I was just looking at the Cryomancer abilities table and I thought that the description seemed a bit squished because of the widening information. My thoughts were that we should probably take all the information to the left of the description, and simply add it to the description and try our best to mimic the format that exists in the game.
I noticed the removal of text from that page and appreciate your concern. At the time the videos were all I had to work from and while the information was based on them, it was not a transcript, but rather re-written in an attempt to be as unique as possible. Unless the text is from an official source, this is always best practice. Since the information is now dated, it makes more sense to allow users to rewrite new and current information so I have no intention of reverting anything. I unlocked the Monk last night, so a majority of my attention will be directed to that article in the near future.
As for the tables, I have not looked at them in a while but I do not remember the table being a fixed width. I had spoken with other active Admin about coming up with a universal template for abilities but nothing has been set in stone. All suggestions are appreciated. As a staff member, it is also important to me that whatever solution we as a community come up with, that it be mobile friendly which I seriously doubt the current format is. One of our main goals for all our communities this year is to attempt to convert them to become as portable as possible as more of our views each month are coming from mobile devices. There is a 'Mobile' preview available.
If you have ideas in mind for the table, or are considering not using one at all, please create a sandbox page, or a subpage under your user name to to place your ideas and share them with me. I would love to take a look. This way we can avoid confusion with multiple edits and reverts for the same issue. Thanks!
And hey, none of this would be possible without you. :D
Also, I've been toying with a few templates I found in your lovely Wildstar wiki, but I can't get them to work as awesomely as they work on that wiki. I tried copying the abilities table & the tooltip template but it's not working for me. I'd love to have your help!
