Re: Mandatory image use for {{tl|Infobox vehicle}}: New discussion
Hey, thanks for checking up on me. Yeah, I've been kinda busy lately what with my preparations for university and the fact that I'm currently on vacation out of the country. Since I devote a lot of my free time to my social life, writing, music, and a few other stuff, I guess I haven't been particularly active. Also the fact that I'm an administrator on a fanon wiki means I have to divide my online time well, and it happens that there doesn't seem to be a whole lot I can find to contribute here, whereas I always have something new to write there. Of course, if I'm needed for administrative reasons here at any time, I always check in provided I receive an email notification. Still, I think this wiki has enough admins to deal with any issues that may come up, and even then, the community here is in a lot better condition than the other one I'm administrating (non-canon respecting fanfiction writers with the spelling ability of first graders, ugh), so if you think I'm not needed, you can remove me from the administrators group. I just come over here occasionally when I think of something to add to an article, and that's not very frequent anymore as I don't really play GTA now, and most of my association with it now is ideas for future GTA stories. Anyway, thanks again for checking in and let me know what your decision is. <span style="font-family:calibri; text-shadow: black 0 4px 4px; color:080808;">[[User:Silver Infernus|Silver Infernus]] <sup>[[User talk:Silver Infernus|talk]]</sup></span> 05:00, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
== Re: Mandatory image use for {{tl|Infobox vehicle}} ==
I'm not particularly fond of having this infobox require an image link, as there are special cases where a vehicle article encompass vastly different iterations of vehicles that use the same name; the original infobox code was tailored to make available the option of not having a lead image, leaving galleries and thumbnails outside the infobox to provide illustrations instead.
By making images mandatory in the infobox, people are being forced to choose only one rendition; but it's come to the point when a recurring vehicle may have a relatively rich history in the series that it's not satisfactory enough to sum up its existence in just one image. I'm sure you're heard me mentioned about this before, but bias favoring specific games or generations isn't acceptable. - [[User:ZS|ZS]] ([[User talk:ZS|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/ZS|edits]]) 12:43, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
