I am here to talk about infoboxes! Plenty of other wikis have them, but we don't. We've been functioning fine without them, but today I just decided to bring this to everyone's attention so that way we could formally vote on it. If you aren't aware, infoboxes are just little boxes filled with only the most essential information about a person, that way instead of skimming an article you can just glance at an infobox to get the jist of the person. 

Here on the right is an example of what an infobox looks like:

Now, most of these fields are 100% optional, really all you NEED to fill out is gender, occupation, crew and your appearance because those would be discussed in the page anyway. Also I know the infobox is a bit plain, I will be altering its design at a later date to make them a bit prettier.

Now, before we vote on them and what not here are a few pros and cons that Eros suggested I add in.

Pros:

  • Better organization
  • Looks more official
  • Gives a better sense of an article

Cons:

  • Takes some effort to code
  • Could seem very complicated to newbies
  • Takes time to put on every single page
Should we have infoboxes?
