Do we want to edit the "previous offerings" section so it just shows previous/current/next item? Would reduce clutter. Perhaps something like the chart at the bottom of here. Cristiona

That sounds like a great idea! Maybe make a separate template for it. But how to sort it... Alphabetically? By date of creation? Pantomine

I'm not sure what you are suggesting here Cris. I think this page should show all past and preesnt offerings by the wok. They can be arranged in a table by month/year if we want to reduce clutter. Are you referring to the pages of the specific items? We can do something like the IOTM template for KoL see for example the bottom of this page.--Muhandes 15:39, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, that box on the bottom is exactly what I was thinking. Having everything on one page just seems... cluttered and ugly. I dunno. Just musing randomly. Cristiona

Though, that is connecting between the actual items itself. Although, that is still really simple to do. Yamum

I think a plain list like we have currently should be kept somewhere. Maybe not on the main Wok page, but somewhere that somebody can easily see all the iotms and when they were from. The vertical space taken up could probably be reduced with a table like http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php/IOTM#Previous_Offerings --Olaf 19:03, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

How about this one:

Crowding

This page is starting to get a little crowded and long. Should we consider making links to historical-type pages? At least for the purchasing messages. Or, perhaps, the purchase message could go on the item page:

|obtain=The Wok of Stars

  • Available for 10 silver stars during March of 2010.
  • The shopkeeper takes the 10 silver stars and hands you a jersey commemmorating the Viking Games.

Also, I like the chart, but I think it's going to get unwieldy eventually. Might have to consider shrinking the images at some point...

I have no problem with either moving all messages to a separate page or moving it to the items, probably as part of the notes section though. I just don't feel the urge to do it as the page looks fine on my screen. If someone else wants to do it, go ahead. --Muhandes 09:46, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
I'm willing to switch all the messages to the items page. If no one objects I'll start tomorrow afternoon. Also the table is extremely large especially when compared to KOLs where they have 5 or 6 years of stuff in half the space our 3 years take up. I looked at making the images smaller but they dont look too good Cape.gif. Any suggestions on ways to make the table smaller? --Zillow--
I saw some whitespace was removed, and the page now looks good even on my tiny laptop. We can worry about the table's width next year. --Muhandes 07:34, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

The tables starting to get a really wide now. Should it be changed to something like

The first one (with names) looks better. Another option would be to strip out the images. Cristiona (talk) 19:52, 25 December 2012 (PST)
I added an image-free copy of the (transposed) table above. Personally, I prefer the second (images only). Oh, and in case anyone didn't notice, the second table links the images to the item page, and the item name shows up as a tooltip. --hoyifung04 (talk) 20:49, 25 December 2012 (PST)

It might be time to revisit this issue. Any suggestion? --hoyifung04 (talk) 17:56, 1 January 2015 (PST)

At this point, we'd almost have to shrink the images. Or remove the names. Cristiona (talk) 20:41, 1 January 2015 (PST)
What if we place images with links to the item like this? Rodericks-gloves.gif I'm not sure if I can get more info into the captions without getting it to look all wonky though. --Valmo (talk) 06:15, 2 January 2015 (PST)
