Wikipedia:Templates for discussion

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Closing instructions

On this page, the deletion or merging of templates, except as noted below, is discussed. To propose the renaming of a template or templates, use Wikipedia:Requested moves.

How to use this page

What not to propose for discussion here

The majority of deletion and merger proposals concerning pages in the template namespace should be listed on this page. However, there are a few exceptions:

  • Stub templates
    Stub templates and categories should be listed at Categories for discussion, as these templates are merely containers for their categories, unless the stub template does not come with a category and is being nominated by itself.
  • Userboxes
    Userboxes should be listed at Miscellany for deletion, regardless of the namespace in which they reside.
  • Speedy deletion candidates
    If the template clearly satisfies a "general" or "template" criterion for speedy deletion, tag it with a speedy deletion template. For example, if you wrote the template and request its deletion, tag it with {{Db-author}}. If it is an unused, hardcoded instance or duplication of another template, tag it with {{Db-t3|~~~~~|name of other template}}.
  • Policy or guideline templates
    Templates that are associated with particular Wikipedia policies or guidelines, such as the speedy deletion templates, cannot be listed at Tfd separately. They should be discussed on the talk page of the relevant guideline.
  • Template redirects
    List at Redirects for discussion.

Reasons to delete a template

  1. The template violates some part of the template namespace guidelines, and can't be altered to be in compliance
  2. The template is redundant to a better-designed template
  3. The template is not used, either directly or by template substitution (the latter cannot be concluded from the absence of backlinks), and has no likelihood of being used
  4. The template violates a policy such as Neutral point of view or Civility and it can't be fixed through normal editing

Templates should not be nominated if the issue can be fixed by normal editing. Instead, you should edit the template to fix its problems. If the template is complex and you don't know how to fix it, WikiProject Templates may be able to help.

Templates for which none of these apply may be deleted by consensus here. If a template is being misused, consider clarifying its documentation to indicate the correct use, or informing those that misuse it, rather than nominating it for deletion. Initiate a discussion on the template talk page if the correct use itself is under debate.

Listing a template

To list a template for deletion or merging, follow this three-step process. Note that the "Template:" prefix should not be included anywhere when carrying out these steps (unless otherwise specified).

I Tag the template.
Add one of the following codes to the top of the template page:
  • If the template nominated is inline, do not add a newline between the Tfd notice and the code of the template.
  • If the template to be nominated for deletion is protected, make a request for the Tfd tag to be added, by posting on the template's talk page and using the {{editprotected}} template to catch the attention of administrators.
  • For templates designed to be substituted, add <noinclude>...</noinclude> around the Tfd notice to prevent it from being substituted alongside the template.
  • Do not mark the edit as minor.
  • Use an edit summary like
    Nominated for deletion; see [[Wikipedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]]
    or
    Nominated for merging; see [[Wikipedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]].
  • Before saving your edit, preview your edit to ensure the Tfd message is displayed properly.

Multiple templates: If you are nominating multiple related templates, choose a meaningful title for the discussion (like "American films by decade templates"). Tag every template with {{subst:tfd|heading=discussion title}} or {{subst:tfm|name of other template|heading=discussion title}} instead of the versions given above, replacing discussion title with the title you chose (but still not changing the PAGENAME code). Note that TTObot is available to tag templates en masse if you do not wish to do it manually.

Related categories: If including template-populated tracking categories in the Tfd nomination, add {{Catfd|template name}} to the top of any categories that would be deleted as a result of the Tfd, this time replacing template name with the name of the template being nominated. (If you instead chose a meaningful title for a multiple nomination, use {{Catfd|header=title of nomination}} instead.)

II List the template at Tfd.
Follow this link to edit today's Tfd log.

Add this text at the top, just below the -->:

  • For deletion:
    {{subst:tfd2|template name|text=Why you think the template should be deleted. ~~~~}}
  • For merging:
    {{subst:tfm2|template name|other template's name|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

If the template has had previous Tfds, you can add {{Oldtfdlist|previous Tfd without brackets|result of previous Tfd}} directly after the Tfd2/Catfd2 template.

Use an edit summary such as
Adding [[Template:template name]].

