Buildings Page[edit]

The other day, I edited the Buildings page, replacing some of the photos for the buildings with their associative icons. I thought this was intended because every buidling's photo on the page was an icon template, except for the few I changed, but then it was undone. Isn't the point of using the icon template to not use the direct file reference, abstracting away the source so that it can be easily/seamlessly changed? Thanks. --Clevin (talk) 04:27, 23 April 2017 (CEST)

The icon template was originally for the modifier icons, but it's useful for all icons that are used multiple times. If you use the template in the section, or in the case of the building icons in the table row, it links to then you have created a self link. – Lillebror (talk) 10:27, 24 April 2017 (CEST)
Wouldn't the ideal solution to then edit the icon template to allow a boolean setting to not create a link? That way we're still abstracting away the direct file reference, while not creating self-referencing links. Thanks. --Clevin (talk) 06:23, 1 May 2017 (CEST)
