Sorry I've been busy moving and starting a new job. When I get back from this business trip I'll see if I can get a response. It'll be a few days though I am afraid. Sorry for the delay.

Yeah. I thought I brought this to the attention of the other admins, but I was wrong. It shouldn't be much longer.

Okay, they said it'd be fine. I'll try to get it done as soon as I can; might take a few days since I'll be away this weekend, but I might have some time to work on it.

Re: Federation of Allied Systems Infobox

Balsa i had a request for a modification on the FAS Infobox.

Since i mainly make the wikis associated with the MG i would like to make a slight difference on the infobox. Since my MG works with many offices and ministries and he chars often change positions i would like to have the ability to do this in the infobox for better picture of the chars political bio summary.

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 6-7

I asked for this some months back for the general infobox chars and denied but i think i can ask this only for my personal FAS infoboxes.

ITS VITAL FOR MY WORK AND OF COURSE ITS INSPIRED BY THE WIKIPEDIA.

Thanx in advance J.

I'll have to take a look to see how it fits and how it looks aesthetically. If it fits well, then I'll add it in.

Alrighty thank you very much.

If it doesnt fit good you can reduce the number to 2-3. It can be a separate categorie in the infobox saying political career and under this i dont know. I want it very bad though.

The issue right now is that I don't know if the infobox templates allow sub-sub headings. So, if I include Position 1, etc., it'll have to be a primary heading, such as Personal Information or Biographical Information. That means if the character doesn't have a Position 4, the heading will still be visible.

One option is to include a subheading of "Former Position 1" and continue to 5. Doing so would mean you'd have to manually include the dates of service and you would have to manually include "proceeded/succeeded by". On the other hand, if the field is left blank, then it'll be hidden, giving the infobox an overall better look.

Is that clear? It can be difficult to explain.

What are your thoughts? What are others' thoughts?

Balsa since we only speak for my template i can quarantee that all of my chars have more than 4 political positions. So the first option is not a trouble.You can do it like this all 4 will be filled.

On the other hand i might got it wrong what i have in mind is this type of infobox: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Papandreou As far as the politian info.

Okay, if that's the case, I'll go ahead and do it for 4 positions. If you need more, well, it'll look pretty cumbersome and I'd advise just using 4. :P

Couldn't you do the Wookieepedia thing where you put the box at the bottom of the Wiki page with an arrow to the left and to the right for predecessor and successor? For a plethora of examples, see Palpatine.

That's actually how the method is supposed to work, not in an infobox. I think Jag was the one who was experimenting on implementing that into our Wiki.

That would be the ideal solution, yes, but we'd have to figure it out. And since many of our wiki admins are lazy people ( ;) ), I've gone ahead and edited the infobox to allow Johny to do what he wants to do. If we get the ideal solution working, we'll go back and use that box.

It's because you added in the infobox twice.
