Template:Contains special charactersEdit

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:Contains special characters. (non-admin closure) Mdaniels5757 (talk) 21:02, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

Propose merging Template:AA with Template:Contains special characters.

Recently a lot of the other special characters boxes were nominated for deletion with the proposal closing to merge them to {{Contains special characters}}. Since it would not make any sense to retain some boxes as specific templates and not others I'm nominating the rest of them for merging. --Trialpears (talk) 21:00, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Merge having a single template for these is easier for editors, and also much easier to expand, monitor, ensure consistency, edit over time based on changes in technology or character sets etc. I strongly support this.--Tom (LT) (talk) 08:22, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Merge as above, this has been discussed extensively and is clearly sensible. Chiswick Chap (talk) 10:44, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Merge. There is a working consensus in a few recent TfDs related to language templates that these should all be merged into one template that uses a parameter. No reason at all to have hundreds of templates where one is enough. Easier to maintain and watch. --Gonnym (talk) 12:09, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Support merge, for consistency with previous outcome. Having a single template will also better facilitate a re-thinking of how these templates are styled and used, as has been previously proposed. --Paul_012 (talk) 11:01, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Merge. I don't see any reason why this isn't a parameter, I've seen discussions coming to this conclusion before. WikiMacaroons (talk) 15:31, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Merge. Seems like a clear case of un-necessary duplication that can be handled by a parameter. — Goszei (talk) 06:20, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

Deprecated wrapper of {{WikiProject status}} usages should be replaced to use {{WikiProject status}} directly. --Trialpears (talk) 19:02, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

This deprecated template has been nominated for deletion twice before (June 2012 and December 2012) with the result "Keep for now" both times to allow for the transclusions to be replaced with {{Basketballstats}} in time. I think it is now time to list it at WP:TFDH to deal with the last 270 transclusions. --Trialpears (talk) 18:56, 20 June 2020 (UTC)v

  • Replace and delete per nom.--Tom (LT) (talk) 08:22, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Replace and delete per nom. There is never a reason to place these templates in a deprecated state and not in the holding cell.--Gonnym (talk) 12:13, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Holidays are recurring events. WP:INFOCOL. Soumya-8974 talk contribs subpages 04:52, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Oppose. I am not a big fan of that essay because it leads to nominations like this one where, for a blanket ideological reason, life is made more hard for editors and/or readers. These templates aren't that similar and I think merging them makes life more difficult for editors and, because the final template will likely be more clunky, potentially editors. These templates seem to do a fine job as is. --Tom (LT) (talk) 08:25, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose - these are clearly distinct in both function and appearance, so let's keep them that way. Chiswick Chap (talk) 10:42, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Oppose — Preceding unsigned comment added by Majun e Baqi (talkcontribs) 10:40, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Oppose - yes a public holiday is a recurring event, but public holidays are official national days declared by the government, unlike an independently organised convention or festival. GOLDIEM J (talk) 13:20, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose – The recurring event template is used for certain events that are not holidays, such as conventions, and holidays and more general recurring events have distinct attributes. Mz7 (talk) 06:15, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose - While holidays are things that do happen multiple times with predictability, they are not recurring events in the sense that Template:Infobox recurring event describes. Most parameters in either template do not fit the needs of adequately describing the other thing. Specifically, Template:Infobox holiday has no parameters for any organizations, founders, or administration; those are all things crucial info for recurring events.
