Nathan - My first advice is to go to WP:TM, the template info page. What kind of template are you looking to make? Most likely there's a template similar to the one you want to make that you can pattern your work off of. Editting a page that has one or more templates on it causes the list of transcluded template to be created be low the "Save page" button, and clicking on the link will take you to the template, and then you can edit it to get its source. All templates are in the Template: namespace, so {{foo}} would be created at [[template:foo]].

Good luck! - UtherSRG 20:48, Jun 8, 2005 (UTC)

Actually, I wasn't... I saw the link to the article from your user page. Googling seems to come up with some reasonable hits, although the number of hits is fairly small. I didn't think it's vanity, but now that I actually look at the links, I'm thinking it is. - UtherSRG July 6, 2005 00:47 (UTC)


I have you on my watchlist, in case you reply to me on your talk page instead of on mine... so I saw that he vandalized you. Sad that he's from Allendale... I used to live there. I've been an admin now for longer than I've not been. And you can see now how to deal with an article in the wrong language.... someone else has properly tagged it. - UtherSRG July 7, 2005 03:03 (UTC)

Please take a look at the recent edits to this article. - UtherSRG July 7, 2005 12:10 (UTC)

Vandalism warning[edit]

Mrendo, thank you for the prompt notification! I warned the anon user on his Talk page and he appears to have taken heed. If he continues vandalizing, I will block him. In the future, you can also use Wikipedia:Vandalism in progress and Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism to warn of vandalous behaviour. Thank you, and happy wikying! --FCYTravis 8 July 2005 04:23 (UTC)

Protected Holosoth[edit]

Hi there, I have protected Holosoth and put a placeholder comment there, so it won't be recreated or defaced. Thanks. Fuzheado | Talk 22:04, 9 July 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Hello Mr. Endo. This is the Brand New User who wrote the entry you spotted on BEDLINOG. I won't write too much else before you confirm that I have written this in the correct area. Apologies if I haven't. I have a username of jazborocketman. You could, perhaps, write in my new talk page or I will check out yours later. Thanks Jaz

Dera Mr. Endo,Thanks for your entry in my new user talk page.I don't have a great deal of spare time these days but, like you, I'm finding the wikipedia site of great interest so I probably will be getting involved at some point. I will read and digest all the introductory information and then get stuck in but just to say thankyou for being such a helpful and congenial guide at the outset. User:jazborocketman P.S. I will expand my user page a fraction so you have a basic idea of who I am.

Musician vandalism[edit]

I've made what I think are appropriate fixes for this; I've reverted Tom Petty (IMDB and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame agree) and I've updated Mike Campbell to 1950 (and noted that IMDB and R&RHoF disagree in an inline comment). - UtherSRG 12:42, July 12, 2005 (UTC)

Mods to Protected Areas template[edit]

I made some encoding changes to Template:Protected Area Table, please take a look, and see my comments on the talk page. — Eoghanacht talk 21:00, 4 October 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Protected areas template[edit]

Yeah, I didn't know a template existed, or if I did, I must have not understood the use of it so I simply redid the HTML with wiki mark in National Parks. There are still about 1,000 articles that can be written yet involving national forests, wilderness areas, national mounments, U.S. Fish and wildlife areas...etc. and only a couple of them have the wiki mark infobox. Don't hesitate to contribute and I could use some further discussion on this as I didn't see a link to a template that would have made it a lot easier than cutting and pasting the wiki mark. --MONGO 18:28, 10 October 2005 (UTC)[reply]

I have asked a couple of people to look at the template and make suggestions to its programming prior to it becoming the "official" protected area infobox. See Template talk:Protected Area Table and Wikipedia:WikiProject Protected Areas/U.S. Infobox Proposals (2005). — Eoghanacht talk 20:25, 14 October 2005 (UTC)[reply]

World Heritage template[edit]

Hi! I created a template for World Heritage Sites: {{Infobox World Heritage Site}}. Since many of the protected areas are also recognized as World Heritage Sites, I thought that it will be appropriate to forward this template here, and hopefully, for the community to help improve the template. Someone mentioned that the footnotes are unclear (i.e. why the need to emphasize "official" there). It's because the official name (or the name as inscribed on the List) is different from what we usually know. And the Region also has footnote to tackle specifically the classification of those regions which may fall ambiguously between two continents (e.g. those in Russia, Turkey, Cyprus, etc.). In addition, I think that the info provided in the template is much like a jargon for most readers since it box is more of use for internal references in the World Heritage program. I hope that the community will help improve the template and make it more relevant to the readers of wikipedia in general. Thanks. Joey80 13:40, 20 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]


It's tough catching dynamic IP abusers. I'll see what I can do.... - UtherSRG (talk) 22:18, 30 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Notability of Epicurean (band)[edit]

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Epicurean (band), by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Epicurean (band) seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Epicurean (band), please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. To see the user who deleted the page, click here CSDWarnBot (talk) 02:01, 8 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]

  • Well, we need more than "Epicurean is a melodic death metal band from Minnesota." in order to have an article. The best thing to do would be to gather whatever information you can -- including reliable sources showing that the band is notable per WP:MUSIC -- before posting.
