Promotional singles[edit]

I've removed the "Promotional singles" group from the template as the only internal link in there "Writing's on the Wall" was a redirect to The Defamation of Strickland Banks which is already listed in the template. Furthermore, I think most promotional singles are not very notable so won't have articles created for them and any that do meet the notability guidelines can be listed in the "Singles" group.

Number of groups/articles in navbox[edit]

(See WP:NAV) "A navigation template is a grouping of links used in multiple related articles to facilitate navigation between those articles". Some of the properties of navboxes:

Navigation templates provide navigation within Wikipedia.

Compared to some artists (such as The Beatles, Bob Marley, Jay-Z etc), Plan B's discography is still quite small - he has only released two (soon to be three) albums so far - so for now I think it's best to minimise the number of groups and just have albums in one group and singles in another, rather than listing what singles came from each album, which I think makes the template look cluttered. In future a new "Plan B singles" template can be created (after around twenty or thirty singles) then I think listing the singles by each album would be appropriate.

Navigation templates provide navigation between existing articles.

Songs/albums without articles should not be included in the template as they are not useful for any navigation purposes. Songs such as "Missing Links" and "No More Eatin'" should not be included as they are currently re-directs to another article and upcoming albums and singles such as The Ballad of Belmarsh should not be included until the article has been written - Ellm6 (talk) 22:22, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

Acting[edit]

I've removed the list of films he has acted in. Wikipedia:Manual of Style (film)#Navigation: "WikiProject consensus is against including actor templates...". Before you re-add it, please take a look at other templates and see that other actors don't have their templates. Even Template:Tom Hanks.
