I see only two pages on which this template could be used, namely New Flyer and New Flyer Xcelsior, so it can easily be substituted instead of keeping it as a separate template. (It is currently also used on List of New Flyer Xcelsior production model codes but that page should be merged into New Flyer Xcelsior soon.) Eisthefifthletter (talk) 22:58, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

  • Keep. One of the points of templates is to ensure that multiple uses of the same information doesn't go out of synch (particularly when formatted). AlgaeGraphix (talk) 00:07, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
    By that logic, then similar templates should exist for the other New Flyer models, the Xcelsior should not be the only one with a template. It doesn't make sense to keep only this one. Eisthefifthletter (talk) 18:31, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Delete Low potential for reuse, and I am generally skeptical that we need to worry about 'out of sync' when the topic is so niche. --Izno (talk) 20:12, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
  • substitute in New Flyer Xcelsior and delete. Frietjes (talk) 16:27, 14 April 2021 (UTC)

Completely pointless template that is a textbook example of WP:Template creep. There is no point having a template that only produces the wikicode "In country X", it is easier for editors to just type those three words into the page. In some cases the template is longer than the output it produces (e.g. canada). The author added this code to {{in}}, which I reverted as it is inappropriate to bundle this into an unrelated mathematical template, but I think this lacks sufficient complexity to be worth having at all. 86.23.109.101 (talk) 18:23, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

Delete: Per 86.23, not helpful. There are a bunch of templates that already deal with country names; unless this template is provably useful like {{CountryPrefixThe}}, and does something that cannot be done with any existing template, it should be removed. User:GKFXtalk 18:32, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
  • delete and salt per the rfd, easily confused with India. Frietjes (talk) 20:34, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Delete - It's actually worse than the nomination makes it out to be. The purpose is not just to expand common country abbreviations, it is any "common" abbreviation. The template is not useful. -- Whpq (talk) 02:22, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
  • The extra functionality was added after I nominated it here, but I agree it makes it worse - now it's ambiguous as well - should "geo" refer to Georgia, geometry, geography, geology … . The intention seems to have been to "reduce the wikitext size" of pages (based on edits like this) but that's pointless at best, and probably actively harmful, as the effects on load time and server usage will be orders of magnitude worse for calling dozens of templates with enormous switch statements compared to just having an extra 500 bytes of plain text. 86.23.109.101 (talk) 13:22, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Another unused string-handling template. Also doesn't seem to be working anyway based on User:Davidgothberg/Test43#Testing {{str ≤ ≥ len}} User:GKFXtalk 10:19, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
