Template talk:IAbility

Is there really any need for making this template pluralized? You can't have more than one of the same ability at any given time, so none of the recipes for higher Incarnate abilites require more than one of the same ability.  FW (talk · contrib 05:48, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Probably not. I don't think we'd really given it that much thought when the template was originally created, though.--Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 05:53, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
I went ahead and removed the quantity parameter from the template and the pluralization. (And, as it turns out, there was no IAbilityPlural template to remove.)--Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 05:57, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
The DPL template for this {{IAbility.dpl}} is still coded to require the second parameter, specifying how many. Is there any reason we can't remove that logic? Since many template calls don't provide the count, it's breaking DPL. -- Sekoia 20:01, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
I am all for removing the extra parameter, due to the reasons FW said to begin with. You can't have more than one at a time, so there's no need to require a number. It will always be 1. ~ AGGE talk/cons 20:13, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
I blanked the DPL template. We could technically just get rid of it since there's no information it needs to pass along, but that would require tracking down all the places that use it and tweaking their DPL calls to no longer try to use it... so I just blanked it. (So the extra parameter is no longer needed or used.) -- Sekoia 09:12, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
