repurpose 10-1-0
I see that this template isn't used very much. I think there is some potential for this to be reused once again. I see this very similarly to {{image}} and {{More images}}, and we use these all the time. A lot of games are lacking media catalogs (see {{media nav}} and Category:Media by game). I propose that we revitalize this unused template, but mainly use it for main game pages, such as Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and Mario Party 8 for two examples of games missing such files. Here's what I had in mind:

Soundx.png It has been suggested that audio and/or video file(s) related to this article be uploaded.

Please upload all related music, sound effects, voice clips, or any videos for this section. See help how to get started.

Colors and look can be tweaked later. The wording has been changed. Also there is code to ask for specifics, just like {{More images}}. This would apply to lists like List of Mario Party media‎ because not all media is there (see Juke Box).

Why not just upload the files anyways that we know are missing? I am not always available and don't know what games qualify. Also, we need to track what is missing, which is what we do with the mentioned image templates, so that way someone else can get to it. Also, we have a lot of members unaware we are looking for these files, so we can bring attention to it better this way. If this proposal passes, Category:Articles that need more media needs to be created and MarioWiki:Maintenance#File maintenance needs to be updated.

If this template isn't worth the hassle of being revitalized, then it should be either be deleted or abandoned.

Repurpose[edit]

  1. Wildgoosespeeder (talk) Per proposal
  2. Luigi 64DD (talk) I think this is a good idea since there are many articles that don't have audio files which they should have. Per proposal.
  3. Yoshi the SSM (talk) Yeah. I can see this being used more often with a repurpose because it could exist with {{media table}}. By the way, if media table isn't on the article when it should, there should be some mention of it after this passes.
  4. Supermariofan67 (talk) Per all.
  5. Alex95 (talk) Seems like a good idea to me.
  6. Niiue (talk) Per all.
  7. TheFlameChomp (talk) Per all.
  8. Ultimate Mr. L (talk) I had no idea this template existed, but it would be quite useful *cough*SuperPaperMario*cough*
  9. Toadette the Achiever (talk) Per all.
  10. The Koopa Bro. (talk) Per all.

Do Nothing[edit]

  1. Wildgoosespeeder (talk) We shouldn't delete it yet.
