    Just like we would capitalize each of these words if they were at the beginning of a sentence, they should also be capitalized when they are the first word of an entry in the infobox.

    New Sigils

    House Umber is not one of mine. Those that I and @Lord Evermore have made are in svg format. I'm curious to know which of those sigils are judged to be of lower quality. On the topic of consistency, the sigils on the wiki have never been consistent. They were made by various contributors who used different shapes of shields, some chose to include the words underneath the shield, while other omitted them. My goal is precisely to have high-quality, consistent designs for all sigils, but that takes time. For this reason the svg format is preferable, since they can easily be edited without losing quality, and they do not become pixelated at any size. You'll notice that the overwhelming majority of flags and coats of arms on wikipedia are in this format. Only a handful of sigil currently do not have an svg equivalent (see Talk:List of houses, House Umber is one of them). I'm currently thinking of implementing a way for all sigils to be updated simultaneously by the use of templates and modules. This will also take time. Could you tell me which ones?

    Done. Do let me know if you find other inaccuracies.

    Thanks, I asked to know how I should fix the image.

    Silver balls or silver bells? The current version says bells.

    I agree. This may be a good time for me to say that I have a responsive deisgn for infoboxes. If you copy the content of this page into your custom CSS page, you can have a look at Template:Infobox house/testcases and Template:Infobox house/doc and give me some feedback. I encourage you to look at it both on desktop and mobile. If the community likes this, we can ask @Ran to implement the changes, or there's a way for regular users to do it if Extension:TemplateStyles is installed on the wiki.

    There seems to be an inconsistency in the banner of the Stormcrows. In A Storm of Swords Daenerys IV, their banner is described as "four crows between crossed thunderbolts" while in The Winds of Winter Barristan, it is "a dozen ragged black streamers on a tall staff, topped by a carved wooden crow". Is there a reason for this?

    I did a small test and it worked with your sandbox example, but before I leave the code there I'll make sure it doesn't break anything else.

    I fixed this requirement for twoiaf. No space needed any longer

    I made a version that can be copied directly at User:Abjiklam/update.css. After the css is updated, Module:Infobox and Module:Hatnote will need to be slightly adjusted as well. In the css file, there is styling updates for the following: Infoboxes on desktop and mobile Thumbnail images on mobile Template documentations Unbulleted lists (a.k.a. "plainlists") to be used inside infoboxes Eventually, it would be nice if we could make navboxes collapsible like they used to be, and maybe even make them work on mobile. That would require editing the javascript which I think is not possible at the moment. The site's navbar would also need some minor adjustments as it doesn't look good for some screen resolutions.

    I think I have a working css on my own common.css. You can copy the section about "infoboxes" and "images on mobile" to your own css, and check Template:Infobox/test and the Sandbox.

    My pleasure Yeah the images in infoboxes are still not responsive, and neither are the images within the body of articles. As far as I can tell, templates can't fix this and the only way would be to edit the wiki's CSS. Definitely doable though.

    I changed the way featured content gets chosen on the Main Page and I'd like to give my rationale in case anyone wonders or objects: The previous way this was done was by calculating the number of days left in the year. This was done in a complicated way using lots of template calls, and it results in each date featuring the same article year after year. Moreover, if we ever get more than 366 featured quotes, articles or did you know's, some of them will always be ignored. The way I've changed it works by calculating the number of days since January 1, 1970 a.k.a. the starting date for UNIX time. This simplifies the calculation with a single template call and it makes sure we never run out of spots!

    Looks good now! The phone is a OnePlus One. I've added the styling that make the infobox images responsive.

    Wiki Update

    The problem is still not fixed on my phone, and the title really does take too much space to fit on the same line. See: https://imgur.com/a/ClTyTPW
