On this page, the deletion or merging of templates and modules, except as noted below, is discussed. To propose the renaming of a template or templates, use Gpedia:Requested moves.

How to use this page

What not to propose for discussion here

The majority of deletion and merger proposals concerning pages in the template namespace and module namespace should be listed on this page. However, there are a few exceptions:

Stub templates
Stub templates and categories should be listed at Categories for discussion, as these templates are merely containers for their categories, unless the stub template does not come with a category and is being nominated by itself.
Userboxes should be listed at Miscellany for deletion, regardless of the namespace in which they reside.
Speedy deletion candidates
If the template clearly satisfies a criterion for speedy deletion, tag it with a speedy deletion template. For example, if you wrote the template and request its deletion, tag it with {{Db-author}}.
Policy or guideline templates
Templates that are associated with particular Gpedia policies or guidelines, such as the speedy deletion templates, cannot be listed at TfD separately. They should be discussed on the talk page of the relevant guideline.
Template redirects
List at Redirects for discussion.

Reasons to delete a template

  1. The template violates some part of the template namespace guidelines, and can't be altered to be in compliance.
  2. The template is redundant to a better-designed template.
  3. The template is not used, either directly or by template substitution (the latter cannot be concluded from the absence of backlinks), and has no likelihood of being used.
  4. The template violates a policy such as Neutral point of view or Civility and it can't be fixed through normal editing.

Templates should not be nominated if the issue can be fixed by normal editing. Instead, you should edit the template to fix its problems. If the template is complex and you don't know how to fix it, WikiProject Templates may be able to help.

Templates for which none of these apply may be deleted by consensus here. If a template is being misused, consider clarifying its documentation to indicate the correct use, or informing those that misuse it, rather than nominating it for deletion. Initiate a discussion on the template talk page if the correct use itself is under debate.

Listing a template

To list a template for deletion or merging, follow this three-step process. Note that the "Template:" prefix should not be included anywhere when carrying out these steps (unless otherwise specified).

Step Instructions
I: Tag the template. Add one of the following codes to the top of the template page:


  • If the template nominated is inline, do not add a newline between the Tfd notice and the code of the template.
  • If the template to be nominated for deletion is protected, make a request for the Tfd tag to be added, by posting on the template's talk page and using the {{editprotected}} template to catch the attention of administrators or Template editors.
  • For templates designed to be substituted, add <noinclude>...</noinclude> around the Tfd notice to prevent it from being substituted alongside the template.
  • Do not mark the edit as minor.
  • Use an edit summary like
    Nominated for deletion; see [[Gpedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]]
    Nominated for merging; see [[Gpedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]].
  • Before saving your edit, preview your edit to ensure the Tfd message is displayed properly.

Multiple templates: If you are nominating multiple related templates, choose a meaningful title for the discussion (like "American films by decade templates"). Tag every template with {{subst:Tfd|heading=discussion title}} or {{subst:Tfm|name of other template|heading=discussion title}} instead of the versions given above, replacing discussion title with the title you chose (but still not changing the PAGENAME code).

Related categories: If including template-populated tracking categories in the Tfd nomination, add {{Catfd|template name}} to the top of any categories that would be deleted as a result of the Tfd, this time replacing template name with the name of the template being nominated. (If you instead chose a meaningful title for a multiple nomination, use {{Catfd|header=title of nomination}} instead.)

TemplateStyles pages: The above templates will not work on TemplateStyles pages. Instead, add a CSS comment to the top of the page:

/* This template is being discussed in accordance with Gpedia's deletion policy. Help reach a consensus at its entry: for discussion/Log/2022_January_28#Template:template_name.css */
II: List the template at Tfd. Follow this link to edit today's Tfd log.

Add this text at the top, just below the -->:

  • For deletion: {{subst:Tfd2|template name|text=Why you think the template should be deleted. ~~~~}}
  • For merging: {{subst:Tfm2|template name|other template's name|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

If the template has had previous Tfds, you can add {{Oldtfdlist|previous Tfd without brackets|result of previous Tfd}} directly after the Tfd2/Catfd2 template.

Use an edit summary such as
Adding [[Template:template name]].

Multiple templates: If this is a deletion proposal involving multiple templates, use the following:

{{subst:Tfd2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be deleted. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ). Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

If this is a merger proposal involving more than two templates, use the following:

{{subst:Tfm2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|with=main template (optional)|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ), plus one more in |with=. |with= does not need to be used, but should be the template that you want the other templates to be merged into. Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

Related categories: If this is a deletion proposal involving a template and a category populated solely by templates, add this code after the Tfd2 template but before the text of your rationale:

{{subst:Catfd2|category name}}
III: Notify users. Please notify the creator of the template nominated (as well as the creator of the target template, if proposing a merger). It is helpful to also notify the main contributors of the template that you are nominating. To find them, look in the page history or talk page of the template. Then, add one of the following:

to the talk pages of the template creator (and the creator of the other template for a merger) and the talk pages of the main contributors. It is also helpful to make any interested WikiProjects aware of the discussion. To do that, make sure the template's talk page is tagged with the banners of any relevant WikiProjects; please consider notifying any of them that do not use Article alerts.

