After discussion here i re-designed the template so it doesn't stick out so much. I can change the icon size if anyone thinks it needs to be increased. I made it as close to text height size as i could without it turning into a blob. -- Xeon 14:02, 20 June 2007 (CDT)

this template is WAY overused. some standard should be applied, as category:bugs has almost 300 articles. --Honorable Sarah Honorable Icon.gif 09:17, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Whats wrong with having so many bug templates when there are that many bugs? -- Xeon 09:56, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
a lot of them aren't bugs in the sense this template was designed to convey. some of them are simply skill anomolies, or occur so rarely as to be meaningless. --Honorable Sarah Honorable Icon.gif 09:59, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Box around tag[edit source]

I reverted the change to the template, per the discussion both above, as well as the linked discussion at Template talk:ErrorText. To re-add the red box (which is very intrusive IMHO), a new discussion should be started to see if consensus has changed. Personally, I could agree with increasing the size of the icon so it can be recognized ... but the big red box is ugly and unnecessarily intrusive to the articles where it's used. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 02:20, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

If the image were big enough to bump the next note down to the next line, I'm ok with that. I personally like the red box, because I don't find it overly intrusive and encompasses the entire bug, regardless of how big the note is. However if the image could accomplish the same effect then fine. I found ErrorText hideous because the image was glaringly obvious to me. :P --Shadowcrest 02:36, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
I doubt the currently used image could be bumped up much; but this template originally used a different image which was bigger and easier to recognize. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 02:47, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
But that ones so ugly ^^, lol
Well, that would work. But on pages like this one, unless I'm paying close attention I'd have to go back and relook at the tag to find out where it ended. This could be solved by moving the tag to the bottom of the notes (which I keep suspecting is the standard way to do it anyway), but if we were to move the tags to the bottom of the section in most cases the current un-boxed template is fine as it is. --Shadowcrest 02:54, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
I liked it better with the red box that it used to have. But when I put it back I still didn't really like the way it looked. Either, whenever I look at it, it jumps out at me and i cringe with how awkward it looks. What about something like...
  • Bug.gif Bug: Followed by a description of a bug. This way we have the template falling in with other notes but it stands out enough that it is recognized a distinct bug.

(idk why the image looks odd resized. probably needs to be a png or something.) —JediRogue 03:04, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Another option could be to just tone down the box - I don't mind the border as much as the background. Maybe make a red border, but default page color for the background? --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 03:13, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
  • Bug-2.png Bug: Followed by a description of a bug. This way we have the template falling in with other notes but it stands out enough that it is recognized a distinct bug.
    I like that —JediRogue 05:19, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
Not to be negative, but I really liked the cute round bug much better. Felix Omni Signature.png 05:28, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
Looks like an ugly blob imo. —JediRogue 05:48, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
But an actual distinct bug is less pleasant than a blob. Felix Omni Signature.png 05:49, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Template design[edit source]

If the template is not going to span the whole width, then it should have at least a border around it. If it is not going to have a border, then it should span the whole width. Discuss. -User:PanSola (talk to the Follower of Lyssa.png) 00:16, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

I preferred the border. How would it span the whole width without a border (how would it look)? --Shadowcrest 00:17, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Bug.png Bug! This is a very long string of text to show how things would look when spanning the entire width. asodifnasodfpnasd psadnfi sdhfna ason aiodfn ifa;wdi asodfn asdo asopfndka asodin ansd;f asonfd asflj adnfpaos . aosdfnia sd a.asodifnasodfpnasd psadnfi sdhfna ason aiodfn ifa;wdi asodfn asdo asopfndka asodin ansd;f asonfd asflj adnfpaos . aosdfnia sasodifnasodfpnasd psadnfi sdhfna ason aiodfn ifa;wdi asodfn asdo asopfndka asodin ansd;f asonfd asflj adnfpaos . aosdfnia s
Coming in a month late again, but I agree with Pan that we need to remove the width limitation, both here and on Template:Anomaly. It looks extremely odd and jarring for these notes to only span half the page. I'm adding a Template talk check right now to remove User and Talk pages from the bug category, so I'll go ahead and remove the width as well to see how we like that. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:43, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
Third, SOI bad width of template.png
Need i say more? -- Xeon 15:46, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
This is much better - I didn't look at it before I made the change, but just imagine the bug on The Great Northern Wall (mission) in half the width (or less, depending on your resolution). I'll go remove it from Anomaly now. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:51, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for following up with this folks. I forgot about it myself d-: -User:PanSola (talk to the Follower of Lyssa.png) 17:36, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
