Template:French intervention in Mexico infobox (edit · talk · history · links · logs · delete)

One transclusion, to be merged into the main article. eh bien mon prince (talk) 22:15, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Oppose. There is precedent for this, cf. World War II. Having the infobox in a different namespace makes it less intimidating and difficult for new editors to edit the article text itself. The infobox is long (8.96 kB) and contains extensive references. Srnec (talk) 23:56, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
  • I'd delete as redundant, but Srnec raises a point worthy of wider consideration. RfC? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:27, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
  • The purpose of the template namespace is to display the same bits of wikicode on multiple pages, and the idea of using it to hide bloated blocks of code without having to go through a boring and potentially contentious cleanup and summarisation process is damaging to the quality of both articles and templates, as well as to the accuracy of the information they contain.--eh bien mon prince (talk) 16:29, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Do you have a problem with the quality of the infobox as is?
    My experience with Template:WW2InfoBox is what led me to this solution at the Mexican article. There is consensus that this is sometimes acceptable, regardless of the "purpose" of the template namespace. Srnec (talk) 20:18, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
  • merge with the article and delete. if we need to save the history for attribution, then move to a subpage, and redirect. Frietjes (talk) 22:26, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
  • In the case of the similar WWI infobox, the discussion resulted in a consensus to keep. Srnec (talk) 20:13, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Template:Obama cabinet infobox (edit · talk · history · links · logs · delete)

Hardcoded instance of {{Infobox U.S. Cabinet}}, two transclusions. eh bien mon prince (talk) 22:13, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

  • keep so long as there is more than one transclusion, however delete if it should only be in one article. Frietjes (talk) 22:21, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
  • As the person who created this template, I believe I created it to match infoboxes that exists for other presidential cabinets. (I don't remember that well since I created it over five years ago.) If we have deprecated infoboxes for other presidential cabinets we could probably delete this, but I do like the idea of keeping this in one place so we don't have to update each infobox on all of the Obama administration articles. Harej (talk) 03:47, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Question: Would labeled section transclusion be appropriate for infoboxes? —PC-XT+ 05:11, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
  • I don't know, but if that's the alternative I'd rather keep the template.--eh bien mon prince (talk) 16:18, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Template:Cucuteni-Trypillian infobox (edit · talk · history · links · logs · delete)

Hybrid of a sidebar and an infobox; Template:Infobox former country can be used as an infobox while the sidebar should be separate from the rest. eh bien mon prince (talk) 21:52, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

  • The Cucuteni-Trypillian culture is not a former country. It was an Archaeological culture. So the former country infobox would not apply. If it is decided to remove the Cucuteni-Trypillian infobox, that would be fine with me (speaking as the largest contributor to edits on the Cucuteni-Trypillian articles). But I would suggest taking prompts on how the page is designed and what elements should be incorporated in it from other archaeological culture articles. Indeed, this is why I originally created the Cucuteni-Trypillian infobox, because other archaeological culture articles from the Neolithic also included similar infoboxes in their pages. But now I see that, for some reason, most of the archaeological culture articles have removed their infoboxes, and so this would be fine to emulate their standard. A good article for reference would be Corded Ware culture. --Saukkomies talk 22:18, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Template:ProbSig (edit · talk · history · links · logs · delete)

Redundant clone of {{User}} that was created to solve a non-existent problem. — Scott talk 14:21, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

