I noticed that charm logs may be confusing to users who have good intentions, but do not update them properly. Thus, their edits may be reverted as vandalism. I am proposing that we create several template. One would be instructions for how to edit Charm logs, much like the [[Template:GEPriceUpdateGuide|GEPriceUpdateGuide]] for the GEMW. Furthermore, we should have two Charm log vandalism templates, similar to GEMW1 and GEMW2 for exchange pages. This way, it would be easier to tell confused users/vandals exactly what they are doing wrong and what they need to work on. If this passes, I will see if Quarenon is amenable to adding the two Charm log templates to his Templates script.

I have created prototypes in my sandbox. [[User:Liquidhelium/Sandbox/CharmLogUpdateGuide|Charm log update guide]], [[User:Liquidhelium/Sandbox/Charm log 1|Charm log 1]], [[User:Liquidhelium/Sandbox/Charm log 2|Charm log 2]]. They were largely based off of the existing GEMW templates.

You guys may test it out on charm log vandals, but if you use the templates, make sure you add subst: prior to the template call to my sandbox, since in all likelihood the templates will be moved out.

The GEMW Templates

GEPriceUpdateGuide

{{GEPriceUpdateGuide}}

After discussion - GEPriceUpdateGuide will be deleted very soon. {{GEMWHelp}} has been created per Forum:Reforming GEMW instruction templates, and is very similar to GEPriceUpdateGuide. If you are reading this archived thread wondering what GEPriceUpdateGuide looks like, I suggest you head to {{GEMWHelp}} instead.

Discussion

Support - As nominator. --LiquidTalk 00:16, March 22, 2010 (UTC)

Support - I keep having to type out a message manually to charm log vandals. --Iiii I I I 00:20, March 22, 2010 (UTC)

Support But please change "update the Charm log." It sounds and looks so strange, especially with the capital C. Other than that tiny issue, why not? Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 12:19, March 22, 2010 (UTC)

Support - All looks good. The charm 2 template thing will be helpful as charm vandalism is as common as GEMW vandalism now. I only use the GEMW1 template when someone updates the gemw page multiple times incorrectly however so we don't become as obsessive as wikipedia.

Comment - We already have [[Template:CharmLogUpdateGuide|this]], why do we need another how-to-update template? AGKZLBucket detail.pngrwojy 03:22, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

Huh, never seen that before. --LiquidTalk 21:03, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I've moved the templates from my sandbox into the Template namespace. They are found [[Template:CharmLogUpdateGuide|here]], [[Template:Charm log 1|here]], and [[Template:Charm log 2|here]]. Anyone with an objection can post here, and if the templates are rejected, then I'll ask an admin to delete them. --LiquidTalk 22:03, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Per above. Also, I've added these templates into the template notification script. --Quarenon  Talk 23:57, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

Request for closure - Since this has already been implemented (by that I mean the Charm log update guide has been added to the top of every charm log, and the vandalism templates are ready for use), I am requesting this thread be closed. --LiquidTalk 00:02, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - Proposal has been implemented. Should you need to warn a user about correctly updating charm logs, you may use the templates {{Charm log 1}} or {{Charm log 2}}.  Tien  02:52, March 26, 2010 (UTC)
