More parametersEdit

I suggest adding a new parameter called "flag(s)", "prayer(s)" and '"ideology" ( ideologies). Italawar (talk) 13:45, 20 December 2019 (UTC)

@Italawar: Can you provide an examples of where these would be useful? Ergo Sum 05:29, 4 January 2020 (UTC)
@Ergo Sum: I think the feature would be handy in regard to pages such as Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Vishva Hindu Parishad and Momentum (organisation) etc. Italawar (talk) 08:19, 4 January 2020 (UTC)
Ideology seems to already be covered by purpose. The other two seem to marginal to be included in the infobox. Ergo Sum 15:47, 4 January 2020 (UTC)
Flag would seem to be covered by logo or image. Prayers will only be relevant for a tiny number of religious organizations (certainly not Momentum!) and is not important enough even to be mentioned in the text of the other two examples you mention, so I don't see how they could be justified for an infobox – unless you mean something different from what I think you mean.

@Ergo Sum and Hairy Dude: Consider the difference between Ideology and Purpose, Flag and Logo and Flag and Image. Italawar (talk) 08:14, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

For ideology, just use the "war faction" infobox, which has it. – Illegitimate Barrister (talkcontribs), 02:17, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

  Not done for now: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit template-protected}} template. You'll need to announce your discussion to the interested projects, WT:WikiProject Organizations and WT:WikiProject Infoboxes. Cabayi (talk) 11:54, 3 January 2020 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 12 April 2020Edit

Please add the following code below the redirect:

{{Redirect category shell|
{{R from move}}
{{R from modification}}
}}

The redirect is from a move, and an alternative capitalization, but {{R from other capitalization}} is for mainspace redirects only, so {{R from modification}} must be used instead. GeoffreyT2000 (talk) 19:18, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

New parametersEdit

Hi. In order to implement the merge of {{Infobox motorcycle club}} to {{Infobox organization}} as decided by this TFD, I've added two parameters to the sandbox: "Marque" and "Activities". If there are no objections, I plan to add them to the main {{Infobox organization}} in 3 or more days; if there is an objection, I will wait until there is a consensus. (A link here will be posted to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Organizations and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Infoboxes). Cheers, Mdaniels5757 (talk) 14:04, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

What is provided by these parameters that is not already available? Nikkimaria (talk) 15:58, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
Nikkimaria, "activities" is for the particular activities performed by the group (distinct from "purpose"), "marque" is a distinguishing feature. Both are required to implement the TfD. Mdaniels5757 (talk) 01:00, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
How is "activities" distinct from "purpose"? What do you mean by "distinguishing feature"? Nikkimaria (talk) 02:40, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
Nikkimaria, Sorry. Since I'm clearly not explaining things well, here are examples for activities/purpose and for marque. Best, Mdaniels5757 (talk) 17:16, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
The latter seems particularly not useful. The former could be, although it will need clear documentation to distinguish from not only "purpose" but also products and services. Nikkimaria (talk) 20:19, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
