Hello.

I've noticed that the pet file names is a big mess. (See here.)

So, I'm suggesting we follow these guidelines:

  • For a pet that has a lot of colours:
  • File:Pet (colour) icon.png for inventory
  • File:Pet (colour).png for detailed images (when they are out)
  • File:Pet (colour) chathead.png for chathead images
  • For multiple stages of the same animal:
  • File:Pet (stage) icon.png for inventory
  • File:Pet (stage).png for detailed images (when they are out)
  • File:Pet (stage) chathead.png for chathead images
  • For both:
  • File:Pet (colour, stage) icon.png for inventory
  • File:Pet (colour, stage).png for detailed images (when they are out)
  • File:Pet (colour, stage) chathead.png for chathead images

I can move them with my bot if this passes. — Jr Mime (talk) 17:02, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

Comment - I think "detail" sounds a bit quirky. What about File:Pet (stage/colour/stage and colour).png for them walking (what you called detail) and File:Pet (stage/etc.) inventory.png or File:Pet (...) icon.png for the inventory icons?

I like icon better. Afterall, pets are not items! — Jr Mime (talk) 18:12, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

You know what I mean lol. — Jr Mime (talk) 23:48, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

Comment - I'm glad someone brought this up, the pet image names are a mess. What do you mean by the "stage of the pet" though? Don't most pets have names in-game which already distinguish this (e.g. baby giant crab/giant crab)? Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 17:28, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

Indeed, a lot of pets are called "Baby" when young and are named without the prefix when grown up. Shouldn't we name them:
  • For a pet that has a lot of colours:
    • File:In-game name (colour) icon.png for inventory
    • File:In-game name (colour).png for detailed images (when they are out)
    • File:In-game name (colour) chathead.png for chathead images
Rather than stage? Unless there's no distinguished name between the different stages?
However, there are pets that have similar names to other ingame creatures. I.e. Baby dragons Dragon dagger.png AmoVos 17:53, November 12, 2013 (UTC)
Blue dragons has 2 stages, hatchling and normal but a lot of colours. I was thinking to name them the way I said above so it would be cleaned in the categories, they would be all in the same place like it is now, but cleaned names. — Jr Mime (talk) 21:03, November 12, 2013 (UTC)
I understand, but they are called "Hatchling dragon" and "Baby dragon" in-game, not both the same. It would make sense to use those 2 names rather than "Dragon (blue, hatchling)" and "Dragon (blue, baby)" or "Baby dragon (blue, hatchling)" and "Baby dragon (blue)". That is more inconsistent than using the in-game names. Dragon dagger.png AmoVos 12:41, November 13, 2013 (UTC)
I guess IGN is better. Anyway, just saw, all the pets have their own category (like dragons in Pet dragon images), so they would be all organized there anyway. — Jr Mime (talk) 22:36, November 13, 2013 (UTC)

Support - I have tried to make a few of the pets' image names more consistent, but it requires more work, and all of them need to be reorganised. Dragon dagger.png AmoVos 17:47, November 12, 2013 (UTC)
