Protection[edit]

Why is this template protected? --Splat5572 (talk) 02:52, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

"Highly transcluded template". Probably not necessary though. Martin 14:50, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Meta Banner[edit]

In the sandbox is a conversion of this banner to use the {{WPBannerMeta}}. Are there any questions or concerns about implementing this? Martin 14:51, 15 January 2009 (UTC) {{editprotected}} Please replace this template with the copy in the sandbox. Martin 22:09, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Done--Aervanath (talk) 15:47, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

infobox parameter[edit]

Many project banners have a need-infobox parameter. Should one be added to this one? Griffinofwales (talk) 20:16, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Edit request on 12 October 2014[edit]

Can WikiProjects Long Island and New York City be added? The template is missing these. Thanks. – Epicgenius (talk) 00:39, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Not done Epicgenius Please include the complete and specific change to be incorporated. You can use the Template:WikiProject New York/sandbox page to validate. After ready, reactivate the edit request above. — xaosflux Talk 02:47, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Edit request as part of merge for inactive and semi-active wikiprojects[edit]

 Implemented
:
by MSGJ with Special:diff/939106120

Please alter the template to include the subprojects that have been added to the current draft version in the sandbox with output visible on the testcases page, the net diff is this. This change is being effected in order to implement the consensus for WikiProject merger reached at Deep web talk:WikiProject New York (state)#Merging inactive and semi-active WikiProjects. The subprojects have been ordered alphabetically in the template for organizational convenience; for better or for worse, the images were taken directly from the existing wikiproject banners.

Courtesy pings to Muboshgu, as the driving force behind this change to offer the opportunity for further input, and to epicgenius who made a similar edit request above, albeit including the NYC Wikiproject as well, which was not included in this go-around as it is currently active and self-sustaining.

I should be logged-in, albeit periodically away from the computer for significant stretches, for the next two-three hours if there are any additional questions. If this happens reasonably soon I will update the documentation to match, otherwise either someone else will need to do it, or I will get it done tomorrow. (please ping on reply)

Alright, well I'm packing it in for now, I'm confident I'll have time tomorrow, therefore, I will update the documentation if need be in 24 hours.

Quantocius Quantotius, I wouldn't worry about it. It sometimes might take days for a template edit request to be replied to. epicgenius (talk) 04:09, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
@epicgenius: Thanks, having done some software QA myself, I should've known that this would take longer to review than to write, and I did miss a bit of extraneous code that should've been removed, so clearly a {{self-minnow}} is in order. In any event, the documentation update is now  Completed.
𝒬𝔔 21:20, 4 February 2020 (UTC)

Great! So what's the next step? We need to make it so that pages tagged with the inactive or semi-active WP gets properly converted. I'm not sure how to do that. – Muboshgu (talk) 21:55, 4 February 2020 (UTC)

@Muboshgu: If this works like I think it does, the subproject templates should be converted to wrapper templates, as has been done with Template:WikiProject Cornell University, once that's done AnomieBOT will go around and substitute all the existing entries assuming the templates are properly added to Category:Deep web templates to be automatically substituted. I'd start it now, but I've never done this before so I want to double check that my research is correct, I'm also dealing with other things so I'm constantly getting into and out of the computer chair right now, and I don't want to feel rushed as I go through this, however I can probably do it next week if no one else has gotten around to it. The only issue I foresee is if a page has Template:WikiProject New York (state) on it already, in which case a straightforward substitution would result in duplicate entries (the existing + the newly substituted entry); I'm uncertain if the bot has been programmed to handle that kind of situation, which is of course another reason to review all documentation first.
