you look at all the pages in Category:Templates, you'll notice that all the packages are in there. If you want to add a template to a category, but not the page that it's used on, then you need to put the category tag inside a section. That section will only apply to the template itself.

Moreover, this causes any page using a template to be in the template category as [[Category:Template]] is included in the source code of the page. By the way, I wonder if this is a good behavior. Indeed, you can't link to a category without including the page in this category. I just figured out one can use [[:Category:Template]] for that purpose -- Pytony (talk)

Status of Category:Templates

I have deleted the line from all of the templates that I screwed up. While I was looking around, I found some old templates that seemed to be unused and tagged them for deletion.
