RfC: Wikidata in infoboxes, opt-in or opt-out?[edit]

Wikidata has begun to be automatically imported into infobox fields. Should this be opt-in or opt-out? Please take part in the discussion at Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)#RfC: Wikidata in infoboxes, opt-in or opt-out?. Curly Turkey 🍁 ¡gobble! 01:18, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

Template:Types of state[edit]

At the bottom of State (polity) is the infobox Template:Types of state. At first I thought it was a navbox, but apparently not. I was rather confused by it, as it was collapsed, yet its references were displaying. Is this an appropriate way to format and display an infobox? It also appears in a few other articles.

I made a change to WP:INFOBOXIMAGE to clarify that Module:InfoboxImage should be called if it has been implemented in your infobox. If you are adding images to an infobox that doesn't implement all the parameters the module offers, then you may use [[File:...|frameless|upright=...]] etc to access the same functionality. It would be great if the module was working on all infoboxes but if it's not you can still do what you need to do. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 16:59, 11 August 2016 (UTC)
