With the new design Template:Fancynote is now an alias for Template:Note.

 

Though {{Fancynote}} is most widely used, I'd suggest to remove it in favor of {{Note}} which is more concise and meaningful.

 

If you agree, I will replace all {{Fancynote}} occurences to {{Note}} and mark [[Template:Fancynote]] as deprecated (with the new template I created for that purpose) so that people using {{fancynote}} get warned it has changed.

 

Obviously, this also applies to (fancy)important, (fancy)tip, and (fancy)warning.

 

Not a big deal, but there is some general cleanup to do on the wiki regarding to deprecated things, old pages, unused things, wanted things, ...

I know we can script bots but I did not look into it for now.

"Fixing" this doesn't result in any benefit for wiki readers, so it seems like a poor area to focus on.

Indeed, it sounds quite cosmetic against the huge work to be done. However, I'll finish to cleanup pages using old templates that are yet removed.

Because of foreign languages support, is it possible to have French equivalents for Warning (Attention) and Tip (Astuce) ?
