Template talk:Retired

From RationalWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The template is for users who want their talk page to be "archived and protected from editing". But we don't protect the talk pages of retired users anyway. Check the log - there's only a few protected pages in the user talk namespace, mostly archives. & Most of the protected user pages are active users rather than retirees. Unless we agree that we're going to do this from here on out, we should probably just remove this clause from the template. ωεαşεζøίɗWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 20:43, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Sure, remove it, since protection doesn't do much good when almost everyone is a sysop anyway. ħumanUser talk:Human 20:45, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Edit request[edit]

While I do not intend to make use of the template, I have a sugestion to improve it: using the letter-spacing CSS parameter rather than manual spaces.

<center><div style="align: center; width: 50%; padding: 0.5em; border: solid 2px black; background-color: #eeeeee;">
'''<big style=letter-spacing:2em;padding-left:2em;>RETIRED</big>'''
<br>This user has requested that their pages be archived and left untouched.
<BR>This is due to a private decision to [[LANCB|leave RationalWiki and never come back.]]
<BR>Please honor their request.  ''([[User talk:{{{1|{{PAGENAME}}}}}|<font color="#222222">Inquiries here</font>]])''</div></center><noinclude>{{doc}}</noinclude>
