Rename this template[edit]

Template:Major film studios in the United States and Canada as THAT seems to be the defining criteria for inclusion. A film studio is a film studio... and there are MANY large film studios not so geographically located that would be ommited from inclusion here simply for NOT being in the US or Canada, or by NOT being of some arbitrary size.

I don't mind, but they tend to get to unweldy to look through with out some sort of subcatagories. Spshu (talk) 20:30, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Conglomerates[edit]

Conglomerates are not a film studio so thusly irrelevant to this template. If some one wants to see who owns a Major film studio then they can click through to their article or to the Major studios article and find out as that is the point of the article not the nav templates. --Spshu (talk) 16:00, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Completely agree. This template is for the film studios, not film studios' parent companies. Powergate92Talk 02:12, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Protected[edit]

I've fully-protected the template for 3 months to stop the slow-motion edit war. Please discuss the changes to it here on the talk page, and try and find a consensus. If you can't find a consensus through talk-page discussion, I recommend taking this to the dispute resolution noticeboard. Regards — Mr. Stradivarius (have a chat) 11:16, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Hello. Lately, there was an unfortunate edit war going on here, and I am an uninvolved third-party, so it's best if we should work this out on the talk page. As indicated in the above discussion, two users seem to agree that conglomerates are not film studios, and as such, I partially think that this template should be used for film studios, not parent companies. I think it would be better if we should get users involved to discuss their changes and not edit war while this discussion takes place. I think we should discuss whether we should use conglomerates in this template or not. Any comments or objections? Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 00:24, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 20 January 2013[edit]

I believe that Kanbar Entertainment should be added to this template. --Jpcase (talk) 18:46, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Symbol question.svg Question: In which group - "Other independent" or "Producer-owned independent"? JohnCD (talk) 15:25, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
Honestly, I'm not sure. What is the difference? --Jpcase (talk) 17:59, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
I've no idea. Perhaps ask someone who has edited the template recently? or toss a coin? JohnCD (talk) 23:07, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
Alright, I've consulted with the editor who created the distinction and was told that Kanbar Entertainment should go in the "Other independent" group. --Jpcase (talk) 20:54, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. JohnCD (talk) 20:57, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! --Jpcase (talk) 21:17, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Alliance Films[edit]

Should the Alliance Films be changed to Entertainment One (eOne), seeing as how Alliance has been acquired by eOne as of January 9, 2013? --DarkNITE (talk) 17:51, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
