Upcoming workshop on "Debugging template errors"
|On 27 March 2021, we will be organizing a workshop on the topic of "Debugging template errors". To prepare for the workshop in advance, we would like to gather all kinds of template errors (related but not limited to importing templates, translating them, Lua, etc.) that you face while working with templates on your wiki. If you plan to attend the workshop and would like your common issues related to dealing with templates addressed, share your issues below so we can prepare for those in advance and work with you around those during the workshop. Please share links to the pages where you see these errors and also, links to Phabricator tickets, if you have.

Hello KCVelaga, eventually, most Wikis will need a bot to archive old posts on talk pages, so it could be useful if you could cover this. I suppose that the easiest way to achieve this would be by using Pywikibot/archivebot.py . The Discoverer (talk) 16:49, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
