Removing them isn't the same as making them optional. There are some science nuts, as has been pointed out, who might want or actually care to fill that out. Templates on SARP also have more than a fair share that include optional categories ON the template. They can be removed from the template if someone doesn't want them, which is precisely what I mean. This seems like a forced template change that would take more updating of various systems already, which is why I point out we could just make it optional as a brief fix. There's still the fact we've not converted much of the site to DRv3 templates, have far more ships and the like that need template updates, and more. It just feels a bit weird that we can't just slap on "optional" to the current template and not try to make another wiki-sweeping template update when we're already behind on updating the countless other template revamps we've made.
