Hi. It's me again.

So I have been looking at shop articles. In particular, images of the shops. Right now, we put the images showing the location of the shop on the world map in the image parameter.

What I was thinking is that we add a map parameter to the infobox, like we did with Template:Infobox non-player character, to put the maps in a more appropriate place and save the image parameter for a high quality, OoO shot of the shop.

Nothing complicated about this proposal. Just thought I should get consensus because I have seen notices about making changes without consensus on other infoboxes and I thought that might apply here.

I'm also quite tired and can't be bothered writing any more. Matt (t) 12:58, June 17, 2011 (UTC)

Proposal modification - Template:Infobox Area would also benefit from these changes, so we shall add them to that too if this passes. Matt (t) 04:32, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

And Template:Infobox City. Matt (t) 06:18, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

Support - As nom. Matt (t) 12:58, June 17, 2011 (UTC)

Strong support - I noticed this as I was cleaning up Sophanem pages/images recently. Some of them have the map at the top of the infobox, while others have a picture of the stall or shop. Having either a picture of the stall or an orb'd picture of the shop would be fantastic. The map should go underneath the infobox like on the NPC one. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 18:01, June 17, 2011 (UTC)

I was thinking more, an actual image of the shop'p building/surroundings, like this, or maybe an inside shot. Matt (t) 23:12, June 17, 2011 (UTC)
Okay.. So was I? But not all shops have "shops", some are just stalls. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 23:13, June 17, 2011 (UTC)
Just, making sure. Smile You could get the surroundings for stalls. Matt (t) 23:17, June 17, 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, why would you want the back of a random wall of a completely unrelated building in it? Almost all stall pictures are transparent. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 23:20, June 17, 2011 (UTC)
You could also do something like this for shops. I'll work on getting a stall pic. Matt (t) 23:36, June 17, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, nah. A trans of the stall is fine. Smile Matt (t) 23:42, June 17, 2011 (UTC)
And for shops that don't have a building or stall, such as the Dwarven Mine General Store, I'm guessing an image of the shopkeeper will be taken along with the surrounding area.  Tien  15:21, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - In case you were wondering about what a hd ooo shot would look like in an infobox, here it is. Matt (t) 23:25, June 17, 2011 (UTC)

I think it'll look awkward to have the minimap icon in the middle of the infobox. :P sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 23:43, June 17, 2011 (UTC)
Well we can change that in this thread too. Matt (t) 23:44, June 17, 2011 (UTC)
Cambodian child labor? Cook is too cheap for that. I'm willing to bet he outsourced the work to somewhere even cheaper, like Chad or Mali. You can get labor for a price cheaper than dirt in certain parts of Africa. (Of course, transportation issues are why those countries aren't industrial centers.) --LiquidTalk 00:01, June 18, 2011 (UTC)
It's slave labour, bro JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 03:34, June 18, 2011 (UTC)
  • Support - Tidy. I presume the logos will remain on the left? User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:15, June 18, 2011 (UTC)

Requesting proposal change - Matt, I think "Template:Infobox area" could do with this change too. Many area articles have nothing but the map on the entire article with no other pictures. I think an OoO of the area would be awesome as the top picture of the infobox, and have the map further down as well. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 04:17, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

Proposal modification - Template:Infobox Area would also benefit from these changes, so we shall add them to that too if this passes. Matt (t) 04:32, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

I support that. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 13:08, June 19, 2011 (UTC)
Umm, and Template:Infobox city. <.< sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 05:34, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
And Template:Infobox City. Matt (t) 06:18, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Lol, to think I got in trouble for adding the map and image parameters to Infobox City when I created the template. Lol Chicken7 >talk 07:20, June 23, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Tidiness is never a bad thing, especially on a wiki. (And who can say that it isn't really worth it - other changes must seem equally or more pointless to others) Quest.png Morte369 Hexcrest detail.png 04:05, June 29, 2011 (UTC)

Closed - Original proposal and modifications passed. 222 talk 11:20, July 10, 2011 (UTC)

Post-closure comment - While implementing the changes, I have found many infoboxes in exactly the same situation. I have added/will be adding the changes to them via UCS. Just thought I should put them all here.