Multiple templates: There is no template for notifying an editor about a multiple-template nomination: please write a personal message in these cases.

Consider adding any templates you nominate for Tfd to your watchlist. This will help ensure that the Tfd tag is not removed.

After nominating: Notify interested projects and editors

While it is sufficient to list a template for discussion at TfD (see above), nominators and others sometimes want to attract more attention from and participation by informed editors. All such efforts must comply with Gpedia's guideline against biased canvassing.

To encourage participation by less experienced editors, please avoid Gpedia-specific abbreviations in the messages you leave about the discussion, link to any relevant policies or guidelines, and link to the TfD discussion page itself. If you are recommending that a template be speedily deleted, please give the criterion that it meets.

Notifying related WikiProjects

WikiProjects are groups of editors that are interested in a particular subject or type of editing. If the article is within the scope of one or more WikiProjects, they may welcome a brief, neutral note on their project's talk page(s) about the TfD. You can use {{Tfdnotice}} for this.

Tagging the nominated template's talk page with a relevant Wikiproject's banner will result in the template being listed in that project's Article Alerts automatically, if they subscribe to the system. For instance, tagging a template with {{WikiProject Physics}} will list the discussion in Gpedia:WikiProject Physics/Article alerts.

Notifying substantial contributors to the template

While not required, it is generally considered courteous to notify the good-faith creator and any main contributors of the template and its talkpage that you are nominating for discussion. To find the creator and main contributors, look in the page history or talk page.

At this point, you've done all you need to do as nominator. Sometime after seven days have passed, someone else will either close the discussion or, where needed, "relist" it for another seven days of discussion. (That "someone" may not be you, the nominator.)

Once you have submitted a template here, no further action is necessary on your part. If the nomination is successful it will be added to the Holding Cell until the change is implemented. There is no requirement for nominators to be part of the implementation process, but they are allowed to if they so wish.

Also, consider adding any templates you nominate to your watchlist. This will help ensure that your nomination tag is not mistakenly or deliberately removed.


Twinkle is a convenient tool that can perform many of the functions of notification automatically. Twinkle does not notify WikiProjects, although many of them have automatic alerts. It is helpful to notify any interested WikiProjects that don't receive alerts, but this has to be done manually.


Anyone can join the discussion, but please understand the deletion policy and explain your reasoning.

People will sometimes also recommend subst or subst and delete and similar. This means the template text should be "merged" into the articles that use it. Depending on the content, the template page may then be deleted; if preserving the edit history for attribution is desirable, it may be history-merged with the target article or moved to mainspace and redirected.

Templates are rarely orphaned—that is, removed from pages that transclude them—before the discussion is closed. A list of open discussions eligible for closure can be found at Gpedia:Templates for discussion/Old unclosed discussions.

Closing discussion

Administrators should read the closing instructions before closing a nomination. Note that WP:XFDCloser semi-automates this process and ensures all of the appropriate steps are taken.

Current discussions

January 28

Template:Historical overview of English Indicative (table)

Unused 10-year-old article content that already exists at Realis mood#The English indicative and is not needed elsewhere. Nigej (talk) 16:29, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Current events monthly archive

Unused. It would seem that pages like Portal:Current events/December 2021 use {{Events by month}}. Gonnym (talk) 15:37, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Gira Angola venues

Unused venue navbox for the second tier of Angolan soccer. While {{Girabola venues}} is used for the first tier, for the second tier {{Segundona}} includes venues as well as seasons and clubs and is used instead. Nigej (talk) 15:25, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:George Floyd protests map/US

Unused maps. Per this Gpedia talk:WikiProject Black Lives Matter/Archive 2#Proposed splitting of Template:George Floyd protests map due to Gpedia technical limits it seems there was an idea to split the main map {{George Floyd protests map}} in two, but we seem to be still using the main one and these two are surplus to requirement. Nigej (talk) 15:08, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Faroe Islands Premier League Football teamlist

Unused navbox surplus to {{Faroese Football League}} which is used instead. Nigej (talk) 14:49, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:French local referendums

Navbox with 0 transclusions. However it was added as a link "Local referendums" at the bottom {{French elections}}. We have an article Referendums in France but that doesn't use it directly, preferring {{French elections}}. That template has a section "Referendums" (for national referendums) and links to a series of templates like {{French Polynesian elections}} which includes the local referendums there, so this template is perhaps just confusing the issue. Nigej (talk) 14:27, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Friends to-do

Unused "to-do" list related to inactive Gpedia:WikiProject Friends. Presumably used or intended to be used there. Pretty trivial content, best deleted. Nigej (talk) 13:57, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Friends Life t20 results

Unused table, abandoned in 2013. The current version of the table is inline at T20 Blast#Performance by county. Nigej (talk) 13:40, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:First Division Map

An unused map of the "Municipalities and communities that have been represented in Cypriot First Division, with at least one team". Was at one time in that article but was removed some time ago. Not suitable for any other article. Nigej (talk) 12:39, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:FEU Tamaraws

