Forum:Move personal templates in the Template: namespace to the user's userspace
Sorry about the long name. I propose that we move all personal templates in the Template: namespace that aren't being used by other users other than the user stated in the name of the template to that user's userspace. I don't want them deleted. This does not include signatures under Template:Signatures.
This is a list of the ones I have found:
Template:600613 header Template:Cronos Dage stuff Template:Daves.not.here_Navigation Template:Dies irae/Quote o' the day Template:Dies irae/header Template:Doomed Soot/navbar Template:Farxodor/Zammywineprofit Template:Gragon 126/Sign Template:Greennave/Signature* Template:Hapi007/Goals Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Achievements Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Achievements/Halloween Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Archives Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Goals Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Goals/Halloween Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Info Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Info/Halloween Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Polls Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Polls/Halloween Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Quests Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Quests/Halloween Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Videos Template:Hapi007/NavBox/Videos/Halloween Template:Ilyas No Vandal Template:Ilyas User Page Template:Ilyas welcome Template:Infobox user Template:Lands01 99 Wish Template:Parsonsda/NavBox/Achievements Template:Parsonsda/NavBox/Goals Template:Parsonsda/NavBox/Info Template:Parsonsda/NavBox/Polls Template:Parsonsda/NavBox/Quests Template:Parsonsda/NavBox/Videos Template:Personal Tbc/Caduman Template:Rsozg Template:Rsozgs Template:Supertech1/sigsyntax Template:User zilenserz navigation box Template:User Jonavolaii Menu Template:User Tarikochi Headings Template:Userpwnedbyoj Template:Youdead00/(c) Template:Youdead00/Header
- Those that have been stricken through have been moved, but the redirects still need to be deleted.
- Those with "*" are questionable.
If you know of any more or stumble upon one, please add to the list.
Support - As nominator.01:37, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Comment - I didn't even know this was going on, but yeah. It should happen. It's not really that hard to do User:Templates/Name of Template. We should make these people do it in the next 72 hours. Or do it for them! *evil laugh*. I'm just kidding...but it should be done if they are personal templates. HaloTalk 01:40, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
- I'm now using AWB and could do. I just need to know the new location. 03:02, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
- Yeah, I'd be glad to help. Would this include Signatures? ʞooɔ 03:09, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Slap in the face moment - My Youtube template is still there?! and anyway i thought this was already spose to...05:18, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Support - Per above. It's not too hard to change it. Suppa chuppa 05:23, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Support - I thought this was all ready the policy.06:12, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Support - Per all17:25, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Support - Seems the obvious thing to do. Although, if this were to go ahead won't signatures need to be moved too?17:42, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
- Signatures are different. People are only allowed to have one. With templates, people could inconceivably keep as many as they want in template space. HaloTalk 17:45, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Support - We should have done this a long time ago, per all.18:29, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Support - Per all, templates in the userspace are no more difficult than regular templates to use, and more organised. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.
(Userbox Proposal and related discussion moved to Forum:Userbox Proposal) - I'm a regular user and I approve this message.
Request Closure - We should not have to discuss this as the templates should have been in the user's userspace to start with, considering that templates can be from any namespace. Having any discussion over this is really bureaucratic inefficiency.23:30, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
- Before it is closed, we need to decide whether we are going to move the templates for people, or ask them to move, and then move if they don't. (Unless that's already been decided and I'm out of it-entirely possibly-in which case, just go ahead and close.) HaloTalk 23:32, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
- Also are we deleting the old location?
00:54, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
- Probably. There's no reason to do a redirect. ʞooɔ 00:54, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
- Well, first, are there others? 04:20, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
- Also are we deleting the old location?
I found all of those at Category:User templates...I don't know anywhere else besides the entire Template: namespace.
- If you can, search for anything in the templatespace that is not transcluded to anything besides the userspace, the user talkspace, and other templates falling into the same category. Hopefully, this should eliminate signatures (Yew Grove) and many userboxes (Userbox Help). I don't know if AWB has a way to do it, though. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.
- Yes it is easy to do, all is we need is the go ahead and a list of those that are being moved (hopefully more than just my list) 01:14, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
- Yea, cuz its just theirs and mostly likely no one else will use it. 01:34, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
- What "clan things"?
01:39, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
- Template:Userbox/Darkestforcesclan. Btw, do you think you got all of them? 178 pages total on AWB, though I suppose some of those are duplicates. ʞooɔ 04:57, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
- And I don't really think we need to notify these people before hand. We could send a message on their talk pages saying Template:Blahblah has been moved to User:Example/Blahblah. ʞooɔ 05:10, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
- Sound good to me, 05:30, June 10, 2010 (UTC
- I may be wrong, just the ones who name sounded personal. 05:32, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
