About this board

Welcome to my talk page.

This page might be protected at some moments due to vandalism. Leave me a message elsewhere using the {{Mention}} or {{Reply to}} template. If you're using Structured Discussions/Flow, you might need to use {{FlowMention}} instead.

I tend to remove pages that do not conform to the project scope. In short, if I removed it with that reason, you're more than likely in the wrong place. I provide the page content upon request. It helps if you provide the name of the page I deleted - I tend to delete a lot of pages, and it isn't obvious to me which page is yours.

i saw your deletion of Template:Tstest/Testts2.css. the summary said "Test, please use the sandbox"

i do not necessarily object the deletion - tbh, can't recall what or why. the fact it appeared in my watchlist is a strong indicator i created this in the first place, but i was not really aware of its existence, and if i was indeed the creator, i totally forgot about it.

however, the summary is wrong and not helpful: this was a "templatestyle" page, and such pages are special, in that the templatestyles extension will only take pages which are "subpages" (i.e., contain slash as part of the name) in the Template namespace.

so the deletion might have been a good thing, but the rationale was completely wrong - it's not possible to use sandbox for testing templatestyles.

if you know differently, please teach me - i'll be more than happy to learn how to test templaktestyles other than creating a "subpage" to a template.

on 2nd look, this test was indeed useful - it taught me that it's not enough for a templatestyle to exist in Template: namespace for it to work - it _must_ also be a subpage... (not sure if the page above the subpage must also exist, but i guess that if i want to test it, i won't do it here... :) peace

In hindsight, I should've used a different deletion message; one that links to testwiki:.

However, back in 2018, TemplateStyles might not have been available there, and this wiki would've been the only place to test it.

In any event, tests like Template:Tstest/Testts2.css aren't really an issue; there isn't a specific enough deletion message to indicate that.

sorry for being petty. it really has no significance, and in hindsight, as you say, i shouldn't have wasted your time.

i guess i was just a bit surprised - tbh, i totally forgot about this little experiment, and when i saw the deletion i was not even sure if i was the one who created it...