Unused roster for the 2017 FEU Tamaraws men's basketball team. The content already exists, in a slightly different form, at 2017 FEU Tamaraws men's basketball team#Current roster. Nigej (talk) 12:22, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:CSS talk archive box

Unused. Sawol (talk) 12:18, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:FGM sidebar

Unused sidebar seemingly abandoned in favour of a navbox {{Female genital mutilation}} and partly by the sidebar {{Violence against women}}. Nigej (talk) 12:13, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:FIA European F3 Championship teams

An unused template that held the current teams for the FIA Formula 3 European Championship. That league folded in 2018 and the template is no longer useful. Nigej (talk) 12:01, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:English women's cricket teams

Unused and out-of-date version of the more recent, used and maintained {{Women's County Cricket in England}}. No idea why a new one was created but that's a different issue. Nigej (talk) 10:06, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:English Chancellors of the Exchequer

Unused. Creator later split it into 5: {{House of Plantagenet Chancellors of the Exchequer}} {{House of Lancaster Chancellors of the Exchequer}} {{House of York Chancellors of the Exchequer}} {{House of Tudor Chancellors of the Exchequer}} {{House of Stuart Chancellors of the Exchequer}} so this one is not required. Nigej (talk) 09:54, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:EBL Men's Division 2 clubs

Unused, 12 years out of date and not required as {{English Basketball League}} seems to have the up-to-date information. Nigej (talk) 09:40, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Current Irish COTW

Unused banner for "the current Irish collaboration of the week" which died out 15 years ago. Won't be needed again. Nigej (talk) 09:28, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Council of the Baltic Sea States

Unused navbox. The problem is that although there's an article Council of the Baltic Sea States the other links are simply countries. So it fails the "All articles within a template relate to a single, coherent subject." part of WP:NAVBOX. There is actually only one article on this topic so no navbox required. Nigej (talk) 09:11, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Masters athletics record templates

Unused article content templates. Probably once used at List of world records in masters athletics and List of European records in masters athletics. I think the idea is that the template can be used at both for someone who has both records. The problem is that when the record is broken the old template lies around unused. Seems overly complex for the limited use. I'd have a thought an inline approach would be better even if that meant two copies sometimes. See Category:Athletics record templates for others in the series. Nigej (talk) 08:47, 28 January 2022 (UTC).

Template:2018 Summit League Women's Volleyball Standings

Unused league table. All the team-links link back to the generic college articles which contain little content relating to volleyball. We do have North Dakota Fighting Hawks women's volleyball but there are no articles about Summit League Women's Volleyball or anything similar let alone for the specific 2018 season. A case of Gpedia:Write the article first. We shouldn't be having templates lying around on the off chance someone might use them. See User talk:Mitukya4 where the user clearly intended article content but it never happened. Nigej (talk) 08:09, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Australia v New Zealand rivalry

Unused template that relates to Australia–New Zealand soccer rivalry. Added there on 25 September 2020‎ and removed two days later. Personally I don't think its needed in the article and its certainly not suitable anywhere else. Nigej (talk) 07:39, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

I thought this was removed a long time ago, but apparently not. I made this in reference to the template formerly made for the England–Scotland football rivalry and I can see that it's not suitable for needs in the article. So yeah, I'm fine with it being removed. FastCube (talk) 10:23, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

2013 Southeast Asian Games women's basketball games

This is a follow-up to Gpedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2021 October 5#Template:2013 Southeast Asian Games men's basketball game 1 where four of these single-use "convenience templates" were deleted. I am now nominating the remainder which all need to be substituted and then deleted, like the four noted. Nigej (talk) 07:17, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:London Broncos current squad

Same as the Richmond Football Club (reserves) current squad template that I nominated on January 19. Outdated team templates used on the wrong spaces. There is no way that the current template reflects the London Broncos squad for the 2014 to 2017 and 2021 seasons. The Skolars template is used on the main article for the team, but shouldn't be substituted on there as a better place would the current season but no such article exists as of the moment. These are not needed. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 02:34, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete both per nom. I've removed the links from the articles noted. They have the correct squads for their dates but contained very confusing links to these 2 templates which contain the squads for 2018. Even if the templates were updated to 2021 I can't see any point in having the content in an article and then providing a link to a template which contains exactly the same information. Note that the navboxes {{London Broncos squad}} and {{London Skolars squad}} are separate. Nigej (talk) 06:50, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

January 27


Only two links. Fails NENAN. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 21:05, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:ATP Entry Ranking Points Distribution 2008

Single use article content that should be substituted at 2008 ATP Tour#Point distribution and then deleted. Nigej (talk) 19:55, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Jainism timeline

Timeline in the form of a sidebar. Extensive text which makes it more like unreferenced article content than a navigational aid. We have an article Timeline of Jainism which is a much better place for this sort of content. Nigej (talk) 19:14, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Turkey land border crossing points map

