Terrible Shows & Episodes Wiki:Requests for Comment/Restore the NSFW template

From Terrible Shows & Episodes Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Recently, the NSFW template was deleted by SuperStreetKombat. They deleted the template because of unnecessary additions of the template on certain pages. I strongly disagree with the deletion of this template, for two reasons:

  1. In terms of the reason why it was deleted, the users who were adding the template unnecessarily should have been warned and, if necessary, blocked.
  2. In terms of the reason why it is necessary, it is necessary because it is an important warning to those at school or work, who need to be notified if something is not appropriate to view while there. It is also important for children who are viewing the wiki to find out about bad children's shows to make sure they don't read an article with mature content.

Therefore, I propose that the template is restored. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 23:27, 15 July 2022 (UTC)


  1. Strong support As proposer. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 23:27, 15 July 2022 (UTC)
  2. I agree. ZeusDeeGoose (talk) 16:02, 31 July 2022 (UTC)
  3. I know I did say I didn't care about the outcome, however as we all know, I'm an indecisive person, and easily persuaded given there are satisfactory reasoning. I believe that the {{NSFW}} template is a form of a content warning which advises users to view at their own discretion as there can be some content that can trigger trauma or as a warning to <13 users that the content can be unsuitable for them. -- Cheers, Justin Aves (talkcontribsglobalrights) 01:02, 5 August 2022 (UTC)


  1. Oppose Sorry, but I can't think we can afford to risk anymore edit warring, unnecessary additions, or even hostility. Besides, mature templates have always been an objectively bad idea to begin with. SuperStreetKombat (talk) 16:44, 31 July 2022 (UTC)
    @SuperStreetKombat: I would disagree. I think that you should, if anything, continue protecting pages that don't deserve the template and warning (and, if necessary, eventually blocking) users who keep overusing the template. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 00:33, 1 August 2022 (UTC)
  2. Oppose I don't think it's the good idea. Wavera (talk) 16:49, 31 July 2022 (UTC)
    @Wavera: No offense, but that isn't much of an explanation why you want the template to stay deleted. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 00:33, 1 August 2022 (UTC)
