Vyre corpse inventory images

This discussion concerns the undeletion of File:Vyre corpse 2.png, File:Vyre corpse 4.png and File:Vyre corpse 5.png.

So, once upon a time, vyre corpses came in a lot of different variants. Then, in 2013, vyrewatch had their drops changed so that only one of the corpse types was dropped. A few days after that happened, all inventory images except one (File:Vyre corpse 3.png, presumably the one used on the still-obtainable vyre corpses) were removed from the infobox on the vyre corpse page. After this, image 3 was still used on the item page, and File:Vyre corpse 1.png managed to escape deletion because every page that didn't care what vyre corpse variant was mentioned would presumably just link to the first one and nobody cared to update those. But images 2, 4 and 5 were left unused, and were deleted a few days later.

But, as they are technically distinct items, which technically do still exist, shouldn't the discontinued corpse variants also be documented on the wiki, inventory images and all? Maybe on the vyre corpse page, maybe on a separate page for the historical vyre corpses (I'd prefer the latter but don't care that much one way or the other).

If the decision is made that these images shouldn't be restored, that would imply one of the existing images (whichever one isn't the icon of the obtainable corpses, presumably File:Vyre corpse 1.png) should be deleted.

UNdelete - All the other variants still exist but are converted into the same variant when picked up. Just put them in a gallery on thet page or something. Adventurer's log Wahisietel (Talk) Quest map icon.png 02:12, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

Support historical page - If the images were to be undeleted there wouldn't be any reasonable place to put them. You can't put them in the infobox because that would imply they still exist and can be obtained. I think creating an extra page - Vyre corpe (historical) - with the variants of the corpses in the infobox may be a good idea. The content on the page should be very little, linking to the main article. This is also beneficial for any old, removed monsters that have the old vyre corpses on their drop table (unsure if any).

As for vyre corpse 1, all references of the image should be changed to 3 imo, because that is the image used on the main vyre corpse page.

Closed - Images will be undeleted. I'm going to stick them on Vyre corpses in a gallery at the bottom. I can't think of anything interesting to write on a historical page but if someone is more creative than me and wants to do it, go ahead. --LiquidTalk 21:34, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
