TemplatesEdit

I took a look at your subpages, and noticed the pw template. We currently have a template to be placed on the boards of new users, it is called Welcome. Please note that the later template is far more complete. While custom welcome templates are not prohibited, it would be greatly appreciated if you completed the "pw" template for the sake of new users.

The {{pw}} template also has another flaw. I looked at the template, you used the {{PAGENAME}} template for direct address. The problem is, on a user's board, the "PAGENAME" is "index.php"
I do not know of a way to correct this with a higher level of code, if it is even possible. You may wish to add a manipulative by having the source read as follows:
Welcome, {{{1}}}, to Halopedia! If you need any he...
By doing this, you can type {{pw|User's name}} in order to make it address the user properly. Pryo 'Zarkum, [iTalk] [iWork] [iWrite] 23:31, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
If you refresh the page once it will say the users name and stay like it. -- PATX
Yes I understand that. But if this is the very first message someone is getting, they aren't going to think "I should refresh it!" And quite frankly, it really isn't that hard use the {{{1}}} manipulative. Pryo 'Zarkum, [iTalk] [iWork] [iWrite] 19:05, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
OK well once I am done putting more info on the template. I will considerchanging it. Anything else wrong with me stuff? -- PATX
Well, I would recommend that you know you're way around a bit more before actually using a custom welcome template. Not that you can't make the template, but there are a few thing you don't know/understand. Not all new users ask completely retarded questions (most do), we get new users from other wikis. If you make something custom like that, you better make sure you know anything they could possibly ask. Pryo 'Zarkum, [iTalk] [iWork] [iWrite] 17:16, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
And what could a new user want to know that I do not know. Who the admins are. How to make userboxes or how to put them on your page. I have been doing this since I got here and I have been able to answer all the questions asked by new users. -- PATX
Believe it or not, not every new user is an idiot. I've been doing this for a long time, far longer than you. Often time, we get users from other wikis who already know a lot. And making userboxes is nothing. Unless you can work advnaced div off the top of your head, I would suggest you learn a bit. Pryo 'Zarkum, [iTalk] [iWork] [iWrite] 17:38, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Really. Wow I did not know that not all users are idiots. And I know plenty about div. So I thank you for warning me of my templates flaws but I do not think this should continue. I will put more info on my template when I get time. But for now I am banned for telling a sockpuppet to f*** off. Thank you for your concerns. -- PATX
I have changed the template to this. -- PATX 00:10, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Template namespace restrictions Edit

You are hereby banned from editing the template namespace. Your continual creation of new userboxes, duplicate deletion and welcome templates has become disruptive to this project. Further editing of the template namespace without prior approval from myself will result in an immediate one week ban. These restrictions will remain in place until November 1st, 2008. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 05:12, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Furthermore, the {{vandal}} template is, and has always been, restricted to administrators. Do not place this on user pages. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 05:21, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Look the only two templates I want is my friend userbox and my welcome template. And you had no real right to delete ALL of them just the ones taht were never used. So now thanks to you about 50 users will have a message from me saying Template:Pw. — PATX 15:02, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
No you may not have them back. You can start making useful contributions, or you can leave. — Manticore Fleet Admiral [ AdminIRCHOTMBot ] 03:14, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
Ok fine -- PATX 11:29, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
