Where's my lists navigation nav?--Relyk ~ talk < 00:48, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Erm, I'm probably missing some obvious sarcasm, but... what? ^_^ User Noxx Sig.png 18:30, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Did you want to add Initiative to the thief for your profession mechanics nav? I also like the reduced size of v4.1. G R E E N E R 20:15, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

That's a good idea, now that the mechanics have more space when split from the skill types! User Noxx Sig.png 20:49, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Mock ups[edit]

Any way I could convince you to create mock-up pages with your suggestions? Perhaps:

Obviously I stated my preferences for which could go on those pages. I can mock these up as well, if you're not too keen on it. I'd like to cut through all the chatter we've had, and show something overt for people to see. Also, it's very late for me, and I could have missed some pages which may deserve more than one nav, but at a cursory glance, I think only the specializations may end up with a combo.

Done. ^_^ Professions, specs, skill lists and trait lists have the other alternatives in their histories. User Noxx Sig.png 13:13, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
I think you've got the multiple-navs-per-page backwards. The spec navs should be on the professions' pages, instead of the other way around. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 13:48, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Well, I can sort of see the reasoning for both directions... but the profession pages already have a list of specs fairly visible in their text, while the professions nav works mostly to hop between professions; a jump from Elementalist to Strength wouldn't probably happen so often anyway. On the other hand the direction me and Greener use now allows jumps like from Dragonhunter to List of guardian skills, which seems to me more useful. User Noxx Sig.png 14:00, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Edit: Although, having made those mock-ups now, I'm wondering if we really need the two navs anywhere. What if we just added See also links to the skill and trait lists in the page instead of the profession nav? User Noxx Sig.png 14:40, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Another edit: I also added a page for racial skills. User Noxx Sig.png 14:55, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I was wanting to have the mock-ups to see what information may be missing or better put elsewhere. Much appreciated for getting way more of those up than I was expecting! G R E E N E R 15:25, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
