User:TenPoundHammer: Didn't you notice my edit to WP:ATA? KMF (talk) 13:48, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
@KATMAKROFAN: Whatever edit you are referring to was not recent enough. Could you provide a diff please? Steel1943 (talk) 15:07, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
I added "Unused template" as an argument to avoid. KMF (talk) 15:19, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
(For those trying to follow what is being referred, apparently, it's at WP:ORPHS. Steel1943 (talk) 20:10, 2 October 2017 (UTC))
From what I read there WP:ORPHS is mainly meant to apply to articles and not templates. Also unused templates are listed as a valid reason for deletion under item number 3- as long as the template isn't being used either directly or via substitution. Sakura Cartelet Talk 02:31, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete. Accounts with such issues would just be reported to a board such as WP:AIV and have appropriate action taken towards it. Also, other tags exist to place in user pages in regards to accounts that are blocked due to editing issues such as this. That, and if the account is not unblocked, they could just remove this tag whenever they want, rendering the tag useless. That, and Wikipedia:Imposter account currently redirects to a section on s pagr referring to sockpuppetry; so, with that rationale, this template is essentially redundant to {{Sockpuppet}}.

All links to the template from the "Template:" namespace stem from pages with titles ending in "/doc". Steel1943 (talk) 05:41, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
Do you mean no transclusions? Hyacinth (talk) 19:02, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
No, I meant links. But, the template does also have no transclusions. Steel1943 (talk) 01:17, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
Why do links to a category affect whether the category should be deleted or kept when it is intended for transclusion? Hyacinth (talk) 19:36, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

Unused. Just type ― if you need it. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 04:30, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

It could substitute itself every time it was transcluded and be a quick substitute (which would mean there would be no links to it). Or every time a Wikipedian needs to type a horbar you could pick me up and we could go over to their place and show them which key on their keyboard is &#x2015;. Hyacinth (talk) 19:21, 29 September 2017 (UTC) Hyacinth (talk) 19:29, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
It can't be used right now: {{horbar}}. Hyacinth (talk) 19:40, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
  • delete as pointless. Easy to type — on my keyboard (option-shift-hyphen). I imagine few editors have problems doing so, given how often it is used in articles. It e.g. is available from the edittools, or you can just copy and paste it from somewhere. This is one of a number of little used templates created by this editor, who is now blocked so who we can’t ask about it, but I suspect they were imported from another wiki, where they are perhaps preferred. Here though there seems no need for it.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 19:36, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was merge to Template:Holiday. (non-admin closure) Winged Blades of GodricOn leave 13:44, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

Unused, no reason to have this since it's exactly the same as {{holiday}} Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 04:26, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep. This template contains more customizable parameters than Template:Holiday. If "keep" is not preferred, then weak merge into Template:Holiday. Steel1943 (talk) 05:57, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Merge or move to my userspace. I don't think "unused" applies to these types of templates, that are meant to be temporary. It's definitely not the same as {{holiday}}. You can try to put it together using {{holiday}}, and even if you manage to make it look and function the same, it's going to require so much coding that no one is going to remember what parameters to use, etc. That's the whole point of having a separate template. Think of it as a shorthand. Why is that wrong? I shouldn't have to remember all that code to get it to look like I want. Is there another reason why it should be deleted? Our we running out of disk space? All I know is that I use it, and I thought others might too (and they have). This template has been disputed before, including attempts to make it use {{holiday}} at the expense of breaking the intended functionality. Clearly the template-space folks don't like it, and that's OK. I'm not throwing a fit, I promise, I just don't understand the concern. I'm OK with moving it to my userspace, where I will continue to use it, and others are welcome to continue using it there, too MusikAnimal talk 15:03, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
    • @MusikAnimal: Per the instructions, the only thing I see needing a major change is assigning "Country name" a named parameter. The rest of the merging seems rather straight forward. Steel1943 (talk) 15:11, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
      • If I can use {{holiday}} in the same way and just have to add |country=, I'd be content. I kind of like having the taller version with "consequently they may not respond swiftly..." on a separate line, but no biggie. {{User:MusikAnimal/ is more typing and is what I would have to do if it were in my userspace =P MusikAnimal talk 15:23, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Obvious merge. Identical template with extra features = add the features to the original template (unless they're stupid features :-)  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  05:05, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
