Template talk:Gems

While I like the way this table is organized, there was a predecessor (now Template:Minerals) of this name that was a sidebar. Some pages still have the Gems template at the top, which looks REALLY bad IMO. Some pages got updated to have the Minerals template. And I've retrofitted  [Talasite] and  [Dawnstone] to have both.

There are valid reasons for each template, and different information on each. But I'm not sure how well they look together. ... And I haven't taken time yet to develop a firm preference. --Eirik Ratcatcher 17:19, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

The major problem with this template is that it is not a general "Gems" template, but a BC-only one. It should be renamed and removed from places where listing BC gems is not appropriate. --Fandyllic (talk · contr) 1:13 PM PDT 3 Aug 2007

Missing Pearls

How should we add  [Purified Jaggal Pearl] as well as the new Wrath of the Lich King equivalents? Because  [Jaggal Pearl] are used for things other than just jewelcrafting. -Howbizr (talk) 21:43, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

I've added them. Every uncommon BC gem other than Shadow Draenite is used by at least one other profession. -- Gordon Ecker (talk) 06:05, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Focus, name

Having just edited {{Minerals}}, I come back to this template... It tries to do entirely too much, in my opinion. It lists raw materials articles, and it lists cut gem type articles. Other than both having to deal vaguely with gems, I don't see a particular reason that any one page would want to have both on it. And combine this with the Minerals template on the same page?

This could be turned into, IMO, a couple or three good templates that could coexist with Minerals. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:36, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

New version

Please see {{Gems/dev}}. Edit as you see fit. This proposal is to replace both the current {{gems}} as well as {{minerals}}. The ideas is based off of {{mountfooter}}. /chomp‎ Howbizr(t·c) 3:25 PM, 28 Aug 2009 (EDT)

Cleaning up

Decided to change the template to single-line for the gems instead of one line per expansion in order to reduce the size. Tell me what you think, especially if you think it's wrong. --g0urra[T҂C] 07:07, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Hmm I don't have a strong opinion about this either way, but to me it looks fine. As I understand it, all gems will now be prismatic. The new ones that I initially put under their respective colours aswell. Gems like the  [Furystone] is ofcourse still red in actual colouration, but it will count as a prismatic gem. And while on the topic of gems.. Do you remember when cut gems were made to stack to 20? I can't quite recall when that happened. PeterWind (talk) 23:54, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
