Excessive use of template[edit]

This template has been included in many articles which have little to do with Al Hirt. Just because he recorded a song does not justify including this template in an article. I suggest it be removed from most of the articles that unjustifiably include it.

The same situation occurs for Category:Al Hirt

A question: If we include the template of every artist that every recorded a song, many song articles would include twenty or thirty templates--Foobarnix (talk) 02:16, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Agreed. This giant template doesn't need to be in the article of every song he covered, and the template itself should be pruned. Compare this to the much smaller Template:Louis_Armstrong. Gamaliel (talk) 01:04, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your support Gamaliel. I will look into doing some more pruning.--Foobarnix (talk) 02:13, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
