Discraft wiki project pages
This page is part of a series of pages which relate to the Discraft Wiki project itself, and not to the Discraft game, as such.
This Operation was thought up by TrisquelWhare (Tris) soon after the first use of an Infobox on the Discraft Wiki. It was plainly obvious that the FANDOM defaults for Infoboxes were not going to cut it as options for us, and something needed to be done about it. Rather than an ad-hoc creation of random Infobox templates, Tris has decided to create an Operation to coordinate a smooth transition for creating and releasing replacement Infoboxes throughout our wiki. Ironically, this very Operation page was created with the {{Infobox book}} template at the top of it initially, adequately demonstrating the need for custom Infoboxes on our wiki!

Scope

Existing-infobox-templates

A screenshot of the list of pre-existing Infobox templates, to preserve historical accuracy. All except {{Infobox player profile}} and {{Infobox toolset}} are FANDOM defaults.

Because Tris set out originally to use Infoboxes on every Articlespace page, the scope of this project covers a large number of pages. With the exception of {{Infobox player profile}} and {{Infobox toolset}}, these are the default Infobox templates provided by FANDOM when the Discraft Wiki was first created...

As you can see, they don't even begin to cover the type of content that we would expect to find in the Discraft universe.

Categories

This Operation will leave the existing Templates/Infobox category intact, for historical purposes, and supplement it with a new Infobox Templates category to contain all of the templates which we create as a product of this Operation. Please make sure, when you're creating a new Infobox template as part of this operation, that you assign it to [[Category:Infobox Templates]] and not to [[Category:Templates/Infobox]]. Thanks.

Categories for administering the Operation

This Operation uses two new, temporary Categories to administer the Operation itself. They are Operation Infoboxes/To Do and Operation Infoboxes/Done. One of these Categories will be automatically applied to any page when you add the {{Operation Infoboxes}} Template to a page, with either the |todo or |done values (respectively) as the first parameter. For an example of this in use, see the Lootbox page. Please remember to simply replace the |todo with|done in the existing template when changing the status of the page. We don't want any page to be classified as both "To Do" and "Done" at the same time, haha.

Achievements

Once this Operation begins, and throughout the duration of the Operation, any edits made to pages which are in the Operation Infoboxes/To Do Category will count towards editors receiving some special Achievements alongside your regular Achievements. It is expected that any such edits during that period will be for the purpose of contributing to the goals of the Operation. However, any edits to these pages, and not just edits which help the Operation, will count towards these Achievements, so we expect that editors will respect the objectives of the Operation, and not try to game the system. There are special Discraft Wiki:Operation Infoboxes Achievements which will be enabled only for the duration of the Operation, and can only be earned during that time. Here is what they will look like...

Badge-operation-infoboxes-bronze Badge-operation-infoboxes-silver Badge-operation-infoboxes-gold

These awards will remain in your own Achievements list and the points will count towards your position on the Leaderboard even after the Operation has ended.

Consistent style for new templates
