On this page, the deletion or merging of templates and modules, 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 and module 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 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}}.
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. The use of Twinkle (explained below) is strongly recommended, as it automates and simplifies these steps. Note that the "Template:" prefix should not be included anywhere when carrying out these steps (unless otherwise specified).

Step Instructions
I: Tag the template. Add one of the following codes to the top of the template page:

Note:

  • 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 or Template editors.
  • 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).

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.)

TemplateStyles pages: The above templates will not work on TemplateStyles pages. Instead, add a CSS comment to the top of the page:

/* This template is being discussed in accordance with Wikipedia's deletion policy. Help reach a consensus at its entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2022_May_25#Template:template_name.css */
II: List the template at TfD. Follow this link to edit today's TfD log.

Add this text to the bottom of the page:

  • 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.

After nominating: Notify interested projects and editors[edit]

While it is sufficient to list a template for discussion at TfD (see above), nominators and others sometimes want to attract more attention from and participation by informed editors. All such efforts must comply with Wikipedia's guideline against biased canvassing.

To encourage participation by less experienced editors, please avoid Wikipedia-specific abbreviations in the messages you leave about the discussion, link to any relevant policies or guidelines, and link to the TfD discussion page itself. If you are recommending that a template be speedily deleted, please give the criterion that it meets.

Notifying related WikiProjects[edit]

WikiProjects are groups of editors that are interested in a particular subject or type of editing. If the article is within the scope of one or more WikiProjects, they may welcome a brief, neutral note on their project's talk page(s) about the TfD. You can use {{Tfdnotice}} for this.

Tagging the nominated template's talk page with a relevant Wikiproject's banner will result in the template being listed in that project's Article Alerts automatically, if they subscribe to the system. For instance, tagging a template with {{WikiProject Physics}} will list the discussion in Wikipedia:WikiProject Physics/Article alerts.

Notifying substantial contributors to the template[edit]

While not required, it is generally considered courteous to notify the good-faith creator and any main contributors of the template and its talkpage that you are nominating for discussion. To find the creator and main contributors, look in the page history or talk page.

At this point, you've done all you need to do as nominator. Sometime after seven days have passed, someone else will either close the discussion or, where needed, "relist" it for another seven days of discussion. (That "someone" may not be you, the nominator.)

Once you have submitted a template here, no further action is necessary on your part. If the nomination is successful it will be added to the Holding Cell until the change is implemented. There is no requirement for nominators to be part of the implementation process, but they are allowed to if they so wish.

Also, consider adding any templates you nominate to your watchlist. This will help ensure that your nomination tag is not mistakenly or deliberately removed.

Twinkle[edit]

Twinkle is a convenient tool that can perform many of the posting and notification functions automatically, with fewer errors and missed steps than manual editing. Twinkle 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.

Closing discussion[edit]

Administrators should read the closing instructions before closing a nomination. Note that WP:XFDCloser semi-automates this process and ensures all of the appropriate steps are taken.

Template:Fbbicon and related football flag+link templates[edit]

No transclusions. Functionality appears to be provided by other templates. – Jonesey95 (talk) 19:16, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Note: This discussion has been included in WikiProject Football's list of association football-related page discussions. GiantSnowman 18:58, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Delete per nom. GiantSnowman 19:00, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Comment: I created some of these templates, as discussed here. A lot of these are evidently not used, however I'm wondering how quickly some of these could be merged into the main templates (usually Template:Fbicon). I think all of these relate to sub-teams of the main national team - so Template:Fbbicon relates to the national 'B' (or second) team, Template:Fbamicon relates to the national amateur team, etc. Ideally, there would be one template covering all national football teams at all levels. As I recall when making these, I simply provided flagicon version of all the existing templates in Category:Association football flag templates. Clyde1998 (talk) 14:33, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • A merge would be fine with me. Is there someone available to plan and implement such a merge? If these are closed as "merge", they can go to the holding cell pending migration, but it is not desirable for them to live there forever. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:10, 19 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

