Wiki Infobox Request

Post by DarthYnoj » Thu Nov 03, 2011 10:28 am

I would just want to ask if the admins or mods of the forums or wiki create a template infobox for building.

I mean Exodus Building Infobox which can have this:
{{
Name
Picture
Year of Building
Year of Demolition
Year of Reconstruction
Year of Destruction
Use
Floors
Stracture
Rooms
Planet
Type
Affiliation
Creator
}}
Something like that.

Wikia admins are solely responsible for infobox creation. We'll look into it and let you know.

Then what did you make me? I was under the impression that you guys added me as a sysop/whatever, then Jag/Cazzik went ahead and made me a full blown admin. So, if I'm not an admin, I'm confused! :P

Edit:

After checking the user list, I'm the same rank (sysop) as Cazzik and Halo, so if I'm not an admin, neither are they. :P

Wikia access rights, you're an admin. But if you look over the thread that contained whatever it was we were talking about at the time, you'd see that we weren't bringing you onboard as an admin.

What? I'm technical like that! Go away! *Curls up in the corner*

Also i wish to ask about another one more prominent for my wiki articles right now than the building.

Cabinet Infobox like this

Organazation

Position 1
Year Assigned
Proceeded By
Suceeded By

Position 2
Year Assigned
Proceeded By
Suceeded By

Position 3
Year Assigned
Proceeded By
Suceeded By
--And so on like about 15

It can be also used for political bio positions bios for individual characters.

So concluding works both for chars and goverments cabinets
Please try to make this due.

Ideally any infoboxes that are added to the wiki will have more than one use. Your request for an infobox for buildings is a good example of this because other people can use it to denote company HQs, bases or temples for whatever company and/or organization they might have. An infobox for cabinet positions is a bit more limited in its usage, I think. The wiki admins might not find much use for it but we'll see.

I just thought it would be good for also politians characters.

Well, politician characters would be better served by the NR (or the respective faction) infobox.

Well i have to disagree in this.My opinion of course and i think that each politian should have an analytic infobox for his last positions.It is done in the wikipedia also.I took the idea from there since i like it a lot to see the offices and positions one had.But as i see i am the only one to want such a thing.

So is my request rejected?

You have to remember that we don't have that many politicians in Exodus and we don't have that many positions on Exodus in order to make it worth the effort. But that's me.

Well,i need a reply from the Wiki Admins so i know how i will make my Ministers articles on wiki now.Because since i will always have Ministries and Congress in the future my characters will change positions and it would really help me a lot guys.But up to you.

P.S. Do not forget threads like Neimoidia and Naboo that are 2 big parts active a lot have many position i believe.Just me also of course.

There are other ways of going about this than making ridiculously long infoboxes, to which I'm 100% against the idea of making a "cabinet infobox" template. Character infobox templates are organized by affiliation. If your character has no recognizeable affiliation from what we have, it goes to independent.

I can't speak for the rest of the Wikia admin team, but I see no point in this particular request.

As an update to the building request... as far as I know (I have to check back on it and determine what it is we're going to do) it's still being discussed.

There's actually a different kind of template that can be used for that. And, tbh, it may be time to look into implementing it.

There's no place for it in the infobox itself, though. Too much clutter.

I'll see if we have enough to support this template. I imagine we do; I can think of a few different instances, at the least, that could benefit from this.

I was waiting for a more definitive response, but I'm just going to make the statement that since I'm head Wikia admin, they don't matter!

But seriously, yeah, we're cool with a location infobox. We'll get Balsa on that right away. ;) (Hey, that's what you signed up for, mate!)

@Mir, I'll bring that up to see what they say, or Cadden can or someone can.

@John, I'll get to making that wiki info box "soon". It may take a couple of days. If it's not up by Saturday morning, send me a PM. (It takes some time since I'm not fluent with coding and it's been years since I've built an infobox, so I have to "brute force" my way through it all, aka copy code and edit the necessary fields.)

John, I've created the infobox for you:

http://starwars-exodus.wikia.com/wiki/T ... _Structure

I left the color the same as the template I used (the Armor infobox), so if that's a problem, I can change later. If you need anything else, let me know!

Mir, no one's responded yet. I'll look over what you need done and make an executive decision, soon.
