The result of the discussion was delete. Primefac (talk) 14:47, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

With 138 members of this list and the list increasing all the time, a nav template is not a reasonable navigation tool. The list and a category are much better tools for this at this. Muhandes (talk) 17:52, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

How does it address the issue? Adding this template to 138 articles is more reasonable that creating a category? How does it add in any way to the list? --Muhandes (talk) 19:03, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
What part of the policy that says categories, lists and navigation templates should all be used because they all valid is not addressing the issue? Prince of Thieves (talk) 00:08, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete A list would be more appropriate in this case and it already exists. The list can be added to the "See also" section if required. Also, it has been declared that IIMs will be included in this list but they haven't been so far (unrelated but important). --Vishal14K | Talk 19:25, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete. Unwieldy template which can be better served in a category (which already exists). Ajf773 (talk) 11:00, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

This template has only three articles, which isn't enough to warrant such a template. Namcokid47 (talk) 16:42, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

  • Delete here seems fine. --Izno (talk) 13:51, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

Template:Child Ballads complete indexEdit

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 Moved to project space. Moved to project space by author. --woodensuperman 16:43, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Article masquerading as a navbox. Too convoluted to provide any useful navigation function. Unused (and should remain that way). {{Francis James Child}} is the template to use. See previous discussion. --woodensuperman 12:47, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

  • Strong Keep it's not used or expected to be used as a navigation template. It isn't even supposed to be used in articles. It is an index which is transcluded onto the project banner for the Child ballads project, which is in turn used on 310 talk pages. Prince of Thieves (talk) 14:28, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
This isn't what navboxes are for. See WP:NAVBOX. --woodensuperman 14:29, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
It's not a navbox, it's part of another template. Prince of Thieves (talk) 14:43, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
It is a navbox, as it uses the navbox markup, and people may see it as such and use it in this way. --woodensuperman 15:04, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
I will add a namespace error switch then. The point is that it is not a navigation template, it's a perfectly useful index. Prince of Thieves (talk) 15:19, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
  • It will no longer display if used in the mainspace, instead showing an error warning that it should not be used on articles. This will not affect it's use in project templates on talk pages and in projectspace. Prince of Thieves (talk) 15:27, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
  • move to a subpage of Wikipedia:WikiProject Roots music/Child Ballads, which will make it more clear that this is not to be used in article space. Frietjes (talk) 16:24, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
That's a good idea. I did that. Prince of Thieves (talk) 16:34, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
Can you move all the sub-templates as well please. --woodensuperman 16:36, 8 March 2018 (UTC)
Yes I will post back when done. Prince of Thieves (talk) 16:37, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was Withdrawn. --woodensuperman 15:02, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Not enough entries to warrant a navbox. --woodensuperman 12:41, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

  • Strong keep, necessary component of parent template Template:Current Members of the Canadian House of Commons. Additionally: the number of independent MPs fluctuates depending on the political situation, the rationale of "not enough entries to warrant a navbox" is not sufficient to justify deletion and may result in a cycle of re-creating and deleting the template when the number of independent MPs falls below this unspecified threshold.