There's no need to merge functionality from unused templates - the fact that they have become unused indicates that they are not useful. Delete all * Pppery * it has begun... 00:30, 25 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Satish Jain[edit]

Unused. No mainspace article. At the moment, the mainspace for the director is a draft, but not submitted for review. Only two links to articles on films that have been directed by this person. The films written have been written by this person, but again, no mainspace article for this person. Thus, navigation can't be provided. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 17:34, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:WikiProject Human–Computer Interaction/class[edit]

No transclusions. All relevant categories have been deleted. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:09, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Rhythmic Contemporary Radio Stations in Oklahoma[edit]

No transclusions. It appears that both of the stations linked here have changed formats. – Jonesey95 (talk) 13:58, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Delete Even if they hadn't, this is too small for a navbox. Sammi Brie (she/her • tc) 19:17, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:FC Spartak-2 Moscow squad[edit]

No transclusions. FC Spartak-2 Moscow has been dissolved, so there is no use for this current football squad template. – Jonesey95 (talk) 13:56, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Eluru district[edit]

No transclusions. Appears to be an unnecessary copy of {{West Godavari district}}. – Jonesey95 (talk) 13:55, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

West Godavari district and Eluru district are two separate districts in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh so each one needs a template. The districts are each composed of separate objects: cities, mandals, towns, etc. I tried to create the Eluru template and would have populated it, but I ran into a problem. Whenever I tried to edit the Eluru template, the changes also showed up on the West Godavari template and so I stopped. I was about to ask for help, so I am asking now. Thanks. Hmains (talk) 01:45, 25 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Surname navbox templates, part three[edit]

As with the two groups of similar templates deleted after recent discussion at CfD, these "Surnames associated with the given name xxx" templates show unsourced connections between an apparently unreliably-chosen set of surnames and only contribute clutter to the pages to which they have been added. The various surnames could usefully be listed, with sources, in the pages relating to the individual given names, and each surname page could usefully include a well-sourced link to the given name to which it is related, but these navboxes are not an asset to the encyclopedia.

Template:4Team2ElimBracketNoFinal[edit]

  • Merge - While both template provide the same purpose, I'd argue that {{4Team2ElimBracketNoFinal}} is more aesthetically pleasing, as well as is clearer that it is indeed a four-team, double-elimination bracket and has has labels for its upper and lower brackets. {{4TeamBracket-2Elim}} looks like a six-team, single-elimination bracket.

Template:Fake dubious[edit]

Redundant to {{Dubious}}. Replace the single transclusion with that template and then delete this one. – Jonesey95 (talk) 19:11, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Jonesey95 This is a fake version of the dubious template that doesn't sort the page into clean-up categories and the like, for use in documentation and discussions just like {{fake CN}}. The single use of it is a message on a talk page, so replacing it with a real template would not be appropriate. 192.76.8.94 (talk) 22:49, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The template has one transclusion and no documentation. If {{dubious}} assigns categories when the template is used outside of appropriate spaces, that should be easy to fix so that it can be used in talk space and template documentation without categorizing those pages. – Jonesey95 (talk) 01:12, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Infobox Pan American Games[edit]

  • Keep distinct events with distinct requirements. No need to delete. Sportsfan 1234 (talk) 21:59, 8 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Keep Used over at 48 articles for a specific event and doesn't fork the Olympic games infobox. Two different international games infoboxes. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 22:56, 8 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    • "Used over at 48 articles" [SIC] is not a reason to keep a redundant template. The template creator's edit summary when creating the template was "create template based off template:infobox olympic games " - in other words, a fork. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 09:38, 9 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
      • The 48 articles references it's specific use. 48 article about the Pan American Games exist. "Only 19 transclusions", as you stated from that original discussion. How could it be redundant now given the expansion of the number of Pan American Games articles? And if it's a fork of the Olympic games infobox, then why not merge both into the Infobox games template instead of deleting it? --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 17:26, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
        • "How could it be redundant now given the expansion of the number of Pan American Games articles?" Because 48 is still a very low number; because usage stats are not in any case a measure of redundancy or otherwise, and because many of those instances were swapping one infobox for another (see the example I gave, above), very similar, infobox. What do you think should be merged from this template into another (and why was that not simply added there in the first place)?

