Suggested moveEdit

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was no consensus. This editor seems to have gone inactive and hasn't responded to queries on his or her talk page. Absent interest on the move either way, he or she should feel free to carry it out, as long as he or she sees to the relevant cleanup. --BDD (talk) 17:52, 5 March 2013 (UTC) (non-admin closure)

Template:Canada-athletics-bio-stubTemplate:Canada-trackandfield-bio-stub – In Canadian English "athletics" means all sports, as exemplified by University athletics departments (ie. UBC Thunderbirds), which handle all sports and various athletics clubs (such as the Montreal AAA which handle all sports. The term in Canada is "track and field", so the stubtype should match Canadian English WP:ENGVAR ; As currently named, the stubtype in Canadian English is identical in meaning to {{Canada-sport-bio-stub}}, but is is supposed to be for track and field. Relisted. BDD (talk) 22:38, 20 February 2013 (UTC) -- 76.65.128.43 (talk) 06:27, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

Any additional comments:
  • This is a bit tricky. I'm supportive of the overall goal here, but we probably ultimately want {{Canada-athletics-bio-stub}} to redirect to {{Canada-sport-bio-stub}}, and the latter is used in almost 700 articles. Perhaps we could temporarily deprecate Canada-athletics until its current uses are cleaned up, and then redirect it to Canada-trackandfield? On the other hand, compare to {{US-athletics-bio-stub}}. Perhaps it would be better to just leave this alone. --BDD (talk) 18:03, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
