Category for previous patchesEdit

Does anyone think it would be worthwhile to have the template automatically add a category if the patch specified wasn't the latest? That way it was easy to distinguish which articles need updated. -Howbizr (talk) 20:02, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

I have added T:Stub/Updated on the theory that
a) updating a stub for data from a new patch is easier than filling it in from the ground up
b) having a patch ID is a very useful feature for the stub
c) ideally, updated stubs will be removed as they get updated, requiring cleanup of individually labeled "updated" categories (such as {{removedfromgame}} uses) as they get emptied.
d) having all the updated stubs in one category avoids some of them being hidden from someone taking updating as their task.
I am not attached to the category name, the template name, or the text involved. If you think different names/text would suit, please be BOLD. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 20:23, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
I think you missed the point by creating a new template. We would add a parameter inside the template, so that if anyone provided something other than the latest patch, the category would be added.
And I find your template kind of confusing. I think we should probably just stick with the stub templates we have. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 3:54 PM, 28 Aug 2009 (EDT)
His stub was so that the items that were added/changed in a upcoming PTR patch (in this case 3.2.0. I was changing the {{Stub/PTR|<patch 3.2.0>}} stubs to {{Stub/Achievement}}, {{Stub/Item}}, {{Stub/Mob}}, {{Stub/NPC}} and {{Stub/Other}} as per the stub PTR wording for when the build was released into the game. His stub puts them into a seperate category so they can be easily found and fixed and NOT lost into the OVER 7,000 stubed {{Stub/Item}} as it were. Granted this category will grow in number as well if they are never worked on as the other stubbed articles are. I guess someone has to start somewhere!?!? -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

Category problems Edit

I cannot figure this out, with the <includeonly> and <onlyinclude>. I'm trying to show, only for transcluded pages, either the category Category:Stubs/Upcoming Patch or the category Category:Patch update stubs. No matter what I try, it just isn't working.

Fixed... more or less. User:Coobra/Sig4 03:22, September 6, 2009 (UTC)

This template still appears in category:Patch update stubs. The documentation page (as it uses this template) also appears in that category, despite having used "doc=". I wouldn't call that fixed, necessarily. I don't know if it became UN-fixed since september. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:27, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
