Missing Aon images

  • There are images of several Aons in the tenth anniversary glossary that aren't on the wiki. Could somebody please create images for these Aons? (I don't know how to do it): Aon Ake, Aon Are, Aon Dii, Aon Eda, Aon Ehe, Aon Eno, Aon Kae, Aon Toa. Thank you! TomPN (talk) 03:33, 23 March 2017 (MST)
Just adding that Aon Soo is missing Haelbarde (talk)

Reorganize Aon list

As it's currently laid out, the list of Aons is a bit unwieldy; the table of contents encroaches on the body of the article and the mix of images, quotes, section titles, and normal text makes it oddly spaced and difficult to read. On top of this, most individual Aons don't really have enough information associated with them to merit a full section anyway. I propose reformatting the page so that notable Aons (e.g. ones that are significant to the story or have long descriptions -- Aon, Ashe, maybe Daa, Ene, Nae, Omi, Rao, Reo, Shao, Tae, and Tia is my extremely rough list) get their own sections, followed by a table (with columns for name, picture, meaning, examples, and extra info) for the rest. I can make the edits myself, but I didn't want my first edit on the wiki to be a complete overhaul of a major page without at least getting some feedback first. Thoughts?

Welcome to the Coppermind! I've had similar thoughts about this article before, but never came up with a method I liked for reorganizing it. The Coppermind's Keepers have been talking, and we like your idea, but we'd like a bit more time to think about some of the details. We can sometimes forget to come back to discussions that we table, so if you don't hear more in a week or so, feel free to give us a nudge either here or in the Coppermind editors Discord (though we're pretty excited about this, so we should be good about staying on top of it). If you have any further thoughts, like how a table should be formatted, feel free to chime in on that as well (or if you have ideas about anything else, of course). In the meantime, we'd also like to say thank you for pointing out this issue and for looking for feedback before making sweeping changes. Happy editing!

Okay, so we really like this idea. The one sort of tweak is that we'd like to put all Aons in the table, so that it's sort of like a complete dictionary. So, any Aons with too much detail to all fit in the table would get both a table entry and a section or something elsewhere with additional information. The one other concern we have is getting the table to look right. To that end, I've thrown together some markups here. I'm not exactly a design expert though, and I'm sure you probably have some ideas too, so we'd love to hear your thoughts. Once that's settled, I think you'll be good to go ahead and do this.
