Closing instructions

On this page, the deletion or merging of templates, except as noted below, is discussed. To propose the renaming of a template or templates, use Wikipedia:Requested moves.

How to use this page[edit]

What not to propose for discussion here[edit]

The majority of deletion and merger proposals concerning pages in the template namespace should be listed on this page. However, there are a few exceptions:

  • Stub templates
    Stub templates and categories should be listed at Categories for discussion, as these templates are merely containers for their categories, unless the stub template does not come with a category and is being nominated by itself.
  • Userboxes
    Userboxes should be listed at Miscellany for deletion, regardless of the namespace in which they reside.
  • Speedy deletion candidates
    If the template clearly satisfies a "general" or "template" criterion for speedy deletion, tag it with a speedy deletion template. For example, if you wrote the template and request its deletion, tag it with {{Db-author}}. If it is an unused, hardcoded instance or duplication of another template, tag it with {{Db-t3|~~~~~|name of other template}}.
  • Policy or guideline templates
    Templates that are associated with particular Wikipedia policies or guidelines, such as the speedy deletion templates, cannot be listed at Tfd separately. They should be discussed on the talk page of the relevant guideline.
  • Template redirects
    List at Redirects for discussion.

Reasons to delete a template[edit]

  1. The template violates some part of the template namespace guidelines, and can't be altered to be in compliance
  2. The template is redundant to a better-designed template
  3. The template is not used, either directly or by template substitution (the latter cannot be concluded from the absence of backlinks), and has no likelihood of being used
  4. The template violates a policy such as Neutral point of view or Civility and it can't be fixed through normal editing

Templates should not be nominated if the issue can be fixed by normal editing. Instead, you should edit the template to fix its problems. If the template is complex and you don't know how to fix it, WikiProject Templates may be able to help.

Templates for which none of these apply may be deleted by consensus here. If a template is being misused, consider clarifying its documentation to indicate the correct use, or informing those that misuse it, rather than nominating it for deletion. Initiate a discussion on the template talk page if the correct use itself is under debate.

Listing a template[edit]

To list a template for deletion or merging, follow this three-step process. Note that the "Template:" prefix should not be included anywhere when carrying out these steps (unless otherwise specified).

I Tag the template.
Add one of the following codes to the top of the template page:
  • If the template nominated is inline, do not add a newline between the Tfd notice and the code of the template.
  • If the template to be nominated for deletion is protected, make a request for the Tfd tag to be added, by posting on the template's talk page and using the {{editprotected}} template to catch the attention of administrators.
  • For templates designed to be substituted, add <noinclude>...</noinclude> around the Tfd notice to prevent it from being substituted alongside the template.
  • Do not mark the edit as minor.
  • Use an edit summary like
    Nominated for deletion; see [[Wikipedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]]
    or
    Nominated for merging; see [[Wikipedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]].
  • Before saving your edit, preview your edit to ensure the Tfd message is displayed properly.

Multiple templates: If you are nominating multiple related templates, choose a meaningful title for the discussion (like "American films by decade templates"). Tag every template with {{subst:tfd|heading=discussion title}} or {{subst:tfm|name of other template|heading=discussion title}} instead of the versions given above, replacing discussion title with the title you chose (but still not changing the PAGENAME code). Note that TTObot is available to tag templates en masse if you do not wish to do it manually.

Related categories: If including template-populated tracking categories in the Tfd nomination, add {{Catfd|template name}} to the top of any categories that would be deleted as a result of the Tfd, this time replacing template name with the name of the template being nominated. (If you instead chose a meaningful title for a multiple nomination, use {{Catfd|header=title of nomination}} instead.)

II List the template at Tfd.
Follow this link to edit today's Tfd log.

