Template:usage less fewer

This passed RFD on the grounds it was better to improve it than delete it. I have orphaned it from the one page that used it so the cleanup won't be visible on the article itself. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:14, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

You don't really get this one at all :p. The reason behind templates like this is so that improving them improves the entry (or entries) they are included on. That said, the usage notes of both less and fewer do need cleaning, the person doing the cleanup can decide whether to use the template or not. (I've undone your orphaning as it broke the link on less). Conrad.Irwin 20:46, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
The header ====Usage notes==== is in the template itself, meaning that when you click 'edit' on less, it edits this template, not the article. So that's the first thing to fix. Mglovesfun (talk) 16:44, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Done, any complaints? Mglovesfun (talk) 04:56, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
