Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Holding cell
< Wikipedia:Templates for discussion
This page has a backlog that requires the attention of willing editors.
Please remove this notice if and when the backlog is cleared.
If process guidelines are met, move templates to the appropriate subsection here to prepare to delete. Before deleting a template, ensure that it is not in use on any pages (other than talk pages where eliminating the link would change the meaning of a prior discussion), by checking Special:Whatlinkshere for '(transclusion)'. Consider placing {{Being deleted}} on the template page.
There are several tools that can help when implementing TfDs. Some of these are listed below.
Closing discussions
The closing procedures are outlined at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Closing instructions.
To review
Templates for which each transclusion requires individual attention and analysis before the template is deleted.
To merge
Templates to be merged into another template.

Note Pending Redesign RfC robertsky (talk) 18:51, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
I've closed the RfC. Mdaniels5757 (talk) 15:15, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
At this point this is ready for large scale replacement. I said a while ago that I could do it but due to me being quite busy IRL this seems unlikely to get done in a timely manner. If you feel like doing a large scale replacement job feel free to take this one. --Trialpears (talk) 17:34, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
Trialpears, what large-scale replacement? I (foolishly?) jumped into this rabbit hole, and have been in it for over a day now. This is a very complex merge; I've got the documentation diff to show fewer differences, but there's still more to be done. – wbm1058 (talk) 15:04, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
To convert
Templates for which the consensus is that they ought to be converted to some other format are put here until the conversion is completed.
2020 October 22Loc ( links | transclusions | talk | doc | sandbox | testcases )
This one has 572 that match insource:/\{\{loc\}\}/, with no template parameters. Those seem like a straightforward conversion to {{Country study}}. Then the remaining 110ish templates with parameters could be cleaned up separately. Could probably get AWB in bot mode to do the 572. Does that sound like a good idea? Should I try to get a bot flag to help with that? –Novem Linguae (talk) 06:47, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
I can get it, just never had the time or inclination to pick apart the various uses. I've set up a tracking category to find the non-parameter uses, so once that populates I should be able to knock it out fairly quick. Primefac (talk) 21:49, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
I worked a bit on this a while ago, probably going a bit beyond what is strictly necessary when filling in parameters. It's worth noting that (countarary to the docs) that Kazakhstan and many other countries don't have their own country studies but are combined to something like Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan or Indian Ocean : five island countries. Also worth noting that these were made between 1988 and 2015 meaning that you may have weird situations with both the Soviet Union and Russia having country studies and there being plenty of other former countries to consider. I've also seen quite a few already broken links. My point being that care should be taken to make sure the links are correct and point to the intended target. --Trialpears (talk) 22:03, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
I recommend using standard {{cite encyclopedia}} citations and converting these to footnotes (rather than generic endnotes) as we go. I have pre-made encyclopedia citations for all country studies, plus a page with comparisons using Earwig to the relevant country studies here: Wikipedia:WikiProject Library of Congress Country Studies/Reference fixing. Example edit here. Calliopejen1 (talk) 17:37, 20 May 2021 (UTC)
To substitute
Templates for which the consensus is that all instances should be substituted (e.g. the template should be merged with the article or is a wrapper for a preferred template) are put here until the substitutions are completed. After this is done, the template is deleted from template space.
None currently
To orphan
These templates are to be deleted, but may still be in use on some pages. Somebody (it doesn't need to be an administrator, anyone can do it) should fix and/or remove significant usages from pages so that the templates can be deleted. Note that simple references to them from Talk: pages should not be removed. Add on bottom and remove from top of list (oldest is on top).
2021 May 31 :Category:Exclude in print ( links | transclusions | talk | doc | sandbox | testcases )
Module:Asbox#L-167 if I'm not mistaken is where the stub pages come from. --Gonnym (talk) 15:00, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
The noprint class should probably be added instead though. Don't have time to check on it rn though. --Trialpears (talk) 15:13, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
Just to quote the edit summary, Listing this here so it doesn't get forgotten about, since it was part of the TfD (even though I think TfD is the wrong venue for categories). While TfD is the wrong place for category nominations, categories can be added to a nomination if said category would be eligible for G8 deletion (i.e. categories dependent on a now-deleted or changed template). In this particular instance, its inclusion in the Asbox module indicates that {{Hide in print}} and/or {{Only in print}} were not the only templates that were populating the category, and thus it is not G8'able. Primefac (talk) 15:47, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
I can nominate at CfD if so desired. I will quote my relevant comment from the discussion here as to why I found it sensible to include it in the TfD nomination.
I am well aware of the rules for what should go where but choose to ignore them in this case. I believe the more technical audience would have more opinions on Category:Exclude in print and that it would be unnecessary to fork this discussion to two places. If you think there would be an actual benefit in nominating it at CfD I'm happy to withdraw it and renominate it. For the time being I've dropped a note at WT:CFD in case the CfD crowd is interested.
This got no response and I presumed it was considered fine. --Trialpears (talk) 15:54, 11 June 2021 (UTC)
I remved the cat from asbox yesterday. If there are no objections in the next few days I will proceed with removal. Otherwise I'll start a CfD. --Trialpears (talk) 11:51, 24 July 2021 (UTC)
Ready for deletion
Templates for which consensus to delete has been reached, and for which orphaning has been completed, can be listed here for an administrator to delete. Remove from this list when an item has been deleted. See also {{Deleted template}}, an option to delete templates while retaining them for displaying old page revisions.
None currently
