Creatue Infobox[edit]

This is my first selfcreated infobox template, please can anyone, how is a expert (Mbear) i mean you ;), take a look on it, and fix some thinks, thanks.--Doneve 16:54, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

looks ok from what i could see, lenght to length, weight to mass to match copy section.--Cameron 13:22, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks.--Doneve 13:23, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I agree with Cameron. I'm not sure what you want me to fix. It looks like you've got everything you need here, and the box should work.--Mbear 15:59, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Okidoki thanks guys.--Doneve 16:00, 25 April 2011 (UTC)
Do you really want the RPG stats in the infobox? I wouldn't do that for two reasons: 1) We simply don't have those stats for many (maybe even most) of the alien creatures; 2) they are just game rules, no canonical facts within the universe. Game rules can change (for example, if AToW 2nd Ed. comes) and then you would have to rework all creature articles for the new stats. But that's not an infobox problem, it's more a question of Do we need that game information in the article?Frabby 20:28, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
Hy Frabby, at 1.) it is my fist infobox, when you make changes feel free. At 2.) hmm need we the game infos? I think yes (my opinion), some none registred users use sarna. net as a data base and information source, i cant tell how the users have the books, or copyies, and i think it is ok, and yes i want to update the alien creatures pages, and in the future to, when new infos published, but thanks for your response, i appriciate it.--Doneve 20:39, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
1)handled like any stats that are not present, 2) that is why game stats are on the infobox in the first place, if the game stats are in the info box for weapons, then they belong in the infobox for creatures... 3) I could see subpages for each of the RPGs, from Mechwarrior Companion (for second edition) to CBT Companion (for Third Edition) to what ever the creature suppliment is for A Time of War. --Cameron 20:36, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Something that I think is missing in the infobox is the zoological name (like Panteras Ignus Jardinalis for the Jardinian Firecat). Frabby 20:28, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
The Zooalogical name would definately be useful, for those that have it... there is a way to get stats that are present to not appear in the infobox...--Cameron 20:36, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

InfoBox Gone Screwie[edit]

Same think that blasted the weapon infoboxes blasted this one... not sure the cause--Cameron 20:39, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

I don't see any problems. Running Win7, Firefox, standard Sarna scheme (no customisations). Frabby 22:02, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
