Why are we manually listing these templates in this category? Should we move these to Wiktionary:References templates? Mglovesfun (talk) 15:34, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

To Category:English reference templates, whilst obviously removing all the non-English ones. We already have Category:Reference templates by language, but English is not in that category! The switch over to language has gone well so far, why buck the trend whilst it's working? Mglovesfun (talk) 19:54, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

But when is a reference 'English'? Some could be used for other languages as well, especially etymological dictionaries. —CodeCat 20:06, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Well, categorization isn't intended to (and won't) stop user using reference templates whenever they are useful. Nor does categorization have to be limited to only one language. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:16, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
I support creating Category:English reference templates. I am neutral on deleting Category:Reference templates. (Note that currently, a lot of reference templates belong both to Category:Reference templates and to a language-specific category. I don't know whether that's useful or not.) —RuakhTALK 12:54, 27 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Is a template for Spanish-English dictionary a Spanish reference template or English reference template? Keep things simple by placing all reference templates to Category:Reference templates. --Dan Polansky (talk) 10:02, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
