There seems to be a bit of an increase lately in adding character information to minifigures or figures which doesn't necessarily have to do with LEGO. I've been thinking of doing something similar to what Mackmoron11 suggested to me recently- have external links on BIONICLE pages which would give more in-depth character information on a relevant wiki. I was thinking about this for maybe Star Wars and Harry Potter minfigures too (and other licensed themes). So I was wondering what others thought about this, and whether we should do this and make some sort of template for external wiki links, eg putting something like {{wookieepedia}} on say C-3PO's page which would come up with

Or a template for any wiki like {{starwars|Wookieepedia}} where the first part would be the domain name, and the second part the name of the wiki. I've made a template like this before on other wikis, so I know they're fairly simple to make, but it's just an idea :) NightblazeSaber 08:05, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

General Discussion

  • I've created {{storyref}} (see the usage section on how it works, and feel free to suggest a better name for this), and have an example of it on C-3PO. I was wondering now which wikis we should link to according to the article (suggestions with voting below) NightblazeSaber 09:41, September 4, 2009 (UTC)

  • I haven't had any experiences with the Indiana Jones Wiki, so I don't know how active it is and whether we should be linking to it NightblazeSaber 09:41, September 4, 2009 (UTC)
  • Now, is this the LEGO Indiana Jones wiki? Because I know that one is inactive. -Nerfblasterpro: I use a Vulcan, and a Raider!Maverick 11:10, October 17, 2009 (UTC)
    • No, it's for the actual Indy - not LEGO)

  • Note: there is a batman.wikia.com (and spiderman.wikia.com). However, the two wikis nominated seem to be a lot bigger and have more detailed articles. Just my opinion though, feel free to set up an opposing nom. NightblazeSaber 02:18, June 21, 2011 (UTC)
