Does anybody actually use the height & width adjustment parameters? It's annoying that they have to come between the quote text & author/source parameters, as it makes it fiddly to create quotes with the author visible when you don't really care about the width & height (e.g. see template:drinkquote). If those parameters are unused we could delete them or move them to come after the source & author, but I guess that might mean adjusting hundreds of pages around the site.

I've had the same thought several times. Unfortunately they are used once or twice. There's other quote templates that work just as well. Toast s.png (Toast) and marmalade 15:07, 4 February 2009 (EST)

I came here to bitch and moan about the crappy formatting. The "quotee" is like two br's below the quote. Of course, the template, probably taken from WP, is incredibly obtuse to parse and edit... can we fix, please? Now?

I've never liked it but I'll leave it to our coding experts to piss about with. Might be better to make a new version altogether: what's the point of the variable sized quote marks anyhow; the |4 & |5 are both the same size/font etc - might as well both be just |4 as it stands.

Agreed, this template sucks and needs to be rewritten in "sane" code". Nx? Pi? Or will I do it, and create horrible job lists? ħumanUser talk:Human 01:51, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
Go on H, Should be good for a giggle. Trouble is it's used all over so any alteration'll still have to retain the same format. Suggestion for the code types: make a bot that sticks SUBST: in all the existing uses & then replace it with something sensible? I am eating Toast& honeychat 01:56, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
