Pathfinder Wiki

Further Modifications?[]

The second section of this template is rather full. I was thinking of separating it into further divisions, such as RPG Superstar finalists, Open Call Winners, and Werecabbages. Are these divisions worthwhile? Also, Phillip Larwood has not contributed to Pathfinder itself, but did official PF content in KQ. Should he be listed among the others? And what should we do of the authors of OGL material used in PF books? They have pages, but aren't listed as Authors in categories or this template. -- Yoda8myhead 21:42, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Overwhelming & unwieldy[]

This template is getting huge. At some point it stops being helpful. Anyone have any ideas on how to make it less clunky? I'd also like to look into making these footer templates standardized with a single parent template they can all use so we can change them across the board without needing to alter each one individually.—yoda8myhead 04:55, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

With the release of the GameMastery Guide and the dozens of new names credited as authors in it, this template will officially overload. I was thinking of hiding the contents (as I started to do with other navboxes) and divide them up into the current "Paizo Staff" and two new categories, "Fiction Contributors," and "Major Contributors" for people like Greg A. Vaughan, Tim Hitchcock, and Jason Nelson, who have all contributed to a large number of articles and books. The other option is to make a different expandable section for different letter ranges, so that "Freelance Contributors" would have an A-I, J-R, and S-Z section. Anyone have any other ideas before I tackle these changes on the flight to Seattle Thursday afternoon? —yoda8myhead 06:40, June 15, 2010 (UTC)
I think breaking them down into alphabetical groups is a better idea. That way they'll be easier to find. --brandingopportunity 11:47, June 15, 2010 (UTC)
I agree, breaking it down into groups is prolly best, and separating out fiction authors, paizo staff, and freelance authors is a good thing. There will be some with both fiction and freelance credit though, especially with the journals in the AP for Eando Kline and the current series having a different author for each part.
