Template revamp Edit

{{cost}} has been revamped for 1.14. It also uses {{documentation}} now.

You'll notice there's a lot less documented options. Cost has gotten too big and unmanagable (we've had this discussion before). It's time to make a move to {{costitem}} for items that are only very rarely used as currency and the tier tokens.

All of the old options are still in the template, but not in the documentation. As soon as I get an up-to-date xmldump I plan to have my bot do a global find-and-replace on {{cost|<deprecated option>=#}} with {{costitem|#|Item name}}. --k_d3 18:58, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Okay... nearly half a year later, but progress. The tier tokens are gone. All of them. Nearly all the custom (name/icon/cost trio) uses are gone. Working my way through the non-pvp/emblem params as I type this.
Soon as the jobqueue clears and pages using deprecated cost parameters category stays empty the deprecated options will die. Yay for simplification. --k_d3 02:39, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

How far do you intend to go? IMO, having started down this path, the only thing that should be left in {{cost}} are things that are never represented as items. I cannot tell, then, if failing to deprecate pvp/emblem tokens is simply a method of partitioning the work, or a decision not to deprecate them. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 23:15, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

I'm stopping where I'm at now. Stuff tracked in the currency pane stays. Gold stays. Honor/arena/achievement points stay. This way we've got a line to set. --k_d3 23:26, September 24, 2009 (UTC)
  • shrug* Okay, you're the one doing the work. OTOH, the Strand of the Ancients Mark of Honor compares unfavorably to Brewfest Prize Token on "number of uses", equally on "represented by an item" and is only superior in "is among the things represented on the currency pane in-game". Sure, you've set a line. I just set the line a little more narrowly. (Yes, that phrase makes no sense mathematically.) ... and am not particularly interested in taking over from you.

Missing PvP Currencies Edit

It seems we're missing Inv jewelry amulet 01 [Strand of the Ancients Mark of Honor] and Inv misc coin 16 [Venture Coin] from this, if anyone would like to please add them. --User:Jpsblue/Sig 16:06, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

See {{costitem}}. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 16:54, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
It's a consistency thing: the other battleground marks of honor are still in {{cost}}. (And I should look at dates more often.) -- foxlit (talk) 20:57, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Emblem of Triumph out of dateEdit

I can't edit this page, but it should be Holy_SummonChampion instead of Holy_EmpowerChampion. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 06:41, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Was noting the same thing. Please use Spell holy summonchampion instead of Spell holy empowerchampion. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 4:59 PM, 6 Aug 2009 (EDT)
Should be fixed now. --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 21:09, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

sks error Edit

Using this template for sks produces an extra close bracket at the end: 300 Inv misc platnumdisks Burzolog (talk) 02:37, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

Fixed. User:Coobra/Sig4 02:59, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

File name capitalizationEdit

Due to the conversion of all icons to lowercase filenames, some icons do not show properly with this template. Should be an easy fix for anyone with permissions to do so. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 23:50, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Done. --k_d3 00:21, January 14, 2010 (UTC)
Um... A recent change seems to have broken things... Asking for Emblems of Triumph (eot=nn) currently register as "Emblems of Frost". --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:44, January 14, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm... Stranger than that. The LINK is to Emblem of Triumph. I don't get an image, though... I DO get text: "Emblem of Frost". The icon (spell_holy_summonchampion.png) is one of those that are currently borked. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:52, January 14, 2010 (UTC)

IoC Marks Edit

Isle of Conquest marks are missing the "16px" modifier. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 19:43, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

Fixed. User:Coobra/Sig4 20:34, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

HonorEdit

Is there any chance that the spaces before and after the icon can be removed for Honor? Because the icon is so slender, with the spaces it looks very isolated from the amount. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 18:24, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Cataclysm points revampEdit

Given that honor, conquest, heroism, valor points are not items and will be replacing Arena points and emblems, perhaps it's time to add them to this list?  IconSmall Dwarf Male Thio: Talk - Contributions 19:00, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Noticed that also early this morning. I was going to update it myself–as the code looks pretty straight forward–but it's locked to standard editors. —MJBurrage(TC) 01:41, October 16, 2010 (UTC)
Highly used templates often will be locked. User:Coobra/Sig4 02:37, October 16, 2010 (UTC)
I think that Justice Points and Valor Points should be added to the {{cost}}-templat as well. Hans Kamp (talk) 10:14, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
Any word on getting the Justice Points added to the {{cost}}-templat yet? There are so many pages that need updated, like the Heirloom page, but can't be at the moment, unless someone knows a workaround and can do it. : Dakender (talk) 23:25, November 13, 2010 (UTC)

Guild Achievement Points Edit

Would like to request Guild Achievement points be added to the {{cost}} template too. The icon differs from the standard achievement point one, so it seems best to have its own cost. —Tindelli (talk) 21:14, December 3, 2010 (UTC)
