This is a small addition I thought needed to RS:IMG#NAME. Basically, if an image contains the {{historical image}} template (or should contain it), the image name should be Monster/NPC/Chathead/Other old.png (or historical), that way it can be easily distinguished as an outdated image. Currently, these images can be found under historical, old, and some with no distinction.

Support - seems fine to me. eCopM0F.png Brownfire  eCopM0F.png Talk Edit this because I am a noob.Oil4 I made this 18:58, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Support - I assume this only applies to monsters/chatheads/npcs/etc that have been replaced by newer models? Doesn't seem too sensible to add it to things like holiday events, or even something like Big fish. cqm 19:09,16/7/2012 (UTC) (UTC)

Yes it does, so for example: We've had File:Billy_bob_chathead.png and then Jagex had a graphic update and Billy bob was updated, our File:Billy_bob_chathead.png would be moved to File:Billy_bob_chathead_old.png and the new Billy bob chathead would go to File:Billy_bob_chathead.png. Things that aren't replaced shouldn't be old.png. Hair 19:19, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Support - You summed it up perfectly. MolMan 20:16, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Sounds like it could be helpful and it doesn't have any drawbacks. ɳex undique 22:19, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Comment - What if there are two old images for one item/npc/whatever (if it got updated 2 or more times)? bad_fetustalk 23:41, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

I just do X old2.png. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 05:21, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Basically adding a line to the policy of what is already so. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 05:21, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Support - As per above. Makes sense to me. Blaze_fire.png12.png 08:19, July 21, 2012 (UTC)

Request for Closure - The discussion is over, and the consensus is obvious that this should be added to RS:IMG#NAME, with historical images being Monster/NPC/Chathead/Detail/Other old.png. Hair 16:11, July 24, 2012 (UTC)

Closed - Historical images should now all be called Subject old.png. This will also be added to RS:IMG#NAME. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 16:29, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
