    Wtf, and whoever posted this comment of mine here? I don't remember commenting it here --YellowFrogger (Talk β€” ✐) 03:17, 2 January 2022 (UTC)
    It was merged in this edit.  AnpangπŸ“¨  03:23, 2 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: *Is this something don't need? Users are freed to modify both Cascading Style Sheets and changing themes and would not need a "pattern for this". If users want an animal wiki this will have normal. I discard it. Now imagine a bunch of wikis with repetitive themes? The MH icon has always been the default for this; with this standardization imposed here by you, probably the wikis would be just a copy of the others. Besides, the work it would take to organize everything properly; Miraheze is multilingual. Update: Not everyone needs an infobox on a wiki: just imagine someone who only needs a particular wiki to study, etc.? A guide/manual on adding infoboxes would be better instead.

    But new users would still have trouble adding infoboxes, trust me. For the "Now imagine a bunch of wikis with repetitive themes?", this actually makes that point better, if this isn't added all wikis would have the same "Template", the Seems like the bureaucrat hasn't created the main page yet!  AnpangπŸ“¨  01:47, 22 December 2021 (UTC)
    Imagine almost everyone on the same subject with the same main page, and the little work it would take to build. It would be a copy of the other. This current one is just to flag something like you installed MediaWiki now --YellowFrogger (Talk β€” ✐) 14:16, 22 December 2021 (UTC)
    Please note that substantive discussion should be avoided until the voting period begins. Discussion should be limited to whether it's in scope. Reception123 (talk) (C) 14:20, 22 December 2021 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: Technically speaking I think this would be ideal as an opt-in option to import using an interface where you can select prefabricated options and just get what you need as a boilerplate, of course presenting and encouraging the typical import process especially in cases of something that can't or shouldn't be an automatic option. But where the line of this thought is drawn, is when they are imported automatically. That's where the conceptual concern comes in, as raised above. --Raidarr (talk) 22:29, 31 December 2021 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: Decent idea, but even as an opt-in option, I'm not inclined to favour this as it would negate the purpose behind Miraheze Template Wiki. Really all that needs to be done here is to create a new wiki suggested template "starter pack," with easy-to-read instructions on to import them, on Miraheze Template Wiki.
