I have spent many hours of free time generating ("cleaning up") images from FM:LA and Camospecs (as well as FM:DC and FM:FWL). I have not gotten to FM:Comstar, FM:Crusader Clans, FM:WardenClans, or FM:Periphery yet. The LCAF images have been ready for upload for weeks, but I have been distracted and/or busy. Considering the timely debate on page format and image uploads, is there any consensus on how these files should be presented in BTW? The current consensus on Policy Talk: Images seems to have detractors (specifically RE: size and number of images presented), problems that cannot be addressed by simply placing images in an info box or gallery (c.f. discussion on Talk: Armed Forces of the Federated Suns). Thanks!--S.gage 19:20, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
It seems that it would be prudent to hold off until that discussion shakes out. --Scaletail 16:12, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

Merge LCAF with LAAFEdit

It seems like duplicate work having two separate pages for the LCAF and the LAAF - unit names and histories are the same, training academies the same, a few changes thanks to the FedSuns but nothing so radical that it literally ceased to exist/change into something entirely new (i.e. French Royal Army vs French Revolutionary Army). Never mind the fact that the Lyran state went back to its original name. I think the two pages should be merged, with distinctions made within the article when talking the Lyran military during its different phases of existence.

I am game for that--Dmon (talk) 14:21, 18 November 2017 (EST)
I think what it might be worth doing is reworking the article so it's less Lyran Commonwealth Armed Forces/Lyran Alliance Armed Forces and more Armed Forces of the Lyran Commonwealth Throughout History, if that makes any sense? For me, the article would be of most use if it covered what we know of the Commonwealth's military forces from the founding of the Commonwealth up to the present day, so that it could capture those brigades that were active in the Age of War and Star League, the brigades that died off in the Succession Wars, the new units and commands formed as a part of the Federated Commonwealth, the Lyran Alliance period nad the changes throughout the Dark Age era.

Having recently redone the CCAF and DCMS pages, I was thinking those might serve as a template for updating all the Great House army pages? LittleWolf (talk) 13:24, 22 November 2017 (EST)
I'm a minority in this, i believe they should be kept separate. Alot people grew up LAAF being separate animal for good chunk of the game being out. Only "Recently" game wise did it become a Lyran Commonwealth Armed Forces again. Keep it organized and separated please. -- Wrangler (talk) 13:49, 22 November 2017 (EST)
