This list is too big for Wikipedia[edit]

It is so big that the templates at the bottom of the page are not displaying properly. For technical details, see the explanation at the top of Category:Pages where template include size is exceeded.

I don't know of a fix other than to split the table and put some of it on a different Wikipedia page. This will make it impossible to sort across tables.

I recommend splitting the table by region, but having a "top 150" list which will capture the top peaks in England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Sorry Isle of Man, you don't show up until 821. Put Scotland's in their own Wikipedia page, put the others in their own sections in this article, along with the top 10 of Scotland.

Another option is to split the table by island, keeping Scotland, England, and Wales in one table. Put this table in a separate Wikipedia page. Use the main "list" article for "top-200," Ireland, and Isle of Man. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 23:43, 17 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't see the issue re the templates not displaying properly? It is a data-list, so being able to sort it on one table is useful; also, several peaks are on borders, so splitting into separate country lists would be a problem to construct. I think it is fine as is. Britishfinance (talk) 11:19, 3 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, this table needs to be updated every year (prominences, which Marilyns rely on, have been getting revised regularly), which requires a download from the DoBIH database. The current format is in a layout that can be uploaded within an hour. Further customizing the table, would make this process more complex. Britishfinance (talk) 20:01, 7 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
