Is this necessary?[edit]

This is like me listing every single subdivision in Milwaukee....no one cares.

Is this necessary?[edit]

Why do we have a big, honking useless pagefiller and link clutterer like this?

This effectively makes the "What links here" page useless for each of the articles using this template, cluttering it with hundreds of links to places that only share this bad template.

It unnecessarily duplicates the function of Category:Municipalities in Salamanca.

The standard way to make a list which includes not only what is in the category (which includes only existing articles) but also redlinks to articles not yet created is to make a page at List of Municipalities in Salamance, which itself can then be put into the category, and indexing it with a space or asterisk will put it at the top of that category.

Unless somebody can come up with some good excuses for this, it ought to be a candidate for deletion. Gene Nygaard 06:48, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Yes, this template is *way* too long. At least a hide function could be added. --Fang Aili talk 20:59, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
