Template:MG (edit|talk|history|links|logs|delete)
Template:MG/1 (edit|talk|history|links|logs|delete)

Appears to be some sort of method of grouping templates together and assigning "ownership" of them. Should just group templates together using categories and ownership should not be implied. WOSlinker (talk) 20:24, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Keep – This template makes no attempt to assign authorship or ownership. It merely allows experienced editors to volunteer to assist other users with the use of certain complex templates. There is certainly nothing sinister about Template:MG. Yours aye,  Buaidh  20:38, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion so a clearer consensus may be reached.

  • Keep, nothing about ownership, better than categories (easy to notice) Bulwersator (talk) 08:18, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete {{maintained}} is a much better template. There doesn't seem to be a wikiproject attached to this MG thing either. 76.65.128.132 (talk) 05:46, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Template:Newm (edit|talk|history|links|logs|delete)

Unused, purpose unclear Bulwersator (talk) 09:25, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Comment The {{newm}} template is used by {{newc}}. I developed {{newc}} and {{newm}} along with helper templates {{newc/h1}} and {{newm/h1}} as a possible solution to the problem of conversations being scattered among many different talk pages. If these four templates are deleted, then the four pages listed at Special:Prefixindex/Template:Newc/Conversations should also be deleted. « D. Trebbien (talk) 14:17, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Comment Template:newc/h1 does very weird things in templatespace... it creates templates of the form "Template:newc/Conversations/xyz" to hold conversations???!! 70.24.244.248 (talk) 07:07, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

    • @Trebbien - is it possible to add documentation? And it sounds like duplicate of {{Talkback}} Bulwersator (talk) 08:20, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
  • delete, it appears to move conversation threads to template space (see here), which is not a great idea. we should keep talk page threads in talk space. Frietjes (talk) 18:28, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Template:Noarticletext preload (edit|talk|history|links|logs|delete)

Unused, purpose unclear Bulwersator (talk) 09:22, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Comment this is a preload template. Prior to MediaWiki v 1.17, it was impossible to add categories or documentation to these things. This template definitely predates 1.17. Preload templates are used by article wizards to add a basic framework, so I expect that there's an article wizard somewhere that uses this as a blank article starting point. Article wizards will not show up in the "what links here" listing. 70.24.244.248 (talk) 07:18, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Template:Geograph (edit|talk|history|links|logs|delete)

This tag is used for images which should now be uploaded to Commons directly. I feel that as it is no longer used on any files it's possibly obselete. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 22:08, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Recently discussed at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2011 December 4#Template:Geograph, "The result of the discussion was no consensus", discussion there closed on 18 December 2011. Has the situation changed since then? — Richardguk (talk) 05:54, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
There was little participation there. IMO it should have been relisted. I didn't find Thincat's arguments in the previous discussion particularly compelling: in particular, it remains the case that the only reason this has tranclusions is because it's linked to from {{UK image sources}}.

It is unused (without transclusions) but it should be also orphaned - but there are also links from Category namespace. Maybe we should move "Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in X" categories to commons? Bulwersator (talk) 08:24, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Template:Shahrukh Khan (edit|talk|history|links|logs|delete)

Actors should not have templates which include their list of work and awards. ShahidTalk2me 15:20, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Such Templates are needed for every Actors, because we can put such templates in any of their movies, so the viewers wouldn't require to go to their page (the respective celebrity) here Shahrukh Khan, just to know the name of the movies featuring those celebrities. Again if template of actors is not important then why is this for -> Template:Farhan Akhtar films? Isn't Farhan Akhtar an actor.


But I m not being a administrator, I can't help myself.. OK if it's nominated to be deleted then do whatever you want keeping in mind my discussion.

These movies were one time only part of a movie festival. I don't see the need for a template. William 02:16, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
