Lost Minis Wiki talk:Rules and Conventions
From Lost Minis Wiki
I would like to propose another convention for naming pic files: If the same figure (and it has to be exact, with no variations) was released in more than one blister, box, or set, then, once known, the file name should reflect the lowest product code, be it ordered numerically or alphabetically. This way, the same pic will show in all galleries to which that figure belongs and there is a better likelihood that the pic will be attached via name to reflect its earliest release. If the editor cannot reach the original uploader, then he can reupload, provided all the information, including the originating uploader's credit is maintained with the new file. Or is there a way to just change the file name and edit in the new code for it without having to reupload? If so, is that only restricted to management (and I can see why it should be), or can anyone do it?
I fully agree with the notion that a single image name should be used across the different places that exact same figure appears. This is already the practice in use in a lot of places on the wiki, though it was never articulated on the conventions page, and some contributers probably were not aware of the practice.

I don't think this is the right approach (if I'm understanding you correctly). I think the file name should reflect the original release. For example, in the Nightmares range, the preferred names should be from the CoC and Fantasy Lords sets since they predate the Nightmares range itself. Ideally, the only figures with the nightmares nm names would those that were unique to the nightmares range.

So for Tomb Of Spells, it would be Wizzaards and Warriors numbers, right? -- SGR

How does one comment-out text, images, etc?
- As far as I know there is no way to comment out parts of pages like you mean. Just delete it, the changes are left in the page history if you want to 'find' them again later.
