Forums: Index Watercooler Image Issues for Unseen Characters

Right, so I was looking at the Wanted Files, and some of them originate from characters that are never seen in game. Before Wikia jumped the shark and changed every infobox in their webspace to be "mobile-friendly", we had the Character Infobox set so that you could type text in the image space. So when a character was never seen in-game, we would have the text "<NAME> is never seen in-game." in place of an image (i.e. Zelda's Guard and Santa).

Unfortunately, now everything has to be an image, so it tries to convert that text into a file name, and it shows up as a wanted file. So we either need to find a way to change the infobox to nullify this (which I'll admit I don't know how to approach at the moment) or we come up with a catch-all phrase, make that into an image, and replace each instance with this new image.

Hopefully that makes sense. —Ceiling Master 23:45, April 20, 2017 (UTC)

One other option is to use a stock image of a question mark and continue to use "<NAME> is never seen in-game" as the caption. Jedimasterlink (talk) 01:17, April 21, 2017 (UTC)
A stock image doesn't seem that bad as a temporary solution. Maybe in the future we could use specific images for characters, locations, items, events, etc. But for now, I'm fine with Jedi's idea. Green Rupee 06:41, April 22, 2017 (UTC)
It is a good idea, we can also upload a "pseudo image", meaning an image file being a text on a white or transparent background indicated that "never seen in-game" and use it as a maintenance image. WiseAdventurer (talk) 21:56, April 22, 2017 (UTC)

Bump

I like the question mark idea and changing the caption to the previous image text. So... for the sake of aesthetics, can we find a question mark in the Zelda font? You know, with the... whatever they are, the little diamonds and the dot and stuff? I think that'd be a nice touch. —Ceiling Master 16:24, April 28, 2017 (UTC)
