Infobox docs info needed

Can someone provide what exactly is supposed to go into:

  • chapter_list
  • related
  • content

Either here or in the template docs?

You're talking about {{Infobox Asian comic series}}, right? Using {{{chapter_list}}} will turn {{{volumes}}} into [[{{{chapter_list}}}|{{{volumes}}}]] - basically it's for linking to the list of chapters/volumes article. {{{related}}} is for extra stuff that doesn't fit into the other fields - it will be the title of the header over that part of the infobox. {{{content}}} is whatever data you want in the related section - could be drama CDs, links to articles on video games or anime series based on it, or whatever. Does that help any? --Eruhildo (talk) 01:08, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
A bit... it at least gives me 1) an idea of how to fill out the three in the infobox docs and 2) that I missed something in cobbling the 'box together (the chapter_list usage). - J Greb (talk) 23:14, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
Try taking a look at {{Infobox animanga}} - it has a lot of similar features. The template Infobox animanga/Other functions the same as {{{related}}} and {{{content}}} do for this one. I think you'll find the examples very helpful. --Eruhildo (talk) 00:13, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
hrm... that is a difference between using {{infobox}} and a tables build... I don't thin the multiple iterations (the Sailor Moon example) will work in the templated version. - J Greb (talk)
No, probably not, it would be far too complex (and that's not even the biggest example we have, off the top of my head, Saint Seiya has 14 components, not counting the header or footer). However, is there really much of a need for subcomponent functionality with manhwa and manhua (and OEM)? Do they typically get adopted into animated, live-action, and drama series; movies; other comics series; videogames; etc.? —Dinoguy1000 17:16, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
To be honest, I don't know. I doubt it for the OEM/OEL, but the other may. That would mean that the fields may be useful, but only as a "catch all". - J Greb (talk) 21:37, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
All I can think of off the top of my head is Ragnarok. We could split the related section off into an /Other template if it won't be used much. As for the animanga examples, I thought it showed well how the various parts work - I didn't mean we need to implement all that stuff. --Eruhildo (talk) 06:00, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
Aah, of course - I was just pointing to a really big example, was all. —Dinoguy1000 14:47, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia 0.7 articles have been selected for World comics

Wikipedia 0.7 is a collection of English Wikipedia articles due to be released on DVD, and available for free download, later this year. The Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team has made an automated selection of articles for Version 0.7.

We would like to ask you to review the articles selected from this project. These were chosen from the articles with this project's talk page tag, based on the rated importance and quality. If there are any specific articles that should be removed, please let us know at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.7. You can also nominate additional articles for release, following the procedure at Wikipedia:Release Version Nominations.

A list of selected articles with cleanup tags, sorted by project, is available. The list is automatically updated each hour when it is loaded. Please try to fix any urgent problems in the selected articles. A team of copyeditors has agreed to help with copyediting requests, although you should try to fix simple issues on your own if possible.

We would also appreciate your help in identifying the version of each article that you think we should use, to help avoid vandalism or POV issues. These versions can be recorded at this project's subpage of User:SelectionBot/0.7. We are planning to release the selection for the holiday season, so we ask you to select the revisions before October 20. At that time, we will use an automatic process to identify which version of each article to release, if no version has been manually selected. Thanks! For the Wikipedia 1.0 Editorial team, SelectionBot 23:26, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Does your WikiProject care about talk pages of redirects?

Does your project care about what happens to the talk pages of articles that have been replaced with redirects? If so, please provide your input at User:Mikaey/Request for Input/ListasBot 3. Thanks, Matt (talk) 02:32, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Sources in FURs

Right now I'm going through Category:Comics images lacking original published source and sorting the images by work group. The world related images are at Category:Comics images lacking original published source/World.

If it's ok, I'm going to ad this clean up to the "to do" list.
