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

unused. Frietjes (talk) 17:04, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

It is used, only on sandbox and talk pages for the moment, but it is planned to be used in the article Chinese classifier, when certain discussion topics regarding that page are sorted out. If it's deleted, then it will become inconvenient to show on the talk page and sandbox how the article will look if certain changes are made. W. P. Uzer (talk) 20:30, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion so a clearer consensus may be reached.
Please add new comments below this notice. Thanks, Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 23:33, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

The template is now in live use at Chinese classifier. W. P. Uzer (talk) 09:45, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
what is the connection to CSU? you should really pick a more descriptive name here, like {{uline}}. Frietjes (talk) 18:40, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
OK, I moved it to Template:Colored strong underline. But if nobody else has any use for the name "csu" for a template, I'd like to keep the redirect, since it saves typing (and that abbreviation is currently used in all existing instances). W. P. Uzer (talk) 11:13, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Template:Infobox Chola (edit|talk|history|links|logs|delete)

This template, which is now a wrapper of Template:Infobox royalty, is used on 27 articles about the kings of the Chola dynasty. It's not very useful as a wrapper, so it could be substituted with Infobox royalty and deleted. eh bien mon prince (talk) 11:57, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Category:Texas county highway navigational boxes (edit|talk|history|logs|delete)

These templates should all be deleted per past precedents to deprecate and delete such navboxes. Templates for the U.S. state of Georgia were all deleted in May 2013, Washington state in July 2012 and Michigan in December 2011. Past nominations have centered around using categories such as Category:Transportation in Anderson County, Texas to group the articles instead of these navboxes. Should the remaining missing navboxes be created, there would be 254 total such templates for Texas, 24 of which would appear at the bottom of Interstate 10 in Texas. That article has 14 of them split into a group of 6 and a group of 8. Imzadi 1979  23:01, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Delete WP:NENAN. --Rschen7754 23:28, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Delete - Nominator and Rschen say it best. TCN7JM 23:34, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Save - The arguments by Imzadi1979 to delete are all valid but I disagree. (a) No Texas highway navbox that I've seen breaks the "rule of five" spelled out in WP:NENAN. (b) I find it useful that the navbox is the only place where all highways in a county are listed, including those without articles. (c) The Transportation in xxx County category only lists the highways with articles, leaving the reader to wrongly assume that's all there are. (d) The vast majority of highways span from 1 to a few counties, so the number of navboxes is low. (e) I've only created 1 or 2 of these navboxes. The proposal would delete a lot of time and effort by others and I can appreciate how they might not like it. Djmaschek (talk) 02:11, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
    • "I find it useful that the navbox is the only place where all highways in a county are listed, including those without articles." - they're supposed to be listed in the articles on the county. Ditto for c). d) Interstate 10 in Texas? e) That's a red herring, if we followed that logic, we should be keeping all the spam and all the articles non-notable people write about themselves out at WP:AFC. --Rschen7754 02:37, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Delete all -WP:NENAN. Dough4872 13:45, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Delete all per past consensus to use categories instead of navboxen. Also, do we really want 24 Highways in X County navbox templates on I-10? –Fredddie 22:17, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Delete all per past consensus, with the caveat that the creator of the templates be thanked for his or her time. - tucoxn\talk 02:21, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Delete all to quicken edit-preview as categories. Page "Interstate 10 in Texas" reformats at 52-58 of 60-second timeout, and I am creating new fast Template:JctUS to reduce time to 20 seconds, but omitting the 14 county-road navboxes would shave another 3-4 seconds of Lua navboxes. -Wikid77 10:13, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Delete all. Unnecessary navboxen. —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY] 03:15, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
