I have copied this from my talk page for additional input from the community. --Icon class jediknight.png Alianin T C 15:23, 28 November 2011 (UTC)


I'm wondering if mission rewards should be included in the infobox. Some missions have a lot of awards, and they are unlikely to play nice with any sort of infobox documentation. I might be better to simply include them within the body of an article.

I've also got something planned for mission chains, something a bit more useful than next/previous. On several projects I've worked on I've implemented a mission chain list. You can see it in use on the Champions Online Wikia. This game doesn't have many chained missions, save the story lines, but a similar structure may prove beneficial. What are your thoughts? -- Heaven's Agent 05:16, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Maybe we can include just any monetary and commendation reward in the infobox and put the gear in the article. I've noticed the missions tailor the rewards to the class, which is nice but makes for lots of differences.
For mission chains, I was thinking we could leave the Previous/Next in the infobox as a quickview and then have a section in the article for mission progression. --Icon class jediknight.png Alianin T C 13:30, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
I'd rather include all the quest rewards in the infobox, or none at all. It seems almost disinfomative to do otherwise; new users may not realize when the see rewards in the infobox that there are others only listed in the body of the article.
The only concern I have with placing the quest chain within the body of the article is that it will stretch the article vertically. I've found this to be fairly disruptive to an article's design and flow. By placing them within the infobox, it utilizes space that would otherwise remain largely unused, create a stronger right border, and list information alongside the rest of the article. This would improve the article's overall readability, as well as reduce the likelyhood that the article will suffer vertical stretch due to long lists. -- Heaven's Agent 14:40, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
