RfD nom[edit]


This is almost an exact copy of {{mapframe}}, except only with less features, nor is it used in any articles and should be used in any articles. The main contributor of this template only has 10 edits on Wikivoyage, and I don't think this is even worth considering to be moved into anyone's userspace. An unapproved template, as well as a duplicate. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 06:23, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

  • Comment. It doesn't seem to be the template created by that user any more. The current version is by Andyrom75 ("main contributor" sounds silly, as each has made one edit, not based on the others' work). –LPfi (talk) 17:14, 1 September 2021 (UTC)
    @LPfi: I consider main contributor in terms of how many bytes they've added, and not how many edits to the page. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 01:46, 2 September 2021 (UTC)
    @SHB2000: The point is that few of those bytes are left in the version now discussed. –LPfi (talk) 08:07, 2 September 2021 (UTC)
  • Comment This is a special variant of Mapframe, adapted for use on Destinations. This used to have a map of the world, with all the destination articles marked. Then mapframe was altered to disable the layer= parameter, and some time later Mapframe2 was introduced to overcome this, and restore the map of destinations. In June 2021, the map again wasn't working and the template was removed from the article. See Talk:Destinations for a several discussions on this. Ideally this would be fixed and the template restored to Destinations. If the result is to delete this template, please move it to my user space, and update Talk:Destinations#Destinations_works_again. AlasdairW (talk) 22:29, 1 September 2021 (UTC)
We could undelete it if necessary, but the aforementioned page is reasonably effective at the current time. I still support deletion. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 01:40, 2 September 2021 (UTC)
Keep. It is clear that there is a reason for this template, and it is not making it difficult for walk-by contributors, as those don't need to edit Destinations, and there mapframe and mapframe2 are equally hard to grasp for non-regulars. If there is consensus on Talk:Destinations that we don't want this template, then it is probably unnecessary, but keep until then. –LPfi (talk) 08:12, 2 September 2021 (UTC)

Outcome: Kept, as LPfi and Alasdair have made good arguments on this template. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 07:18, 14 September 2021 (UTC)
