Used only on two pages. What does "professorial level" mean anyway? --Vahagn Petrosyan 19:22, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

I think this is a WP imported template. "Professional level" means that the user writes or edits as his/her profession, or perhaps serves as a translator. --EncycloPetey 01:19, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
But the template doesn't say "professional". It says "professorial". And two of the three users who use this template do so without indicating another language that they speak well (though presumably they speak some coded language well), which would imply that they use this template to indicate something better than native: something like "not only am I a native speaker of English, I speak it really well". (The other user might also mean that, but I don't know: he lists nl.)​—msh210 17:33, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

BTW, we don't have Template:User en-5. --Vahagn Petrosyan 14:36, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Keep, it's for the userspace only, and what harm does it do? Can anyone think of any userpage rules that this violates? Mglovesfun (talk) 20:22, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

This template if kept should be orphaned (with a note of explanation left on the userpage in its place) and reworded to avoid ambiguity: not both EP and I interpreted it correctly, which implies it's ambiguous.​—msh210 17:33, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Keep and improve then, I admit it doesn't make much sense. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:29, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, since (I think) it should be orphaned, I therefore shall say delete: it's not so useful that we need to orphan it, inform its users, and reword it.​—msh210 21:42, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
Keep No harm is done by having this stay on the English Wiktionary, and as it stands, this really isn't a reason to delete it. Razorflame 18:21, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Kept Mglovesfun (talk) 16:03, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

I've blanked the template and informed its users of the reason and what they can do about it.​—msh210 18:18, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
