Forum:Naming of male/female equipment images
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.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.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. 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. 20:40, October 21, 2015 (UTC)
- 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. 11:19, November 3, 2015 (UTC)
