Dialog-warning-orange.svg Note: This template is used on a lot of pages. In order not to put too much load on the servers, edits should be kept to a bare minimum. Please discuss proposed changes on the talk page first.
  • Editing a template causes all pages that use the template to be re-rendered. If the template is used often, this can put a lot of load on the servers since it fills up the job queue.
  • Keep in mind that templates that are used on file description pages also show up on other wikis.
  • This page has been protected from editing to prevent vandalism. Only administrators can edit it. Get their attention by placing {{edit protected}} at the talk page.
