Conversion to use {{Navbox}}[edit]

Some convenient links:

Hello, it seems there's been a reversion of my edits, where I converted this template to use {{Navbox}} and it was reverted back to its previous state. I present here some summaries of both sides. Of course, I choose the side of support.

Support
  1. Its contents and function is identical to a navigation box, as it contains only links to other pages.
  2. Using {{Navbox}} would keep a consistent style across the wiki for navigation boxes.
  3. Wikitext in category pages is only possible in the start/head of the page. I suppose this is why this has been named a header.
  4. The current style is unaesthetic.
Oppose
  1. It should be used as a header and its contents could be expanded/replaced with something more appropriate.
Suggested actions
  1. Allow conversion to use {{Navbox}}.
  2. Move this page to {{Settings category header}} or something else so it could be generalised to contain more content.

Note: Go ahead if anyone wants to edit these lists. – Nahiyan8 (talk | contribs) 13:21, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

I'm going to add the edit again if User:Shirayuki doesn't respond by 24 November 2014. – Nahiyan8 (talk | contribs) 19:23, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
Using Navbox wastes screen area and spoils usability. --Shirayuki (talk) 04:13, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
Well it's possible to modify to width to match the old style while still looking better, is that okay? I'm not sure what you mean, all the Navboxes in Wikipedia are full-width as well, and if it's not a problem there, then...
Though, can you elaborate what you mean? It looks fine to me! – Nahiyan8 (talk | contribs) 04:42, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
