Usage guideline[edit]

First of all, let me congratulate Cast on yet another great contribution to anarchism on wikipedia; there was a clear need for this template. It might be useful to discuss in which articles and in which manner this template ought to be used instead of Template:Anarchism sidebar. I can think of a few potential cases:

  • Articles such as Haymarket Riot which are particularly cluttered with images and other sidebar material.
  • Stub articles in which Template:Anarchism sidebar would compete with even one image for sidebar space.
  • Articles that are not directly related to anarchism such that Template:Anarchism sidebar would give undue weight to anarchism. I'm thinking especially here about biographical articles where the individual concerned is notable for factors other than anarchism.

In any case, I think it's important we use the two templates consistently. Any thoughts? Skomorokh incite 09:39, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

The horizontal bar also features a more prominent circle-flag next to the Anarchism Portal link, thus drawing a reader's attention. This is meant to also replace the Template:Anarchism portal. It can replace both the vertical and portal templates in stubs where, as you note, there is little side bar space. This is less important in larger articles, where there is room for separate vertical and portal templates. The vertical template need not depreciate the separate portal template. (And besides, I tried putting the flag in the vertical template, and it just didn't look good.¯\(º_o)/¯)
And thank you for your kind words. It's nice to be appreciated.--Cast (talk) 10:49, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
It looks professional and the little flag is cool lookin too. Gwen Gale (talk) 02:59, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
This one is so big, it would look crazy in stubbier articles without the hide/show thing being defaulted to hide. But it seems like the other one is gonna be more appropriate for some articles, I wouldnt' get rid of it yet. Murderbike (talk) 04:49, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
I more than agree that it is oversized, but seeing as I wanted to mirror the vertical template, I didn't want to omit anything. I did compensate for this by setting the default to hide. We will eventually have to face the overpopulation issue in the vertical template, and when that is done we can address the horizontal template accordingly. Until then, I would say there is nothing to worry about. Any talk of changes to both templates can be carried out in the vertical template talk page. Talk in this article should be considered specific to only this template.
And Gwen, thank you for your appreciation.--Cast (talk) 05:05, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
I've just thrown together a talkheader (see above) to direct users to the main template talkpage. Feel free to modify it for tone/accuracy as you all see fit. Skomorokh incite 05:18, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Propose adding Class struggle[edit]

It's a big issue, central to syndicalism, communism and social anarchism generally. We should add it, probably under Theory / Practice. Any objections? Chaikney (talk) 21:47, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

So it's discussed it on the other template talk page, but may as well mention here that I've added it. Chaikney (talk) 20:19, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
Just for future reference, content discussions take place on the sidebar talkpage; this is mirror (see notice above). Skomorokh 21:18, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Adding Polycentric law?[edit]

Would it be a School of thought or a theory & practice? 98.246.62.216 (talk) 13:29, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

Theory and practice; it's a concept, not an ideology (the ideology would be "polycentrism", or panarchism).  Skomorokh, barbarian  15:13, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
