Template:Bill Paxton (edit · talk · history · links · logs · subpages · delete)

Only two films. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 17:09, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Comment: There may be enough coverage to talk about Paxton's direction of the music video "Fish Heads". If template is deleted, please ensure that the film articles have Paxton's other works mentioned in the "See also" section. Erik (talk) 17:12, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
  • I liked the first film. Loved the second film. Really like the actor.
    Delete. Why do we need a template for 2 bloody films? Varlaam (talk) 00:52, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Template:Toshiya Ueno (edit · talk · history · links · logs · subpages · delete)

Only navigates two films. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 07:23, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Delete this one and all the ones below from same editor. 2-4 films does not warrant a nav box. Further, most of these folks are barely notable in their own right and many of their works are either barely notable or not notable at all and have no articles. -- Collectonian (talk · contribs) 14:28, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep This and all below-- Time-wasting stupid nominations. Notable directors with many notable films. Templates were started for the additions of those film articles, which will come. Deleting them is only a waste of your time, because they will return. P.S.-- didn't notice the comment above. Asserting that directors like Yasuharu Hasebe, Kan Mukai and each of the rest of these directors are "barely notable" is a statement which combines phenomenal ignorance with phenomenal arrogance. Dekkappai (talk) 14:54, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
    • Stupid? Some of these directors are redlinks, they are certainly not all notable. If you want to call of these stupid, you might want to review how "stupid" they are. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 17:05, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Neutral though I think it is simpler to have a "See also" section linking to the director's one other work than to resort to template coding. Erik (talk) 15:41, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Question. What harm are the templates doing? (E.g. what resources are they unconscionably wasting?) -- Hoary (talk) 15:47, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Every template adds load time and processing time to an article as they have to be translated before the article is served. See the lengthy arguments about references for the full technical details on how templates impact articles. Excessive and unnecessary templates just bogs down the article. -- Collectonian (talk · contribs) 15:49, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Where are the lengthy arguments? I could understand situations where there are a half dozen templates, all with many links, but for a template like this, the impact has to be minuscule. It seems to me to be more an argument about aesthetics, like whether or not we need such a formal setup for a set of articles. Erik (talk) 17:17, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Ah yes, I've heard of this. I don't recall ever having read anything on the matter by somebody who did calculations or timings, but of course either it is an issue or it isn't one. If it isn't, then we have nothing to talk about, so let's assume for a moment that it is. The first of these templates, Template:Toshiya Ueno, appears on two pages. One has a title for which the term "NSFW" might have been invented; the other is Ambiguous (film). When I am about to edit the latter, I see a list of templates within it. There are 29 of these. For comparison with a page under the control of somebody I might expect to be concerned about these matters, I now turn to User:Koavf (and more precisely, this version thereof). I set about to edit it, and thereupon see a list of templates including:

