When adding new screenshots of menus etc. should we take screenshots from the classic version or premium? See for example military interface Koos (talk) 15:40, 23 December 2022 (UTC)

My vote is both, because we will have readers that use both. (I think it's fine to leave one out if you aren't able to get a screenshot from one version, but we should aim to eventually have both available.) —Lethosor (talk) 17:54, 23 December 2022 (UTC)
Premium only - Ideally we should have both but as things are right now the pages are going to get overwhelmed and become unreadable if we try to have both. Having sperate interface pages for just the screenshots is impractical and since the userbase for steam version is considerably larger I say premium should be preferred. However, if we can use tabs or something like it I would say definitely both. --Jan (talk) 18:18, 23 December 2022 (UTC)
Priority should be given to graphical (premium) screenshots since they are immediately recognizable by all players. If ascii screenshots are included, they should be accompanied by a key describing what the relevant characters represent. -- 16:01, 25 December 2022 (UTC)
I disagree and think that both should be represented. Classic screenshots are more recognizable by some longer-time players. —Lethosor (talk) 04:13, 1 January 2023 (UTC)
