Parameters[edit]

The parameter is the language, not the code, isn't it? I added a request to ظهر, as a result, it only added to Category:Requests for audio pronunciation, not to Category:Requests for audio pronunciation (Arabic). Anatoli 00:20, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

I experimented with it. You need to write it twice: {{rfap|Arabic|Arabic}} --Anatoli 11:42, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
The first parameter is for the textual description of what language/dialect is needed. The second is used for categorization (can be code or name). I've just added lang= so you can use that also instead of the second parameter. --Bequw τ 04:57, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Audio recording[edit]

There is an open source software that synthesizes words in a good quality : Festival (Wikipedia page). A little program can be made to generate lots of word pronunciations. Ftiercel 08:08, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

I think it should be still done by humans. Anatoli 22:43, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Multiple langs[edit]

Can this be made to accomodate multiple requested languages/dialects, so we don't need to have two, big, nearly-identical boxes on the page? ExampleMichael Z. 2010-05-04 01:30 z

Self-adjusting width[edit]

At [[Bulgaria]], with rhs ToC, this template appears after the ToC and forces a large amount of white space on the landing screen. DCDuring TALK 16:44, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

{{rfp}} has the same problem. {{rfe}} does not. DCDuring TALK 16:54, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Category:English terms needing attention[edit]

This template should not categorize in this category. The change already worked for {{rfd}} would seem applicable. I'll work up the courage to do it in a couple of days or possibly revert to an earlier version that doesn't do this. DCDuring TALK 23:05, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Why do we need parameters?[edit]

Wouldn't it be evident what the requested language is by the location where the template is used? Wouldn't one parameter be good enough to tell the reader which language, specifically, is requested?--Makkachin (talk) 17:31, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
