Rationale[edit]

Let's see codes that how {{Tl}} on every wikis around the Internet world have (without documentation parts):

{{[[{{#if:{{{2|}}}|{{{2|}}}:}}Template:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]]}}

I really doubted for several years, that if there are reasons that {{!}} should be a magic word, then why not do so for Tl?

Probably I may guess someone who wanna oppose me: They say "Hey I need these codes on my wiki as my private code" (Are you really sure that your wiki is a private wiki, even so, such code needs privately repeat)? "Hey Template:Tl on my wiki has different role than yours" (can't you consider renaming)? "Template:Tl on my wiki has redirected to another template" (without additional parameters, there are no affects to your wiki, don't you know, or if your wiki would prefer translations of "Tl", then you may also translate the Tl in MediaWiki codes, why not)? "There are several templates derivated from Template:Tl" (I only ask to convert {{Tl}}, no derivates)?

So I just want to ask two words: Why not? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 22:24, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
