Please read the handbook for requesters for help using this template correctly.

Web browsers do not remember when you click on the top portion for the Traditional version, thus it is time consuming to click on a Traditional Chinese version every time a new article is opened.

I suggest that the Simplified and the Traditional versions be split up because not every one knows how to read the other set of characters.

Also, this helps if you want to limit the contents of the Simplified version for the Mainland Chinese people.
