Template:Online source (edit · talk · history · links · logs · subpages · delete)
Template:Press (edit · talk · history · links · logs · subpages · delete)

Propose merging Template:Online source with Template:Press.
I recently ran across a talk page that had uses both of these templates: Talk:Sinbad (comedian). The two templates seems as though they are capable of citing the exact same information. Also, the templates appear completely redundant. These two templates should be merged so that only one template needs to be used to present this information on a talk page. Steel1943 (talk) 22:00, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Note. I also noticed that these two templates put the articles in two different categories. If this merger occurs, I recommend that either the categories be merged as well, or for there to be a function on the "new" template that could be set up to designate which on of the two categories the article gets placed. Steel1943 (talk) 22:08, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Support merge, but the template would have to include both categories unless there is a consensus at CfD to merge them as well. Technical 13 (talk) 01:06, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
Oy. Now that is confusing. I do think these are two different things, but the line is rather fuzzy. For example, if a newspaper says "according to wikipedia, Jimmy Wales has blue eyes, but in reality they are shimmering green" - now, is that "citing" wikipedia? Or is it just the WP page as a subject of press coverage? Given that, I think we should delete {{Notable citation}}, and merge these other two, and then make sure they are all focused on when press mention the wikipedia article. Tagging wikipedia articles because someone cited them in an academic paper is a bit ridiculous and navel gazing of us.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 06:11, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion so a clearer consensus may be reached.
Please add new comments below this notice. Thanks, Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 00:23, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

In response to the concern mentioned prior to this relisting, I had listed this for proposal based on the current functions of these templates. Somewhere down the line, these two templates were edited to essentially replicate each other in function, causing them to look like duplicates of each other. However, in response to Obi-Wan Kenobi's thought to delete {{Notable citation}}, I would actually think that the better option would be to make it a redirect to target the title of the "new" template created by this merge (provided that there is a merge that happens during this discussion); that way, those articles can be possibly tagged properly with a template. Steel1943 (talk) 06:49, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
In addition to my last statement, in regards to JohnnyMrNinja's statement about Template:Online source previously having a "different function", after understanding what that previous function was, it still seems very similar to what Template:Press is now; both templates seem to mention when a Wikipedia page is referenced by some other media source, in one way or another. Steel1943 (talk) 07:13, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
Support merge of template & respective categories. I'm leaning toward the Template:online source being the one to merge to, since it seems more clear in what its purpose is. Funandtrvl (talk) 19:54, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Merge all: We've also got {{high traffic}} and (perhaps) {{notable citation}}; there should be only one template, or maybe two (one for mentioning and one for citing). --NYKevin 20:12, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
