Uncollapsing

I really like the idea of uncollapsing this template so it's no longer hidden on the Main Page. Anyone against this?--Galilean (talk) 17:25, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Sounds like a good idea. Hurtful Truth Level (talk) 19:32, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
  • If you still want to do the uncollapse, maybe it'd be a good idea to trim the template. Instead of having a list of shortened versions of templates, maybe there could just be a list of links to the full templates.Hurtful Truth Level (talk) 10:17, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
  • I've left the "Check this out" open the last few days to see how it would look. Unfortunately, it does make the homepage a little clunky; I can understand why it was collapsed in the first place. My reasoning is that it's a shame to leave so many of the templates hidden away—the edit history of some of those pages suggests they aren't visited very often. My alternative solution is to include the Succession template at the end of every video—which needed to be done anyway. The Succession template has a direct link to List of videos which archives all the video templates at the bottom of the page.--Galilean (talk) 14:36, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Here's what I suggest for the Check template. The advantages are that the template could be uncollapsed without making the page clunky and more templates could be included. Stuff like Greatest Moments is out-of-date anyway, and could be made into its own template. A con is that the templates would be behind a link, but as it is, they're behind a spoiler anyway.
