Template:Video game engines (edit · talk · history · links · logs · subpages · delete)

This is essentially a template that lists the articles in the category. In my opinion, they are not linked closely enough that they should have a nav template between them - but if they do, WP:NAV suggests using the self-populating {{otherarticles}} template instead. I think that is a better fit here. Addionne (talk) 15:54, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

It is not just a copy of the category, but a list of distinction between FOSS and non-FOSS software, as plenty of other FOSS/non-FOSS aggregation templates exist for other software classifications. --Toussaint (talk) 06:08, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

KeepIt's going over VG engines as a whole, and I realy don't think you can classify VG engines more specifically than just "Video game engines" without upsetting some people, even the FPS engine article is a long shot. It may be a smidgen redunant but nothing that disrupts Wikipedia. Sincerely Subzerosmokerain (talk) 17:56, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Template:Patton tank navigation (edit · talk · history · links · logs · subpages · delete)

See WP:Articles for deletion/Patton tank.The Patton tanks have little in common. Just sharing the namesake of Patton does not make them part of a family. Tanks of the U.S. in the Cold War covers the same topic. Marcus Qwertyus 19:44, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

  • keep. That's a rather blinkered view. From an operational or strategic view, they have everything in common, fulfilling the same role. The US Army considered this a series of Main Battle Tanks, else why would they have given them a common name? And that list article cannot replace this in-page navigation template. Michael Z. 2010-12-06 21:55 z

Keep. That this template is unused is a good sign that images do not use currency for size comparisons. As users upload images that do so, this tag is added to the image description. See the related category, Category:Images with coins to indicate scale; "Administrators: Please do not delete this category even if it is empty! Categories with this message may be empty occasionally or even most of the time." --Geniac (talk) 01:29, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Oppose it shouldn't be in direct use. It's designed that way. The concept is that this template is a copy of the corresponding infobox on the Italian Wikipedia. If an Italian editor wants to translate an article from there to here, they can copy and paste the infobox out of the Italian Wikipedia article, and then substitute the infobox. The result is that this template converts the Italian code into the English Wikipedia's {{infobox road}} for output. Do some cleanup, finish translating the article to English and, voilà, we have another Italian autostrada article ready. Imzadi 1979  01:03, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
