Appearance[edit]

I think it looks a bit ugly now. :( — Chameleon

Well that's a bit subjective, isn't it? Objectively, though, even if you don't see it, the new version was more compact (it took up less horizontal space), and to me it also looked better because there were no nested lists adding excessive indentation. As with the title of Spanish verb paradigm, do as you please, but it's not nice to revert someone else's changes like that. --Pablo D. Flores 15:54, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Yes, I know it's subjective, but aesthetics have to be a consideration. Also, your version wasn't more compact. The width of the box is determined by the width of the image, which you didn't change. I'm not totally against changing my design, but your change just didn't make it better, IMHO. How about making a draft here? — Chameleon 19:15, 7 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I forgot that every user may have different font settings. In my setting, it was more compact. In your version, the text was wider than the image, because it was a large font (Verdana) and mostly because of the indentation. The nested tables can be adjusted better (while the indentation of a list cannot, unless we use HTML and lots of style settings). I'll paste a draft here tomorrow if I can. --Pablo D.

Colours[edit]

(copied form Talk:Spanish alphabet)I'm colour-blind, so I don't see colours the same way as most people, but strangely I am often objectively correct. I mean, my girlfriend says that my box is mauve or violet too. I suppose that you'd agree with her that the photo of the keys is blue. I think you're both wrong. The box is rgb(88%, 88%, 98%), which means that there is almost the maximum amount of blue, and equal amounts of red and green. So, it's blue. The photo of the keys is more like rgb(67%, 79%, 96%), which makes it a bluish cyan. I don't know whether this is a colour-perception thing or a computer-screen thing. Maybe I should make the box cyan; it might go with the green. — Chameleon 18:45, 9 Jun 2005 (UTC)

You have to consider the fact that we don't have the same number of receptors for each colour. The box is defenitely violet, and the keyboard has a blue tint.
I would defenitely prefer to change the ugly green in the Info box for languages in Spanish language (familycolor=lawngreen), but there's already a color system, and some "very flexible" people not willing to change it... -Mariano 10:36, 2005 Jun 10 (UTC)


What hav you dan to may buitifal calars?!? Well, I have to admit it goes better with the language-box's green colour. But its a pitty to loose that vanderfal violet. Use it somewhere else, don't let it extinguish!! (I shouldn't edit in my sleep...) -Mariano 07:02, 2005 Jun 13 (UTC)

Oh dear, was that some accent? Hmm, anyway, feel free to edit the box colours if you like. :) — Chameleon 08:37, 13 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Nah, never mind. Had to complain though. What, you've never been to India? Mmm, maybe I shouldn't have written that, now I will be prosecuted for racism or something like that! Thanks God for Wiki-tolerance. -Mariano 09:22, 2005 Jun 13 (UTC)

Image and text[edit]

Picture and text of caption are misleading. In modern Spanish is "Don Quijote" with "j" - "jota" [1] (English). The template is about spanish language. Not for the literary work in english. --IM-yb (talk) 16:27, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

agreed, no image is better. Frietjes (talk) 13:25, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
