Category talk:Other Regions

Gotta say, I really don't like the name of this category. Sounds half-assed to me, and too generically topic. I was honestly thinking of making a Category:Tyria to place all the regions of Tyria in, leaving Category:Locations to only hold Tyria (world), Cantha, Unending Ocean, Elona, and Category:The Mists, but never really got around to it (especially since that category will be needed once expansions go outside of Tyria). But this... is just eh. Can we please name it something else at least, like perhaps gw1:Category:Unexplorable locations? Konig/talk 22:10, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Edit:Also, a few of these entries which I've removed and placed back into Category:Locations did not really belong under this naming - specifically, Elona, Cantha, and Plains of Golghein - they're not regions. Konig/talk 22:12, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
I basicly agree with you in all of your points, I just wanted to have basiclly a catch all category for all places which are of minor importance.
cat:Locations is a mix from technical terms, like area or POI and these other regions, but as you poind out, perhaps it is better to call them other places or what not.
My goal was it to only have technical terms in the cat:Locations that was my main objective by creating this caetegory. As I said I basiclly agree with you in all points, so if you have a better solution, I will gladly help to implement. - Yandere Talk to me... 07:30, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
Well until someone decided to put all the technical terms under the first letter of their category, they were all |* and thus at the beginning, separated from all actual locations (which is how I think it should be done since those articles are, like all |* articles, define the category's topic).

Yeah I know but the * section became awefully cluttered. If we create a Tyria cat, most things would be added there anywhere which would leave us with the Tyria(world) and the 3 places listed under elsewhere. That would be 4 non-technical vs. 8 or so technical articles. To list the technical articles under * and the non-technical not under * than seams a bit silly to me.
By the way I think a Tyria cat would be great it also would the Other region thing I did more or less obsolet, because most things just would go there. - Yandere Talk to me... 10:47, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
Since we appear to be in the preference of mixing types in categories (I almost went and recreated Category:Regions), I'd support Category:Tyria as the catch-call category for everything not within zones. And then leave Category:Locations as more for categorising the definition pages instead. -- User Sig.png 14:23, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
