November 23Edit

Template:Lc1Edit

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 merge to Template:Lx. (non-admin closure) Galobtter (pingó mió) 02:14, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

Propose merging Template:Lc1 with Template:Lx.
Right now, Wikipedia:Categories for discussion deletion nominations are styled as:

Category:Foo - (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

No other XfD uses monospace font (which is reserved for showing code or input). No other XfD uses both a hyphen (which should be a dash) and parenthesis to separate the page name from the links.

To accomplish this, CfD transcludes {{Lc1}}, which itself transcludes {{Lx}} with its own parameter "cfd2", which is there solely to create this weird formatting for CfD.

I'd like to propose we simply use {{Lx}} in its normal use, which will produce:

Category:Foo (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

Such a solution would be implemented by deleting Template:Lc1 and replacing it with, or redirecting it to, Template:Lx, which is why this discussion is here at TfD. But at the least, I would like to eliminate the hyphen and the monospacing in favor of a wider but proportionally spaced font. --Bsherr (talk) 21:33, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

  •   Strong support. –User456541 22:22, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete Template:Lc1 and replace with Template:Lx (there's nothing to merge, in my view). I spend a lot of time at CfD, and I never understood why there was (or saw any reason for) a separate template. -- Black Falcon (talk) 00:38, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Yep. This is both weird and pointless.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  23:00, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Delete all four of these (above) as having no project referents. These could probably be speedied as non-controversial maintenance. Not concerned about venue trivia, per WP:NOT#BUREAUCRACY, especially given both the speediability, and these templates purporting to be about an actual WP resource which doesn't really exist; they are not pure "userland", but a valid TfD matter in my view. MfD normally has jurisdiction over U-boxes because they're normally "nano-essays", in a sense, expressing an interest or opinion; these are different, and are broken navigation.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  23:04, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

Unnecessary wrappers for {{Infobox settlement}}, with limited transclusions. Subst:itution will reduce the maintenance overhead, reduce the cognitive burden for editors, and enable articles to benefit more immediately from improvements to the current parent template.

  • Delete - A while ago I added an infobox to Patagonia, based on the far more detailed example at Wallonia. Regions are well-served by the Settlement box, no reason for these separate iterations to exit. /maybe/ a dedicated region infobox might work, but right now there's no reason for that as far as I can tell. ‡ Єl Cid of ᐺalencia ᐐT₳LKᐬ 18:50, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Template:Infobox controversial inventionEdit

The result of the discussion was delete. No opposition. Primefac (talk) 00:53, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

9 transclusions total, including those outside of mainspace. All articles on which it is transcluded consist of perpetual motion hoaxes, except for MOS-failing one about psychoanalysis in which the stated controversy is "Para-Freudian" without any further content about it.

In fact, the template seems design primarily for pseudoscientific inventions (that no one ever sees in person). But the name (IMO) suggests that it is for inventions that were indisputably created, but either its efficacy is questioned (many hoax inventions) or inventions that actually accomplish the intended goal, but there are people with moral concerns, safety concerns, etc (nuclear reactor, sex toy, peer-to-peer, selfie stick). But how would we determine to determine which inventions are controversial enough? And is it even necessary? Delete.  — Mr. Guye (talk) (contribs)  22:30, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was delete. No opposition. Primefac (talk) 03:40, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

An Arbitration Committee remedy allowed administrators to take broad measures to enforce the BLP policy, known as special enforcement, but was later superseded by motion providing for general discretionary sanctions instead. The current user warning templates (BLP and defamation series) are adequate to address the new discretionary sanctions remedy. As a result, the template scheme for enforcing the superseded special enforcement remedy became deprecated. These templates, some of which have already been redirected or soft redirected, can now be deleted, as a reinstatement of this remedy is unlikely and there is little historical value in retaining them. --Bsherr (talk) 04:58, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Mr. Guye, you should link to the "beverage infoboxes" that you think can replace this infobox. Orientls (talk) 07:04, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep. The parameters for this infobox are entirely different from Template:Infobox drink, the next closest fit. Using Inforbox drink would produce an absurd result as currently encoded. --Bsherr (talk) 22:06, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
