Faux-Country Infobox Template 1.0

Post by The Cunning Linguist on Wed Apr 24, 2013 1:50 am

If anyone wants to make an authentic-looking article on their empire that looks like an actual Wikipedia website, you may want to add an infobox. Since our wiki at this time doesn't have the template (probably will change), I've made this Faux-Infobox table that kinda looks like an actual Country infobox (the thing on the right with the flags and country names). Note that this looks weird on our wiki, and it is off when it comes to spacing and font size, but keep in mind this is only v1.0, and I'm not sure what makes causes those visible boxes in our wiki. Here is the code, just change the placeholders in the parentheses:

Code:
{| class="wikitable" align = "right"
|-
! <big>(Empire Name)</big>
''(Empire Name (Alien Language))''

|-
|
{| align = "center"
| align="center" width="120px" | [[Image:(Empire Flag)|100px]]
|
| align="center" width="120px" | [[Image:(Empire Coat of Arms; Optional)|100px]]
|-
| align="center" colspan="2" | <small>Flag</small>
| align="center" colspan="2" | <small>Coat of Arms</small>
|}
|-
| align="center" | <small>'''Motto:''' "(Motto (Alien Language))"</small>
<small>(Motto (English))</small>
|-
| align="center" | '''Anthem:''' ''(Anthem Name (Alien Language))''
<small>(Anthem Name (English))</small>
|-
|
{| align = "left"
|  '''Homeworld''' ||
:[[(Homeworld Name)]]
|-
| '''Capital''' ||
:(Homeworld Capital City)
|}
|-
|
{| align = "left"
|  '''Official Languages''' ||
:[[(Language Name)]]
|}
|-
|
{| align = "left"
|  '''Races''' ||
:(%Percent Race Name)
|}
|-
|
{| align = "left"
|  '''Ethnic Groups''' ||
:(%Percent Culture Name for official race)
|}
|-
|
{| align = "left"
|  '''Demonym''' ||
:(Adjective form of your people; e.g. "Pakistani"; "Chinese"; "French")
|}
|-
|
{| align = "left"
|  '''Government''' ||
:(Government Type)
|-
|  - (Head of State) ||
:(HoS Name)
|-
|  - (Head of Government) ||
:(HoG Name)
|}
|-
|
{| align = "left"
|  '''Formation/Independence''' ||
|-

|  - (Name of previous version of nation; e.g. Russia used to be called USSR; Mexico's independence from Spain)||
:(When it happened)
|}
|-
|
{| align = "left"
|  '''Area''' ||
|-
|  - Stellar Systems ||
:(number of) Systems
|}
|-
|
{| align = "left"
|  '''Population''' ||
|-
|  - (Total number in entire empire) ||
:(Population Number)
|-
|  - (Total number in homeworld) ||
:(Population Number)
|}
|-
|
{| align = "left"
|  '''Currency''' ||
:(Currency Name) (<small>(Currency Symbol)</small>)
|}
|-
|
{| align = "left"
|  '''Dating System''' ||
:(How your empire measures days and years)
|}
|}

Other credits:
HangingDeath (the person who made the help page): I directly used some of his/(her?) code to make mine look right, so big credits to the guy.

Anyone who can fix the spacing and visible box problems (the font size is mostly due to laziness, and only needs to be changed if you're completely and unnaturally obsessed with making it look like an authentic article)

Hang isn't a member of RG anymore, XD. But I did list their name on the help page since I'm a nice guy like that, lol.

The Infobox is a bit big, but I'll live with it until I learn how to shrink it. Thanks!

It's big because there's a line that's too long. Either omit it, or put it in a new line. I'm referring to the captions after your sections on "ethnic groups": I'd suggest you put the descriptions of such in more detail in their own sections in the main article; the infobox is only meant to summarize everything and give the raw data.


p.s. oh, and if you want a flag (and optional coat of arms), just pm me the details and I can make one for you Very Happy

That would be great! Me, Darkel and Prussian are all down in the chatbox at the bottom of the main page if you want to come and chat, raptor.
