Design, purpose[edit]

Started at Commons_talk:Requests_for_comment/galleries#Confused

"discussions on policies, guidelines or other matters that have a wide impact and on which a broad consensus is needed" is stated on Commons:Centralized discussion.

Maybe the design of {{cent}} is not as good(?) as de:Vorlage:Beteiligen? Only the first line (Meinungsbilder) and in the last (Stewardwahlen) is important - the remaining is not really. One may participate but would not miss to "cast his vote" (kind of) if he does not. Once the RFCs were translated with "Meinungsbilder" (in cent) - but apparently they are more like de:WP:PRD (long term discussions).

So I feel that cent does not really fit it's purpose if such unfinished discussions like Commons:Requests_for_comment/galleries are advertised. There is no proposal, no vote, just gathering opinions of the people who participate and nothing will be decided soon. Due to the way the cent template is designed (lightwight, small) there is not much room for some kind of classification. Just maybe some kind of icon could be used. just after the "*".

Sorry, I've decided to have a wikibreak due to RL work pressures. I'll come back to this in due course - I've added it to my todo list. Rd232 (talk) 16:47, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
No, problem. Best wishes! --Saibo (Δ) 17:40, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
...well, some of them are more like long-term discussions, others are more concrete proposals that need wider coverage (like whether COM:REVDEL should be policy). I'm not quite sure what you're suggesting, other than using icons. Rd232 (talk) 05:16, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

What about using some icons like {{Info| }}Pictogram voting info.svg  (example for more or less "info" messages, if they should be here) right after the bullet point? --Saibo (Δ) 17:40, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

I like icons (COM:ICON...), so if we can find some suitable ones, sure. Rd232 (talk) 05:16, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Elsewhere[edit]

The nutshell description says: "Announcements and local or topic specific discussions are usually not appropriate for this template." Where should these other things go? Probably should say, so readers aren't left with no idea where else to try. - dcljr (talk) 08:22, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