That's a total of over eighty fifty. Would Koavf care to comment on what seems to be a contrast between (a) his lack of enthusiasm for the templatifying of articles and (b) his enthusiasm for templatifying his own page? -- Hoary (talk) 00:21, 19 February 2010 (UTC) ........ Amended -- Hoary (talk) 03:57, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Would you care to explain precisely how that's of any relevance whatsoever to this discussion? 81.111.114.131 (talk) 03:12, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
An excellent question. Much of it was indeed irrelevant, and I've just now removed that. We've been told that the invocation of templates adds to server drain. Assuming that this is indeed a matter of concern, I'd like to know why the user who seems keenest to delete templates from Wikipedia articles (where they may or may not be helpful) is so keen to put them on his own user page. I do not presume to suggest that the answer would interest everybody here, but I'd guess that it would interest other people beyond myself, which is why I pose it here. ¶ But of course it wasn't Koavf but User:Collectonian who wrote above Every template adds load time and processing time to an article as they have to be translated before the article is served. On her page, Collectonian too transcludes over fifty templates. Perhaps she too would care to comment. -- Hoary (talk) 03:57, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Comment If someone wants me to take off a template or two or thirty from my userpage, that's fine. My argument was never about server load; it was the superfluousness of some of the templates. A template that "navigates" between two bluelinks and thirty redlinks is useless and should be deleted. Server load is a significant issue for a site with as much traffic as Wikipedia and I would be willing to do my part to cut down on it if someone informed me of this being some critical matter. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 07:30, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Comment It also makes it more difficult for users to navigate categories if they are filled with essentially superfluous and unnecessary templates. Keeping them also encourages the creation of more equally ephemeral templates that don't actually serve the function of navigating users between sets of articles. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 23:08, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Two arguments, of which the second seems logical enough (though I wonder about its premisses). As for the first, I suppose that you're talking about navigating around template categories. Correct me if I'm wrong there; but if I'm right, wouldn't an easier solution be the more careful categorization of templates? -- Hoary (talk) 04:38, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Comment If someone wants to make more specific categories, that's fine with me, but it's hard to think of a more simple category than some of these and having them flooded with basically useless templates serves no one's interest. In fact, if they were more specifically categorized, that would simply make a more Byzantine and difficult categorization scheme of unnecessary templates... It seems like that would only compound the problem. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 07:34, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Comment Template now has three four five films. Note: the "barely-notable" shlubb Toshiya Ueno won the Best Director prize at the first Pink Grand Prix, he's had two films win the #1 prize, and had a career retrospective at Tokyo's Athénée Francais. All the directors listed here which are under my watch are of a comparable standing at least, and all have articles. If the "some of these directors are redlinks" statement refers to some of these Japanese directors, then perhaps we have a color-blindness issue? Dekkappai (talk) 05:11, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Comment The redlinked directors may be great and notable, but they don't have articles on en.wp, so there is not much to be navigated yet. I am nominating these templates with no discrimination against them being remade if there is enough substantial content in the future, but as it stands, a template with a redlink director, four redlink films, and two bluelink films is simply not useful enough to exist; it does not aid a user in actually navigating between articles, which is the entire purpose of this type of template. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 07:30, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep. Oh dear me, such titles for moving pictures! But if Wikipedia must present such horrors, let it do so in a nice little template that persons of a delicate sensibility may safely ignore. -- Hoary (talk) 03:49, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Delete - Not enough films to warrant a template. Garion96 (talk) 11:00, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
    • Question How many is enough? The template currently has three four five and it will be easy to add more. In fact, given this director, more are bound to come: HERE is a list of 27 films the director made until 2003. And he's still active, and "notable" enough to have had a career retrospective at Tokyo's Athénée Francais. Dekkappai (talk) 15:38, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
      • Response to lack of answer...Yeah, that's what I thought... Dekkappai (talk) 06:12, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep. Enough links have been added that this is now a useful navbox. By the way, for those who think Justin might be nominating these templates based on the directors' nationality or the movies' content, you obviously haven't noticed the numerous other director and film series templates he has nominated. It's all about the number of links in the template at the time he nominates it. --RL0919 (talk) 14:41, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
    Comment I don't think anyone has implied that these nominations were in any way based on the subjects' nationality. (I may have pointed out that they're Japanese, but only because being so makes their "notability" more difficult for non-Japanese speakers to determine.) The subject matter of the films was brought up by an ISP, but that was just silly. And then, of course, "delete everything ever written by this editor" (I paraphrase) was mentioned in all good faith ;) ...In about 12 hours I hope to have another film or two done to address the one template below you haven't voted "Keep". Hoping the decision isn't closed before then (either way), as I do want to have the filling-out of these templates well under-way by the end of this process. Regards. 18:50, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Neutral because while two films is too small a set for a template, there needs to be an approach to connect them sans template. If the template is deleted, please ensure that there is a "See also" section mentioning the director's other work. Erik (talk) 15:47, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep now that navigation has been boosted and has potential to be boosted further, thanks to Dekkappai's efforts. Erik (talk) 02:48, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep Now has three four five films. Director is currently active, and besides winning Best New Director and Best Director, already has five four more films (in addition to the three four with articles started) listed at the Pink Grand Prix (the "Academy Awards" of pink). Dekkappai (talk) 00:52, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Delete - underpopulated, and in porn three films is nothing. 