So....at this moment, there's

  1. untrim
  2. untrim hood
  3. trim
  4. trim hood
  5. old untrim
  6. old untrim hood
  7. old trim
  8. old trim hood

for both the equips and icons. How would this be handled? All of them share the same name, and while at the moment the hooded ones are named (Hooded) Cape.png, there's also a precedent of naming items as "Item (Attribute 1, Attribute 2, etc). What should be done? --Jlun2 (talk) 00:48, April 8, 2015 (UTC)

Comment - What are the exact in-game names for all these versions? I'd say using those would be preferred. Aside from the 'old' variants, which I'll assume share the exact name with the new look items. "Retro" might be a better prefix for the old variants, however, as old usually refers to images for the graphical update articles and are historical.

I just checked; they appear to be exactly the same. Even on QC it shows "Dungeoneering cape"/"Dungeoneering cape (t)" multiple times. --Jlun2 (talk) 05:41, April 8, 2015 (UTC)
"X cape", "X cape (hooded)", "X cape (t)" and "X cape (t) (hooded)" then, plus "Retro ~" for the original variants. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 06:38, April 8, 2015 (UTC)
Since retro is used sometimes to describe the replica stuff from SGS, maybe it would be better to stick to calling these "old" to avoid confusion with that. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 06:52, April 9, 2015 (UTC)
Actually, I selected "Retro" specifically because of that. The retro looks might not be "from SGS" but they still are retro looks of items before their graphical update. "old" in filenames is the standard for files that can no longer be recreated and have been graphically updated. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 07:43, April 9, 2015 (UTC)

Comment - When I uploaded the trimmed new hooded skillcape images, I went with the convention of Hooded X cape because the comp and max capes are named that way, though they are named that in game. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 12:48, April 8, 2015 (UTC)
