If you're on this page because of a DBE related to Template:United States Sticker - that's a problem with the template's documentation, not the use of the sticker on a profile.

Templates Project - Can I just delete "Base" as the subgroup?


posted by Liz (Noland) Shifflett
That is not controlled by the Base as a subgroup. United States Sticker is internal template for all state templates and shouldn't be used directly on profiles. Direct usage prevents additional changes to template, since nothing can be changed. Maybe it should be named differently, but we "inherited" it. This can be discussed further in Templates project.
