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_July_20#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.

July 20

Template:CP Music Group

Two links outside the title. Fails navigation. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 17:53, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:2024 Democratic primaries

Empty page. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 17:50, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Pakyong District

Just a link to Pakyong that was used on Rangpo before I removed it as all it was doing was transcluding a link which can be done without a template in this case. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 17:50, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

ABU TV Song Festivals

Propose merging Template:ABU TV Song Festival 2012, Template:ABU TV Song Festival 2013, Template:ABU TV Song Festival 2014, Template:ABU TV Song Festival 2015 and Template:ABU TV Song Festival 2016 with Template:ABU TV Song Festival.
The "countries" section of these 5 year templates are the same links as in the main Template:ABU TV Song Festival. The "artist" and "song" sections are either unlinked text or red links and it's unlikely that the songs or artists would be notable enough for future creation. Full meaningful navigation is provided by Template:ABU TV Song Festival, the merge target. I classified this as a merge, however deleting these 5 templates would have the same outcome given the overlap. Grk1011 (talk) 17:33, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Unused poll chart. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 16:20, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Gabriel Soriano

Unused filmography table. Not needed. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 16:19, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

ABU Radio Song Festivals

Propose merging Template:ABU Radio Song Festival 2012, Template:ABU Radio Song Festival 2014 and Template:ABU Radio Song Festival 2015 with Template:ABU Radio Song Festival.
The "countries" section of these 3 year templates are the same links as in the main Template:ABU Radio Song Festival. The "artist" and "song" sections are either unlinked text or red links. With no subsequent events scheduled to take place, there is no chance that additional articles could be added to make these helpful. Full meaningful navigation is provided by Template:ABU Radio Song Festival, the merge target. I classified this as a merge, however deleting these 3 templates would have the same outcome given the overlap. Grk1011 (talk) 15:51, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Miss Colombia 2021 delegates

Only contains one link (the eventual overall winner), so serves no purpose whatsoever as a navigation template. Richard3120 (talk) 15:41, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Eurovision Young event templates

All of these navboxes, covering Eurovision Young Dancers or Eurovision Young Musicians do not aid in navigation and are largely duplicated by the main templates: Template:Eurovision Young Dancers and Template:Eurovision Young Musicians. The only difference is that each one also includes red links or redirects to the specific performers for each country, each year. These red links and redirects have little chance of being created in the future, thus navigation is already provided through the main templates. These templates were likely created in an attempt to mirror Eurovision navboxes like Template:Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest, however both Young Dancers and Musicians are not nearly as popular as the song contest and will never have a similar quantity or type of articles that would create a similar need to navigate between. Grk1011 (talk) 15:11, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

July 19

Eurovision Young Dancers one year templates

These navboxes were created under the assumption that these countries would compete more than once in the event. Since that did not materialize and no new events are taking place (since 2015), there is no chance that these will grow. Additionally, the four main articles of each navbox were recently redirected for the same reason. Each navbox largely consists of crossed out links to events that the subjects did not participate in. Grk1011 (talk) 21:01, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:ABU International Dance Festival

Only one instance of this event 5 years ago (2017) and subsequent editions never materialized. Navbox has consisted largely of red links since its creation in 2016. Its parent article has also been a redirect since 2016. Grk1011 (talk) 18:45, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Eurovision Dance Contest

Out of the many links that are (or used to be) part of this navbox, only 3 articles exist: Eurovision Dance Contest, Eurovision Dance Contest 2008, and Eurovision Dance Contest 2009. The rest are redirects. With the contest canceled over 12 years ago, it is unlikely that more articles would be created to make this navbox helpful. Grk1011 (talk) 18:33, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Star Circle Batch 11

Navbox whose main article was deleted. Most of the entries in this navbox do not mention "Star Circle". – Jonesey95 (talk) 18:23, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Bačka

Just a link to Bačka. Unused. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 16:53, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:European stock exchange consolidation

Unused graph/chart template. Hard to see this could be substituted on any relevant space as it's too large to even read comfortably and gain any information off of. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 16:50, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Please do not edit my user page. Thank you :)

Unused edit notice template. Possibly unnecessary as a friendly message when editing other users' user pages. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 16:47, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Marie Deja Vu

Nothing but two image files uploaded on Commons by creator. Nothing useful here. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 16:43, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Публикация

The template is redundant as it repeats ((cite)) functionality. AXONOV (talk) 14:10, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Move to Template:Cite web/Russian per rest of set. Gonnym (talk) 12:25, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Tribl

