I've notices that missions (like Mission to Myrkr or Mission to Mustafar) are increasingly listed as batttles, making use of the battle info-box. Isn't this kinda wrong? I mean, Mission to Mustafar is not a battle as such, is it? And doesn't it also give precerence for listing for intance all the levels from, say, the Jedi Knight games as battles? I think we should create a mission infobox along the lines of the battle infobox, but maybe specifying who was sent on the mission and its objectives and stuff... as a way to distinguish between missions and battles KEJ 15:38, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Sounds like a great idea to me. I'm not very knowledgable at such things as making info-boxes though. I'm for it! Crowe 16:04, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
    • The battle infobox is way overused, it's used even for things like Destruction of Malachor V. We need a policy on that. - Sikon [Talk] 07:07, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
      • To me, it seems that the battle-box is used for battles, lightsaber duels, missions and planetary destructions. Maybe we should create a mission-box (stating location, temporal location, objective(s), agent(s), adversaries, equipment, outcome and stuff), a duel-box (stating duelists, location, temporal location, outcome and stuff), and a planetary catastrophe box for events like the destructions of Malachor and Alderaan, the burning of Yavin IV, the cataclysmic ecology changes of Ossus and Ruusan and similar events (stating temporal location, cause of destruction/catastrophe, known victims (i.e. known characters who perish in the event) and stuff).

        • Another thing that's been bothering me, is how everything gets turned into a "battle" in the title. Some events are nothing more than skirmishes, others are outright sieges. Why can't this be reflected in the names of these events? I've seen several such articles getting "Battle" in the title, and I don't understand why. VT-16 08:15, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Mission info boxEdit

I've just discovered that the phenomenal Xilentshadow900 made a mission info-box last year. That's great. I suggest we use that template more often! KEJ 09:50, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