No transclusions. This looks like single-article content that could be used at Land border crossings of Turkey but is not currently used there. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:45, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete Perhaps not used because it works very poorly. Small cluttered areas with vast empty space in the middle. Nigej (talk) 18:16, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:TFC sidebar

No transclusions. The need for this sidebar is met by the more comprehensive {{Toronto FC}}. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:39, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Rugby squad player/role/1st Five

Unused as the calls to these sub-templates of Template:Rugby squad player were removed from the template on the 16th and their content is now used directly in it. Gonnym (talk) 17:38, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Just from a template-editor standpoint, these are still potentially called by {{National rugby squad player}}, and if a squad page needs to have any of these values it will give an error. In other words, these are only half of the positions/templates in Special:PrefixIndex/Template:Rugby_squad_player and it could be problematic in the future. Primefac (talk) 18:27, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
    Ok, then it would probably be best to either
    • (a) restore the previous status so the same positions are used instead of duplicating the entire list over 2 or more templates,
    • (b) or maybe split out the position or name and position lines into a separate template and then use that in both this and in {{National rugby squad player}}.
    Both options would have the end-result of using the same data. Gonnym (talk) 19:41, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
    Dropping the #switch statement from {{Rugby squad player}} into its own template would actually simplify a few rugby templates, if I'm remembering correctly. At worst it gets rid of some janky #ifexist code in the nat squad template. Primefac (talk) 21:25, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
    That could work also. Gonnym (talk) 08:51, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:TR date by location

No transclusions, documentation, incoming links, categories. Obscure template name. Appears to be an abandoned experiment. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:37, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:TR female profile

No transclusions. External link template created in 2011, with no substantive edits since then. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:37, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:The Doors (album)

No transclusions. The more comprehensive {{The Doors songs}} works well for this navbox's purpose. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:33, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete per nom. A line from the template noted, padded out with unlinked tracks, all of which adds nothing to it's navigational use. Nigej (talk) 18:13, 27 January 2022 (UTC)


No transclusions. Redundant to {{Template link with bold}}, which accepts parameters now that it has been converted to use a module. Redirect or delete. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:15, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:WPAVIATION creator/Aircraft 2

The template was not used and there was no actual effort. Q28 (talk) 17:12, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete as unused. * Pppery * it has begun... 00:07, 28 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Comment what do you mean there's no "effort" ??? This is an article wizard. Did you notice that the preload template is different from the non-2 inputbox? -- (talk) 05:05, 28 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Question (provisional keep). What do you mean by "not used"? Do you just mean that no mainspace articles link to it? That is normal with wizard templates. Or do you mean that nobody ever runs the wizard? If so, what is your evidence for that? — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 10:27, 28 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Keep - frivolous nom of a functioning and used page creator template. - Ahunt (talk) 12:41, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:WP Bangladesh/WikiProject categories

Template subpage that is no longer used. Q28 (talk) 17:09, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:WP Bangladesh/Photo-message

Template subpage that is no longer used. Q28 (talk) 17:09, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Tourism in Bangladesh

No transclusions. This is an unfinished sidebar experiment; I had to remove a bunch of disastrous styling just to be able to see the template's content. It has a bunch of links to categories and templates interspersed with links to articles, some of which are not relevant. The linked articles have appropriate navboxes. I don't think there is a way forward for this sidebar. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:08, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Tourism in Yadgir district

No transclusions. The more comprehensive {{Yadgir district}} appears to work just fine. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:01, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete per nom. The "Parks, reserves and places of interest" section of the noted template is a better option. This one has only 4 actual links and there's no parent article on Tourism in Yadgir district. Nigej (talk) 18:08, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Track fallback

No transclusions, and inadequate documentation to explain the purpose of this template and how to use it. It appears to have been developed as an experiment to track usage or potential usage of wikidata information in templates, but it hasn't been deployed anywhere. If the creator wants to keep it around, I recommend userfying it, or transcluding it somewhere in order to show how it works. If it is kept, it should be documented better. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:01, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:USA National Football Team roster

No transclusions. This is single-article content that already exists in the relevant article. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:54, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete Per nom. Old roster last updated in 2016. Nigej (talk) 18:04, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Tunisian Ligue Professionnelle 1: Stadiums and location

Unused. Article content is at 2021–22 Tunisian Ligue Professionnelle 1#Stadiums and locations and at Tunisian Ligue Professionnelle 1#2021–22 season articipating Clubs. Nigej (talk) 16:49, 27 January 2022 (UTC)


No transclusions. These appear to have been created in 2018 for use with templates listed in {{Table cell templates/doc}}, but they are not used, and without any documentation or examples, it is not clear how they would be used. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:47, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Round8-MLSformat 2

Unused bracket template. Nigej (talk) 15:57, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Bracket templates

Three unused bracket templates created by the same user in March 2019. Nigej (talk) 15:36, 27 January 2022 (UTC)


Unused sidebar that was removed from the articles on 24 August 2011‎ with the comment "Removed navbox per comments at WP:AIR/PC#New sub-infobox idea in support of removing these types of templates". Nigej (talk) 15:16, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:The Beach Boys timeline event

