Template:BT fareEdit

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. — JJMC89(T·C) 04:10, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

Per WP:NOTTRAVEL it is not the job of an encyclopedia to inform readers how much the bus costs, transcluded on five articles all of which appear non-notable anyhow. Ajf773 (talk) 22:21, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

  • @Ajf773: I know this is only partly related but should parameters like |fare= be removed from {{Infobox bus line}} per WP:NOTTRAVEL? I just made the template to have editors only edit one area to update the fare, but if the fare shouldn't be displayed on any of the articles than I don't mind if this gets deleted, but if the fares are staying, oppose deleting this template. BrandonXLF (t@lk) 22:51, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
  • I agree those parameters should be removed from the infobox as well. I discussed this on the talk page but didn't have much response. Ajf773 (talk) 22:58, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
  • @Ajf773: (forgot to ping) If you want to startup a discussion to remove |fare= and |cash= again, I'd support it, I just think if we're getting rid of this because of that guideline, we should get rid of all instances of bus cost. BrandonXLF (t@lk) 01:01, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was merge to Template:Footwear. Brands should be removed from the final product. Primefac (talk) 15:54, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Propose merging Template:High heels with Template:Footwear.
Arguably redudant, much of the essential contents are already in destination template. As for the "Brands/firms people", quite some warning of commercial content there, isn't it? I doubt listing this secltion, for whatever criteria, is motivated in such a template. PPEMES (talk) 21:44, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion and clearer consensus.

  • delete {{High heels}} as this should already be a subset of {{footwear}}. any need for sub-classification can be handled by categories. Frietjes (talk) 17:46, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was merge to Template:Types of crowns. No opposition to the proposal, and no prejudices from an administrative standpoint with renaming the final template if that makes more sense. Primefac (talk) 15:56, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Propose merging Template:Parts of a crown with Template:Types of crowns.
Might as well merge to form a "Crowns" template? PPEMES (talk) 21:39, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Confusing template that is not helpful to find the info it suggests to give The Banner talk 10:45, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

  • delete, looks like a failed cut-and-paste of another sidebar. Frietjes (talk) 23:52, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment. The template generates the redirect Mythology of India which points to the DAB page Indian mythology. The way it does this is buried somewhere deep within the code, and it's unclear whether a good link would be to one entry on the DAB page or to several. Narky Blert (talk) 10:36, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was delete. After converting uses to {{Infobox settlement}} Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 09:19, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Replace and delete

District-specific wrapper for {{Infobox settlement}}, with limited transclusions, on pretty stable sets of articles. 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.

Note: Despite being named "Infobox settlement" the template is not only used for settlements. Per its documentation, Infobox settlement is "used to produce an Infobox for human settlements (cities, towns, villages, communities) as well as other administrative districts, counties, provinces, et cetera—in fact, any subdivision below the level of a country".

Other entities (divisions, upazilas, cities, villages ...) already transclude {{Infobox settlement}} directly.

This non-notable band was merged into one of its member's' article and that article is the only one that uses the template since all of the albums also redirect back to the member's article. Aspects (talk) 05:28, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Overlapping templates. {{Intellectual property laws of the European Union}} was just recently merged with {{Trademark-EU}} per this TfD for the same reasons. Gonnym (talk) 19:40, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was no consensus. Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 23:07, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Propose merging Template:Kings of Italy (1861–1946) with Template:Heads of State of Italy.
Not sure. But following the precedent of the merged Template:Heads of state of France as well as Template:Former monarchies Italian peninsula, ought the same thing happen to the 'heads of state' of 'Italy'? PPEMES (talk) 20:22, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Oppose. I think this oversimplifies the notion of "Italy". The name is applied—and misapplied—to different states of varying boundaries, societies, languages, etc. The economy of one single template may seem appealing, but I think it's misleading to casual readers. The encyclopedia should help people to see factual nuances more clearly. For the same reason, I don't think the bloated mega-merge of Template:Heads of state of France was decided correctly, and I don't think it's a viable precedent for anything.
