Remove invented icon[edit]

{{editsemiprotect}} As per MOS:ICON#Do_not_distort_icons, I see no evidence this has widespread usage outside of wiki same for {{African American topics sidebar}} (talk) 14:52, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Not done: please be more specific about what needs to be changed. GrooveDog • i'm groovy. 17:18, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
It's simple remove the made up icon. Or in other words set |image = [[Image:AmericaAfrica.svg|80px]] to |image = on both templates (talk) 23:51, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
Done, I can also see no reason why this image needs to be in there. --The Evil IP address (talk) 15:41, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

"Raised Fist" not "Black Fist"[edit]

I noticed that the "Black fist" link leads to a rock band, and not the intended target, which is under "Raised fist". I tried to make the change myself, but had to create an account in order to do so, and still have to make some edits before I qualify as an established registered user. If someone else could change this in the meanwhile, I would appreciate it. ExistentialBliss (talk) 19:13, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing out the problem. I've fixed it by changing the article to which Black fist redirects. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 23:39, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, Malik. I appreciate your diligence. I've been editing here for a while and should have created an account a long time ago. At least this motivated me to do so. ExistentialBliss (talk) 00:49, 22 January 2010 (UTC)


Shouldn't the template title have "African-American" instead of "African American"? Protonk (talk) 18:02, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request[edit]

Please add Baseball color line.
Current code in "list6": [[Negro league baseball]]{{·w}}
Change to: [[Negro league baseball]] ([[Baseball color line]]){{·w}}
If you want to format it different, go for it. Thanks. -- (talk) 15:54, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request (redux)[edit]

Please add History of Blacks in ice hockey.

At the bottom of the items in "list6" please add:

* [[History of Blacks in ice hockey|African Americans in ice hockey]]

(Including the " * ".) The above wording seems consistent with the NFL & CFL entries in the template, but feel free to change the description after the piping if you so desire. Rgrds. -- (talk) 15:38, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Done, request seems reasonable. Subject to standard WP:BRD if anyone objects. Monty845 16:24, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
