A template in limbo
I really don't want to wait on Umeko indefinitely. Three months is quite a long enough wait for me. If Umeko can't manage it, someone else should be able to make this decision. I'd like for you (or someone) to vet and (if it's deserving) approve the template in Umeko's stead. [[User:Tiddlywinks|Tiddlywinks]] ([[User talk:Tiddlywinks|talk]]) 03:24, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
:I don't think that the tables on those pages are complex enough for a template to be worthwhile. You should be able to put all the code into the header and hardcode it without it becoming too long. <span class="sc">[[User:Werdnae|<span style="color:#2D4B98;">Werdnae</span>]]</span> <small>[[User talk:Werdnae|<span style="color:#009000;">(talk)</span>]]</small> 21:43, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
::I don't understand whether you're against a template (as your first sentence apparently indicates) or not. "You should be able to put all the code into the header": [[User:Tiddlywinks/Template:JELyrics/h|this header]]? Do you perhaps mean that I should combine the three templates into one?
::In any case, if you don't think the template saves enough "length": templates are not just for shortening code. Templates provide an accessible and recognizable standard, and by the same token they facilitate any changes to that standard by ensuring that only one place needs to be changed: the changes will be reflected everywhere the template has been used.
