Removal of See also[edit]

See also linking to other Living World Season 3 map currencies got removed with the reason "→‎See also: See also? Nah, just see the token nav, same list heh". My justification to keep the See Also section: The token nav gives just an overview of all tokens, but See Also has a direct connection via being a map currency introduced in LWS3. For me, and hopefully for others too, it's nice to have a quick link to the other related tokens, for example while purchasing ascended trinkets, not every token can purchase all three types; not to search them in the nav list. But if we keep them removed, then please also remove them from the other LWS3 tokens:

Agreed. —Ventriloquist 12:20, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
If the token nav was changed so that the LWS3 tokens had their own section/were more visibly their own group, would that help? - Doodleplex 16:26, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
In my experience, more people check out the 'see also' sections (bonus points if they have icons), than a nav full of seemingly unrelated items. Worth a shot, though. —Ventriloquist 17:10, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
Since it looks like somebody's using the GW2 Sandbox, I plopped my idea for the token nav on top of my own sandbox page here. Broken up by where(or "when" in the case of seasonal) a token is usable, ie tokens that can only be used in HoT is one section, and put in icons for the permenant tokens so it would seem less like a box of "blah blah who cares" (historical stuff didn't play nice with icons and is probably less likely to be looked at so I cut my losses there). Lemme know if it work or not for you guys. - Doodleplex 19:18, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
In my opinion, I would still keep the See also section even with a new token nav, just because there's a relation between these tokens. But nevertheless your sandbox ideas look great (prefering the one without HR lines). If you want to keep the different game release sections, thats fine. Or you go even further and add a Black Lion Weapons section for the tickets and a Competitive section for Memory of Battle and Shard of Glory (This question just came into my mind: Is the WvW Skirmish Chest a token, 2-3 patches ago it was changed to a vendor currency and an item opening a vendor on use). Minor remark: the festivals could be a bold link, like Living World Season 1. --Tolkyria (talk) 20:27, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
