Military Template Problem...again [closed]

+5 votes

I copied and pasted the sticker for a Great War Veteran from the page with the usage instructions for The Great War Template. I added the information I had to the template and deleted the parameters for which I did not have information. I have gotten a suggestion this week that I have used "deprecated parameters" within the template. I cannot tell what I have done incorrectly so I would appreciate it if someone would look at the template and either tell me how to correct it or go ahead and correct it. Is it that I used "units" instead of "unit"? That part of the usage instructions is not clear to me. Thanks in advance!

I see what your referring to and you did use an older style template for it.

I had went and updated the sticker for you and you can also see what I had used for it.

If you go to The Great War Template link (you had provided) and, select the "Parameter usage on profiles" link, you will see a huge list of the various approved parameters.

I just went and selected the closest one to what you were using and only changed the information that applied to that individual.

I hope I had explained this okay via text... :-)

Thanks for correcting the template, Brian! And also for spelling out the unit and rank. I do see what I did wrong from what you did.
It was my pleasure! :-)

Before retiring from the military, I was in a personnel section for years and am familiar with many (not all) of the Abbreviated terms.

Good Luck! :-)
