I love the new infobox. It cleans up the articles by removing the lists from the bottom. Totally cool. My only concern is that it needs a left-margin. The text is crowding a little close. It's making me claustrophobic. [edit]: Eep! I just tried it myself. I don't know how you people work with the crazy wikicode for tables. Yowch. I'll just leave it up to you... --Buddy 10:43, 19 April 2007 (PDT)

Heh, it takes a little getting used to but once you learn it it's actually a lot simpler than html table syntax. I see what you mean, and I'll tweak it now. Gopher 10:51, 19 April 2007 (PDT)
Oh, another thing. If we can make this happen somehow, there's some code I'd love to add to allow custom hidden sections. I think it would be great if the complete crew credits could be put in such a section; I thought it would be too much to include both lists in the infobox. For an example of this in action, check out the "Appearances" section on the character articles on Memory Alpha (example). If we got this feature working (some functions need to be tweaked to our needs and pasted into the right .css and .js files on the server), we could add the complete "appearances" sections even for the major characters, which we chose to omit for major characters because the long lists would be so ugly.

Cripes! I swear I frigging did that, and it didn't work!!! *smacks forehead* I'm very tired. I probably made some stupid mistake like putting a 9 instead of a g... --Buddy 11:06, 19 April 2007 (PDT)

Don't feel bad, god knows I've had those moments more times than I could recount in a month of sundays. I do my best coding at 2am, but I do my best debugging/troubleshooting at 10am. :) Gopher 11:07, 19 April 2007 (PDT)

Hm, I suppose you could base it on my Template:Character infobox, like this Template:Episode infobox, yes I created it just now. --SvipTalk 15:42, 19 April 2007 (PDT)

I think it might be a little wide, it's about the same width as the article in 1024*768 screen res. - Quolnok 18:39, 19 April 2007 (PDT)
oops! I feel silly, good call Qual, I forgot most people don't use maximized web windows at 1400px wide. I'll cut it by about 25%, see how that looks. Gopher 19:29, 19 April 2007 (PDT)
