Template talk:Game3

I created this template, but now, I don't think it's needed. If we edit {{game}} so that it can have alternate text after the link, we can phase out this template (like we're doing with {{p2}} and {{m2}}). The coding of {{game}} should be like this:

[[Pokémon {{{1}}} Version{{{2|}}}|{{{3|Pokémon {{{1}}}}}}]]

Who agrees with me? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 16:12, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Does seem as though it'd work better...however, an issue I can see is that you have to have clause 2 in for clause 3 to work. Cipher (Talk) 16:18, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
Huh? I don't get what you mean by the clause part. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 16:19, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
(By "clause 2", I mean {{{2|}}} - same applies for clause 3 and {{{3|}}}.)
Hang on, ignore me. Just tested this and it works fine. However, if you want to use {{{3|}}} but you don't want to use {{{2|}}}, you'll have to use a double-pipe. Example:
{{game|Crystal||Gold and Silver counterpart}}
This'll come up with [[Pokémon Crystal Version|Gold and Silver counterpart]]. Using only a single pipe would give you [[Pokémon Crystal VersionGold and Silver counterpart|Pokémon Crystal]].
So, yeah, works fine. Wait for some other comments before implementing it, though. Cipher (Talk) 16:31, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm gonna try phasing this out, now that {{game}} has alt-text capability. But, as Cipher mentioned, typing in {{game3|Emerald|green}} with this template would require an additional vertical pipe in the other one: {{game|Emerald||green}}. As such, I want to get a group opinion on this change before going ahead with it. --((Marton imos)) 03:27, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Double pipe will get extremely confusing for people trying to use it. I highly advise that it isn't done. MaverickNate 03:37, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Heavy sigh... fine. --((Marton imos)) 04:07, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
