Where would Template:Wikify go? --Green Dragon 09:49, 26 March 2007 (MDT)

Wherever {{stub}} would go - I would vote for the very top, above everything else (even any Table of Contents templates). Armond 15:29, 26 March 2007 (MDT)
The term "Wikify" within the context of standardizing the page layouts seems a bit misleading. It makes it sound like the page needs wiki-markup. Many of the pages tagged with the Template:Wikify have plenty of wiki-markup; they just don't conform to the sites standards for page layouts. —Sledged (talk) 16:05, 26 March 2007 (MDT)
I was thinking that too. Perhaps Template:Cleanup or something? Armond 16:09, 26 March 2007 (MDT)
I say keep the same name as the template was taken from Wikipedia (with the same wording left intact). If you want to change it to make it sound nicer and be more correct to D&D Wiki's use of the template, please do, however a re-naming may be too much work... I say just change the wording on the template. --Green Dragon 16:11, 26 March 2007 (MDT)
Wow... I just found Template:Cleanup... Maybe re-word it more like that (with that image as well)? --Green Dragon 22:45, 27 March 2007 (MDT)
I just added it to this page — so we will know how this page looks with all the possible templates. Also, I like the wording of it more now. --Green Dragon 23:30, 29 March 2007 (MDT)
I like the wording much better now. It leaves open the possibility that the author simply missed something instead of being a complete loser. However, I'd prefer, "This article may require cleanup to conform to D&D Wiki's layout standards." --Cúthalion 20:44, 2 April 2007 (MDT)
I also like the idea of a cleanup page, to give people a hint of what needs to be changed. The rule is, you can't use the template unless you explain why. Although it would work just as well to put the explanation on the discussion page. --Cúthalion 20:44, 2 April 2007 (MDT)
But back to the location question, what's the rationale for putting this template and others like it at the beginning of the page? I think it should go the same place as the {{stub}} template -- at the end. For the random user browsing the site, this is the first thing they see, and it provides no useful information, only a turn-off (fortunately, not as nasty as the old one). --Cúthalion 20:44, 2 April 2007 (MDT)
Okay... I changed the wording (got rid of the may because if this template is present it does need to be cleaned up). As a side comment I see no reason for a page like cleanup as categories already cover that (albeit not as well). Anyway, I agree with putting this template at the end. So, how does it look now? Better? --Green Dragon 14:20, 5 April 2007 (MDT)
(Reset indent) Urgh. I'm of the opinion that templates like these should be as high as applicable, as that shows what parts of the thing need work so you can easily get to them (hit the edit button for that section, fix it up, and remove the template all in one go) and it just seems more appropriate. I'm just one voice, though. Armond 15:55, 9 April 2007 (MDT)
Well, I'm two voices, and we like it better this way. No, we don't. Yes, we do. Who asked you?
I like the idea of the banner linking to the section(s) that need work. How would you implement that without making it prohibitively complicated? --Cúthalion 16:33, 9 April 2007 (MDT)
I like the main templates being at the bottom of the page. The average user will not know how to format a class and a more advanced user will know to look at either the categories or the bottom when determining if the class needs to be wikfied. Also, I changed the wording around—is it better now? --Green Dragon 13:00, 10 April 2007 (MDT)
