The page stays the way it is unless there is consensus to change it. Slac speak up! 05:15, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Multiple names[edit]

This is a list of names. Therefore there doesn't need to be the same leader named twice, otherwise it becomes a timeline and defeats the purpose of the list. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.186.169.13 (talk) 09:11, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

See above comment. If there are disputed additions, then consensus must be achieved before it can be done. That is wikipedia policy. Timeshift (talk) 15:35, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
I find it unfathomable that people would edit war this template. Who cares if the same person appears multiple times or not? --Surturz (talk) 05:39, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Because it would throw it out from the rest of the leader templates? Consistency is needed. If there is consensus to change then so be it. Timeshift (talk) 05:43, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Maybe Surturz doesn't care but Wikpedia is important to a lot of people so I suggest who not make stupid suggestions like that. Firstly, I would draw Timeshift9's attention to the Australian Prime Minister list where Robert Menzies only appears once and the United Kingdom Prime Minister list where both Winston Churchill is listed only once and Harold Wilson is only list once despite Menzies, Churchill, and Wilson taking the leadership positions on separate occasions. The point I am making is that this list is out of consistency. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.177.166.195 (talk) 06:47, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

If we look at it from an Australian perspective, all leader templates have repeated leaders repeated. The PM template is the only one that doesn't, I argued for change on that but was defeated. And I note you say wikipedia is important to a lot of people - does that include you? Why not register for an account? People take users a lot more seriously than IPs.

Wikipedia is important to me, I don't like to see information or events misrepresented. I don't want to register an account because I would hate to end up a pompous, narrow minded, pathetic, moronic moderator like yourself who argues over a leadership list which has proven you wrong, time and time again. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.177.166.195 (talk) 07:15, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
A bit of a contradiction it would seem then. Timeshift (talk) 08:09, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
I'm not a moderator you dumb shit.