Re-created after Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2022 February 19#Template:Tribl with the addition of one link. It still does not navigate sufficient quantities of articles. Izno (talk) 06:13, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:James Bradley bibliography

Navbox with no main article and no links to articles. One article could be linked, but that looks like the only possibility. – Jonesey95 (talk) 06:07, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Uberon

No transclusions. Discussed on one page in 2015 but not currently used. – Jonesey95 (talk) 05:46, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Pecos League ballparks

Three links. Fails NENAN. Four articles under Category:Pecos League ballparks still wouldn't pass for navigational purposes for this navbox. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 00:38, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Gary SouthShore RailCats

Fails NENAN. No links outside the main article minus the Greg Tagert and the stadium articles. Everything else is either a link to the team's article sections or general baseball article links. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 00:31, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:AC Surf

All fail basic navigation. All link to one or two articles outside the main team article in the title. The rest are links to articles sections and categories. Links to personnel should not count as those are just articles about former MLB players that have played a role with the team, but not enough to justify keeping the templates because there is no overall connection to the team itself. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 00:24, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

July 18

Template:Philippines–South Korea relations

Contains only one article that is related to the relations between the two nations, Philippine Expeditionary Forces to Korea. Everything else is a broad general topic. Nothing directly related to the relations between The Philippines and South Korea. One relations article does it exist and that is List of ambassadors of the Philippines to South Korea. Looking from the mainspace category, you don't have much to form a navbox. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 16:45, 11 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Bridgeport Bluefish

All fail basic navigation. All link to one or two articles outside the main team article in the title. The rest are links to articles sections and categories. Same as the Long Island Ducks template I nominated on July 5. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 21:42, 18 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:ONCE (fandom)

Appears to have been moved from the Draft namespace by its creator. I admit I'm not sure what this is supposed to be (based on its usage, perhaps an attempt at a userbox?), so bringing it for discussion. Kinu t/c 10:11, 18 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:If checkuser

This template is unused, and it seems unlikely that it could ever have a viable use. I can only think of two contexts in which someone might want to use it.

One of those potential contexts is to "hide text" that is somehow sensitive and only checkusers should know; but that would be a security problem as the content would still be visible in the page's wikitext, so such sensitive content should be shared using whatever methods checkusers normally use to privately communicate with each other.

The other situation would be when placing convenience links on a page that are only functional for checkusers (i.e. links to pages that need checkuser-level permissions to access). However, the only real context in which such links would be useful would be that of linking to a user with helper links (in the style of ((userlinks))), but specialised for checkuser-related contexts. However, the checkuser permission only does one thing, so there's only one checkuser-related context (WP:SPI). There's already an existing template that's used there for that purpose, ((checkuser)), and any situation which would want to generate checkuser-specific helper links should probably go via that, meaning that this template is redundant (((checkuser)) is not written in terms of this template).

As such, deleting ((if checkuser)) is likely for the best to a) simplify the lists of namespace/user-detection templates, making it easier to find the right one, and b) discourage people from attempting to use this template inappropriately. --ais523 07:06, 18 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Per WP:NENAN. The albums listed in the template previously had articles, but all have since been redirected to musician's page as non-notable releases. The template now has no navigational value because all links go to the same place. Also, the template now only appears at the bottom of the musician's article. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (TALK|CONTRIBS) 01:48, 18 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

No objection to deletion per Gderrin, I thought this was already decided by a previous discussion.

Template:History of Thailand 1932–1973

Similar to the Sri Lanka templates that were deleted on April 12 I nominated. Don't see the need for navboxes for every certain period in Thailand's history. All of these are primarily just clutter for listing every leader and institution that relates to the specific period. But these fall under template creep when there are other templates covering the scope for all the articles under the events section in all three navboxes. Template:History of Thailand navbox can probably cover the scope. But these navbox is broader for its subject matter. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 20:23, 9 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I get your point, but why can't the main history navbox and Template:History of Thailand sidebar be enough? At least for larger or more main history of Thailand subjects. Even if these two templates don't link to the articles one is reading, they are normally added due to their relation to the broader history-related subject. I don't see any other templates like this for say Cambodia, U.S., U.K. And there should be consistency with these types of navboxes. If the history of one country is going to be covered in this way, then the same should apply to all other nations as well. For Template:Rattanakosin and Template:Thonburi, I wasn't aware until your post. But I think they qualify for deletion for the same reason. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 20:21, 10 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Tim1965:, it's not an unused template, and if only someone had the simple courtesy to reach out to the creator, I would've readily fixed that. And you can't make that your argument when you yourself are removing instances of its use. ɱ (talk) 17:19, 18 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I did not make the "not used" argument. I ran a search on Wikipedia to see how many times the source is used. Four: List of mayors of Columbus, Ohio (a "For Further Reading" suggestion), Green Lawn Cemetery (Columbus, Ohio), AIA Columbus, and White–Haines Building. There potentially may be a fifth if a page moves from a sandbox to article-space. It seems inappropriate to create a template that has to be maintained in order to handle just four citations across some 6.5 million articles. Just how many contributors are going to do a search to discover this template among the tens of thousands out there? Or is someone going to set up a bot to do auto-replacement? - Tim1965 (talk) 13:05, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Second Ladies and Gentlemen of Colombia

