Do we have a policy on the correct way to format image info? I know we need to include a summary, a source and licensing info, but I assumed they needed to be separated by headers. Imp seems to be incorporating summary and source into one section, however. Anything? - \\Captain Kwenn// Ahoy! 21:00, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

  • I'm just doing it because that's how the upload system does it by default. Although Wikia may add a "source" field soon, which would be cool. Anyway, this will be covered by the proposed image policy we're writing (or will write this weekend). --Imp 21:06, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Ah, excellent - \\Captain Kwenn// Ahoy! 21:56, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
      • I just saw this image template at wikimedia commons. Maybe we could start to implement it here. --Xwing328(Talk) 19:12, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
        • I copied it over to {{Information}}. Should we keep the "Date" field? And perhaps we should make the "Author" field optional, seeing as most images we use are either promotional or screenshots. --Imp 22:04, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
          • Good idea. And an excellent template. One thing though: do we add Licensing info to the "Permission field", and if so, are some of the licensing temples going to be reduced in size? Ones such as {{comicpanel}} might make this template a bit unwieldly - \\Captain Kwenn// Ahoy! 22:06, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
            • I think I'll play around with it some. We can enable auto-hiding for non-essential fields like author and date. --Xwing328(Talk) 22:33, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
            • OK, I deleted "date". How many image creation dates do we actually know? Probably <1%. Author is now optional, since we don't know who created most of the images we use. Also, I made the variables lowercase, since they are case sensitive, and that's the style we use on Wookieepedia. If we could work this in to the image upload pages that would be neat. --Xwing328(Talk) 22:55, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
              • A perfect request for Forum:Wiki feature requests. Oh, and is it possible to place licensing templates within this template? That would be sort of neat. --Imp 23:51, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
                • Yes it is possible, sizing may be an issue on some, but I'm going to experiment with it later. There was a slight code glitch earlier also. --Xwing328(Talk) 03:02, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Information template testEdit

Here's a new possibility for the {{Information}} template, featuring auto-hiding capabilities, better colors, etc. --Xwing328(Talk) 03:40, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Now that's good. Bravo! - \\Captain Kwenn// Ahoy! 19:18, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
    • I love it! Maybe the colors should be made more light blue-ish, so the template blends better in with the white background, though. --Imp 19:33, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
      • I went ahead and updated it with this new version. If you have color suggestions, feel free to change it or write the specific hex code here so we get some ideas. —Xwing328(Talk) 19:59, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
        • How about this? Edit: I like the blue colors you added to the main template, too. --Imp 20:06, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
          • Hmm, I think the gray is almost a bit too neutral. I added the info template below so we can see both versions. —Xwing328(Talk) 20:37, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
          • I tested it with the default color #CCF and the monobook background #F4F8FF, and it looked very ugly. —Xwing328(Talk) 20:50, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
            • You have a point. I say we go with the blue one. --Imp 20:55, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
              • The writing needs to be bigger, especially in the copyright tags. The box could do with being centre-aligned too. -- I need a name (Complain here) 20:57, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Another thing: Perhaps an optional field for image maintenance templates such as {{no source}}. --Imp 21:00, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Font size has been increased, and I threw in a new "attention" variable as requested. I need a name, when you say the box should be center-aligned, do you mean the box itself, or the text within? —Xwing328(Talk) 22:54, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
