I'm probably just really slow, but... is there a way to apply templates to a page that has already been created? I've been seeing a bunch of quest pages that are just a short blurb, without the infobox or the different sections. It's kind of a pain to have to C&P the wiki-markup from one quest page to the other and replace the info.(applies to characters and locations as well, of course.) ... Also, I can't seem to find the current infobox templates in the "templates" section, just the old ones. HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. - Ancestralmask 17:05, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

I am also curious about some of this. I think the new infobox examples posted earlier look great - and in the interest of not leaving miscellaneous formatting errors everywhere, it'd be great if we could just "retemplate" an existing page without doing it manually. If this feature already exists, then please pardon my (admitted) ignorance.
(edit)Also, while I was editing the other day, I noticed that "touching" an infobox (vaguely similar to the unix 'touch' command) updated it with default images and things ... if/when the new infobox's are rolled out, is it an automated update thing (bot, or what not), or how does that work?

This isn't an official response - but to answer your question, as far as I know, the templates are being worked on at the moment. I know AshleyJames and Snfonseka are working on quite a large number of templates at the moment over at Forum:New infoboxes. So in a few days you should have the answer you seek --Tierrie 19:24, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

I'd like to strongly suggest that the stylesheet for the entire wiki be changed -- white text on a black background is not only ugly, lame, and unimaginative, but also bad for the eyes. I can't stand reading anything on this site for more than three seconds, and I promise you it is NOT just me. Aelfwyn 13:20, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

That is your personal preference. If you dislike the look, you can get the Stylish addon for Firefox and reskin it for your own personal viewing. Or just c&p the text to wordpad. (I, personally, like the color scheme.) - Ancestralmask 22:14, November 26, 2009 (UTC)
