User:Riblet15 has done some great work polishing Infobox Item from the OSRS Wiki.

I believe some of the changes he implemented would benefit RSW aesthetically as well, and would like to suggest implementing the same here. These are:

  1. Subject name being on the top of the infobox rather than the image (this would be done for all the relevant infoboxes)
  2. Removing the Examine section, and moving the examine text to the Properties section
  3. Replacing Exchange history with a Grand Exchange section, and moving Exchange price and Buy limit from the Values section to there

To help visualise the changes, here is a side-by-side comparison of the infoboxes from RSW and OSRSW, respectively:

Support 1,2 and 3 - I'll avoid making the Motorhead joke that I really want. However, Could add in one that uses multiple iterations to showcase how it works in those instances. Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 03:18, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Oppose 1, Neutral on 2, Support 3 - I don’t particularly like the space between the image and the test without the blue header due to the vertical line. Meeeeerds msg 03:22, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Oppose 1,2, support 3 - I do not find 1 visually appealing - the spacing around the picture feels wasted whereas with the current solution it blends into the article. I do not like the examine being in the properties section because an examine text can be an undefined length of text. Long examines would mean squeezing text into a row which loses the conciseness of the properties section. However should we implement 3 I'd want the examine section above Values like osrsw (not below like it is currently).

Support 1, Neutral 2,3 - I've always found the tiny image above the wide name header to be abhorrent, and seems out of place when compared to the widths of the rest of the infobox. I have no strong opinions on the rest. -dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 04:47, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Comment - What happens if you have a really long examine? It looks fine for a single line, but I feel that it starts to degrade once it wraps. cqm talk 12:33, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Oppose 1, Support 2,3 - I've been vocal about disliking the header above image on osw before, it doesn't look good especially for location images/other images that aren't transparent and fill the entire area, having that hard seperation is better. iN008talk 15:12, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Oppose 1, Support* 2, Support 3 - I support the the examine section, but the text still needs to be it's own line, and not to the right of the label. The label should probably still be centered above it then. Also not sure that weight belongs under value? Also agree that the graph should still have a title, maybe "Historical graph", "History" or something like that. Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 07:26, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Soft Oppose 1 & 2, Support 3 - I support the proposals regarding the exchange info. Part of me likes the header above the image, but I also don't like that there is no hard seperation below the image and information though. I wonder what it would look like if we were to put the examine info directly below the image, so that it wouldn't have its own section per se but would be in its own area, without a header, and also act as a bit of a seperator? I think this would also still look nice if the text needed to wrap. Just my thoughts... (See this image as an example  RS AdvLogMyles Prower  Talk 02:28, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Oppose 2, Support 1+3 - Examine needs to be prominent and centred. 5-x Talk 17:01, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

Oppose 1, Soft Support 2, Support 3 - The little icon looks out of place above the header, but placing it below looks worse in my opinion. Examine text realistically isn't important enough to gameplay to be given such importance, but I can see why others would place more value in it. - Sahima (Talk) 23:33, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Oppose 1, support 2 + 3 - jayden 12:57, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Support 1 and 3, oppose 2 - I think the examine text would look better right under the item icon, with no "examine" header, as is already done in the PT wiki. It's not a value, and placing it in the middle of the infobox together with practical information has no benefit. Raven (blue).png Crowborn (Talk) 18:33, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Oppose 1 and 2, support 3 - per Haidro. User talk:ThePsionic.png: RS3 Inventory image of User talk:ThePsionic ThePsionic Special:Contributions/ThePsionic.png: RS3 Inventory image of Special:Contributions/ThePsionic 20:12, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Oppose 1 and 2, Support 3 - I prefer the image being on top and leaving the examine text in its own section, but grouping all GE stuff together sounds good to me. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 06:47, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Oppose 1, Soft Oppose 2, Support 3 - Don't like the empty space between icon and next line on 1. For 2, the osrs version works well for short one-line examines, but the current one looks better for anything longer. Californ1a (talk) 21:06, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Strongly oppose 1 - I designed the solid bars in our infoboxes to bookend the vertical lines. As others have said, swapping the name and inventory image makes it look like it's floating around in space. Iiii I I I 00:22, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

Support 1, Neutral 2, Support 3 - I agree with others that 1 causes the column divider to hang somewhat awkwardly, but I think it's even more awkward that the image hangs off the top of the top of the infobox — it's something I've noticed just casually using pages as I get back into RS. (The same awkward divider thing will happen with the GE section if 3 goes through, but it's harder to tell in the screenshots given because the OSRS version has contrast around the graph that helps with the bookending effect.) As for 2, I suspect most examines are short enough for change this to be fine (although I have no immediate evidence for that). I think the examine section cuts between the two value-related sections a bit awkwardly as it is now, so I kind of like Myles' suggestion of moving the examine into the icon area in combination with moving the icon below the name.

Closed - There is consensus to implement the third proposed change of creating a Grand Exchange section. There is no consensus to make the second proposed change of moving the examine section and so this should not be changed. There is significant opposition to the first proposal of moving the subject name and so this change should not be made. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 20:51, 22 November 2019 (UTC)