Add this text at the top, just below the -->:

  • For deletion:
    {{subst:tfd2|template name|text=Why you think the template should be deleted. ~~~~}}
  • For merging:
    {{subst:tfm2|template name|other template's name|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

If the template has had previous Tfds, you can add {{Oldtfdlist|previous Tfd without brackets|result of previous Tfd}} directly after the Tfd2/Catfd2 template.

Use an edit summary such as
Adding [[Template:template name]].

Multiple templates: If this is a deletion proposal involving multiple templates, use the following:

{{subst:tfd2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be deleted. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ). Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

If this is a merger proposal involving more than two templates, use the following:

{{subst:tfm2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|with=main template (optional)|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ), plus one more in |with=. |with= does not need to be used, but should be the template that you want the other templates to be merged into. Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

Related categories: If this is a deletion proposal involving a template and a category populated solely by templates, add this code after the Tfd2 template but before the text of your rationale:

{{subst:catfd2|category name}}
III Notify users.
Please notify the creator of the template nominated (as well as the creator of the target template, if proposing a merger). It is helpful to also notify the main contributors of the template that you are nominating. To find them, look in the page history or talk page of the template. Then, add one of the following:

to the talk pages of the template creator (and the creator of the other template for a merger) and the talk pages of the main contributors. It is also helpful to make any interested WikiProjects aware of the discussion. To do that, make sure the template's talk page is tagged with the banners of any relevant WikiProjects; please consider notifying any of them that do not use Article alerts.

Multiple templates: There is no template for notifying an editor about a multiple-template nomination: please write a personal message in these cases.

Consider adding any templates you nominate for Tfd to your watchlist. This will help ensure that the Tfd tag is not removed.

Twinkle[edit]

Twinkle is a convenient tool that can perform many of the functions of notification automatically. However, at present, it does not notify the creator of the other template in the case of a merger, so this step has to be performed manually. Twinkle also does not notify WikiProjects, although many of them have automatic alerts. It is helpful to notify any interested WikiProjects that don't receive alerts, but this has to be done manually.

Discussion[edit]

Anyone can join the discussion, but please understand the deletion policy and explain your reasoning.

People will sometimes also recommend subst or subst and delete and similar. This means the template text should be "merged" into the articles that use it. Depending on the content, the template page may then be deleted; if preserving the edit history for attribution is desirable, it may be history-merged with the target article or moved to mainspace and redirected.

Templates are rarely orphaned—that is, removed from pages that transclude them—before the discussion is closed. A list of open discussions eligible for closure can be found at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Old unclosed discussions.

@TenPoundHammer: How is this different from Template:NS Roads and Highways or Template:Roads in London, etc. Jakarta has a population larger than London, and a worse congestion problem (c.f Traffic congestion#Indonesia). I dont understand why redlinks are relevant here. Each road is notable. These roads are the main feeders through the city. People sit on these roads for hours every day, twiddling their thumbs. The same article on bahasa Indonesia has many more articles written, and the list of roads referenced has been static since being defined back in 2011 See history.

  • Keep The content does exist to develop many more currently red linked articles. In this kind of case there is no question about the significance, it is simply the labor.

Template:Mainstream Rock Radio Stations in Rhode Island[edit]

Unused and WP:NENAN Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 05:53, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep It's not unused, there is a station which broadcasts Mainstream Rock in Rhode Island, WHJY. Therefore, it IS used. Besides, nothing in WP:TCSD warrants its deletion.Stereorock (talk) 21:21, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
  • @Stereorock: Because what point is there navigation-wise if there's only one link? It doesn't take you to or from anywhere. Precedent is that we delete templates if they don't sufficiently navigate. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 23:26, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
@TenPoundHammer:Actually, it DOES. When you click on each of the available formats in Rhode Island, they either go TO one of these templates of stations (which is useful) or to the musical genre itself when there are no stations (not useful). If I ask myself "is there a Mainstream Rock station in Rhode Island?", I can click on the any of the (Radio Format) in Rhode Island templates, & find Mainstream Rock down at the bottom. Another factor: stations change formats; who's to say that there may not be 2 Mainstream Rock stations in Rhode Island in the future? Rhode Island, due to its small size, only has a limited number of available frequencies (unlike, say, California, where there very well may be 30 Mainstream Rockers/A.O.R.s in the whole state), but currently, WHJY is a Mainstream Rocker/A.O.R. station & it can be gotten to by using this template. The template is valid. If there were no stations in a given format, you may have a point, but seeing how there is, and we cannot predict if other stations will or won't flip formats (something stations quite often do), it makes sense to keep this template.Stereorock (talk) 01:10, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

