On this page, the deletion or merging of templates and modules, except as noted below, is discussed. To propose the renaming of a template or templates, use Wikipedia:Requested moves.

How to use this pageEdit

What not to propose for discussion hereEdit

The majority of deletion and merger proposals concerning pages in the template namespace and module namespace should be listed on this page. However, there are a few exceptions:

Stub templates
Stub templates and categories should be listed at Categories for discussion, as these templates are merely containers for their categories, unless the stub template does not come with a category and is being nominated by itself.
Userboxes
Userboxes should be listed at Miscellany for deletion, regardless of the namespace in which they reside.
Speedy deletion candidates
If the template clearly satisfies a criterion for speedy deletion, tag it with a speedy deletion template. For example, if you wrote the template and request its deletion, tag it with {{Db-author}}.
Policy or guideline templates
Templates that are associated with particular Wikipedia policies or guidelines, such as the speedy deletion templates, cannot be listed at TfD separately. They should be discussed on the talk page of the relevant guideline.
Template redirects
List at Redirects for discussion.

Reasons to delete a templateEdit

  1. The template violates some part of the template namespace guidelines, and can't be altered to be in compliance.
  2. The template is redundant to a better-designed template.
  3. The template is not used, either directly or by template substitution (the latter cannot be concluded from the absence of backlinks), and has no likelihood of being used.
  4. The template violates a policy such as Neutral point of view or Civility and it can't be fixed through normal editing.

Templates should not be nominated if the issue can be fixed by normal editing. Instead, you should edit the template to fix its problems. If the template is complex and you don't know how to fix it, WikiProject Templates may be able to help.

Templates for which none of these apply may be deleted by consensus here. If a template is being misused, consider clarifying its documentation to indicate the correct use, or informing those that misuse it, rather than nominating it for deletion. Initiate a discussion on the template talk page if the correct use itself is under debate.

Listing a templateEdit

To list a template for deletion or merging, follow this three-step process. The use of Twinkle (explained below) is strongly recommended, as it automates and simplifies these steps. Note that the "Template:" prefix should not be included anywhere when carrying out these steps (unless otherwise specified).

Step Instructions
I: Tag the template. Add one of the following codes to the top of the template page:

Note:

  • If the template nominated is inline, do not add a newline between the TfD notice and the code of the template.
  • If the template to be nominated for deletion is protected, make a request for the TfD tag to be added, by posting on the template's talk page and using the {{editprotected}} template to catch the attention of administrators or Template editors.
  • For templates designed to be substituted, add <noinclude>...</noinclude> around the TfD notice to prevent it from being substituted alongside the template.
  • Do not mark the edit as minor.
  • Use an edit summary like
    Nominated for deletion; see [[Wikipedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]]
    or
    Nominated for merging; see [[Wikipedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]].
  • Before saving your edit, preview your edit to ensure the Tfd message is displayed properly.

Multiple templates: If you are nominating multiple related templates, choose a meaningful title for the discussion (like "American films by decade templates"). Tag every template with {{subst:Tfd|heading=discussion title}} or {{subst:Tfm|name of other template|heading=discussion title}} instead of the versions given above, replacing discussion title with the title you chose (but still not changing the PAGENAME code).

Related categories: If including template-populated tracking categories in the TfD nomination, add {{Catfd|template name}} to the top of any categories that would be deleted as a result of the TfD, this time replacing template name with the name of the template being nominated. (If you instead chose a meaningful title for a multiple nomination, use {{Catfd|header=title of nomination}} instead.)

TemplateStyles pages: The above templates will not work on TemplateStyles pages. Instead, add a CSS comment to the top of the page:

/* This template is being discussed in accordance with Wikipedia's deletion policy. Help reach a consensus at its entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2022_August_15#Template:template_name.css */
II: List the template at TfD. Follow this link to edit today's TfD log.

Add this text to the top of the list:

  • For deletion: {{subst:Tfd2|template name|text=Why you think the template should be deleted. ~~~~}}
  • For merging: {{subst:Tfm2|template name|other template's name|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

If the template has had previous TfDs, you can add {{Oldtfdlist|previous TfD without brackets|result of previous TfD}} directly after the Tfd2/Catfd2 template.

Use an edit summary such as
Adding [[Template:template name]].

Multiple templates: If this is a deletion proposal involving multiple templates, use the following:

{{subst:Tfd2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be deleted. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ). Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

If this is a merger proposal involving more than two templates, use the following:

{{subst:Tfm2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|with=main template (optional)|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ), plus one more in |with=. |with= does not need to be used, but should be the template that you want the other templates to be merged into. Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

Related categories: If this is a deletion proposal involving a template and a category populated solely by templates, add this code after the Tfd2 template but before the text of your rationale:

{{subst:Catfd2|category name}}
III: Notify users. Please notify the creator of the template nominated (as well as the creator of the target template, if proposing a merger). It is helpful to also notify the main contributors of the template that you are nominating. To find them, look in the page history or talk page of the template. Then, add one of the following:

to the talk pages of the template creator (and the creator of the other template for a merger) and the talk pages of the main contributors. It is also helpful to make any interested WikiProjects aware of the discussion. To do that, make sure the template's talk page is tagged with the banners of any relevant WikiProjects; please consider notifying any of them that do not use Article alerts.

