Do we need db-p1?[edit]

Moved to Wikipedia talk:Criteria for speedy deletion#Do we need db-p1?

db-multiple url2= support for copyvio and other issues[edit]

When using {{db-g12}}, it's possible to specify several URLs with urlN= parameters.

When using {{db-multiple}} as recommended to avoid to request permission when other issues exist, it's not possible to specify such extra URLs. --Dereckson (talk) 03:16, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

You can just leave several speedy templates, as in the time before {{db-multiple}} existed. It seems a fairly cosmetic issue to me. —Kusma (t·c) 10:12, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
  • I'm not sure why you would need to list any URLs in most cases now that Db-g12 has a link to the comprehensive copyvios report using The Earwig's tool. This tool scans the page for any URLs that are already on the page (scans all the reference URLs) and does a Google search for other possible copyvios and then returns a report of the possibility of violation for each page and you can view each finding in specific detail or view the overall report with comparison. That said, Db-g12 only supports up to 3 URLs, and now Db-multiple does as well. Please, do not make the administrators have to work harder than needed and if the report is convincing enough, leave the URLs out... — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 13:51, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Expand A10 parameters?[edit]

Should we expand the parameters of the a10 template to accommodate specifications of multiple copied articles? The current template, as well as WP:CSD states that this criterion applies to "article[s]...that [do] not expand upon, detail or improve information within any existing article(s)". This wording implies that it will also apply to newly created articles that copy multiple other ones. In addition, there have been cases where this has actually occurred with new articles. I thought that this template was capable of referencing more than one article that was copied. However, upon further inspection, I found that this was not the case. It would be much more convenient to be able to reference all duplicated articles with a single notice, as this obviously takes up less space than a separate tag for each duplicated article. Would it be advantageous to edit the template so this is possible? Eventhorizon51 (talk) 05:15, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
