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: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. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody!

Support - As nominator. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 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)

Support - Move them to the userspace. AWB can change all the links/transclusions following the move, I'm sure Cook me would be glad to help. --Aburnett(Talk) 02:59, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

I'm now using AWB and could do. I just need to know the new location. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 03:02, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I'd be glad to help. Would this include Signatures? ʞooɔ 03:09, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
If it does, then I Oppose --Aburnett(Talk) 03:14, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Uh, no it doesn't. I love the template system and with thousands of them, there's no going back. Smile Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 03:23, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, then I Support. ʞooɔ 03:25, 7 June 2010

Support - Especially since it is so easy to just use a userpage like a template... ajr 03:24, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Slap in the face moment - My Youtube template is still there?! and anyway i thought this was already spose to... Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 05:18, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Per above. It's not too hard to change it. Suppa chuppa Talk 05:23, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Support - I thought this was all ready the policy.Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 06:12, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Per others. bad_fetustalk 13:42, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Per all Slayer Timwac talk Fire cape.png 17:25, 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?   Swizz Talk   Events!   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. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 18:29, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Per all LordDarkPhantom 20:06, 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.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 00:07, June 8, 2010 (UTC) 

(Userbox Proposal and related discussion moved to Forum:Userbox Proposal) - I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 00:18, June 8, 2010 (UTC) 

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. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 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? Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 00:54, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
Probably. There's no reason to do a redirect. ʞooɔ 00:54, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
I just did a Make-list in AWB. It's only 93 pages we'd be changing. ʞooɔ 01:01, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
Well, first, are there others? Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 04:20, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
Not that I know of. Where can I look? ʞooɔ 04:23, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

I found all of those at Category:User templates...I don't know anywhere else besides the entire Template: namespace. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody!

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.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 17:50, June 9, 2010 (UTC) 
Can that be done with DPL? ʞooɔ 19:10, June 9, 2010 (UTC)
DPL? Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 01:17, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

AWB possible - It is possible to use AWB to do this; one can run a find/replace replacing {{Example with {{User:Bla/Example ajr 21:06, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

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) Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 01:14, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Would we include customized Welcome templates in this? And clan things? ʞooɔ 01:19, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Yea, cuz its just theirs and mostly likely no one else will use it. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 01:34, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
What "clan things"? Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 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, Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 05:30, June 10, 2010 (UTC

Comment - I believe that is the complete list. I went through the entire namespace and those are the ones who's name sounded personal. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 02:20, June 10, 2010 (UTC) (don't be deleting what I said Lol) Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 05:30, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

I may be wrong, just the ones who name sounded personal. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 05:32, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I've moved all I can. I can't touch the other 4, and redirects still need to be deleted whenever someone can. HaloTalk 05:43, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

Closed—Proposal will be implemented. Horsehead Talk 00:27, June 12, 2010 (UTC)
