Template being deprecated?

SatanicSanta, I noticed that a lot of the links to pages I've been creating have changed from {{ML|page name|mod}} to [[Page name (mod)|Page name]]. Is this just for consistency? --SirMoogle (talk) 07:34, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

It's probably Xbony2 hating on ML and preferring the pipe trick. AFAIK the template isn't being deprecated? Xbony? -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 09:03, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
{{L}} is only suppose to be used in translated pages. {{ML}} is derived from {{L}}. {{L}} is about 20x slower than using regular links (sometimes slower, sometimes faster) and of course {{ML}} is even slower. Not sure if either templates will make it through T3 -Xbony2 (talk) 12:17, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Perhaps the documentation can be edited to reflect the intended usage? The transclusion's confusing me as to how to edit it myself. --SirMoogle (talk) 16:04, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
The actual documentation is here. Chocohead NagEditsStaff 16:07, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
Actually, there is virtually no difference in performance between L and ML -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 16:25, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
There is however a difference between standard wikilinks and L/ML. The difference between L and ML is within the margin of error. 🐇Retep998🐇🐰Bunny Overlord🐰 16:29, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
Definitely. I was just correcting Xbony's assumption that ML is "of course ... even slower." -- SatanicSanta🎅FTB Wiki Admin 18:54, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
ML has been slower on average than L from my testing. The speed results for Lua are always inconsistent, so it's eh. It's obviously not faster though. -Xbony2 (talk) 23:39, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
