Hi Russel, so I'd like to get all of the wiki's infoboxes converted from tables to actual templates by November 5th (give or take). I can handle the nitty gritty details of the implementation, probably with my bot, but I need your help/confirmation standardizing which variables are going to appear in a given infobox. It would help me if you could request a database dump from the middle/bottom of Special:Statistics (for some reason that right is not in my usergroup, but the cause of that is a problem for another time), and then I could scan the wiki for any article that uses a table containing
wiki-sidebar and update those pages.
I know that for starters, many/all of the pages about books do not have real infoboxes, and instead use direct wikitext tables. For example, A World of Darkness. Does this particular page have every variable that you think is necessary in the infobox for a book page? That is, "written by," "development," "layout," etc. Are there any that it's missing, or any that should be removed? I ask because other book pages, like World of Darkness: Storytelling System Rulebook, have somewhat different variables (e.g. "interior art"). Let me know what your thoughts are and I can make that the standard layout for book pages. Thanks. —Atvelonis (talk) 19:28, November 2, 2019 (UTC)
