Can anyone think of any ideas on how to shrink this? It's getting huge. --PandoraX 05:51, 11 January 2007 (PST)

Others & Dharma

I think these should be split. They are not the same group--Gluphokquen gunih 12:34, 4 April 2007 (PDT)

  • I completely agree but with some items it's hard to choose whcih object belongs too who. Maybe we should keep it as it is for now? DrGiggles 13:04, 4 April 2007 (PDT)

Template split idea

We could merge the "Flashback character" templates with the "Objects" template. For example, the Template:Nav-ClaireFlash could be merged with Claire's items in Template:Nav-Objects. The end result would be a new template called "Template:Nav-Claire" that looked like this:

Claire Littleton
Portrayed by Emilie de Ravin

What do you think?-- Dagg talk contribs4 8 20:35, 10 April 2007 (PDT)

  • I would agree with this idea. I had previously been trying to come up with ideas in the IRC channel on ways to alleviate this problem. However, I couldn't find a suitable idea. However, with everything grouped in to one simple template, it would run much smoother. --Marik7772003 20:39, 10 April 2007 (PDT)
  • That's the greatest thing since the A-Mission sectionbox. --Blueeagleislander 20:40, 10 April 2007 (PDT)
  • I like it too, but we do need to hyperlink "items" and have a new page, perhaps a portal, as we need a full item list somewhere that isn't just in cat. For instance, its fine doing specific flashback navs, cause there's also a link to the main flashback nav which lists it all in one page. --Nickb123 (Talk) 03:24, 11 April 2007 (PDT)
  • I like this idea--Phil 04:05, 11 April 2007 (PDT)

Cool, I went ahead and added Template:Nav-Claire, and I changed Claire's flashback characters (just by redirecting the old template) and changed her items to use it.-- Dagg talk contribs4 8 08:42, 11 April 2007 (PDT)

Items portal

  • Yeh i agree but as nick said we definitely need a full list somewhere as well as this template. DrGiggles 04:07, 11 April 2007 (PDT)
I wouldn't format it in that way, as it'll be one huge page. I'd do it under subheadings. I might have a sandbox attempt at it too. --Nickb123 (Talk) 05:44, 11 April 2007 (PDT)
I would just do it like with the flashbacks, i.e. like this: User:Nickb123/items

--Nickb123 (Talk) 05:55, 11 April 2007 (PDT)

Or maybe just a simple wikitable. Whatever, --Nickb123 (Talk) 05:56, 11 April 2007 (PDT)
First, sorry I've messed up discussion now... I'll remove and post a link above. Now, we need to decide, on my link User:Nickb123/items - style 1 or style 2? --Nickb123 (Talk) 06:06, 11 April 2007 (PDT)
And I'm just trying to figure out why that is --Nickb123 (Talk) 06:29, 11 April 2007 (PDT)
