On a recent discussion on the deletion of the Minister for Magic individual infobox, we came up with the superfluity of some other infoboxes created "without any sort of consensus" (such as the Quidditch player infobox and the St Mungo's permanent patient infobox). My question is: should we get rid of these infoboxes, too? Also are there any more infoboxes you find to be unnecessary? --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 13:20, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

I think, we should delete the st. mungo's pernament patient infobox, because (i think) at least 15 people can have an induvidual infobox. At MFM-infobox we had 7, i think and at the St. Mungo we have 4, i think. But the quidditch player has ca. 100. --Thorning 13:26, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
The thing with the Quidditch player infobox is that infoboxes should reflect species and affiliations; not professional careers. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 13:37, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
I would be inclined to keep the Quidditch players one, due to the enormity of individuals who can be assigned to it. While infoboxes should be for major affiliations/species, something like this would be useful. Wookieepedia has a standard Bounty hunter infobox template, for instance. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 14:06, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
Hey guys, I just suddenly had a brainchild. What if we had a Dumbledore's Army infobox? I mean, we have an Order of the Phoenix and Death Eater infoboxes, and with a Dumbledore's Army infobox, we have about 25 people with the infobox. Anybody with me? That's not superfluous infobox, is it?--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 22:05, May 1, 2010 (UTC)
It would be, unless we'd be prepared to merge the House infoboxes into a single "Hogwarts student individual infobox". In fact, I think I would support that. Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 10:36, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

To me, the Squib infobox is the most superflocus. We don´´t have pure-blood infoboxes or muggle-born infoboxes. i´´d keep the house boxes and would delete the profession infoboxes, unless we would create something like "Writer infobox" (over 58 articles). --Rodolphus 11:46, May 2, 2010 (UTC

Well, we have a muggle infobox and a wizard infobox, and a Squib isn't exactly a wizard or a muggle, so I think it is necessary.--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 15:37, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
