Category talk:Weapons

From TheKolWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Since it seems it has already started, the weapon type nav templates should be removed, and weapons should all be categorized three times (melee/ranged, 1/2/3 handed, type(swords/slingshots/etc.)) The nav templates are just too intrusive and a category will accomplish the same thing, a list of all items of the same type. --JRSiebz (|§|) 17:20, 26 May 2006 (CDT)

Category:Melee Weapons
Category:Ranged Weapons
Category:1-Handed Weapons
Category:2-Handed Weapons
Category:3-Handed Weapons

Category:Axes
Category:Banjos
Category:Clubs
Category:Crossbows
Category:Knives
Category:Polearms
Category:Saucepans
Category:Slingshots
Category:Spears
Category:Staves
Category:Swords
Category:Umbrellas
Category:Utensils
Category:Whips

Each weapon should be categorized in 1 of each column, no weapons directly in Category:Weapons, which will show all subcategories and the (by power) pages. --JRSiebz (|§|) 17:30, 26 May 2006 (CDT)

  • I guess all the "unique weapon types", could just be placed in Category:Other Weapons. Category:Other is misleadingly named. --JRSiebz (|§|) 17:34, 26 May 2006 (CDT)
    • What about accordions, banjos, saucepans, slingshots, and umbrellas? None of those categories contain more than 2 items, so should those go into Category:Other Weapons as well? --Quietust 19:33, 26 May 2006 (CDT)
  • Note: that just like all ofther items, a weapon may also be a part of Category:Drops, Category:Combines, Category:NPC Buy, Category:Quest Items, etc. --JRSiebz (|§|) 18:04, 26 May 2006 (CDT)
  • Nav templates (which are replaced by categories) are being removed, why have a category axes and a axes nav template (which links to the category), it's redundant, same with all weapon types. Even the custom items nav is being removed, it is also redundant because of the custom items category.--JRSiebz (|§|) 18:30, 26 May 2006 (CDT)
  • Is there any way to, for example, view a list of all 1-handed ranged weapons using these categories? If not, I can see an argument for subcategorisation - 1-handed melee weapons, 2-handed melee weapons, &c. To be honest, subcategorisation is ugly and I don't like it, but I still want a list of 1-handed ranged weapons. --rhebus 08:28, 28 May 2006 (CDT)
  • Apparently not much has been done... anyone object to me starting a page for each weapon type based on stats (muscle, myst, moxie weapons)? That way we could see what weapons are x-handed (or have characteristics we're looking for) for whatever stat we want to use. -- Asinine 03:56, 26 May 2008 (CDT)
    • I object based on the fact it would duplicate what already exists on the Wiki. --Bagatelle 17:55, 26 May 2008 (CDT)
