April 11[edit]

Template:LDS-UK-States[edit]

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:LDS-Europe. Primefac (talk) 16:56, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

I've suggested the "membership statistics" article be merged into the main article, upon which this nav template would have 4 links in it. Even without that merger, this is a navbox for 5 links.

It's pretty clear that this navbox was created with inspiration from the one corresponding to US States (as evidenced in its name, which should really say "constituent countries" rather than "states"), but while it makes a lot of sense to have a navbox when there are 50 articles to navigate between, I don't think this applies to 4-5 articles, those can simply be listed in the individual articles' "See also" sections, which in fact on the main article they already are.

So, in summary, I would suggest deleting this navbox. I really don't see any legitimate need for it. Newbiepedian (talk · contribs · X! · logs) 18:20, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

I'm the one who made the template and I think it was in response to another user's concern that the country's church history pages were broken up into regions. I don't feel passionately about it though, and I'm fine with deleting it and adding See Also sections to the pages instead. Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 18:51, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

WP:INDISCRIMINATE template whose only apparent inclusion criterion is that the person is an Iranian photographer. Since Category:Iranian photographers already exists, however, there's no need for a navbox -- navboxes can be created for criteria that represent a distinction, such as the winners of a specific photography award, but are not created just to comprehensively replicate a category.

Incoherent and arbitrary navbox subject: time travel stories in Star Trek, the articles, the stories, aren't related to each other, beside the fact that they're time travel stories set in the same fictional universe. We don't have Star Trek love stories, Star Trek ethical dilemmas or Star Trek supernatural mysteries either. There's already Category:Star_Trek_time_travel_episodes. soetermans. ↑↑↓↓←→←→ B A TALK 15:23, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

  • Keep Time travel is a genre in science fiction, and articles that include this are usually noted in references for the television show. THanks Starspotter (talk) 15:47, 23 March 2018 (UTC)
Are you familiar with WP:NAVBOX? That time travel is a genre in science fiction in general is not the discussion here; we're talking about a navigational template about time travel stories in Star Trek; that's the subject of the template. Navboxes provide useful links to related subjects. {{Star Trek}} or {{Gene Roddenberry}} are coherent. The episodes listed aren't related to each other, beyond the fact that they're situated in the same fictional universe. That's not what navboxes are for. soetermans. ↑↑↓↓←→←→ B A TALK 12:12, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep, very interesting template. The relationship is in the title, Star Trek episodes related to time travel. Star Trek is a science fiction show, and the time-travel aspect of SciFi has a long and established history (unlike the proposed templates for love stories, ethical dilemmas, etc.). Giving the readers interested in time-travel in SciFi a quick guide to the time-travel episodes of Star Trek provides a useful service and research tool. Randy Kryn (talk) 03:24, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
Good Lord, how come you're not familiar with navboxes either? "Very interesting"? You're basically saying WP:ILIKEIT. Why are you assuming that readers would like to know more about other time travel stories? There's no overarching relation. This is not what navboxes are for, even if you find it interesting. And again, there's already a category listing. soetermans. ↑↑↓↓←→←→ B A TALK 19:25, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

Propose merging Template:EmmyAward ComedyWriting 1950s with Template:EmmyAward ComedyWriting.
No need for all these navboxes. Can easily be handled by a single navbox. Also, episode titles should be stripped out, the writer won the award, not the episode. The same way that {{Academy Award Best Original Screenplay}} does not include the films, just the writers, etc, etc... --woodensuperman 14:45, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Unused. I saw this template was unused back in January, just after it was created, and I have checked back several times since then to see if it had been brought into use, and it never has. I have not only checked that there are no transclusions, but also confirmed by searching for excerpts of its text that there are no articles on which it has been substed.
