  • Hi, What is involved in creating a minor category, the kind you tag at the bottom of an article e.g. Bounty Hunters. Is it just the main page and a redirect?

    Thanks.

    • For the most part, yes.

      A number of the occupation categories are supposed to work with the character template to provide a link in the infobox and add the category. The last I checked, the latter may not be working.

      Please keep in mind though that "minor category" should not be exceedingly small. The nominal threshold I've used tends to be between 3 and 5 articles.

    • Thanks. I was inquiring as I was asked by another who suggested a category for smoking characters. I'll bring it up in the forum. If people did want the category it would be nice to differentiate between cigarettes, cigars and pipe smokers.

      I personally would like a monocle category but I'm odd.

    • Actually that may be a no-go...

    • Smokers or monocle wearers?

      Fine with me, I defer to your good judgement.

    • Though I'm in favor of a "smokers" category, I remember having a conversation on a talk page a while back about what counts as somebody being a "smoker" and what counts as somebody just having an occasional cigar. Waylon Jones (Arkhamverse) was who were talking about because he was seen smoking a cigar in a tiny cameo appearance he made in Arkham City.

      Sorry to hop in, by the way. I just wanted to chime in and say I thought that was a neat idea, but alas might be too open for interpretation to work as a full blown category.

    • Very good point. Just because Luthor has a cigar during Invasion! doesn't make him Lobo. There's a quote in Demon Vol 2 regarding how Jason and Harry would discuss cigar brands but I've never seen Blood smoke once. Even if you added specifications to the category the casual editor isn't going to read them.

      But also, thanks for jumping in Haroldrocks, you're an admin I haven't 'met' yet.

      EDIT: Blood smokes a pipe in Demon #1.

      First thing that would produce is a 3-page list of 1-appearance villains, half of them with "von" in their names, and nearly none of them having his own character page. PLUS Black X, so I'm all for it. Black X is the Nick Fury of Quality Comics.

    • Ah, where were you when I brought up the greatest of all villainous clich├ęs SDD?

    • I was back in the stacks, rummaging for stuff and not finding it. For instance, didn't there used to be a Category around here called "Cults"? What happened to that?

    • As long as we're talking about categories, some pertinent ones I would like to see are things like "Central City residents" and so on. Lot's of minor characters to fill in as well and not just the usual suspects.
