November 7Edit

Template:Fossils (band)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. (non-admin closure) Nihlus 00:05, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

Only two independent articles (one for the band and one for its lead singer), which already link to and from each other. Mostly, a discography page in a navbox without navigational benefit. StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 21:59, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Delete. All the albums redirect to the band. Useless. --woodensuperman 10:28, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

Back in 2006 it might have been useful, but it's 2017 now. Someone at the talk page said it best: "This warning is as useful as a warning that says "there are images on this page; you need support for rendering to view images otherwise you will see empty boxes".". Timmyshin (talk) 20:24, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

  • delete. I an sure this was discussed somewhere recently on WP but I can’t recall where. It’s hard to think now who would be reading WP on a platform that does not support Chinese automatically: all modern consumer mobile and desktop OSes support Chinese and have done for a decade or so. Articles with Chinese text normally have a link such as that provided by {{zh}}, e.g. Chinese: 中国; that is enough to help readers utterly unfamiliar with the language.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 08:17, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
    • I found a discussion: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_China/Archive_28#Little_boxes.2C_little_boxes. BTW I think the Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Arabic and many other such templates should also go. Perhaps texts like Burmese can stay a little longer. Timmyshin (talk) 12:11, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
      They were not nominated at the same time, so I would say let this discussion run its course, then the points raised in this discussion will help with any discussion concerning them.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 12:29, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
  • delete, doesn't add much value and contributes to clutter at the top of the article. Frietjes (talk) 13:25, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
  • delete – no longer useful, and the articles that use it are typically already cluttered with boxes. Kanguole 16:58, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete Too much clutter for a warning that will only be an issue for a very small fraction of readers. Spellcast (talk) 10:25, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete Smacks of almost a weird foreign bias in addition. 2610:130:104:900:7998:98C1:2C2D:18E0 (talk) 15:24, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
    • That doesn't make any sense. Can you explain your reasoning? 108.220.198.237 (talk) 00:26, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
      • I think they mean that it suggests that the reader is someone who doesn't regularly use, read, or otherwise work with Chinese text.  — Mr. Guye (talk) (contribs)  19:00, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete Look, it's 2017. It just isn't useful. It's a problem for very little, if any, portion of Wikipedia users, and it also says 'you may see empty boxes', which is never true. 82.42.112.140 (talk) 07:21, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete. The disclaimer is more unnecessary clutter than something of value, because those without "proper rendering support" would be in a exceedingly small group. And I can't imagine that there would be a lot of confusion of what kind of text would generally be in Chinese-related articles/sections with some common sense, certainly not enough to clutter articles with this disclaimer box. --Cold Season (talk) 17:00, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete Unnecessary disclaimer. Delete it. - Bokmanrocks01 (talk) 04:13, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete per nom. There was a discussion where the consensus was it's no longer useful, and I've removed the template from dozens of pages. -Zanhe (talk) 05:28, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete Robust Unicode support is pervasive in 2017. Brandon (talk) 19:20, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete Unnecessay in 2017 --Eflyjason (talk) 08:49, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete Disclaimer no longer necessary with robust Chinese text support on all modern computing platforms. Horserice (talk) 08:26, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete No longer needed as it is outdated. Ernestchuajiasheng (talk) 12:23, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

Quebec school board election resultsEdit

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. (non-admin closure) Nihlus 00:07, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

School board elections are not encyclopedically notable in their own right; standalone articles about many of these elections were deleted a few years ago and aren't coming back. And since a school board trustee would not be considered notable for that fact in and of itself either, the only way anybody named in these templates would ever have an article to use them on is if they subsequently went on to hold a more notable office, such as on Montreal City Council, in the National Assembly of Quebec or in the House of Commons of Canada — and even for the few who did, there's no value in retaining early school board election results as part of their "electoral history" — we're only interested in their electoral history as it pertains to those notable offices, not as it pertains to school board elections that we're not maintaining articles about. Bearcat (talk) 19:39, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

I disagree with the argument that there's no value in retaining school board election results in the electoral history of notable individuals (this should perhaps be the subject of another discussion), but I agree there's no point in keeping these templates. CJCurrie (talk) 03:13, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
delete. A strange way to present the information in them. If a noteworthy aspect of a person’s biography it should be worked into the text where its relevance will be clearer from the context, not presented in a table with only one entry.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 13:51, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

unused and out-of-date, could be used in Eastern Province Kings, but in that case one could include it in the article directly. Frietjes (talk) 18:26, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

No notable releases. Only links (some) band members. --woodensuperman 14:47, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Delete - Not enough entries to warrant a navigation template (band with no notable releases currently.) If anything, I see this trending downward too, as the only two band members with articles appears to be minimally sourced WP:BLP stubs. Sergecross73 msg me 18:55, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
