Quotes at the beginning of articles

Some articles contain an insane load of quotes at the very top, such as Globox: 8 quotes, and on my monitor I have to scroll down if I want to read past... the introduction paragraph. Rayman and Teensie are good examples as well. Should we consider another solution? Any ideas? —RRRGBAIcon8.pngRRRGBAIcon0.gifRRRGBAIcon1.png 15:14, 26 August 2014 (CEST)

I see what you mean, those quotes do tend to be meaningful, however. Perhaps we could have a dedicated quotes section in the article? --Sig5 2TEST.png 02:10, 27 August 2014 (CEST)
Yes, though a "Quotes" section might be more fitting for quotes from the character, don't you think? —RRRGBAIcon8.pngRRRGBAIcon0.gifRRRGBAIcon1.png 15:11, 27 August 2014 (CEST)
Why not? I found other wikis which use quotes sections, and it looks very nice.-- Boomboleros7 22:56, 27 August 2014 (CEST)
I didn't say no, I said the title of the section might be slightly misleading. But it's probably better than the current situation anyway. Can you link us to an example on another wiki so that we can see how they deal with it? —RRRGBAIcon8.pngRRRGBAIcon0.gifRRRGBAIcon1.png 23:22, 27 August 2014 (CEST)
Sorry, I didn't disagree with you. I said I like the idea to create a "Quotes" section.
Anyway, you can see exemples on those wikis/wikia : Bionicle, Mario and Sonic.-- Boomboleros7 23:48, 27 August 2014 (CEST)
I have nothing about the idea of a "Quotes" section, but in the three links you posted those contain exclusively quotes from the character, as opposed to the quotes about the character that we have at the top of our articles. That's exactly what I would expect of a "Quotes" section, and that's why I think moving the "about" quotes there could be misleading. —RRRGBAIcon8.pngRRRGBAIcon0.gifRRRGBAIcon1.png 00:01, 28 August 2014 (CEST)
Hmm, that's a fair point. I think moving them to some dedicated section would be better, but the problem then comes in the naming, I see what you mean, having it labelled as a Quotes section does imply it's from the character, and not about them. Other than that, could we perhaps move the quotes so that they're part of a relevant section? Most of them tend to stem from various game manuals for respective games, could we move the quotes from say, Rayman 2 quotes on Globox to the Rayman 2 section of his article, and so forth? --Sig5 2TEST.png 01:07, 28 August 2014 (CEST)
