Hi David, I noticed that you had created a variation of the adoption sign template {{tl|Adoption sign small}} to create narrower adoption signs that fit better under the topic sidebars on topic main pages (eg [[Texas]]). Today I amended the main {{tl|adoption sign}} template to include a new '''''small''''' parameter that means you do not need to create separate smaller versions, but can add this parameter (''|small=true'') to any of the existing templates where needed. I have added a new example to the [[Template:Adoption sign/society|common documentation]] for these templates to demonstrate how this works. --[[User:Cottrells|Steve]] 23:46, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Small adoption signs[edit source]

Hi David, I noticed that you had created a variation of the adoption sign template {{Adoption sign small}} to create narrower adoption signs that fit better under the topic sidebars on topic main pages (eg Texas). Today I amended the main {{adoption sign}} template to include a new small parameter that means you do not need to create separate smaller versions, but can add this parameter (|small=true) to any of the existing templates where needed. I have added a new example to the common documentation for these templates to demonstrate how this works. --Steve 23:46, 29 December 2010 (UTC)


Removed Links[edit source]

I noticed that a lot of links I had added to the Research Tools section were removed.    Why were they removed?  Were they moved somewhere else?   Why ask people to add links if they are just going to be removed.  I thought these were all very valuable links.   Also I feel like my time was wasted.   There should be a mechanism for notifying people as to why you removed or moved links.  Actually there is, but I didn't see any entries there.  


I did find a few where they had been moved and the move seemed ok, but the vast majority of them I cannot find.