AddendumThere is nothing in WP:TCSD which warrants the deletion of this template.Stereorock (talk) 21:20, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

  • @Stereorock: There is no navigational purpose in a template with only one link. It links to and from nothing. If more stations arise, the template can be remade then. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 00:52, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
@TenPoundHammer:Sure there's a navigational purpose: in each of the (Radio Format) in New Jersey page that has a template, there is a link to all available templates, including Jazz stations in New Jersey. There IS a Jazz station in New Jersey, WBGO (& if you count WBGO's HD2 stream as separate, that makes 2 stations). There may be more stations playing Jazz in New Jersey that nobody has included yet. But, the navigational purpose is thus: clicking on Jazz Stations in N.J. takes you to that template; there IS a Jazz station in New Jersey: WBGO. Navigation, using the template, has worked. Also, stations do flip formats, so who's to say there won't be another station flipping to Jazz in the future? Now, getting rid of this template would reduce clicking on Jazz from any other N.J. radio template to redirecting to the generic Jazz music article, which isn't what clicking on the template is supposed to do. If anything, it would be better to have no link than a link to an article that isn't what the link is supposed to connect to.Stereorock (talk) 01:21, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Thumb firmly in the middle. Actually, with the format footer at the bottom, there are sixteen links in the template, but point taken. Seems to me a logical solution would be to combine the Jazz and Smooth Jazz templates, which would end up with three stations total. Mlaffs (talk) 21:16, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Template:People associated with The Beatles[edit]

No clear criteria for inclusion. The beatles were super popular, and about 75% of the recording world has crossed paths with them. For instance, what do Peter and Gordon have to do with the Beatles? Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 01:12, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Hey, Peter and Gordon had plenty to do with the Beatles(!) ... I agree, though, and I'd say it's bordering on trivia. (In the same way, we have articles on Beatles family members that really aren't worthy of an article: e.g. the only notable thing about Alfred Lennon, Jim and Mary McCartney and George Toogood Smith is that they had a familial relationship with an extremely famous musician.) As someone who works a lot on Wikipedia's Beatles articles, I don't think it would be any great loss to see the template gone. I was looking for other, similar examples, and there are only three: Template:People associated with The Beach Boys, Template:People associated with Public Interest Research Group and Template:People associated with Green Corps – so perhaps they all belong here at TfD. JG66 (talk) 05:15, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Strong Oppose, The Beatles hold such an important place in world history, in the history of the era, and of music in general, that this template should stay. The associated and listed names are a large part of the history, and losing it would necessitate greatly expanding other Beatle templates. The template could be trimmed a bit (Ed Sullivan, Donovan, etc. and other semi-tangential links), but kept on board. Randy Kryn (talk) 00:07, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
    @Randy Kryn: So it's "important" that [insert act here] rubbed shoulders with the beatles once? There's no clear criteria for what should be included. Obviously, something like George Martin or Wings would be included, but what do Peter and Gordon have to do with the Beatles? Or many of the other acts here? This clearly fails WP:PERFNAV. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 04:52, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
    Peter Asher, one half of Peter and Gordon, is the brother of Jane Asher, who was Paul McCartney's girlfriend before Linda Eastman came on the scene. Less tangentially, Lennon and McCartney wrote several songs for Peter and Gordon between 1964 and 1966, such as "A World Without Love"; "Nobody I Know"; "I Don't Want to See You Again"; and "Woman". --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 08:03, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
    One thing this discussion shows so far is that, even with the precise content being a peripheral subject, no one here's in agreement over who belongs in the template and who doesn't! (e.g. Donovan's way more "associated" than some of the names that appear; Wings aren't included.) Which goes some way to support the idea that the criteria for inclusion's unclear, or at least that it's highly subjective. In the past, the question of associated acts in the infobox at the Beatles has led to some differences of opinion. There are some guidelines on this at Template:Infobox musical artist, so perhaps something similar is needed in Template:People associated with The Beatles, if it is to be kept. Another thing: Randy Kryn, I fail to see how losing this template would mean "greatly expanding other Beatle templates" – why, and which ones? JG66 (talk) 07:37, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
    "Rubbed shoulders with the Beatles once" is an incorrect definition of this template, which of course should be trimmed and organized and have a better and higher inclusion bar. Maybe not 'greatly expanding' other templates, but the main Beatles template doesn't include Brian Epstein or George Martin, so would have to include a section of 'Associated people', and then again it runs into who should or should not be included. Keeping this one and working it into a better form would keep the Wikipedia-map quality of the template and Beatles history while providing information of interest to serious Beatle fans or researchers.

