I have many times visited a weapon's page just to see it special attack stats. But if the page looks like this Granite maul, then it's very annoying that the special attack doesn't have it's own Infobox to quickly lookup the special.

Infobox Special attack fields:

  • (Image of special attack)
  • Special attack name
  • Cost
  • Effect

Fields in () is not required.

This is my first nomination in Yew Grove, so bear over with me if i did something wrong... Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 18:58, March 14, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - Can't we just add another section to the page with that info? Having 3 infoboxes on the pages would be a bit too much imo. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 19:02, March 14, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - It would make the page more cluttered, and there is absolutely no reason why we can't incorporate the information into other, better suited, parts of the article. Suppa chuppa Talk 05:06, March 15, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Neat 'n' handy. @Joey: Then make a ==Special attack== section. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:51, March 15, 2011 (UTC)

Ye, but that would fill up the entire page with only infoboxes. I think that would make the page look bad. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 11:41, March 15, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - Easily explained in text (and IS explained in text on all weapons with special pages). Also, some specials are not short little "+5 to attack" like Enhanced excalibur or Dark bow. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 17:07, March 15, 2011 (UTC)

Prt support, part oppose - Add it to the stats infobox or whatever it's called instead. -Hourglass (2011 Hallowe'en event) detail.png I Am Myself Talk III The Spark.png- 17:09, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

Comment-Creating a new infobox would clutter up pages too much. I can support it as an addition to the stats infobox, but not as a new infobox. Jarvald 19:14, March 22, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - We usually just include it in the bonuses infobox when it doesn't do the one thing we all hate. Obtaining the popout class so it doesn't override or become overwritten by the WikiaRail. The only way to solve that would be to just change the thumb size and just tell the users to click the image to have the lightbox play it out. Ryan PM 16:10, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

Closed - The infobox will not be implemented. ʞooɔ 19:09, March 30, 2011 (UTC)
