This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Wowpedia:List of race icons article.

"I" iconRequests for new icons or propose changes to existing icons should be placed here. These requests are handled by the Icon team.

When making a request, please bear in mind the usefulness of the icon, in other words will it be used? Generally NYI races/creatures should not be requested as making the icon does require some sort of image to work off of. Creatures of similar nature or different skin/fur colors should also not be requested, for example we don't need a icon for polar bears, black bears, and brown bears.

Addendum: Don't request icons of content that hasn't gone live yet.

Completed requests

Dragonmaw Orcs

There's a problem for the Dragonmaw icons, they were merged with the gray orcs by Coobra 2 years ago. It would be separated to be able to do something with it.Klakmuf 20:36, 14 March 2017

GIF file format

Every icon should follow this consistency. The Blood Elf male and female should be converted to gif format just like the others instead of using the gif version as a redirect. — SurafbrovWowpedia's wiki representative T / C 04:47, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

This was decided against in Discord. Ignore this. — SurafbrovWowpedia's wiki representative T / C 17:48, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
