Should we hide empty sections? I feel it looks really messy when you got those empty fields in every article.

I was thinking about this myself recently. I like that they're there in the sense that it alerts someone with insight to know what's missing from the page, as well as giving moderators a tool to peruse the article at face-value to check if it's actually a stub, but it is messy and cluttered. Any suggestions how to fix this?

Well how would you feel about an {Incomplete___} banner. Where if you had an incomplete character page, you'd remove {Stub} or [Category: Stubs] and add {{ncompleteCharacter} at the top of the article, which would read something like, "There are missing/empty sections of this article. See [Character Page Sample] to see what's missing."

The pages only really stay incomplete for about a day from the time episode 0 airs to when the campaigns starts/ends and we have the rest of the info. If in a few days if the page is still incomplete we can remove those fields, but for now there's point in removing them since we'll just add them back later today anyways.

I was more thinking about old characters, for example from the Nuren Campaign. They do not seem to get much info and those empty fields just look clunky.

Petertwnsnd (Talkcontribs)

ok. yeah I guess on older campaigns we can get rid of the empty fields since there's no guarantee that the information fill get added any time soon.

Okay, fair enough. So, character pages that are rather "incomplete" due to lack of content we should just leave hidden, so to speak. But what if we actually have do have the content and we just need someone to do the boilerplate of going through the pages and putting in things like abilities? The most notable that comes to mind is Merci's Powers & Abilities section could be more flushed out, but is basically empty. Or the relationship sections for most main party characters could be filled in.
