I was browsing around the CoD wiki and noticed how many pages use the soldier infobox on their page. Now, not to sound like im jealous, but i think that if we had a soldier infobox, then we could, in effect, simplify character pages down so that we can standardize the layout and content. Only problem is........when i tried to do that, i failed. Miserably. So, can anyone make one, for the good of the wiki? And if so, please don't copy the CoD wiki template code for code,make it something like the one from the cold war level page - BFBC2 ta39HeatedPeteTalk 16:30, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

Try copying the template and editing the content, I'll try making on soon. Ta00DEathgod65 - Rangers lead the way!Ta00 17:46, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

I'm sure someone can throw one together. In fact, I'll have a go myself. - Bondpedia (Talk) (Contributions) Administrator and BureaucratVeteran 17:48, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

I've made one but i haven't saved it, waiting to see Bond's work first. Ta00DEathgod65 - Rangers lead the way!Ta00 17:57, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

Mine's done, but it's very basic. I based it off Template:Gunbox. Some of the things may need changing, or more adding though. Here's my example (I couldn't be bothered with a real one, so I made it up). - Bondpedia (Talk) (Contributions) Administrator and BureaucratVeteran 18:12, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

Nice,better than what i could have done. Maybe add a Current Status section? Ta00DEathgod65 - Rangers lead the way!Ta00 18:19, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

Like this... ? - Bondpedia (Talk) (Contributions) Administrator and BureaucratVeteran 18:25, June 14, 2010 (UTC)
Also, add a weapon box and get rid of the caption, it isn't really necessary BFBC2 ta39HeatedPeteTalk 19:10, June 14, 2010 (UTC)
Right, now the caption is non-compulsary. So if you don't want it, you can get rid of it. How should the weapon section be worded? - Bondpedia (Talk) (Contributions) Administrator and BureaucratVeteran 19:33, June 14, 2010 (UTC)
well could be for example <!-- What weapon the character uses --> BFBC2 ta39HeatedPeteTalk 19:52, June 14, 2010 (UTC)