Template:Anthony Albanese sidebar[edit]

The following discussion is an archived debate of the proposed deletion of the template(s) or module(s) below. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page (such as the template's talk page or in a deletion review).

The result of the discussion was keep. (non-admin closure) intforce (talk) 12:13, 24 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

None of these articles are "about" Albanese, these are just links to positions he has held. Totally unnecessary. ITBF (talk) 16:17, 22 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Delete per nomination. No article exist yet, outside his own, as he has just been elected as Prime Minister and this was created too early. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 22:15, 22 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Keep. Ridiculous to consider deletion of the sidebar of a now-incumbent Prime Minister (and this discussion would never take place if this was a senior American politician). If there’s not enough material included on there, then it ought to be expanded rather than deleted entirely. It shouldn’t be too hard, given that he’s been in Parliament for over a quarter of a century, and was a senior minister and Deputy PM in the last Labor government.

  • Delete If someone feels the need to seriously nominate an April Fools joke for deletion, then that's evidence that it is more disruptive than funny and should be deleted. * Pppery * it has begun... 03:14, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    @Pppery, what specifically is the disruption? Has someone changed the spelling of words at the article on April 1 because of it? (Note that it includes a clear [April Fools!] tag for responsible disclosure, making the chance of that miniscule.) Has it disturbed maintenance efforts? The nominator noted only that it was currently blank, which as I noted above is actually evidence it's functioning properly (TPH, given that, I'm curious whether you still wish to delete at all). Pppery, as with your other recent nominations of April Fools-related material, you claim hypothetical disruption without evidence. Responsible jokes help make Wikipedia a pleasant community, and I'd rather we preserve them than delete all evidence of them, preventing future editors browsing WP:APRIL2021 from a chuckle they might otherwise have. This editnotice appears one day a year, in a form that could not possibly be misconstrued by a reasonable editor as anything other than a joke. (If "Editors who pronounce Rs in this article may be blocked and/or thrown into the harbor" doesn't register as humor, there are CIR issues.) There is no harm. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 05:13, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    The above is a consistent stance that I apply to all April Fools' jokes (and have in several other cases: Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Vladimir Putin, Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/Willy on wheels) not an evaluation of the merits of one specific template -- the disruption is that someone, for whatever reason, felt compelled to start this discussion which is sufficient given that I view the value of April Fools jokes as neutral at best. * Pppery * it has begun... 12:29, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    I'd urge you to place a little more than zero value on responsible humor, even if you don't personally find it funny. We're not paid, so the only thing keeping us here is that we enjoy editing. Many editors find enjoyment in Wikipedia humor, and it motivates them to keep on contributing, so even if that's not true for you personally, you should want to keep it around, as it helps us with retention. I take a very hard stance on attempts at humor that could confuse readers or disrupt editors, which we absolutely need to stamp out, but the flip side of that is leaving completely harmless jokes like this alone. And I maintain that this is completely, utterly harmless—your main argument otherwise seems to be that because you are fighting to delete it, it's disruptive and should be deleted, which is tautological. Please focus your efforts to combat disruptive humor where they're actually needed instead. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 22:45, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    Comment The nominator stated it was blank, for the deletion, which it isn't, since it is locked away except on April Fool's; so "more disruptive than funny" doesn't seem to fit for nominations of blank pages. -- 65.92.247.17 (talk) 02:56, 20 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The template has no transclusions. If the template is intended to be used only as a substitution template, please add {{subst only}} to the top of the documentation, and I'll be happy to withdraw the nomination. The same goes for the other Darken template. As for the TFD banner, you'll have to take that up with the instructions on this page and the developers of Twinkle, who follow these instructions. – Jonesey95 (talk) 19:39, 13 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The "Tfd" banner MUST NEVER be inserted in a template outside a noinclude section, and notably NEVER when the template does not generate a text meant to be visible.
As documented, this template is used to generate style fragments in CSS or in attributes (part of RGB colors): posting HTML elements there generate invalid CSS or invalid HTML attribute.
Remember that this is a helper template. It has been (and is still) used to build statistic tables or graphs with colors from computed values (from a percentage). "Darken1" itself is used inside "Darken", and Darken works exactly like "Lighten", they are correlated and documented the same way.
Using "safesubst" (added in these templates since 2010, the templates were created and first documented in 2007) is optional: safesubst will not be used for contents like statistics that will vary over time but for which we need to have coherent and synchronized coloring. But for static tables that are normally immutable, it can be safe-substituted. So ading "Substonly" to the doc is inaccurate because it is clearly optional !
And the documentation already says since 2010 at the top that these templates "CAN BE substituted" (not "MUST BE").
Note also that some pages that were using it on Commons are now hosted elsewhere (e.g. in Meta, or in other projects). But the tempaltes remain in Commons, because it is still useful for new contents and there's no need to rewrite it and redocument it: deletion would be just a waste of time. verdy_p (talk) 23:15, 13 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Please don't make up rules on how the TfD banner should be used. Jonesey95 was correct in their usage and even pointed to you to where the instructions are found. If you have any complaints, go there. Gonnym (talk) 13:17, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Indeed, you've been pushing for TfD tags to be noincluded, against consensus, basically for as long as I've been active on Wikipedia. This is counterproductive. * Pppery * it has begun... 20:24, 20 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Comment: At the very least, it seems that {{Darken1}} could easily be merged into {{Darken}}, since the former's contents appear to be a simple math function. I may misunderstand though. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:34, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Various pages are built using it (first without safesubst while editing, then with safesubst if values are stable and colors can be statically precomputed), notably statistics (to colorize table cells).
Also NEVER place a Tfd banner at top, inside the transcluded content of the template, ONLY in its "noinclude" section. Thanks! verdy_p (talk) 15:20, 13 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Comment: I'm finding it improbable that this template is still used. Templates that aren't auto-subst usually end up with transclusions, while this template does not have any (and neither do any of the other 3 templates in this set). While these might have been used at one point in time, it does not seem they are still used. Gonnym (talk) 13:21, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I also don't see any real-life use cases for this. Any color usage that is based on a real-life object (sports team, political party, etc) uses the official colors. When one of those colors needs adjusting they should be adjusted for accessibility and color contrast and not randomly made light or dark. If anyone wants to play with colors, there are many, better, sites online that do that. Gonnym (talk) 13:25, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Delete (and would support deletion of the entire set) per my comments. Not used, no indication that it has anywhere to be used, and if anyone wants to calculate values for something, Google is their friend. Gonnym (talk) 21:25, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Earthquake energy class[edit]

