Unused tennis performance timelines

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 move to userspace Plastikspork -OE(talk) 22:50, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

unused, but I see that there is discussion at WT:Tennis. I would suggest moving these to project/userspace until there is consensus to deploy them. if they are deployed, there is no reason to keep the stats in a separate template. you could just put the tables in the article directly, so no need for a template-space version. this is how it's done for Module:Sports table. Frietjes (talk) 23:51, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep: A tennis performance timeline may appear in two places: the player's main article, and the player's career statistics article, e.g., Roger Federer and Roger Federer career statistics. These tables have complex calculations of numbers that duplicating tables incurs maintenance overhead and risks inconsistency, so it remains appropriate that statistics are coded at one single place. Then, template options can select relevant parts of the table to display in respective articles. Since these are subpages of the parent template Template:Tennis performance timeline, which is still under development, I see no need to move them elsewhere. Chinissai (talk) 02:11, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
    • Chinissai, for tables used in two places, we have WP:LST. for example, see UEFA Euro 1996#Group C which is transcluded from UEFA Euro 1996 Group C. Frietjes (talk) 12:57, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
      • From what I understand, LST doesn't work for these timelines. We need to represent a subset of the data in the main article, but the full table in the statistics article, using the same input source. LST doesn't allow this customization. Chinissai (talk) 14:01, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
        • Chinissai, you can definitely do that with an LST transclusion. the easiest method would be to wrap a particular parameter value inside of a . or, there are other more sophisticated methods using the frame and parent in LUA. or, you can do what we do with module:sports table. for example, check the table in 2016-17 Borussia Dortmund season#International Champions Cup which is transcluded from the table in 2016 International Champions Cup#China. that method uses , which again doesn't require a separate template for the table. Frietjes (talk) 22:33, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
          • I tried two things in the past few days: using LST on existing contents in top-players articles, and attempting to use LST with the performance timeline template. The LST usage on existing contents is being rejected right away as having no consensus, although some articles started to adopt that. On using the template with LST, it can be challenging and error-prone at times to control which part of the source article to be transcluded. I am worried that LST would be too complicated for the tennis community to adopt. Given my impression that the tennis community is reluctant to changes, I would propose that we keep the traditional template transclusion as an option until we have a clearer way forward. Chinissai (talk) 12:12, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete or at least move to userspace. Based on the discussions at the tennis wikiproject, there is no consensus in actually using these templates versus using the tables that are currently being used. Adamtt9 (talk) 16:07, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
    • Not having consensus does not mean it is not likely to be used. According to deletion policy, this does not result in template deletion. Chinissai (talk) 12:12, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
      • But that's not what I said. I said there is no consensus to actually use the template, which would mean userspace until there is consensus to use them. Adamtt9 (talk) 16:02, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
        • I think we agree on that point, but the template deletion policy does not requires deletion if templates are not used. Chinissai (talk) 22:32, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Userfy or delete - While there is no consensus that doesn't mean that if there are tweaks it "might" be usable. So userfying a couple of them is probably best, while deleting the vast majority. Also, while there are usually two performance tables for a player, one is a tiny version that only covers the 4 major tournaments. The 2nd table covers those 4 majors plus all the other tournaments and stats. Fyunck(click) (talk) 08:59, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
    • Not sure how to interpret While there is no consensus that doesn't mean that if there are tweaks it "might" be usable. At any rate, duplicating parts of a complex table risks inconsistency and adds maintenance overhead. Chinissai (talk) 12:12, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
      • And now I see you have just mass implemented them without consensus to do so. When I click on the section to edit i can't even find how to edit the table of info. That can't be good for new editors. Fyunck(click) (talk) 18:21, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
        • Not sure what you are talking about. Doesn't seem to have anything to do with the template... Chinissai (talk) 22:32, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete These templates should never have been created on large scale before a consensus is reached on the matter. I'm certain the new coding for the tables can be used, but I don't think stand-alone templates are needed. The complete table can be used in the career stats pages of the players, whereas the shorter tables can be transcluded from there into the players' main articles.Tvx1 17:56, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
    • They are being created to serve as examples on how to use templates. Without them, I am sure the tennis community will never be convinced of its usefulness. Let's not jump the gun and delete them until we actually reach a consensus of how to use (or not use) the template. Chinissai (talk) 22:32, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
      • That's nonsense. We don't need hundreds of templates just as examples to verify that it works. One or two is enough. And actually, sandboxes should be used for testing, not live templates.Tvx1 23:47, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
        • True...we aren't going to use individual templates for each player. The actual data will be implemented at the player article using a standard generic template that has flexibility to adjust to our various players. None of these created templates with their extra column will get the go ahead imho, and we certainly don't need 125 of them used for examples. Fyunck(click) (talk) 20:31, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was I've G7ed it. It remained unused, after creation through this discussion, almost certainly because I never followed up with creating the category and process it would attach to, and listing it at defaultlogic.com Resource: Revision deletion, but, in any event, if we were to have some form of template for this purpose, it should probably emulate {{Copyvio-revdel}}, rather than asking for a talk page posting of requested revisions to delete.Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 21:39, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

It might be better if the geography bits of {{ConvertAbbrev}} were split off into {{Country abbreviation}}/{{iso2country}} and the language bits were split off into {{ISO 639 name}}/{{iso2language}}/{{lang2iso}}. The group of templates generally seems like a mess and could use some more Luafication instead of being mostly dependent on massive switch parser functions and template names.

