Hi, I noticed that you're copying a lot of templates from en:. What for? Are you sure they're all needed? Max Semenik 15:41, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

(edit conflict) Hi MaxSem, all of the templates I copied are needed for each other to work. The babel box needs the userbox-level template, which needs the userbox template, which needs the Cat Handler template and the Name Space detector. I actually just finished copying all of the necessary templates and was looking for more things to do. Do you have any ideas. Thanks, --Alpha Quadrant talk 15:46, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
I understand that you really want to help, but so far you're just importing indiscriminately all stuff from enwiki, which is not helpful. Max Semenik 16:00, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
I was copying babble boxes here because they are on Special:WantedTemplates. I thought this would be helpful. --Alpha Quadrant talk 16:14, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
This is not Wikipedia. And this is by design. We don't want to look more like it, and if we really needed the Babel templates (we didn't have such need in 5 years of this wiki's existence), we would just install Extension:Babel. Max Semenik 16:42, 31 October 2010 (UTC)


Please don't create useless redirects to Wikipedia. Simple editcoutitis don't matter here and won't help you to get the editor status. Max Semenik 15:44, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
