The automatic categories already create a listing of all Card pages, with multiple ways to search, and using a navbox like this makes it difficult to search for links through the what links here section. I don't think we need this template."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 21:33, 18 April 2011 (EDT)

TNE said that she approved on the idea of a Navbox on the Featured Article page. Besides, it does make it easier for whoever reads it. Chitalian8 21:44, 18 April 2011 (EDT)

I created it specifically to make navigation easier. TNE pointed out that, even though the Kingdom Hearts Trading Card Game page is the page about the TCG, it linked to no Card: pages. I only just found all of these card categories, so I assumed that a passing reader might not know where exactly to look. But, in the end, if it is deleted, I will personally remove its uses because I basically went ahead and did all of this without asking about it first.

Having one main directory is not that hard to do. Even before that is finished, Category:Kingdom Hearts Trading Card Game serves exactly the same purpose as this navbox, without interfering with special:whatlinkshere."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 22:40, 18 April 2011 (EDT)

My main point is that the TCG article itself linked to no card articles. Would it be a better idea to limit this template's implementation to only that page, as it doesn't lead directly to the card category? Said solution also wouldn't interfere with the What link's here.

Actually, I just found Card:Base Set. I would reduce the template to pointing at the four set pages (some of which may still need to be made), and linking those from the main TCG page (either through navbox or simple linking). That would work quite satisfactorily."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 13:24, 19 April 2011 (EDT)

That would work perfectly! My only concerns are 1) Should it really be a Card: page? It isn't really a card... but it is still in the card universe 2) The formatting needs to be changed a bit, so that the list is in more of a tableish thing, I think. Other than that, sounds like a good idea. KRCCFNF is tired of being STEPPED ON. 17:16, 19 April 2011 (EDT)

Keeping the card info in the Card: space (excluding the main summary page, which works as a portal) would make it easier for readers to search for card-related info."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 18:17, 19 April 2011 (EDT)

Would something like this work for a page format (of course it would be doubled up so that the page didn't stretch on for miles)?. KRCCFNF is tired of being STEPPED ON. 18:52, 19 April 2011 (EDT)

Also, the original I made had the card image in the first column. KRCCFNF is tired of being STEPPED ON. 18:55, 19 April 2011 (EDT)
I'm not entirely sure a table is necessary (really, I don't think it's even worth putting the rarities here), since this should mainly be a directory."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 20:00, 19 April 2011 (EDT)

That's fine. I just thought it could be more astechtically pleasing. KRCCFNF is tired of being STEPPED ON. 20:06, 19 April 2011 (EDT)
