  • Hi,

    This is not my business, but I hope this can help you to prevent similar problems on BCoW in the future:

    I saw a recent activity on BCoW, and there were actions such as this one:

    http://bloonsconception.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Wikipedia?curid=1520&diff=123303&oldid=3815

    The edited template itself still work correctly, i.e. it is transclused correctly, however the page with the template is broken after that contribution (see difference between rev.3815 and rev.123303). The {| symbols are not interpreted as a start of the table anymore, because they are not at the start of the line due to the <noinclude></noinclude> tag.

    I would recommend to put all categorization tags to the end of the page/template, especially when there is already the <noinclude></noinclude> tag present on the page, i.e. instead of:

    <noinclude>[[Category:Templates]]</noinclude>
    ...
    <noinclude>
    {{documentation}}</noinclude>
    

    it can be

    ...
    <noinclude>{{documentation}}</noinclude>
    <noinclude>[[Category:Templates]]</noinclude>
    

    or even better

    ...
    <noinclude>
    {{documentation}}
    [[Category:Templates]]</noinclude>
    


    One must be twice more careful while performing actions with a bot account, because hundreds of pages can be damaged in a few minutes.

    • Thanks for pointing this out. I definitely appreciate it! :D Luckily, it's easily undoable.

    • A side note: Would the below work?

      ...
      <noinclude>{{Documentation}}<noinclude>[[Category:Templates:</noinclude>

      • There is an unclosed <noinclude> tag there.
      • Also, [[Category:Templates: instead of [[Category:Templates]].
