I disagree that people should be pushed into using the biobox. While it may seem orderly to have everyone use the same format, there are instances in which it may not work. I, for example, did not have a place for it on Naiama's page until I reworked the whole the beginning of it. If you see, I had to keep my own category for certain things because the biobox did not include them or did not leave enough room for the description I wanted.

That's all, I guess.

/2c that no one asked for

It really isn't meant as a forced thing. Some pages were created before the Biobox system existed--either created using the Infobox Biography, or no box at all using the previous template. The messages are meant as reminders to those of these users that wish to use the template and either did not have the chance, or did not know how.

No pressure meant!

Naiama, I agree that a number of pages look great without the biobox. The notes were posted, as Lil said, simply to make people aware of the biobox. I'll go amend those now to make it clear that it's not 'required'.

Also, feedback is welcome. I'm one of the moderators for characters and guilds/groups (along with Krelle), and I know I welcome the input.