"This template is used by The Beach Boys timeline article to implement the timeline table rows." However, the Beach Boys timeline article was deleted in 2019 and this template is now unused. Nigej (talk) 14:57, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Municipalities of individual Neuchâtel districts templates

In 2018 the district level of government was abolished, see: Canton of Neuchâtel#Districts. As a result, a new template {{Municipalities of the canton of Neuchâtel}} was created and is used instead. The 6 listed here are now unused and should be deleted. The articles for the former districts remain and a navbox {{Districts of the canton of Neuchâtel}} to jump between them.. Nigej (talk) 14:28, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

International women's cricket tours templates

These were created in 2020 and are all unused except that the England one is used at West Indies women's cricket team in England in 2020. They are clearly unfinished, the content mostly dying out in the early 2000s. However, the main issue is that they replicate the "Home series" sections of already well-used templates in a somewhat different style: {{Australia women's national cricket team}}, {{England women's cricket team}}, {{India women's national cricket team}}, {{Ireland women's cricket team}}, {{Netherlands women's national cricket team}}, {{New Zealand women's national cricket team}}, {{Pakistan women's national cricket team}}, {{South Africa women's national cricket team}}, {{Sri Lanka women's national cricket team}}, {{West Indies women's cricket team}}. Unless there is some plan to use them instead of the existing ones they should be deleted. Showing readers two templates containing the same content is just likely to confuse. Nigej (talk) 11:39, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Also, the way I would expect these templates to be used would be like the men's equivalents i.e. that on the tour articles (e.g. Pakistan women's cricket team in the West Indies in 2021), we'd add the "cricket tours of X" templates to the bottom, rather than the "X women's cricket team" templates. Not sure why the tour information is in the "X women's cricket team" template, as that just makes them way more bulky (especially if they were up-to-date). Joseph2302 (talk) 14:49, 28 January 2022 (UTC)


Subst and delete, or deprecate. Transcluded in five user (sub)pages and one template talk page. In other words, very seldom used. George Ho (talk) 09:58, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Subst and delete. No documentation, no categories. Unclear what it is supposed to do. I can't find a transclusion that looks reasonable at all, and most look terrible. This may have looked better in 2005, before changes were made to the template or to the MediaWiki software, but it looks terrible now. – Jonesey95 (talk) 20:14, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
  • comment doc added -- (talk) 04:58, 28 January 2022 (UTC)
    • Subst and delete this is a poorly styled inflexible template -- (talk) 04:58, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Top ten male doubles tennis players templates

This is a follow-up to a discussion at WT:TENNIS#"Top ten" lists and lists all the "top ten" navboxes for male doubles. There seemed to be general consensus there, that because they are poorly maintained they should be deleted. Personally I'm of the view that they have little encyclopedic value.

Template:Liberal conservatism

The articles listed in this template do not describe their subjects as being "liberal conservatism", rather, their listing here is totally about the opinion of the template creator, (Storm598), who is banned from AmPol, and has been shown to have a rather tenuous grasp and inaccurate understanding of the subject matter. Their opinions on these subjects are guided by Korean political blogs, and *not* by reliable sources. In point of fact, the inclusion of these articles in the subject area "liberal conservatism" is totally unsourced and misleading to our readers. This template should be deleted immediately, and the creator warned -- once again -- about editing in the area of political theory, of which they understand very little. (See this for the latest instance.) Beyond My Ken (talk) 02:59, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

  • You may see the existence of the template negatively, but don't attack it like this. Is there any evidence that I looked at and referred to South Korean sites when editing articles on European politics?--Storm598 (talk) 04:31, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
  • I don't think the template should be deleted. Liberal conservatism is a key theme of European conservatism, and European "liberal" are different in meaning from American "liberal". I don't think there's a problem if the template deals with European politics without editing related to politics from other countries such as the United States.--Storm598 (talk) 05:15, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Most of Europe's centre-right conservative parties are related to liberal conservatism. The CDU of Germany, the Republicans of France, and the Conservative Party of the UK are representative liberal conservative parties. (However, there is some controversy over whether the Conservative Party of the UK is completely liberal conservative.)--Storm598 (talk) 05:17, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
  • There are political and philosophical differences between "conservatism" and "liberal conservatism" in the traditional sense. In general, conservatism was an ideology centered on aristocrats and rejected the value of classical liberalism. However, liberal conservatism embraces the elements of classical liberalism and advocates more common class and bourgeois values. In modern times, "liberal conservatism" is mainly related to the centre-right forces in Europe and differs greatly from far-right populist conservatism or traditional conservatism. I think the template is necessary.--Storm598 (talk) 07:02, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
  • The term liberal in the template is liberal in the context of international politics, not liberal in the context of U.S. politics. For example, in German Gpedia, the category "liberalism" is used in Thatcherism articles.# # United States is not the standard of all worlds. In particular, in Europe, where the socialist tradition is strong, "liberal conservatism" represents the right-center political force and is opposed to the left-center political force called "social democracy." In Europe, "liberal" is used in an anti-socialist and classical sense. In the term "Liberal conservatism", "liberal" has at least no room for misunderstanding for Europeans, Australian, Japanese and Latin Americans.--Storm598 (talk) 09:27, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
  • A number of errors I made when editing American political articles come from here. The liberal conservative template has nothing to do with U.S. politics.--Storm598 (talk) 09:30, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Um... You're right. But there's also WP:BLUE. It is so natural that Konrad Adenauer or Angela Merkel are liberal conservatives that there is no need to mention them in the article. --Storm598 (talk) 12:04, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Paralympic Games Great Britain wheelchair rugby squad templates

