Question: any discussion or consensus before moving this template?[edit]

Greetings Chicbyaccident – Wondering reasons why this template was moved? Under View history I did not see any communications from additional contributors. Did this conclusion happen at WP Catholicism or WP Christianity & I just missed it? Regards, JoeHebda • (talk) 16:01, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Greetings! I did follow the related talk pages for Template:Politics of the Holy See and Template:Politics of Vatican City. The consensus seems to be that Holy See is a larger entity, embracing the Vatican City rather than the other way around. This, of course, not denying the raison d'être of having Vatican City articles and templates and what not. However, the way I perceive the situation and talk pages, having a distinct Holy See perspective is more important than a Template:Vatican City topics. If anyone wants to create part double content Vatican City topics, of course that could be a possibility, but I have a hard time seeing Holy See topics being refused.

@Jujutsuan: and more: we could use your help here. The idea was to merge this template with Template:Holy See. Chicbyaccident (talk) 20:45, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

  • How about changing the visible name (the "name" of templates is often just for typing-ease) to "Vatican City and Holy See topics". That seems to include everybody's preference (I prefer the visible title "Vatican City", which I think was stable for awhile. I got involved in the Vatican templates after expanding the Index of Vatican City-related articles awhile back). Randy Kryn 20:56, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
I agree that {{Holy See topics}} and {{Holy See}} should be merged, and the former redirected to the latter. Besides my opinion, what would you like me to do, Chicbyaccident? Jujutsuan (Please notify with {{re}} talk | contribs) 21:02, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
Looking at {{Holy See}} it seems that this template should be put back to its original name before the undiscussed move, 'Vatican City topics' and left unmerged. Randy Kryn 21:48, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
I'm leaving it all up to you. But I do think some kind of merge would do. Chicbyaccident (talk) 21:50, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
This merge process still needs some attention. Chicbyaccident (talk) 16:09, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
Good it's back, and the name should stay at 'Vatican City topics' until an RM is held. Randy Kryn 00:32, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
