Template talk:PlanetBox

From Ultronomicon
Jump to navigation Jump to search

I was inspired by Jacius' wiki version of Mmrnmhrm's RaceBox and Chimmera's planet tables, I decided to make a PlanetBox to hold the stats of planets. What do you think?

I used to think those planet stats weren't useful enough to include in the Ultronomicon, but this way they can be included while staying unobtrusive. -- SvdB 14:08, 27 Jun 2005 (CEST)

Category inclusion[edit]

While I think it's a nice feature of templates, there are some side effects that we need to deal with. For example, this now includes the Manual of Style in Category:Planets, which is slightly misleading. Also, be sure to use <includeonly></includeonly> so the template doesn't show up in the category. The easiest solution imho is to move the usage guidelines for the various textboxes to the template talk pages w/ links from the MoS, or just not use the inclusion trick at all. Thoughts? --Fyzixfighter 09:59, 23 May 2006 (CEST)

PAGENAME tag[edit]

After seeing Fyzixfighter's edit of the Template:ShipBox to include the {{PAGENAME}} tag, I am tempted to make this modification to the PlanetBox template as well, because it's just so damn cool. However, it would break the Ultronomicon:Manual of Style page example of Mars. Any thoughts on whether we should even bother? --PsiPhi 17:10, 31 October 2007 (CET)
