Hoy, I can't help but notice that there is a bit redundancy in the current infobox implementation. Hence, I have two suggestions;
- Modularize the infoboxes, e.g. have an Infobox template that is in charge of general color/sizing of infobox, and then have sub infoboxes that only contain data. As an example look at User:Zachasme/Template:Infobox_New, User:Zachasme/Template:Infobox_Item_New. This would not only make it easier to make global changes to infoboxes, but also make it easier to implement new infobox types.
- Make templates for things like game names and game lists. Example: User:Zachasme/Template:Game, User:Zachasme/Template:Games. This would help enforce consistency, as well as make it possible to globally change the game listing style.
As an additional example User:Zachasme/Sandbox uses the above templates.
- I don't see the problem with our current system. Apart from a few inconsistencies between them (which we are currently discussing elsewhere), they are just fine. And consider how most new users (and some who ain't new) likely lack the intelligence to work them. I see your point, but there's no point fixing what ain't broken. Now actually, the whole game parameter idea is a bit interesting, but still, writing it out is easy. Years ago, we had similar templates for game titles in articles, but they were deleted for this very reason. --AuronKaizer! 20:22, November 23, 2011 (UTC)
