Greetings Users, I write this because have come to notice a problem with some of the galleries we have here on Disney Wikia. Users apply so many images to galleries that sometimes we are forced to create separate for screenshots, printed media and things but still users continue to apply more. The screenshots for the Captain Hook/Gallery had to be split into two separate galleries, one for films and one for television and yet users continue to apply more images as time goes. The situation is indeed a problem and I do not believe we can continue as we are creating separate galleries. We need a new and better way of creating galleries without the worry of making separate ones and I believe I have found a suggestion.

We could try hiding the galleries using this coding. There are some wikia's using this kind of technique such as The Once Upon a Time Wikia and the Star vs. the Forces of Evil Wikia. My interest into dealing with this problem was inspired by the galleries used in the Once Upon a Time Wikia. I tried adapting the coding from that wikia to this wikia but I soon found out that it would require a lot of new codings to make it work so I scrapped the idea for months until I discovered that the users of Star vs. the Forces of Evil Wikia had found a more easier way to what I am suggesting could be adapted for Disney Wikia. What they have done was genius, the gallery for Star Butterfly on the Star vs. the Forces of Evil Wikia now operates more quicker with this coding in place. The need to create individual galleries would never be required ever again.

Listed bellow are Gallery samples. Two from the Once Upon a Time Wikia and Star vs. the Forces of Evil and three prototype galleries that demonstrate how it will work here on Disney Wikia. Also on display is the coding itself.

Of course what I am suggesting would be a really big change and some would find it hard to adapt as everyone is more use to the way things are now, but the point is we're making bigger galleires and uploading more images everyday that we are forced to create separate ones which just postpones, so we have to do something about that. I don't plan on forcing us into going ahead with this, if no one is ready for this new approach I can respect that but if you all agree with it we may finally have a new way of creating galleries in the near future.

I await to hear your opinions.
