Looking at Forum:Add location images to character pages, I decided this idea could be useful too. We could merge [[Template:Relative location]] into Template:Infobox City, [[Template:Infobox kingdom]], [[Template:Infobox island]], and Template:Infobox guild. We could leave [[Template:Relative location]] by itself for standalone uses. It could benefit greatly, as then pages that had viewing issues like Varrock could get it fixed and the relativelocation could be moved down instead of creating a very hard-to-read article because of Oasis. Thoughts? --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 13:53, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - I'm sure it's possible to move it down and keep it as a standalone template. Besides, I don't think the article looks hard to read at all. The issue I have with adding it to the infobox templates is that the location of every city/kingdom is not know. If I asked you to point out where the Motherland was, for instance, what would we say? --LiquidTalk 19:03, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

I said "We could merge Template:Relative location into Template:Infobox City, Template:Infobox kingdom, Template:Infobox island, and Template:Infobox guild. We could leave Template:Relative location by itself for standalone uses.". Gawsh, are you people blind?! IT SAYS SO EXACTLY ABOVE! --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 01:27, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
Don't get mad. He said the exact thing as I did. You are the one who is misunderstanding, not us. We are saying the actual template could be moved below the infobox. You're making a fool out of yourself. ʞooɔ 02:36, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Support - This is something I've wanted for a long time. Having two separate templates clogging up the top of all our location pages just doesn't look good, and creates a lot of weirdly-shaped paragraphs and other text/image issues. I appreciate that on some pages, we don't know the exact locations and would probably just have to put "unknown" in the relative location fields (as Liquid pointed out), but these types of articles are fairly uncommon. Although the relative location info. would be redundant in these cases, it wouldn't actively interfere with the page like the current template often does. I think that the positives far outweigh the negatives in this case. Quest.png Morian Smith Saradomin crozier.png 19:41, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Changed to Neutral - Since others have pointed out that it's apparantly easy to just realign the template so that it's below the infobox, either way seems fine to me. Quest.png Morian Smith Saradomin crozier.png 13:16, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - We can just make it go below the infobox. No need to merge it. ʞooɔ 20:34, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Did you even understand what I said? That's what I exactly said. I said "We could merge Template:Relative location into Template:Infobox City, Template:Infobox kingdom, Template:Infobox island, and Template:Infobox guild. We could leave Template:Relative location by itself for standalone uses.". --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 01:24, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
No, my friend, you misunderstand what I said. I said absolutely nothing in support of merging. I mean putting the actual {{t|Relative location}} below the infoboxes you mentioned. Not merging it. Before you tell me I don't understand something, make sure you do. ʞooɔ 02:31, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose and request for move - No need, and request for move to RS:RFM. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 20:57, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Not really. It's to merge an infobox into one, not a page. This affects many pages, so it's best to have it here. ʞooɔ 20:59, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Don't see why not. Matt (t) 21:16, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Because it's useless extra work that could be accomplished by aligning the template below the infobox. ʞooɔ 21:24, November 21, 2010 (UTC)
...Which would be super-hard and would probably take up alot of code. --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 01:25, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
Lol! No it wouldn't. That can be done using a simple align right... ʞooɔ 02:36, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
Changed to Oppose - Per all. Matt (t) 10:16, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Just stick it in the main article, and leave it. Real Crazy 21:19, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - No need, really. If anything, might make things more complicated. Suppa chuppa Talk 21:25, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Oppose - Per above. HaloTalk 01:45, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Easier to position it on each page being 2 separate templates rather than one. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 06:09, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - If it is bothering us so much, place it below the infobox, don't further expand an already massive template. 222 talk 09:20, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Neutralish - While I don't want it to always be attached to the infobox, I would like to see it as an option. This way, the relative location box could be detached from the infobox, but can be attached if it works better with the article format.

Compromise - place it under the infobox, not in. This will save work. It has already been suggested by others, but this will draw a little more attention. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 12:11, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah but how? We must make it easier for the editors, not the coders. --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 14:18, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
That does make it easier for the coders. All we need is to add an align right on the location template. It's all around easier, and separates the two infoboxes to make it cleaner. Your idea would be a completely unnecessary and extra work for quite literally no gain. ʞooɔ 21:37, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I get it. Now I'll BB and do that. --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 22:50, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
Never mind, mission failed. --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 22:53, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Cook's comments throughout this thread. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 22:13, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

This request for closure is complete A user has requested closure for Merge Relative location into Location Infoboxes. Request complete. The reason given was: Per RS:BB. It needs no consensus to align the template to the right. And as most people seem to agree with the placing it under the box instead of inside it, this could probably be closed.

Withdrawn - Would someone just please add some align code so it aligns to the BOTTOM OF THE INFOBOX? --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 14:18, November 23, 2010 (UTC)

Hola? - Senor no feliz... And by the way would somebody work on the [[Template:Relative location]] so it can align to the infoboxes? Thanks. --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 14:44, November 26, 2010 (UTC)

K... Done. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 22:14, November 29, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - The infoboxes will not be merged, but relative location will be/has been right-aligned under infobox location. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 22:42, November 29, 2010 (UTC)
