U.S. state templates[edit]

Wikipedia:WikiProject U.S. states/state templates lists and displays all 50 U.S. state (and additional other) templates. It potentially can be used for ideas and standardization. //MrD9 07:18, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Standardization of state templates[edit]

There is currently an ongoing discussion regarding standardization of state templates (primarily regarding layout and styling) at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject U.S. states/state templates. An effort was made earlier this year to standardize Canadian province templates (which mostly succeeded). Lovelac7 and I have already begun standardizing all state templates. If you have any concerns, they should be directed toward the discussion page for state template standardization. Thanks! — Webdinger BLAH | SZ 22:55, 27 August 2006 (UTC)


Is there a particular reason why this template is tan? Wouldn't it be better to just go with the default used by {{navbox}} to avoid having a rainbow at the bottom of the page when this navbox is next to another one and per WP:ACCESSIBILITY? Please let me know if there is a strong reason to have it a particular color. I noticed this was attempted recently, but was reverted, so I thought I would be proactive and start a thread here to avoid an edit war. Thanks! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 21:46, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Why not? We already have tons of different colors of templates; there's no need to make every single state's template the same color. Nyttend (talk) 02:59, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
There is WP:Deviations, which basically discourages overriding MediaWiki:Common.css using inline style statements. Basically, by putting all the styling in MediaWiki:Common.css the visually impaired can override it using a personal Special:MyPage/skin.css. I will invite further comments at one of the WP:MOS talk pages. Thanks! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 03:14, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
