It's not possible to vandalize this page. The only thing that could get you in trouble on this page is somehow inserting malicious links.Glorious CHAOS! 04:50, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

I completely disagree. See this revision. I find the inserting of terms such as "some asshole" and "destroy this wiki" vandalism. --DTN Room Core.png 05:02, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

I mean, seriously. Guys, if someone goes along the lines of "Destroy the wiki" and such, it's obviously vandalism, no matter where it is, even if it's in the Sandbox. Smite 'im ! Agi Idup Agi Ngelaban ! 05:15, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

I get that guys like that, we need to keep an eye on, but on every other wiki, the point of this page is to let users figure out how to wiki-code so that they don't make that kind of mess everywhere else. I don't see why there should be any kind of restrictions on what is posted here, so long as it's not malicious content like goatse or something.Glorious CHAOS! 00:10, May 31, 2010 (UTC)
True. At the end of the day, it goes back to the intention of the person editing the sandbox - that's something we have to find out for ourselves. TROISNYX Symbol - Bell.png AMDG 00:57, May 31, 2010 (UTC)


Is it possible to keep or have a personal sandbox on your userpage?--Lord Captain Cecil Harvey 02:03, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

Yes. Simply make a page titled User:Lord Captain Cecil Harvey/Sandbox. maggosh 02:08, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

Collapsible Template[edit]

Following our discussion here, I tried experimenting with the collapsible template since the current template we have kinda screws up the format on the articles (see Ava's page). Unfortunately, coding isn't my forte. So, I tried using a generic template and played around with the colors a bit. How does it look? Do you think it could work on the articles? It'd be better if someone more skilled with this stuff tries tinkering with it. Anyone got any recommendations for improvements?--NinjaSheik 20:11, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

I removed some of the unnecessary coding and made the borders round, because I think that looks better. I left the option to auto-collapse it and change the width, but apart from that it should require the same input as the current canon template, which means we won't have to change any of the code on the pages.

This information is based on alternate scenes or materials and is not considered canon within the overall plot of the series.
Having watched Player defeat countless Heartless throughout Daybreak Town, Gula commends them on their abilities. Gula suggests that Player should fight alongside the other Leopardus Union members to defeat larger Heartless and then leaves them to defeat a Darkside. Once the Darkside is defeated, Gula reappears and warns Player that there are others who collect light for nefarious purposes. Gula allows Player to discern who walks the path of darkness before he departs.
Agreed. I tried testing the revised template you made with Ava's article since it was my main concern. Everything is fitted with the width of the page, so it doesn't look awkward anymore. Is there anything else to consider for improvements? If not, is everyone in agreement with implementing the template?--NinjaSheik 18:10, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
I made the border bigger and darker to make it stand out more. Other than that, I don't see anything to improve. TheSilentHero 18:29, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, looks really good! In which case, unless there's any objections, we should implement the collapsible template. I've been re-reading the Foretellers' pages and I want to see if I can revise more things now that I've cut down the "fat" of what Levi657 originally had (I was waiting for Levi to add more content before doing more, but said user hasn't shown up in a while), but I was worried that doing so would make thing look more awkward with the current format with the Canon templates. With the collapsible template, that means that we can delete the Template:Canonend now since we don't have to use it anymore, correct?--NinjaSheik 19:02, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, looks to me like it works. For whatever reason, it doesn't collapse by default on my phone, but I'm assuming that's because the whole thing is hard-coded onto the page instead of the template being separate right now. Other than that, it looks good! Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.pngKeybladeSpyMaster Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png 19:28, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
No, we have to keep the canonend template. We could remove it, but that would mean we'll have to change the code everywhere, and by keeping it we can just update the template and be done.
@KSM: The template isn't collapsing by default, but it can be by using |collapsed=*. TheSilentHero 20:13, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
Personally, I think using one collapsible template over two templates that work in conjunction together is much more preferable and easier. But it's a community decision, and that's my two cents in the matter. If someone can change the code so we don't have to use the Canonend template, I'll volunteer to replace it on the articles. It won't be bother, and can be done rather quickly. I think there's, like, 30 pages that actually uses the Canon and Canonend templates?--NinjaSheik 18:37, 26 July 2018 (UTC)
I feel it'd be better without the canonend template. According to this page, it's only 52 pages that use it. It wouldn't be hard to remove, could even just manually remove it using the KHWikiBot account. Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.pngKeybladeSpyMaster Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png 05:44, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
The main issue with combining it into one template is that now those passages are passed as arguments to the template, and in my experience they don't always display the way you want them. Right now, they're just material in the middle of two div tags."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 12:12, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
If that's the case, maybe we can do a test run? Create a separate template page to host the collapsible template that doesn't need the Canonend template to function and test it out on main space to see if works properly? If it doesn't, we can just delete it, and just replace the current coding on the Canon as originally suggested?--NinjaSheik 17:48, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
Coding the text inside the template isn't hard, and I'm sure I can make it work like it should. TheSilentHero 17:53, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
Please do, THS. When you're finished, we can test it out. I've seen templates like this on other wikis, and they don't seem to have problems with it, so I'm sure everything will work out. :)--NinjaSheik 20:59, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
All right, I updated the template. I've already changed the code on Ava. It's probably better to use the bot for the rest. The code is:
|what's inside the template
|condition/header text (optional)
TheSilentHero 12:03, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
All right, looks really good and seems to be working properly. I also tried it on Xehanort's page. Using the bot would be best since it's faster.--NinjaSheik 18:27, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