Multiple templates: There is no template for notifying an editor about a multiple-template nomination: please write a personal message in these cases.

Consider adding any templates you nominate for TfD to your watchlist. This will help ensure that the TfD tag is not removed.

After nominating: Notify interested projects and editorsEdit

While it is sufficient to list a template for discussion at TfD (see above), nominators and others sometimes want to attract more attention from and participation by informed editors. All such efforts must comply with Wikipedia's guideline against biased canvassing.

To encourage participation by less experienced editors, please avoid Wikipedia-specific abbreviations in the messages you leave about the discussion, link to any relevant policies or guidelines, and link to the TfD discussion page itself. If you are recommending that a template be speedily deleted, please give the criterion that it meets.

Notifying related WikiProjectsEdit

WikiProjects are groups of editors that are interested in a particular subject or type of editing. If the article is within the scope of one or more WikiProjects, they may welcome a brief, neutral note on their project's talk page(s) about the TfD. You can use {{Tfdnotice}} for this.

Tagging the nominated template's talk page with a relevant Wikiproject's banner will result in the template being listed in that project's Article Alerts automatically, if they subscribe to the system. For instance, tagging a template with {{WikiProject Physics}} will list the discussion in Wikipedia:WikiProject Physics/Article alerts.

Notifying substantial contributors to the templateEdit

While not required, it is generally considered courteous to notify the good-faith creator and any main contributors of the template and its talkpage that you are nominating for discussion. To find the creator and main contributors, look in the page history or talk page.

At this point, you've done all you need to do as nominator. Sometime after seven days have passed, someone else will either close the discussion or, where needed, "relist" it for another seven days of discussion. (That "someone" may not be you, the nominator.)

Once you have submitted a template here, no further action is necessary on your part. If the nomination is successful it will be added to the Holding Cell until the change is implemented. There is no requirement for nominators to be part of the implementation process, but they are allowed to if they so wish.

Also, consider adding any templates you nominate to your watchlist. This will help ensure that your nomination tag is not mistakenly or deliberately removed.

TwinkleEdit

Twinkle is a convenient tool that can perform many of the posting and notification functions automatically, with fewer errors and missed steps than manual editing. Twinkle does not notify WikiProjects, although many of them have automatic alerts. It is helpful to notify any interested WikiProjects that don't receive alerts, but this has to be done manually.

DiscussionEdit

Anyone can join the discussion, but please understand the deletion policy and explain your reasoning.

People will sometimes also recommend subst or subst and delete and similar. This means the template text should be "merged" into the articles that use it. Depending on the content, the template page may then be deleted; if preserving the edit history for attribution is desirable, it may be history-merged with the target article or moved to mainspace and redirected.

Templates are rarely orphaned—that is, removed from pages that transclude them—before the discussion is closed. A list of open discussions eligible for closure can be found at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Old unclosed discussions.

Closing discussionEdit

Administrators should read the closing instructions before closing a nomination. Note that WP:XFDcloser semi-automates this process and ensures all of the appropriate steps are taken.

Current discussionsEdit

August 15Edit

Template:Colored listEdit

Useless template that violates MOS:COLOR and is used only in College of Science, University of Tehran, Housing Foundation of Islamic Revolution, User:Eddy UwU/sandbox, Template:HTML lists, and Template:Medical cases chart/doc. –LaundryPizza03 (d) 02:22, 15 August 2022 (UTC)

August 14Edit

Template:United States federal executive ordersEdit

Propose merging Template:United States federal executive orders with Template:United States federal executive actions.
Both templates contain the same links for the respective from President McKinley to Biden, "List of executive actions by" and then the name of the respective President. There are no articles for each president just for their executive orders. Thus, having the executive orders template is redundant in comparison to the action navbox. We have two navboxes for one purpose. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 21:10, 14 August 2022 (UTC)

Template:Infobox Negro League franchiseEdit

Propose merging Template:Infobox Negro League franchise with Template:Infobox baseball team.
Renomination after edits for {{Infobox baseball team}} have been restored. –Aidan721 (talk) 18:44, 6 August 2022 (UTC)

Comment - Do we have an infobox template for "Major League Baseball"? GoodDay (talk) 18:58, 6 August 2022 (UTC)
  • Merge per nom. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:08, 6 August 2022 (UTC)
  • Repeat of comment Thank you for pinging me. At the previous TfD I asked Consistency is fine, but why merge into Template:Infobox baseball team and not Template:Infobox MLB? Curious about that rationale. I still would prefer merging into the MLB infobox rather than the proposed baseball team infobox. Rgrds. --Bison X (talk) 20:00, 6 August 2022 (UTC)
    Currently, only current MLB teams use {{Infobox MLB}}, so former MLB teams like Montreal Expos and Brooklyn Dodgers use {{Infobox baseball team}}. I think further down the road the two templates could and should align closer, but right now that's how the two are used. So even if we were to grant Negro league teams "Major league" status, they would still resort to using {{Infobox baseball team}} per above reasoning for now. –Aidan721 (talk) 23:49, 11 August 2022 (UTC)
  • Oppose The Negro Leagues are different from any other baseball league as are their teams. Hence why there is a separate box for MLB teams and one for the Negro Leagues. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 21:27, 6 August 2022 (UTC)
    Actually, it's just an infobox template & no reader would know any difference. It's just a matter of formatting & appropriate parameters can be adjusted to handle a Negro league franchise. In my case, I just prefer the formatting of the MLB infobox over the proposed baseball team infobox. Rgrds. --Bison X (talk) 02:04, 7 August 2022 (UTC)

