Maybe link special:whatlinkshere so inbound references can be viewed? Arlo Barnes (talk) 06:38, 23 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New layout for this template is probably appropriate[edit]

Currently the layout is in this form:

<div style="background: #f0e8e8">This page is a placeholder for a page about the year '''{{PAGENAME}}'''. The Wikiquote community has not yet come to a consensus on what this page, and calendar-year pages generally, ought to say. Please discuss any suggestions for the contents of year pages at the [[Wikiquote:Village pump|Village pump]]. In the meantime, Wikipedia's [[w:{{PAGENAME}}|{{PAGENAME}}]] article offers a list of noteworthy events of this year.</div>

I believe that some of the ways date pages HAVE already been used in the past should be incorporated into suggestions on the page, and the general statement changed to reflect the presence of such options, and perhaps an incorporated adoption of some options. I will probably attempt to come up with something along those lines within a few days. ~ ♌︎Kalki ⚓︎ 07:46, 12 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I had been planning to leave for at least a few hours, and soon will do so, but have already altered the notice displayed to better reflect the existing and potential options for these pages:

<div style="background: #f0e8e8">Wikipedia's '''[[w:{{PAGENAME}}|{{PAGENAME}}]]''' article offers a list of noteworthy events of this year. This page is currenly a placeholder for a page about the year '''{{PAGENAME}}'''. The Wikiquote community has not yet come to a consensus on what this page, and calendar-year pages generally, ought to say. Please discuss any suggestions for the contents of year pages at the [[Wikiquote:Village pump|Village pump]], or the current discussion page at '''[[Template talk:Year page placeholder]]'''. </div>

I might try to provide something more extensive than this within the next day or two. ~ ♌︎Kalki ⚓︎ 08:11, 12 October 2022 (UTC) + tweakReply[reply]
