I think we should add a line for a link to the official soinc page. Thoughts? Luo 02:33, 5 January 2012 (EST)

It sounds like a good idea to me. I'd put it at the top of the box, above where it says Forum Thread, but I should probably get input from another mod before implementing it. Eaststroudsburg13 11:05, 6 January 2012 (EST)

One thing that would need to be taken into consideration is that some events have Div C and Div B versions that have different webpages on soinc. The template would have to be programmed to allow for this possibility. Luo 16:09, 6 January 2012 (EST)

Might this be changed so that the building events which don't have tests not have a section for tests? Twototwenty 12:13, 9 September 2012 (EST)

Twototwenty:I'm not very familiar with parser functions, but maybe you could change the parameters of the template so that the second option would be blank instead of "There are no images available for this event," etc...? /fishman100

That was the original plan, but both parser functions and tables use the pipe symbol, so I couldn't get it to do what I wanted. This would be why there are test and image options for events that don't have them. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the outcome, though. The link sounds good, and it would be completely possible to add different links for B and C division. Zyzzyva98 11:26, 9 September 2012 (EST)

What you can do for that problem is use the ! Template, which is really just the pipe symbol, for any pipe symbol necessary for the table within the parser functions, and just use the pipe symbol for the parser functions...I had to do this for my team page template, and it worked out.

Ok, I'll take a look at that sometime this week. Zyzzyva98 12:58, 9 September 2012 (EST)

I reverted your edits, twototwenty, because one of the lines of code you added was causing problems with some of the tables and I didn't have time to go through and find the problem Zyzzyva98 (talk) 07:35, 23 September 2012 (CDT)

There's a small problem with a few empty columns being smaller (see Dynamic Planet/Oceanography). Can someone try to fix this? I'm not veyr experienced with table formatting. --Unome (talk) 20:13, 29 August 2016 (CDT)

2020 Tests

What should be done about the 2020 Test Exchange link in this template, now that the old test exchange system is retired? Currently, I set the template to add a link to the new test exchange instead of another wiki page, but I don't believe this is the best solution. Pepperonipi (talk) 04:30, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
