Concerning this edit summary, the death is still on the "In the News" section of the Main page, and WP:BDP gives the "recent death" timeframe as the range of "six months, one year, two years at the outside", given that this is a suicide (again, see WP:BDP on that) that happened a week ago, it is still very much a recent death. This is reflected in the two discussions at WP:BLPN and the talk page discussion at Talk:Robin Williams. If you disagree you are welcome to start a talk page discussion and see if there is an agreement about this, but Wikipedia policy and the prior discussions do not reflect your reasoning. Unless consensus changes, it's a recent death and subject to the BLP policy, and you removing the appropriate template will be reverted until a consensus shows otherwise. - Aoidh (talk) 08:42, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

The current BLP policy and current consenus is to only use blp=yes for living people and blpo=yes for controversial deaths such as murders. This is a clear case of suicide so is not controversial. --Racklever (talk) 08:52, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Do you have a link to this current consensus you're referring to? Because placing blpo on the page is inaccurate and directly contradicts the policy's wording which makes its use inappropriate (see the discussions), and your definition of controversial is not reflected by the BLP policy. So again, before removing that parameter showing that BLP applies to the article's subject (which it does), please discuss it on the article talk page and get a consensus for it. - Aoidh (talk) 08:55, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
template:blpo was obviously created by consensus for controversial deaths. Marking some-one as alive who is dead is a clear violation of current BLP policy and WP:COMMON. --Racklever (talk) 09:22, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't think claiming the BLPO was created for recent deaths is obvious at all, nor does there seem to be any discussion, let alone consensus, reflecting this. BLPO is for many things, recent deaths is not one of them (also deaths!=recent deaths). Saying that the BLP policy covers the recently deceased (which is what blp=yes does) is not a violation of the BLP policy. It's not "marking someone alive who is dead", it's filling a parameter: "Is the article's subject directly covered by the BLP policy?" the answer is yes, therefore blp=yes. - Aoidh (talk) 09:28, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, cyclist and fruit lover, for quality articles on cyclists such as Daniel Fleeman, for images, for watching over biographies and find references for death, for tireless updates to talk pages of biographies - you are an awesome Wikipedian!
