PortableInfoboxes; to convert or not to convert.

Wikia implemented a new standard for infoboxes recently, leaving the templates outdated.

Whether or not to convert the Infobox VG template is up for debate here but doing so might seem to be a lengthy process considering the fact that it switches from MediaWiki to XML.

What happens if I press 'convert'?

It takes you to an edit dialog with the page renamed to the template renamed as "Infobox VG/Draft", and the infobox converted to the new XML style.

When I rolled out Infobox VG, literally nobody except me liked the bottom thing that said "information by __."

If anyone likes infoboxes, it just goes to show you it's me.

Yeah I still don't see the point of it

Also, I do remember Bill at least liking the rest of the infobox

Almost every other project on Wikia is migrating to it.

Also, I do remember Bill at least liking the rest of the infobox.

Still not all of it.

Really?

The point was, liking the whole idea of just changing infoboxes when a new one comes up