Multiple templates: If this is a deletion proposal involving multiple templates, use the following:

{{subst:tfd2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be deleted. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ). Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

If this is a merger proposal involving more than two templates, use the following:

{{subst:tfm2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|with=main template (optional)|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ), plus one more in |with=. |with= does not need to be used, but should be the template that you want the other templates to be merged into. Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

Related categories: If this is a deletion proposal involving a template and a category populated solely by templates, add this code after the Tfd2 template but before the text of your rationale:

{{subst:catfd2|category name}}
III Notify users.
Please notify the creator of the template nominated (as well as the creator of the target template, if proposing a merger). It is helpful to also notify the main contributors of the template that you are nominating. To find them, look in the page history or talk page of the template. Then, add one of the following:

to the talk pages of the template creator (and the creator of the other template for a merger) and the talk pages of the main contributors. It is also helpful to make any interested WikiProjects aware of the discussion. To do that, make sure the template's talk page is tagged with the banners of any relevant WikiProjects; please consider notifying any of them that do not use Article alerts.

Multiple templates: There is no template for notifying an editor about a multiple-template nomination: please write a personal message in these cases.

Consider adding any templates you nominate for Tfd to your watchlist. This will help ensure that the Tfd tag is not removed.

Twinkle

Twinkle is a convenient tool that can perform many of the functions of notification automatically. However, at present, it does not notify the creator of the other template in the case of a merger, so this step has to be performed manually. Twinkle also does not notify WikiProjects, although many of them have automatic alerts. It is helpful to notify any interested WikiProjects that don't receive alerts, but this has to be done manually.

Discussion

Anyone can join the discussion, but please understand the deletion policy and explain your reasoning.

People will sometimes also recommend subst or subst and delete and similar. This means the template text should be "merged" into the articles that use it. Depending on the content, the template page may then be deleted; if preserving the edit history for attribution is desirable, it may be history-merged with the target article or moved to mainspace and redirected.

Templates are rarely orphaned—that is, removed from pages that transclude them—before the discussion is closed. A list of open discussions eligible for closure can be found at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Old unclosed discussions.

  • Keep: for the following reasons: a) it was created to facilitate the Western Cape Libraries edit-a-thon that Wikimedia ZA would like to pick up on again after Wikimania 2018. As such it would be useful to keep the template around to help with the project in the future. b) it is not all red links (although it does still need a great deal of work to fill in the large number of red links). If people do wish to delete it then I will understand as there is a chance that the redlinks might remain red for the foreseeable future, but it would be unfortunate and a setback should the Libraries edit-a-thon pick up again. --Discott (talk) 11:32, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Unused, arbitrary cutoff Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 05:27, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know about this discussion. The cut-off period of 1922 isn't arbitrary. That's the date of Irish independence, so the courts listed on the template are those used while Ireland was part of the United Kingdom, and before 1801, a subsidiary kingdom to Great Britain. There was a whole other set of courts established under the 1922 Free State Constitution, and then under the 1937 Constitution if Ireland. However, I accept that it's unused. I created it last year, and had obviously intended to add it to the relevant pages. Could you put a stay on this for a period of two weeks to allow me to get back to this? —Iveagh Gardens (talk) 08:26, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Premature—let's update the articles now to use other sourcing. It's better to at least acknowledge that the article is sourced to something than nothing. The template already tags the citations with {{verify credibility}} (and maybe that should be switched to {{sps}}, but I digress) so it's not like we aren't already acknowledging the deficiencies of the source. Once the source is no longer in use, then we can delete the template. Imzadi 1979  14:24, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Template:Sandwiches

Redundant to List of sandwiches and Category:Sandwiches, and there's no way this navbox can contain either a comprehensive list of all sandwiches or a balanced, representative sampling. Ibadibam (talk) 06:03, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Template:Black Power movement

Enormous template, not helpful in navigation and unused Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 14:04, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep: The template size is largely due to the social movement spanning the time period from 1966 to 1975. A possible solution to the size issue is to create a Timeline of Black Power movement article and remove tangential sections and articles. The "not helpful in navigation" claim seems strange as the nav template unites articles on Wikipedia centered in this social movement. That is the point of nav templates. The claim that it is unused is true, but can be remedied by adding the template to listed articles. Deleting the template seems to be overkill for a template that only has issues to be addressed. Mitchumch (talk) 14:38, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep, a very good and needed template. It could be condensed a bit (too many sections or subsections, and court cases and possibly other links which had nothing to do with the topic) but this template is far from one which should be deleted. Why wasn't it added to some existing articles (many are tangential, Lyndon Johnson? this wasn't a military campaign) already? That's easily remedied. Overall, a nice template. Randy Kryn (talk) 14:54, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

Template:1939 shipwrecks

Unused, only links other templates Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 00:05, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

