Template talk:Sydney Trains

I have created a new template that incorporates all of Sydney's public transport modes and has a lower profile. One major change is that the template now lacks colour-coding. The colours used fell short of usability best practice (yellow especially) and blurred the line between encyclopaedia and CityRail brochure. Apologies to whomever did all the work with the colours.

ok, someone went completely bug-eyed working on the sydney city rail project, and I'm not sure I know enough about SCR to fix it correctly. here's the major issue, though... apparently, the color for each line is contained in a separate file, all by itself, and this is (apparently) only used to change the color of separator dots. that makes no sense, and is a big waste of resource. if you guys need to have the colors in a separate template, they should (at least) be together in a single template, using parameters and a switch statement, and you ought to do something more noticeable with them then coloring single dots.

I don't want to commit a lot of time to this, but let me know if you want some help setting it up. --Ludwigs2 21:22, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
