Names of tango icon templates[edit]

I've moved profession templates to their full names, so they share a common pattern with races and disciplines. The redirect is still there, so it doesn't matter if you use {{En}} or {{Engineer}}, both give the same result.

Maybe some people prefer the professions to have the shortcut as the main template, with the full name as the redirect. If that's the case, feel free to move them back, but before doing so, I think it would be good if we discussed if races and disciplines templates should have a shortcut, too, so all tango icon templates follow the same pattern. I don't think it's "correct" to have some with shortcuts, and others without them, but well, it's not a big deal anyway.--Lon-ami 17:20, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

Profession abbreviations are a well-established shortand that carried over from the abbreviations used within Guild Wars, so there's a 7-year history behind that usage. Races and disciplines do not (at this time) have a comparable in-game shorthand schema. The discipline templates were, in fact, originally created with made-up shorthand names, but since there was no official precedent for them, they were moved to the full discipline names.
I am neither agreeing nor disagreeing with the template moves, I am merely explaining the history behind the naming conventions. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 18:03, 6 July 2012 (UTC)


How about another parameter link=n to avoid linking nowhere? – Valento msg 05:30, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