If you review the shipwreck templates for 1914 through 1918 and for 1939 through 1945, you will see that during the two world wars, shipwreck templates are by month unless the month of the shipwreck is unknown, in which case it goes into a template for the entire year. The template for the entire year also includes links to shipwreck templates for each month of the year. The only year that does not yet have any shipwrecks with unknown months is 1939, which is why the shipwreck template for 1939 is constructed the way it is. If you delete this template, you destroy the consistent pattern established for all other World War I and World War II yearly shipwreck templates without gaining anything worthwhile. You also make it impossible to navigate easily from one month to another within 1939, something possible in all other wartime years. I request that you retract this nomination for deletion and instead bring up the matter with WikiProject Shipwrecks on their discussion page. They could do a better job of discussing options there than this deletion discussion could. Better yet, improve Wikipedia by writing an article or two on 1939 shipwrecks with unknown dates and solve the "problem" – if it really is a problem – that way. Mdnavman (talk) 00:44, 20 June 2017 (UTC)mdnavman
Another issue to consider that would arise from deletion: If this template is deleted, it will make 1939 the only year between 1862 (currently; I continued to push the date back) and 2017 that does not have its own annual navigation template. This will be confusing for Wikipedia users, make quick navigation from 1938 to 1939 to 1940 much harder, and require resurrection of the 1939 template when ships with unknown dates have articles created. All without gaining anything for Wikipedia or its users.Mdnavman (talk) 14:35, 21 June 2017 (UTC)mdnavman
  • keep, part of a series, and there are a few links which could be added when the articles are written. Frietjes (talk) 14:58, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete. We should not be linking to templates from within templates in this way. The point is to keep the reader in mainspace, they wouldn't expect to and shouldn't end up in template space. If they were reading SS Castillo de Olite and clicked on the "1940" link at the bottom, they'd end up at Template:1940 shipwrecks which is a pretty much useless place to be. Maybe a {{Shipwrecks by month}} template should be created, similar to {{WWII shipwrecks}} which provides better navigation. --Rob Sinden (talk) 15:06, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Template:Masculinism sidebar

Redundant to Template:Masculism sidebar -- apparently self-consciously so, given the "related template" note at the top and display of the sidebar on many articles, just above/below the other. Part of a long list of dubious edits in this area that could use additional attention. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 17:42, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep It has a different design and has more topics than the other template. This sidebar is part of the Portal:Masculinism. It is better designed and has more topics on it, is more up to date. So if a template should be deleted, it should be the other template. Or it should be merged.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Rævhuld (talkcontribs) 18:55, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
  • delete. If you think of improvements for an existing template, you should not do it by creating another template. The problem with that primarily is someone might use it, then there are two templates serving the same function, being updated, diverging and causing confusion. So make any improvements in the template sandbox, then propose your changes on the template talk page. Though frankly this is not better designed, it looks far worse with an unnecessarily garish design that should never be used in a template, and is very unlikely to be merged.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 20:14, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Merge: In principle we should change all references (in this template and others, and in the Portal name) from Masculinism to Masculism (which I marginally prefer because it's shorter) or vice versa, while ensuring that no links get lost in the process. I also prefer the gentler soft blue look of the masculism sidebar, but that's a minor point. The Masculism article already mentions Masculinism as an alternative name, and that seems adequate.

  • I had a reasonable discussion with both users, and we've all unanimously agreed to remove the template in the basis that the correlation between Activison and Blizzard Entertainment is minimal at best, and that the generalisation of categories works to the template's disadvantage.

Or, wait... maybe, it is just fancruft, a list of stuff that only interests those who know exactly what it is. Wait! If they know exactly what it is, are they still interested in it? Of course, it is our WP:NAVBOX that says navboxes must have no red links. —Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 06:35, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
    • Actually, the NAVBOX page does not say that navboxes cannot have red links. It says that red and blue should only be used as link colors and that red and blue should not be used as background or other text colors. That being said, however, the information presented in this template is listed in Norfolk Southern Railway#Heritage fleet and it seems unlikely right now that any of the individual locomotives listed therein would, at some future date, become notable enough to surpass the WP:GNG. It is for the notability of the subject matter that I would agree with the delete discussion. If the individual locomotives become notable, we can add articles at that time.