Template:115th United States Senate Roll Call[edit]

unused Frietjes (talk) 16:40, 9 June 2017 (UTC)

It is a template off of which things can be customized. Template:115th United States Senate Roll Call helped in building Template:Trump confirmations and Template:Trump confirmations2. You can see it being used in Neil Gorsuch Supreme Court nomination#Confirmation_vote. Although the template isn't invoked in the traditional sense, it is still used on Wikipedia. It saves editors the painstaking process in building their own version of the table when the time comes to display a United States Senate vote on articles. Additionally, it keeps those tables somewhat uniform in style. As 115th United States Congress ends on January 3, 2019, there is still ample time for this template to serve its purpose. I hope that it will be kept, but understand otherwise. (Please ping when you respond)Classicwiki (talk) 16:53, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
Classicwiki, I would suggest either (a) moving it to project space if it's meant to be cut-and-paste, (b) turning it into a proper template where you can supply votes for each of the names and substitute it to get the resulting table. Frietjes (talk) 22:14, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
Still feel very new to Wikipedia. What project space would you recommend? I can't picture what your saying in the second option. When you invoke a template, doesn't it come as is (barring any changes to size/state)? How would I go about doing your second option? Is there another template where I can see this in action?

Keep, though it can be marked as "historical" or similar. It's of historical interest, it was used on many of the more than 3,000 NRHP disambiguation pages (most categorized into Category:Disambig-Class National Register of Historic Places articles). The development and use of the template helped ease controversy about the disambiguation pages which ran for years. (If this TFD drifts towards "Delete", however, I request that the template be moved to my userspace instead of outright deletion.) I haven't looked yet, but I believe it was mentioned/linked from a number of disambiguation discussions and probably admin noticeboard discussions. Deletion undermines understandability of those discussions. --doncram 05:59, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Template:US Presidential Administrations[edit]

Propose merging Template:US Presidential Administrations with Template:US Presidents.
Should we merge the navboxes on U.S. presidents and presidencies according to Draft:US Presidents navbox?

