The problem[edit]

The basic thesis is that Wikipedia has too many boxes. Userboxes were bad enough, but now we have the infobox virus, and dozens of superfluous navigation boxes spouting up all over otherwise decent articles. We have a multitude of boxes on talk pages claiming ownership by some project that typically has contributed nothing to that article, except of course the box. We have boxes appearing at the top of an article to warn us of 1004 different things.

Enough is enough. No more boxes. The fightback starts here.