Thumb firmly in the middle. Actually, with the format footer at the bottom, there are sixteen links in the template, but point taken. Seems to me a logical solution would be to combine the Jazz and Smooth Jazz templates, which would end up with three stations total. Mlaffs (talk) 21:16, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
I'm not opposed to that suggestion.Stereorock (talk) 01:25, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
@TenPoundHammer:Sure there's a navigational purpose: in each of the (Radio Format) in Massachusetts page that has a template, there is a link to all available templates, including Jazz stations in New Jersey. There IS a Jazz station in Massachusetts, WICN . There may be more stations playing Jazz in Massachusetts that nobody has included yet (do we count WGBH, WOMR, WUMD, et al., which play Jazz part-time?). But, the navigational purpose is thus: clicking on Jazz Stations in Ma. takes you to that template; there IS a Jazz station in Massachusetts: WICN. Navigation, using the template, has worked. Also, stations do flip formats, so who's to say there won't be another station flipping to Jazz in the future? Now, getting rid of this template would reduce clicking on Jazz from any other Ma. radio template to redirecting to the generic Jazz music article, which isn't what clicking on the template is supposed to do. If anything, it would be better to have no link than a link to an article that isn't what the link is supposed to connect to.Stereorock (talk) 01:24, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep It's not unused, there is a station which broadcasts Mainstream Rock in Rhode Island, WHJY. Therefore, it IS used. Besides, nothing in WP:TCSD warrants its deletion.Stereorock (talk) 21:21, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
  • @Stereorock: Because what point is there navigation-wise if there's only one link? It doesn't take you to or from anywhere. Precedent is that we delete templates if they don't sufficiently navigate. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 23:26, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
@TenPoundHammer:Actually, it DOES. When you click on each of the available formats in Rhode Island, they either go TO one of these templates of stations (which is useful) or to the musical genre itself when there are no stations (not useful). If I ask myself "is there a Mainstream Rock station in Rhode Island?", I can click on the any of the (Radio Format) in Rhode Island templates, & find Mainstream Rock down at the bottom. Another factor: stations change formats; who's to say that there may not be 2 Mainstream Rock stations in Rhode Island in the future? Rhode Island, due to its small size, only has a limited number of available frequencies (unlike, say, California, where there very well may be 30 Mainstream Rockers/A.O.R.s in the whole state), but currently, WHJY is a Mainstream Rocker/A.O.R. station & it can be gotten to by using this template. The template is valid. If there were no stations in a given format, you may have a point, but seeing how there is, and we cannot predict if other stations will or won't flip formats (something stations quite often do), it makes sense to keep this template.Stereorock (talk) 01:10, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Hey, Peter and Gordon had plenty to do with the Beatles(!) ... I agree, though, and I'd say it's bordering on trivia. (In the same way, we have articles on Beatles family members that really aren't worthy of an article: e.g. the only notable thing about Alfred Lennon, Jim and Mary McCartney and George Toogood Smith is that they had a familial relationship with an extremely famous musician.) As someone who works a lot on Wikipedia's Beatles articles, I don't think it would be any great loss to see the template gone. I was looking for other, similar examples, and there are only three: Template:People associated with The Beach Boys, Template:People associated with Public Interest Research Group and Template:People associated with Green Corps – so perhaps they all belong here at TfD. JG66 (talk) 05:15, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Strong Oppose, The Beatles hold such an important place in world history, in the history of the era, and of music in general, that this template should stay. The associated and listed names are a large part of the history, and losing it would necessitate greatly expanding other Beatle templates. The template could be trimmed a bit (Ed Sullivan, Donovan, etc. and other semi-tangential links), but kept on board. Randy Kryn (talk) 00:07, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
    @Randy Kryn: So it's "important" that [insert act here] rubbed shoulders with the beatles once? There's no clear criteria for what should be included. Obviously, something like George Martin or Wings would be included, but what do Peter and Gordon have to do with the Beatles? Or many of the other acts here? This clearly fails WP:PERFNAV.

Less tangentially, Lennon and McCartney wrote several songs for Peter and Gordon between 1964 and 1966, such as "A World Without Love"; "Nobody I Know"; "I Don't Want to See You Again"; and "Woman". --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 08:03, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
    One thing this discussion shows so far is that, even with the precise content being a peripheral subject, no one here's in agreement over who belongs in the template and who doesn't! (e.g. Donovan's way more "associated" than some of the names that appear; Wings aren't included.) Which goes some way to support the idea that the criteria for inclusion's unclear, or at least that it's highly subjective. In the past, the question of associated acts in the infobox at the Beatles has led to some differences of opinion. There are some guidelines on this at Template:Infobox musical artist, so perhaps something similar is needed in Template:People associated with The Beatles, if it is to be kept. Another thing: Randy Kryn, I fail to see how losing this template would mean "greatly expanding other Beatle templates" – why, and which ones? JG66 (talk) 07:37, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
    "Rubbed shoulders with the Beatles once" is an incorrect definition of this template, which of course should be trimmed and organized and have a better and higher inclusion bar. Maybe not 'greatly expanding' other templates, but the main Beatles template doesn't include Brian Epstein or George Martin, so would have to include a section of 'Associated people', and then again it runs into who should or should not be included. Keeping this one and working it into a better form would keep the Wikipedia-map quality of the template and Beatles history while providing information of interest to serious Beatle fans or researchers.

