  • That is an essay. Clean up should be done systematically. Merging articles without any discussion, AFD and even without edit summary is not a way to do it. You are talking about a recent ANI thread. Actually we took her to ANI 2 months before, see this. --TitoDutta 23:28, 2 September 2013 (UTC) 23:52, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
  • keep for now, but remove the redlinks. Frietjes (talk) 18:12, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
  • I've unlinked the redlinks and redirects back to itself, and now it looks even more pitiful. Jackmcbarn (talk) 21:43, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
  • It was suggested to remove (and not unlink) the redlinks. Follow this template structure {{Subrata Sen Films}} --TitoDutta 22:16, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

single use templates, should be merged with the article, and deleted. if you want to transclude it in both the main team article and in the season article, then put <onlyinclude>...</onlyinclude> tags around it in the season article (see Missouri Mavericks).

Template:Government type (edit · talk · history · links · logs · delete)

What is the purpose of this while we have from the same editor Template:Basic forms of government? Dubious about its content also - there are major types of government for which we have no articles? there are only two main 'categories', monarchies and republics? Dougweller (talk) 15:24, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Delete Ridiculous template content seemingly made to highlight dubious articles created by the template creator. Template concept duplicates others. Unneeded. -- Green Cardamom (talk) 16:17, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Delete - not sure how I didn't notice this before, but this encompasses only the types of government in the video game Europa Universalis III. Entirely unnecessary. Ansh666 20:17, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
Correct. Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Turgeis is relevant. I've done a lot of copyvio clearing up and there's still work to be done on some changes made to incorporate these types of government in articles (changing the standard terms used or piping them). Dougweller (talk) 04:54, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Is there already a government type template similar to this? It looks like this is a game-specific template; if that is the case I would support keeping it and re-labeling the template to indicate it's game-specific. CaseyPenk (talk) 16:24, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
    • There is already (Template:Basic forms of government). Problem is, this isn't Wikia (or paradoxian.org, where the official wikis for these games are kept), so there's really no point in keeping the template. Ansh666 16:57, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

Template:User North Korea (edit · talk · history · links · logs · delete)

Delete or reformat This template currently categorizes into "Wikipedians in North Korea", but the text says "Wikipedians from North Korea" which is not even close to the same meaning. As the Internet (nevermind Wikipedia) is not available in North Korea, if you were in North Korea, you would not be able to access Wikipedia, making this an impossible categorization. Further, several Wikipedians who use this template seem to have millions of UBXs for their origins/locations at the same time, so this fails WP:NOTSOCIALNETWORK. -- 76.65.128.222 (talk) 02:06, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

  • speedy close as wrong venue, userboxes are discussed at WP:MFD (see "what not to propose here in the TFD instructions"). Frietjes (talk) 18:59, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
    • Then can you transfer this to MFD? (I am the nominator, my IP has rolled over) Making an MfD nomination is rather complex. -- 70.24.244.158 (talk) 07:34, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