81.111.114.131 (talk) 03:14, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • The genre being pornographic should not have any bearing on navigation. The point of the navigation template is to show related articles, in this case films directed by the same person. How else do you suggest that readers navigate from one film article to another? Erik (talk) 03:32, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • The pornographic nature is relevant here. Porn is produced in vastly greater quantities than mainstream cinema, typically on a lower budget, the vast majority of which is not notable, and there are typically no relations between most works to justify navigation. 81.111.114.131 (talk) 03:57, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Unless you have some references (sic!) to support that pornographic pictures are produced in vaster quantity than non-pornographic pictures (the comparison merely with cinema pictures, when TV pictures are notable enough, documentaries etc is aimed to give a false view on the situation, no bad faith assumed), your opinion is just that: Original research. --Anime Addict AA (talk) 00:18, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
  • And again, this is "porn" lite. These Pink films are films with softcore erotic content. They come in all genres-- drama, horror, comedy, sci-fi, etc. They just have a nude or sex scene every 15 minutes or so. These are not porn videos. Dekkappai (talk) 00:22, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep. Normally I would defer to the superior knowledge of 81.111.114.131, but I am unable to resist the promise of "sexy thighs". Keep, dammit! -- Hoary (talk) 03:51, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep. Enough links have been added to make a useful navbox. Doesn't matter what the content of the movies is, as long as the articles exist and meet the minimum requirements to not be deleted. --RL0919 (talk) 14:43, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Keep since set of three films is enough of a threshold for me and since Dekkappai says that more works by this director exist and can have articles. Erik (talk) 20:01, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep - Actually three films. Just located a film article I'd started but forgot to include in the template. Many more can be started on this notable director. Dekkappai (talk) 19:44, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Delete - three films for a porn director is not a high output. 81.111.114.131 (talk) 03:15, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • The genre being pornographic has no bearing on navigation. Why does the navigation template not benefit the reader? It is a formal setup of films directed by a person. Like Dekkappai said, more articles can be started, making the template even more invaluable. Erik (talk) 03:34, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Question Is there a syntactician in the house? I would like a labeled tree diagram of the determiner phrase "office lady love juice". -- Hoary (talk) 03:55, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Keep because three films is a sufficient set for a highlighted arrangement. The director's other works would otherwise not be available in the footer for readers to follow with ease if they want to visit these articles, too. Erik (talk) 16:31, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Delete - underpopulated, porn films rarely need navigation. 81.111.114.131 (talk) 03:19, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Why should they need navigation less than films of other genres? Please do not discriminate. Erik (talk) 03:35, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Also, note that though the Japanese use the term "porn" for these films, "erotic" is probably a better translation. They're soft-core productions similar in the amount of erotic content to those shown in US drive-ins and grindhouses during the '60s and '70s, but with-- according to some-- often higher artistic value, and cinematic interest. Many very accomplished directors have started in this genre and gone on to other areas (such significant people as Yōjirō Takita-- last year's winner of the US Academy Award for best foreign film, Kiyoshi Kurosawa and Shusuke Kaneko for example). Other highly respected directors have worked in the genre almost exclusively-- Tatsumi Kumashiro, Noboru Tanaka, Kōji Wakamatsu... Others, like Teruo Ishii have looked at it as just one more genre to work in occasionally throughout their career. In any case, the clear separation between "adult" and mainstream entertainment which exists in the US is not the same in Japan. Simple porn-vids, these are not. Dekkappai (talk) 03:53, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep Four Five films now. Again, a prolific (over 40 films as of 2009, and still active), and high-profile pink film director-- three films in the #1 spot at Pink Grand Prix, and several other films awarded. Dekkappai (talk) 08:27, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Keep Four Five Six films now. Ohara was a prolific high-profile director at Nikkatsu, the oldest of Japan's major film studios. To dismiss him or his films as "barely notable" is ridiculous. As with all the other Japanese directors on this page, many more films can be added to his template. Dekkappai (talk) 03:33, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Question Haven't the nominator's concerns about all the Japanese director templates been addressed? Will these nominations be withdrawn, or should I continue populating these templates? This is productive work, and I don't mind doing it, but I was in the middle of another project when these deletion nominations came up, and I don't want to lose track of where I was on that one... Will continue for now anyway... Dekkappai (talk) 16:45, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Delete - underpopulated. 81.111.114.131 (talk) 03:18, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep Now has three four films. As a producer, Kan Mukai helped start the careers of such filmmakers as cult horror/shock-meister Hisayasu Satō and US Academy Award-winner Yōjirō Takita. As a director, he made nearly 200 films, and Kinema Junpo calls him, "the only genre director who could rival Kōji Wakamatsu". So, yeah, more films can and will be added to the template. Dekkappai (talk) 22:06, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep. Yes, let it grow to include almost 200 items, whereupon somebody can nominate it for deletion a second time, on the grounds of excessive bulk and confusingness, and all the denizens of this happy place can continue to enjoy themselves. -- Hoary (talk) 03:59, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Keep. The current number of links is marginal, but I'll take the other commenters' word on it that he has a number of other notable films that are likely to be added. --RL0919 (talk) 14:50, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
    Comment Oddly enough, though he's probably the most significant figure in the genre among these nominations, Mukai's template is proving the most difficult to fill out-- probably because he's the oldest of the group. I've got a lot of information about a lot of his movies, and I've got a lot of posters of his movies, but I don't have both for very many of his movies, resulting in things like using a Spanish poster for Deep Throat in Tokyo. Anyway, I hope to have another film on the template in about 12 hours-- poster image or no. Dekkappai (talk) 19:07, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

