Simplify sentence[edit]

"Lists of attempts in creating fundamental principles" at the bottom can be simplified to "List of fundamental principles," which better reflects the title and subject of the linked article. May this be changed? Aonus (talk) 05:50, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

More contrast for the check marks[edit]

It's quite hard to distinguish between the greenish-blue and green check marks at a glance. Colors like #06c and #070 might work better. – XYZt (talk  |  contribs) – 02:40, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Have always though that the check marks cause an accessibility concern for colorblind people and should be dropped altogether if Wikipedia want to looks like we care about accessibility for the colorblind. But yes a better choice is good.--Moxy (talk) 03:20, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
Good point. Maybe instead of checkmarks, P for policy and G for guideline. – XYZt (talk  |  contribs) – 06:02, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
Anything that makes it looks like we're not discriminate against colorblind people wold be better. As a pillar of the internet Community we should follow basic accessibility protocols. --Moxy (talk) 06:05, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
Just a note, but any change to this template will need to be applied wherever else the checks are used to distinguish a policy or guideline. As an example: {{Subcat guideline}}. I think the easiest solution would be to use different characters for policies and guidelines. Something like Green plus mark.svg could work. « Gonzo fan2007 (talk) @ 18:10, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 12 September 2019[edit]

Hi! Can you give me any advice for improving this article?--Marvins-island (talk) 23:00, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

Marvins-island, this isn't an article, it is a template. Is there another article you want to improve? If you actually want to improve this template, please explain what improvements you would like to see. « Gonzo fan2007 (talk) @ 23:09, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

WP:POG isn't a guideline nor is it policy[edit]

This is per the top template on the page:

"This is an information page
"It describes the editing community's established practice on some aspect or aspects of Wikipedia's norms and customs. It is not one of Wikipedia's policies or guidelines, as it has not been thoroughly vetted by the community"

Can someone link to the discussion where WP:POG was established as a Wikipedia guideline? If not, then it should be removed from this template under "Portal namespace" as misleading. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 15:58, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

Knowledgekid87, agree. It has been removed. « Gonzo fan2007 (talk) @ 17:30, 26 September 2019 (UTC)
