Graphic - cap on stick[edit]

The graphic for this sidebar - "A phrygian cap on a pole" - is really tacky and unnecessary.

Does anyone object to removing it, and simply leaving the sidebar as text? — Preceding unsigned comment added by El T (talkcontribs) 17:20, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 16 June 2018[edit]

Can Michael J. Sandel's middle initial be added to mirror the article title? Thanks, 142.160.89.97 (talk) 23:37, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

 Not done: because all the other's names do not include middle initials, so to keep it consistent, I'll leave it like this. L293D ( • ) 00:00, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
@L293D: It is currently inconsistent as the link to the article about Sandel is the only one that does not use the subject's common name and the article title. This is out of line with {{Communitarianism sidebar}} (in which Sandel is also included) and most other political ideology sidebars. It is also in violation of WP:BRINT. What rationale is there for this template's uniqueness amongst other templates of the same class and for disregarding WP:REDIRECT? 142.160.89.97 (talk) 00:51, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
I declined because adding middle initials was out of line with the rest of the template. However, your arguments are right and I will make the edit. Thanks. L293D ( • ) 00:53, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
And thanks for the ping, otherwise I would never have seen this. L293D ( • ) 00:54, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
