This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Template:Navbox guidelines page.

  • Be polite
  • Assume good faith
  • No personal attacks
  • Do not bite the newcomers
  • Respond in a mature manner
  • Be welcoming
  • Maintain civility at all times

Upgraded renamed and reorganized

As my edit summary says, for the changes I just performed, I:

  • Upgraded the source code to use {{Navbox}}. (Our last one! Except for {{Navboxseasonalevents}}, which is a bit of a special case.)
  • Used internally. (Many are still using {{Navbox list}}, those are slated to be updated but the changes are minor and not urgent.)
  • Split the long list into three categories
  • Dropped the link to Guideline: Diary Articles completely

It's those last two that some might find objectionable. The long list of titles just felt cluttered and disorganized, all splayed out in alpha order, so I tried to use the categories as a way to prioritize them a bit. But, that involved making subjective calls about those priorities, so I am certainly open to revisiting or eliminating the split.

Guideline: Diary Articles, OTOH... it's not just that I had no idea we even had such a guideline. Nor that there's still only one such article, in all this time. The reason I dropped it was mostly that, after reading it, I genuinely couldn't really see why we'd want to encourage more such articles! It just seems like overkill, IMHO. But if others disagree, it can easily be put back, and added to the slate for eventual redesign/update (hopefully). And anyway, the link was only dropped from the navbox. The page is still there, and still linked to from anywhere else it has been. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 07:33, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
