Infobox image tabs will be incorporated into relevant A:TLA character pages in order to showcase their appearance in LoK.

Please do not edit this discussion.

Yes, I know this has been discussed before. However, we are no longer using the infoboxes we were back then. People that expressed not being in favor before argued that people using mobile devices would be affected by this change. However, now with the Portable Infoboxes, this should no longer be the case. As you can see here, the same infoboxes are being used. On mobile it looks good as well, at least in my opinion. The design I chose was a simple one, but if seen necessary, another can be used. What do you think? --Tono555 Korra-chao2 18:45, June 4, 2017 (UTC)

I objected to his back then, but I've warmed up to the idea. The built-in tabber layout is much smoother now. I'm in favor of incorporating it, provided it's only used for ATLA characters to showcase their likeness in LOK. ― Thailog 16:39, June 5, 2017 (UTC)
I'm pretty neutral on this, because for characters like Korra and Mako, it doesn't really matter much. However, for LoK characters, I would make an exception for Jinora, because let's face it, tattoos are slightly more significant than a different haircut. As for the ATLA characters who survived to see LoK, sure, go for it. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 17:32, June 5, 2017 (UTC)
The fact that the tab labels seem to be (I know they aren't, but still) incorporated into the infobox makes it look much smoother. Supported. SorcererSupreme21 Iroh Sprite OWL Outfit (Contribs | Editcount) 18:26, June 5, 2017 (UTC)
Jinora could be the LoK exception for a tabber. --Tono555 Korra-chao2 20:29, June 5, 2017 (UTC)

I can find myself agreeing with Thailog. I do not agree, however, with allowing an exception for Jinora. I don't see why she'd need one. We've always known her as a young girl (with and without tattoos). It's not like the people of ATLA who also make an appearance in TLoK, changing from being known as teenagers to suddenly being depicted as elderly people. For Jinora, her appearance with tattoos is just her last, well known appearance. No need for a tabber infobox there. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 20:33, June 5, 2017 (UTC)

I think that a possible tabber we could add could be one for Republic City. Republic City at the beginning of the show is certainly not the same Republic City we saw at the end. --Tono555 Korra-chao2 20:36, June 5, 2017 (UTC)
I agree with Lady Lostris. Jinora doesn't need a tabber for the same reason Korra doesn't either. The same applies for Republic City. If the original likeness of the city is outdated, then that image needs to be replaced via Profile Image Change Proposal. I oppose to using the tabber to show the two sides of every coin. ― Thailog 20:57, June 5, 2017 (UTC)
But my argument against Korra and Mako is a reason why Jinora should have one: there's no going back. Heck, Mako is already sporting his original haircut again in the comics, which play just a couple of weeks after the finale, but this whole tabber malarkey should play like a good before and after picture. And even though she only aged three years, there is no going back from getting her tattoos. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 21:19, June 5, 2017 (UTC)
There is indeed no going back, but her previous appearance is sufficiently documented in the body of the text. We've always operated with a "let's show a character in their most recognizable appearance". I don't see why we should deviate from that practice just because we can add tabbers to the infobox. It's useful for ATLA/TLoK appearances due to the timeskip, but I do not see the point of adding a tabber for any changing to the appearance of a character/location within the same series.
