I was just thinking of how comparatively barren our country-related articles are when pitted against the likes of some of our vehicle and weapon pages. My opinion is that we should create a specific type of layout for each country/faction, as well as a brief IRL history of said country/faction.
Problem is, I was trying to do this for the France page, and the resulting intro took up about 3/4ths of the page -- in a very condensed format that I barely felt comfortable labeling as a true history. So I scrapped it and put it off for a later date.
So my thought is:
Subservient factions with information
Equipment and vehicles used by each faction
Maps the nation appears on, with brief descriptions of their starting conditions and special traits (ie, if a faction-unique item or event occurs)
The current US page seems to be mostly like what this is proposing, just with a lack of images. Should we try to emulate that for the other countries?
The maps could also use a description like you said, as well as the preview images of them off to the side, or in a gallery afterwards. And the equipment may be able to be listed in a navbox-like template after the Armed Forces, or perhaps as a list with images of some notable ones off to the side. I could take any we need for BC2 or BF3 as well, or search for screen-shots without watermarks. PresidentEden78 20:09, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
Well it's better than the France page, if only marginally, but I think it could have some better organization, and the intro is lacking a lot. Юра 21:27, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps an example (i.e sandbox preview) of what you mean would help. I'd drum up something, but I'm busy with stuff ATM. PresidentEden78 00:05, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
I'll make an example soon, but I'm going to do the article from the ground-up, not alter the old article. It's too difficult to do it any other way. Юра 00:14, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
