Forums: Index Watercooler New templates


All right, I am going to do this quick, since I have work tomorrow.

This is a basic proposal for new template designs. They are to be mobile friendly, yet have a good aspect on desktop view.

Since this uses JavaScript and CSS extensions, I am going to show you the images how this should look like.

Just vote for support, decline or neutral. I'd be really happy with any feedback you have, for remember, we can always aim for something higher, more classy.

1: Pokédex Entries

As you can see, the desktop view parses well with the colors of the games. Mobile view shows them in form of a list.

Yes

Support Support: After some time, I think I do prefer yhis design over the old one. It's easy yet nice looking and the coding got easier as well which is great for the future.--Lordranged7 (talk) 08:24, August 12, 2019 (UTC)
Support Support: I think this could really get the wiki up to date Lego Master BB (talk) 04:19, August 12, 2019 (UTC)

2: Evolution Galleries

This one is a bit harder. The layout on desktop is good, but on mobile is not so much. I could make a large gallery, but it might look the same as any other gallery with tabbers.

We don't have any sort of template like that at the moment. In fact, we have an evolution section that has a basic text, which may not represent it best.

Yes

Support Support: Hmmm, I do like it since we just have text about the evolutions. It's a bit unfortunate about the mobile version but I do prefer this over what we have now.--Lordranged7 (talk) 08:24, August 12, 2019 (UTC)

3: Movebox

This template presents the Pokémon's move from anime/manga. It's a combination of galleries and the table. The colors themselves can be fixed and attuned. The colors, like the rest of the templates, are based on the Pokémon type (in this case, it's Fire/Grass).

The only problem is this one uses a different syntax. That means every Pokémon page has to be updated to this newer, lighter syntax. It's a big risk, I know, but it can be quite satisfying.

Yes

Support Support: Ah, it looks better now than the previous draft. All the moves can now fit in this template which means most pages probably don't need that extra gallery section at the bottom of the page which is nice and it's good for mobile too.--Lordranged7 (talk) 08:24, August 12, 2019 (UTC)
Support Support: Now that's the template we can use for the moves Lego Master BB (talk) 04:23, August 12, 2019 (UTC)

4: Sprites

A simple gallery, which has the captions automized. The problem with the previous sprite gallery is that it has images in table. Not only it's hard to update that template, it's also hard to fixate all those images. This one also has an extension so you can even add alternative forms, like Mega Evolutions, quite easily. That means it can be easily updated with very little changes, only to the pages with other forms.

Yes

Support Support: Giving it some more thought, it does look a bit plain still but in this case, I don't think this one needs such a 'fancy' template. It's simple and does its job. I also think this one would be better than the previous one since it can fit more sprites etc.--Lordranged7 (talk) 08:24, August 12, 2019 (UTC)
Support Support: This is much better than the old template Lego Master BB (talk) 04:21, August 12, 2019 (UTC)

Result

One week has passed, and all templates pass. Just needs time to configure them, and the templates can go live. Energy X 18:08, August 19, 2019 (UTC)
