I was wondering if it's possible for someone to rename the "Demonic Equipment" page. I was doing some research on weapons through the wiki home and I noticed that the Demonic items were under "Equipment." Now I know technically all weapons are "equipment" but according to whats listed, the only demonic Item that counts as "equipment" is the Unholy Fear Shield while the other items count as weapons. So I thought the demonic stuff should be listed under "Weapons" as well. I also went to the Weapons page and saw that "Demonic Equipment" wasn't added to the page. So I wondered if someone can rename the "Demonic Equipment" to "Demonic Weapons" then put them as a category in the "Weapons page" as well as under the "Weapons list" on the homepage (Before Divine Weapons respectfully since they came out before Divines but after Legendary Weapons.) I also saw that Celtic Weapons are not listed under Weapons on the home page but are listed on the Weapons page itself. I was wondering if it'd be cool if someone could do edit that too.

P.S. The Celtic Weapons didn't work when I tried to make it into a link but the page exists so I'm not 100% sure why that happened.

"Demonic Equipment" was originally named "Demonic Weapons", but was renamed because of the Fear Shield. I'm not sure if anyone will agree to revert the name, but I think simply leaving a weapon category will do.

Well in terms of divine weapons they would have armors and shields so I can understand a name change but with demonic weapons the only "equipment" is one item. The majority of it being weapons. I understand kinda for more than one item but just one item? I say whichever has the most items should determine category. Majority weapons so Demonic weapons. eh idk. it seems silly to me but at least it was moved on the home page to the weapons list so ty for that.

however, if we turned it back into Demonic weapons, i feel like either people would wonder why a shield (technically 2, but they're 2 versions of the same weapon) is in there or that we'd be ignoring said shields

you wouldn't stick 5 guys and a girl in a group and call it a group of men would you?

Depends. Because "men" can mean "human being", which in that case would work. SuchIsLife.png

this might become a topic for discussion about the divine weapons category too once g20 comes out, as it brings the divine shield and some divine armors...

lol Well as an attempt not to sound sexist I would still call the group a group of men...Mostly for the reasons that if I didn't some ultra sensitive feminist somewhere might cop an attitude and get upset over it.

Anyways I do have a good compromise here to resolve both situations, the Demonic Weapons and the Divine weapons when they come. Why not use both? Title the pages/links "Demonic Weapons and Equipment" & "Divine Weapons and Equipment." Seems like a simple solution that addresses both item types and states them accurately with no confusion.

But weapons are equipment 8U.

Y'all people have for some reason completely forgotten the existence of subcategories.

Sakura502 (talk)20:41, 2 December 2015

^ She's right you know. Just make it a subcategory in the category it belongs in.

I was actually waiting for people to remember the existence of subcategories. But then I gave up.

Sakura502 (talk)10:29, 3 December 2015

I know weapons are equipment. At this point I'm just talking about how the pages are named so it would define between general equipment like headgear, shields etc and actual weapons. Just a thought

Blackjackz (talk)09:21, 18 December 2015
 

And again, subcategories are a thing for that exact reason.

You put everything in "X Equipment" category, and then separate everything in that with "X Weapon" or "X Headgear", etc.
