template violates MoS[edit]

Links are not supposed to be named in article text, per the MoS. "You should not add a descriptive title to an embedded HTML link within an article. Instead, when giving an embedded link as a source within an article, simply enclose the URL in square brackets". 86.44.20.177 (talk) 11:04, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Template:LseTemplate:London Stock Exchange – More descriptive and follow the naming convention of Category:Ticker symbol templates. Svgalbertian (talk) 22:10, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Survey[edit]

Feel free to state your position on the renaming proposal by beginning a new line in this section with *'''Support''' or *'''Oppose''', then sign your comment with ~~~~. Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's policy on article titles.
  • Unsure. I don't see what this move achieves. The template name is invisible to readers and quite adequate. Why fix what ain't bust? Andrewa (talk) 04:21, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Support While I agree that this is not nearly so pressing an issue as is presented by an article title being at an improper, confusing or ambiguous name, I do think there is benefit in naming templates in an intuitive manner. It may be invisible to readers, but someone who is trying to find what places template text by looking at the code will have a much easier time if the name is transparent (this is rendered even more opaque by being an acronym but in lowercase). Likewise, a person searching in Category:Ticker symbol templates is going to have a much easier time zeroing in were this at the proposed name.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 10:00, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. Templates should have human-readable and descriptive names instead of cryptic abbreviations that people need to memorize. For those who prefer to use the abbreviation, a redirect will do the trick. Jafeluv (talk) 20:11, 13 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Support, per above. Everybody using such a template needs to learn what it is at some point along the way, and this is facilitated by clarity in naming. ENeville (talk) 19:48, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

Any additional comments:

Template does not seem to work (directly) for mobile users[edit]

Trying to fix this problem I created the template {{lseB}} . SoSivr (talk) 19:10, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

  • I have updated the template to provide a slightly better link for mobile users. Unfortunately we cannot provide one link for mobile users and another for desktop users. --Svgalbertian (talk) 22:57, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