Propose merging Template:Second Ladies and Gentlemen of Colombia with Template:Second Spouse.
Identical templates used for the same people – created by the same editor who clearly got into a tangle with the naming of the navbox and decided to create a second version without deleting the first one. Would probably lean to keeping "Second Ladies and Gentlemen of Colombia" as the name of the merged template because this is the one already used in the articles, although frankly none of the included subjects are notable and should probably be deleted or merged to the articles for their spouses, ultimately making this template redundant. But that's for another discussion. Richard3120 (talk) 19:40, 16 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:The Fellowship of the Ring/Plot summary

((The Fellowship of the Ring/Plot summary))'s sole use is to store article text, namely the plot summary for The Fellowship of the Ring, for the purposes of transcluding onto the main FOTR and LOTR pages (in direct contravention to WP:TG). The template's task doesn't need a template; a labeled section transclusion from the FOTR article to elsewhere will also do the same thing without one. I thus propose to substitute the template back onto The Fellowship of the Ring, delete this template, and carry out the desired transclusion as a labeled transclusion. — Ceso femmuin mbolgaig mbung, mellohi!

Template:Boris Johnson cabinet 5 vertical

These templates are used in only a single article each. They each encode a table which is better served as directly editable within the article itself instead of sequestering it into the template space. It is highly unlikely for this template to be used on any other articles. Per WP:TMP, the template namespace should not be used to store article content.

A recent TFD deleted another template in this tree. Out of over 100 templates in the parent category Category:Cabinet templates, only these templates in Category:British cabinet templates are used in this idiosyncratic single-use way.

That is correct, I am unlikely to use this particular template elsewhere, but I do not know how to make a reusable version of this.
I do not think templates should always be reusable. This one combines the subpages ((SWASTHA articles)), ((SWASTHA articles/top)), and ((SWASTHA articles/list)), and I do not find it simple to substitute three pages into one. Also if someone wanted to copy this model then I think the multiple pages make this easier for copy and adapt.
I have other designs for language templates such as on meta:Wiki99/LGBT+ which uses one version, and meta:Module:Wiki99 which is another version I am developing.
The point of these templates is to have a way to coordinate multilingual cross-wiki projects. Usually Meta is the place for that and maybe it will be in the future, but I think it is okay to have an example in English Wikipedia to experiment with the idea and show it off.

User:Shaav/HPTransBloomsburyCount

If this is needed, then Template:Harry Potter translation count should be created where with a parameter you get the wanted value. So something like ((Harry Potter translation count|total)). There is certainly no need for 3 templates for this and a user page should not used here at all. Gonnym (talk) 11:01, 14 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

