Template talk:Level

Proposal: Instead of adding this template manually to the articles, implement it to {{Npcbox}} and use parameters for it. There are probably better ways to make this template more functional as well, such as using arrays. And of course this proposal will likely add a new task for things to do (update articles to make use of the Level template). Just an idea to actually start using something like this and better automate things. — Surafbrov T / P / C 21:14, 25 September 2020 (UTC)

I'm all for better methods, and implementing it within the template could make things easier. One concern I have, though, is that changing it at the template level could break all of the infoboxes for removed and Classic NPCs, but if that can be addressed then it's certainly worth exploring.
Either way, I imagine we'll be doing most of the changes with a bot and then manually correcting a few outliers. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 22:41, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
Probably best to keep the functionality available for removed / classic NPCs. Will need to brainstorm this idea and make a sandbox for this. Will notify the Discord and update here whenever I come around to that (unless someone else wants to jump on it). — Surafbrov T / P / C 22:25, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
