I created two clan userboxes that could be made into templates. One for the player and one for the vampire, but I am unsure of where to put them. --Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 05:30, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

User-/Vampbox categorization

The sibling categories User Templates and Userboxes — is there a defined distinction between them? --deCarnacT·C 18:33, 2 August 2012 (CEST)

That got a bit (a lot) out of control. I never figured out to fix it. There are some subcategories as well with just a few entries. Maybe simplification is a good plan, or better subcategorization. My brain hurts just by thinking about this topic again. My minds seeks for a perfect plan. But it won't come up with one. I leave it to you to decide. --Cliff Burton Marco 01:18, 6 August 2012 (CEST)

There are lots of great User-/Vampboxes (hereby referred to as Boxes). I would like to help categorize them to make them easy to browse. If I understand it correctly, the distinction between them is based on intended use. Vampbox: character page; Userbox: user page or character page.

That's correct. --Cliff Burton Marco 01:18, 6 August 2012 (CEST)

About the Flagbox/Largebox/Superbox categories: currently it seems all existing Userboxes and Vampboxes use either the Flagbox template or the UserTemplate (which by default have the Flagbox format). Some boxes are/were categorized as flagboxes because they included {{FlagboxDoc}}, later superseded by the more specific {{UserboxDoc}} and {{VampboxDoc}}. [[Category:Flagboxes]] seems redundant when all User-/Vampboxes match the criterion. I suggest simply letting the ending "-box" mean 250px wide in a template context, unless the name include say "Large" or "Super" as well. This will make the naming of Box subcategories easier. I created the subcategory [[Category:Clanboxes]] to begin with. May continue with [[Category:Foodboxes]] etc. Does this sound like a good categorization scheme?

Yes, that's a good idea! --Cliff Burton Marco 01:18, 6 August 2012 (CEST)
Work underway. Just 200+ boxes left. May take a while. --deCarnacT·C 15:30, 6 August 2012 (CEST)

Changes summary

  • Modified {{UserboxDoc}} to take a parameter for box category. Used this in the categorization of most userboxes.
  • Created new subcategories for the most common topics. All got names ending with "boxes".
  • Categorized all userboxes to either [[Category:Userboxes]] or its subcategories.
  • Nationality and U.S. State categories also got new names. Member boxes and discussion pages were moved, box gallery remained and linked to.
  • "Remnant" categories (more or less empty) were moved to [[Category:User Templates]] for now.
