Request for Comments[edit]

There is an RfC on the question of using "Religion: None" vs. "Religion: None (atheist)" in the infobox of individuals that have no religion.

The RfC is at Template talk:Infobox person#RfC: Religion infobox entries for individuals that have no religion.

Please help us determine consensus on this issue. --Guy Macon (talk) 23:58, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Infobox question[edit]

I am trying to use the Template:Infobox civil conflict for a civil conflict involving three parties (see Input on proposed infobox on the Talk:Selma to Montgomery marches page. The issue is the width of an infobox to incorporate three parties becomes too large. Is there a way to redesign the infobox to display each party in a horizontal section versus a vertical section? Or, disconnect the "Parties to the civil conflict" or "Lead figures" section from the infobox with a link in the infobox to the disconnected sections? Not sure where to go on Wikipedia to examine this issue. Thanks. Mitchumch (talk) 06:49, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Persondata RfC[edit]

An RfC regarding the methodical removal of Persondata is taking place at Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals). Thanks, —Msmarmalade (talk) 07:42, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Need to create Infobox on atmosphere[edit]

Currently, all articles dealing with the atmosphere of a planet, do not have an "atmosphere" infobox template. Instead, many use a custom-made table. Some have nothing at all. I am requesting the creation of such infobox, or help creating it. Thanks, BatteryIncluded (talk) 18:34, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

I can help; please give links to some of the articles. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:01, 10 May 2015 (UTC)


Great! After, I should present the prospect infobox template to the Solar System Project for review before displaying it live. BatteryIncluded (talk) 19:26, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

@BatteryIncluded: Thank you. The matter is complicated, because there are at least four different kinds of infoboxes. Jupiter's has a column comparing values to those of the Sun. Mercury's has columns for two types of measurement. Triton's has separate columns for 1989 and 2010. Mars' more like is what I expected to see, and what I would recommend. However, I think wider consensus needs to be obtained first, given these differences. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:42, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, and the infobox can bring some order. Partial pressure can be easily converted to percentage (which is more understandable), or add that parameter in addition of percentages. Comparisons with the Sun could be left in the article body. Triton's will use the data obtained in situ (1989). It would not be straight forward but am sure we can work out a draft we can discuss with the Solar System Project and reach a consensus on the parameters to include. What do you think? Thanks.
