Robot Wars Wiki

A couple of suggestions[]

The new template looks pretty good, but I'd like to make a couple of suggestions to improve it. First, I think that using the | sign to separate robots looks a bit messy when there are so many, so I'd like to suggest that we use the • sign instead. I think it would look much neater that way, and probably on other templates too..

Secondly, I think that the robots should be listed in alphabetical order. This way there are no disputes about which robots should come before other robots, and it'll make it easier for people to look up a particular robot on the template. What do you think of these suggestions? Christophee 00:44, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

By all means. I think the order was by order of when they made the semi-finals. Toon Ganondorf (t c)

I'm thinking that we should sort the semi-finalists into a further half as Semi R2 and Semi R1, and Grand Finalists as Grand FInalists and Runner-Up, still based on their best performance performance. But then I think G.B.H., Plunderbird and Napalm would become Semi Rd 1 and Haardvark, Behemoth, King Buxton and Mortis are Semi Rd 2. Does this work for everyone?

Oh, and Cunning Plan, TRACIE, etc. would just be Grand Finalists rather than runners-up. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 00:22, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
I personally don't see any problem with the way it currently is, but if you want to change it then go ahead. I think that grouping Mace, Plunderbird, Napalm & G.B.H. together in R1 is a good idea as we don't want too many sections. Christophee (talk) 00:36, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes, but Mace would be in Rd 2, because that was their best performance. Personally, I think Mace's name should be on the template. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 00:39, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
You're right, I didn't think about other series when I typed that. I have thought about putting Mace's name on the template before now but never raised the issue. It's probably a good idea. Christophee (talk) 00:42, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

I did the same thing with King Buxton. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 00:45, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
