Now I see this in use I'm wondering if maroon is the right colour. Could it be confused with "needed-page" red?

Of course , red = danger, so it's logical in that sense.--Bob M 05:33, 14 October 2012 (CDT)

An alternative might be to not use any special color but instead to link that asterisk to a Teflpedia article that explains the conventional use of an asterisk to denote an example of "wrong" language. The linked asterisk could be simply the default blue link color perhaps? --Roger 12:54, 14 October 2012 (CDT)
It's a solution, but that would be to understated IMHO. I'm not saying that the the existing one is really bad - it just sometimes confuses me for half a second. What about a smaller font size?--Bob M 13:09, 14 October 2012 (CDT)
Hard to say without seeing it. Maybe some experimentation at say template:wrong1, template:wrong2, template:wrong3 etc. might help. I'll present permutation at Template:Wrong/Dev. --Roger 13:50, 14 October 2012 (CDT)
Small text, as demonstrated as "wrong1" on Template:Wrong/Dev, is problematic because default text sizes are so ridiculously small in common browsers (I'm using Firefox v16) that going even smaller is simply not advisable. Perhaps could be used in addition to a color change but I'd not use small size alone. As it happens I had to adjust my browser preferences to even see this change because for years now I have set my browsers minimum font size to 14 out of exasperation with minuscule text. --Roger 14:14, 14 October 2012 (CDT)
Ah. On my super big monitor everything is set really big as I don't like wearing gasses. So I'm not the best test subject. Perhaps italic/maroon? That should should sufficiently non-red-link-like. if it's horrible it's no big deal.--Bob M 15:39, 14 October 2012 (CDT)
