On this page, the deletion or merging of templates and modules, except as noted below, is discussed. To propose the renaming of a template or templates, use Wikipedia:Requested moves.

How to use this page[edit]

What not to propose for discussion here[edit]

The majority of deletion and merger proposals concerning pages in the template namespace and module namespace should be listed on this page. However, there are a few exceptions:

Stub templates
Stub templates and categories should be listed at Categories for discussion, as these templates are merely containers for their categories, unless the stub template does not come with a category and is being nominated by itself.
Userboxes
Userboxes should be listed at Miscellany for deletion, regardless of the namespace in which they reside.
Speedy deletion candidates
If the template clearly satisfies a criterion for speedy deletion, tag it with a speedy deletion template. For example, if you wrote the template and request its deletion, tag it with {{Db-author}}.
Policy or guideline templates
Templates that are associated with particular Wikipedia policies or guidelines, such as the speedy deletion templates, cannot be listed at TfD separately. They should be discussed on the talk page of the relevant guideline.
Template redirects
List at Redirects for discussion.

Reasons to delete a template[edit]

  1. The template violates some part of the template namespace guidelines, and can't be altered to be in compliance.
  2. The template is redundant to a better-designed template.
  3. The template is not used, either directly or by template substitution (the latter cannot be concluded from the absence of backlinks), and has no likelihood of being used.
  4. The template violates a policy such as Neutral point of view or Civility and it can't be fixed through normal editing.

Templates should not be nominated if the issue can be fixed by normal editing. Instead, you should edit the template to fix its problems. If the template is complex and you don't know how to fix it, WikiProject Templates may be able to help.

Templates for which none of these apply may be deleted by consensus here. If a template is being misused, consider clarifying its documentation to indicate the correct use, or informing those that misuse it, rather than nominating it for deletion. Initiate a discussion on the template talk page if the correct use itself is under debate.

Listing a template[edit]

To list a template for deletion or merging, follow this three-step process. The use of Twinkle (explained below) is strongly recommended, as it automates and simplifies these steps. Note that the "Template:" prefix should not be included anywhere when carrying out these steps (unless otherwise specified).

Step Instructions
I: Tag the template. Add one of the following codes to the top of the template page:

Note:

  • If the template nominated is inline, do not add a newline between the TfD notice and the code of the template.
  • If the template to be nominated for deletion is protected, make a request for the TfD tag to be added, by posting on the template's talk page and using the {{editprotected}} template to catch the attention of administrators or Template editors.
  • For templates designed to be substituted, add <noinclude>...</noinclude> around the TfD notice to prevent it from being substituted alongside the template.
  • Do not mark the edit as minor.
  • Use an edit summary like
    Nominated for deletion; see [[Wikipedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]]
    or
    Nominated for merging; see [[Wikipedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]].
  • Before saving your edit, preview your edit to ensure the Tfd message is displayed properly.

Multiple templates: If you are nominating multiple related templates, choose a meaningful title for the discussion (like "American films by decade templates"). Tag every template with {{subst:Tfd|heading=discussion title}} or {{subst:Tfm|name of other template|heading=discussion title}} instead of the versions given above, replacing discussion title with the title you chose (but still not changing the PAGENAME code).

Related categories: If including template-populated tracking categories in the TfD nomination, add {{Catfd|template name}} to the top of any categories that would be deleted as a result of the TfD, this time replacing template name with the name of the template being nominated. (If you instead chose a meaningful title for a multiple nomination, use {{Catfd|header=title of nomination}} instead.)

TemplateStyles pages: The above templates will not work on TemplateStyles pages. Instead, add a CSS comment to the top of the page:

/* This template is being discussed in accordance with Wikipedia's deletion policy. Help reach a consensus at its entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2022_August_11#Template:template_name.css */
II: List the template at TfD. Follow this link to edit today's TfD log.

Add this text to the top of the list:

  • For deletion: {{subst:Tfd2|template name|text=Why you think the template should be deleted. ~~~~}}
  • For merging: {{subst:Tfm2|template name|other template's name|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

If the template has had previous TfDs, you can add {{Oldtfdlist|previous TfD without brackets|result of previous TfD}} directly after the Tfd2/Catfd2 template.

Use an edit summary such as
Adding [[Template:template name]].

Multiple templates: If this is a deletion proposal involving multiple templates, use the following:

{{subst:Tfd2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be deleted. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ). Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

If this is a merger proposal involving more than two templates, use the following:

{{subst:Tfm2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|with=main template (optional)|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ), plus one more in |with=. |with= does not need to be used, but should be the template that you want the other templates to be merged into. Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

Related categories: If this is a deletion proposal involving a template and a category populated solely by templates, add this code after the Tfd2 template but before the text of your rationale:

{{subst:Catfd2|category name}}
III: Notify users. Please notify the creator of the template nominated (as well as the creator of the target template, if proposing a merger). It is helpful to also notify the main contributors of the template that you are nominating. To find them, look in the page history or talk page of the template. Then, add one of the following:

to the talk pages of the template creator (and the creator of the other template for a merger) and the talk pages of the main contributors. It is also helpful to make any interested WikiProjects aware of the discussion. To do that, make sure the template's talk page is tagged with the banners of any relevant WikiProjects; please consider notifying any of them that do not use Article alerts.

