*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.

Forums: Index Help desk A few infobox/general template suggestions

Hoy, I can't help but notice that there is a bit redundancy in the current infobox implementation. Hence, I have two suggestions;

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)
I edit at a wiki that has templates to use for the infobox templates. It's the most annoying thing in the world. You make one change to one section and the whole template combination breaks. I don't like the idea at all, here or there. – zzi 20:26, November 23, 2011 (UTC)
