Template:Category in year[edit]

The following discussion is an archived debate of the proposed deletion of the template below. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page (such as the template's talk page or in a deletion review).

The result of the discussion was relisted here. (non-admin closure) ~ RobTalk 01:22, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Propose merging Template:Category in year with Template:Year by category.
As stated by the creator, this is just a fork of Template:Year by category with the major difference that the categories' generic name is prepended as in Category:Animals described in 2005 rather than appended as in Category:2005 in the United States. This subtle variation should be rather easy to incorporate into Template:Year by category, though the |cat= parameter would need to be renamed to |suffix= or |post=, to accommodate a new |prefix= or |pre= parameter.

  • Oppose – Looks like an intellectually interesting exercise but I don't see any benefit of this change. How would we justify the massive effort of converting all existing usage to the new proposed syntax? — JFG talk 05:31, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
  • rewrite as a wrapper. Frietjes (talk) 19:00, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

This template was created after a discussion at Template_talk:INRConvert#New_variant_based_on_this_template about a year ago. In that year it has never been used. All it does is remove commas from a number and put them back in the correct places. I doubt that it will ever be useful. Jimp 16:36, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was no consensus. Original rationale seems to have been resolved, so I'm not relisting, but WilliamJE is welcome to start another discussion if they still believe this should be deleted. (non-admin closure) ~ RobTalk 01:05, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

NAVBOX with just two links. ...William, is the complaint department really on the roof? 16:16, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

  • Oppose - Navbox now has sufficient amount of links.--Wolbo (talk) 00:09, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

This template is not ready for this namespace; it should either go in the draft namespace or be deleted entirely. I would favour the latter as there are hardly any reliable sources to prove that the person being described here is of notable for inclusion in Wikipedia. <<< SOME GADGET GEEK >>> (talk) 14:12, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

  • Delete. This is article content, so does not belong in template space at all. It might form part of an article on this young man, but he does not appear to be notable enough for his own article. --NSH002 (talk) 22:08, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was replace and delete as suggested in nom. It's kind of a merge, kinda not. (non-admin closure) ~ RobTalk 01:07, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Propose merging Template:Proposed provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo with Template:Provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
No longer just "proposed provinces", these are covered now in Template:Provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Note that "merge" in this case means to replace all template transclusions and delete the out-dated and redundant template. PanchoS (talk) 11:30, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

  • Support - no need for the "proposed" template any longer. Aymatth2 (talk) 11:33, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Template:International Marxist Tendency[edit]

The following discussion is an archived debate of the proposed deletion of the template below. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page (such as the template's talk page or in a deletion review).

The result of the discussion was delete as unopposed. WP:REFUND applies. (non-admin closure) ~ RobTalk 00:58, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Not a useful navigation template. Only transcluded on four pages. The implied article series does not exist. Largely redundant with the more general and more useful {{Trotskyism}}, and with Category:International Marxist Tendency. Seemingly little scope for converting into a more specific navbox. Cmeiqnj (talk) 18:04, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion and clearer consensus.

Per past precedent (as shown here), these templates are unneeded as they pollute the What Links Here function and are better handled by categories. Dough4872 01:33, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Per rationale of WP:NENAN, there just isn't enough here to justify a navbox for this individual. There's little content and what there is already links to and from each other; therefore, making this template no improvement over current navigational capabilities.
