Currently, this page displays all of the logos for each of the European communist parties. However, according to WP:FU policy, "[Fair use images] should never be used on templates (including stub templates and navigation boxes) or on user pages". I will give some time for the creators/maintainers of this template to cleanup the template themselves by removing all of images. If this is not done in a timely manner, I will make the change myself. Thanks. — Scm83x hook 'em 20:59, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

But the template is solely used on article pages, directly relating to the subject. Would that be in some sort of accordance with WP policy? --Soman 07:10, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
No, the policy is unbending. — Scm83x hook 'em 10:27, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
What happened to the Denamrk and Moldova links? There's just flags. - THE GREAT GAVINI {T-C} 08:13, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
I support removing these fair use logos from the template since the image description pages say that they are copyrighted, but the template does not. Please go to more relevant articles for fair use images.--Jusjih 16:50, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

More communist parties[edit]

There are two communist parties in Finland: For Peace and Socialism - Communist Workers Party is the second. Maybe there are more communist parties in other countries, too. -Samulili 08:11, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Template adjustments[edit]

Changes I made (I didnt bother with an edit summary since these wouldn't fit there anyways)

  • I used the more standardized {{Navigation}}. Removed the ugly red header.
  • I removed the flags, they were ugly, confusing and unhelpful.
  • I added a second entry under Turkey. Turkey had two communist parties one defunct one ongoing (according to their articles that is, I wouldn't know)

what to include?[edit]

Currently the template contains very minor and several historical communist parties, e.g. among the German and Italian ones (where I do know a little bit). So the list is not straightforward at all: - should trotskyist parties be included? - should historical parties be included? Probably not - how prominent/large should a party be to be included? - in particular, there are many small communist organizations (some of them in a sense former parties) that either do not see themselves as parties any more, or are not viewed by others as true parties, due to lacking size and political activity, e.g. participating in elections-- (talk) 13:08, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Trotskyist parties aren't included so I renamed it into "orthodox communist parties". -- (talk) 11:12, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