If the template is deleted, please ensure that there is a "See also" section mentioning the director's other work. Oh, and "broken" is not a reason to delete.

Looks incomplete and has a significant portion of redlinks. If this is to remain, it must be cleaned up. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 07:14, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Weak Keep because the notoriety of the director seems to indicate that these works should be covered, just hard to locate the coverage. On the other hand, though, a better way to organize the director and his films is to have a table at Pramathesh Barua with each row having information about each film, since it may be that there is not much to say about them. Erik (talk) 18:22, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Keep since set of three films is enough for the formal arrangement of the template. Each article is not going to mention the other articles so readily. In addition, Jenson has a 2003 film called Family Tree. Judging from search engine results, there may be some precedent for at least a stub article. Erik (talk) 18:39, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

I would like to see more of the Romanian WP film articles translated to get rid of the red from this template. Is the purpose of WP to educate us about things we already know, or about things we complacent English speakers do not know about? There is an entire world out there we never get to hear about.

  • Keep for now as it appears to be a work in progress. Can renominate a few months out if nothing is being done to create the links.

Only navigates three articles. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 05:59, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Keep because a set of three related articles is enough for a formal arrangement in a navigation template. This way, the related articles are more discoverable for purposes of navigation, as opposed to reading the prose of one topic for links to other topics. The template essentially highlights the relationships. I do suggest renaming the template to something like "Jogi and remakes"; "inspired by" sounds too weak.

      These lists serve to group together an assortment of disparate information that is entirely unrelated other than for the purely random coincidence of having a series of the same length. At least until that time (next year) when somebody releases another film. When would I ever consult these lists? Never. Varlaam (talk) 02:18, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Delete. Not a good basis for a navbox, because a movie could contain depictions of a variety of different conditions and situations, leading to a proliferation of navboxes connecting movie articles on the basis of what may be a small element of the work.

  • Oppose {{for}} is formulaic, while {{for2}} is not restricted in its presentation of where to look for information, so they are not equivalent. You can use for2 to link to a section, and present it in an easily readable manner, which is not possible with for. 70.29.210.242 (talk) 05:20, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
    • Why would you ever use an article hatnote for a section?174.3.98.236 (talk) 06:54, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
    • We have SO many other templates for that. And even with {{dablink}} (which would supersede this purpose), it would be more useful: you type whatever you want. This is just cluttering templatespace and making much confusion.
    • I went back and checked the template and it is just {{dablink}} with a bunch of text.174.3.98.236 (talk) 07:02, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

update There are only 2 articles that use this template:

