As you may have noticed, I've recently started to update a few location pages for some games. It's been quite entertaining, but as it commonly happens in a wiki, there will always be people who may not like some of the new changes. What I'm talking about is the inclusion of Dialogue Tables within articles. The main reason I think they should not be included within an article is because they tend to be quite big (sometimes extremely big, even in conversations between only two characters) and I feel they end up cluttering up the page, forcing a user to scroll down big blocks of text if they want to read a section below the dialogue.
There's a little more backstory to this, however (keep reading). A few months ago I asked Nagumo if she could modify dialogue tables in a way they could be set to appear collapsed by default (they mysteriously turned to black if that function was used), and if the user desired, just press a link to expand them (you can read the conversation HERE). This conversation went on for a few days and was plain for all to see. However, no one said anything against it and just let her work in vain. Nagumo was finally able to come up with the solution but, as soon as I started to use her new modifications, I started to get my editions reverted. Thus, all of Nagumo's hard work was just thrown to waste.
- Note: You can see how a collapsed dialogue table was supposed to work HERE.
Now, I've been putting all dialogue pages in a separate sub-page. I considered leaving them in the same page as the article if they were short enough but, no matter what, even the shortest ones ended up being big tables with a lot of text. Again, no one contacted me or asked me to work on a solution, and I'm just watching how my editions get reverted and the new sub-pages deleted every time (and I must confess, it's quite demotivating).
