Barinellos'[edit source]

I'm having some trepidations about including Dack on this list, in part because that would mean we should add Sifa as well. If we do that, then Baltrice might as well come in as well. What I'm so laboriously getting around to, is posing the question of if we should only include walkers with actual cards or informed identity (IE the game characters) or should we further expand the neowalker list?Barinellos 21:48, 15 April 2012 (EDT)

Length[edit source]

This list is getting rather long and unwieldy. Can somebody try to make it mare compact or collapsable? Thx. --Hunter (talk) 18:02, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Template purpose[edit source]

Looking at this, it looks like this template is listing not just neowalkers, but all planeswalkers who have received Planeswalker cards. Several member of the list were 'walkers before the Mending. At the very least, Freyalise is dead, and Teferi sacrificed his spark in the build-up to the Mending. I suggest that either this template remain as-is, listing card-holding planeswalkers, in which case it should be renamed ("Planeswalker_cards", or similar), or it should be trimmed appropriately to the set of post-Mending walkers. --Corveroth (talk) 22:07, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

I would like to update it to hold all planeswalker, also the ones without cards and dividing them into carded and not carded planeswalker. - Yandere Sliver H09 symbol.png 02:38, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Columns[edit source]

While I agree that the list was a mess, I do not think columns have improved the situation in the slightest. This layout introduces more problems with the color icons, especially on smaller screens. The text wrapping becomes harder to read, and the column heights become inconsistent. I'm in favor of simply removing those mana icons from the navigation and incorporating it into the planeswalker's infobox (probably in the form of a list, cardlinking each variant with its colors). Commander info could either be removed, or used as a subgroup for the cards. While it would be nice to separate the walkers by color, I see no practical way to accommodate all color combinations within a reasonably-sized navbox without high-maintenance duplication. --Corveroth (talk) 04:52, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

Well, the list had the advantage that I could properly view the thing on my tablet. Right now is doesn't even wrap properly. I think when we clean the colors and commander info from the nav it would be very helpful. - Yandere Sliver H09 symbol.png 21:04, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
Hmmm... Well, I put the columns to help visualize each planeswalker by its colors. I think it's fine. But, if you remove the colors, then obviously there is no need to have columns. Should they have the colors or not? I don't know but somehow I like to see them by their colors.--Tuamir (talk) 23:36, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
I think there's definitely a place to have the planeswalkers sorted by their colors, but I'm increasingly thinking that the navbox is not that place. If we could trivially sort them into five color categories, perhaps, but the existence of multicolored cards and multiple printings complicates that. I'll propose that we move that information from the navbox out to the list of planeswalkers. --Corveroth (talk) 00:04, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
Also this is how it looks on smaller screens: this. The standard nov box does not handle columns well, this is why template:Navbox with columns exists. But even if we update the logic I fear the nav box will still be overloaded. Yandere Sliver H09 symbol.png 00:59, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
I put the template:Navbox with columns. How it looks now on smaller screens? --Tuamir (talk) 02:31, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
At 720px width, and with my browser set to identify itself as an iPad, this is what it currently looks like. --Corveroth (talk) 03:18, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
