Thank you for these samples.
I'm going to be honest and say that I am not a fan of all these proposed changes. Before I explain myself I would just like to say that as a wiki editor who has edited and even created Vin pages many times I fully understand how time consuming and annoying editing Vin pages can be. Frankly, editing vin pages are a pain in the you know where.
Now for the reasons why I'm not a huge fan of these changes... I believe that when we combine the serial numbers it can look very messy because you end up with one line consisting of one bus/serial number and the following line consisting of 8 buses/serial number merged together. Maybe it's just me and my mild perfectionism but I am not a huge fan.
On a positive note I think removing the alternating blue was a good idea because it's very annoying when you have to insert Vin numbers in the middle of a big page. There were a few vins in the past that I wanted to add but the page was soo long is simply discouraged me from doing so because I would spend an hour playing with the colours.
I am also not a huge fan of all the NFI Xcelsior models into one year. New Flyer manufacturers many buses in a year so if we were to combine them all onto one page it would make for a veeeeeeery long page. I am also not a fan of this because I like to visit a random page and look and see, for example, who owns 2014 XDE40s and to see what they are used for but I'm pretty sure that I'm the only one that does that.
Anyways, that you for these great suggestions!
I wish I had a little more positivity to spread but maybe next time.
