– Names of templates, especially those likely to be encountered by new editors (particularly tag left as complaints pertaining to content they've just added) need to have names that make some kind of sense to someone who is not already a Wikipedia policy expert. There's been a steady sea change over the last 5 years to moving templates from opaque jargon like {{fact}} to plain English like {{citation needed}}. Even if the redirects remain in use, they are auto-converted to the more descriptive names by various bots and AWB scripts. This is more cleanup in the same direction. Note in particular that the names of the variant templates make no sense at all at present; something being inline is not undue, and it is not undue for something to be sectioned. The weight given to something in that material is what is undue.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  13:47, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

  • Support, per nom, clearer data in a name, especially a short name such as this, assists both new and "seasoned" editors. Randy Kryn 18:33, 13 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Support - Per Nom. Always good ideas this guy. ◕‿↼ InsertCleverPhraseHere 02:23, 14 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Support per nom. An excellent proposal.  — Amakuru (talk) 13:34, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Support, more descriptive titles is always better for templates.--Zoupan 18:26, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Support. If something is undue, it should probably be deleted entirely. Undue weight means some weighting is undue. Weight is not implied by the word undue. --SmokeyJoe (talk) 13:13, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

I have put this request here, because it is more likely that this will be the page requiring the edit. This template is used on Rupert Murdoch, where there is an error in bolding - it doesn't recognise the closing ''' as closing the opening ''', instead causing a displayed ' and the rest of the line in italics. Why?--Launchballer 23:50, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Hey, it turns out there were unbalanced single quotes used to italicize "Forbes," and this caused the parser to bold the rest of the template. See [1] Cheers, Sn1per (talk) 00:20, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
