Hey everyone,

I noticed that we currently have no guideline for how to name images of male/female character versions of equipment. I am proposing that we introduce a standardised way of doing so, as I have seen varying name formats on these kinds of images. I would suggest that for these images we add (male) or (female) to the end of the image name. For example:

  • [[File:<item name> equipped (male).png]]
  • [[File:<item name> chathead (female).png]]
  • [[File:<item name> detail (male).png]]

And also add the standard that if there are female and male version of an image, both should have (female) and (male) respectively.

Sure - Makes considerably more sense than using strings of the word 'cabbage' of various lengths. I wouldn't recommend retroactively correcting existing file names though, as it's not a big deal. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 20:04, October 21, 2015 (UTC)

Be bold - this is a logical file name format, and one that is more or less standard anyway. I'd say just add it to the relevant section, and keep following it from here on. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 20:08, October 21, 2015 (UTC)

Further comment - this suggestion is, however, contrary to the moves you yourself made just yesterday, to put the gender between the item name and the file subtype. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 20:11, October 21, 2015 (UTC)
That was my bad - I thought that was the standard. Then I encountered more files with varying name formats, went to check RS:IMG and discovered that there was no standard currently. When I thought about it more I realised the putting (male)/(female) at the end would make more sense & I thought that it would be worth making a thread to let other people know of a standard format, giving that there seems to be some confusion.

  • Support and can we please change the descriptions - these are not players wearing Saradomin cloaks (as you might see at RuneFest) but characters. Rich Farmbrough, 17:49 28 October 2015 (UTC).

Closing - The proposed rules will be added to the image name section of RS:IMG. User talk:ThePsionic.png: RS3 Inventory image of User talk:ThePsionic ThePsionic Special:Contributions/ThePsionic.png: RS3 Inventory image of Special:Contributions/ThePsionic 11:19, November 3, 2015 (UTC)
