Template talk:Infobox video game

There are no discussions on this page.

@Osiris, Chenzw: You two were the last to edit this stable template. Could you possibly review the undocumented changes made by an IP user to see if they are an improvement to the template or something that needs to be reverted. Etamni | ✉   11:13, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Not exactly sure if this is an improvement in the context of this wiki, but the anonymous editor essentially copy-pasted the EN version of the template here. This copy-paste has also the unfortunate side-effect of categorising hundreds of articles (probably this wiki's whole collection of video game articles, if I hazard a guess) into Category:Infobox video game with deprecated parameters. I will take a closer look later, after I finish replying to the AN thread. Chenzw  Talk  15:52, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
The change to the template has caused any article which passes any one of the below parameters:
  • |aspect ratio=
  • |followed by=
  • |footnotes=
  • |input=
  • |latest release version=
  • |latest release date=
  • |latest preview version=
  • |latest preview date=
  • |license=
  • |media=
  • |picture format=
  • |preceded by=
  • |ratings=
  • |resolution=
  • |requirements=
  • |website=
  • |version=
...to appear in the maintenance category. For reference, the removal of these parameters from the infobox were previously discussed on EN. While I agree with some of the removals, in the interest of stability and because the template change has inadvertently caused some information to stop displaying, it may be a better idea to revert.
Waiting around to see what Auntof6 and Osiris think. Chenzw  Talk  16:36, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