Violates Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Wikidata Phase 2 and inappropriately stores article text in a template. Both of these problems appear to be inherent to the way the template is designed and not fixable. * Pppery * it has begun... 14:38, 13 August 2022 (UTC)

The problem is maintenance. When you look at the article of Rudersdorf, you will see the mayor is Franz Eduard Tauss. But the article of de:Rudersdorf and the Website of Rudersdorf [1] say that Manuel Weber is mayor (german: "Bürgermeister"). The module Module:Austria should become a module for all this austrian stuff, to keep all austrian articles up to date. Not only in en:WP but in all foreign language WPs. --Supertona (talk) 14:46, 14 August 2022 (UTC)

Template:Heads of government of monarchiesEdit

Contravenes all 5 principles of Wikipedia:Categories, lists, and navigation templates#Navigation templates: this is not a coherent topic, in that reliable sources do not usually group these people into a category; the subject of the template is not mentioned in the articles; the articles do not frequently refer to each other; there is no article on the topic (nor should there be); and editors would not usually link these topics in a see also section. DrKay (talk) 13:31, 11 August 2022 (UTC)

I really do not think it will work, please delete per request as soon as possible. I only created these templates as a sort of an experiment to see if the template is useful or not because if there are templates dedicated to monarchs, why not make one for heads of government of monarchies.

  • Keep, Template:INFOBOX INDCONST is used to substitute the full template of Template:Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency while using an AWB or during manual edit. Substituting Template:Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency gives unnecessary extra bits thats need to be cleaned up. --Venkat TL (talk) 06:13, 3 August 2022 (UTC)
Delete. If the base template has an issue, fix it. If the copy/paste in the documenation of the base template has an issue, fix it. What not to do is create a template with an unclear name with no documentation. Gonnym (talk) 13:21, 3 August 2022 (UTC)
Special:Diff/1102475255 shows the result of {{subst:Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency}}. Now compare this with Special:Diff/1102475526 when you use {{subst:INFOBOX INDCONST}}. @Gonnym @WikiCleanerMan, @MPGuy2824, I dont know how to fix it. I am not sure if this is even fixable. I just want to get the work done and hence this came as an obvious solution till someone finds a better one. I request the admin to not delete this until a viable alternative to do the same thing is made available. I think this deletion nomination is going overboard and deleting stuff that are useful and actively being used without any clear policy basis for deletion. Venkat TL (talk) 07:38, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
Venkat, see Special:Diff/1102478636 which shows the results of {{subst:Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency/sandbox}}. Please test it out yourself. I'll test it out more tomorrow and if seems fine, I'll make the same changes on Template:Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency. The problems was that the Template wasn't designed to be substituted. -MPGuy2824 (talk) 08:16, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
Indeed I figured out the "Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency" was not made for substitution, which is why I made one for doing just that. The infobox is used on 5,000+ pages, so we need to be careful about editing the infobox template. This deletion of Template:INFOBOX INDCONST is unnecessarily disruptive. @MPGuy2824 The comparison is at Special:Diff/1102475526/1102503945, I think the comments should be substituted, they help the editors. Venkat TL (talk) 11:30, 5 August 2022 (UTC)
Some things don't need fixes. Some things don't need to exist. Not every template needs to have a subst version. Just use the infobox like it should. Gonnym (talk) 12:49, 6 August 2022 (UTC)
According to what Wikipedia policy? Venkat TL (talk) 12:52, 6 August 2022 (UTC)
The substitution template saves time in searching and saves 7-8 clicks needed to copy paste, allows AWB usage too. These are significant benefits in keeping this template. Venkat TL (talk) 08:34, 9 August 2022 (UTC)

Unused navbox with no mainspace article for the topic. There is no Cresta series that I could find that matches with the games listed. Other than the similarity of the titles. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 15:48, 9 August 2022 (UTC)

Template:Editnotices/Page/Michael JacksonEdit

This template has not been edited since 2010. It was probably necessary at the time, but I don't think it is relevant anymore. Interstellarity (talk) 12:20, 24 July 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete per nomination. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 23:23, 24 July 2022 (UTC)
  • Keep Michael Jackson articles have remained controversial. The WP:GS/MJ are still in place, and like last month or so somebody got into trouble on ANI regarding Jackson-related edits. — Ceso femmuin mbolgaig mbung, mellohi! (投稿) 17:39, 26 July 2022 (UTC)

  • Isn't it normal to make the pagenotice be the GS notice ({{Gs/editnotice}})? It seems like it should be the GS notice. SWinxy (talk) 23:48, 10 August 2022 (UTC)
