A largely unnavigable navbox that includes schools under the Mastery Transcript Consortium international group of schools. However, whether it needs to be revised or made into a subpage of the creator until it's ready can be discussed. Not opposed to these two options. But perhaps all the schools should be listed on its own article than on a navbox that includes all schools under this association. The reasoning being that sometimes articles can help better transclude the school articles than a navbox. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 00:00, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete Basically just a list of schools. It's really article content, and if it's required it should go in Mastery Transcript Consortium or as a separate "List of" article. Fails much of WP:NAVBOX, since the schools are basically not related to each other (except by being in this consortium), the schools don't generally refer to other schools in the consortium, its not WP:BIDIRECTIONAL (if it was a proper navbox it would be included in every school article). Per NAVBOX: "If the collection of articles does not meet these criteria, the articles are likely loosely related. A list, category, or neither, may accordingly be more appropriate."

Unused with no articles relating to Keir Starmer outside his own. The rest are just links to article sections. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 22:04, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete A WP:SIDEBAR is "a grouping of links used in multiple related articles to facilitate navigation between those articles in Wikipedia." Links to different article sections and in this case multiple links to the same article are not reasons for having one. Actually there's very few real links. Also "All articles within a template relate to a single, coherent subject." which isn't the case here. Would you put this sidebar in Holborn and St Pancras (UK Parliament constituency)? Clearly not, since it is not an article about Keir Starmer. So fails the WP:BIDIRECTIONAL principal too. Nigej (talk) 07:25, 22 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Delete for the reasons outlined by Nigej. Joseph2302 (talk) 13:26, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Unused duplicate of the Evo Morales navbox. The navbox is already transcluded on a number of articles relating to Morales and thus, a sidebar is redundant. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 21:36, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete per nom. My own preference is generally for navboxes over sidebars and I think that's what our readers expect nowadays. Nigej (talk) 21:43, 21 January 2022
  • Delete per nom + Comment. I created the sidebar; if preference is for navboxes, I say go ahead and delete it. I believe the sidebar might have more information and may be better organized than the navbox so I'd ask for an editor to take a look at the former and transclude relative articles from the sidebar before its deleted.

Not updated since August 2018. A non-defining arbitrary selection. The players are unconnected except for being the "Top ten Egyptian male squash player" on that date, making the navbox of little use for navigation. Nigej (talk) 20:27, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete probably not that many professional Egyptian squash players, not important enough to warrant a template. Joseph2302 (talk) 20:38, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

Winning a monthly award is not defining, so we don't need templates to try and link these players together. Joseph2302 (talk) 18:47, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete per nom. Not only not defining but, per WP:NAVBOX "The articles should refer to each other, to a reasonable extent.". The reality is that's no connection between the people in the list (except that they've won this award). The only navigation required is between ICC Player of the Month and the player articles (and vice-versa) and we don't need a navbox for that. Nigej (talk) 19:15, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

No transclusions. Out of date by almost two years. This content appears to be maintained locally at UCI Men's road racing world ranking. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:28, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete per nom. There are way too many of this sort of template. Actually they're very little use for navigation, being mainly decorative banners. Really we should be deleting lots of these even if there are transclusions. {{Top ten Egyptian male squash players}} says "Top ten Egyptian male squash players as of August 2018" What is the point? Nigej (talk) 19:09, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

Used only in the /doc page where it should be subst. No reason for this to be in its own template. Gonnym (talk) 17:24, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

Recent TfD: /2022_January_14 -DePiep (talk) 17:32, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Subst and delete is OK too. Info to be kept. -DePiep (talk) 17:34, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
  • And then delete the substed content from the documentation template's documentation. People who want arbitrary colors from arbitrary places will have figured out how to get that information. --Izno (talk) 03:00, 23 January 2022 (UTC)
How 'arbitrary' colors? -DePiep (talk) 06:21, 24 January 2022 (UTC)

  • substitute and delete, single-use. I would also be happy with deleting the content after substitution. Frietjes (talk) 16:33, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete An old version of the template that was copied over in 2009 and used as a sort of sandbox, I suspect. Best to delete. If someone wants a sandbox/testcases they'd be better starting from strcatch. Nigej (talk) 15:42, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

Unused timelines that aren't used at Ford Falcon (Australia). Gonnym (talk) 15:03, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete per nom. We've seen this style before and they rarely seem to work. Just confusing. Still can't really work out what they are. They clearly aren't designed for navigation. Nigej (talk) 15:24, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
  • Delete - I don't think these are particularly useful. If a graphical representation were helpful, it would be better off integrated into the Falcon article than as a template. --Sable232 (talk) 00:35, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Other than Sisimpur, none of these shows (with articles) are original shows to this network which would mean there is no reason for this template to be used on any of these articles (for the same reason we don't have categories for non-original programming). This means that we are left with two links, the network and that one show which is not enough for a navigation template. Gonnym (talk) 15:00, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

  • Delete per nom. Fails "not a TV guide". Having a navbox for "List of programmes broadcast by ..." is never going to be suitable. Nigej (talk) 15:16, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

No actual transclusions. Has been blanked since 2014. The information in these templates has been moving to Wikidata, and the parent article for this template is following that pattern. The template is no longer needed. – Jonesey95 (talk) 08:07, 21 January 2022 (UTC)
