Excessive Quotes

Post by Master »

In some of our larger articles, what should be the section providing a brief overview is instead inundated with quotes from many sources across Rayman's 20 year history. The end result is an overview which is buried and bloated. I believe quotes do help provide context, but at the same time, they shouldn't dumped as they seem to be.

Personally, I think we should attempt to spread out quotes and place them within headings which closely tie to the era or subject the quote relates to. Alternatively, we could try to have a sub-page to gather quotes, as we've done for quotes from the games, like the Rayman 3 quotes articles.

Regardless though, I do feel this is another area which could do with some tidying up, what do you folks think?

To demonstrate what I mean, I decided to move the quotes around in the Cage article, compared to when they were all at the top. Do you folks feel that it is better or worse?

Looks like it's approved. I'll see about doing the same for other articles.

The quote pages on the French wiki are great. The English one I'm not too sure about. :?

I guess they're the most needed ones, since that game isn't subtitled at all!
