Group infobox[edit]

Documentation for {{group infobox}}

Use[edit]

This infobox is for groups and organisation. These are generally considered articles that cannot be described fully by the {{place infobox}} or {{character infobox}}. Also, if it is a species or race in question, use {{species infobox}} instead. A group is usually a collection of characters, and each character may have different importance for the overall plot than its other characters. For instance, Fatbot appears a lot more than the other Fratbots.

For organisations, it would apply to something as DOOP or similar. Something with too many people and too many locations to serve with a single "place infobox".

Usage[edit]

{{group infobox
|name           = Name of group or organisation
|image          = [[Image:Image.png|225px]] If logo is available, use that.
