This link was added to the template by [[126.96.36.199]. I don't think he is that notable so I took him off but also wanted other peoples opinion on it. I also asked 188.8.131.52 on his talk page. DeflagroContribs/Talk 00:24, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
Add Bill Johnston (pirate) in famous pirates!
I consider him to be important enough to warrant a place in this template. He has enjoyed a certain fame since his presence on Sid Meier's Pirates. I vote yea. Witbcoedus 23:14, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
That article seems like a stub since the intro is longer than the article. Also I am in the process of redoing this template because we had a few complaints of it being intrusive. The new one will be a banner along the bottom of the page. DeflagroC/T 23:29, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
After looking at a few other articles on the template I have added Roche Braziliano DeflagroC/T 02:18, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
I added Ushkuiniks to the list of types of pirates in the template. They're pirates, the article is a pain in the ass to find otherwise and maybe with some more exposure it'll get filled out more. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:40, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
the template's looking awesome, but it's really getting huge now.. I was just wondering on the viability of creating a separate template with just a timeline of piracy - opinions? shasYarr!/T|C 09:08, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
The "famous pirates" section needs to be reduced significantly. I mean, do we really need to list every single one of them? Maybe we should just reduce the list to only the most famous ones, and direct the readers to a more exhaustive article/list. I think everyone appreciates the fact that someone tried to alphabetically organize all of the names for easier navigation, but still; the way the template looks now, it's probably the largest template I've ever seen on Wikipedia.--220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:08, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
I can't read most of the names of the famous pirates. I think that portion of the template needs to be condensed to a list. --Son (talk) 02:13, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Could someone add Jack Sparrow to the Fictional Pirates section? Because Jack Sparrow has been in three(and soon to be four), Pirate films(Pirates of the Caribbean). Therefore, Jack Sparrow NEEDS to be in this Template. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:46, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Done. Request is the same as those above by the same IP editor. Not really a "type of pirate" so I've included it under Miscellaneous. St★lwart111 23:31, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
