Not a bad idea. Why not write a directory seperating between the different games?


Not really sure what you mean by "directory", but I feel that categorising "Playable characters by game" as we've done here would be overkill. -- Supermorff 20:16, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

Like on the Category:Hedgehogs you said was the wrong way to go about the merge.


You mean when you re-ordered all the pages in the category? Surely that only works when there's only one game in which each character is playable? Since that's not the case here, I don't see how it would work. -- Supermorff 17:17, October 7, 2009 (UTC)

I wonder. If I was to insert the category twice, under both [[Category:Hedgehogs|Heroes]] and [[Category:Hedgehogs|Adventure]]?


No, it'll only appear once. Not sure whether it'll appear under the first or second though. -- Supermorff 17:24, October 7, 2009 (UTC)

Which is why we should have categories like this one.


Except this category isn't necessary (in my opinion), and creating more of them like this would be overcategorisation. I'm pretty sure that's how this discussion started. Make a list instead. -- Supermorff 17:48, October 7, 2009 (UTC)

Molten Scandium (talk) (contributions) joined Retro because they had the overcategorisation.


Go to a character page on Retro - any character page - and tell me how many categories it has. -- Supermorff 18:52, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

I thought they had more than that.


Now you know better. What Molten actually said to me was that they had "a working category tree". No suggestion that they had more or used more categories. To be honest, I think our category tree works well too now, with some minor exceptions. -- Supermorff 19:00, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

If you were to point me in the direction of the exceptions, I could probably fix them.


If it was that simple I would have done it myself. -- Supermorff 10:30, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

One large category, then.


Should we put it at Category:Playable characters or somewhere else? -- Supermorff 18:43, October 30, 2009 (UTC)

I've erected the page.