A merge of those largely-overlapping templates has been discussed several times, but no consensus was found on how the merge product should look. When closing the previous merge discussion, it was suggested to hold a debate on the proposed design of the merged template, and then re-nominate when a "final product" is agreed. The new draft design has now been refined and endorsed by RfC, so it's time to re-nominate. — JFG talk 07:30, 13 June 2017 (UTC) — JFG talk 07:30, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Weak support since even though I concocted the adopted proposal, I'd much prefer Proposal D.--Nevéselbert 11:38, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
Design choices have been settled in the RfC; this discussion must focus on deciding whether the merge improves the encyclopedia for the benefit of readers. — JFG talk 23:19, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Conditional Support Although my only reservation is with the inclusion of the U.S. Coat of Arms in addition to the Seal of the President. I think just the seal is necessary.--Jacob51515 (talk) 01:04, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
Following two requests, I have now removed the Coat of Arms from the draft. — JFG talk 23:06, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Comments I agree that the CoA needs to be removed from the proposed design. I disagree that these two existing templates are "largely-overlapping", as one navigates between biographical articles about the men who served as POTUS, and the other navigates between U.S. presidential administrations. Also, in addition to there being "no consensus" in previous discussions concerning "how the merge product should look", there was no consensus as to whether or not the merge should happen at all. I myself am not totally convinced that it should. Drdpw (talk) 02:55, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
@Drdpw: The combined navbox allows easy navigation among the presidents and their administrations; this is more useful to readers; a glance at template histories shows that there was a single navbox for years, and they were split off relatively recently. I suspect that the split versions were the result of unsatisfactory design or layout; an issue now addressed. — JFG talk 23:16, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
No, that was not the case. The need/justification for a separate "administrations" navbox only came about 8/10 months ago when several new presidential administration articles were developed (only 17 existed at this time last year) and after several editors reached a consensus last December that there should be separate "personal-biographical" and "administration" navboxes (see here). Drdpw (talk) 02:22, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Usage note: On each president's page, both navboxes are listed, so the overlap is plainly demonstrated. In addition, the templates are often drowned in the middle of a dozen other navboxes for various topics related to the individual's prior career or his roles in international bodies. If the templates are merged, I would advocate displaying that navbox prominently above the collapsed list of "lesser" navboxes. So a typical president's bottom of the page would have his personal navbox and the navbox about all the presidents, then a collapsed list of the other relevant navboxes. — JFG talk 23:16, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
@JFG:, I took a look and did not find what you state above. I found no instances where a "US Presidents" navbox was on a president's admin-article page, and found only one instance where a "US Presidential Administrations" navbox was on a president's bio-article page (and I removed it). The two templates are placed on appropriate pages and fulfilling their functions well, as is the "United States presidential inaugurations" navbox, which I took a look at as well, as it's interconnected with the 2 under discussion here (and also with no overlap). BTW, I concur with you that there are too many navboxes crammed into the "Articles related to ..." shell on the presidents' bio-article pages; however, as the administrations navbox is not among them, that's really a separate issue to be discussed elsewhere. Drdpw (talk) 02:22, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
@Drdpw: OK,my bad, I must have drowned myself in all those navboxes… thanks for reviewing the articles. I still believe a merged template is more useful to readers than separate ones. — JFG talk 03:09, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Oppose: Nice design, but I see no compelling reason to merge two well-functioning, clear and concise navboxes, one that navigates between presidential administration articles and another that navigates between president bio articles. Further, merging these two templates runs counter to the guidance provided at WP:Navigation template, which encourages developing smaller templates on sub-topics when the broader topic is large. Navboxes should be simple and succinct, which the proposed merged navbox is not. Drdpw (talk) 01:36, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Template:Pronunciation inline[edit]

Other templates such as {{Audio}} and {{Pronunciation}} serve the same function with better implementation. It is also problematic in that the usage cannot be traced back from the audio file's description page on Commons (see Ahmedabad.ogg for example, a file linked from the template's documentation). This is because since it uses an image instead of a text, it has to link directly to the file URL instead of MediaWiki's standard way. Nardog (talk) 19:25, 15 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep. TFD is the wrong venue. As per this protection templates's instructions, this is used to temporarily tag templates and images that have temporarily been protected because they are linked from the main page. The template may appear to be unused most of the time, as such protection may not need to be applied every day. A discussion should instead be made on Talk:Main page or some other policy page regarding the fate of this protection template. If memory serves me, this was frequently used when it was created in 2006, when many of the intermediate protection levels like template protection did not exist yet, and there were vandals that specifically targeted such images and templates. I am no longer active in protecting areas regarding the main page, so I do not know if this is frequently used in 2017 as it was eleven years ago, so discussion should be made elsewhere than here on TFD.

