PostPosted: Sun Mar 26, 2006 8:13 pm    Post subject: Category Maintenance & Spell-check Reply with quote

FAC's category system is large and complex, so this thread is for any and all maintenance-related requests or reports.

What this means is, if you see anything like:
  • Mispelled (er... misspelled), misleading, or otherwise ambiguous category names
  • Duplicate categories for the same thing
  • Artist-, OC-, or doujinshi- specific categories
  • Major abuse/disorganization of a category

Then mention it here, and we will look into the issue when we have time.

This is strictly not a catch-all topic for proposing new categories -- please create your own, separate topics for new category requests.

Here are a few examples of recent maintenance:
  • TV > CSI category was misspelled until recently (previously read "Incestigation" instead of "Investigation" -- most. embarrassing. typo. ever!)

  • Anime/Manga > Yu-gi-Oh!: Two OC-specific sections were removed, and one pair of duplicate categories ('Genex' and 'Duel Monsters') has been resolved/combined.

  • Anime/Manga > Fullmetal Alchemist: The "Hummunculus" category was misspelled, and furthermore was actually a group of seven FMA antagonists rather then a single character. It has been reorganized and corrected, categories for FMA characters Lust, Envy, Greed, Wrath (and so on) are now under that heading.

  • Several doujin-specific categories under Anime/Manga > Original > Original Manga were removed due to lack of updates by their authors. The sections for "Pienemien's Ray" and "Boy Biography" were not affected as they are still updated from time to time. Similarly, Anime/Manga > KayboSasukeDensetsu was actually an original doujinshi by FAC member Kaybo_Sasuke, and has also been removed. All contents in these categories have been emptied into Anime/Manga > Original > Original Manga.

I'll start off with another YGO one:

YuGiOh> Asuka

Asuka is a GX character, so it belongs in the GX section. But she already has her own section in there, and the one not in there is empty, so it can probably just be deleted.

Gotcha. And apparently her English-version name is Alexis ... better include that too.

Another maintenance: Anime/Manga > "Mew Mew Power" and "Tokyo Mew Mew" are the same series, so the sections have been combined.

If we found pictures that don't have anything to do with the category they are in, where should we post the links?

It happens. Mention the category in this thread, and we'll take a look at it.

In the Real People>Actors/Actresses section, there is a category for Dan Radcliffe, and then there is one for Daniel Radcliffe.
They are, of course, the same person. The Dan Radcliffe one is empty, though. Probably should remove it.

In the category, Anime/Manga > Avatar: The Last Airbender > Zula, the name "Zula" is incorrect. It should be Princess Azula, or Azula.

Wikipedia agrees (the name "Zula" reportedly was from Comic-Con) .

Additional maintenance: I was reviewing & organizing the FMA section the other night.

- Found & removed a duplicate category for Roy Mustang.
- Merged the "Teacher" category into the section for Izumi, (Izumi is the "Teacher").
- Added a "State Alchemists" section for all the military officers of FMA (Roy, Riza, Frank, et al.)

Category: Anime > FMA > Devil's Nest

Deleted (for phailing the Google test). Turns out it's an FMA fansite and not an FMA character.

Hi

Can somebody please fix the spelling for 'Docter Who' in the TV section? I don't have any work posted there, it just annoys me when I see it. It is of course Doctor Who, but I'm sure you know that.

As a secondary request, if you have time can you consider tidying up the subfolders in Games/Sonic The Hedgehog series/Characters/? The commas in 'Rouge, the bat', 'Shadow, the hedgehog' and 'Knuckles, the echidna' seem erroneous, and also 'Sonic (himself)' is perhaps unnecessarily specific, considering that it's already in the Characters subfolder.

Thanks for your time.

Okay, spell-check done.

As for the Sonic character categories... unsure. Reason why the Sonic-specific category is called "Sonic (himself)" is to help distinguish the character category from the series category. Several other categories (Inuyasha, Naruto, etc.) follow a similar pattern.

I've got one.

In the 3x3 Eyes section, there are 14 pictures.
Only a whopping 2 of them are actually fanart for the series. D: (those two being this'n and this'n... =/

Forgive if I mentioned this already, but in Comics Teen Titans should really be listed under DC Comics. Also Boondocks should probably be under Newspaper comics. Also there are two Sin City categories.

(Personaly I would start a Dark Horse cat. to put Hellboy and Sin City under, but I suppose that is a cat. recomendation and not a maintainence issue)
