ExtensionEdit

This is a nice template, I know the purpose was just to make quick things for the main playable races... but with this, we could remove all the multiple race templates currently used. User:Coobra/Sig4 02:51, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

Started to add a few, and fully removed arakkoa, replace them any time you see one.

Is it really necessary to consolidate the various troll and dwarf types? It just looks very large (especially for trolls), and is misleading since I can't think of any place where the template would be used that would apply to every single dwarf or troll (except on the base dwarf and troll pages themselves). -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 18:19, May 18, 2010 (UTC)
Zones with boxes that display Dwarf as a whole withouth precisions on which dwarf or troll it is.
And by the way, even if dwarf have 5 icons and troll 6, that's not so much more than dragons or elementals who have 4 icons.
IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 18:22, May 18, 2010 (UTC)
But how many zones contain every single kind of troll or every single kind of dwarf? And actually, I'd probably split up elementals into their various subtypes as well. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 18:50, May 18, 2010 (UTC)
I would not put all dwarves and all trolls in one grp, you're likely to never use it that way. And if you do encounter instances of each type of troll in the same area, you'd want to split them up anyway. Now for elementals.. If you use {{race|<elemental>}} it should use all 4 types, only when you specify which type, should it just use the one icon. User:Coobra/Sig4 20:58, May 18, 2010 (UTC)
Eredar should also be displaying the Man'ari eredar icons rather than the draenei ones. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 21:20, May 18, 2010 (UTC)
Well not really, because Eredar are said to be like Draenei and Man'ari have twisted and mutated from their original form.
Or am I mistaking?
IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 07:40, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
Technically yes, the draenei are the original eredar race. Unless Blizzard pulls a "surprise!" in the future, though, there are no remaining "pure" eredar who aren't with the draenei, and the word "eredar" is used almost universally to refer to the man'ari eredar. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 17:05, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
I'm finishing the template and its doc, I let you decide which icons you prefer.
IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 17:12, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
Well... there are a few Eredar like Velen, but for the man'ari simply use {{race|<Man'ari>}}IconSmall Man'ari MaleIconSmall Man'ari Female Man'ari. User:Coobra/Sig4 17:19, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
Velen is a drenei, as are all the rest. They're not a racial offshoot; they're the original eredar who have renamed themselves to distance themselves from their demonic brethren. Even the man'ari eredar page redirects to eredar. There are not currently any eredar in the game (or even known in the universe) who are neither draenei nor man'ari. The other problem with the racial "man'ari" template is that it implies that is their name; it isn't. It's simply a description. Everyone always refers to them as eredar. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 18:35, May 19, 2010 (UTC)

Playable Races Edit

This template lacks the capability to link to the "(playable)" race pages for when it's used in various gameplay tables and such. Shouldn't there be <race>-p version for each or something to do this? -- <imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_zeal.png%7CUser:Zealvurte</imagelink><imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_talk.png|User talk:Zealvurte</imagelink><imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_contribs.png%7CSpecial:Contributions/Zealvurte</imagelink><imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_end.png|User:Zealvurte</imagelink>  17:08, July 2, 2010 (UTC)

Makes sense to me, as long as we don't get confusing. (Awesome to see this template in action by the way!) Kirkburn  talk  contr 21:25, July 2, 2010 (UTC)
Edit: we actually have {{RaceIcon}} that kinda covers that. However, once the general move to this template from individual NPC races is sorted, perhaps that one should get merged into this one?

When I originally created this template... I designed it for the 10 (at the time) playable races with a link to "<race> (playable)". Can we get that back? --k_d3 02:45, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

This template changed his purpose, he was redesigned to replace the multiple {{RACE Race}}
IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 06:25, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
I believe kd3 is suggesting adding a "playable" parameter. Kirkburn  talk  contr 13:59, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
Ow. My bad.
Does {{Race|RACE (playable)}} is ok to you all?
Not to self: "Learn to read morron."
IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 14:33, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
No need to be so harsh on yourself! I think that style works. Kirkburn  talk  contr 19:05, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
Or a {{#switch:{{lc:{{{1|}}}}}|<playable race>=<race> ([[<race> (playable)|(playable)}} to detect if the race is playable or not. --User:Gourra/Sig2 19:30, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
Do we want to display:
  • Human and Human (playable)?
or
  • Human (playable) only?
IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 20:57, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
Should be displaying as normal unless people state they're refering to the playable race in the template, in which case only the playable one should be linked. I can't think of any sensible case for displaying both, as it looses its meaning and looks silly. -- <imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_zeal.png%7CUser:Zealvurte</imagelink><imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_talk.png|User talk:Zealvurte</imagelink><imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_contribs.png%7CSpecial:Contributions/Zealvurte</imagelink><imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_end.png|User:Zealvurte</imagelink>  22:16, July 12, 2010 (UTC)
So we go for the word (playable) after the race's name?

I meant the parameter. Do we add "Race (playable)" to the list? or something else?
IconSmall Hamuul Loremaster A'noob, Arch Druid of the Noobhoof Clan (talk/contribz) 13:08, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
Woops, lol. I'm not really bothered. After that experience subst'ing the template, i think there's probably far too many verbose ones already.
<race> (playable) seems perfectly fine as it matches the page name and is obvious. -- <imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_zeal.png%7CUser:Zealvurte</imagelink><imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_talk.png|User talk:Zealvurte</imagelink><imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_contribs.png%7CSpecial:Contributions/Zealvurte</imagelink><imagelink>http://www.zealvurte.co.uk/temp/sig-av/wiki_end.png|User:Zealvurte</imagelink>  13:23, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
