Expanding the template[edit]

I'm not very good with templates, otherwise I'd do this myself, but do you guys think this template could do with some expansion? Like, maybe listing the equipment that can be forged from each item. The main reason I'm suggesting this is because I added all but the Rusty Items to the Consumable Item template: We can't exactly get rid of this template (since it still has the rusty items on it), but at the same time it's mostly obsolete. Anyways, since there's not much I can do, I'll leave it up to someone else to either expand it or not. HungryPaperweight 10:33, 4 February 2011 (CST)

Forgeable equipment seems to really overstuff this template, whereas it looks like a good idea to keep the forgeable items in the new version of the consumable items template. Erik the Appreciator 12:33, 4 February 2011 (CST)
Hmmm, perhaps, considering how many forgeable items are in TLA. Although a template for DD-forgeable equipment might work. Maybe. The World's Hungriest Paperweight 21:37, 8 February 2011 (CST)
Okay, I'll admit, at this point I'm just brainstorming (out loud), but now I have an idea that might actually work: Separate templates for each forgeable item, including rusty items. Each individual template would be relatively small, the largest ones being those items which appear in both TLA and DD. Either way, it would give us a way to link all the equipment forged from the same item without being unwieldly. The World's Hungriest Paperweight 10:12, 9 February 2011 (CST)
Two weeks and no comments? Maybe this was forgotten about. Either way, here's an example of what I'm talking about. If anyone objects, say so before too long, otherwise I'll take your silence as approval. The World's Hungriest Paperweight 11:02, 23 February 2011 (CST)

Well, nobody objected, so I went ahead and made them (and am working on a couple more templates). Unfortunately, this now raises the question of whether we need to keep this template or not. As far as I can tell, the only purpose it serves is grouping the consumable forgeable items with the rusty items, which is something I don't really want to get rid of. Beyond that, though, I don't see any reason we shouldn't just delete it outright. The World's Hungriest Paperweight 13:13, 9 March 2011 (CST)
