Show/Hide function[edit]

Could someone perhaps consider adding a Show/Hide function for the very rapidly increasing task forces section (with more on the way), as it is getting very long and beginning to warp some pages. I say this particular section because they are subsects of this project, and not essential and vital project pages. --.:Alex:. 20:04, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

I can / will. I was actually thinking to do so with the majority of the sections, perhaps except for the first one. --Izno (talk) 00:32, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
I have boldly changed the template. Feel free to edit at will, but please discuss here. --Izno (talk) 03:40, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
Is there a reason this is better? Doesn't just make it more difficult to quickly navigate pages? I don't think we had any problems with the size of the template on any pages previously. Also, this change has kind of broken the layout structure on Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games. JACOPLANE • 2008-06-30 13:43
It looks a little weird. Is it possible to refine the asthetics of the template and perhaps make it SHOW by default? --.:Alex:. 14:19, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, that would be easy to do, just change from "class="collapsible collapsed"" to "class="collapsible"". JACOPLANE • 2008-06-30 15:19
I personally like it. Let's face it, a big-ass template is a pain in the ass to have lying around. Having just the main parts of the project shown by default is much cleaner and easier to grasp. Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 15:33, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
Re: Alex: It's possible, but I personally wouldn't like it that way. I'm with Fuchs here; collapsing everything but the main part of the template makes it look much better to me. If there are certain higher-use-items than others, then perhaps the template should be reorganized. --Izno (talk) 18:06, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
Also, what do you mean it kind of broke the layout on the main page? --Izno (talk) 18:08, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
It's the page layouts fault, not the template, it just looks a bit messy without the sidebar going down the entire way. Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs (talk) 19:18, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
Could someone at least fix some of the asthetics of the template. It looks a little weird if you know what I mean... It is nice to hide some of the really long sections though. --.:Alex:. 20:14, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Could the "departments" section be made to show initially, instead of hide? User:Krator (t c) 22:17, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes I agree. I find myself using those links on a day-to-day basis. --.:Alex:. 13:05, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Direct Info from Turtle Rock Studios[edit]

I have a contact inside Turtle Rock Studios, he has agreed to give me information for the page. Hopefully this can also be acomplished for Valve studios. Does anyone have a means of contacting them? Samus Fan102 (talk) 04:22, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

New template[edit]

I merged this template to {{WPVG sidebar}} and added a few tweaks such as shortcut and archives template integration right into the sidebar. Any thoughts or objections on replacing this sidebar's transclusions with the new template? czar  15:03, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
