So.. This Wiki's Talk Page has nothing huh? Let's Get Started :D
Guidebook Data Edit
The guidebook has character info boxes for each character that was deemed noteworthy enough.
It contains the following information: ki type, age, birthday, height, weight, measurements (female characters only), hobbies, likes, dislikes, grades (for those who still go to school), dreams for the future.
Currently the infoboxes already have entries for ki type and age. I think we could add fields for birthday, height, weight and maybe measurements. The other information might belong more into the trivia section. Could someone maybe edit the infobox template? I'm new to wikia and don't dare to mess with it.
Also, how do I deal with characters that have "refused" to give out certain information? For example Mikumo Kushinada's weight says: "That is not something you ask a woman.", Shigure cut down the poor guy who asked for her measurements, Natsu told his interviewer to "Get lost" when asked about his hobbies, and nobody who went to find out Kisara's weight ever came back. In those cases, should I leave the field blank or insert what is written in the guidebook? Naishode (talk) 21:56, December 13, 2014 (UTC)
- I'll do that and, after sleeping a night over this, I think it might be okay to add hobbies, likes and dislikes and grades to the infobox after all. Mostly because I'm too lazy to write "His/her hobbies are "abc", s/he likes "def" and dislikes "ghi"" on every single character page. Or is that a stupid idea and I should just get over my lazyness? I'm still not quite sure where to put "dreams for the future". What do you think should be included?
- To give an example for the guidebook profiles I'll just use Mikumo again.
- Age: over 90
- Birthday: December 24
- Height: 179 cm
- Weight: That's not something you ask a young lady.
- Measurements: B: 108 cm, W: 62 cm, H: 99 cm
- Hobbies: Driving, golf, horseback riding
- Likes: A spring breeze
- Dislikes: Midsummer
- Dreams for the future: I left them behind on a faraway day...
Another request: could someone maybe add fields for "Japanese" and "Romaji" to the character infobox template? I think it looks nicer the way it is done, for example, on the techniques page than on the character pages. Especially, when you have kanji, the reading in kana and the romanization for some character and try to fit that somehow into multiple brackets. It looks rather messy. (and somewhat OT, but do you think it's a good idea to add one field for the voice actor(s) as well?) Naishode (talk) 10:10, January 27, 2015 (UTC)

Full chapter namesEdit
no, how it now is, is orderly putting long ass chapter titles behind it is both stupid and unnecessary since the article itself already contains the full chapter title at least two times, once in the infobox and once in the section next to it. OnePieceNation (talk) 22:03, January 26, 2015 (UTC)
List of disciple/master by class Edit
There seems to be many discrepancies between character articles, Class, and the three paths. Some characters appear sometimes in one path and/or class, and sometimes in others. If I were to clean this up, could we say that I use the individual character's page as the criteria for the lists in class and path?-- 17:48, January 28, 2015 (UTC)
Looks like wikia really wants us to use the new infobox format. I could edit the templates and change them to the new format (Old box / my draft), but an admin will have to edit the wikia css to make them look like the old boxes. Here's a website where you can play around with the look. I think we might need different classes if we want to keep the yellow and the purple infoboxes. Or we could just make them all the same color. Should I go forward and replace the old boxes? Naishode (talk) 20:58, December 1, 2015 (UTC)
- I made drafts for all infoboxes I could find. I hope I didn't forget one. (chapter, episodes, arc, martial art, character, mouse, technique) We could theoretically replace the old boxes whenever an admin modifies the css. Naishode (talk) 23:20, December 4, 2015 (UTC)
- Edited the boxes a bit and made a blog post with samples/css. -- Naishode (talk) 13:29, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
