Below is a list of empty shells that are available for use in the mass message subscription list content model. To use one, go to the page, and move it to the title you want. These pages should typically only be moved to the User and Project namespaces. New shells can be created by administrators and template editors.
I don't really care one way or the other, so long as it is consistent and doesn't break any bots. — xaosfluxTalk 15:31, 7 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
As I previously discussed, I suggest putting requests on a separate page (either moving them to a new subpage, or moving discussions on a new subpage). Then standard second-level heading archiving by a bot can be used for each, into separate archives. isaacl (talk) 20:23, 7 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Maybe put the page with requests in the Wikipedia namespace, like WP:RM, WP:AfD, WP:CfD, WP:TfD, etc. Perhaps Wikipedia:Mass message senders/Requests with a catchy shortcut. Alternatively, we could move the instructions to a subpage which is transcluded to Wikipedia:Mass message senders, with this main page hosting the requests. This second option would make it easier for requesters to find while keeping the instructions on a separate page to protect them from vandalism. – Reidgreg (talk) 23:31, 7 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have gone through all the archives today since I saw that they were seperated properly in archive 7. They all should be properly sorted. I did this in order to prepare for a possible move to "Wikipedia:Mass message senders/Requests" and to just genrally improve searching MMS archives. I know that I proposed this 7 months ago but I finally got round to starting this... Terasail[✉️] 23:43, 7 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello, after reading and thinking about the comments by Reidgreg and isaacl. I think that there is an argument to be made for splitting requests onto a new page either a subpage or a completley new page (examples Wikipedia:Mass message senders/Requests or Wikipedia:Mass Message Requests). I created Wikipedia:Mass message senders/Requests as an example of what the page could be. I took the core components of Wikipedia:Mass message senders, rewrote them specifically with the idea that the reader would be someone requesting MMS, and then adding the MMS request section at the bottom. It is currently just a first attempt and I realise that I completley missed the Guidance for use section which should proably be included. The way I see it is: You don't see a section on "Becoming an administrator" when you try to edit the main page, why should you see "Requesting rights" and "General discussion" of MMS when trying to request a new message to be sent? It can just overload and act as a barrier for a user with no good reason that I can see as to why this is the case. With this change it can also mean that the page Wikipedia:Mass message senders can be rewritten with a focus on the user right with help for using the tool and what it is rather than a focus on making requests.
Overall just looking for thoughts on this and the new page I created and the idea in general, not looking to reshuffle everything at this very moment. Terasail[✉️] 01:50, 8 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
