Forum:Standardize naming of quest reward images
Our image policy sets the guidelines for naming most images that are commonly reoccuring throughout the wiki, such as detailed item images, inventory images, etc. However, quest reward "scroll" images are not. Admittedly, the image naming policy is relatively ignored amongst newer community members, but having a simple standard would allow us to at least move incorrectly named files to consistent naming.
I propose improve RS:IMG#NAME to include either Quest Name reward.png or Quest Name completed.png as the preference for these reward "scrolls" (which don't look like scrolls anymore, so that doesn't really fit). It's a tiny change, but would help maintain consistency amongst these images.
To give an example of how things are now:
- Catapult Construction: File:Catapult Construction reward.png
- Biohazard: File:Biohazard reward.png
- Cook's Assistant: :File:Cook's Assistant reward scroll.png
- Blood Runs Deep: File:Blood Runs Deep reward.png
- Throne of Miscellania: File:Throne of Miscellania reward.png
- Rune Mysteries: File:Rune Mysteries reward (historical).png
- Lunar Diplomacy: File:Lunar Diplomacy reward.png
If this proposal passes, it'd be best to let the shiny new image renamer bot handle the renaming.
Support Quest Name reward.png - I don't think we should have both as options because they're so different, and that that would not solve the problem very much at all. Matt (t) 00:47, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
- To rephrase, I don't think we should use both, I was offering two possible suggestions that could be chosen by here, as we already are. I personally prefer Quest Name reward.png myself. Hofmic Talk 02:27, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
Support Quest name reward - as that is what I have been moving the ones with history to before making merge requests, if not already named that.02:24, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
- Btw, the first example has already been merged, to File:Catapult Construction reward.png. 02:30, February 18, 2012 (UTC)

Comment - I would just like to point out, that out of 219 images in the linked category, ~130 are named "Quest Name reward", 16 are "Quest Name rewards", 40 are "Quest Name reward scroll" (a name which no longer fits) and 11 are "Quest Name complete(d)", with various approaches to capitalisation, initialisation and application of the space bar. The others are named various things like "Finished" or "Award", putting "reward" or "complete" at the start or, in a few cases, just "Quest Name". I think these numbers should be enough to show what the usual naming practice for these images is.16:19, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
- Fair enough. Though Quest Name reward.png is shorter, equally fitting, and would need less moving, as per Ansela's statistics. Hofmic Talk 06:22, February 19, 2012 (UTC)
Support Quest name reward - It's more accurate than completed, as this is showing the reward whilst completed could also mean being at the location where the quest finishes22:44, February 19, 2012 (UTC)
Support Quest name reward - Would organise things a little better. But shouldn't these sort of things be covered by the filename standardisation project/policy? Do we really need YGs for each "category" of unstandardised images we find? Chicken7 >talk 02:47, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
- What project is this? We do have a section in the image policy about names for images, but quest reward "scrolls" aren't included in it, which is what this page is about; choosing one name we can use for all of the images. Hofmic Talk 03:15, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
- Filenames are included as part of RS:IMP. Being a policy, which sets wiki-wide standards for file names, consensus is need to modify it. So yes, we do need a thread for each addition. Also, the 'project' you refer to is non-existent. (WikiGuilds died if that's what you're talking about, and there was no filenames guild anyway) Matt (t) 21:35, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
