Duplicating the information from the Mapper Table (the icons) to the relevant mapper pages seems like an admirable goal, but it also makes me wonder how to maintain a Single Version of the Truth, so that they cannot get out of sync. Myask (talk) 00:57, 25 October 2016 (MDT)
- Out of sync with what? This template tries to include INES Mapper XXX/Icon page, and includes as default when it doesn't exist. I propose moving icons from Mapper to corresponding mapper subpages, then using this template everywhere. From what I got by googling, it might be easily done with this tool --PostNES (talk) 19:18, 26 October 2016 (MDT)
I'm not altogether certain what we gain from changing everything over to use the template. I don't think the icons would look good outside of the grid, so I'm not certain what's the point of moving the data out of the wikitable and into a large set of articles.
e.g. if we take the copy from 195:
it just doesn't look good to me... even if those icons were the Waixing logo instead.
- Actually, I made this template in first place because I didn't like typing a lot of
[[INES Mapper XXX|XXX]]-type links... then, icons looked like a nice feature --PostNES (talk) 04:11, 27 October 2016 (MDT)
- I don't think the icons should be used outside of the mapper grid. In the middle of text they will be very obtrusive. I think the template without icons is nice to have, though. - Rainwarrior (talk) 13:58, 28 October 2016 (MDT)
