Merge articles about items with this page
Right now, we have articles about specific types of items, like weapons and armor, as well as this page. I think these should be merged. The articles are all stubs, and it might be better to have all the item information on one page. Nathan Stoddard 19:15, 6 June 2009 (CEST)
I would rather see all specific-item-type information removed from this page and change it to discuss features of items in general and link to more specific item listings. An article that tried to provide detailed information on all item types would grow unwieldy. Rdanhenry 21:36, 8 June 2009 (CEST)
- Those individual item descriptions can't get very long. The articles aren't about items in a particular game, nor should they be. There are other wikis for particular games. Nathan Stoddard 18:02, 9 June 2009 (CEST)
- Substantial length articles could be written just listing various names of weapons or armor types with very minimal descriptions (e.g., "these are varieties of long swords:"). Corpses alone are worthy of a substantial article on their uses as food and other potential uses. I'll admit you can't get much more out of, say, potions, without going into "common types of potions", "possible 'flavor' descriptions for potions", "possible alchemical systems for mixing/making potions" and the like, but even stitching together the material already existing on items is going to be rather lengthy, and there's a lot that is obviously missing. I think more, shorter, more specific entries are better than trying to pile everything into vague categories like "items". Rdanhenry 02:06, 10 June 2009 (CEST)
Convert to Category
This page should be converted to an umbrella category Item. Then every page that is an item or group of items can simply belong to the category.
It would likely be useful to have each of the types of items be a subcategory of Item. Eben 21 August 2012
