Turning in-text warning into template

Something I realized while reading this article was how the sentences in the introduction explaining the standards of notability for entries do not flow very well with the rest of the text surrounding them. In order for the standards of notability to be more easily found for users not bothering to read the entire introduction, should a simple template be created to display at the top of the page, in a similar manner to the "uncommon identities" one used currently?


It would be simple to create, I'd be willing to do it even. But before I take any sorts of steps toward making a change like this, I was just curious about what other users would think.

Good point! I've removed them from the intro and added the {{notice}} template at the top with a simplification of what was written. What do you think about it?

Thank you, looks great! That's exactly what I had in mind.

The ref-name this is about is "GC2020". If you do a text-search in the source, you will find that it is used quite often, (and that is not the problem). However, the position where its target is currently specified makes it so, that the reference is not carried over to Aesthetgender (starting from where I found the problem), hence there we get an error message instead of a link. I figure every of the Xenogenders listed would run into the same trouble if the Basic Information sections are copied the way it is for Aesthetgender, unless specs are copied in every instance(?), so I hesitate to do anything for now and ask for thoughts and ideas about this first.

Related: 1: On the Ethegender-page the problem seems to be solved, but it does not look pretty (two reference-markers instead of one, and at least one of them is obviously working for some reason). 2: Of the Xenogenders listed, some appear to link to another wiki-page, but five of them direct to the Xenogender-page itself. Should that stay this way (as a reminder to write something about them or something)?

Hi! Good points all of these. I've looked for a technical solution to the issue with transcluding references, and there doesn't seem to be one. I think the best option is to repeat the full reference in the article with the transclusion, between <references> </references> tags, as I've done in ethegender.

As for the second point, I don't think there should be links pointing to the page itself unless they point to a different section (which is not the case). Feel free to remove them!

Done.
