Predecessor and Successor

Hello Potsk,

I've seen you added a predecessor and successor module on the infobox for characters. I'm not opposed to it but I'm not a fan of the "eventually X succeed Y" stuff. I think we should use these modules for direct successions only. Have a good day. --Thomaerys Velaryon (talk) 12:53, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

It is the most effective use for navigational purposes. --Potsk (talk) 12:55, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
I absolutely agree with Thomaerys. It is confusing and "eventual predecessor" does not make any sense in my opinion. There are navigation boxes at the bottom of the page for navigational purposes. It is better to have a discussion about things like that with other editors before changing it on your own. The Wondering Wolf (talk) 13:09, 27 December 2020 (UTC)
Alright then, go ahead and remove them. --Potsk (talk) 06:53, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

Images in infobox

Potsk please see the the post on the use of images from shows https://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/34958-the-asoiaf-wiki-thread/&do=findComment&comment=8726606 In short the primary image should be book accurate show images are to be used only for a show subsection. This is why i removed the Mysaria image --Direpupy(talk)


Dowager queen

I do not agree that the title dowager queen makes the title queen in the infobox superfluous the are not the same title and a dowager has different rights and responsibilities, at least in the real world. Since they are two separate titles the should in my opinion be listed separately. -- Direpupy(talk)

Its a sum up of the titels used and held by the person which should be comprehensive, so omitting a title makes the list pointless. If we follow your reasoning then any prince of dragonstone who became king should also not have prince of dragonstone among there titels, but we list that for every single one of them because its a list of all titels held and used. -- Direpupy(talk)
