This template seems to be broken as it doesn't display the contents. Is this an experimental template, and if so should it be marked as such so people don't use it?--facetofcathy 23:24, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

It looks like the template was already in use, and the test changes broke it, so I reverted to the previous state. I'm not too fond of the previous look of the template, though. There's another template that does the same thing--Template:RelatedLinks--but nobody liked that one either. --æþel 00:55, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
I feel that the Related Links template applies to the whole page, and can go at the bottom, but that information is often just put in a section with a heading, which works nicely, so I'm not surprised it doesn't get used. I also find it too graphically dense so it draws the eye away from other parts of the page.
What I used the See Also for, not speaking for anyone else, was linking to related concepts in a specific section of the page. The right justified infobox style doesn't really suit that use even though I thought it looked a little more stylish, but if the template is intended for general use, my usage can be coded by hand easy enough. --facetofcathy 13:19, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
