Can somebody make an infobox on cities, so we can add them to Otah Gunga, Theed, Keren, Imperial City, etc.--Darth Tyler(talk) 23:52, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Actually, I'm pretty surprised that we don't have this. .... 23:59, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Me too. That's why I asked.--Darth Tyler(talk) 00:00, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
    • Some articles, such as Mos Eisley, use Structure infobox but if you want a city one, I'm happy to do it. I'll make a test version and then you can suggest any extra fields. Green Tentacle (Talk) 10:12, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
      • Okay, how about this? It uses a combination of fields from Structure infobox and Planet infobox. If you want any changes to fields or colours, let me know or just make the changes yourself. Green Tentacle (Talk) 10:27, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
        • "Population" seems sort of silly. We're covering millennia here. --ATATatarismall.png 15:29, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
          • Looks good, but I agree with Imp on the population bit. KEJ 17:12, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
            • I thought of that but the same is true of Template:Planet. Green Tentacle (Talk) 20:37, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
              • Right... and if it has an era tagging, then I guess we more or less know which point in time we're talking about. KEJ 21:23, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

There's plenty of cities to have an infobox: See List of cities ~ Jaywin

  • Yes, but as I said they are mostly using Template:Structure, which isn't really appropriate. Green Tentacle (Talk) 21:28, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
    • Let's use your suggestion then, Green. KEJ 21:29, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Green Tentacle, the subheading in there that says "Usage" should probably be "Societal," shouldn't it? Otherwise, it looks good. Wildyoda 21:31, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Definitely a needed template. How about "planet" and "region" fields? Sarendipity Talk File:Atrissig.jpg 01:57, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

  • There's also a bunch of cities for which we don't have enough information on to add infoboxes, but it will be fine for those that do. -- Riffsyphon1024 06:40, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
    • In answer to Sarendipity, I wondered about splitting location into two fields, one for planet and one for something more specific, but Structure infobox only uses the one field (called location) so I thought this would be easier for migrating things over. I can change it if people think it'd be better to have two. Green Tentacle (Talk) 09:39, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
      • I see your point. Like planet plus, say, continent or region or something. That would be useful. KEJ 14:55, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
        • We definitely need to include continents and regions to piece together the fine tapestries that are the geographies of these planets. -- Riffsyphon1024 21:48, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Okay, added planet and continent fields. I've left location there too, both for easy migration from the current infoboxes, and for any additional info like region, 80km from wherever, etc. Anything else? Green Tentacle (Talk) 22:25, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
