Currently if an NPC plays a role in more than one quest or appears in more than one location, there is inconsistency on how that information is displayed in the infobox. The information is either separated by commas, listed with bullets, or separated with <br />.

Bullet point usage can be seen here.

<br /> usage and comma usage can be seen here. The quests are using <br /> as a method of separation, while the locations are using a comma.

I propose this be standardised and added to a style guide to ensure the articles are consistent. I would like to implement bullet points as the way to display the list of quests and locations within the infobox. I feel bullet points are cleaner, less confusing (especially if the names are long and the text wraps around) and are easier to read than commas or <br />.

Support - A standardised style guide for the quest and location sections of the NPC infobox should be implemented to ensure consistency from article to article. Bullet points should be used to separate the listings so they are displayed in a non-confusing, clean and concise manner.

Support - Bullet points ftw! Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 00:54, December 25, 2017 (UTC)

Support - The bullet point list is neat and tidy. Is there a way for the infobox to "know" that there is a bulleted list and say "Locations" (plural)? If so, I propose we implement that because when it says singular "Location" and has a list, that bothers me, but I may be the only one who cares about this.  RS AdvLogMyles Prower  Talk 16:50, December 27, 2017 (UTC)

Could just modify the template itself to say "Location(s)". Pernix cowl detail.png MAGE-KIL-R (Talk)Zaros symbol.png 17:24, December 27, 2017 (UTC)

Closed - A style guide for NPC infoboxes can be created and the style above (using bullet points to seperate quests inside the infobox) can be implemented. Farming-icon.png Salix (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 13:23, January 2, 2018 (UTC)