Template:115th United States Senate Roll Call

unused Frietjes (talk) 16:40, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

It is a template off of which things can be customized. Template:115th United States Senate Roll Call helped in building Template:Trump confirmations and Template:Trump confirmations2. You can see it being used in Neil Gorsuch Supreme Court nomination#Confirmation_vote. Although the template isn't invoked in the traditional sense, it is still used on Wikipedia. It saves editors the painstaking process in building their own version of the table when the time comes to display a United States Senate vote on articles. Additionally, it keeps those tables somewhat uniform in style. As 115th United States Congress ends on January 3, 2019, there is still ample time for this template to serve its purpose. I hope that it will be kept, but understand otherwise. (Please ping when you respond)Classicwiki (talk) 16:53, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
Classicwiki, I would suggest either (a) moving it to project space if it's meant to be cut-and-paste, (b) turning it into a proper template where you can supply votes for each of the names and substitute it to get the resulting table. Frietjes (talk) 22:14, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
Still feel very new to Wikipedia. What project space would you recommend? I can't picture what your saying in the second option. When you invoke a template, doesn't it come as is (barring any changes to size/state)? How would I go about doing your second option? Is there another template where I can see this in action?

  • Keep per WP:NAVBOX. This navigation template helps readers navigate from one of Jeremy Sims's films to another. There is overwhelming precedent to have these kinds of templates for directors. If it was two films, that can be debatable, but three is a pretty comfortable threshold, considering the assumption that each film article would otherwise have to mention the other two films. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 18:33, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
    To update, the template was indeed being unused for some reason, but Frietjes has since added it to the film articles, essentially putting it into use. That leaves WP:NENAN, and I've already stated the existing precedent to have such templates so readers can cross-navigate between a director's works. The so-called "rule of five" is purely a minority viewpoint and inapplicable for this particular category. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 19:11, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Unused tennis performance timelines

unused, but I see that there is discussion at WT:Tennis. I would suggest moving these to project/userspace until there is consensus to deploy them. if they are deployed, there is no reason to keep the stats in a separate template. you could just put the tables in the article directly, so no need for a template-space version. this is how it's done for Module:Sports table. Frietjes (talk) 23:51, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep: A tennis performance timeline may appear in two places: the player's main article, and the player's career statistics article, e.g., Roger Federer and Roger Federer career statistics. These tables have complex calculations of numbers that duplicating tables incurs maintenance overhead and risks inconsistency, so it remains appropriate that statistics are coded at one single place. Then, template options can select relevant parts of the table to display in respective articles. Since these are subpages of the parent template Template:Tennis performance timeline, which is still under development, I see no need to move them elsewhere. Chinissai (talk) 02:11, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
    • Chinissai, for tables used in two places, we have WP:LST. for example, see UEFA Euro 1996#Group C which is transcluded from UEFA Euro 1996 Group C. Frietjes (talk) 12:57, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
      • From what I understand, LST doesn't work for these timelines. We need to represent a subset of the data in the main article, but the full table in the statistics article, using the same input source. LST doesn't allow this customization. Chinissai (talk) 14:01, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
        • Chinissai, you can definitely do that with an LST transclusion. the easiest method would be to wrap a particular parameter value inside of a <noinclude>...</noinclude>. or, there are other more sophisticated methods using the frame and parent in LUA. or, you can do what we do with module:sports table. for example, check the table in 2016–17 Borussia Dortmund season#International Champions Cup which is transcluded from the table in 2016 International Champions Cup#China. that method uses <onlyinclude>...</onlyinclude>, which again doesn't require a separate template for the table.

          • I tried two things in the past few days: using LST on existing contents in top-players articles, and attempting to use LST with the performance timeline template. The LST usage on existing contents is being rejected right away as having no consensus, although some articles started to adopt that. On using the template with LST, it can be challenging and error-prone at times to control which part of the source article to be transcluded. I am worried that LST would be too complicated for the tennis community to adopt. Given my impression that the tennis community is reluctant to changes, I would propose that we keep the traditional template transclusion as an option until we have a clearer way forward.

  • Delete or at least move to userspace. Based on the discussions at the tennis wikiproject, there is no consensus in actually using these templates versus using the tables that are currently being used. Adamtt9 (talk) 16:07, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
    • Not having consensus does not mean it is not likely to be used. According to deletion policy, this does not result in template deletion.
