Awwww, that's cool!

So you'd use it to type in your data without having to write the whole texts, then copy it to the clipboard and insert it in a comment on the Pro Kit Box page. This would certainly make it easier if one wants to contribute a few boxes.

However, there are a few things to consider:

  1. I'd still have to add all the data from the comments manually. This is fine for a few boxes, but if someone wants to contribute many boxes and on a regular basis, I think the Excel sheet solution causes less work: It's easier for contributors to just type in the numbers in the right columns, and it's easier for me just to import the rows.
  2. Unfortunately, it's not so easy to host JavaScript pages on Asphalt Wiki. Every release has to be checked and permitted manually by Fandom staff. It's understandable as JavaScript can just too easily be used to harm a site, especially if it's further processed by automated wiki software.
  3. JavaScript also has to be hooked somewhere so that the wiki software executes it. I'm working on a JavaScript countdown in the background and have faced many problems I didn't expect.
  4. You can, however, create personal JavaScript here that only afffects your own view; others can't see it unless they copy your code to their own personal JavaScript page. If you want, I can tell you how it works so that you can experiment a bit.

As for the attachments: I think that's also for copyright reasons. If a file is shared on Fandom, Fandom becomes responsible for it. They would have to hire staff that checks all attachments or face legel consequences in the worst case.

By the way, I never told you: I always smile when I read your nickname. Did you read "Flatland" by Edwin A. Abbott? If not, look here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flatland. I always think of you as a crazy inhabitant of Flatland dreaming about new dimensions to explore. :)
