Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes VI (Do Not Post Current Politics Here)

Make a Wikimedia account (go into wikipedia, press "Create and account" in the top right), you'll see a red link in the top right, around where the account and login links were that says "Sandbox". Click it and edit below the line.

You can look at Wikipedia's Infobox how-tos and such, they explain the code used for it, or you can copy templates from articles when you either edit or view the source code and then change the information in them. It takes a bit of practice, but I'm sure you'll figure it out. I started off making massive infoboxes in Photoshop too and I find this easier.
 
I'd also recommend using the Visual Editor if code's too much trouble. It allows you to edit the article and Wikibox with a very simple interface. You do need some very basic coding to make things like italics and stuff, but with some practice, it gets very easy.
 
Here's another wikibox from my American Monarchy series, the 1990 leadership election for the Democratic Republican Coalition, the only anti-monarchist party in the Commonwealth of Columbia.


The Democratic Republican Coalition (DRC) was founded in 1969 and is the only political party in the Commonwealth of Columbia to actively call for the abolition of the monarchy. It was founded when several anti-monarchist political parties, advocacy groups, and non-governmental organizations united under one big-tent party. Its inaugural leaders were activist and preacher Martin Luther King Jr., who famously broke with the leadership of the Solidarity and Justice Party (S&J), including his father Martin Luther King Sr., for their refusal to call for the abolition of the monarchy outright, and Harvard University philosophy professor John Rawls, the author of The Nature of Justice, which is still known today as one of the finest and most thorough treatises against the entire institution and system of monarchy. Its members are free to vote however they wish (conscience vote) on all bills, except on those relating to the monarchy and its powers. The two-leader system continued following the founding leaders' retirement and is still in effect today.

The 1990 leadership election was called following the retirement of founding leader John Rawls. The other seat not up for election was held by Robert Reich, who succeeded Bella Abzug in 1989. Three rounds of balloting were held from 14 June to 20 June, 1990. All 250 members of the National Committee of the Democratic Republican Coalition, made up of current and former MPs and Lords, party officials, and leaders of local branches of the DRC, were entitled to a vote.

Five DRC MPs stood in the election. Former antiwar activist and education reform expert Tom Hayden narrowly defeated prominent democratic socialist economist Franklin Delano Roosevelt III, a scion of the noble Roosevelt family, in the third and final round. Hayden promised to bring a sharp, youthful, radical contrast with Rawls's detached, academic style. He ran on the platform of appealing to a larger student activist base, which resonated with the party's membership, which was skewing middle-aged. Roosevelt, the grandson of former Prime Minister Franklin Delano Roosevelt, later the Duke of Campobello, differed greatly with his family in terms of political views since his days at Yale University. His candidacy was significant in that his first cousin, James Roosevelt III, the 3rd Duke of Campobello, was serving as Shadow Health Secretary in the Cabinet of Progressive leader Joe Biden, and would go on to serve as Health Secretary when Biden became Prime Minister in 1992.

Three other candidates ran, Murray Rothbard, representing the coalition's libertarian wing, Gloria Allred, whose candidacy suffered because her base of support mostly coincided with Hayden's, and Bill O'Reilly, who represented the coalition's right wing but was personally unpopular among party insiders. Hayden assumed office immediately after winning the election, and served until his assassination in 1997, after which his wife, actress-turned-activist Jane Fonda, was elected unopposed to replace him.

A Roosevelt being in the same party as Rothbard is both insane yet believable in this context.

FDR III actually broke quite a bit from his family IRL. His wikipedia article is a fascinating read. In the 60s, he worked with civil rights activists, registering voters in Mississippi. He was even arrested but was quickly released after they realized who he was. As an economist, he wrote Marxist critiques of existing theories and was considered a "radical" economist.

The 1975 Australian federal election was held in Australia on 13 December 1975. All 127 seats in the House of Representatives and all 64 seats in the Senate were up for election, due to a double dissolution.

Malcolm Fraser had been commissioned as caretaker prime minister following the dismissal of Gough Whitlam's three-year-old Labor government by Governor-General Sir John Kerr, on 11 November 1975. The same day, Fraser advised an immediate double dissolution, in accordance with Kerr's stipulated conditions.

Whitlam's Labor Party secured government, winning the largest majority government to date in Australian history. The Coalition of Fraser's Liberal Party of Australia and Doug Anthony's National Country Party suffered a 29-seat swing and saw its lower house caucus cut almost in half, to 32 seats—their lowest amount of seats since 1946.

Labor's success is attributed to public anger about the dismissal of the Labor government in November and the National Party's refusal to consider Labor's appropriation bills in the Senate.

Edgar Allan Poe survives his brush with death on October 7, 1849, and becomes a strident abolitionist after seeing the countless atrocities of the Baltimore slave trade. He eventually joins forces with John Brown during his raid at Harpers Ferry, where he is killed on the last day of the raid.

Would love to see the infobox for the Thirteenth Doctor
I really didn't have much actually planned for this, but here we are.
In-universe reason for The Doctor to regenerate into a lookalike of Clara Oswald is because the Doctor needed to "remind themselves" of something (Similar to Peter Capaldi's Doctor)
. Fun Fact: Harry Melling(Dudley Dursley in OTL Harry Potter) is the Grandson of Patrick Troughton.
I like to believe that during the 13th Doctor's tenure is another multi-Doctor special that includes Sean Pertwee playing the Third Doctor during his days at UNIT.
 
I'm back on my first account! Somehow I managed to get the email back.
Anyway, I have an updated version of the box that I had on the inaugural post.

"And as Big Ben strikes ten, the polls close, and we can give you the results of our exit poll. We've spoken to fourteen thousand people in two hundred constituencies tonight, and, er, we hope they've been telling us the truth."

Big Ben strikes ten.

"There it is, ten o'clock, and we say John Major is to remain Prime Minister and a majority is possible but not certain. And reaction from Huntingdon already up there on the right in the Conservative club, all applauding there. Labour Party headquarters, rather more sombre scenes. So, here are the details, John Major is to remain Prime Minister and this is why: Conservatives 40%, Labour 34% according to our exit poll, that would be around the same vote that they got five years ago in 1992, and possibly even worse. The Liberal Democrats on 20 percent, that's an increase of a couple percent from the last election, others on 6."

Nice work. Also the other possible reason for the Doctor looking like Clara is to reveal she wasn't lying to those Cybermen. "Clara" was a future Doctor all along playing the role of companion to complete a time loop and ensure certain events she remembers actually take place as they should. (Chiefly Day of the Doctor as by this point certain revelations mean she knows Time was a con job).

Having spent years forced to re-enact the past and with no real ability to escape the script "Clara-Doctor" is more determined than usual to alter time for the better now she has the option.

How did this Doctor Who TL get around the regeneration limit issue?
