Why is that, exactly? That wasn't in the Proposed Standards the last time I edited egg pages, so I based it on the ones for food and drinks, which respectively are "Eat Effects" and "Drink Effects". Wouldn't "Use Effects" be more consistent?
Don't you mean "Why is that, eggxactly?" :~) Actually, you're right, this is a fairly recent change. Basically, it's because not all usable items have a use effect (briefcase, for example), and we wanted to have a standard section title that would be applicable for all usable items. Jinya made the final choice on wording. Here's the archived discussion: Talk:Proposed_Standards-Archive#Standards_for_Usable_Items_.26_Combat_Items. --Gymnosophist 22:38, 28 Jul 2005 (Central Daylight Time)
- Hmm, I guess it should be "Use Effects", "Eat Effects", and "Drink Effects" or "When Used", "When Eaten", "When Drunk"... I think when drunk is the drink equiv. of eaten, past tenses are ate and drank.--JRSiebz 22:42, 28 Jul 2005 (Central Daylight Time)
