Hello, i'd like to propose a change to Infoboxes. Instead of having a field called "Members only" (or a variant of that name), how about we get a small icon displaying that, right next to the page's name? I'm attaching an example of how this would display:

In the example, the page is for a members-only place. F2P content would have a different, corresponding icon. IMO this would be a cleaner, more visually appealing way of displaying such info. The PT wiki already uses it, so i reckon coding from scratch would not be necessary. Crowborn (talk) 22:14, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

Oppose - As a replacement for the text. I feel like using the symbol can be good as an "in-addition-to" thing, but not as a total replacement. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 23:21, September 27, 2016 (UTC)

Comment - Why not both? I don't believe new players would immediately be aware that the symbol means "Member's only". --Jlun2 (talk) 00:05, September 28, 2016 (UTC)

Oppose - Text is preferable. If you want to have an icon in addition to text, meh, whatever. --Saftzie (talk) 06:15, September 28, 2016 (UTC)

Comment - I agree with the rest, why not both? :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:41, September 30, 2016 (UTC)

No, tired of icons - All the little pics are just irritating. Words rule. Degenret01 (talk) 16:43, September 30, 2016 (UTC)

Comment - I see everyone's point and i agree that having both instead of just icons could avoid confusion. I still think the icon, even if by the text field's side, would be a nice addition. Crowborn (talk) 16:47, September 30, 2016 (UTC)

Both because it's a nice addition, yet not a complete replacement User talk:ThePsionic.png: RS3 Inventory image of User talk:ThePsionic ThePsionic Special:Contributions/ThePsionic.png: RS3 Inventory image of Special:Contributions/ThePsionic 17:24, September 30, 2016 (UTC)

Oppose - per Degen. cqm 21:08, 30 Sep 2016 (UTC) (UTC)

Oppose - I like it in theory, but even I think that we have to draw a line somewhere. --dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 16:42, October 4, 2016 (UTC)


Here you go. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 13:39, October 8, 2016 (UTC)

Closed - The icon will not replace text. However, it may be added as an addition to text. --LiquidTalk 18:16, October 10, 2016 (UTC)
