Template:Infobox subnational economy (edit · talk · history · links · logs · subpages · delete)

Only 17 transclusions. Redundant to {{Infobox economy}}. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:07, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

  • merge with infobox economy. Frietjes (talk) 19:27, 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) 05:46, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Merge as redundant or keep (hopefully adding some documentation) if merging proves to be too hard for the benefit, as I am not persuaded that it should be deleted without a replacement —PC-XT+ 11:27, 5 March 2014 (UTC) 19:53, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Merging won't be easy though, Infobox economy is made to be used with figures from the CIA World Factbook, which doesn't provide any information about subnational economies.--eh bien mon prince (talk) 15:06, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
It didn't look like it would be too hard to do, but I know it won't be simple. I know that you know what you are talking about, so I added a keep option to my !vote. —PC-XT+ 19:53, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Template:NYStateOfficers[edit]

The following discussion is an archived debate of the proposed deletion of the template 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). No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the discussion was no conensus to merge {{NYStateOfficers}} and {{Current New York statewide political officials}}. However, there does appear to be some consensus to merge {{NYStateOfficers}} with {{NewYorkStateExecutiveDepartments}}, but the later template was not tagged for this discussion. Although, you don't need to go through TfD to merge two templates, so just do it if there are no objections. Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 05:32, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Template:Current New York statewide political officials (edit · talk · history · links · logs · subpages · delete)

Propose merging Template:NYStateOfficers with Template:Current New York statewide political officials.
The template duplicates functionality of the other, standardized template. Int21h (talk) 04:58, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

No, it doesn't. "NYStateOfficers" shows links to the offices, both extant and defunct, guiding the user to articles on the history of the office and a complete list of the holders of the office throughout the times. "Current New York statewide political officials" shows links to the incumbent office-holders, guiding the user to articles with bios on just one person. Could you outline how these two completely different things could be merged? Kraxler (talk) 13:22, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
The offices are enclosed in <small> tags; the only office not listed on that template is the Clerk and Associate Judges of the Court of Appeals, as well as the defunct offices. I don't see why we could not add a subsection for defunct offices as well, just without any officeholders listed. Int21h (talk) 09:53, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
And as an aside, how would you feel about merging it with Template:NewYorkStateExecutiveDepartments? Int21h (talk) 10:02, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes, "NYStateOfficers" and "NewYorkStateExecutiveDepartments" cover very similar things and could/should be merged. The merged template should then be added to articles/lists on the various government offices. "Current New York statewide political officials" should remain separate, and should be added to articles/bios on the office-holders. Kraxler (talk) 19:08, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
What should it be named? "NewYorkStateOffices"? "NewYorkStateGovernment"? Int21h (talk) 22:47, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Template:Infobox antarctic base (edit · talk · history · links · logs · subpages · delete)

Newly created infobox with two transclusions. From the two instances of use so far, it doesn't seem to do anything that Template:Infobox settlement cannot handle. eh bien mon prince (talk) 00:14, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
