These are the rewards for “Diplomatic Orders”. This is one of the things I had in mind when I envisioned the {{coloricon}} template. I wanted to show pretty icons for mission rewards and vendor wares. However, {{missioninfo}} doesn't like it when I try to use a table for the "plus" parameter. Passing the icons without a table works but I like the way the table formats better.

As a side note, {{coloricon}} also works for bridge officer candidates that are "rewards" for leveling up.

Hmmm. We're planning on eventually having the {{item}} link template link to sub-pages... For example, {{item|Phaser Beam Array|Mk IX|[Cap]x2}} would link to the page "Phaser Beam Array/Mk IX/[Cap]x2", which would have information for that specific item, as well as a link to the general "Phaser Beam Array" page that covers information on all versions of that item.
What we could eventually do is have a half-sized icon that would link to the item sub-page, so that when the user moused-over any of the item reward icons, they'd see what the item's name was. Or, have the half-sized icons show up next to the name of each item. THat's always a possibility.
Take a look at this and tell me what you think: User:TerranRich/Coloricon Size Test. I'll try it out in a {{missioninfo}} test box soon. –TerranRich (ETC) @ 09:09, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
