Templatespace

Perhaps I've mentioned that I'm rather protective of templatespace. We have no graven policy regarding templates -- or much of anything, yet -- so please don't think I resort to authority; only to what appears to me to be good practice.

My immediate concern is the group of HDR-foo templates, e.g. Template:HDR training log. I'm afraid I don't see that these are of any benefit to the community as a whole. I'd like to ask you to consider moving them to your own userspace, or possibly to mainspace. I'm sure you already know that the template transclusion mechanism works equally well on all pages. If you need any help with the move, feel free to ask.

I see no problem with the templates {{edit}} and {{editsection}}; but it's not clear to me how they should be used. Would you be so kind as to document them? I have imported {{doctl}} for this purpose.

Sure, Bear, I understand. I thought by beginning all my special-purpose templates with HDR I was staying out of everyone's way, but I don't mind at all moving them into the mainspace. I'll change their names to begin HDRT (T for Template). With this naming convention, I'll only throw away one more character (the T) for the sake of staying out of people's way and another (the colon) to transclude the template from the mainspace. A very small price to pay (and I'm glad to pay it) for wiki community harmony!
As for documenting edit and editsection, sure. I'll be glad to do that. Thanks for drawing my attention to {{doctl}}. I'm glad you mentioned this now, because I was thinking about making some new templates! I'll try to get to these changes today.—GraemeMcRaetalk 10:43, 21 Nov 2005 (EST)
