Date[edit]

A date when the deletion was proposed would be nice to add to this (like Template:Wikify, etc). --Green Dragon 21:57, 24 April 2007 (MDT)

Added that. Is there some sort of code I can put in to make it take the date from the server or something? Armond 14:08, 25 April 2007 (MDT)
Not that I know of. You may want to ask Sledged. --Green Dragon 15:47, 25 April 2007 (MDT)
Only by putting five tildes (~~~~~) in the date field, but that gives both the date and time. —Sledged (talk) 10:29, 26 April 2007 (MDT)
Pwnt. Four wikis worth of information ftw. Will run over and apply to other templates. Forgot that it updates itself... Armond 23:23, 26 April 2007 (MDT)
{{subst:CURRENTDAY}} {{subst:CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{subst:CURRENTYEAR}} will give the date as static text:
10 May 2007

Updated. Thanks for helping with the template. Also, now all the current uses of this template need to be updated... --Green Dragon 10:30, 11 May 2007 (MDT)
Ooh, I didn't know those could be subst:'d... Thanks. --Armond (talk/contribs) 14:47, 11 May 2007 (MDT)
We forgot something (as an anon was nice enough to point out to me on another wiki - it will subst the date right into the template. I put the date in includeonly tags. Hopefully that'll do the trick. --Armond (talk/contribs) 15:09, 11 May 2007 (MDT)
Ok. This is getting really annoying. Is there any way to get a template to not substitute unless it's included? --Armond (talk/contribs) 15:18, 11 May 2007 (MDT)
For now pass the subst: as the date parameter. Copy/paste will make sure the date is entered. —Sledged (talk) 15:25, 11 May 2007 (MDT)
Anyway, sorry for not checking to see if it worked earlier and I am glad it works now (albeit not really as part of the template). Sorry. --Green Dragon 00:44, 12 May 2007 (MDT)
I got it (finally)! <noinclude></noinclude> tags around the {{subst: . The only problem is that it doesn't work with a normal inclusion for some reason, but it'll still add the page to Category:Candidates for Deletion, which is the important part (right? We check there for deletions instead of using whatlinkshere on this template, don't we?). --Armond (talk/contribs) 15:07, 16 May 2007 (MDT)

→Reverted indentation to one colon

I think we should keep Candidates for Deletion as the main area for deletions... Just my opinion. --Green Dragon 23:31, 16 May 2007 (MDT)
After second thought, it really is just a extra page with no purpose. I made all deletions have to go through this template, and changed the main deletion page to Category:Candidates for Deletion. --Green Dragon 13:34, 8 November 2008 (MST)