Multiple templates: There is no template for notifying an editor about a multiple-template nomination: please write a personal message in these cases.

Consider adding any templates you nominate for TfD to your watchlist. This will help ensure that the TfD tag is not removed.

After nominating: Notify interested projects and editors[edit]

While it is sufficient to list a template for discussion at TfD (see above), nominators and others sometimes want to attract more attention from and participation by informed editors. All such efforts must comply with Wikipedia's guideline against biased canvassing.

To encourage participation by less experienced editors, please avoid Wikipedia-specific abbreviations in the messages you leave about the discussion, link to any relevant policies or guidelines, and link to the TfD discussion page itself. If you are recommending that a template be speedily deleted, please give the criterion that it meets.

Notifying related WikiProjects[edit]

WikiProjects are groups of editors that are interested in a particular subject or type of editing. If the article is within the scope of one or more WikiProjects, they may welcome a brief, neutral note on their project's talk page(s) about the TfD. You can use {{Tfdnotice}} for this.

Tagging the nominated template's talk page with a relevant Wikiproject's banner will result in the template being listed in that project's Article Alerts automatically, if they subscribe to the system. For instance, tagging a template with {{WikiProject Physics}} will list the discussion in Wikipedia:WikiProject Physics/Article alerts.

Notifying substantial contributors to the template[edit]

While not required, it is generally considered courteous to notify the good-faith creator and any main contributors of the template and its talkpage that you are nominating for discussion. To find the creator and main contributors, look in the page history or talk page.

At this point, you've done all you need to do as nominator. Sometime after seven days have passed, someone else will either close the discussion or, where needed, "relist" it for another seven days of discussion. (That "someone" may not be you, the nominator.)

Once you have submitted a template here, no further action is necessary on your part. If the nomination is successful it will be added to the Holding Cell until the change is implemented. There is no requirement for nominators to be part of the implementation process, but they are allowed to if they so wish.

Also, consider adding any templates you nominate to your watchlist. This will help ensure that your nomination tag is not mistakenly or deliberately removed.

Twinkle[edit]

Twinkle is a convenient tool that can perform many of the posting and notification functions automatically, with fewer errors and missed steps than manual editing. Twinkle does not notify WikiProjects, although many of them have automatic alerts. It is helpful to notify any interested WikiProjects that don't receive alerts, but this has to be done manually.

Discussion[edit]

Anyone can join the discussion, but please understand the deletion policy and explain your reasoning.

People will sometimes also recommend subst or subst and delete and similar. This means the template text should be "merged" into the articles that use it. Depending on the content, the template page may then be deleted; if preserving the edit history for attribution is desirable, it may be history-merged with the target article or moved to mainspace and redirected.

Templates are rarely orphaned—that is, removed from pages that transclude them—before the discussion is closed. A list of open discussions eligible for closure can be found at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Old unclosed discussions.

Closing discussion[edit]

Administrators should read the closing instructions before closing a nomination. Note that WP:XFDcloser semi-automates this process and ensures all of the appropriate steps are taken.

Current discussions[edit]

August 11[edit]

Template:Heads of government of monarchies[edit]

Contravenes all 5 principles of Wikipedia:Categories, lists, and navigation templates#Navigation templates: this is not a coherent topic, in that reliable sources do not usually group these people into a category; the subject of the template is not mentioned in the articles; the articles do not frequently refer to each other; there is no article on the topic (nor should there be); and editors would not usually link these topics in a see also section. DrKay (talk) 13:31, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I really do not think it will work, please delete per request. I only created these templates as a sort of an experiment and was meant to be temporary. I was going to do ask an admin to delete in the first place since it may not work. SpinnerLaserzthe2nd (talk) 14:37, 11 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

August 10[edit]

Template:Gospel[edit]

Three links outside the title. Fails NENAN. Not every musical group needs a navbox. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 21:41, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template:Danescombe Lake Routemap[edit]

Unused with no articles for use. Just two links, a hill, and river, articles. Not much of a routemap template. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 21:37, 10 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template:INFOBOX INDCONST[edit]