These squad navboxes have the British Paralympic Games Wheelchair rugby squad from 1996 to date. They are all used at Great Britain national wheelchair rugby team and were being used there as article content, hence their unusual position in the article. This is not allowed per WP:NAVBOX "Do not rely solely on navboxes for links to articles highly relevant to a particular article. Navboxes are not displayed on the mobile website for Gpedia, which accounts for around half of readers." I have extracted the content and added it to the article. I recommend that we delete the templates. They are used in a number of player articles: 0,0,0,5,6,1,3 respectively. However I'm not convinced they are useful for navigation there, they only provide navigation between players and to the Great Britain national wheelchair rugby team article.

Template:Australian party style

The above templates hold parallel lists to what is held in Module:Political party. This is something that should be avoided as the links will eventually (if not already) be out of sync with different short names and colors, or with names appearing in one list but not in the other.

Most usages come from a small number of templates, which makes the conversion relatively easy once the missing data is added to the module. The remaining usages can be handled by AWB or bot depending on the amount left.

Template:Australian politics/party colours is used in:

  • Question. Has there been some sort of discussion somewhere around merging all national party colour templates into a single one? What is the benefit of such a thing? At the moment, as a user, the main change I can see is that people would need to enter the full name of a political party at every instance rather than something shorter. As such, and subject to a fuller discussion (which may already have taken place), I would say keep for now. Frickeg (talk) 21:16, 12 January 2022 (UTC)
    Here is the original discussion, and you can find many other follow up discussions with other country-specific templates folded in. As it stands there are only 2 templates yet to be merged and not because they are special, but because they needed to be untangled first. What is the benefit? I'm pretty sure I wrote that in the first two sentences. Re-read that. Also, your understanding of how the above templates work is flawed - At the moment, as a user, the main change I can see is that people would need to enter the full name of a political party at every instance rather than something shorter just isn't correct. Take for example "australian conservatives":
    The same amount of characters for the party (the standard template name is even shorter). Some will probably be using longer names as they conflict with other names, but most of the entries in the template aren't using short names at all. Gonnym (talk) 22:15, 12 January 2022 (UTC)
    Thank you very much for this detailed response. I apologise for not being clearer about my issue with shorter naming - I was thinking primarily in the very frequently used election result boxes, where I can currently enter "party = Labor" and would need to enter "party = Australian Labor Party" under this proposal. The vast majority of significant parties currently use substantially shorter names that would become much longer here. (If this proposal is successful, there may need to be some further discussion around implementation here, as there are some fiddly issues with some party names to be aware of.) My other concern is that it is currently quite useful to be able to refer to a list of Australian political parties covered by the template (as at Template:Australian party style), which is not remotely practical when the list is instead a list of all international parties, which are so enormous as to be largely useless. (Idea: might it be possible to change the lists at Module:Political party to be broken down by country rather than alphabetically?) Admittedly these are small concerns, but essentially I see this change as one where the key benefit is standardisation and the key downside is a marginally less useful system, and I see the latter as more significant here. I believe the only templates that would need to use the standardised template (i.e. could not use the Australian ones instead) are infoboxes, and the number of parties required by that template is substantially lower than the full list. Frickeg (talk) 23:12, 12 January 2022 (UTC)
    Module:Political party cannot be broken down by country instead of by letters as that is change is pretty significant and would require sub-templates to always need a country parameter which more often than not, is not needed. And even if it could, then you would need to use "Australia" and also "Labor" which would then be exactly the same here. Regarding your labor example, looking at Template:Australian politics/party colours, the amount of parties that have "labor" in their names is pretty significant. It would actually be better to use a longer name in this situation so other editors aren't confused. Gonnym (talk) 13:28, 20 January 2022 (UTC)
  • delete after replacing, which will take some effort. changing to the new system will result in more characters in many cases, and fewer in others, but overall, there is a benefit to having one system. we could create some slightly shorter names for "party color" using redirects if that's important. Frietjes (talk) 13:52, 20 January 2022 (UTC)
  • retain the proposal appears to replace one issue with more issues. The benefit is said to be a single system, reducing maintenance effort. The Australian lists have good visibility and any erroneous edits are quickly & easily corrected. The Australian list however is already lengthy. Dumping them into a single list for every country will significantly reduce that visibility. Further it imposes a barrier to an editor interested in commencing work with Australian politics - to find the correct party from a list that is already so long that it has to be broken up alphabetically will only become harder. One of the reasons the Monty Python "people's front of Judea" joke works is because it reflects life with numerous similarly named parties.
Is it possible to use a different approach to achieve a single system, either modifying these templates so that they populate the module, or alternatively take the values from the module? --Find bruce (talk) 21:16, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
Further it imposes a barrier to an editor interested in commencing work with Australian politics - to find the correct party from a list that is already so long that it has to be broken up alphabetically will only become harder. How will it create a barrier for someone? Currently an editor wishing to add a party in this system needs to edit two different pages and make sure they use the same name or things won't work correctly. In the module system they edit one single page. What does it matter to the editor that there are other sub-modules? If they want to add "New party" they go to /N and add it with a single line. It can't be anymore simple than that. If they find that difficult, they can post on the talk page and others do it for them. If they want to find the party, then do a ctrl+F and just search for it in the list. the proposal appears to replace one issue with more issues - You haven't actually found any issues with the module system.

