Just browsing through our Notices category and came across this template - do we use it for anything? It looks like an incomplete spoiler warning template, but we already have one of those. It also doesn't appear to be transcluded anywhere. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 22:39, 8 December 2020 (UTC)

I've not used that ever. --MPH (talk) 22:48, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
There are a handful of pages that use this template as a "you may be looking for [similarly named page]" notice. But I much prefer simple text hatnotes. I think a template like this is too obtrusive and looks to me like a temporary needs-editing flag versus something permanent and integrated. --sparc 03:50, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
Oh I agree. Those notices look more like a warning than a signpost to the page you may be looking for. Maybe its just the black text on yellow background, but I'd be in favour of removing them. And if that's the only use of this template, I don't think we need this template. --Auntags (talk) 21:23, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
