I noticed that this template floats left. While it's a very small box, this doesn't look quite right when compared to the other, centered nav boxes in the Mars and related articles, such as Phobos (moon) and Deimos (moon). Can someone with the authority change it so that it centers? Nihiltres(t.c.s) 15:39, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

YesY Done Actually, it wasn't a float to the left, it was vandalism in part of its CSS. I've reverted the vandalism. --ais523 15:45, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
Aha. Thanks for fixing it - it looks much nicer now. Nihiltres(t.c.s) 16:00, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

How to prevent template links appearing on What links here?[edit]

Each article that includes this footer causes the Special:Whatlinkshere to include a link to every other article. This makes the Whatlinkshere a lot more difficult to use. For example Hellas Planitia now has some 120 linkins, whereas before the Footer I doubt there were 20. Don't get me wrong, I like the navigation box, but it now spams the linkin list. -Wikianon 19:21, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

2 Broken Important Links[edit]

Noticed that Mars Exploration Links are broken or missing from this Mars Footer. The "Exploration" Link is broken in the title and non-existent in the body. Tried to fix myself but apparently still couldn't get the syntax correct so i changed nothing. Thanks.

I'm not sure which links you say are broken. The Exploration link worked when I tried it. Also, did you want it repeated in the body of the template because other editors have resisted whenever I have put something as both a title and in the main space.

A Planitia is not a Mountain[edit]

Why is Elysium planitia included among mountains ? It's a plain region that includes several mountains, but it's not a moutain itself. It should be among regions. (talk) 17:59, 22 January 2010 (UTC) Luc D.

Valles Marineris[edit]

Yes check.svg Done Not sure about the placement, but at least it is on there.EncMstr (talk) 17:04, 26 June 2010 (UTC)}} Valles Marineris ought to be on this template somewhere. --Harald Khan Ճ 08:14, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Very high template[edit]

  • Now it is a very high template. Maybe divide it in some smaller templates (geography, astronomy, exploration)? NickSt (talk) 00:37, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
@NickSt - Thank you for your comment - yes, perhaps a "collapsible" section may be a solution (see Template talk:Comets for examples) - especially if others also view this as a problem (so far, no one else has afaik) - for now, should note that the following code may be useful => adjust the usual { {Mars}} code in a particular article page of concern to { {Mars|state=collapsed}} instead - a more global solution of a "collapsed" (rather than the current "autocollapse") template is also possible of course - in any case - hope this helps in some way - Thanks again for your comment - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 03:17, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
@NickSt - Thanks for your comment - the template seems ok to me at the moment - however, collapsing or removing a section may be possible - especially, as before, if others are also in agreement - in any regards - Thanks for your comment - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 21:43, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
