I don't believe this template adds much. It's meant to be placed at the top of an article, which is often already cluttered enough with disambiguation information, and I feel it duplicates the functionality of both navboxes and the MediaWiki category system. I personally think it should be removed from all articles and deleted because of this, but if anyone has a suggestion for how to make the template work, please feel free to say so here! --FastLizard4{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 06:15, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

  • Delete - as nominator. --FastLizard4{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 06:15, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete - I don't think we really need to designate articles with a single hierarchy. Most could fall into multiple different categories, which are already indicated in their navboxes and categories. AmorphousBlob[ADMIN] (talk) 06:21, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete - I agree with everything that's already been said, plus I feel that too much info may also put people off visiting the wiki. N1ghtrav3n {Patroller} 10:31, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment - I was too busy for to remember to documentation. It's mainly a directory on fairly large pages as a link an immediate link at the top. It's pretty helpful on organisation. — A (tc) 16:14, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
    Since I'd like to have more input from you on this: In light of and perhaps addressing the concerns put forth above, in what ways would it be more helpful for organization than the category and navbox systems? --FastLizard4{ADMIN} (TalkContribsLogs) 10:43, October 15, 2014 (UTC)
  • Got a bit strapped for time there. Well, having it really just opens another way of organization. Categories go to their simple category page but the ones on top can link to the larger more descriptive articles if they exist. Also it helps you skip across the wiki faster with the multiple order levels. — A (tc) 15:43, October 15, 2014 (UTC)
