Category clean-up scheduleEdit

  • Add category:Demons to every demon for alphabetic search.Disputed: See below
  • Remove and delete any Demon race category ends with "Clan".
  • Remove or replace any Demon race category with alternative or untranslated name to the officially translation by Atlus NA.
  • Reorder the categories at the bottom of each article for easier organization by other editors:
    • Ally/Enemy/Demon/Boss > Demon Race > Persona Arcana > Raidou Demon Order > Originating myth > Digital Devil Story > Megami Tensei > Giten Megami Tensei > Majin Tensei > Shin Megami Tensei (I > II > if... > NINE > III > IMAGINE > SJ > IV) > Devil Summoner > Raidou > Digital Devil Saga > Devil Survivor > DemiKid > Devil Children > Persona
  • Remove and delete Category:Boss Type and replaced by Category:Devil Children Bosses.


  • Should we keep LNC alignment category?
    • Delete: LNC is mostly bound to the race with only few exceptions.
  • How to deal with demon/persona category of remake version?
    • Only keep it in the demon/persona article which does not present in the original version.

Category branchingEdit

Small dispute with category demons being added to every demon page. The branch/child categories already feed into the trunk/parent Demons category. Having both on each page ruins the branching and introduces a lot of unneeded redundancy. Great Mara (talk) 03:24, October 2, 2014 (UTC)

Agreed. The practice is to place each demon in relevant subcategories under Category:Demons. BLUER一番 07:14, October 2, 2014 (UTC)

Additionally, a discussion on policy for the wiki goes to the forums first. BLUER一番 07:14, October 2, 2014 (UTC)

most of the stuff on that list is already done. i'm pretty sure all the "Clan" and alt/untranslated with official translation race categories have been replaced, and devil children templates add "(Game) Bosses" categories in addition to Boss Type category (since there's a Boss Type race page now).
as for the category order, shouldnt the game-specific ones be in the same order as listed in the Scope page? most of them are added through the stat templates now, which kinda stops us from reordering them, but once all the now-unneeded hard categories are deleted it'll make any future category changes/deletions (like if its decided to delete alignment categories, or deciding that, for example, "Category:Persona 3 Portable Personas" should only be used for P3P-exclusive personas) extremely simple since only a few templates need changed instead of hundreds or thousands of pages, so its worth it. i've updated all the stat templates to take off Category:Demons too, so they'll all come off on their own once somebody edits them, no other effort required.
