Cite MoDOT map / Missouri road map template

Similar to the ((Illinois road map)) and ((Cite MDOT map)) templates, this requested template would link to one of the old highway maps of Missouri. For now, it doesn't appear to exist yet. AlphaBeta135 (talk) 19:37, 18 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

AlphaBeta135 is this still a request you have? I could potentially do this, though I'd need some more information. Elliot321 (talk | contribs) 02:03, 25 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Swedish Royal Weddings

I would like to request the creation of a template for Swedish Royal Weddings. The only two subcategories for European Royal Weddings are that of British Royal Weddings and Swedish Royal Weddings. There is a very nice template for the British weddings, so I propose that the Swedes be given the same treatment.

 Done: Painting17, see Template:Swedish royal weddings. ~ Ase1estecharge-paritytime 12:57, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thank IP user

It's a template to thank IP address users. I know this template already exists but I'm suggesting a reworded version of it. Because all the templates that exist to thank IP users say thanks for help cleaning up vandalism. I think there should be one just to thank IP users for improving an article not cleaning up vandalism. Toad62 17:15, 24 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Toad62: ((Welcome-anon-constructive)) can do it with |art=page name. PrimeHunter (talk) 18:55, 24 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Oh thanks! I didn't know this one existed. Toad62 15:24, 25 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Yellow mechanical bird template

I'd like a template for the WikiLove message that I used here. I originally found it at User_talk:CheckIntentPlease, and as far as I know it was made by User:Deepfriedokra. Skarmory (talk • contribs) 01:00, 25 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Skarmory is there a reason you cannot create the template, if you have the code for it already? Elliot321 (talk | contribs) 02:02, 25 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I tried and quickly realized I have no idea how to code a template. I have the message code, but what I was doing was copying it from the talk page to other talk pages, and a template would probably make things easier. Skarmory (talk • contribs) 19:54, 25 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Skarmory, do you still need help? ~ Ase1estecharge-paritytime 12:45, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Aseleste, sorry for the late response, but yes, I do. Skarmory (talk • contribs) 02:22, 8 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
 Done @Skarmory: See ((subst:Yellow mechanical bird)). It's not exactly the same, though you could make (or request) a personalized one in your userspace.

AfroCROWD template

I'd like help creating Template:AfroCROWD. I tried drafting one based on Template:WIR, but am struggling with the complexity.

Here's my draft: User:Paul2520/sandbox2.

Like with Women in Red, this should allow us to track which event/date the article was created, or just be a catch-all for articles created as part of the WP:AfroCROWD project (if no date/event is provided). However, Women in Red seems to have a ton of specific/sub templates that I don't think AfroCROWD needs (at this time).

Thanks in advance! = paul2520 💬 21:30, 27 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Paul2520, I would like to know the problems you are having with it and how the template should be like in more specific details (perhaps you can give the full usage of the template). ~ Ase1estecharge-paritytime 13:06, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, Aseleste. Biggest problem has been not understanding all the code behind the Women in Red template.
The way I see it: (1) exist as a banner to illustrate that the article was started through the AfroCROWD project / at an AfroCROWD event.
(2) add the article to a category, perhaps the equivalent of Category:WikiProject Women in Red articles.
(3) ties in with (2), add the article to a sub-category rather than a category, if year parameter is given.
(4) maybe just link to the page of a specific event, if one is listed.
I think that covers it, but I'll share this request with others at the event to weigh-in. = paul2520 💬 14:22, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Paul2520, from these four points only, I think the Template:WIR basically matches what you need. The one important difference I have noticed is that all event pages for WP:WIR are stored under Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red/Meetup, while WP:AfroCROWD seems to store them in several places. Apart from that, everything else seems the same. ~ Ase1estecharge-paritytime 15:25, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Width of templates for listing old XfDs

I've been trying to get this to work on the sandbox of Template:Oldtfdlist without much luck. Currently, the width is static, so no matter how much text is inside the template, it takes up the same amount of space on the page. I think it would be better if the width was dynamic, but didn't go above the width it's currently always at. I tried "width:auto" "max-width:50%", but apparently max-width overrides width, so that didn't work. I tried "max-width:50%" by itself, but that didn't work either because it doesn't become as wide as the static template is right now with lots of text. Can someone who knows what they're doing help out with this? Thanks, DesertPipeline (talk) 06:24, 25 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@DesertPipeline:  Done with Special:Diff/1014140108. Let me know if this is not what you meant. ~ Aseleste (t, e | c, l) 11:58, 25 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
