New Templates

Yo Shi and I(MadYoer) have made some infobox’s that might be helpful. I made the one for People and Yo Shi made the one for Tricks (He said mostly picture tricks), they both look great, check them out.--Madyoer (talk) 23:03, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Pad Sizes

There have been multiple instances on the forums that I'm on of people buying the wrong size response pads for their yo-yo's because that information isn't available from the stores. I was wondering if we could include a "Pad Size" entry underneath the "Response System" entry in the main info box for yo-yo articles in the Collection section? The only problem that I can see with this is for something like the 888 which has had response system & pad size changes through multiple editions, yet those editions don't have their own articles for the individual info to be added.

What do you think?

  • Of course! That kind of information would be great to add. We're always happy for people to add useful information to our articles. :-) --Wilfred 11:36, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
  • How would we go about doing that then? It seems that the main info box has some kind of special formatting that won't show just anything that you put in there. Is there a template that this category needs to be added to before it will show up? I guess the info could just be added as a section in the regular article field like I added to the envy page. What do you think? --eNons3nse 07:15, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Ah, ok. The infobox is slightly more funky. The info about it is at Template:Infobox simple. If you're not sure about editing it I'd be happy to do so, however it is aimed at being generic for all yo-yo model pages. This means I'm reluctant to add a 'pad size' line since many yo-yos don't have pads. I'm open to suggestions. --Wilfred 23:59, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Oh. I can see that making sense. It might just be better to put the info as a new section in the actual article then. There would be more room for specifics, like if there are different pads for different editions like in the case of the 888. I'm gonna see if I can start rounding up info from the community to get as many yo-yos covered with this info as possible.
