Slight edit

To allow a parameter for the text shown.

[[Player character|{{{1|player}}}]]<noinclude>[[Category:Link templates]]</noinclude>

Thus,

{{player|protagonist}} to make protagonist.

Not entirely necessary, but handy.     -–<×vVvvv τλικ to ς1tHςι3r ^^vVv×>–- 11:20, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Done. I'm trying to make sure all the LTs allow alt-text, so if you spot any more, let me know. Thanks! --((Marton imos)) 03:39, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Deletion

This template links to player character with the display text "player". However, most of the time that "player" is used in a sentence, it is referring to the actual human pressing the buttons, not their in-game avatar. In the rare cases that it is appropriate to link to player character with the display text "player", I think we should just do it manually (i.e. [[Player character|player]]). This template just encourages users to use it incorrectly and link almost any instance of "player" in an article's text. --SnorlaxMonster 10:59, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
