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)

Concerning the STRONG Tag and Silly File Names[edit]

Good afternoon.

Thank you for your help and suggestions on my contributions to the Wiki. I wanted to ask a few more questions, just to make sure I stay out of trouble.

First, you said the BIG tags are illegal. Does that also include the STRONG, SUB, and SUP tags? All of these are Mediawiki enabled.

Second, assuming the image is properly categorized and an appropriate description and license are included with them, why are silly file names a problem? On some parts of the Internet, this is a very common action that adds humor without really causing any file issues. I have personally governed Wikis of moderate sizes that have used this method with no problem. This is because their categories were well-organized.

The rules don't say anything against it (nor do they warn about automatic bans for BIG tags, you need to fix that). I'd appreciate some clarification and, if applicable, a better warning system in the rules (as well as a link to the rules in the Side Bar).

Thank you, and I apologize for any prior inconvenience I may have caused.

You were given an answer in the PM you sent me on the forums. Please don't seek different answers from different moderators until you get one that is satisfactory to you. To clarify for anyone else, the guidelines specifically prohibits use of HTML code in general where alternatives exist. For wiki formatting tips see the "help" tab on the wiki editor. The auto-ban is to avoid vandalism and is set to default as on most wikis. A link to the style guide on the sidebar is a good point and we will implement it -- thanks for the suggestion. ~ SolSys (talk) 20:59, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
For the sake of the audience, please repeat the PM here, if you can. Furthermore, I made sure to make the image file names specifically describe what they represent. No silly name will be unaccompanied by a detailed and relevant title. Thank you, and again, I apologize for the inconvenience. --TurtleShroom (talk) 21:27, 29 February 2020 (UTC)
