  • The character navigation boxes the Gundam wiki is currently using are way, way too large and unwiedly, to the extent that they're completely unhelpful for use in actually navigating the site. The Universal Century characters template is the most egregious of them, because that continuity is so large. Just look at some of the shorter pages, such as Elle Vianno— the navbox is so huge that it's longer than the actual content!

    I propose the following changes:

    1) The creation of new character navboxes, broken down by series: "Mobile Suit Gundam characters", "Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam characters", "Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ characters", and so on. This would make things much more focused and useful. Going back to my example of Elle Vianno, someone on that page would be much more likely to want to navigate to other ZZ characters than immediately jump from there to, say, Zeon Zun Deikun.

    2) If the continuity-wide character templates must be kept, it should be made collapsible, and collapsed by default. This is how, for example, the Final Fantasy Wiki handles their templates, which are indeed quite huge.

    • For an illustration of what I mean, check out my sandbox, which now has two navbox templates as they would appear at the end of a character's page (in this case, one from CCA).

    • Totally agree that the current infobox is useless.

      I would like to suggest that the character infobox should be collapsible. If you want to keep other topics in the infobox, then some links in See Also at the bottom should do.
