Do we have any intentions of adding Logbook images to these tables as we are with the Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Logbook? It would certainly lend a feeling of completeness. Embyr 75  --Talk-- 22:14, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

I was thinking that not too long ago. All for it. In fact, it would be an easy way to assure we have all logbook images here. --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 22:26, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
Definitely something worth implementing, should we do the images on both the left and right sides or just have the on one side to keep the entire thing consistent? MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 22:28, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
Also, it makes adding the images that much easier if we haven't gotten around to adding them to the main articles. I'd like to eventually have both images, as they are equally detailed and important. I'd say that we could make a separate column for each, and go like we have from there. Bop1996 (Talk | Unfinished projects) 22:33, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
I did mean have both images, what I was asking is have one image on the left side of the table and one on the right or just have them both on the right (or left) to have a uniform style? MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 23:06, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
(I guess I'll reply here, as the tables below apply to the current discussion up here) I prefer option A, as it more closely resembles the Logbook's layout. Bop1996 (Talk | Unfinished projects) 23:24, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
I'll wait for Malake's and Embyr's input, but that sounds just fine. Tables are pretty easy to change, it'll be a little time consuming due to the large amount of entries. MKMetroid mf Sprite.gif 18:29, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
I think both styles have merit, for sure. Either would look nice to me. I like the second for the fact that all the images are in one place, but I have to say I think the first is more pleasing to the eye (and closer to the way it looks in the game itself). If we could create logbook pages that actually look like the ones in the game that would be AWESOME!!!!!! O_O But I'll settle for "Style A" for now. ;D (Is there any way to make the images sit center in their table cell? That might look even better.) Embyr 75  --Talk-- 18:52, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
I'd think that the <center> and </center> tags would work just fine for centering purposes, unless I'm dreadfully wrong... Bop1996 (Talk | Unfinished projects) 19:09, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
Nah, there's a more technical way. I like style B better. And it may even be more logbooky if we had an actual image of the creature in a column of its own. It's odd that those beetle logbook images aren't the same size. Hmm, gotta create a little standard for those then. --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 19:18, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
I stand corrected. ;) Style B's main pro at the moment is that it doesn't look as bad where we only have one logbook image, so it represents perhaps the best short-term solution. However, if we have the images, then style A has very little against it, and the pros of looking as close as possible to the Logbook's format without completely redoing our skin to look like the scan visor (potential April Fool's Joke spotted). I'd still stick with style A, and if we use style B, we would agree to switch it once we got a certain percentage of both sides of logbook images uploaded, as the main obstacle to that would be removed. Bop1996 (Talk | Unfinished projects) 20:00, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

I would still prefer having the logbook image to the side, completely separated, seems better looking to me. Oh and maybe add a section showing all rooms the creature appears in... --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 20:26, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Scratch that last part, that would already be mentioned in the article. --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 20:26, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
So have we decided what format will go with it? I've been looking at this article a while and I prefer the image left/image right format. Would it be OK for me to add this in to every entry? --Wookiee 123 20:37, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
Go for it :) I say always go the adventurous route, if it looks weird we can always undo it, but I'm sure it will look fine --Malake256 {Talk | Contribs} 00:55, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

LOGS ARE WRONG

anyone noticed that the logs for ram and barbed War Wasps are the same. Someone needs to do something about this.--Arcwarioman 18:06, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Good catch! I'll update it with the correct information now. :) Embyr 75  --Talk-- 18:12, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
