Like the symbols for Leaf and Mount Myoboku showing up near Naruto's name?--Karunyan (talk) 13:08, August 5, 2013 (UTC)

You mean the symbols that are...still there?--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 13:28, August 5, 2013 (UTC)

OK. I should have been clearer. I'm talking about the User/Wielder section of Jutsu and Tool page infoboxes.--Karunyan (talk) 13:44, August 5, 2013 (UTC)

Simant removed that feature a while ago. It seems it added too much lag to render the page or something along those lines. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 16:39, August 5, 2013 (UTC)

Sad to hear no more character affiliations. That must open the door to a whole lot of stuff. Would it have listed kakashi as anbu or something. Like how deep did the affiliations go for it to create such a lag on loading the pages? IRONFINGERZ2 (talk)IRONFINGERZ2IRONFINGERZ2 (talk)

Nope. The very first time the feature was used, it simply added a gender icon, but it was later tweaked to show affiliation. If the affiliation had an associated icon, the icon would show left to the user's name in jutsu and tool infoboxes. Nothing about rank. I think it had to do with the parsing of the information from other pages to see which affiliations each user had. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 20:43, August 6, 2013 (UTC)
