Template:WPNOVELS2[edit]

Weird... Airplaneman talk 04:49, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Tagged for CSD. Can't seem to figure out why it was even made. Its the same as this one with one color change...and isn't used anywhere. -- AnmaFinotera (talk · contribs) 04:53, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

A poll[edit]

Propose replacing this template with {{WPNOVELS2}} for color reasons (blue on read is especially unattractive).

  • Support. Materialscientist (talk) 05:10, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Don't support - purple and light blue don't go together either. Sadads (talk) 05:52, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
    I guess you meant the header. Have a look now. Materialscientist (talk) 06:08, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Support - better for my eyes, personally. Airplaneman talk 06:03, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Since it was deleted, I'll be WP:BOLD and add some new colors :). Airplaneman talk 07:09, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Undeleted until resolved. Materialscientist (talk) 07:12, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
OK, undid my revision. Airplaneman talk 07:17, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
While I support the idea of better colors, I don't think the new one is very readable either. The headers blend into the boxes too much. Why not make the headers the light blue from the current template, the boxes white, and then the header something other than orange/yellow. -- AnmaFinotera (talk · contribs) 08:38, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
You are welcome to design your version, for example within {{WPNOVELS2}}, (duplicating content within the template - it is not functional right now anyway). Materialscientist (talk) 08:55, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Support Needs a new look.-- iBentalk/contribsIf you reply here, please place a talkback notification on my page. 18:44, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

OK, I'm being bold and fixing the colors. I'm going to request deletion of the duplicate after doing so. Airplaneman 04:28, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Why? There is not a clear consensus supporying those specific colors. While most folks agree that new colors would work, there were objections to the specific ones in the duplicate. -- AnmaFinotera (talk · contribs) 04:30, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
OK. I'll think of some new colors; for now, I've CSD'd the duplicate. It's a pain to update. Airplaneman 04:35, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Task force[edit]

Hi, can I add a link to the CHERUB and Henderson's Boys task force. It's currently situated at WikiProject Children's Literature. I'm hoping this will not be a problem, but I just wanted to check with you guys first in case you were opposed for some reason. Thank you.

Fine with me :). Please also add to Template:WPNOVELS2. Airplaneman talk 05:38, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
OK thanks. Rock drum (talk·contribs·guestbook) 12:46, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Harry Potter task force[edit]

WP: HP redirects to a WP Novels task force since July 2012. For some more information see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Novels/Fantasy task force#Why not just, Wikipedia: WikiProject Fantasy --my yesterday remarks which include links to contemporary discussion or lack thereof.

The Harry Potter task force is not listed in this navigation template. Does WP Novels accept the move? Are there are other subpages that should be listed? --P64 (talk) 15:43, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

The Navigation Box: Colour Scheme[edit]

The colour scheme in use in the Navigation Box is outrageous. I think it needs an immediate makeover. Bubka42 (talk) 04:17, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Made some changes. The problem with using maroon on the section headings is that the 'Show' link is virtually invisible. And I could not find a way to change the colour of the showlink. This page has doesn't offer much: Help:Collapsing (except the part about editing the .js file - can anyone find anything useful from that? e.g., instead of changing the hide-caption, any option for changing its colour.)
