Rationales for removal:

{{uw-2redirect}} - pretty sure a bot fixes these
{{uw-articlesig}} - button to add signature was removed from the edit toolbar when editing in mainspace
{{uw-csd}} - better you actually say why the speedy criteria they chose was not applicable
{{uw-directcat}} - surely is a rare occurrance. When it happens, just fix it
{{uw-fuir}} - I believe a bot does this, or those AWB people do. Surely doesn't happen enough to warrant inclusion here
{{uw-imageuse}} - Just going to go ahead and remove this. We have a verbose explanation shown via edit filter when they try to do this. Better we just write a personal note then send them to walls of outdated text
{{uw-incompleteAFD}} - Cyberbot issues more descriptive warnings
{{uw-nonfree}} - this is a warning, not a notice, and should happen when we nominate the image for deletion
{{uw-notaiv}} - we don't ever use this. Just explain the issue to them
{{uw-notifysd}} - this doesn't say what warnings to use
{{uw-notvand}} - tell them which edit was mislabeled
{{uw-patrolled}} - very rare, NPP is supposed to be for experienced editors, and they'll likely be using semi-automated tools that mark the page as patrolled
{{uw-probation}} - talk about being vague. We will be adding a way to issue sanction warnings in the future, otherwise tell them what the situation is
{{uw-refimprove}} - linked resources are grossly outdated, and we usually will instead issue a general notice on adding unverifiable content
{{uw-removevandalism}} - no one uses this
{{uw-repost}} - This is speedy deletion criteria and has it's own template
{{uw-samename}} - renames now happen on meta, and has got to be a pretty rare. The global renamers or stewards should let them know of the issue
{{uw-uaa}} - rarely used, and newcomers don't usually report to UAA
{{uw-upincat}} - a bot removes or "deactivates" these categories, or should
{{uw-uploadfirst}} - same with {{uw-imageuse}}
{{uw-userspacenoindex}} - we draftify user pages like this

Creating PR for record keeping of the rationale. Boldly going to go ahead and merge

Good work. The list of warnings has barely been touched in 4 or 5 years.

Don't forget to (a) remove {{Twinkle standard installation}} from the template doc pages; and (b) watch WT:TW to let any complainers know that they can use custom warnings.
