Enemy Names[edit]

Hey Crono, welcome. Just a note on enemy names, we have been using lowercase for the 2nd word of 2 word names because the enemy name is really the 'species' of the enemy. For example, in a sentence you would say, "I fought 8 stone golems." Stone golem is not a proper noun.

Other than that, your edits have looked great. Thanks for contributing! --FlyingRagnar 08:30, 7 December 2010 (CST)

Oh. Sorry about that, I thought they were just errors. Again, sorry about that. I won't do it anymore. --Silversey シルバーロック 14:15, 7 December 2010 (CST)

New Enemy Template[edit]

SilverCrono, I agree that the current enemy template could use an overhaul. I made a few modifications to your proposed enemy template and created a test page for it. You can see it in use here. I don't agree with breaking monster articles into smaller ones, but with these changes the template could have the current default collapse setting changed.

If you agree with the changes, I'll propose to FlyingRagnar that we adopt it as an improved enemy template. zenithian 13:03, 13 December 2010 (CST)

Yes, I do. I actually like this new one much better then mine, you made some great changes! I didn't know how to collapse it, so this is great and saves a lot of time. Your proposal to FlyingRagnar sounds good to me. --Silversey シルバーロック 14:02, 13 December 2010 (CST)
Great, I'll send him an e-mail. If you'd like to help me work on improving Template:CharacterSpellList, just let me know. zenithian 14:14, 13 December 2010 (CST)
I'd love to, but after giving a look-over, it seems like I need knowledge of DQ games. I've never played one before, I just got interested here because I know I'm getting DQ9 for Christmas >.> --Silversey シルバーロック 14:19, 13 December 2010 (CST)
I left a comment over on Zenithian's talk page. Basically, I'm fine with more changes. I think we need to research how we can make large monster articles more manageable. The show/hide helps with length, but then we have all those table headers sticking out into the page. --FlyingRagnar 09:28, 14 December 2010 (CST)
Alright. I'm glad we could do this, and I'll see if I can come up with a way to remedy this. --Silversey シルバーロック 14:14, 14 December 2010 (CST)
Just to give you a few more ideas and some background, when I created most of the different templates, I tried to make them look similar in design but with different colors. That way it gave the overall wiki some consistency. However, I didn't really try to customize things too much, which is why the enemy template has never looked really great. You can also looked at the (hideous) NotableEnemy template for ideas. Also, for games which have more than one release version, check out how I tested the tabber extension on Prince of Cannock. --FlyingRagnar 09:05, 15 December 2010 (CST)
