Do we really need all these Shows and Hides?[edit]

Ditto for Template:Politics of South Africa. I'm sorry Toussaint, but I find them more of a pain than something helpful in saving space - rst20xx (talk) 21:22, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Also as another point of consideration, they more than double the template's size in KB. Which I think is more of a problem for people on crappy computers than the template's physical size. So in fact I'm gonna revert these changes. - rst20xx (talk) 21:24, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
I reorganized the template following reorganizations of templates like {{Socialism sidebar}}, {{Anarchism sidebar}} and {{Communism sidebar}}. The reason for this is that smaller templates are preferable for two reasons
  1. Having a large template can lead to strange lay outs on the screens, especially if articles have multiple large templates, it can become very messy
  2. Large templates can be pretty strange on small articles, when half the page is white, because the template continues but the text does not
Making templates expandedable with the "show" button deals with these issues quite nicely.

Oppose Certainly save some space, but they are a virtual pain and make the embedded links unnecessary hard to find. I'd rather suggest a button on the top where the user can hide the template altogether if he wishes. As some policy templates have actually grown out of proportions (e.g. Politics of Finland), I'd also suggest to embed links of secondary importance, such as detailed links to the municipal bransh etc. --Camptown (talk) 11:18, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Names of politics[edit]

If to specify, all. And they can vary often enough. Can simply write list?--Andrey! 15:40, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
