What do people think of these templates? Is mimicking the YouTube style a good idea? Is there anyone else we need a template for, like Paulmark18?--Brucker 13:03, 15 December 2006 (CST)

I think what you've been doing with the new templates is really good. It gives each blogger's series its own feel. Reflecting their YouTube page makes sense... except for the OpAphid one; it hurts mine eyes =( Maybe use a more subdued green? OwenIsCool 13:11, 15 December 2006 (CST)
Yeah, I agree with Owen. I really like these templates. Basing the color schemes off the YT accounts make a lot of sense. I also think it makes our wiki look distinctive. Have to say I agree about the Op template. That shade of lime is a little jarring. Maybe "palegreen" (98FB98) would be a better color?--JayHenry 13:17, 15 December 2006 (CST)
Yikes! I don't know how I ended up with that color, it's not very close to the original color of the OpAphid profile. I rechecked the colors and I think it looks better now. --Brucker 13:48, 15 December 2006 (CST)
hehe, yeap looks better now, and more like their YT. Nice job with all these! OwenIsCool 14:41, 15 December 2006 (CST)

Forum field

What do people think of having a forum topic field on these video templates, when available? Most major videos have a forum discussion and it might help bridge the gap between LGPedia and the forum. Thoughts?--Jonpro 11:24, 1 May 2007 (CDT)

I actually thought that I added that at some point. I guess I didn't though. I added it to {{Vid}} but then I never started using it because the forum threads were so inane back at the time. They'd go instantly off-topic and usually collapse into flamewars. Then I stopped reading the forum. And then I forgot. But anyways, yeah I think it'd be cool to have on the template... now if we could just get the forum to link back to the LGPedia more often! --JayHenry 11:53, 1 May 2007 (CDT)
