Center tags in captions don't have to be closed. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 06:30, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Why do they show up in the LintErrors then? -- WOSlinker (talk) 07:59, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) BeenAroundAWhile: Every opening tag requires a closing tag. When unclosed tags sometimes happen to render the way you want them to render, the software is compensating for an editing error by guessing where the closing tag should go. There is no guarantee that the software will continue to do so; many similar errors have stopped being worked around by the rendering software.
Unclosed tags flag the page for inclusion in the Lint error list of articles with unclosed tags, a list of errors that WP gnomes are working to eliminate. Please close all tags that you open. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:12, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. Another case of software being as dumb as a brick. But I shall cooperate. (Also I don't know what "lint" means except it's at the bottom of my clothes dryer quite often.) BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 04:32, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

Find a Grave templateEdit

This template was discussed for deletion back in May 2016. After the latest RSN discussion in October 2016, WP:RSP lists Find a Grave as something that should almost never be used in EL, and practically never as a source. That said, I think this template is no longer needed.

I'd like to nominate it for deletion, but I can't because it's protected; and Twinkle suggests I contact the protecting admin first. Could you temporarily unprotect it so I can nominate it, or can you submit a deletion nomination? Graywalls (talk) 10:38, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

@Graywalls: I've temporarily changed the protection, so can you nominate now. -- WOSlinker (talk) 10:43, 3 October 2020 (UTC)


WOSlinker, Thanks for fixing my many typos in the coordinates for the Iowa townships. Sorry about that. You were kind to clean it up. GeorgeofOrange (talk) 02:06, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
