Seems to be used as a navbox but is only navigation 2 articles (fails the soft WP:NENAN requirement). These ships are also unrelated, so it directly fails to meet the criteria of WP:NAVBOX. Izno (talk) 20:21, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

  • Support – Doesn't aid in navigation as the two articles reference each other at the very top of their pages. Nihlus 09:43, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Are the spacecraft in Template:Spaceships named Enterprise related (except the orbiter and the starship)? And, @Izno, please, don't call them "ships", as "spaceships" and "starships" don't exist! --Aledownload (talk) 13:38, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Navboxes that don't provide useful navigation. There are only three relevant links: Khowar language, Khowar alphabet and possibly Anjuman-e-Tarraqui-e-Khowar. The rest are either generic articles, or redlinks to articles that either have been deleted at AfD or are unlikely to ever be created. – Uanfala

  • delete the sidebar, no opinion on the navbox. Frietjes (talk) 15:35, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

LST-ify This is exactly the same type of template as Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2016 October 30#.22List of killings.22 templates without significant_parameters (which was closed as LST-ify) and thus should be LST-ified for the same reason Pppery 18:13, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

That's a separate discussion. Could you please explain your reasoning here? I'm not sure what policy supports deletion, especially considering the massive amount of history from SharkD and others. How does moving the text from the template to a linked section (and deleting the template) satisfy the attribution terms of GFDL and CC? Are you suggestion a cross-namespace redirect? ▫ JohnnyMrNinja 07:07, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
See the first bullet point of WP:TG; this is needlessly storing article text in templates. As for attribution situations, the usual solution is to move the template to mainspace without leaving a redirect and then redirect it to the article. Pppery 22:04, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. ▫ JohnnyMrNinja 05:14, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

  • LST-ify - Just to be 100% clear, Pppery answered my questions and I agree with their proposal. Other contributors were notified but do not appear to be interested. Really there appears to be nothing lost here, so why not just do it to comply with policy. ▫ JohnnyMrNinja 04:15, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

  • No objection to deletion as they seemed like a good idea at the time but have not been used, and are unlikely to be ever used. I am fine with whatever outcome of this discussion. Cheers and thanks for notifying me. Arnoutf (talk) 06:44, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Propose merging Template:Infobox Dalai Lama with Template:Infobox religious biography.
per WP:INFOCOL and MOS:IB. -- Pankaj Jain Capankajsmilyo (talk · contribs · count) 08:26, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Merge per nom. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 08:41, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Propose renaming Template:Infobox religious biography to Template:Infobox religious figures.
    I find the design of "Infobox religious biography" to be suitable for folks like Samuel or Anna the Prophetess when not all editors agree if these are historical figures or merely literary figures. In many cases Wikipedia (or at least the infoboxes) doesn't need to specify (or cannot specify) who is of which type. Have an infobox that doesn't imply either way can save a lot of hassle and debate. Renaming will still make it suitable for historical figures and even more so for literary figures. Furthermore, many Wikipedia articles about historical figures are still not a "detailed description of that person's life"-- which what a biography is-- because it is just an encyclopedia article. tahc chat 15:33, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

I was asking on the talk page for help, but no one answered so far. If I want to use it in a right way, I will create it new. If you want, you can move it into my sandbox. Regards --Rafael Zink (talk) 07:46, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
