Wikipedia:XfD today

This page transcludes (or when this is not feasible, links to) all of the deletion debates opened today on the English-language Wikipedia, including articles, categories, templates, and others, as a convenience to XfD-watchers. Please note that because this material is transcluded, watchlisting this page will not provide you with watchlist updates about deletions; WP:DELT works best as a browser bookmark checked regularly.

Not my field, but I notice that references are entirely PR, as confirmed by the degree to which they repeat each other. Minor award listings only . DGG ( talk ) 00:18, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Template:Public holidays in the United States[edit]

Too long for a navbox. I suggest we either delete it or turn it into a list. --Bageense(disc.) 23:20, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

--CONVERT AND THEN DELETE. Much too long for a template, but the information could go into a list article. CONVERT TO LIST. THEN DELETE TEMPLATE.--Dthomsen8 (talk) 19:51, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

Dthomsen8, I will convert to a list when the discussion ends. So I ask someone to let me know when I can start working. --Bageense(disc.) 20:41, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for taking on that task. Admin will tell you when that happens.--13:34, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
  • move to article-space and reformat as a list article, this will preserve any edit history. Frietjes (talk) 14:39, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Strong Keep, is this serious? The template is fine in length, the sole complaint, that it is "too long", does not take WP:NAVBOX guideline language and the templates already accomplished coherent, orderly, and understandable arrangement into consideration. In other words, the navbox covers its topic well and coherently, as required by the guideline. And because the only nomination argument presented is that the navbox is "much too long for a template", this nomination should be immediately closed as Keep. Please also remember that templates, lists, and categories are totally separate subjects according to the guideline language. In fact, "turn it into a list" isn't a contributing reason to delete any template, per the well reasoned guideline language although I've seen it, as here, incorrectly used many times in these arguments. Sorry about the excess circus-like boldfacing but this discussion is at the closing point and could be closed any minute. Randy Kryn (talk) 17:13, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
The top of the Wikipedia:Categories, lists, and navigation templates page reads:
"This page in a nutshell: Categories, lists, and navigation templates are three different ways to group and organize articles. Although they each have their own advantages and disadvantages, each method complements the others.
I'd hope that regulars here would drop the 'turn into a list' argument forevermore after reading and understanding the governing Wikipedia guideline page. Randy Kryn (talk) 17:31, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep While the template is really large there's no problem with the topic. There should definetly be a main article here, but that should be solvable. --Trialpears (talk) 22:20, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion and clearer consensus.
