Redundant template[edit]

IMO this template should be merged with Template:Infobox stadium. Of the major cricket grounds in Australia:

The infoboxes serve the same purpose but have a completely different look and feel. -- Chuq (talk) 05:05, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

There seems to be a lot of cricket-specific information in this one which is of interest to cricket fans and wouldn't be in Template:Infobox stadium. Stephen Turner (Talk) 10:16, 14 February 2008 (UTC)
So what would be the easiest way of resolving the above conflict?
  • Redesign T:ICG so it has the same look and feel as T:IS?
  • Add the cricket specific fields to T:IS?
  • Drop the cricket specific info completely?
Any other options?-- Chuq (talk) 10:36, 14 February 2008 (UTC)
i'm for adding the cricket specific fields to T:IS? --sss333 (talk) 04:17, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Proposal to remove lasttestdate, lastodidate etc. fields.[edit]

Discuss here. Thanks, Moondyne (talk) 03:12, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Template can be used as module[edit]

This template should be used as embed of Template:Infobox venue because lot of stadium in Australia and New Zealand used for other major sports as well as cricket. Price Zero (talk) 03:38, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

Price Zero, this now works. Frietjes (talk) 15:11, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Flag variants[edit]

Please add flag variant syntax to prevent anachronisms. – Illegitimate Barrister (talkcontribs), 12:25, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

Illegitimate Barrister, I added "var" suffixed variables for every {{cr}} and {{crw}} call. it would be much less cumbersome if we just migrated the flag generation to the articles. Frietjes (talk) 14:55, 27 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the fix. – Illegitimate Barrister (talkcontribs), 15:46, 27 December 2017 (UTC)
Frietjes, could you explain how this works? I have just looked at the Old Wanderers, which uses the recent SA flag for Tests beginning in 1896 and 1939. I cannot work out how to insert the relevant SA flags. (talk) 20:35, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
