Election results[edit]

Recent deletion by User:BrownHairedGirl reverted. The idea of taking the election results out of the body of the article and placing them at the end of the article was a suggestion made by User:BrownHairedGirl, another editor's example of Neville Chamberlain was used. While I do not accept the premise that this detail overwhelms the article, I do not believe that many would accept that the tables overwhelm the article if they are at the bottom.

I think it's time for an RFC on this splat-paste of data tables into biographical articles, when they are already in the constituency articles. This duplication of data serves little purpose. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 08:16, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
You have previously disagreed with other editors, including myself, about using tables in other articles, such as at Talk:Sir Ellis Ellis-Griffith, 1st Baronet. In that article you moved the tables to the end of the article. While I prefer to see the tables represented chronologically, I accepted your edit as a compromise. My edit to the Craig article followed that compromise. It is possible that you may have forgotten about that compromise when you deleted the tables to this article. I notice that on the same theme you have recently deleted the tables from other articles; Percy Alden, Stanley Buckmaster, 1st Viscount Buckmaster and Geoffrey Howard (Liberal politician) rather than moving them to the bottom as you had done in Sir Ellis Ellis-Griffith, 1st Baronet. I will leave it to you to decide if you wish to continue to adhere to your compromise solution. If you do, I would be grateful if you would restore the tables to the above articles, placing them together at the end if you prefer. Graemp (talk) 02:39, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Graemp, as discussed at length before, per the MOS the tables do not belong in the text, because they disrupt the flow of the narrative. I will continue to remove them from any such situation.
I am unpersuaded that it is appropriate to have a section devoted to such tables, and will not create any such section. However, if you want to create such a section, you may of course do so. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 11:32, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
