Discussion[edit]

In updating and cleaning character articles, I have found a lot of differences. Should we consider creating a Infosphere:Standard of character articles page? Aki 12:43, 23 May 2011 (CEST)

Standardization is nice. But what did you have in mind? Teyrn of Highever 12:50, 23 May 2011 (CEST)
Pretty much create a standard page based on what users agree is the optimal version of a character's article. I wouldn't mind creating a standard page, and then let it open for discussion of change. Aki 13:00, 23 May 2011 (CEST)
While not necessarily optimal, there is this. Hopefully, the main reason for non-standard articles on characters is that more is known about certain aspects of certain characters. - Quolnok 13:18, 23 May 2011 (CEST)
Quolnok pretty much said everything I was going to say. Can you give examples of the differences you've found, Aki? That might help improve the templates that are already existing. Teyrn of Highever 13:20, 23 May 2011 (CEST)
Ah, yes, I didn't find that one. However, I do think that one isn't as ultimate as it could be, and I would like to put in more examples, like how it should include sub-sections, what should go into what section (eg what is trivia and what is biography?), and such.
Differences that I've found include the order of the sections (personality above biography for example) and how much is included in the introduction. Many articles have a lengthy introduction and no biography section, for example.
If you want to, I can start writing an alternative (more expanded) version of aforementioned template, and link to it here asking if it should replace the current one. Aki 13:35, 23 May 2011 (CEST)
The template could use some work. But if the issue is just a matter of length and order of sections, I don't think changes are critical. Teyrn of Highever 13:44, 23 May 2011 (CEST)
I don't think the changes are critical either, but I think they'd be good to have. Aki 13:55, 23 May 2011 (CEST)
I'm in favour of the alternative version. How do you feel about the name Template:Character article, Aki? Sanfazer 00:48, 24 May 2011 (CEST)
