Image Importing[]

Alderaan and Mopster pointed the finger to you about importing images into the wiki, I have all of the UI Pieces Exported, and Split up. From the looks of things FLS reuse a lot of images, would you like me to upload all the images as a name relative from where they came from then create the relevant image template ((like the doubloon one Doubloon(s) I did --MafooUK 20:23, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

see Template:Bronze Round Shot as a example of one of them --MafooUK 20:33, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
Why are you using a template to show an image instead of [[Image:]]? --Mopster 20:41, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
There's about 900 icons (more now, some icons may be out of date now) but /most/ are actually different, some just slightly so. Looking into seeing if there's any easier method of batch uploading the 900 icons. --AdTheRat 21:11, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
There are quite a few icons that overlap, The reason for using a Template to control the image is it allows standardization out to the user for choosing a image with the template being able to govern what image to use at what size, so for example i can upload a 10px, 30px and 100px version of the free trader class symbol, and if someone wants it at a particular size they do {{freetrader|55px}} it is then up to the template to decide the best image to provide back, this means if a better version of the image comes out every place it is used will get the most relevant version without having to change the image link e.g. [[Image:freetrader_20px.jpg|55px]] to [[Image:freetrader_55px.jpg|55px]].I am happy to work through each image creating the relevant template as I already have all the standard UI components split into there individual images MafooUK 21:21, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm looking at ways to automate the upload using the bot. However it doesn't seem posible through the api so I might have to try and go through the wiki html pages. If wikia has a better way then obviously they should do it. And lets continue the discussion about image templates at Category talk:Image templates lest AdTheRat sees each and every one of our replies on that topic as a personal message :) --Lord Alderaan 10:28, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
