After aperfectring's changes to that page ("Updates for AperfectBot format"), this page no longer demonstrates the exact effects of using the expedition template. I find it confusing, and I think everybody who tries to figure out what that template does, will be confused as well. --ilpadre 16:20, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

I would be fine with changing it to exactly what the template produces. However, just reverting my edit will not do that. --aperfectring 16:31, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
My original edit to the page was made in ignorance of how that template works. Someone graciously made the changes to the template, so I just replaced my edits on the page with exactly what the template produces. Sorry for any confusion I may have produced. --aperfectring 16:38, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
Ilpadre: the purpose of the template and example changes is to help AperfectBot find the information it needs to update the Current events page. It wants a ==Location== or ==Planning== section and a ==Participants== section. When I saw Aperfectring's changes to the Example, I thought I had edited the Template to exactly match, with the exception of the partly filled in data. I changed the description of the Example page to reflect that it was an example including data. I didn't think it was bad to demonstrate ideas on filling it in, but clearly you found that confusing. Sorry for my part in the confusion. -Robyn 18:32, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
