Templates REDIRECT problem???? Edit

I've been coming across templates of the sort {{GreatWriter6}} which instead of displaying an icon, as intended, activate a REDIRECT  link. Anyone has any idea whyc this is?

It was a double redirect, templates cannot handle that. I fixed it. See, I renamed all the {{Foo6}} templates into {{FooIcon6}} and made {{culture6}}, {{production6}}, {{faith6}} and {{gold6}} (for starters) to add a linkified text too. I noticed they were almost always used as in "{{gold6}} Gold", so now you don't need that redundancy anymore and "{{gold6}}" is enough. Plus, now it linkifies the word too; I find it much more accessible than linkifying the icon only. It would seem like a good idea to me to convert the rest of the templates too, so that one version would render only the icon and another both the icon and the text. But those were the most used icons anyway so I started with them. —ZeroOne (talk) 13:08, November 15, 2016 (UTC)
