Gilgamesh: Enough expository banter!
This talk page is used for discussing improvements to the page "Thancred Waters". It is not the place for general discussion or sharing stories about the topic of this article.

The square image shown for this article that I saw when I scrolled all the way down a page featured a major spoiler for A Realm Reborn, clear as day.

Is there any way for this not to appear there?

If you're on mobile there's no way to avoid those kind of images unfortunately. If you're on PC you should be able to hide sections with major spoilers by clicking the "hide" option on the spoiler template...if there was a spoiler template there. Okay, been wondering now, are we axing spoiler templates because I've been seeing a lot of articles having them removed? I know they're not functional on mobile, so if we are, not surprised. >~> --Miphares (talk) 15:14, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

I believe the spoiler tag is indeed not being recommended anymore. It's the lede and gameplay sections that are to be left spoiler free. Better off clicking on the table of contents rather than scrolling if one still wants to look at a page but avoid the story section.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 15:34, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
To be clear, I saw the spoiler image at the bottom of another page entirely. The LNC/DRG weapon page, I think. I hit the bottom and among the recommended articles was Thancred's and the image was the Ascian one. My intent here is simply to help not spoil A Realm Reborn for new players. I hope that clears it up.

If it's in the recommended article thumbnail, I'm not sure anything can be done about that. Do Fandom recommended articles often pick the first thumbed image for those? Or is it completely random? I'm not an expert on this tbh. --Miphares (talk) 16:50, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

If it's in the "read more" algorithm then that is a terrible pic for that! I think it does just use the first pic that is not from the infobox.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 17:11, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

Okay, so it is possibly the former then. Thank you for letting me know that, thanks also for fixing the image placement then. --Miphares (talk) 17:20, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
