Remember to subst welcome templates[change source]

Information.svg Thank you for your changes to Wikipedia, Yaakov Wa.. However, I would like to remind you that when you use certain templates, you should substitute them by adding "subst:" before the template's name. An example is, use "{{subst:uw-subst}}" instead of "{{uw-subst}}". This reduces server load and prevents accidental blanking of the template. Thank you. --Ferien (talk) 17:52, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Dear Ferien,
Thanks for that information!

Request reason:

Have been contributing a lot. No rules broken (3RR is only for the 4th time). If you looked at that particular edit, it was precisely to address what others said about no existing account. Additionally, I admit I do rash things, but will acknowledge when I make a mistake

Decline reason:

You weren't blocked for violating 3RR. You were blocked in accordance with Simple English Wikipedia's one-strike rule (linked above in IWI's message). -- Auntof6 (talk) 02:30, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Auntof6 This isn't related to the block message, not that I'm doing this, but if a user is blocked, does replacing their userpage with the blocked template do anything? --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:32, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
@つがる: Um, you mean other than wipe out the content of the page? I don't know. I don't know if there's a policy about that, but in any case I would rather that were left to the admins. It's better that non-admins don't do things that are or appear to be punitive. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:56, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
Auntof6 I meant where the page (userpage) is wiped out and replaced with the blocked template. I've seen some non-admins do this in the past before, but I usually don't do it, because I don't want to get in trouble, and as you mention, it is better for admins to do these kinds of tasks instead. --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:58, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
@つがる: I would guess it's to deprive the user of a presence on the wiki. If they are banned/indeffed, I guess they shouldn't be entitled to that. --Auntof6 (talk) 03:00, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
@つがる: it adds it to a category that allows it to be deleted after some time, at admin discretion. --IWI (talk) 09:11, 23 April 2021 (UTC)