If I understand you correctly, you have two objections: 1) that I created these under my user page and 2) that I created three of them rather than integrating them all into a single parameterized template. Is that correct?
My thought process, I guess, was that creating something so very specific under 'Template:' was inappropriate since it has no generalizable use to any other article. It is quite useful for this specific article as these numbers are repeated multiple times throughout the text and it has been common that when the numbers need to be updated, instances are overlooked creating confusing inconsistencies. Given that transcludes from User: are not banned (obviously) and even acknowledged in the first paragraph of Wikipedia:Template_namespace from my (admittedly probably imperfect understanding) it seemed that my user page was more appropriate than cluttering up Template: with something of such limited use. I'm still not exactly sure why it's a problem.
With respect to three vs. one template: I understand that objection within Template:; I'm not sure why it would matter within User:. I was preferring to make them as simple and editable as possible, should someone else besides me be trying to update them.
Nonetheless, I'm happy to move it to Template: if it isn't just going to get flagged and deleted from there as well... Shaav (talk) 21:11, 14 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Also, the section of the page that uses these transcludes has been largely rendered illegible—can I at least add "|type=inline" to the Tfd template? I have no experience with these templates so I'm not sure if me adding that after the fact is problematic. Shaav (talk) 21:30, 14 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You are correct in understanding my argument. Gonnym (talk) 07:37, 16 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
  • Keep After doing a lot of reading and trying my best to understand the guidelines and issues here, I believe this is a perfectly legitimate and appropriate use.
    1. These are User: space pages that do not meet. If they were not transcluded to Main: would we be having this conversation? The issue is not about deletion, it's about the appropriateness of transcluding them into a Main: article.
    2. There is no a priori reason that User: space pages cannot be transcluded to Main: space. It obviously is permitted despite the fact there is the capacity to prohibit it. Wikipedia:Template namespace explicitly says: "Although the Template namespace is used for storing most templates, it is possible to transclude and substitute from other namespaces, and so some template pages are placed in other namespaces, such as the User namespace." I have not found any specific guidelines as to when it is or is not appropriate to use transcludes from other namespaces—if it exists and I haven't found it, please do point it out.
    3. These obviously don't belong in Template: space because they are not generally useful. That doesn't mean that they are not useful—they are useful for Harry Potter in translation and specifically to me as a major contributor and the one who has historically maintained this number.
    4. User: space is appropriate given that the primary utility of the templates are to an individual contributor on a specific page. The use is inline with Wikipedia:User pages guidelines which include Useful links, tools and scripts—I consider this a tool that I use to make editing these numbers more transparent. Yet, they remain universally editable and could be easily replaced if I vanished.
    5. To @Pppery's point: the fact that the numbers have not changed since I created these templates to assist in maintaining the article does not mean that the templates are not fulfilling their stated purpose, nor that the numbers don't change or will not change in the future. The changes are unpredictable; however, I can say that the total has changed nine times in the last five years—just not since 2020 (the article includes a list of those changes for anyone wishing to verify that). The 'Lack of use' argument for deletion includes the caveat: and has no likelihood of being used so the fact that it hasn't needed to change yet is not a valid reason for deleting it.
    6. The fact that these are extremely simple templates that don't fit the prototypical template model—content that is used across multiple articles—and instead content that is used frequently within a single article does not delegitimize them. They make it easier to ensure that the content of an article remains internally consistent as it is updated and fits well within the computational principal of only updating changing data in a single location and referring to it elsewhere.

      • TFD is Templates for discussion, which is what we're doing here. Historically, the primary use for transcluding pages from userspace is to cut down on the number of userboxes in templatespace. I don't think there's a broad consensus to allow transclusion from userspace for anything else. Axem Titanium (talk) 20:30, 15 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
      • The relevant guideline that you are missing is Wikipedia:User pages#Userspace and mainspace, which says "encyclopedia articles should never link to or transclude any userspace pages".

These are single-use templates, contravening both H:T, that templates are for repetitive material that might need to show up on a larger number of articles or pages, and WP:TG, that templates should not normally be used to store article text, as this makes it more difficult to edit the content. These are the same reasons why Template:Results of the 2022 Australian federal election (House of Representatives) was deleted. Template:Transclusion was similarly deleted, as it was used to justify their existence, as they are used alledegly "to avoid disruption and unnecessary server load" (which were rejected in TfD:Transclusion).

@Guarapiranga I randomly selected 3 templates and they each had 3 transclusions. Please explain what your nomination proposes to do with these as they aren't single-use. Gonnym (talk) 04:26, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Similarly to what you recommended regarding the Template:Results of the 2022 Australian federal election (House of Representatives), Gonnym, they should be subst'd and deleted, as indeed it was to Results of the 2022 Australian federal election (House of Representatives), and from there section transcluded to the 2022 Australian federal election article. For instance, in the case of Template:World Championships in Athletics medalists in women's 5000 metres, it should be subst'd to the List of World Athletics Championships medalists (women), and from there the section transcluded to the 5000 metres and 5000 metres at the World Athletics Championships articles, so as not to hinder editors's ability to edit the table (with Visual Editor, especially). But you're right, Gonnym, single-use is not exactly what they are. — Guarapiranga  04:41, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Book

This is currently just a wrapper of a subst version of Template:Saved book. However, if you look at its current transclusions, such as at Alphonse Daudet and Lycée Michelet (Vanves), you'll see that the usages there are incorrectly used as citations (which are broken). Books are created much less now so there is no real need to have a wrapper template. Additionally, this seems to have either gone of out sync with the main template or completely changed at some point as the parameters in the documentation aren't supported at all. Making this a red link will help correcting these citations when they happen (redirecting is less ideal as "book" could reasonably be more than just a citation template).
