[[Image:Symbol support vote.svg|15px]] '''Support'''


[[Image:Symbol support vote.svg|15px]] '''{{{1|Support}}}'''

This will allow users to have custom text with the icon such as {{support|Strong support}} and whatnot. – Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 15:57, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

BTW, there's {{SSupport}}. Rocket000 16:02, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
Which is silly when we have parameters and defaults for a reason :) – Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 15:53, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Icon change[edit]


Change "Symbol support vote.svg Support" to "Pictogram voting support.svg Support" (with no quotes). --Mr. Mario (talk) 01:26, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

No thanks.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 05:12, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Why? --Mr. Mario (talk) 00:32, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
Because it's an unnecessary change that would burden the servers, and doesn't match all our other indicator templates (on this project and numerous others). Plus it's hideous.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 15:48, 12 December 2008 (UTC)


I would like to recommend an internationalization of this template, since some others used in the same context (e.g Template:Question) are translated. This gives a strange picture side by side. So I suggest using the following instead of the text "Support":

| de = Befürwortung:
| en = Support:

what expands to:


other languages to be completed. The same request is valid for Template:Oppose and Template:Request. -- Dr. Schorsch (talk) 14:39, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

I'd love to do this, but this was already denied because we hit technical limits. You may however use localized templates, like {{Pro}} or {{Pour}}, depending on where you use it. Template:Request might be localizable though, because it's not used that often. --The Evil IP address (talk) 15:54, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
Which technical limit is actually hit? LangSwitch uses no expensive parser functions. --Slomox (talk) 16:11, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
The post-expand limit. Also, it makes substitution useless. Rocket000 (talk) 21:50, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
And what would be an example of a page that would hit the post-expand limit if {{Support}} would be localized? --Slomox (talk) 18:55, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
Probably none by itself, but in combination with other vote templates, it makes every page where these templates are used (RfAs, DRs, etc.) very heavy. For example, I run my bot occasionally on DR pages just in order to see them all. We are always past the limit unless substitution is used. Besides, I don't think someone's words should change. We use symbols for a reason. Rocket000 (talk) 19:42, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
If you don't want your words to change, don't use templates. That's the basic meaning of templates: being able to alter strings used in various places from a central point. --Slomox (talk) 21:04, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
I don't want others to change. I like seeing multiple languages in votes. It shows the awesome multilingual nature of Commons. The meaning is always clear thanks to the symbols. There's no good reason for translating these unless you simply hate seeing anything that's not a language you speak. Rocket000 (talk) 23:44, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
This argument makes just as much sense as if I was saying that you oppose localization cause you hate every other language than English. Seriously, you call me a hater? I mean, you do realize that this discussion is in English, do you? --Slomox (talk) 00:47, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
This is different than other templates, you know that. And I said nothing about English (assuming you would redirect other language's support templates here after auto-translation). I wasn't necessarily implying there's anything wrong with being a "hater". It comes down to a personal preference. If I was insinuating anything, it's that auto-translating is sometimes done for the sake of itself rather than any practical benefit that may or may not result. It's like saying since auto-translating is a good idea for some things, it's a good idea for everything. I just don't see the benefit here, only the negative.
