  • Hello!

    I would like to discuss about the categories we have in the wiki.

    As I was browsing the full list of categories, I have noticed that there are categories with "duplicates". Both the category and its duplicate have almost the exact same content.

    These are the category pairs I'm talking about:

    • "Animal/Other" and "Animals"
    • "The Gray Garden" and "Grey Garden"
    • "Mogeko Castle" and "Mogeko Series"
    • "Tosatsu Kingdom" and "Totsusa Kingdom"
    • "Wadanohara" and "Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea"
    • "Witch" and "Witches"

    With that said, allow me to state my choices of the categories that will remain and some explanations.

    • "Animal/Other" and "Animals"
      • The pages in Animal/Other outnumber the pages in Animals. I would go with Animals, but that would require A LOT of work. So for this one, I will go with Animal/Other.
    • "The Gray Garden" and "Grey Garden"
      • Obviously, I will go with The Gray Garden. It's the official name, anyway.
    • "Mogeko Castle" and "Mogeko Series"
      • If we're talking about "Mogeko Series," I am thinking that we're talking about Mogeko in general, like the entirety of Mogeko, not just Mogeko Castle. So, I will go with Mogeko Castle for this one, as it seems both categories go after Mogeko Castle.
    • "Tosatsu Kingdom and Totsusa Kingdom"
      • Since "Totsusa" is now the updated name and "Tosatsu" is obsolete, I'll obviously go with Totsusa Kingdom.
    • "Wadanohara" and "Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea"
      • While "Wadanohara" is used in casual conversations to refer to the game and, at the same time, shorten the official name, it may be confused with the character herself. On the other hand, while "Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea" is the official name, it is fairly long. Since we have to be practical in editing, I'll say I have to go with "Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea"
    • "Witch" and "Witches"
      • Since there's many witches, not just one, then I'll go with Witches.

    I apologize for the huge text wall. I hope that you read everything :P

    What do you think of my choices? Feel free to counteract with my choices. It doesn't automatically mean that whatever are my choices here will be done. I need to talk to the community first before doing major improvements!

    Thank you in advance!

    P.S. If I miss any category pair, let me know!

    • I've been noticing this problem(?) ever since i started on this wiki  but I didn't actually care In my opinion i would agree to your choices, since I too think the same way.

      Anyways, i've checked some category that hasnt been deleted, and in the category list theres this category Chlomaki's World and i think it should be deleted, too... as Chlomaki resides in the Witch World, not her own world. unless it means something else

      Oh. Thanks for pointing that out! I'll delete that with the others after a number of replies.

    • (I just started adding categories before I even read this post. Now I'm just facepalming myself for being an idiot)I agree on you on this problem. Having duplicate categories are a bit confusing. Mind if help out?

      But there is another thing I want say. Recently, some characters were put in the wrong category. I asked the person who did this and they still haven't replied. You think I should waited another day

      And one more thing.....can I become an admin?

      Tooshy

      Was too shy to ask earlier

      I wanted to ask Dascini when I hit my 1,000 edit but I felt at that time too inexperienced. This was the first time that i've devoted myself to a wiki. But  I feel more confidence in myself now with more people around me~

      Again, using the school library's computer :P

      1. Sure! We'll try to remove the categories that're needed to be removed. I really appreciate your help!
      2. Apologies, but that's my classmate who's new to Mogeko. Also he doesn't know what "monochrome" means. I just explained to him what it means when it was recess. I'll get it sorted out when I go home. Thanks!
      3. To be honest, I would LOVE to promote you! There's just one problem.

        I'm not a bureaucrat yet.

        I sent a request to Dascini for bureaucracy. Once he accepts my request I'll be sure to give you admin rights! :D (Originally, I am planning to promote you for Content Moderator. But since you want to be an admin, why not?)

      (Heheh... You're not the only one shy here... I was also shy to send a request for adminship...)

    • Thank you! I actually don't mind being a Content Moderator if it gets more work done. I always thought that if someone was an admin, they'll get to created polls, get the wiki affiliated with similiar wikis, and be the quickest with the wiki news. I guess you can make me either on, if you think i'm qualified. The only thing is, I SUCK at making Templates, that's why I never put infoboxes in Character articles -_-

      Going back on the category discussion, should we make a "Characters not on the Character Sheet" and "Currently Unnamed Characters" categories? And/or a page with a list of the unnamed characters? Or should we just wait until all of the names are revealed? (Sorry, for all the questions, I thought if I said it now I dont need to make a thread on it.)

    • I'm fine with you as an admin. I mean, I needed some help anyways! :)

      With the templates, I'll cover that! I'm learning on how to make them!

      Good insights! We need a buttload of categories in this wiki. So keep 'em coming!

      (Thanks for welcoming me! :P)

    • So uh, i just checked the wiki activity and found 2 same category - Pitch Black World and Satanick's World. Since Satanick's World is mostly complete, i guess Pitch Black World should be deleted? (Since theres only Kurotsuno in the Pitch Black World Category for now)

        Loading editor
    • Hmm... Before the Pitch Black World category was created, I was thinking of moving all of those pages in the Satanick's World category to that category. (But it's too late though)

      In the meantime, we'll most likely delete the Pitch Black World category. I'll try to move all of those pages to the correct one this summer. (Well, yeah, both of them are correct but, y'know, PBW is the official name.)

    • Hah, are not you guys cute (lol past) (ladies and gentlemen these are our *admin and bureaucrat" ... and some how they are "SHY") XD okay okay, back to main topic, i would like to propose something, this was not offical but as people might have noticed that the "Hybrids" are issues, eg Higan, Silhoutte etc so i came up with idea, if we cant come up with new category (because there are barely Hybrids at all ... yet) why not give them two present categories? like Silhoutte can be in both God and Devil categories ... Higan can be both Angel and Demon, its better than keeping them in one category...right?

      there is one more thing, can we rename categories? lets say we don't know what is offcial name Justim's world, but if its name is revealed to be something like "Ancient World" or "Mystic World" would not still calling it ... Vicer's or Justim's world make be ... awkward? i mean imagine if we called Gray world "Kcalbs World" somthing similar.

    • You do bring up a good point. Personally, I think its better to leave Higan in a new Hybrid category, ( Not everyone is 100% sure that Silhouette is a god and devil so its best to leave her in the other species category. Second, we should hold off for now on renaming worlds until we have more information about them. But its fine to rename them more better sounding.

    • If we can get to see more hybrids, then I think that's the time to create a "Hybrid" category. Time will tell us if we are really going to curate one.

      I also like the idea of putting Higan to the Angel and Demon categories, but I think we just leave her untouched at the moment.

      @Deserve you found our secret how dare u
