Size of other templates, now that project boxes have changed... [closed]

+5 votes

Now that the format for display of project boxes seems to be settled, how about standardizing the size of other templates? Not to pick on anyone, but some templates generate HUGE items, especially compared to the new project boxes. Or maybe the templates I'm thinking of have been superseded by different templates, & should be retired?

I'm thinking specifically of the Roll of Honor templates. I've used {{Died in Military Service}}, but now I can't find where it was mentioned in the project pages. All I see now is different project boxes (for this particular profile, I think I need to use {{Project Box ... project = Roll of Honor}} ?)

If {{Died in Military Service}} is incorrect usage, would it be possible in future to add this type of problem to the DB Errors Project?


... I just found the template -- it's on the page ...

The correct Project box to use is the Roll of Honor Project Box. Died in Military Service is not a separate project. The Roll of Honor Project is in the process of establishing Display Templates - which would be the one you would use to signify "Died in Military Service" along with the other designations.

The Project Templates were very recently updated to comply with the new standard.

Thanks, Terri. It's sometimes difficult to figure out what to use for a profile when you're not part of a project, but you know something is needed to recognize the person for whatever reason.
