Parameter for Editor?

I raised a couple of questions on the CPDL forum; there could be a whole continuum uploader-scanner-reformatter-editor, but undefined 'contributor' seems problematic to me. Why not just add a 2nd parameter to Template:Editor? Richard Mix (talk) 02:36, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi Richard, you're right. On second thought, this template is completely unnecessary. Template: Editor already has a parameter |edtype=, to which can be appended any of the options you cite (uploader/scanner/reformatter/editor). In fact, this template makes use of that parameter to display the word "Contributor" instead of Editor. But maybe the best solution is to create individual parameters, one for each of these roles. —Carlos (talk) 17:37, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
