Template for objectionable/disturbing content or external link?[edit]

In a recent Wikinews article (of unknown authenticity), a message about possibly disturbing content was attached to an external link pointing to a video. Would it be helpful to have a template message for possibly objectionable content, modeled after the warning at the top of the Abu Ghraib torture story? - McCart42 19:52, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)

More categorizing[edit]

I'm not very happy with the current info on TM's. A mile long list is still not categorized, info is unclear and there are no greater patterns: TM's seem to be generated at random. Could someone find order to this chaos? And perhaps develop a TM Policy to regulate the creation of new TM's? -- Redge (Talk) 16:23, 21 Mar 2005 (UTC)

"Original Reporting" messages and similar sideboxes should be inline with the article[edit]

If we leave these boxes on the side in a seperate section, it looks ugly and wastes space. If we allow them to be inline with the article, the text can use the other half and space is saved. That's why I created the template like that: so it can be placed inline with articles. —MESSEDROCKER (talk) 14:09, 26 February 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Template categorization[edit]

I noticed Template:Infobox Wackynews on an article, but I can't find if there are other similar infoboxes. Maybe templates should be categorized using <noinclude> so editors can browse them. (SEWilco 21:08, 30 October 2007 (UTC))[reply]

Looks like there aren't many Infoboxes. (SEWilco 21:10, 30 October 2007 (UTC))[reply]
