Color[edit]

The blue used in the Cal logo is darker than the one depicted in the template. However, being a Wikipedia noob, I don't know how to change it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.179.109.161 (talk) 04:35, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

I may have originally been using an approximation of Cal's athletic colors when I did my first overhaul of this template. I've changed the colors now to those mandated for the seal of the University here, converting from Pantone to HEX as closely as I can. --Dynaflow babble 12:28, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
The colours currently (October 5th 2008) used for the UC Berkeley template are those of the UC system, not UC Berkeley. UC Berkeley's official colours are Yale Blue and Golden Yellow, as I have indicated and referenced in the infobox. I shall take the liberty of changing them to the correct colours? —Preceding unsigned comment added by WorldAtlas (talkcontribs) 00:53, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
The official (university, not athletic) recommended colors from the Cal campus style guide are as they were before, per page 1.2.1 of http://identity.berkeley.edu/downloads/ucb_design_style.pdf, as translated from pantone to hex. (874 metallic doesn't translate well to screen colors, so I'm using the 540 blue/139 yellow combination.) --Dynaflow babble 07:44, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Template size[edit]

First, great work on the template, it looks great! However, it is huge, and while for some pages this is fine, on others it's 3 or 4 times larger than the article! It would be alot of work, but might I suggest sub-templates? Such as having this template on the main article, and then little templates for each section. Like the Athletic pages would have an athletic sub-template that only links to:

Big Game • California Memorial Stadium • Haas Pavilion • Oski • Stanford Axe

I think it might be cleaner.

Anyway, good work! --Falcorian (talk) 23:58, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I'm not sure which template to use for pages like UC Berkeley School of Optometry. Should it be the smaller 'academics' template or the main large one? Is there a rule? Paul Haymon (talk) 07:50, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
Normally I'd say use the small template that has a link to the article, so that's what I've done! --Falcorian (talk) 08:21, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! Unfortunately, I altered the other school and college pages for UCB in that same way already. I'll revert them. Paul Haymon (talk) 10:12, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair Use[edit]

Also, not allowed to use the Fair Use Logo in the template as per Wikipedia:Fair_Use#Policy #9. So I'm removing it. --Falcorian (talk) 01:03, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Duplication & merge proposal[edit]

These templates are all duplicates of the content in this template. I propose that they all be merged to this one template. --Zackmann08 (Talk to me/What I been doing) 03:47, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
