I've been editing this wiki for quite some time and have come to realize that we should start using universal formats to make things more organized. You know, just formats for the monsters, cities, NPCs, and much more. I'll use a skill formatting as an example.

Skill Page Formatting[edit source]

This is the formatting that the Fletching Article uses which looks nice to me.

Skill is described in a short description.

Discussion[edit source]

I'm not sure how the other articles should be formatted, so go ahead and post your ideas and feedback.Krayfish 01:20, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Indeed, i agree it would be great to format some pages, but what do you think of herblaw? In fact I think thats the most complete page of the wikia. Bones and Logs are very good articles as well. ZorakTalk

I updated the skills template to mirror the style and format that you see in the game. Ideally I'd like to give all the navigation templates a more "RS Classical" feel to them. I think this could help give the pages some style and kinda looks fun. What does everyone think? I'm welcome to feedback and I'd be happy to tweak the design if anyone has suggestions. I'm planning on making a nav template for each part of the RSC in-game menu, so if any one else has ideas along these lines, let me know. Cheers, Tollerach (talk) 20:21, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

I like the new skill template, it looks pretty nice, but it's so big. It looks good otherwise. Maybe it would look better if it was added to like the top sides of a skill article instead of at the bottom? Nex UndiqueTalk 02:00, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Skill template looks pretty good, though it would be better at the top of the page. Krayfish 17:04, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the support. I thought templates like these might be nice. How about moving the template to the top right side of the page? The way, it would be visible, but somewhat out of the way of the main text of the article. I'm also investigating code to try and reduce the spacing between the skills. That would make the template a bit smaller and also look more like the RSC menu. If anyone knows how to do this, feel free to change the template. Cheers, Tollerach (talk) 18:46, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

Closed[edit source]

We basically used this format for quite some time, and this discussion has been quiet for quite some time. Sirnot1 22:26, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

Also, I think we should make a policy regarding this. I'll probally make a Yew Grove/Voting Box later. --Sirnot1 22:27, October 10, 2010 (UTC)
