Translation sidebar positioning[edit]

Regarding some recent edits like [1] [2]: I think the original intention here was to have the translations lower down on the page because they're less important to the content of the article than the typical sidebar content - more along the lines of the creature raws and infoboxes at the bottom of each page. —Lethosor (talk) 04:28, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

How am I supposed to respond to this? I have the option to edit what you've said like this is a wiki page but no reply. Bizarre.

Yeah so, translation isn't important info, it's trivia. But it has a little graphical box that floats to the right effectively making a small sidebar, and having a little mini sidebar at the bottom of the screen is ugly and not helpful in my opinion. Especially have two sidebars is bad UI. Having it at the bottom with the raws also pushes the raws down weirdly and makes it look like part of the Bugs section. It's less in the way higher in the wiki where it's not displacing anything and can sit as a right sidebar

at the top

at the bottom

Yeah, this is a "talk page", and you responded the right way - https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Talk_pages for more info. In my opinion, it's displacing more things (e.g. the article version and bugs banner) in the "top" version. The "bottom" version might look slightly better if the translation sidebar was moved below the "Raws" box, though. The raws box is designed to appear below sidebars that come before it, which is what's causing it to display in the way you mentioned, although you could also prevent that behavior by replacing {{gamedata}} with {{gamedata}} (I think). —Lethosor (talk) 22:53, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
