Suggested best practices

  • Age before Beauty: In the case where there are two categories created at very different times, one of which is consistent with current general practice and the other is at odds with current general practice, discussion leading to consensus should be engaged OR a change consistent with the older example should be pursued. This is generally consistent with precedents set by Wikipedia editing practice ("age before beauty") in the areas of reference/citation formatting and language dialect word choice, among others. --Ceyockey 17:35, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
  • Technology-enforced business rules: Trumping 'age before beauty' is 'automation before manual labor'. Templates can be easily designed which enforce a particular naming convention on categories; one example is the widely used Template:Place. In cases where a naming convention is enforced by technology in the wiki and there is no exception process, the automated solution takes precedence over what might be done through manual means. If you disagree with the business rule(s) enforced by a template, please discuss this on the template's talk page. --Ceyockey 17:57, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Evolution from Wikipedia template

  • The wikipedia template relies on a meta-template, cmbox (category message box), which is part of the intricate templating system implemented in wikipedia. The OSM template has been relieve of this dependency and instead uses a combination of the native Template:InfoBoxStart|Template:InfoBoxEnd and {{PAGENAME}}. --Ceyockey 14:44, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
  • The wikipedia template relies on the meta-template Category other, which helps a template detect whether it is placed on a category or non-category page. This dependency has been eliminated and no replacement provided. --Ceyockey 15:16, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
  • The wikipedia template relies on the template pp-template, which alters the appearance of the template depending on the protection-level of the page on which it is placed. This dependency has been eliminated and no replacement provided. --Ceyockey 15:20, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
