Volatility should be added to the template. It is a better than heat for measuring the type of oscillator. Low volatility means that it is a billiard table, or close to it. High volatility means it will likely have sparks or at least exterior rotor areas.--Scot Ellison 10:04, 1 July 2011 (CDT)

I like the idea and have added volatility to the template. It can be used on a page by adding something like "|v=0.50" (without the quotes) to an oscillator's template at the top of its page. For categorization reasons, include exactly 2 digits after the decimal place (and I will create categories for each possible different value from 0.00 to 1.00). Cheers!

Exclude constellations (or put them somewhere else)

Currently, the still life infobox template keeps pseudo-objects and constellations separate from the main category of oscillators, however in this template, things like traffic light and interchange are lumped in with the rest of the oscillators. Can this infobox be made to discern between "strict oscillators" and constellations? - AwesoMan3000 (talk) 17:18, 21 December 2018 (UTC)

When strict volatility is not a number

For the electric fence article, I changed the template so that it uses {{#iferror}} statements for the heat and volatility, as well as the "periodic objects with minimum population" category. I couldn't get it to work for strict volatility, possibly because I got confused by the more complex hierarchy for that parameter. Can someone please fix it so that it doesn't show an error at the top of the page? Ian07 (talk) 16:23, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
