Template talk:Starpotential

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

I moved Template:Failedstarnomination to here, per a discussion at Wikitravel:Travellers'_pub#Stars_in_the_making. It's still not totally clear what Wikitravel:Star potential will develop into, but for now it's a more positive version for failed stars, and will probably expand into something to do with helping "Guide" quality articles through their last few steps before being nominated for star status - Cacahuate 20:40, 22 February 2007 (EST)

Link slush discussions[edit]

Bah, the {{FULLPAGENAME}} tag doesn't work since this template goes on the talk page, rather than the page itself. Does anyone know a way to auto-link the discussions on the slush pile from the template? If so, please restore my failed edit, with a workaround. --Peter Talk 23:38, 18 March 2008 (EDT)

More limited use of this template[edit]

Seeing now how strange this template looks on some pages... don't think we should apply it to every article that gets nominated.... maybe just those that are pretty darn close but need a little love that this template may encourage someone to give to it. But putting in at Talk:India, when it will take years for a country that size to reach star status, is strange and is confusing. Removing it now, but let me know if anyone disagrees :) – cacahuate talk 12:29, 21 February 2009 (EST)

share a todo item as a form of contribution[edit]

This seems to be the most appropriate place to promote adding todo items as a form contribution to the article. Its regular contributors shared everything they realize may be useful, but frequently a casual reader's external view can suggest what's missing. Those readers can't plunge forward to improve as they got only questions, not answers--while regular contributors aren't aware which questions arise among readers in the wild.

Such todo sections exist in Talk: pages of a dozen articles here, although I don't have a success story to share: most of the time questions stay there for months. However, for star potential todo lists can be more effective. --DenisYurkin 15:14, 7 July 2010 (EDT)
