People interestedEdit

  • This is a good idea, mainly because I would LOVE to restore the old SharedIP templates (the ones with the blue box and the big "Attention:") to English Wikipedia. Putting "Welcome to Wikipedia! Create an account!" into an anti-vandal template is just dumb. Lojbanist (talk) 08:46, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Good idea. This will make it simpler to contribute to multiple wikis. New wikis will also start faster. We will all gain time. -- Thibdx (talk) 03:48, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
  •   Strong support. Very good idea to globalize some hundred-thousand of templates! Infoboxes, cite-webs, external link templates etc. Фред-Продавец звёзд (talk) 16:38, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Strong support Changing my earlier perspective, this is actually brilliant idea, much easier than transferring templates from another project. Would help in many ways to projects that lacks templates. maybe we should make his a part of commons. Arep Ticous 17:22, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

  •   Strong support Would allow usage of templates like, say, the {{strong support}} template on any site with ease, and allow sharing module code between wikis in an accessible manner.--Moonythedwarf (talk) 21:17, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

  •   Strong support. Nowadays there is a interwiki template hell. Global templates can help. It would be interesting also help in designing templates for Wikimedia Projects' users. It must include template levels: a user perhaps want use a simple and easy template (i.e. level 1). BoldLuis (talk) 23:38, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

But Wikimedia Templates ( if Wikimedia Commons will remain "Wikimedia Commons"; if Wikimedia Commons will become "Wikicommons", then "Wikitemplates". --NGC 54 (talk | contribs) 15:53, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

  •   Strong support It is like the template version of Commons, right? I believe it'll be very useful especially for small wikis. I'm active in Japanese Wikivoyage; actually, when that wiki was beginning, making templates took time and effort. --Atmark-chan <T/C> 15:56, 4 December 2020 (UTC)
