Trim entries[edit]

This template has sections that are long and difficult to manage. It lists everything that exists, which makes it overlap with the respective categories. Templates and categories shouldn't overlap. This template should highlight important media players for easy navigation instead of being a dumping ground for everything that exists. Determining importance would probably lead to some bickering, but a big first step would be to remove players that are obsolete. Miami33139 (talk) 21:09, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

I understand your concern; however, deleting any media player from the list or giving it higher priority means infernal non-ending bombardment criticism until someone comes and revert the edit. All of these media players have claim of notability.
However, I have just deleted a truckload of irrelevant links. I hope that satisfied you. Fleet Command (talk) 12:30, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
I hope it is less of junkyard now. Fleet Command (talk) 12:47, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