  • Keep I've refrained from commenting so far in the hope that I could be convinced of the merits of the proposal, but I remain very much unconvinced. What is the problem that the module system is solving? It seems from the response to a question about its advantages, is that a duplicate system will eventually diverge, so deleting the originals will prevent this divergence? Is that really it or am I missing something here? As others have stated, the two Australian lists (colours and names) were watchlisted by several knowledgable editors, who could monitor for vandalism or unintentional errors. Now the alternative is to watch around 20 data pages which contain thousands more parties from all over the world – how is that an improvement? The rebuttal about the ease of finding and adding new parties to the list makes it sounds like a simple Ctrl+F, but splitting the lists alphabetically means that finding alternatives can involve searching several lists, particularly where a party has changed name over its history, or starts with "The". The short name issue raised above is slightly more inconvenient (to use the full name) for future templates, but this will still require tens of thousands of exisiting transclusions in 6,000 election result tables (of "Labor", "Liberal", "National", "Greens" and dozens of others) to be edited to replace the short name with the full name to allow this Module to do its work. Who is going to update all these? Yes, it could be done by a bot or AWB but why make thousands of edits to use a new system which seems more difficult to monitor and maintain, and where questions about the performance of this one-size-fits-all solution remain. By all means add all the Australian parties to the module, and if the system is as good as the proposers suggest then we'll all start using it, but at the moment all I'm seeing above is "one system = good" and there are no issues, or any suggested are ignored or dismissed. Deleting the old templates seems a very risky proposition when so much work needs to be done to shoehorn the module system over a existing system which works fine, even given the risk of eventual divergence. --Canley (talk) 06:19, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Each titleholders' template fails NENAN as the maximum number of links some of these have are four, but the rest have three. The footer is useless because all it does gives each titleholder more transclusions than it needs.

  • Delete all As noted, there only 3 or 4 genuine links, although padded out with many more (other years, places, etc.). WP:NAVBOX says that "The articles should refer to each other, to a reasonable extent." However the winners are not really connected and rarely (if ever) mention the other winners in the same year. The truth is that this sort of navbox is only created to be a decorative award banner. The articles generally have succession boxes too. eg Vania Fitryanti. All this clutters up the bottom of the articles and actually making navigation more difficult, users being completely bewildered by the sight of all these banners.

No transclusions, incoming links, categories, or documentation. Text is unreadably small, violating MOS:FONTSIZE. A better, possibly usable clickable imagemap exists at {{USA midsize imagemap with state names}}. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:06, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Editnotices/Page/Teen Titans Go! (season 1)

Whew. Okay! Last one. Merged to List of Teen Titans Go! episodes in 2014, target page already has this editnotice. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 16:30, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Editnotices/Page/Operation Guardian of the Walls

Article was merged to 2021 Israel–Palestine crisis in May. Target article already has an ARBPIA editnotice. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 16:22, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Wouldnt the restriction apply to editing the redirect? nableezy - 17:09, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
@Nableezy: I suppose it does, although I'm also not sure anyone's going to enforce that on like, a non-extendedconfirmed user adding {{r from subtopic}} or such. In this case and the Maarakeh massacre/bombing case, though, Aseleste blanked the sanction notice once the page became a redirect. If consensus here is to restore the sanction notices, I wouldn't object to that. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 17:14, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Editnotices/Page/Moesha (season 1)

Grapesoda22 BLAR'd these articles in September of 2018. The same editnotice appears on the target article. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 16:20, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Editnotices/Page/Maarakeh massacre

This and Template:Editnotices/Page/Maarakeh bombing were created a day apart amidst a movewar. Consensus settled on the latter article title, so this page is now redundant. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 16:17, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Editnotices/Page/List of terrorist incidents in April 2017

Both articles were merged to List of terrorist incidents in 2017 by TompaDompa a year and a half ago. If desired, one of these could be moved to become an editnotice for that page, but I don't think that's really necessary now. It's 2022[citation needed] and people are mostly done edit-warring over what was or wasn't terrorism a whole five years ago. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 16:12, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:UEFA Coefficient Rankings

No transclusions, documentation, or categories. Created in mid-2020 and not used. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:03, 25 January 2022 (UTC)


