Protection[edit]

I have protected this template from edits by anonymous users, because changes to this template will show up in several well exposed places, especially on policy pages. -- Duesentrieb(?!) 19:26, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

There are 176K links to it. There were three edits to it in the last half hour, and the job queue is toast as a result. Please protect it completely and never change it again. -- Tim Starling 17:28, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
Done. -- Duesentrieb(?!) 21:29, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Now there's 2,210,798 links. I so want to tweak some whitespace or something. :) Seriously though, is this still a big issue because 2.2M is a helluva lot more 176K. Like what would happen if I just made one edit? (not saying I want to - just curious.) - Rocket000 11:41, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

preload parameter[edit]

How about adding preload parameter? It can be helpful for translation of POTD description from localized Main Page. – Kwj2772 (msg) 05:03, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support! I propose following code:
[{{fullurl:{{{1|{{FULLPAGENAME}}}}}|action=edit{{#if:{{{2|{{{preload|}}}}}}|&preload={{{2|{{{preload|}}}}}}|}}}} +/−]

Replacing with a more appropriate symbol[edit]

In 18 years of website development, I've never before seen "+/-" used to mean "edit". "+/-" has 2 recognized meanings:

  1. uncertainty range
  2. relative score statistic in sports

When I saw this used on a file page, I was mystified as to it's meaning. After scratching my head, I decided that it meant hide/show the associated content. I was even more confused when I clicked on it and got dumped on the edit page. Would anyone object if I replace this with a small pencil icon? Here's a nice one: Red Pencil Icon.png Kaldari (talk) 18:07, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Nevermind, I see that this is usually used at the end of a list, in which case it is at least understandable. I should change non-list uses to {{Edit-int}}. Kaldari (talk) 22:51, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
