Template design

Just a note that I am absolutely NOT committed to the current color scheme and was simply going for something different than already exists in other infoboxes and other templates. If you change the colors, please avoid any shades of red and orange as it is preferred to save those for warning or other notice boxes. -- B.Rossow talkcontr 20:11, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Mouse Description

Thinking of moving the description off the template and back onto the main mouse page because: 1) Looks pretty cramped squeezing all that text into the small box, when 2) The rest of the page looks empty Comments? -- Grexx 16:07, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

  • I'm strongly against it. It was put there to parallel the other infobox templates (e.g. Weapon and Base). Instead of moving it out, why not consider trying to flesh out the mouse pages instead with actual information? They are bare, but that doesn't necessitate mucking up the template to make up for a lack of info. New sections such as "Hunting tips" and "Best place to find this mouse" would be great additions and wouldn't be change for the sake of change. IIRC, Peter888 has some templates for such pages that he's playing with in his sandbox. Might check with him to see what he's up to. -- B.Rossow talkcontr 16:13, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
    • Ah I didn't connect the standardization in the templates together. Ok then lets see what we can do to make the pages more lively then. -- Grexx 16:33, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

URL vs. ID

Instead of using the URI each time, why don't we just specify an ID parameter and have the URI link automatic? That would make it easier if MouseHunt suddenly changes how the Mouse Profile page works (instead of having to change every Mouse page.) --Navarr 00:07, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
