Color Scheme[edit]

Would it be possible to change the color scheme of the template from red to something less obtrusive such as a light blue or a grey color? Pavane7 (talk) 19:01, 28 June 2017 (UTC) In my opinion, grey or black color would be the best option.-- (talk) 19:38, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

Agreed. I have removed the color scheme and the "decorative" image. This is intended to be a neutral navigation aid, not a recruitment brochure. Grayfell (talk) 22:25, 20 July 2018 (UTC)


I don't know if there was any specific order to the entries here, but without one it's just a wall of text. I've alphabetized the organizations, and will probably do the people as well. There was a duplicate, which is a good reason to alphabetize entries, and also a good example of why lengthy templates tend to be self-defeating if the goal is to help people find more information. This is a very large number of entries with no indication which topics are vitally important and which are not, so restraint is a good thing. Grayfell (talk) 05:44, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Colour and symbols[edit]

The following discussion has been closed. Please do not modify it.

User:Greyfell is wipping himself up into a frenzy, because I added symbols that are actually relevent to the subject at hand; the Swastika and Black Sun are the most commonly used neo-Nazi symbols. The Celtic Cross, while used, is typically more of a neo-fascist symbol (used first by French neo-fascists). I can see the value of including it as well, but it is decidely third teir. Can anybody show which neo-Nazi groups uses the previous flag shown here? Its a completely invented flag as far as I can tell. Also red is the most common colour used on the flags of neo-Nazi groups (I have corrected the colour to the hex code used on aforementioned flag), not brown. The brown here appears to be to make the template look ugly. If Greyfell can't control his hysterical emotionalism on this topic, may I suggest that his efforts are probably more constructive editing other subject areas?

Color changes[edit]

I've removed the non-standard background colors from this template, which serve no encyclopedic purpose, and could be regarded by other editors as a provocation. I have also done the same with {{Communism}} template, for the same reasons. Templates are navigational tools, not celebrations of their subjects. -- The Anome (talk) 10:00, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

WP:NOTBROCHURE comes to mind here. Actually, for that reason, why does this template have any flag or symbol at all? Grayfell (talk) 00:22, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
The image was re-added by (talk · contribs · WHOIS) back in March. I think this was probably the same sock as above, so I have again removed the image. Grayfell (talk) 01:22, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
