ALTs and Their Schools

How about a format like this to improve readability? owencunn (talk) 14:56, 29 July 2020 (JST)

This might be just a personal opinion, but I actually find the list (as it is currently) easier to read than the table. The list allows the school names to be unabbreviated, which makes it seem less cluttered.
It also allows order by seniority. The Takanosu JHS cell is merged across the three current ALTs who happen to be clumped together in seniority as well, but that won't always be the case. Plus there's already the base school history table right below it; the contrast between the list and table is nice, I thought. I may be in the minority though. --SeanC (talk) 17:25, 29 July 2020 (JST)
Oh ok, yeah maybe it's all down to personal preference. For me, what I find strange is that all the schools are listed under "Schools", and then they are all listed again under "ALTs and Their Schools" which I find makes the list of schools appear long (when scrolling). And that is repeated on the Kitaakita page too. owencunn (talk) 08:31, 30 July 2020 (JST)
Actually, you make a good point about the info being repeated on the main Kitaakita page. When I was paring down the main page, I wasn't sure how much info was too much info to leave. I think I'll go ahead and remove the ALTs section from the Kitaakita page and just leave it here (the whole point of this page was to make the main page shorter, after all).
I suppose the extra lists do make it long. But, the section of former schools is also in list form, so I kind of figured there was no way around length. Plus, there are already quite a few tables on the page - the reason I like this as a list is because it doesn't overwhelm with tables. Although, there may be way to reorder the information on this page so we alternate between lists and tables more frequently? --SeanC (talk) 09:45, 31 July 2020 (JST)
Yeah sorry, my suggestion should have been made on the Kitaakita page. Keeping that data on the Education page makes sense. owencunn (talk) 12:10, 31 July 2020 (JST)
