Replacing this template[edit source]

It's a bit surprising that a wiki of this size is using what is essentially a "starter wiki" template. Aside from that, the colour scheme of this template makes it pretty obvious that this template was stolen from another wiki, or at least that it sticks out like a sore thumb.

I suggest maybe replacing this template with an infobox that closely matches the one we already use, such as {{Sim}} and {{Object}}. This infobox template can then be used as a metatemplate that can be used to build other infobox templates. (For example, here is the wikitext for a metatemplate infobox. The metatemplate infobox is used to build other infoboxes, like this.

Thoughts? Our current infobox system is extremely complex, and as it stands it's really difficult for us to create new infoboxes that follow the same standards. Having a single infobox metatemplate that other infoboxes use helps to maintain a consistent standard around the wiki. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 19:26, June 22, 2017 (UTC)
