There's a whole lot of "categories" and links here, and some more will probably appear. I'm not sure this is the correct way of displaying them - there's already too much clutter, as a total of 27 links are currently presented in the sidebar. They're not even alphabetically sorted, so usability is at its minimum. I suggest drastically decreasing the number of links, and creating valid lists on the Main Page. --Catalyst2950 16:24, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

I fully agree, it's good that the sidebar is locked but at the moment it's no good. Let's present / collect some alternatives here. -- GM-Lau 16:28, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

I'm going to play in the Sandbox for a while. I think a nice alternative would be to have several floated DIV's in various colours, that group certain link categories. --Catalyst2950 16:42, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Here we go: Meta:Sandbox. I have created nine nice little floated standards-compliant boxes (generic block elements), which means they happily play along with different screen resolutions and different font sizes. The default size could be decreased a bit to make three of them horizontally fit in 1024x768. However, editing them on a per-box basis doesn't really work. Maybe MediaWiki doesn't like empty lines. --Catalyst2950 17:11, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

I see you implemented those on the main page: nice! --GM-Lau 13:53, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

I'd basically pair up a lot of the links

Changing Helper Applications into CHPP is somewhat misleading, as some Helper Applications are not CHPP. There are a number of tools that don't require login or any contact with Hattrick itself. --EchoMan 10:46, February 3, 2009 (UTC)

Didn't quite realize it was a new page altogether. So is Helper Applications being dropped in favout of CHPP? I always thought helper applications was a good page to have in the menu for an easy-to-find reference to the available sites and tools. More so than a set of CHPP guidelines which would be of interest ro far less of the wiki visitors. --EchoMan 10:48, February 3, 2009 (UTC)
Good point. I changed that back. --Jhattara 14:02, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
What is that page history link? Also one other thing bugging me: we're link to the categories newbie tips + competitions. Maybe we should link to articles instead. It's a bit confusing, but that's maybe just me and a minor point anyway, the new is already much better as it used to be and luckily we don't even need HTs to change it...--Mod-Karlthegreat 14:10, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Fixed that. Some problems with MediaWiki reserved words. --Jhattara 09:56, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

bloated sidebar

There are to many items in the side bar! All these items should be on the frontpage (most are), not in the sidebar. This issue is already raised in 2005, is it gonna be fixed? A few items like (see frontpage); the game, the club, the team, the match and community should be enough. --Super07 11:27, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Editing sidebar

Let's start the discussion... --Jhattara 10:28, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