Template:Irish courts pre-1922[edit]

Unused, arbitrary cutoff Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 05:27, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know about this discussion. The cut-off period of 1922 isn't arbitrary. That's the date of Irish independence, so the courts listed on the template are those used while Ireland was part of the United Kingdom, and before 1801, a subsidiary kingdom to Great Britain. There was a whole other set of courts established under the 1922 Free State Constitution, and then under the 1937 Constitution if Ireland. However, I accept that it's unused. I created it last year, and had obviously intended to add it to the relevant pages.

  • Premature—let's update the articles now to use other sourcing. It's better to at least acknowledge that the article is sourced to something than nothing. The template already tags the citations with {{verify credibility}} (and maybe that should be switched to {{sps}}, but I digress) so it's not like we aren't already acknowledging the deficiencies of the source.

  • Keep - Used in two articles. It doesn't make sense to duplicate the content in the two articles in which it is used and, as already pointed out by Frietjes this is part of a larger series of templates. --AussieLegend () 19:19, 24 June 2017 (UTC)
then read Wikipedia:Navigation_template#Navigation_templates_are_not_arbitrarily_decorative. the article at urban area is bloated with pictures and tables where links should suffice. note also that "city" does not always mean "urban area". city templates like these dont belong on that page because 'metropolitan area' does not always mean 'city' and does not always mean 'urban area'. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.151.25.115 (talk) 20:08, 24 June 2017 (UTC)
That a template contains images does not make it arbitrarily decorative. The primary purpose of the template is to list the largest cities in a concise, not necessarily to provide navigation per se. --AussieLegend () 20:32, 24 June 2017 (UTC)
the template isnt a infobox nor a map or a timeline but a simple truncation of the list. its adds no additional functionality to the articles its on and "templates should not be used to create lists of links to other articles when a category, list page, or "See also" section list can perform the same function" (WP:TG). the style of the template is like a navbox because it adds no unique information that isnt covered elsewhere. and it cant be part of a series since theres no universal definition of city.68.151.25.115 (talk) 06:23, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
As I said, the purpose of the template is to list the cities and to avoid duplicating the same content across multiple articles. That is an entirely appropriate use. --AussieLegend () 10:56, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
the template is inherently flawed and a misnomer. special wards of Tokyo is not a city but an administrative division. the argument that this fits a series of templates is equally flawed for the same reason. there isnt a set definition of a city; in this case and in australia's case, different institutions will define a city with different criteria and different definitions. we have another (notable) article Cities designated by government ordinance of Japan which excludes tokyo from the list. (here are a few others: Special cities of Japan, Core cities of Japan.) in List of metropolitan areas in Japan by population, defintions used are authored by the Statistics Bureau of Japan (SBJ) and the Center for Spatial Information Service of the University of Tokyo. this template is unmaintainable and should be left to appropriate articles/lists. another issue: is the city largest by population or area? different government definitions will define cities in different ways. for these reasons, regardless whether or not the template is used and rendering that argument moot, this template should be removed from both articles.68.151.25.115 (talk) 22:21, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Template:Sandwiches[edit]

Redundant to List of sandwiches and Category:Sandwiches, and there's no way this navbox can contain either a comprehensive list of all sandwiches or a balanced, representative sampling. Ibadibam (talk) 06:03, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

  • KEEP Perhaps a broader category of sandwiches rather than listing individual sandwiches to avoid the redundancy with List of Sandwiches, such as open sandwich, Taco, Hamburger, etc. --The_stuart (talk) 15:31, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
  • delete, better to use the category and the article. and, futhermore, the definition of a sandwich is controversial, with arguments over things like hot dogs. Frietjes (talk)
  • Delete. Better navigated by category and list. --Rob Sinden (talk) 14:23, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep – a valid template per WP:NOTDUP relative to Category:Sandwiches, which helps to aid in navigation for users interested in various types of sandwiches. The template consists of notable sandwiches, and is not intended to list all sandwiches in the world. If the template becomes too lengthy, it can be WP:SPLIT into sub-templates by sandwich type.

