Each time I preview a post template is added at the bottom of a post.
I heard that supervisor know this problem but can't fix it.
So my suggestion is not using template in a post. Instead put template other position and let users copy it to a post themselves.

People are ignoring template even knowing they should not, and even knowing it can get them banned. Hoping they will copy/paste the template from somewhere else is a naivety.

I agree with Borek. There are already enough 1st-time posters that ignore the template when it is right in front of them, we can't expect people to actively copy-and-paste it into their posts consistently.

Homework forum posting bug

Is it possible to make the button which copy and paste automatically template into a post? That make it easier. There maybe other bottons which copy diferrent template for different type of questions. Because users questions are not restricted to problem type. So users choose the right template for their purpose and neglect template lesser.

I don't know if that is possible, but if it were then I believe many new members would ignore it -- I base this on the observation of all the new members who ignore instructions not to post homework outside of the designated homework forums.

It would be extra work for the Mentors to issue official Warnings to all the users who did not press that button.
