Template talk:Vacation

From the Super Mario Wiki

If I recall correctly, we don't have templates just for users. Should this be deleted?

Do you have a reason to say no? I think it should be deleted. Very few people seem to use it anyway. Fawfulfury65
Only one person uses it. To me, this seems really useless. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Alot of people use it. and we do have a another template. Gone template? ring a bell? GalladeBack.pngGalladeBladesGallade2.png
Two people isn't a lot. And only one person uses the gone template. There's no point to having these templates. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Maybe users just don't know about it. I think we should keep it. If y'all care about deleting it so much make a TPP out of it. MarioSuperSluggersPianta.PNG Bowser's lumaParatroopa NSMB artwork.png

Delete Template:Vacation[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

don't delete 11-14

Really? A notice template for users only? If is mainly user oriented, I say we should delete. And if you really want a template like this, I suggest you make it yourself in your userpage. If you can make it yourself in your userpage, then I say this template is useless.

Delete[edit]

  1. BabyLuigiOnFire (talk) There's really no reason to have this template if you can make it yourself. And notice templates should be just mainspace only.
  2. Mario4Ever (talk) Per proposal.
  3. LeftyGreenMario (talk) Although it is funny, it doesn't help the wiki in any way. Besides, we can make our own templates, right?
  4. Mariomario64 (talk) A few days back, I was actually thinking of making a proposal or something to delete this, since it seems kinda useless. Per BLOF and LGM.
  5. Bop1996 (talk) My initial reaction went something like, "What about all those users that are using this template?" After I used the "What Links Here" button however, I discovered that the only user using it is Walkazo, and she's returning before the deadline of this TPP... So yeah, I think there is not a good reason to keep it.
  6. Reddragon19k (talk) Lose it! Per all.
  7. Zero777 (talk) It shouldn't even be asked, per all.
  8. Arend (talk) Hardly anyone uses it. Even if the opposers win, I bet no one (of them) will use it after all.
  9. Mariomaster228 (talk) It isn't necessary. Per all.
  10. Mpeng (talk)How often does it even get used? Per all.
  11. SWFlash (talk) Per proposal

Don't Delete[edit]

  1. Phoenix (talk) This template is perfectly acceptable to have around, I see no viable reason whatsoever to remove it.
  2. UltraMario3000 (talk) I do agree. And most users use this anyways.
  3. Goomba's Shoe15 (talk) having this template causes no harm to this site there really isn't a reason to remove it
  4. MrConcreteDonkey (talk) - Per Phoenix and my comments.
  5. DKPetey99 (talk) I don't see any harm in having this template.
  6. DK and Diddy Kong vs Bowser and Bowser Jr. (talk) Per my comments.
  7. BoygeyDude (talk) People are still using this. :/ Per all. :)
  8. Mario Fan 123 (talk) People still use this, and a category special for user-related templates should be created. Per all.
  9. Tom The Atum (talk) Per every single user saying don't delete. I am going to use it soon as I am going on vacation this Friday.
  10. Walkazo (talk) - Per all. Having an official way to say "hey, I'm not here currently" is a nifty idea: I've used it twice, and I'm sure more people would if they knew about it (or at least the folks who don't have customized status templates and don't want to muck about with coding on the eve of their departure).
  11. Yoshiwaker (talk) Per all.
  12. Bowser's luma (talk) I will be on vacation this summer, and I plan on using this. If it's not here then, I'll be MIA in Tennessee.
  13. Mario vs Luigi (talk) Per all.
  14. Fawfulfury65 (talk) The template doesn't harm us in any way. It simply lets everyone know that a certain user can't be online in a while. Plus, even if it is hardly used, it will save more space to have everyone use the template than to write it all out on their userspace. I'm sure if it got more attention, it would be used more often.

Commentary[edit]

It can't be used in mainspace? Why Mario no get vacation time? Mario Yoshi NSMBW.pngXzelionETC

Shoot. I reworded it. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C)

If this is deleted, does that mean {{Gone}} is deleted, too. I need that template in case I get angry again! DKPetey99.pngDKPetey99TCE

Probably. Just create a status box in your userpage and say that you're gone. You don't need that template unless you're lazy, but laziness is bad. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C)
FF65 said statuses aren't allowed anymore! Let me think about it, okay? DKPetey99.pngDKPetey99TCE
No, it's the "template" as a separate userpage that aren't allowed. There's no rule saying you cannot implement it into your userpage. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C)

Since it's pending deletion, I will put up the to be deleted template. DKPetey99 19:43, 12 May 2011 (EDT)

@Supporters - Well, the reason that Walkazo is the only user that is currently using the template is because she's probably the only user who's gone right now. Of course it's not going to be used by everyone at the present moment, I mean, what are the odds that everyone goes on vacation (or wherever) at the same exact time? Also, anyone can recreate any template on their userpage if they know the coding for it, that doesn't mean that we should get rid of every template because of that...

But I don't understand the point of having a template like this if we can just make it ourselves. And notice templates should be reserved mainly for main space. Of course it does no harm, but it is not beneficial either, unlike the rest of the other notice templates. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C)
What says notice templates should be preserved just for the mainspace? It is beneficial, as, if people would actually use it, it would let people know when they're going and when they'll be back. If we had to make it ourselves, that could be too difficult for some users, and way too much hard work. This is much more efficient. FakeIco MCD.png MrConcreteDonkey 17:36, 18 May 2011 (EDT)
My thoughts exactly.

¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 17:45, 18 May 2011 (EDT)

@Supporters-Then I say to delete the stub template since we can just copy the code on your userpage. I say to delete the warning template since you can just copy the code on your userpage. And so on.

The challenge is finding a sysop to agree with you. Try that! Look here.

Dude, you can create it again by using another template. Sure, if you can't remember it well, it won't be the same, but still. Arend (talk)
That would be very hard for some users who aren't good with coding. FakeIco MCD.png MrConcreteDonkey 11:24, 28 May 2011 (EDT)

No!!!!!!!![edit]

Don't delete it!! What if the vacation spot has no computers??!??! User: Olors

Dude, I never used that template, and all the vacation spots I've been, there's no computer, and especially no internet connection. 60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

Calm down' the talk page proposal said that it won't be deleted. Joseph (talk) (contribs) Joseph's mii.jpg

Really?[edit]

Do we really need this? It's hardly ever used and Users can easily place a status bar or something on their userpage to say that they're on vacation. In fact, no active user is using it at all right now. People really don't go on vacation that often. They go inactive far more often, yet the Gone template was deleted (for the same reasons I think this one should be). Yes, I see the proposal above, but it didn't fail by a very big margin.

I used it just recently, and so have a few others. I think it's a nice thing to have. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:57, 17 October 2017 (EDT)
I wish I had known about it when I first joined. Either way "People really don't go on vacation that often" is immeasurably subjective at best and outright false at worst. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:01, 17 October 2017 (EDT)
