This is epic phail, where is the original so we can try to copy it over properly? ħumanUser talk:Human 20:27, 15 December 2008 (EST)

It's amazingly complex on wp: contains about 10 sub templates as well as self references & all sorts of complexifactions. FORGET IT! Frohlich 20:56, 15 December 2008 (EST)
Most WP templates do that, yes. I think it's a form of territoriality - a way to keep other people from messing with "your" template. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:55, 16 December 2008 (EST)
So can we delete it? It's just a copy of how it is probably "used" at one article on WP. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:58, 16 December 2008 (EST)
Delete or move into userspace, as it's presumably still a work in progress. I doubt we need such a thing as there's only an odd one or two articles that would use it. If we do use it, I say make it much much simpler. €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 15:04, 21 January 2009 (EST)
I agree, there's no way on earth it would make sense to use the WP version. Too many red links to fill in, and of course, too many templates to copy over correctly. Starting again, perhaps using something like the RWW "stalkbox" as a framework, would make sense. Put a picture of the critter at the top, and just list the taxonomy (unlinked), and perhaps the extinct/etc. status. ħumanUser talk:Human 15:11, 21 January 2009 (EST)
Since it didn't work, I deleted it. --"ConservapediaUndergroundResistoris the chief bickerer 16:48, 21 January 2009 (EST)

Not again...[edit]

Then perhaps someone should help me get this to work. --"CURtalk 16:55, 11 February 2009 (EST)
Dude, you need to start from scratch. Copy a template from CP, they're all a lot simpler than WP ones, and adapt it to your "purpose". ħumanUser talk:Human 17:30, 11 February 2009 (EST)
My suggestion is to think first how many articles this will be used on & what it will add to them, then evaluate whether it's worth the effort. €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 17:33, 11 February 2009 (EST)
Very few and very little, probably. And I see a problem where every use will create seven redlinks for the taxonomic tree above the species. ħumanUser talk:Human 17:46, 11 February 2009 (EST)
