Only four transclusions. Delete, merge into {{Infobox monarch}}, or make it a module for use in that template. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 22:15, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Delete and replace with Infobox royalty (monarch was deprecated) without merging anything. There are not enough articles that would benefit from the change.--eh bien mon prince (talk) 06:50, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion so a clearer consensus may be reached.
Please add new comments below this notice. Thanks, Jax 0677 (talk) 05:06, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

I do not see how this is an improvement over Template:Future sport and the other "future" templates that we deprecated, then eventually deleted, back in 2009. See Wikipedia:Centralized discussion/Deprecating "Future" templates. The reason back then, as it is now: "There is no reason to tell our readers something that is (a) more than obvious, and (b) already covered by our general disclaimer." The other issue is this new template displays a variation of the phrase used on Template:current sport: "Information may change rapidly before the event" (emphasis added). Such rapid editing on these articles usually do not happen on a constant ongoing 24-hour cycle unless new verifiable content about the future event occurs. And then that rapid editing only lasts until the news spike on that future topic settles down again. Thus, this tag has the potential to sit on an article like 2020 Summer Olympics for several months without little or no updates -- another concern that was discussed on the aforementioned 2009 WP:DFUTURE discussion -- despite what the new tag says.

  • Keep. I don't want this deleted. It's very fine. WikiPolice66 (talk) 11:02, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Consensus is plainly not to have this particular type of disclaimer banner. Chris Cunningham (user:thumperward) (talk) 13:19, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete duplication of deleted {tl|future sport}}. The only template needed is {{current sport}} as that indicates to editors they could enter in an edit conflict and cleanup message {{out of date}}. Many things are projected, they don't need a template to indicate such WP:NODISCLAIMERS; speedy delete as a db-repost -- 70.50.151.11 (talk) 06:39, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
