Hi, I´ve used your template for Luxembourg WikiProject Page and faced some problems with the variable BASENAME. The Name of the page has to be purely the country name rather than ´<"WikiProject" + country name>. E.g. the WikiProject page has to be forwarded to the country page. Usually, in most country projects it's vice versa. May be, it´s better to use the parameter "fullname" instead of BASENAME. So, the user can control the behaviour with the parameter. --Nils Lux 22:22, 2 October 2010 (BST)