  • Falloutboy, I can not edit it because I am ip.
  • The hatnote in The Co-operative Bank refers to a section in its own article. It is not established weather this section is notable.174.3.98.236 (talk) 16:15, 21 February 2010 (UTC)Neither of these articles use this template.174.3.99.176 (talk) 05:58, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
The main reason for its low use is because you keep removing it even after your removals have been reverted. -- JHunterJ (talk) 20:06, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
In cases that I have seen, the template has been replaced by {{main}} which changes the nature of the link to imply that the destination is the primary article about a topic. This was not the case and generated a large number of inappropriate links. The documentation states that 'main' is not to be used for these purposes. This has created a lot of unnecessary work for editors. -- EdJogg (talk) 14:46, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Keep. The {{For2}} template is more versatile than the {{For}} template. So I agree with the first opposer that deleting {{For2}} would be a restrictive error.

  • Keep. Useful application of {{dablink}}. -- JHunterJ (talk) 20:06, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Strong keep -- this is the ONLY variant of the 'for' templates which allows an anchor link (ie to an article subsection) to be hidden using the pipe trick. This allows editors to provide the neatest formatting with the most appropriate wording for each situation. I was not aware that we were in danger of running out of template space, so I cannot see any reason why this should need to be deleted. -- EdJogg (talk) 14:46, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
    • wp:hatnotes will tell you that this hatnote is not supposed to be used for sections.174.3.99.176 (talk) 22:07, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
      • Exactly where does it say it should not be used for sections? Perhaps that is result of a too literalistic reading of the guideline. The page also lists {{selfref}} and {{Otheruses-section}} and {{See also}}-- all of which can be used in locations other than at the top of a page. Perhaps there is a mistaken assumption that because a template is listed at WP:Hatnote that it can only be used as a hatnote. olderwiser 23:22, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
        • {{seealso}} is not a hate note.174.3.99.176 (talk) 23:32, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
          • It is included on the list at WP:Hatnote. How are you determining which template listed there is or is not a hatnote? And regardless, the guideline describes the use of hatnotes as hatnotes -- it does not presume to prohibit other uses. olderwiser 23:58, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
            • There is no such list at wp:hatnote. Yes, your argument is irrelevant.174.3.99.176 (talk) 14:44, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

  • DeleteThis template no longer occurs in wikipedia space.174.3.99.176 (talk) 15:08, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
    • Comment -- KEEP -- The template is in use at Major characters in The Railway Series and will be restored to several other pages where its use is more appropriate than any other available template. The template only 'no longer occurs' because this editor has been on a single-handed crusade to eradicate it, replacing it with any template that happened to fit. In the case of Railway engines (Thomas and Friends), this user first incorrectly replaced it with 'main', when the subsections are NOT summaries, and he has now replaced those with 'details', which does the same job as 'for2' but in an untidy manner. 'For2' allows the editor to hide the anchor of an anchored link. This is recommended practice (see WP:LINKING). I hate to think how many hundreds of articles he has damaged through his disruptive approach to editing. EdJogg (talk) 17:08, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
    • Comment 2 -- also, just to note that, judging by the articles edited, the editing style, the obsession with this template, and the sequence of comments on my talk page, 174.3.99.176 (talk · contribs) is the same editor as the poster 174.3.98.236 (talk · contribs). -- EdJogg (talk) 20:09, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Template:Boston Celtics 2008-09 Roster (edit · talk · history · links · logs · subpages · delete)

useless, it is essentially a duplicate of {{Boston Celtics current roster}} in that particular season—Chris!c/t 00:41, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Do not delete this template, because it's about the NBA defending champions, and it's important. -- Al Horford--Center of Atlanta Hawks 03:08, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Delete, none of the other defending champions have their own roster templates, only the champions should have their own templates, see Category:NBA Championship templates. The argument that defending champions' roster is important is absurd. For example, do we need to make a template for 1998–99 Chicago Bulls which also was a defending champion but ended up finished last in the East. — Martin tamb (talk) 14:54, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
