New template : Planets

Hi guys!

Wanted to do this for a while because, let's face it, infoboxes are quite convenient so I created the a new template for the Planets (maybe you've already seen the Cities template as well?).

Here's an page where the template has been added : Earth West 182,498,761

Question : what information would you like to see displayed in the template?

I personnally wanted to add a Joker/Diamond field but didn't find a way to display it that I found satisfying.

Cheers!

Answer : how about the year it was discovered, or what Long Earth exploration mission (such as the Journey, or the West Quarter Billion mission) it was discovered during?

That's an idea but it's a bit tricky since we see the events through the eyes of the characters and sometimes those characters end up in place already discovered.

Like for example the Earth where is Cracked Rock. We don't know when it was discovered first or by who. Of course we know that the Mark Twain passed through it on its journey but we're not sure they weren't people living there already (even if it's more likely there were nobody since Lobsang used to stop everytime there was a sign of human life).

Do you see what I mean?

But of course we still have the option of putting the default value at Unknown when its not specified in the books.

Good point. Instead we could do when it appeared or was mentioned in the books, like with "characters".
