Created last November, but never used since then it seems. —CodeCat 23:30, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Kept while used with no consensus to delete.--Jusjih (talk) 02:54, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
I've unstruck Template:c.; the distinctive feature of it as opposed to e.g. Template:circa is that Template:c. does not mark the abbreviation or wikilink it to explain what it is. Wiktionary is WT:NOTPAPER, using such abbreviations in the first place is questionable, but intentionally being opaque about them is asinine. I'm going to redirect it to Template:circa. - -sche (discuss) 01:01, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
The remaining two templates have only three transclusions combined now. We might as well orphan them altogether? —CodeCat 01:08, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I hadn't noticed how little-used Template:circa3 was. It should certainly be orphaned in favour of the regular Template:circa. Template:abbr, in contrast, looks like it could perhaps be useful...or do we already have a template that does what it does? - -sche (discuss) 01:16, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
...although, one could just use a combination of (a) spelling abbreviations out and (b) wikilinking them to Wiktionary and WP entries. - -sche (discuss) 19:18, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
In practice, it seems Template:abbr is just being used in place of Template:ante. Sigh. The only semi-legitimate use was an awkward Korean use. Orphaned and deleted. - -sche (discuss) 08:45, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
Template:c. has now been redirected, and Template:circa3 has been deleted. - -sche (discuss) 00:46, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
