A number of time's I've created advanced templates for wikia I admin/edit which basically replace a number of old templates with one which can do more than the originals. Some examples would be my delete template which replaces both afd and delete (Examples at The Gaiapedia, Naruto, InuYasha, and EN Anime), my dual-purpose spoilers template which combines spoilers and spoilers-end into one, and my multi-use cc and pd templates which replace PD-user, PD-self, PD-old, and combine all the templates for the different CC lincenses into one (Examples at PD: EN Anime CC: EN Anime and The Gaiapedia).
The only new tecnique I've experimented with that I've moved to the Central Wiki is the project on a better Babel template system.
Perhaps we should start a page, wiki, and/or forum for people from different wikia to contribute new types of templates which might be able to replace the old standards of tecniques with new ones which could then be brought into other wikia which may want to use them. Perhaps Wikia Experimental Tecniques Project, Forum:Tecniques, and http://tecniques.wikia.com Dantman (Talk) 02:41, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
- Maybe this would be well suited for the Starter wiki? Good ideas for all-around useful templates and such. Scottch 07:54, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
