I have rescently noticed that all Wand articles are using the object infobox. Wouldn´t a wand infobox be useful? My fiest idea is:

|name: e. g. Elder Wand

|File: maxium 250 pix

|manufacturer: Olivander or Gregorowitch

|made: Year in which the wand was made

|master(s):

|wood:

|core:

|length

|characteristics

Behind the Scenes

|First appearance

|Latest appearance

|Last appearance

i´m not sure about the colors: I would tend to dark brown and white, like wand wood.

What do you think? --Rodolphus 14:16, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

I would be in favour of it. We have enough articles about wands to merit their own infoboxes, I think. Oread (talk) 17:01, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
The behind the scenes section would not be included, but apart from that it's a good idea. The current object battle and organization infoboxes need to be re-done to match the individual ones. Jayce Carver Slytherincrest Talk 18:52, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
The event infoboxes need to have the behind the scenes sections removed as well. Oread (talk) 19:08, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
The location, potions and objects infoboxes still have the behind the scenes too. -- Seth Cooper Moon (Owl Post) 21:58, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
I think that this is a great idea. The wizard individual infobox currently uses a chocolate/ash brown colour combination, so if we are going to go with wood tones for the wand infobox, I'd suggest something along the lines of mahogony or birch. Starstuff (Owl me!) 01:50, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Also while were on the subject of infoboxes, does anyone else think there should be a conflit infobox for the wars themselves rather than using battle infoboxes? Jayce Carver Slytherincrest Talk 10:36, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
I would like the birch colour. If someone agrees and creates the template, I would replace the object box on the wand pages with it.--Rodolphus 12:46, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
I created it under Template:Wand infobox. I don't like the color scheme, though - feel free to change them! -- Seth Cooper Moon (Owl Post) 14:24, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

All infoboxes have been replaced, as far as I can see, but the "characteristics part isn´t shown in the articles. Is that a mistake?--Rodolphus 15:10, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

The "characteristics" section is for those adjectives Ollivander uses to give to wands, like "springy", "swishy", or "Good for Charmwork. -- Seth Cooper Moon (Owl Post) 15:41, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

You have made a mistake here...neither Olivander nor Gregorvitch made the Elder Wand. It should be Maker: Death or Peverall Brother(s) -Aidan

You´re right. It was just an example.--Rodolphus 08:07, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
