I've begun the endless task of creating infoboxes. The first primitive example is located at Frodo Baggins. The idea is to have a different infobox for every Race. For example an Earthy/greenish theme for Hobbits, evil characters such as Sauron and Morgoth could have a more black and red theme. The infoboxes wouldn't be limited to characters either, weapons, locations, etc. could all utilize them. The first step, well at least among the first steps, is deciding on all the details we want the infoboxes to contain. As previously noted I've thrown up an example at Frodo Baggins but this is far from complete. If you have any suggestions for colors, details of the infoboxes, etc. feel free to post here. --Hyarion 03:07, 4 April 2006 (EDT)

I think that there should be different colors of infoboxes between, for instance, the Teleri, the Vanyar, and the Noldor. They are different, though all elves, and colors would be easy to pick (blue for the Teleri, gold for the Vanyar, sky blue(?) for the Noldor]]. Also, how do you get to the templates to copy them onto the articles?--Narfil Palùrfalas 17:26, 5 May 2006 (EDT)
Here are some of our current infobox templates. I think we definitely need different colors for the different Elves. I've thrown together a quick Template:Teleri infobox, to insert it into the page you might want to view the code at the top of Frodo Baggins to see how to use an infobox template in an article. Feel free to change the colors on the template as well. Let me know if you need any help.
