Masterwork creature pages

I know this is late, but thanks for creating a bunch of Masterwork creature pages! The only problem I've noticed with them (which you might have noticed too) is that using a single template, {{RawStub/Creature}}, for a page makes it hard to add content — content on these pages generally goes between the infoboxes and the navboxes (i.e. between {{av}} and {{gamedata}}), which isn't easy with a single template. I just figured out that adding subst: to all of the templates (and parser functions) in the template and changing {{RawStub/Creature}} to {{subst:RawStub/Creature}} solves this problem (see Masterwork:Blood gnat). I'm considering changing all of these shortly (I have a bot, so there's no need to do them all by hand), but if you have any questions/concerns please let me know. Thanks for your work! (It's really nice to have one template for all of these pages, and I hadn't thought of doing it this way.) --Lethosor (talk) 20:01, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Hey man thanks. If you end up checking back on this: I see your point, but I'd like to keep the ability to modify the {{RawStub/Creature}} template and have it auto updates everything in the future. Right now I'm musing on the idea of creating a subst template that include a comment on how to use subst on {{RawStub/Creature}}. Etarip (talk) 16:02, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
