Don't know if you've seen the forum post yet, but tabbed images are now supported in portable infoboxes, and work properly on the mobile skin. You can check the recent edits to see for yourself, but here is a quick look at how it works. Which leads me to three things:
1. I know we don't use tabber very much on the wiki outside of infoboxes (and now they're gone too), but I did notice that you implemented the feature on Snowdrop. I know there is not a lot of consistency with how the music articles are presented, but if you want to eventually use tabber on all of them, would you like me to edit the design at all? Now that it does not need to look nice with an infobox, I'd be more than happy to change the look if you preferred something different.
2. Now that all of the infoboxes are using:
I'm going to go through the articles and remove the deprecated information. I've already tidied up the CSS pages, and once I'm done, we should have an easier time of tweaking and updating infoboxes in the future, which is always nice. And finally...
3. While I was doing all this, I noticed you tried to re-add the "Caption" option to the Episode Infobox a while back. I originally removed it because there was no way I could think to keep it while using: <data source="image"> but now that we're using <image source="image"> I think I can probably bring it back. Would you like me to?
Anyway, long message is long, hope you have been doing well, and please get back to me when you have the time. Regards.
Well, I've been doing my best in catching up with Owarimonogatari, so I never really left anyway. As for the updates in Portable Infoboxes, I think I can leave it to you since you've tweaked it the first time.
First off, I apologize if I'm coming off as too timid, but you are the senior administrator, and I don't think I should make major changes without talking to you first. Now that we've got a lot of episode articles, I was thinking it was about time I made some relevant navigation templates. That led me to taking a look at our current navboxes, and felt some tweaking to take advantage of the transparent background was in order. You can check the page histories yourself, but I'm not pleased with the Novels and MusicNav templates. I'm tempted towards changing them to match the CharactersNav template, but at the same time I'm worried that arranging the information vertically would not work as well. Anyway, I just wanted to check in with you and get your input before I did anything drastic. Please get back to me when you have the time.
I expect you've seen the blog post concerning portable infoboxes, and I just wanted to touch base with you and ask how you would like to proceed. Do you think we should start converting our infoboxes, or should we leave them alone for the time being?
Portable infoboxes are still "young", and there seems to be some bugs they have yet to squash. We should stick to the old infoboxes for the meantime. In any case, converting our infoboxes to Portables should be easy since there's a script Wikia had prepared for such a scenario.
Probably for the best. At some point I might convert one of the default templates that we don't use just to see how it turns out. For now we can keep an eye on the portable infoboxes and see what develops.
Okay, I gave it a try with Template:Infobox quest, and got this draft. The conversion tool isn't perfect; if you take a look at the draft's history, the first version is the raw conversion, and the second is after I edited it to look more like the original template. Still, it does not look terrible, though I expect we'll need to make some CSS changes to have it better match the wiki's theme. That will be a bit further down the road though.
I'm fine either way to be honest. We can start converting or we can wait a bit. I'll leave it to your discretion. Where are you hearing about an image bug though? I haven't seen/heard anything like that myself.
Seeing as Wikia has spent the month of September improving portable infoboxes, I decided to take a stab at one of our main ones and see what I could produce. Since you've been working on episode articles yourself recently, I decided to go with the Template:Episode Infobox. Here is the draft. It actually turned out rather well if I do say so myself, though please let me know what you think.
Glad to hear you like it. To be honest, I think formatting the new infoboxes is actually easier than the old ones once you get the hang of it. Drafts aren't perfect, but they do knock out most of the grunt work. There were a few niggly bits that took a bit of sorting (the title, as that long line of code probably gives away), but really, the worst difficulty is determining what you have to do with the template and what has to be done through CSS. I'll try and whip up drafts for the rest of them over the week, and you can take a look when you have the time.
As for episode information, I'd be happy to fill out the infobox fields. I'm sure the information is out on the internet somewhere, and hopefully in English. It'll just be a matter of tracking it all down.
The Anime News Network articles on the anime series have the info for the staff. The official website of the Monogatari Series has the endcards for Second Season and the names of the artists in Japanese. The rest of the endcards needs a bit more intense search.
