Template talk:Infobox graphic novel
This infobox is one of the known formats of comics (webcomics, newspaper comic strips, graphic novels, editorial/gag cartoons and comic books). Along with the known international comic terms (manga, bandes dessinée, manhwa, fumetti and tebeo), this could create 11+ types of infoboxes in Wikifur.
The common comic information cross-reference all over these formats, so it will not overstep/delete present information sections. But there is right now two infoboxes (webcomic and graphic novel), and they information/format therein already differs.
Recommend merge into a general Template:Comic infobox with a Format genre section (i.e. [Format: Comic book], [Format: Newspaper comic strips], etc) before we create multiple redundant templates all over the Wiki. - Spirou (talk) 17:28, 15 September 2014 (EDT)
- Support: I think move to Template:Infobox_comic is a good idea. --EarthFurst (talk) 16:55, 15 October 2014 (EDT)
- On second reading, think you are suggestion webcomic infobox be merged with this infobox. Would be hesitant to merge the two. My current preference is there be two infoboxes: Infobox_comic (for printed comics) infobox_webcomic. However do recognize webcomics can make it into print and visa versa. Hmm. --EarthFurst (talk) 16:53, 16 October 2014 (EDT)
- Warming to the merge idea (since webcomics get printed, and print comics can become webcomics). Now think the webcomic-only portion of the infobox is the URL line. If merged: would prefer URL line be near top. --EarthFurst (talk) 23:11, 16 October 2014 (EDT)
- Not into this particular template per se, but yes, a new universal/generic comic template where as all the above formats can be used with. I have started already on a test template to use as "proof-of-concept" for further discussion/maybe approval, but I have yet to work further with it (time+RL+work+etc), sry.
