I notice that on 15 September someone (several IPs) changed all transclusions of this template to references with text simulating the header line. --teb728 05:14, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Yes, instead of simply changing the template they went through and replaced it everywhere with little broken bits of wikicode. Ugly ugly solution. I think I will change this template to something more like what they were trying to do and transclude it back everywhere.--Srleffler 07:00, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
I ended up writing a new template, {{Nobel physics laureate}}, which produced just a simple banner that linked to the main list of laureates. Unfortunately, the next day another user went through and changed the template tags on every article to point here. I strongly disagree with this, but I'm not certain where best to bring it up for discussion. This template is really too big to appear on articles. This volume of information is much better handled with a list than a navbox, and there is little advantage to the navbox. It just adds a redundant copy of the same information, that has to be maintained and kept up to date.--Srleffler 02:23, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Reorganizing[edit]

All of the other Nobel categories have a main template that lists every winner and several 25-year block templates that are less ugly to be included in the individual articles. I'm switching this over to that model. --140.180.19.132 22:06, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
