Note for future updates

I purposely preset most everything you'd find in a NAV so that just about anyone could edit it. Happy navigating! User M-NINJA Signature.png 02:09, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

The Birds

Do we let them in the Replay Update Nav, or here? Honestly, it'd make more sence if the doves were in this nav. GianAwesome 02:10, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Either they go here or they don't go in a NAV. As I said before, I preset the NAV with everything we would need, including an "Other" section. We get enough positive votes, we just drop doves in there. Pictogram plus.png Consider this my vote User M-NINJA Signature.png 02:19, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Should we change the icon?

The icon used for the Über Update, the Medic icon, is currently the same one used for the Gold Rush Update. I say we change it, but to what, I don't know. What do you guys think? Shane Alvarado 03:18, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Looks like it's been changed, so nevermind. Shane Alvarado 22:50, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Hats

Should we go with Unamed Heavy Hat and Unamed Spy hat? Or just not put them in? The name submitted for the Heavy hat was the Capone Capper, and I don't have it handy, but it's probably not hard to look up the name for the Spy hat. However, Valve did change the name of the rose, so it's hard to tell where they're going with names Balladofwindfishes 12:18, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Weapons and classes

Currently, there's no way to tell who weapon belongs to who in this layout without clicking on each weapons. I've added class icons next to each one, but it was promptly reverted because "It looked ugly", which IMO is not a good enough explanation, since I'm going for practicability and not looks. But that's just me, anyway.
I think it's rather obvious there needs some way to differentiate which weapon belongs to who, but I'm not sure how it should be done. -- Mistah Phoenix (talk) 12:53, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Well I based this off of the Australian Christmas NAV. Allow me to pull it up as a visual representation.

If you notice, the weapons are just listed as weapons and the weapons that were involved in any sort of class pack were in bold. Also if you notice we always list items in the order of class; being from Scout to Spy. Adding something to say: "This is a scout weapon" is not necessary for an update NAV.

I see. Despite the "sort by class order" thing, I still believe some sort of what-belongs-to-who info should be added: the order helps, but you don't know when it ends or when it starts, which only gives you a general idea and still forces one to check every weapon manually for that info. -- Mistah Phoenix (talk) 13:31, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
This is what I had in mind, Smashman, thanks -- Mistah Phoenix (talk) 13:48, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

That takes too much space. What's wrong with the tried and true, mate? It works. maggosh 04:17, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Soldier items sets

I swapped the order of the item sets for Soldier in the nav box to fix the links to the main item sets article, because that's how they're ordered in the article and how they're ordered on the Über Update page itself. coreycubed / talk 06:48, 22 July 2011 (PDT)
