German wikipedia: infobox minimalism

A comparison of the Angela Merkel article for German (right) and English (left) /wikipedias. The German wiki does not favor the use of infofoxes, particularly on biographies.

Infobox policy on the German wiki is governed by Formatvorlage Biografie and Infoboxen. The infoboxes are not against policy, they are merely unpopular.
