[edit] Succession box

Why not just use the {{start box}}, {{Succession box}}, {{end box}} combo like we have done in the past? Also, while I'm sure there are reasons for having it at the top of an article, we usually keep navigational aids at the botton. -- Tom 17:26, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

My thinking was that the strong bad emails, being highly sequential in nature, are something of an exception to the norm. It's handy to be able to flash through them one after the other (if, say, I'm looking for a particular cast appearance or place, or I just want to skim many synopses) ... but if I have to scroll to the bottom of each page it sort of defeats the purpose. The whole idea here is to put the "next" link in an X,Y position that (generally) does not move from page to page. — Bill 17:35, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
Maybe so, but on such a large project as this that affects so many pages, it's really a good idea to bring it up on Talk:Strong Bad Email, just to get a feel for how everybody thinks. Even the cool email format started its life as a discussion there. — It's dot com 17:39, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
Figures ... the one time I actually decided to be bold. — Bill 17:47, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
And in general you should be bold. Everybody should. The rationale is that even if someone makes a drastic change, it can always be reverted. On projects of such a grand scale, however, we actually encourage the opposite of being bold: achieving consensus. That way we can talk about not only whether a project should proceed but also any minor changes that should be made, before a lot of effort has been expended. — It's dot com 18:02, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
Well, I think it's nice. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:55, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
I also see the value of Bill's idea, and I think it's okay. Sometimes you're looking for a specific email, you're sure about the time period, but not exactly sure which one, it'd be nice to be able to breeze through them really fast, reading the synopsises, looking for the right one.
