Coat of arms[edit]

consensus image 2009 – 21 March 2018

There has been a consensus for the last nine years (since 2009) to have a narrow coat of arms image in the right side of the template. (View a recent example of the template with the original image in this version.) On March 22, 2018, User:195.56.247.82 changed the image to one with a wider aspect ratio (including oak clusters left and right), and increased the size from 80 to 150px. (View that version here.)

Two attempts to restore the long-standing consensus image were both reverted by IP 195. I've restored the image again, and requested that per WP:BRD, the consensus image should remain until a new consensus is determined, to be worked out here on the Talk page.

My view is that we should either stick to the original, tall-and-skinny image, or have no image at all; the new image is nearly double the size of the old one (despite the odd edit summary claiming it isn't), and it takes up a lot of width in this growing template, leaving less room for the links and stretching the template longer in the vertical direction.

My preference would be for no image, as I view nav templates as being densely populated by links for navigation; as this template has a growing number of links, my feeling is that the wider image takes up too much screen real estate, reducing the amount of row width available for nav links, and leaving a wide, empty column on the right, where the image is. But if we are going to have an image, then at least have a skinny image, sort of like the one that was there before, so that it leaves plenty of room for the links, which is what a nav template is all about.

Agree, it looks better with the smaller image. I like it with the image, instead of without it. Funandtrvl (talk) 22:50, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
