A while back, User:Psycho Robot proposed that we add stat-related values to Exchange pages . I thought this was a good idea, though it needed to be reworked for some of the reasons listed in that thread.
I would like to do the same thing, but this time, it should be done in the mainspace itself within subpages. This would fix all the problems originally listed by User:Azliq7 (who many people per'ed) and make the programing of calculators quite a bit easier. It would also compress the size of the item stat table in edit mode, and is overall more useful for other things.
I encourage everyone to read the thread I referenced before commenting as I left a lot out in the above paragraph. It was all covered in the original thread.

Slight Support - Seems like it would be helpful for calculators. Can you please clarify the "other things" they would be useful for? I'm assuming you would transclude the Stats Subpage onto the Mainpage? ʞooɔ 23:45, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
- The data from the subpage will be translated into a template used on the main article page. If done correctly, only the image parameter would be required. Check the link given above. 00:07, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

Proposal Retracted - I am working with Tlul to change the nature of this proposal. It will be more complex, but much more useful in the end. In the mean time, there is no reason to keep this thread up.23:20, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
