Template:Allies (DELETED)

This template is not a template and has been made obsolete by Template:Faction Diplomacy. This "template" is in use on most faction pages, but since that's simply transcribed wiki markup this page is useless. We will need to replace usage occurances of this "template" with Template:Faction Diplomacy

-- Eyvind (talkcontrib) 04:40, 24 February 2009 (MST)

I wouldn't say it's obsolete by Template:Faction Diplomacy, as the new template is far too large to be properly used for every NPC faction in my opinion (iirc it was intended for player factions anyways). I would not replace the old one with this one - the old one is doing a fine job and I don't think it would look good if we had full rep sheets on every page that make up 80% of it's content. Template:Faction Diplomacy is nice, but I think it should one be used on player faction pages.:: Nathrael :: Talklink Datalink Commlink

Let me repeat myself, it is not a template. The wiki markup has just been copied to the different pages. Therefore it makes no practical difference if we delete the template. Also, I agree with you that Template:Faction Diplomacy has a tendency to become too large. But to be fair, so does Template:Allies if used in the same way. It is a problem with both solutions. To fix this problem, I have proposed a way of using Template:Faction Diplomacy in a better way on Template talk:Faction Diplomacy. As far as design goes, Template:Faction Diplomacy has more potential to be a universal diplomacy template, so for the sake of consistency I highly recommend that we focus on improving it rather than using multiple separate templates. -- Eyvind (talkcontrib) 09:40, 28 February 2009 (MST)

I originally intended this to do the things that the Template:Faction Diplomacy does. This was created before the parser functions were installed on the wiki. It was going to work inside another template, in a psuedo-collapsible allies list. The new one does the job fine. The only thing I would mention is that the New one does not need to list all factions. It will depend on the faction that the New one is used on. I support this being deleted.

Nothing is using this template anymore - should be okay to delete it. --Alex 13:15, 18 February 2010 (MST)

Category:Kirche die Grunnen Alders followers (DELETED JULY 09)

Not only horribly misspelled (it should be "Kirche des Grünen Adlers") but also, in my opinion, not really necessary; I think for now, until the Wiki grows, a "People" category is more than enough. Nathrael 03:12, 17 March 2009 (MDT)

I don't see a problem with having more categories, even if they are a bit under-used. In my opinion, this category should be placed under Category:People and the name fixed, but not deleted. On the same note, various other people related categories (Category:Faction Leaders and Other Notable Player Characters, and several more, see Special:Categories) should be made subcategories of Category:People -- Eyvind (talkcontrib) 10:07, 21 April 2009 (MDT)

Table:Very Heavy Fighters (DELETED)

Unnecessary prefix used, moved to main namespace. --TsaryuTalk 16:31, 22 June 2009 (MDT)

This table originally acted as a type of template so it could be sisplayed on multiple pages and only have to be updated on one. One of the other display locations had recently been reverted for some reason. I have corrected this issue. If you know of a better way to accomplish this I am open to suggestions. Tazuras 17:51, 22 June 2009 (MDT)
I'm also interested to see if this works. I'd like for this to be kept for awhile to see how it goes. ~Chovynz~ (BlabsEgo) 05:56, 24 June 2009 (MDT)

Admiral_(Kriegsmarine) (DELETED DEC 09)

I have no idea if this is useful or not. Praetyre did it. Seems more like a dictionary than anything useful for a wiki.It seems TOO in-universe/RP. ~Chovynz~ (BlabsEgo) 07:42, 24 June 2009 (MDT)

I think it's fine, although it shouldn't be a separate page. Maybe merge it into the Rheinland Military page under a Ranks subsection, or create a Ranks of the Rheinland Military page. ~Nathrael Talklink Datalink Commlink


Großadmiral (DELETED)

RWK Krieg (DELETED)

As most of the above. This isn't useful (Kane isn't even around anymore, and if he was this would still need complete and total reformatting...) and doesn't contribute to anything. Oh, and as a member of the RM the above four pages (various ranks Praetyre made up) are years out of date and were never really used in the first place. Delete them. --Sovereign 22:18, 31 October 2009 (MDT)

Blank. --Eyvind (Talk) 04:41, 28 January 2010 (MST)

Jefferson Richmond (DELETED)

Practically blank. Does not seem to have any use or useful information. --Eyvind (Talk) 04:42, 28 January 2010 (MST)

I agree, I think that page should be deleted. There's no reason to keep it.~Nathrael Talk Contributions

Category:Years (DELETED)

We will be using pages for each century rather than pages for each year, and a centuries category to accompany it. -- Eyvind (Talk) 23:36, 30 January 2010 (MST)

We will be using pages for each century rather than pages for each year. -- Eyvind (Talk) 23:36, 30 January 2010 (MST)

Only being used by one page. --Alex 10:17, 16 February 2010 (MST)

Puerto Rican Rift (DELETED)

Template:Enemies (DELETED)

See Template:Allies - we get rid of that, and we might aswell get rid of this aswell.

Alex 21:05, 16 February 2010 (MST)

Nothing is using this template anymore - should be okay to delete it. --Alex 13:16, 18 February 2010 (MST)

Alfred Wagner (DELETED)

Page was blank. -- Alex 19:43, 13 February 2010 (MST)

Azai Family (DELETED)

The owning player (http://discoverygc.com/forums/index.php?showuser=41136) was banned from Discovery (see http://discoverygc.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=57126). Alex 19:33, 15 February 2010 (MST)

Deletion proposition template was removed. Giving this a month, if nothing is said by the owner the deletion proposition template goes back on. --Alex 10:18, 16 February 2010 (MST)
The guy was perma'd, and the article isn't worth keeping for historical reasons either. I'd say we should give it the boot (and don't forget to delete the images as well). ~Nathrael Talk Contributions

Unknown Planet (RESOLVED)

Barely any content on this page, and not using the correct templates. Virtually useless if you ask me... --Alex 11:19, 22 February 2010 (MST)

Made into a disambiguation page to the three actual "Unknown Planet" pages. ~cshake (talk) (sysop) 20:13, 24 March 2010 (MDT)


Template:Bought & Template:Sold (DELETED & RESOLVED)

This template was replaced by Template:Imports Alex 14:09, 16 February 2010 (MST)
This template was replaced by Template:Exports Alex 14:11, 16 February 2010 (MST)

While your templates look better, they're nothing but a simple recolor - next time, please just edit the existing templates instead of creating new pages. If you want to try out stuff before adding them to the wiki, feel free to create yourself a Sandbox page.~Nathrael Talk Contributions
Huh? I didn't make them. --Alex 08:10, 28 February 2010 (MST)
I did. Ages ago. Alex simply put the deletion tag on them since they are now superceded. ~Chovynz~ (BlabsEgo) (Wiki Admin) 19:14, 13 May 2010 (MDT)

Faction:Kusari Naval Forces/userbox (DELETED)

We already have Template:Faction:Kusari Naval Forces/userbox, no need for this. --Alex 17:52, 26 February 2010 (MST)

Corsair Weaponry (DELETED)

  • There is not an Outcast Weaponary page, or anything like this.
  • There are the individual weapon pages which are already inside the Corsairs category.
