It loads a documentation page which was used twice in 2011, and another 2 times on December 19, after this nomination. Possibly these last two edits by User:Gareth Jones were made on purpose. The edit summary "populate" might be an indication of that. And there is the fact that nobody complained yet. Debresser (talk) 01:39, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
  • delete The automatic completion didn't work, I manually edited the template (without investigating if this was a more common problem). In its current state it would seem most appropriate to delete. Gareth Jones (talk) 13:07, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

This template has only one mainspace transclusion, seven years after it was created. The only instance on Anemone hupehensis should be converted to a simple table, and the template deleted. eh bien mon prince (talk) 19:40, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

As the template's creator (thanks for the notify), I don't see why it's particularly needed if it's only on one page. OTOH, I don't see it doing any harm. --SB_Johnny | talk✌ 22:00, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

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

I need to recreate this template using Template:Ethnic group sidebar (copying last edit) because edit on January 5 completely changed view of the template. This edit improved the template but after this editing and moving page on January 6 (template:history of the Mongols→template:Mongols) new edits don't appear on related pages, for example: Kara-Khitan Khanate. Sczc (talk) 08:05, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Procedural close/Keep (1) this is a redirect, redirects are processed at WP:RFD (2) caching issues are fixed with null-edits (3) if you want to rename the "history of" template back to "mongols" use WP:RM. (4) If you want to establish a new "Mongols" template, just WP:EDIT the template. -- 70.50.148.122 (talk) 07:57, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
  • A few questions and comments. There are several things about the nomination which I don't understand, and I would be grateful for clarification. What do you mean by "new edits don't appear on related pages, for example: Kara-Khitan Khanate"? The template on that page looks fine to me. What is the problem? Perhaps, as 70.50.148.122 suggests, there was a caching issue. If so, it may well have been due to your browser caching the page, in which case it would not be solved by any changes on the Wikimedia servers, and you would be better off reading Wikipedia:Bypass your cache. If, on the other hand, it was due to the Wikimedia server cache, then there are easy ways of clearing the cache, of which 70.50.148.122's suggestion of a null-edit is as good as any: if you are interested in knowing more about the issue then look at Wikipedia:Purge. In any case, caching issues are normally short-term issues, which go awy of their own accord quite soon. Why do you need to "recreate" the template? If you think that your move has caused problems, then isn't just moving it back the obvious thing to do? Are you proposing "recreating" the template under its old title and keeping the original template under the new title that you have given it, or do you mean to have the old one deleted? Keeping both would be pointless duplication, and would be likely to create problems in the future with editors not being aware of the existence of both copies, with some changes to one copy and other changes to the other copy resulting in inconsistent versions of the template appearing in different articles. Keeping your "recreation" of the original template and deleting the existing one, on the other hand, would be completely unacceptable as it would lose the editing history, which must be kept for attribution purposes. Why was there a need for a move at all: i.e. what was wrong with just leaving the template at its original title? If, as seems likely, your concerns are due to caching problems, then it is probably a transient problem that has gone away by now, and if not then it is easy to deal with. The two best options are probably to leave things as they are or else to put the template back where it came from and then leave it. JamesBWatson (talk) 10:12, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