A substitution-friendly version of {{User}} seems to be wanted. It looks like someone has a stand-alone version in Template:User/sandbox. A subst-friendly version that doesn't change the live template as much may be User:PC-XT/sandbox/Template:User. ({{subst:User:PC-XT/sandbox/Template:User|PC-XT}} → PC-XT (talk · contribs)) —PC-XT+ 20:18, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
  • PC-XT, does {{subst:ProbSig|UserName}} not work just as well (I'm open to renaming or adding redirects) as such a template probably shouldn't be in userspace. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 15:56, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
Technical 13, I'm not sure I understand your question. My example is meant to be merged with {{User}}. (It could optionally use noinclude tags instead of parameter markup, as I said at Wikipedia:SIGCLEAN#Signature_cleanup.) If you mean that I used my sandbox instead of the one at the template, I do not intend to keep it in my userspace, nor for it to be used from there other than for testcases. I thought that was clear from the name. I did not use the one at the template because it is already holding a stand-alone variant, something similar to {{ProbSig}}. I do not think there is anything wrong with {{ProbSig}}. There are simply other ways of doing things that may work better, and I suggested something to consider. It is redundant to {{User}} and {{ProbSig}} as much as they are redundant to it, but it shares the code in one template, instead of forking. Only one choice should be kept. I see the idea was already mentioned at Wikipedia:SIGCLEAN#Signature_cleanup before I made the sandbox, and I don't consider it mine. If I missed the point, please ask again. —PC-XT+ 20:05, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Based on the results on Template:User/testcases, I maintain the the code used for {{ProbSig}} results in the lightest weight and effective code out of all of the options, as we wouldn't want to violate WP:SIGLEN after all while attempting to fix a signature. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 20:25, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for making the testcases page. It doesn't have a subst-friendly version of {{User}} listed, so I'll add the one from my sandbox for now. I would prefer a shorter code, myself, but {{User}} is not too much longer, looking at the example I gave above. (I don't know why it encloses the whole thing in a span tag with no attributes. Maybe that could even be removed.) —PC-XT+ 21:10, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
It also does not need a plainlinks class to wrap wikilinks. —PC-XT+ 21:18, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
  • It should be noted here, also, that {{user}} is a wrapper for {{user-multi}}, which now accounts for over 200,000 transclusions. Thus we shouldn't be creating any new user link templates that aren't based on it. WP:SIGLEN is also not a consideration here, because that applies to the length of a user's self-chosen signature code, not code used to replace it in problematic cases. — Scott talk 21:28, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Ummm say what? the purpose of WP:SIGCLEAN#Signature cleanup is to replace custom signatures with a signature that is as close to the default code as possible, and yes, WP:SIGLEN is a consideration here as it says nothing about applying to "self-choosen signature code" only... Bullet number one states: Signatures that take up more than two or three lines in the edit window clutter the page and make it harder to distinguish posts from signatures. and bullet four Signatures that occupy more space than necessary in the edit box displace meaningful comments, thus forcing editors to scroll when writing their replies. which is relevant and applicable no matter how the signature got there. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 22:03, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
  • As you quote, "signatures that take up...". But a replacement for a user's erroneous signature is not actually their signature, and anything much simpler is an adequate replacement. In other words, SIGLEN doesn't mandate that a replacement must be absolutely as short as possible - not that that wouldn't be a good thing. It would be better to improve the existing output of {{user}} than to have yet another template that's only different by being shorter "as we wouldn't want to violate SIGLEN". For example, as PC-XT points out, what's up with those span tags? I certainly don't know. You could definitely help by working with the authors of that template on getting that ironed out. — Scott talk 22:42, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
  • a signature is a signature whether it was put there by them or as a replacement for a user's erroneous signature. Those span tags are not part of {{ProbSig}}, they are part of {{User:PC-XT/sandbox/Template:User}}. Once those span tags are removed, you are left with {{ProbSig}}. So, you would seem to agree that {{ProbSig}} should be kept. Should I consider this agreement your way of requesting this TfD withdrawn? — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 22:54, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
  • I'm afraid not. I'm not sure how, but your reading of my comment is 180° from its intention. If anything, I'm emphasizing that your new template is unnecessary duplication of existing functionality, which your efforts would be better spent on working towards improving - not reimplementing. — Scott talk 23:48, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict)It's done with modules, now. There are two modules involved in the spans. I mentioned the plainlinks span, which is also used to apply other classes and styles, at Template talk:Toolbar#Use_in_signatures. The main span could be discussed at Template talk:User-multi. The main span may have been used in the past to contain an id, which probably was removed because multiple identical ids do not work well on the same page. They may have other functions, but they have little use blank or applying unneeded classes. —PC-XT+ 23:12, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
  • When you remove the span wrappers you end up with {{ProbSig}} which is nothing more than a subst-friendly version of {{User}} that results in code that is the closest to the default signature (plus a contribs link), do you not? So... Why not just keep {{ProbSig}} for this purpose? — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 22:03, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
See, for example, User:RL0919/Templates of Redundancy Templates. I do think a shorter signature is desirable, but so is standardization. I don't think the one in my sandbox really produces too much code. ({{subst:User:PC-XT/sandbox/Template:User|Technical 13}} → Technical 13 (talk · contribs)) is shorter than the wikicode resulting from your custom signature, so I don't really think it is a big problem. (For those who don't know, I am talking about the wikicode source visible when editing the page, not the actual signature.) —PC-XT+ 22:46, 29 March 2014 (UTC) 23:12, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
...which makes it redundant. You seem to be taking a defensive stance when I haven't attacked you or the template. Aren't we working for the good of the encyclopedia? Your template paved the way for improvement, but nothing stays the same forever on a wiki. —PC-XT+ 23:12, 29 March 2014 (UTC) 23:26, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment {{User}} is now substitution friendly. For the record, I'm going to put my sandboxed version up for speedy deletion, since it is no longer a useful example: the template has surpassed it. I'll update the testcase page, as well... —PC-XT+ 08:11, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete. Not necessary now that {{user}} is substable. Disclaimer: I am the one who did the recent work on {{user}} and Module:UserLinks to make substing work. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 10:38, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Unnecessary template is possibly for one's personal usage, not the multitude of Wikipedians. May also create bias as special template for this team makes other teams appear less notable, when they may not be. Nomination for deletion. Mr. Guye (talk) 02:24, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Comment I don't understand the deletion rationale. The template is for a league, not a team. I also don't understand how it could be for personal usage. — X96lee15 (talk) 02:45, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Comment I don't understand the rationale either. This TfD nomination (as it's presented) makes no sense. Jrcla2 (talk) 03:37, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Keep on the basis that User:Mr. Guye has absolutely no clue how to edit Wikipedia or what a reasonable rationale for deletion is. Please take a look at his talk page edit history that shows how many messages he's received (which he deleted) regarding his nominations, editing habits, and total inexperience. WP:COMPETENCE is required to edit Wikipedia, and I've failed to see enough of it to support any TfDs put forth by Mr, Guye. My keep is a procedural one. Jrcla2 (talk) 03:48, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Delete. (This was User:Mr. Guye's edit, who cannot !vote for his own nomination –Jrcla2 (talk) 03:45, 27 March 2014 (UTC)) That wasn't really the MAIN rationale. the main rationale was really the fact that it was unnecessary. Why not just use an {{infobox}}. This isn't worth creating an entire template for.

Subst and delete as a single-use template, but suspend until the general case can be resolved. Although Mr. Guye is almost almost always wrong, he has pointed out a problem with the template. If it, or many others in its class (members of Category:Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association football standings templates) are used more than once, the guidelines still suggest it shouldn't be done, but WP:IAR suggests that maintaining the same table in two places would allow it. (I acknowledge a procedural "Keep" makes sense, and if the result would otherwise be "no consensus", it should be considered a procedural Keep.) — Arthur Rubin (talk) 07:32, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
