This template is simply too clogged to be of any use. I have been bold and reworked the template, with the main difference being the removal of the member nations section, since all the relevant info can be found at List of members of the International Ice Hockey Federation –[[::User:Schmloof|Schmloof]] ([[::User talk:Schmloof|talk]] · [[::Special:Contributions/Schmloof|contribs]]) 05:36, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

This Template is used by many articles. It is not appropriate without the discussion and mutual agreement to do a great change.--Tiyoringo (talk) 18:39, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but there is no harm in making such a large change, as per the bold, revert, discuss cycle. I outlined my reasons here on the talk page, and linked here in my edit summary in order to facilitate discussions. Now that we've completed bold and revert, would you kindly discuss your reasons for the revert? Again, I removed the member nations sections as they are simply lists, and can be summed up in the article I mentioned above. –[[::User:Schmloof|Schmloof]] ([[::User talk:Schmloof|talk]] · [[::Special:Contributions/Schmloof|contribs]]) 00:58, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Seeing as there is no reply, I will again try the WP:BRD cycle. If you truly are against it, please discuss it here. –[[::User:Schmloof|Schmloof]] ([[::User talk:Schmloof|talk]] • [[::Special:Contributions/Schmloof|contribs]]) 20:46, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

There is no agreement of other users and the edit of you who did a great removal by the arbitrary decision is not the accepted one. You must suggest Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Ice Hockey.--Tiyoringo (talk) 04:06, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Your edit is if man inspect two or more national team article, waste more times.--Tiyoringo (talk) 04:10, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

  • I concur with the removal, and have removed it again. There's already a link to the list of member associations article. That's enough for most IIHF related articles; it overwhelms everything else. A separate navbox including just the members may be appropriate for linking the individual member association articles, but a link to the list is probably sufficient.oknazevad (talk) 05:22, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
  • I agree with the change as well, general consensus at the hockey project has always been less links in a navbox equals better. I think this follows that. -DJSasso (talk) 10:31, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
  • I also agree with the removal, it was becoming to large and was incomplete (it was missing the inline teams). A seperate template for each group may work (eg Mens, Mens U20, Womens, etc). Salavat (talk) 14:18, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
The inclusion of all the men's and women's senior and junior teams is and always was excessive and unnecessary. I agree with Salavat that separate nav templates for each category would be more appropriate. I made a nav temp that links to member associations back in March, Template:IIHF member associations. It's already transcluded on each association's respective page. JohnnyPolo24 (talk) 14:52, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
