What's the purpose of this template? It seems to be redundant to Template:Information. Can it safely be deleted after all inclusions are changed to Template:Information? --Slomox (talk) 15:57, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

The difference between Template:Information and Template:Information2 is the presence of additional optional "location" field for word description of the location. It sometimes make sense to separate description of events in the photo from discussion of location. Also hopefully in the future we might have search engines that will allow searching of of each one of those fields separately (assuming Template:Information is used at all), than "location" field might come handy. I think this template should be merged with Template:Information and retired. The merger should be done by adding this optional field to Template:Information ( I would place it just after description), and replacing all inclusions. --Jarekt (talk) 13:00, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