Unused and unclear what the benefit is over Template:Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency or Template:Infobox Lok Sabha Constituency. Elli (talk | contribs) 21:10, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Keep, Template:INFOBOX INDCONST is used to substitute the full template of Template:Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency while using an AWB or during manual edit. Substituting Template:Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency gives unnecessary extra bits thats need to be cleaned up. --Venkat TL (talk) 06:13, 3 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Delete. If the base template has an issue, fix it. If the copy/paste in the documenation of the base template has an issue, fix it. What not to do is create a template with an unclear name with no documentation. Gonnym (talk) 13:21, 3 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Special:Diff/1102475255 shows the result of {{subst:Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency}}. Now compare this with Special:Diff/1102475526 when you use {{subst:INFOBOX INDCONST}}. @Gonnym @WikiCleanerMan, @MPGuy2824, I dont know how to fix it. I am not sure if this is even fixable. I just want to get the work done and hence this came as an obvious solution till someone finds a better one. I request the admin to not delete this until a viable alternative to do the same thing is made available. I think this deletion nomination is going overboard and deleting stuff that are useful and actively being used without any clear policy basis for deletion. Venkat TL (talk) 07:38, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Venkat, see Special:Diff/1102478636 which shows the results of {{subst:Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency/sandbox}}. Please test it out yourself. I'll test it out more tomorrow and if seems fine, I'll make the same changes on Template:Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency. The problems was that the Template wasn't designed to be substituted. -MPGuy2824 (talk) 08:16, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Indeed I figured out the "Infobox Indian state legislative assembly constituency" was not made for substitution, which is why I made one for doing just that. The infobox is used on 5,000+ pages, so we need to be careful about editing the infobox template. This deletion of Template:INFOBOX INDCONST is unnecessarily disruptive. @MPGuy2824 The comparison is at Special:Diff/1102475526/1102503945, I think the comments should be substituted, they help the editors. Venkat TL (talk) 11:30, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Some things don't need fixes. Some things don't need to exist. Not every template needs to have a subst version. Just use the infobox like it should. Gonnym (talk) 12:49, 6 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
According to what Wikipedia policy? Venkat TL (talk) 12:52, 6 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The substitution template saves time in searching and saves 7-8 clicks needed to copy paste, allows AWB usage too. These are significant benefits in keeping this template. Venkat TL (talk) 08:34, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Actually, it's just an infobox template & no reader would know any difference. It's just a matter of formatting & appropriate parameters can be adjusted to handle a Negro league franchise.

Template:Mortal Sins According To The Catholic Church[edit]

This came to my attention as a poorly-named template, but I have deep concerns about its viability. Definition of terms: these are more properly known as "grave matter" to theologians, as a "mortal sin" cannot be judged a priori.

  • Sin is a personal fault, and so how can "deforestation" or "economic inequality" be personal sins?
  • This is an unsourced compilation. How many of these included articles document the sinfulness of the act? It is invalid and cannot be used as a navbox.
  • In short, this fails WP:NAVBOX numbers 2, 3, and 5. Elizium23 (talk) 09:19, 6 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I use it as a checklist! A good faith navbox but probably too tangential to use on almost all of its entries. Venial sins, on the other hand... Randy Kryn (talk) 16:26, 6 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The result of the discussion was  procedurally closed. I asked WikiCleanerMan in past to ask me to CSD G7-tag templates like this I made when newer to Wikipedia. They didn't do so; this likely could have been speedied and I don't understand why that was not tried before opening needless discussion here.

Template:8TeamBracket-with fifth-seventh no third[edit]

Redundant to {{8TeamBracket-Consols}}. – Pbrks (t • c) 02:33, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Comment. {{8TeamBracket-Consols}} lacks the thicker borders featured in the three nominees that are employed to help the "main" rounds stand out. I believe this is a great visual feature to instantly highlight the difference between the main and consolation rounds. I therefore propose either keeping the nominees or altering {{8TeamBracket-Consols}} to adopt the thicker borders. – TurboGUY (talk) 17:29, 30 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@TurboGUY: While not the biggest deal, I think the thick borders are a bit excessive, but I do agree that it helps to differentiate. I've changed the headers colors of the consolation bracket to white, which I believe is sufficient. Do you agree? – Pbrks (t • c) 05:37, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think this is a very fair compromise, thank you.

I have also noticed that {{8TeamBracket-Consols}} lack the "details" parameters of "{{8TeamBracket-with third-fifth-seventh-NoSeeds}}". This parameter allows for each tie to display additional information underneath such as date, time and location of the match. There is an example in the documentation of "NoSeeds". Again, please consider adding this feature to {{8TeamBracket-Consols}}. Thanks again. – TurboGUY (talk) 13:14, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@TurboGUY: It does! While not in the doc (I'll update it), the parameters are of the form |RDn-detailsm=. – Pbrks (t • c) 16:46, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Comment. Pbrks! You're gonna delete my template and you didn't tell me anything about it. (I am the author of the template {{8TeamBracket-with third-fifth-seventh}}.) I don't like your rounds abbreviations. First round as "RD3"? What a nonsense! It's much more logical in my template: first round as "QF", second round as "SF", etc. So change those labels (for example from RD1 to RD7 if you prefer RDs) and I'll agree with the deletion. Maiō T. (talk) 08:35, 4 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Maiō T.: Apologies for not notifying you. I disagree that the round names are illogical, they simply correspond to the column. In any event, I added your previous naming convention as acceptable parameter names. – Pbrks (t • c) 04:51, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Comment @Pbrks: Hi. Please take a look at the use of the template on Beach soccer at the 2019 World Beach Games – Qualification (CONCACAF) for an example of where it is currently not working properly after consolidating the old templates. 1) The scores of the seventh and third place matches will not display. 2) The details for the fifth place match will not display. 3) The details for the final are incorrectly displaying above the tie rather than below it like all other ties. Thanks for investigating this. – TurboGUY (talk) 04:35, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