Keep.These are the only 2 sports stations in Rhode Island & both are ESPN affiliates anyway.Stereorock (talk) 20:58, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
AddendumYes, both R.I. sports stations are ESPN now, but that may not always be the case. Another station may flip to Fox Sports Radio, for example, making the redirect wrong.Stereorock (talk) 21:10, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
a redirect doesn't always mean "equal to", it frequently means "subset of". it's astonishing that you have never seen a redirect after a merger. a redirect also allows you to revive a template without going through WP:DRV or WP:REFUND. of course, once ESPN flips from a sports network, we will have to fix everything. Frietjes (talk) 21:41, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Redirect per Frietjes. "These two titles are exactly synonymous with each other" is not the only valid reason for a redirect; "this is a subset of a larger topic, without sufficient numbers to justify being spun off separately" is a perfectly valid reason too. When we're talking about just two radio stations total, of which both belong to both sets, then it's a case of creeping templatitis to have two navboxes for them. Even if one or both of them do later flip to Fox Sports, that still wouldn't be a reason for two separate navboxes to coexist, when one navbox could still list the stations by affiliation. If there were 50 sports radio stations in Rhode Island splitting between the two affiliations, then separate navboxes would make sense -- but it's not necessary for just two stations that comprise the totality of both navboxes. Bearcat (talk) 18:20, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

Exactly, so why even bother making the extra future work for ourselves? They're fine as they are, being separate.Stereorock (talk) 21:27, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
Because there aren't ever going to be 50 sports radio stations in Rhode Island, barring some radical restructuring of the entire United States in which Rhode Island takes over all of New England and a big chunk of upstate New York? Bearcat (talk) 23:55, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
Who needs 50? At what point is the cutoff for what is "useful" & what is "superfluous"? Does a Providence-licensed station have to flip? The templates do provide a navigational function: they give the reader a choice of 2 sports stations & another which shows the ESPN affiliates in Rhode Island-1 fulltime & 1 parttime. You never know, there could be a 3rd station flipping formats at some point (not that I know anything about a pending format flip, but 790 & 920 in Providence have anemic 6+ ratings). What happens in 1180 in Hope Valley flips to ESPN for the New London market, or to Fox Sports Radio? This theoretical flip would impact both templates in that they would no longer contain the all of the same stations. If there were *ZERO* sports or ESPN stations in R.I., then I could see with doing away with the templates, but the number isn't 0. There *are* stations which broadcast sports & there *are* stations which broadcast ESPN. What is the minimum number of stations at which point we keep the templates? If it's 30, there are only around 40 stations in Rhode Island, so practically every template of R.I. radio would have to be gotten rid of. What about the R.I. N.P.R. template? There are only 4 frequencies of N.P.R. in R.I., & 3 of them ARE THE SAME (RINPR, on 88.1, 91.5, & 102.7), the other one is a repeater of a classical music service out of Boston & only may count because WCRB is owned by WGBH's parent company, which is an N.P.R. affiliate. Why not get rid of the R.I. N.P.R. stations template too? It's far less useful than these 2 sports templates in terms of navigation.Stereorock (talk) 01:38, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

When we're talking about just three radio stations total, we don't need two separate overlapping navboxes for them -- if there were 50 sports radio stations in Vermont of which 20 were ESPN-affiliated, then maybe these would both be warranted, but if we're talking about three and two it's a unnecessary case of creeping templatitis. Bearcat (talk) 18:13, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
Disagree: the templates perform different functions. The ESPN one identifies which ones are full-time & which are part-time; the sports one just identifies which stations are sports stations. Clearly, they have different reasons for existing. Also, the sports template is incomplete.Stereorock (talk) 21:51, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
The different information can easily be copied into the other template, because there aren't enough stations involved for a formatting change to be disruptive at all. Bearcat (talk) 23:59, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep: As an Associate Justice, Justice Gorsuch will be writing opinions and, I thought, should have an opinions template like his eight colleagues.

Other Justices' templates have a similar bevy of red links to their lower-court opinions.) Aaronjbaylis (talk) 16:44, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep per Aaronjbaylis, it seems pointless to delete this now only to recreate it again after October when we have a second term list for him (and a third, and a fourth...remember, it's a lifetime appointment...). The COA redlinks should eventually be filled in, though that hasn't yet been accomplished for any other justice yet either. If everyone thinks that's an issue for now that section can just be commented out in the template until the content is there. postdlf (talk) 19:46, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
The purpose of a navbox is to NAVigate, which right now it doesn't. When there are enough links in the box where it can navigate, then it can be refunded. It was deleted for a reason in May. Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 05:42, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
But here we have a template that we know is going to expand. It exists now, so that infrastructure we know will be needed is there for the future addition of links and deleting it now just means wasted time recreating it later.

  • Delete - This odd template was created nine years ago by an inexperienced editor (someone with 47 live edits over the course of 10 years). The template is linked from an equally odd disambiguation page (Deadly earthquakes). I've been very active with WP:Earthquakes for the past five years and I don't use either of these items.

  • Keep or convert into actual page: This shows unique information of the deadliest earthquakes in each state. It should either be kept as a template or converted into an actual page, with a page title like "List of deadliest earthquakes by U.S. state" or similar title.

WP:Earthquakes has around 150 lists as it is and set-matching lists are continuing to be created regularly. I would argue that we probably don't need another non-standard (one off) list when only 1/5 of US states have earthquake-related deaths. Dawnseeker2000 03:50, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
