Editing articles

Hi, and thanks for your contributions to the wiki. :) I would appreciate if you, when you edit articles, also change them to use the new infoboxes and formatting. This is going to be done to all articles sooner or later anyway. Also I reverted your change to sort the furniture category by efficiency. For such a sorting a category "furniture by efficiency" or something should be created and and the Infobox:FixedObject template should add them to it. --EchoMan 12:21, 22 January 2011 (GMT)

Storage template

The storage infobox template is obsolete. Most special templates are now part of either FixedObject or Holdable. Reverting a bunch of your changes. --EchoMan 15:09, 22 January 2011 (GMT)

Master plan

We do have a master plan when it comes to the restructuring of the info-boxes. It isn't well documented, but tere are a few examples, e.g. Help:Infoboxes. I would appreciate if in the future, you discuss changes that you would like to do to any categories or templates, and reach a consensus with the current admin before going ahead and making changes of that kind. It would save us both a lot of work. :) --EchoMan 16:02, 22 January 2011 (GMT)

Old Templates

the code that logs the storage device to Category Storage_by_capacity can be moved, as it would be better generated as a sub category of storage. The only issue with this is the sortingname that is already in use in other lists (its a sort order override). In order for Storage_by_capacity to be accurate, I used the sortingname setting. The same can not be done with other templates without adding a new variable.

the resting state addition to resting furniture was just for convenience. (cheers for the Help:Infobox) --Paul 21:57, 23 January 2011 (GMT+12)

You're welcome. Please note that most old infobox templates are obsolete, and should be changed. E.g. Template:Infobox:Land vehicle construction should not be used, but should be transformed into a Template:Infobox:Manufacture infobox. Most (if not all) old ugly infoboxes are obsolete. --EchoMan 11:38, 24 January 2011 (GMT)

ST template

Hi again. Note that we use the ST template to stack infoboxes to the right side of the pages. All pages with multiple infoboxes should be changed to use ST when they are edited. Please review the changes I did to your recent edit, layout as well as the code: [1] and Feather pillow. Thanks! --EchoMan 06:52, 26 January 2011 (GMT)

New InterwikiLink templates

Hey! Either copy what is in the Usage section of Template:Interwiki and fill in the known article names, leaving the rest blank, or create it from scratch and type in the minimum: {{Interwiki<br /> | en = <English article name><br /> }}. I have no idea where all those links to different languages came from that you used, but we don't usually create links to articles that doesn't yet exist. I reverted your changes of weight of Apothecary kit and Tin can since they were correct from the beginning, and now are again. Keep up the good work. :) --EchoMan 07:30, 29 January 2011 (GMT)

I used the info from Recent database changes - Objects, and from the announcements thread on the forum. Thanks for the info on the InterWiki Templates. --Paul 23:49, 29 January 2011 (GMT+12)
Those updates has not been working for years. Please don't make changes based on that. :) --EchoMan 12:34, 29 January 2011 (GMT)

Re: New USE for old Templates

The new templates holds the new design for the wiki. The old templates does not. If functionality is missing from the new templates we add it there and replace the old templates. --EchoMan 06:11, 31 January 2011 (GMT)
