Delete all agencies from template[edit]

I propose the removal of all agencies from this template. Otherwise, what is the limitation on which agency is included or excluded? MrBell (talk) 19:09, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Agreed. There is no way a list like this could ever be exhaustive with a worldwide article with agencies/departments that have varying amounts of wildfire suppression interaction. Maybe a list of coordination groups like NIFC in different countries might be a replacement but then you might run into the same problem. Beantwo (talk) 00:50, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Tactics & equipment[edit]

Hotshots should be removed before agencies. It is not a tactic or equipment. Beantwo (talk) 05:07, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Could a new section titled "personnel" be formed with Hotshot and Smokejumper? MrBell (talk) 19:34, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
Sounds good. Do it. It's just that those make up an incomplete list. I've been thinking about doing a "handcrew" page but I can't think of much that would extend it past a stub in length. Also, helitack and rappellers would fall under two categories in the infobox after this change. Beantwo (talk) 00:43, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

navbox conversion[edit]

I reverted the edit that converted this template to a bottom-of-page Navbox because it had taken place without any discussion. Such a large change in form of template presentation should at least allow for interested parties to weigh with opinions. Per WP:BRD, therefore, I reverted so that pros and cons can be hashed out. Thank you --Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 14:51, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

I assumed that this would be an improvement that would be welcome, I already moved it to the bottom of every page it is used on. I am more than happy to discuss it though. Does anyone have any thoughts on the matter? --Zackmann08 (talk) 17:32, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
Want to reopen this discussion. Does anyone have any thoughts on changing this to a bottom-of-page Navbox as well as doing a general clean up/revamp of the template? --Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 18:51, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
@Eggishorn: did you have any particular objection to this when it was done, or did you just not like the fact that it was done without a discussion. To be clear, I'm not saying the latter isn't a valid reason... But seeing as no one has commented on this in over a year and a half, doesn't seem like anyone else really cares. :-p So without objection, I'd like to move forward. --Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 01:17, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
Bumping this once again... Anyone have comments? --Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 04:50, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
