Really necessary to duplicate all this content?

Hmm. I get the idea here, and it's certainly preferable to actually duplicating the content across all of the associated articles. But I wonder if we really need six (I think?) articles that are identical except for the name of the object. Even if those six articles are all generated from a single template.

Couldn't we just create a "Black box artifacts" article, containing the contents of this template (plus a little explanation about which artifacts qualify), and then place redirects from all six artifacts' names to that one article?

Seems... kinder to the reader, to not (potentially) trick them into reading the exact same thing six times. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 22:29, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

OIC. They're not completely identical. ...Then, yeah, I suppose I have no objection to this. (Might consider converting the "See also" list into a Template:Navboxblackboxes, though, as it looks weird to see the name of the current article in a "See Also" list. In which case, I'd suggest placing it on each page, rather than in this template. Like the other navboxes.)
There does also seem to be some issue with font sizing, as I noticed that the Categories list at the bottom of articles which transclude this template is shown in a larger font than it is on other articles. I'll take a quick look now and see if I can whack that. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 22:36, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
