Yellow red / yellow

Red and yellow for a traffic light means it will be green soon. However, since there is red in it users might think it is worse than yellow. What do you think? J.Hoeffler (talk) 18:26, 14 October 2013 (CEST)

What if the warning symbol were on the row of the replication, as opposed to up at the top? If more than one paper replicates the same original, this would seem to be the more natural organization? GarretChristensen (talk) 20:57, 3 February 2015

Hi Garret, thank you. We had already had the idea to have separate symbols for each replication. Then the symbols would have to be much smaller though in order to avoid messy pages. Jan Fahrenholz who set up the semantic wiki for us was also skeptical if the automatic setting of traffic lights would work if there is more than one on a page and if it is in a template that is used in a semantic form. One could just put the symbols by hand but the wiki code is not easy for every user. That's why we use the forms that allow to add content without understanding any code. I am not sure if there is a technical solution to this but we could try to find someone who could help.
We thought if there can only be one traffic light the community needs to build a consensus in the discussion. That also has its advantages. For that we would need a more active community though.
We have some studies with more than one replication or replications of more than one study. The problem with these mainly is that our forms do not yet understand them and that makes them difficult to handle.
The developer of the semantic media wikis has shown me some example we can follow, and now we can list authors but we need some more improvement so that it works smoothly.
