Template talk:Deprecated

I like this template because is gives a good "graveyard" tag page, which is e.g. nice for for Taginfo.

  1. Should Template:Deprecated_feature be included? I created this because of the subtleness of the "deprecated" status and it also includes all the warnings from Deprecated_features about mass-edits.
  2. There is often not one key which replaces the old one. That's why I made the parameter of Template:Deprecated_feature as "free text".
  3. Why named "Discouraged"? The feature is "deprecated" and only the usage is "discouraged". With the current title and wording it sounds like there is another status "discouraged".--Jojo4u (talk) 23:00, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
I this it should include the Template:Deprecated_feature. Do you plan to rename it from "Discouraged" to something else? I am OK with it. Chrabros (talk) 06:57, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
I added Template:Deprecated_feature, replaced newkey/newvalue by newtext and moved the template to Template:Deprecated. Deprecated is used 500-600x in the wiki, while discouraged is used 100-200x.--Jojo4u (talk) 22:15, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

when oldvalue unset -> key template

When oldvalue is unset Template:KeyDescription should be used instead of Template:ValueDescription. There is also Template:RelationDescription but we have yet to deprecate a relation.--Jojo4u (talk) 19:40, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

Of course creating DeprecatedKey and DeprecatedValue instead could also be a solution.--Jojo4u (talk) 22:35, 6 June 2016 (UTC)


Hi, I would like to be able to translate the text "description=Using this tag is discouraged, use {{{newtext}}} instead." to Czech langugage. Could you please modify the template accordingly? Thank you. Chrabros (talk) 06:29, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

I have added a framework for translated text, you will nedd to add the actual translation.--Andrew (talk) 21:50, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
