February 2011[edit]


Propose Delete. Unused. Malformed. Never requested. Dawynn (talk) 13:27, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Well, you know where to propose deletion... :) Grutness...wha? 09:01, 9 February 2011 (UTC)


I was optimistic when I wrote the other day that we had a few months to discuss this one and work out with WP:Sudan what stub types were needed for Southern Sudan - this one has arrived unproposed already. I've tidied it up (it had a redlinked category and an incorrect, space-laden name), and upmerged it to Sudan stubs for now. There's not really much point in having a separate template yet since we don't know yet what the new country will be called (there have been several suggestions, and I don't want to suddenly find in July that we've got to move a bunch of SouthernSudan-foo-stub templates to Jubaland-foo-stub). This one can probably stay upmerged for now (no point really in deleting then re-creating in July), but a moratorium on other stub types until there's been some discussion about them (as there's supposed to be, of course) would probably be a good thing!

It took that long!, I seem to remember Kosovo popping up every couple of weeks for about a year before it declared independence. I agree in keeping this as the one and only template for SouthernSudan till they sort themselves out. Waacstats (talk) 13:19, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
At the moment it looks likely that the country's new name will end up being South Sudan - we'll have to keep an eye out for variant names in templates... Grutness...wha? 22:14, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

{{Normandy-stub}} / Category:Normandy stubs and {{Brittany-stub}} / Category:Brittany stubs[edit]

Newly acquired without proposal; seem reasonably well-formed and potentially useful, though the inclusion of Category:Channel Islands stubs in the former category is somewhat controversial, to say the least (given that we use modern regional/national boundaries for stub types), as is their parenting directly by Category:Europe stubs rather than Category:France stubs. Currently pretty sparsely populated - would need upmerging if not more effectively populated/populable. Grutness...wha? 03:41, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Both seem reasonable, will try and see if I can populate them abit more over the weekend otherwise upmerge and remove the channel island stubs. Waacstats (talk) 13:15, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Togo Stubs[edit]

Found an odd situation in Approved Geography Stubs to be created, Togo geography stubs. The parent category has one subcategory at Kara Region geography stubs. The parent has 90 some stubs and the subcategory has 600 some. There are six upmerged templates for the Kara category listed, looks reasonable for 600 stubs. However, from the parent there are three other categories with four to nine upmerge templates also listed as approved. Archived discussion is a little ambiguous. I was thinking to remove the three additional categories and stubtypes from the approved list, since splitting 90 stubs into three categories / 20 upmerged templates makes little sense. Comments?

  • Any idea whethr all the stubs in the Kara cat are genuinely for places there? It maybe that there's been some mis-stubbing. Or it's possible that someone/bot's been making lots of stub articles, and the other proposals will get populated very soon. Grutness...wha? 23:52, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
All of the stubs in the Kara category are for places in Kara, per random sampling. All of the stubs there were created in May '08, too. The proposal at that time said someone created a crazy amount of Kara stubs, but none for any of the other regions. Aelfthrytha (talk) 02:58, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
Anyone? Help?? Aelfthrytha (talk) 23:23, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
