Template talk:Edit request

ParameterEdit

Why do the instructions in this template's documentation and elsewhere tell us to use a parameter ("{{editprotected|...}}"), but the template code never uses that parameter anywhere and doesn't display it? Fut.Perf. 07:32, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

{{edit request|This should be displayed somewhere, but isn't.}}

Thank you for fixing my mistake in the heading on Talk:Main Page. If I'm reading the docs correctly here, it appears that you can specify how the page will show up in CAT:EP if you use the parameter setting... I'm not sure how that's useful though, or if the template even does that. I think the /doc page is editable if you'd like to remove that. Killiondude (talk) 18:49, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
This instruction came from Template:TemplateBox/layout. Is it now clearer? Or simply suggest a better wording. -- Rillke(q?) 12:29, 27 June 2013 (UTC)

Misleading ProtectionEdit

It Says It's Semi-Protected Even Though It's Fully Protected. This Is Not Your Ordinary Acid3 Fan. (My Talk Page) 23:37, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Er, I don't see anywhere where this page is claimed to be semi-protected. Can you clarify? JesseW (talk) 02:36, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

No parameter for when a request has been answeredEdit

This template needs a parameter that can be used by the editor answering the request, so as to disable the call for action (categorization) without removing the template from talk-page threads outright. The English Wikipedia versions of this template have an |answered= parameter. Currently, transclusions are being disabled with an unsightly hack. – voidxor 01:52, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

"Fulfill this request..." uses incorrect usernameEdit

The autogenerated edit-summary when using this button on the template sometimes includes the wrong username. See for example this edit as generated from this state of a talkpage: the request was by Editør but the edit-summary says LittleWink. The problem seems to be that the template uses {{REVISIONUSER}}, which is "the user who made the most recent edit to the page," so it is only correct if nobody else has edited the page after the request was made.
