Senate Seal image[edit]

User:Frietjes Has constantly removed the senate seal from the template, under the claims it makes it too big. But that's not true. As you can see from these two screen-shots (1, 2), adding the seal simply moves the names over to the left more. There is so much space between the names without the seal, that there is plenty of room to spare. Frietjes, please give a better reason for it to be excluded. Fry1989 eh? 22:57, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

try viewing the template on a narrow display. the primary purpose of a navigation template is for navigation. decorative images do not assist with navigation and reduce the space available for the actual navigation content. Frietjes (talk) 15:57, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
I use both narrow and wide displays. We do not cater to people with a certain type of display over others. If we did, you would be removing these images from all navigation templates, but you are not doing so. These templates are not being treated as "galleries for decorative images", and you know that. A gallery has plenty of images, these templates only have a single directly related image added to them. Fry1989 eh? 20:32, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
Can we choose a place for a centralized discussion rather than copying and pasting the threads on several different talk pages? How about Template talk:Massachusetts State Senators or really anywhere is fine, so long as it is in one place. Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 03:18, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