No transclusions. The content is used here, transcluded via another template. It appears that this template was copy-pasted into {{UKEU2016Result}}, so this might need a history merge. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:57, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete per nom. It looks to me like these were independently created and thus a history merge is not needed. * Pppery * it has begun... 02:38, 26 January 2022 (UTC)


Articles were BLAR'd by Dronebogus in November, and, as the content is discussed fairly comprehensively at the target article, the BLARs seem unlikely to be challenged. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 15:34, 25 January 2022 (UTC)


No transclusions, documentation, categories, or incoming links. The only edits to these templates were creation in 2009, followed by G6 speedy deletion templates that were removed by the pages' creator. Whatever these are or were, I do not think they have been useful for over a decade. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:33, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Editnotices/Page/Dandelion Program

Subject article was BLAR'd a few days ago by Firefly. Could be moved to Template:Editnotices/Page/DXC Technology to match the BLARing, but accessibility-related content takes up only a small portion of that article, so I don't think this editnotice would be justified there. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 15:19, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Oh wow, I assumed that editnotice was a boilerplate one applied to accessibility-related articles in general rather than anything specific. Either way I don't think we need one just for this article, so delete. firefly ( t · c ) 15:23, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
    • On further investigation I can see that it is indeed a boilerplate type notice - that'll teach me to look more closely! My !vote stands however - we don't need it for a redirect, and we don't need it at the target. firefly ( t · c ) 15:29, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Editnotices/Page/Bill O'Reilly

Created in 2011 to prevent people from merging Bill O'Reilly to William O'Reilly. Mooted after someone merged Bill O'Reilly to William O'Reilly. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 15:07, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Editnotices/Page/Battle of Changsha (fictional)

Battle of Changsha (fictional) was merged by Patar knight in June of 2020. Editnotice was blanked by Aseleste a year later, but should just be deleted. Meets the spirit of G8 but not quite the letter. -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 15:00, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Bundled another. Same story (except redirected at AfD except merged). -- Tamzin[cetacean needed] (she/they) 15:03, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Template:Month header

This header template is uniquely bad in that it is placed at the top of article pages and takes the whole width of the screen for really trivial links. There is a reason we use either sidebars or bottom navboxes and not this style. No need to replace it with anything as {{Months}} exists and is used. Gonnym (talk) 14:42, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Comment {{Months}} is quite different. Can't it just be turned into a navbox? Nigej (talk) 14:51, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Comment: I think that this template could be fixed by editing, specifically by turning it into a sidebar, something like {{Month header/sandbox}}. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:43, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
    It could, but in my opinion it's still of very little value and is already crowded by {{Calendar}}, images (September) and a possible infobox that was advocated by two users here. Seems way too much. Out of all mentioned, this one has all its links in the bottom navbox. Gonnym (talk) 16:46, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
    I don't object to deletion. I just thought I'd offer an alternative option. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:39, 26 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Delete as redundant. * Pppery * it has begun... 02:38, 26 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Comment it could be converted to a sidebar, since the month articles currently don't have infoboxes. Then both this and the calendar can be embedded (hook-ed in) into a new infobox when that gets rolled out -- (talk) 05:11, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

2017 Netball World Youth Cup templates

I have merged a series of 3 articles and 4 templates relating to the 2017 Netball World Youth Cup into a single article. We don't have any other articles in the series but this one was excessively detailed and complex. As a result of the merge the four single-use templates here are no longer used and can be deleted.

Miss Earth titleholders by year

These templates list the Miss Earth, Miss Air, Miss Water and Miss Fire for each year. These are actually the winner and 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the event, see List of Miss Earth titleholders#Runners-up. Each annual article lists these, eg Miss Earth 2001#Placements. The templates provide this information, a link to Miss Earth (the other 3 link there too) and links to the other templates in the list. So there are only a handful, at most, of actual links in these templates. These templates fail much of what makes a good WP:NAVBOX. The 4 titleholder articles rarely refer to the others and the only navigation actually required is from the titleholders to the appropriate Miss Earth article where (as noted) there is a list of the other titleholders. We already have {{Miss Earth}} and {{Miss Earth 2001 delegates}} etc. which provide useful navigation. This extra set ({{Miss Earth titleholders 2001}} etc.) means that we have two navboxes for the same pageant and provides nothing extra in the way of navigation. Nigej (talk) 11:56, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Delete. The fact that we have {{Miss Earth 2001 delegates}} and that any title holder (with a link) is listed there, means that this set is completely redundant. Gonnym (talk) 12:09, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
Added the base template to the list. --Gonnym (talk) 12:12, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
I too have no special affinity for these (despite having fixed them up in the past), however, I added the footer template to the list as it should be considered together with the rest of them. —Uzume (talk) 17:08, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
Comment: I always thought these would be better handled by moving to the WP:SBS/T succession boxes rather than having their own set of such things. Of course the same could be said for all the year to year navboxes in Category:Beauty pageant titleholder templates. —Uzume (talk) 17:18, 25 January 2022 (UTC)
