Template talk:Al-Qaeda and direct affiliates
|WikiProject Terrorism||(Rated Template-class)|
I would argue that the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group and East Turkestan Movement are supporters of Al-Qaeda at best. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:11, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
Purpose of this template?
This template is rife with problems. What differentiates a "major supporter" from a "supporter?" How does a nation make the list of "opposers?" Too many of the names mentioned cannot be possibly verified. I propose a deletion/merge of this template to Template:Al-Qaeda. Any franchises can be placed on that one.--RDavi404 (talk) 18:07, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
Name of template
"Franchises"? What, is al-Qaeda suddenly in the restaurant business? The word "franchise" has such a strong connection to commercial activities that it is inappropriate for this infobox. These organisations aren't selling anything but jihad. The name of this template should be changed. I propose "Direct affiliates of al-Qaeda", but if others have their own ideas, feel free to propose them below. ~~ Lothar von Richthofen (talk) 13:02, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
- Seeing as how the original creator of the template was indefinitely blocked for incompetence, including an exceedingly poor grasp of the English language, I have gone ahead and moved it myself. If anyone objects, please provide substantial reasoning. ~~ Lothar von Richthofen (talk) 15:38, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
