Back to template

I totaly agre with this merger of {{Alliance Icon Small}}, {{Horde Icon Small}} and {{Neutral Icon Small}} as well as the larger versions {{Alliance Icon}}, {{Horde Icon}} and {{Neutral Icon}} - but to take some of the work load off -- I think we should change the redirects on {{Alliance}} and {{Horde}} template to be {{FactionIcon|<Alliance>|<small>}} for {{Alliance}} and {{FactionIcon|<Horde>|<small>}} for {{Horde}} and make {{Neutral}} be {{FactionIcon|<Neutral>|<small>}} ((After the old {{Neutral}} template has been changed to its proper {{Reputation|<neutral>}} format)) -- that way we can still use the {{Alliance}} and {{Horde}} templates and not have to replace them all ( my opinion). -- (M o r p hJames E.

I was personally thinking more the other way around. {{alliance}} and {{horde}} is terribly convenient. Put parameters on these for the (less frequent) need for the other icons. But that assumption may be in correct, which is why I put it up for discussion. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 10:57 PM, 26 Jul 2009 (EDT)
At the moment {{Alliance}} and {{Horde}} both redirect to {{Alliance Icon Small}} and {{Horde Icon Small}} - going with your idea of merging the individual Icon template {{Alliance Icon}}, {{Alliance Icon Small}}, {{Horde Icon}}, {{Horde Icon Small}}, {{Neutral Icon}}, and {{Neutral Icon Small}} could be all merged into the template {{FactionIcon}} since it does both sized for all 3 factions - 1 main template -- and we can change {{Alliance}} and {{Horde}} to no longer be redirects but become shortcuts to {{FactionIcon|Alliance|small}} and {{FactionIcon|Horde|small}}. We can then keep {{Alliance}} and {{Horde}} on all pages as they are -- and just change the pages that use teh Large and Neutral icons -- or better yet since {{Neutral}} no longer is used as a Reputation template it can be the {{FactionIcon|Neutral|Small}} counterpart? -- (M o r p hJames E.

That's fine. Side note, maybe it's {{FactionIcon}} that's missing combat support that was the problem with {{NPC}}. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 12:00 AM, 27 Jul 2009 (EDT)

I would think to make things easier and have to type out less, that small would be the default instead of the large versions. User:Coobra/Sig4 04:56, September 12, 2009 (UTC)

I think this is a more reasonable sort order ({{FactionIcon/dev}}). Does anyone disagree? Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 6:31 PM, 13 Aug 2009 (EDT)

I figured that Alliance 32, Horde 32 and Neutral 32 were more impotant factions thant Aldor 32 and Scryers 32 so did not put the latter 2 in perfect alpha order with the primaries. So I choose the way the Live version is (personaly). -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

Ya but... it's not alphabetical. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 7:05 PM, 13 Aug 2009 (EDT)
I agree it is not perfect Aldor, Alliance, Combat, Horde, Neutral, Scryers order but so far I have never see anyone use Aldor up against any other faction other than Scryers, or use Alliance with any other faction other than Horde or Neutral -- in this case it is in Alpha order Alliance will always be before Horde before Neutral and Aldor is always before Scryers. Primaries and then Secondaries, then yes it is in perfect alpha order. -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph

Going with what you just said, no need to architect for a situation that isn't happening yet. So I'm putting in the alpha sort, so that the template is easier to maintain. If any other icons are added, no changes will be needed to support them. If in the future this "natural order" sorting is a problem, we'll override it.

That works for me. Easy is better (most of the time) -- (M o r p hJames E. Rooks, Jr. aka: Morph
