I don't think we should force an icon onto this, just because there's no icon in-game. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 20:51, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Yes, this misc icon is being used everywhere, for example, I think the miscellaneous effects for skills should have their own icons (using image parameter), but people are leaving the misc icon everywhere (example: this instead of this). – Valento msg 20:57, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
I basiclly agree with this. I just wanted to create a template that the Magic find reference will be handeled constant through the whole wiki. I am totally fine with removing the Icon I just borrowed it from the Template:Accessory infobox/benefits, in which I also included this template now. And if the designers change their mind and this effect gets an icon, we will just have to update this page, not thousands of wiki pages. - Yandere Talk to me... 20:59, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Just to make this clear I only did this for Magic find because it is such a common item benefit. - Yandere Talk to me... 21:18, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
This discussion appears defunct, but for what it's worth, I found that having an icon for magic find was quite useful in constructing tables like these and this without them getting too wide for my monitor, and I would've been disappointed if we didn't have one. If we can make up unofficial terms like activator to help organize the wiki, I think we can make up unofficial icons, too. --Felbryn 19:06, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
The problem is that this is the "miscellaneous effect" icon used in skill facts. If it's okay to make up an icon, let's at least make up a unique one. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 19:17, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Fine by me (as long as I don't have to draw it). Perhaps a treasure chest or a magnifying glass would be appropriate. --Felbryn 20:18, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

It would ideally be in the same visual style as the official attribute icons, but maybe that's asking too much. --Felbryn 00:41, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
We use Alfa-R to make all our tangos don't we?--Relyk ~ talk > 00:48, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
