I don't know about other templates—they may actually need frequent change. This particular template doesn't need an Edit button because the template is a) complete b) if it needs to be changed, I'll be the first to do it (and even if I miss it. I don't need an ugly Edit button there to make the changes. It's not like this template changes every week—the last time it needed change was before Wikipedia even existed!

Hey, here's an idea—why don't we put dozens of Edit buttons on the perimeter of the template just for the heck of it (one is just too small, after all; what if someone does not notice it?)--Ëzhiki (erinaceus europeaus) 04:20, Aug 21, 2004 (UTC)

It is convenient for wikipros and for newcomers. Acknowledge it. Whether this needs frequent editing or not is pointless. Should we remove the edit button from the hundred or so articles that haven't been touched in months, or even years? --Cantus 05:31, Aug 22, 2004 (UTC)
The difference is that this is not an article—this is a template, it serves as a part of navigational interface. I've checked the replies of others regarding the Edit buttons in other templates, and so far I have not seen one person supporting them. If no one wants them, why should you still be right? Have you at least tried to conduct a survey whether or not these buttons are necessary? Believe me, if the majority of people agrees they are necessary, I'll be among the first adding the Edit button to other templates. So far you are just trying to outstubborn everyone who does not want these buttons without even trying to gain any support or explain why we should deface all of the templates for so-called "convenience" of editing them. It's not like there is no other way to edit them, there are at least two I know of, and they are not all that hard.--Ëzhiki (erinaceus europeaus) 16:38, Aug 22, 2004 (UTC)

Economic regions of Russia[edit]

Unlike federal districts, economic regions are not really subdivisions. They are used mostly for economic purposes as they cover the territories that were historically located in similar economic conditions. They are not "administrative" per se. I am going to remove them from the template.—Ëzhiki (erinaceus europeaus) 16:27, Mar 23, 2005 (UTC)

Nevertheless the E.Regions like the F.Districts group the F.Subjects. The template is not called "administrative subdivisions". But maybe the term subdivision already implies this? If so, my version with the E.Regions could cause confusion. Of course even if it does not imply administration then it can cause confusion. Just notice that even the term adminstration is not clear. admins are not only found in government.

statistical purposes - that's administration of data. can we maybe reinsert the E.Regions and state they are not ... (please fill in) Tobias Conradi 01:07, 24 Mar 2005 (UTC)
