Hey Scarecroe! I was wondering if you could un-block me from the Superman Wiki. I was blocked in 2009 for creating fan-fiction. Back in 2009, that was the first wiki I was ever on and I really didn't know the rules of the road. I've defiantly learned my lesson and I'm currently an admin on many wiki's and part of the Head Council of the Disney Channel Wiki Alliance. Please and Thanks :D
The reason for the box formatting was 1) so the volume actually linked to all the issues which they don't now thanks to your new method. 2) So you get a preview of the issue and then when you follow the link you see the whole cover as well as find out about the issue.
You shouldn't need to see the full cover on the volume pages because the purpose of a volume page is to link to the issues. Something they now don't do. Granted not all the issues have articles yet BUT they would be created eventually and at least the links would still be there. Regardless of whether it is "simpler formatting" the box method was better.
