What to do with the "Franchise Template"?
Hello everyone, this is HappyIphisAria. I have a question regarding the "Franchise" template here:
There are two options: (1) keep and edit it, or (2) remove it from all pages.
Cons: since recent revisions to the ICO, TLG, and SOTC "Walkthrough" templates, the "Franchise" template is somewhat redundant. Also, it is comparatively bukly (once expanded) compared to the individual Walkthrough templates. These are the reasons for removing it.
Pros: Unlike the Walkthroughs, the Franchise shows all three games, regardless of the page being viewed. By comparison, the Walkthrough templates would only be used on their respective pages (i.e. TLG template would never be found in an ICO or SOTC page). So having the Franchise template would give easier access to the other game titles. This is the reason for keeping it.
Here is what the Walkthrough templates look like:
