Feedback requested on change to Template:Guild link

Notey.png Feedback required

Hello Godwikians!

I have made a small experimental improvement to how {{Guild link}} works.

If you add |stats=yes to your {{Guild link}}, it will generate with an icon that's a neat and tidy link to your guild stats. In other words:

{{Guild link|Aeter|stats=yes}}

will make:

⚜️ Aeter 📈

I'd love it if you gave it a try and let me know what you think! In particular:

  • Is the spacing bad/ugly/difficult on touch screens?
  • Is the emoji too large, or should it be replaced with a simpler text link (á la {{God|extended=yes}}), i.e. GodDjonni (U • C • T) 
  • Is it just not a good idea?

No answers are wrong, so please say what you think. I spent approximately 0 minutes of thought on it, so it's guaranteed to need more work, and I won't take anything personally. -- Djonni (talk) 15:55, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

A couple of alternatives I knocked together for comparison.
First alternative (current version):

⚜️ Aeter 📈

Second, smaller emoji:

⚜️ Aeter 📈

Third, which is really implementing an |extended=yes for {{Guild link}}:

⚜️ Aeter (S • W • T)

(Those are: (Stats page • Wiki page • Talk page))
Just spitballing ideas, suggestions for other alternatives are welcome. -- Djonni (talk) 17:51, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

Nice idea, I personally prefer the last one as it makes it very similar to the Gods one. --WardPhoenix (talk) 18:36, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

I thinks it's a good idea and like WardPhoenix, I prefer the last one. It's more "beautiful" than the emoji. --Elantien (talk) 11:32, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
