Removing Deep Blue Sea (hat) from this template
I've removed the Deep Blue Sea listing within the template. My understanding is that this template exists to identify generic styles (eg, Picture hat, Dolly Varden, Kepi, and so on) not one-off designs. If we allow one 'named' creation in we'll have to allow others in and that will make the template unmanageable. Libby norman (talk) 10:28, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
I suggest that this template needs reorganising as it is getting a little overwhelmingly list-y. There are also some strange entries, such as Haredi burqa sect, which appear only tenuously related, and I'm not sure all the entries under Wrapped are technically wrapped - I would not consider a hood wrapped, for example.
I'm thinking maybe something along these lines:
- Basic types (Boater, Bowler, Top Hat, Turban, Conical Asian hat, etc)
- Ethnographic headgear
- Religious headgear
- Historical headgear (Poke bonnet, Fontange, etc.)
Homburg (Anthony Eden hat)
This template was edited by PPEMES with the edit summary Hardly proportionate to include one individual's hat, style and biography in such a section in such a template - also misleading, since it can give the impression that it is something else than a homburg hat
I've reverted this; not only is it pointy, it misunderstands the purpose of having a navigation template.
First, even if you still don't understand (despite being told by numerous people in your failed merge proposal and your failed move request) that your premise is wrong, you should accept the consensus on the matter and drop the stick.
Second (just to be clear) the purpose of a template is to gather up articles on a common subject, to make them easily available for the reader; so putting the Anthony Eden hat in parenthesis after Homburg (or Flat cap with Coppola cap, or Side cap with Titovka, or Baseball cap with Trucker cap, even though they are 'the same hat') is perfectly appropriate; in fact, using parentheses is precisely what we should do in such cases. So I suggest you let it go, or risk censure for disruptive editing. Swanny18 (talk) 22:41, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
- Here's how the template looked before I tried to improve it to the best of my understanding: 1. Not all of the subsequent improvements are to my credit. Of those that are, I don't expect you to commend me about it. But before you go about miscrediting the user behind upon criticism of a detail of the final result, have you considered WP:AGF? As for the very hat, obviously I fail to understand your arguments that it regards a distinctively separate hat altogether - how does it differ from a black felt homburg hat? - but that's alright. You have it your way, I don't mind. PPEMES (talk) 02:24, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
- Already explained ad nauseam. See closed discussions at Talk:Anthony Eden hat#Merge, again, Talk:Anthony Eden hat#Requested move 1 January 2019, and the current one at User talk:PPEMES#Hats and headgear. No need to discuss this over again at every forum available. Mathglot (talk) 04:09, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
