Template talk:Helpme

From FamilySearch Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

What is the purpose of changing this template to {{tlp|Helpme}} when done? It just leaves the text {{helpme}} on the page which looks a little confusing, unless I am missing something.... Why not just remove the template? Is it supposed to do something like the unresolved/resolved, where the template changes, or do you really just want to see the template link?
Also, could someone make it so that this template doesn't open in the rich text editor? I want to simplify the wording in it a little, but am having problems doing so.

Hi Janell, good question. The template was developed by Wikipedia and the idea was that is linked back to the template, where the documentation explained how the Help Me system worked. Since being copied to the Research Wiki the Wikipedia template has been further developed so that they now change the template once a person has been helped so that it links to a new template Template:Help me-helped. I think this is a good change and will implement this change in the Research Wiki. I will also add the __NORICHEDITOR__ magic word to the template so that Rich Text Editing is disabled. --Steve 07:21, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
