To me, Scroll Boxes seem like a very good way to organize long lists, making them compact and concise without eliminating any of the information. Take the Appearances section of the AT-AT article for example. I have put a scroll box on that page, and it works fine in both Firefox and IE browsers on both my work and my home computer. Yet one other wookieepedian keeps removing the scroll box because it doesn't seem to work for him, claiming they freeze up. Does anyone else have any problems view scroll boxes? And should they be removed for one individual having troubles with them? - JMAS 14:33, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

  • We've actually already had this talk, and it was decided to use them. Please see Forum:CT Archive/Scroll boxes. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 15:08, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
    • OK. Thank you for clarifying that. Hopefully, the other user won't continue removing it/them. - JMAS 15:39, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
      • That user would be me. I recently got a new harddrive after my old one crashed, so apparently it's something with this new harddrive. I'm thinking that, when the person installed it, he might have forgotten to plug something in or something along those lines. Anyway, as much as I voted against their use, I will personally re-add the scroll box to the AT-AT article once the issue is solved, which it should be today, as I'm taking my computer back to get it looked at.

        • Hate to sound like an ass, but.. what? A hard drive wouldn't work if something wasn't plugged in. There are only two wires, power and data. You can imagine what would happen without either. Regardless of that, a piece of hardware isn't going to cause rendering errors (well, perhaps a crappy monitor/video card which can't display colors properly, but that's it). Judging by your phrasing, you probably had Windows itself reinstalled, so that's almost certainly it. Though I've never heard of any errors like that, it is windows so it's not unbelievable. Anyway, don't think I'm picking on you or anything; much like invalid SW conjecture annoys you, invalid computer conjecture annoys me :) Uxviii 21:27, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
