Forum:Holiday NPCs vs regular NPCs
I've noticed several images have been uploaded of various NPCs as they appear at the Heimland Games. These images have been placed in articles of their respective characters. In addition to that, their examine information (which varries slightly at the Heimland Games) has been integrated into the infobox. All together, this creates a mess of Christmas information which has little relevance to the article. Yes, we are a wiki, we are supposed to document everything; however, what use is knowing what the little hat Thok wore to the Heimland Games looks like? Trick question, there isn't. Look at the following examples: Thok, Wartface, Sir Amic Varze.
With all that said, I propose that from this point forward, unique examine information, chatheads, and other images in respects to holiday events be kept on the article for that holiday event. Furthermore, any additional details on that NPC during the event should be kept to a minimum on their articles at the editor's discretion.16:28, December 26, 2010 (UTC)

Support- You're right: it may be better to put those pictures at the pages of the holiday event and not at pages of the NPC's. Otherwise everything will be messed up again when there's another holiday event.
Oppose - I don't really see how multiple images in an infobox are problematic. These NPCs got two. Look at the infobox for ogre. 16:36, December 26, 2010 (UTC)
- I see it this way: if the article says he's been at the Games, viewers would like to know how he looked. 17:09, December 26, 2010 (UTC)
Support - It will look stupid after the Christmas event finishes.05:57, December 27, 2010 (UTC)
- That's equally possible. The point of this proposal is just to get them off the main articles and on to a holiday article. 13:11, December 27, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - Stelercus's proposal will be implemented. Holiday-exclusive information about various NPC's, locations, items, et cetera, should be kept to a minimum on the main article, and should instead be mentioned on the article about the holiday event. --LiquidTalk 04:00, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
