Editcopy

[view | edit | history | purge]Documentation

This template is used to mark that a page is an editcopy. This means that the main page equivalent is protected, likely due to being a high traffic page or a vandalism target, but other users can contribute by changing the editcopy. Eventually, a member of a user group that can edit the main page equivalent will look over the changes and if they are constructive add them.

This template should also be used on any page that has an editcopy, rather than just the editcopy itself. This will allow readers to compare the editcopy and its main equivalent without the template difference showing up. The template is coded so that the message box will only appear if the title of the page ends with "/editcopy".
