Suggestions[edit]

Any suggestions on how to format this template? - Peregrine Fisher 18:32, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

I added a new group titled video games, and moved the video from the media section to the video game section, i ordered the video games in the date of release. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dareheaven (talkcontribs) 13:05, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

By Crom, this navbox is too large to behold![edit]

Aye, it is too large. Even Bel would have a hard time stealing this. Can we condense or split the box up? It practically fills a 1280x800 screen on its own. Jappalang (talk) 07:46, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

The first solution that comes to mind is taking the first few sections and consolidating them into a separate list (List of Conan the Barbarian stories and collections or some variation thereof) and linking to the list in the template. That should get rid of the bulk of the template. Joiz A. Shmo 04:06, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
I've been bold and reformatted the template to have hidden sections, based on the format of Template:British overseas territories. I may have messed up some of the other formatting by doing this, as I don't completely understand the stuff I copied and pasted into this template. It looks ok to me at the moment but someone might want to go through it later and clean up a bit, just in case. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 12:42, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Actually, I've had second thoughts on that style, so I've redone the template in a different format, using sub groups contained within collapsible groups. It retains all the information and links but it doesn't normally take up as much space at the bottom of the page. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 17:51, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Aye, well done, this subgrouping contained within collapsible groups look good. I have done my part by ensuring the story section properly wraps around using this. Thanks to Davidgothberg. Jappalang (talk) 02:56, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Red Sonja removed. First, it features no Conan. Second, Red Sonja is a Marvel Comics character. Even Kull the Conqueror would ba more acceptable, as it, after all, is based on R.E. Howard's character and story.--Garret Beaumain (talk) 16:24, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Sugesstion for creating a different section for the Age of Conan series[edit]

Hello. I'll like to suggest that maybe we should have a seperate section for Age of Conan as according to Funcom it's officially a series and we will see new releases pertaining to the series in the future like a sequel to Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures or Age of Conan: Unchained as now it is called. It can have headings like Main series, expansions, locations, characters. ThePariahOne (talk) 15:08, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
