Per a discussion here sub-pages for the things unlocked with new levels were made. I bring this up due to noticing the lack of main space templates for these, the table for example is run off of Liquidhelm's sandbox (see here for current table) I find they should have their own template outside of just a sandbox, along with a template for linking to the table as they might not be very well known currently. Now down to business: the templates, the current one, while decent can indeed be improved I find that something along the lines of a "Notes" section would be useful, for other requirements and such, and for the link template the idea is straight forward I think. I'll post a preview of what it would look like below (1 will be the table, 2 for link).

1 I'll use magic levels 59-61 here since it gets it might get my idea across.
Level New abilities Notes
Level 59
  • None
Level 60
Level 61

Also as an FYI (M) would stand for members for those who didn't get it, I was originally thinking of a members section however I'm lazy and as it didn't line up properly I couldn't bother to fix it up.

2 As I said this is pretty straight forward it'd be a template to put on the skill article for links to the level up page for example it would say along the lines of:

To see the things unlocked with each level in (skill name) see (skill name/level up table)

This would serve of giving it some more traffic meaning it would become obviously more well done as they're very lacking at the moment as checking through quite a few of them revels nothing more than the table on it. Anyways that about sums it up. Korasi's sword.png Archmage Elune  TalkHS Void knight deflector.png fetus is my son and I love him. 04:56, May 4, 2010 (UTC)

Regarding the link to the to the sub-page? I was thinking more of a template (like here). I'd be bold and make it myself but my experience in templates is lacking, on top of which these pages were made in haste IMHO (look at the differences of the Magic table, defence table and the cooking table) obviously there wasn't anything set regarding how to set up these tables which is why I thought to start a YG thread about it.

I don't quite understand but I'm not really interested in this sort of thing so don't try explaining it.Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 10:21, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - So you want to make the level up tables into templates?Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 20:26, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Not sure if I'm understanding correctly, but you have a different template for each level of each skill? Isn't that more work that just having it on one page without transclusion? ʞooɔ 07:28, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I can already see a problem with the notes for the lvl 60. Farming cape (t).png Lil cloud 9 Talk 20:37, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Request for closure - Nothing is happening and there is very little activity.Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 12:46, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

Can someone tell me why we have Templates for all of the levels for each of the skills? All it's doing is cluttering up the WantedPages, and it doesn't really have any use as far as I can tell. ʞooɔ 19:16, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

I haven't a clue, and I agree. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 20:23, June 20, 2010 (UTC)
I don't know either, when i made some of them I completely deleted the templates as it can make it less neat. I kinda want them deleted.Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 07:31, June 21, 2010 (UTC)
User:Rich Farmbrough implemented the templates, I believe. I'm certain he has a valid reason why there are templates. I'm guessing it is much more easier for new users to edit single, simple templates when adding an abilities list than scrolling through a long page, looking for the right number.

If you look at some of the one i made like Agility/Level up table i have made sections every 10 levels because these ones are quite long, also new users wouldn't know how to edit the templates, i mean it took me a few days to work out where the templates where because they were so confusing.Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 07:57, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
Breaking it up into individual levels kinda makes sense because it means the data can be used in other uses besides a single big level table. Right? I dunno. Now that I think of it, I can't think of any way to make use of the data other than a single table... Also I oppose adding all the different details. That info should stay on the page it relates to. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 06:16, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - Discussion has died down, and there is no consensus. I suppose that this forum could be recreated at some point, but this one is going nowhere. ajr 23:22, August 24, 2010 (UTC)
