Template failure[edit]

This template is no longer floating on the right side of the page like it used to: e.g. Rule utilitarianism. It is thus breaking the many pages it appears on. Singinglemon (talk) 22:39, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Works here. What browser are you using? Chris Cunningham (not at work) - talk 17:00, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Still looks broken to me. I'm using Mozilla Firefox Singinglemon (talk) 13:39, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
I've decided just to flatten the template out and present it in one column. Should be fixed now. Can you check? Chris Cunningham (not at work) - talk 11:27, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
It looks fine now, it's floating correctly to the right. I should have explained more clearly that the problem was that the box was floating in the middle of the page. I've had a good look at the edit history and the edit which caused it to happen was this one: [1]. Singinglemon (talk) 18:16, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Animal welfare[edit]

I'm not sure why animal welfare is linked to from this template. There is a kind of link, as can be seen in the quote from Robert Nozick in the section Animal welfare#animal welfarism. But putting animal welfare in the template seems like giving the connection undue weight.

I am also dubious about the inclusion of Abolitionism (bioethics). This is an interesting concept that can be argued from a utilitarian point of view, but I don't think it is really part of utilitarianism. If no one replies soon, I will remove the links to both articles from the template. Yaris678 (talk) 23:24, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
Both Animal welfare and Abolitionism (bioethics) have now been removed. Yaris678 (talk) 19:44, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
