Renaming categories for inflection or headword templates[edit]

  • Voting on: Renaming "Category:Spanish inflection templates" to "Category:Spanish headword-line templates", and proceeding similarly for other languages.
  • Rationale: The category name "Spanish inflection templates" is confusing. The category does not contain all templates that show inflection, by exluding templates that show inflection tables in a dedicated section. The category only contains templates that are located on a headword line of an entry. A headword-line template shows not only inflection but also gender, transliteration and other information. While the name "headword-line templates" is preferred by only slightly more people who took part on a poll than the name "headword templates", a plain majority should be enough in this case to decide the name, as both candidate new names are basically okay.

  1. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain Mglovesfun (talk) 12:56, 30 December 2010 (UTC) Don't really care which option wins out, as long as there is a consensus. Which seems to be the case, anyway. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:56, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
  2. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain. Not really sure about how I feel about headword vs. headword-line. DAVilla 02:34, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
    The main practical difference that I see is that {{m}} is a headword-line template, and not a headword template, because it is comonly used outside the headword in headword-lines, but this template is currently not in the discussed category tree anyway. --Daniel. 05:24, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
