Add new requests for a new template or updates to existing templates to the bottom of this page. Please be clear about what the template is used for, roughly what it should look like, and which articles it should link to, if any.

For requests regarding stub templates, go to Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Proposals.

A general description and guideline for userboxes can be found at Wikipedia:Userboxes. A detailed instruction to use the userbox template can be found at Template:Userbox. For requests regarding userboxes, go to Wikipedia talk:Userboxes/Ideas.

Citation Needs Update[edit]

Though there is a template for marking an entire article or section as needing citation updates, but there is also a need for a template to identify a specific citation that needs an update.

For example, in section Numerical weather prediction#Ensemble the citation to Weickmann, Klaus; Jeff Whitaker; Andres Roubicek; Catherine Smith (2001-12-01). "The Use of Ensemble Forecasts to Produce Improved Medium Range (3–15 days) Weather Forecasts". Climate Diagnostics Center, the link, actually addresses Susan Bacon, "Manila Galleon Voyages". This is probably a ESRL:PSD URL assignment error, none-the-less, it is an incorrect URL for the named article. I searched for that article and could not find it. I tagged the citation with {{dead link}} which is not truly the case.

A template of a similar form such as {{needs update}} or {{update needed}} modeled after {{dead link}} is desirable.

Image license[edit]

License template for images from these two [1] [2] govt websites that say that you can copy the content from the site and use it any where until you give credit to the source or provide a back link to the copied data. The Creative Commons license probably does not apply here so a new license should be created. (talk) 13:01, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

A "User wants to relocate to" template[edit]

I think that this template should be created because sometimes you want to relocate to somewhere in real life and on your user page you want to show where you are relocating to. The type of template will have a feature to add multiple places for your relocation in real life. After the first place has been put on the template it will show up as "This user wants to relocate to (Insert location name here)" For the ones after the first one, they will show up as "then to (insert location name here)".

The use case for this would be absolutely minimal. In the unlikely event that anyone really feels the need to tell us their entire life plans, why can they not just type "I plan to move to Foo and after that to Bar"? ‑ Iridescent 21:58, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
{{uir}} has {{uir|option=83|region=...}} for "This user wishes to be in ...". PrimeHunter (talk) 20:24, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
@PrimeHunter I believe what's being requested is a template that will output the text "This user wants to relocate to Detroit, then to Dresden, Dublin and Dover" from {{relocateto|Detroit|Dresden|Dublin|Dover}}. ‑ Iridescent 06:56, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes, but how many people would list more than one place? I guess a userbox is wanted and {{uir}} comes with many features like showing a flag for the place. A new option number could be requested for "wants to relocate to" instead of 83 for "wishes to be in". @MetricSupporter89: If you want to list multiple places then you can call {{Userbox}} directly with a custom text. I made an example call below. PrimeHunter (talk) 08:43, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Tracks for the Pink Floyd album, The Wall[edit]

Hello. I propose that we have a template for tracks on the Pink Floyd album The Wall. Every song on The Wall seems to have the song immediately before it and immediately after it on the article it can get slightly confusing and jumbled up. Case in point Waiting for the Worms. In addition the album in question is a concept album that is a story so much so that they made Pink Floyd – The Wall out of it, so having the next track so you could follow the plot would be a welcome and useful addition to the wiki page of every song. It is a rock opera so individual articles often reference other songs and I believe it would be beneficial to have a list of all the song at the start of each article.

I feel it would be a helpful addition to every song with a Wikipedia page (incidentally all of them) as it would make the whole thing a lot more understandable and accessible. If this template is accepted then I propose it will look pretty much the same as every other album tracks template there is at the minute and I feel this will be more necessary then, say, A Night at the Opera tracks. Thank you and I hope you consider my proposal and get back soon.

You mean, like the {{The Wall}} template which already appears on every single one of these articles? ‑ Iridescent 06:59, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