Template:Black Power movement[edit]

Enormous template, not helpful in navigation and unused Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 14:04, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep: The template size is largely due to the social movement spanning the time period from 1966 to 1975. A possible solution to the size issue is to create a Timeline of Black Power movement article and remove tangential sections and articles. The "not helpful in navigation" claim seems strange as the nav template unites articles on Wikipedia centered in this social movement. That is the point of nav templates. The claim that it is unused is true, but can be remedied by adding the template to listed articles. Deleting the template seems to be overkill for a template that only has issues to be addressed. Mitchumch (talk) 14:38, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep, a very good and needed template. It could be condensed a bit (too many sections or subsections, and court cases and possibly other links which had nothing to do with the topic) but this template is far from one which should be deleted. Why wasn't it added to some existing articles (many are tangential, Lyndon Johnson? this wasn't a military campaign) already? That's easily remedied. Overall, a nice template. Randy Kryn (talk) 14:54, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
  • move to a list article, as suggested above. this will also help with the overlap with Template:Black Power sidebar and Template:Campaignbox Black Power movement and Template:African-American Civil Rights Movement. Frietjes (talk) 16:34, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

Template:1939 shipwrecks[edit]

Unused, only links other templates Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 00:05, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

If you review the shipwreck templates for 1914 through 1918 and for 1939 through 1945, you will see that during the two world wars, shipwreck templates are by month unless the month of the shipwreck is unknown, in which case it goes into a template for the entire year. The template for the entire year also includes links to shipwreck templates for each month of the year. The only year that does not yet have any shipwrecks with unknown months is 1939, which is why the shipwreck template for 1939 is constructed the way it is. If you delete this template, you destroy the consistent pattern established for all other World War I and World War II yearly shipwreck templates without gaining anything worthwhile. You also make it impossible to navigate easily from one month to another within 1939, something possible in all other wartime years. I request that you retract this nomination for deletion and instead bring up the matter with WikiProject Shipwrecks on their discussion page. They could do a better job of discussing options there than this deletion discussion could. Better yet, improve Wikipedia by writing an article or two on 1939 shipwrecks with unknown dates and solve the "problem" – if it really is a problem – that way. Mdnavman (talk) 00:44, 20 June 2017 (UTC)mdnavman
Another issue to consider that would arise from deletion: If this template is deleted, it will make 1939 the only year between 1862 (currently; I continued to push the date back) and 2017 that does not have its own annual navigation template. This will be confusing for Wikipedia users, make quick navigation from 1938 to 1939 to 1940 much harder, and require resurrection of the 1939 template when ships with unknown dates have articles created. All without gaining anything for Wikipedia or its users.Mdnavman (talk) 14:35, 21 June 2017 (UTC)mdnavman
  • keep, part of a series, and there are a few links which could be added when the articles are written. Frietjes (talk) 14:58, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete. We should not be linking to templates from within templates in this way. The point is to keep the reader in mainspace, they wouldn't expect to and shouldn't end up in template space. If they were reading SS Castillo de Olite and clicked on the "1940" link at the bottom, they'd end up at Template:1940 shipwrecks which is a pretty much useless place to be. Maybe a {{Shipwrecks by month}} template should be created, similar to {{WWII shipwrecks}} which provides better navigation. --Rob Sinden (talk) 15:06, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Alternatively, the links in this template could be replaced with links to relevant articles, not the templates. That might work. --Rob Sinden (talk) 15:08, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
