TFD[edit]

Here are reasons why a template was kept.

  1. Article navigation or sorting is important
  2. Navboxes have at least three useful links
  3. Suitable replacements do not yet exist
  4. Useful purpose

Here are reasons why a template was deleted.

  1. Changes in WikiProject structure and practices
  2. Changes in WikiProject banner usage
  3. Consolidation with or redundancy to another template
  4. Deprecation and/or lack of use
  5. Inappropriate use of Template namespace
  6. Navboxes with one or two useful links or too many red links
  7. Project-specific cleanup/warnings are frowned upon
  8. Upgrades in MediaWiki software

Infoboxes[edit]

It is worth noting that {{Infobox road}}, a template that made by-state infoboxes unnecessary, was widely used by late 2006. A complete redesign in 2010 globalized the template and added the ability to handle four sections. The creation of {{Infobox road small}} also made variations on Infobox road unnecessary. Check the linked debates for details on each nomination.

Geographic area navboxes[edit]

Navboxes for highways located within a geographic area (such as "Roads in X metropolitan area", "State highways in X County", "Interstate highways in [state]", etc.) are generally considered to be redundant to categories and lists. They are likely to be deleted.

Stub sorting[edit]

In the early days of USRD, stub sorting was a mess. In 2007, WP:WSS proposed renaming all of the templates to {{<state>-road-stub}}, which succeeded in organizing the templates. At first, each state had its own stub category. As a category was emptied, the stub template was changed to put any subsequently added articles into a regional category.
