Forms are absolutely useless for anything except A) brand new pages (right after an expansion is released perhaps), and B) getting folk to add drop information from holiday bags (and even then the form dies after it reaches 22kb). I stopped making forms for infoboxes when I realised that you can't easily use an edit form on an existing page (see above section with partial forms), and even then it buggers up the spacing between parameters in the infobox. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 10:14, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
Then we use them for creating new pages or adding row to the drop tables.--Relyk ~ talk < 20:23, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
I did not delete the table, I moved it to this discussion page. I have been told that wiki pages document what IS and what has been officially announced. Whereas discussion pages document what we believe should be, but may never actually happen (like 10 missing forms). When was the last time someone, besides me, created a new form? ~ 1Maven (talk) 20:42, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
This isn't a wiki article, it's a project page for Semantic Forms. That's why it's in the GW2W namespace. The last time someone created a form was me testing the drop rate templates. Apologies that there are 10 missing forms since the templates aren't finished and we don't have all the semantic properties and we only have a couple people working on forms in the first place.--Relyk ~ talk < 21:22, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
By the way, which case was causing the empty parameters to be added? I'm able to edit pages on Object infobox without adding blank fields and remove parameters if the field is empty.--Relyk ~ talk < 22:44, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
I think it was unnamed parameters, but I can't remember with any great deal of precision. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:52, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