No transclusions. It appears that {{Earthquake magnitude}} may be sufficient to meet the need. – Jonesey95 (talk) 06:01, 12 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The "energy class" (K) scale of EQ strength was developed by Soviet seismologists, and became the predominant scale used in the Soviet Union and allied states (like Cuba). It is based on the actual energy of an earthquake, instead of the magnitude of an instrumental effect such as Richter based his "magnitude" (M) scales on. To suggest that energy scale is not needed because M scales "may be sufficient to meet the need" is like saying that the Kelvin temperature scale is not needed because it is hardly used and the Fahrenheit scale "may be sufficient".
The lack of transclusions reflects en.wp's predominately Western orientation, and possibly non-awareness that this template exists. When some Anglophone editor eventually has a need to express "K" this template should be available as a standard, vetted usage. And without a template to track these kinds of things how do we know that occasions have not occurred where this template could have been used but the editor was not aware of the existence of this template?
A further reason for keeping this template is for the benefit of other wikis in countries where the energy class scale is used, so they don't have to re-invent this template.

Template:Bridgerton[edit]

I think this was created a little too early, as it does not meet the criteria at WP:NAVBOX. It has too few links in it's current state. Also, the articles in the second section seem to (or will) link to the same articles in the first section, which seems kinda superfluous. – JuneGloom07 Talk 17:07, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
