Structure of template[edit]

All others are seperated by years, why should this one be any different?--TheMovieBuff (talk) 18:45, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

  • I agree with TheMovieBuff. Unless someone has only directed a few films, then I could see the current template as acceptable. However, Chris now has seven films to his credit as of this writing. There is absolutely no reason for the template to not be like all others. - Cartoon Boy (talk) 20:18, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
    • Splitting these director templates up by decades is a completely arbitrary structure. It works for directors like Woody Allen who has scores of films, but at the moment splitting it up for Nolan does not help readers navigate. Nolan, at the moment, has too few films for this structure to be useful. -- Wikipedical (talk) 01:14, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
      • I’ve been splitting up the decades, and I agree with TheMovieBuff and Cartoon Boy. There is NO reason that his template should be any different from those of other film directors. 67.238.37.237 (talk) 06:58, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Nothing is being accomplished by repeatedly reverting each other's edits. --Boycool (talk) 13:55, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Is there an in-between solution that could be used? I understand how Following is oddly presented as an outlier. What about combining the 1990s and the 2000s and leaving the other fields? If The Dark Knight Rises begins production, it can be in the same row as Inception. Erik (talk | contribs) 14:58, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
