This template is obscenely huge. Is there any way to have all the subsections hidden by default instead of open by default? Kaldari 19:06, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

I agree that the template is way too big. What I propose is that the MTV Networks section (which takes up nearly two-thirds of the template) be split into a separate template; like Template:TBS was off of Template:Time Warner, or NBC Universal was from GE. I definitely would not be able to split it though. Any other suggestions? --Squeak 02:56, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
How about converting it to {{Navbox generic}} like Template:Time Warner ? It appears to be the current navbox standard and the default state is collapsed. --Geniac 12:55, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
That would be awesome. Kaldari 17:57, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
Taking another look at it, that MTV Networks section needs split off also because it has sections of its own (Channels in North America...Closed channels). I can't work on this more today, but if nobody does so by tomorrow, I'll create two sandboxes; one to test a {{Navbox generic}} version of this template and one to test a MTV Networks navbox. --Geniac 19:26, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
Ok, see Template:Viacom/sandbox. I'll get the MTV Networks one done later. --Geniac 20:26, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
Ok, see Template:MTV Networks. --Geniac 21:42, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
I made a few minor changes, let me know what you think. Otherwise I think these are ready to go. Kaldari 22:38, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

(de-indent) Cool beans. I had linked to the MTV Networks template only because I saw that's how Template:Time Warner did it. The changes to this template since this discussion started have only been to the MTV Networks section, so I've updated Template:MTV Networks to reflect those changes, then replaced this template with the sandbox version. --Geniac 02:38, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

For some reason the templates still don't show up as collapsed by default for me. Wonder why. Kaldari 04:53, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
I forgot to put collapsed as the state parameter. Could you do the same for {{MTV Networks}}? I am not able to edit that template at this time. --Geniac 20:01, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
Done. I've gone ahead and fixed the footer templates for all the MTV Network articles (all gazillion of them). Kaldari 22:54, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

The CW4Kids and 4Kids TV under the BET Networks banner???[edit]

How in any way is Viacom associated with both The CW4Kids and 4Kids TV??? First of all, both are mere programming blocks are programmed by 4Kids Entertainment, which is a company of its own. Second, CW4Kids is seen on The CW, which is co-owned by CBS and Time Warner. Third, as for 4Kids TV, it is seen on Fox and MyNetworkTV, both are owned by News Corporation. As far as I know, Viacom, nor BET are mentioned anywhere in the articles in relation to CW4Kids or 4Kids TV. WIKIVUE Detroit (talk) SUN JUN 15 2008 12:25 AM EDT | 4:25 AM UTC
