I noticed last week that the page for the Total War
series had gotten quite long and unwieldy, with many cases of poor Example Indentation
. The most obvious solution seemed to be to create pages for all the individual games.
I would suggest the following steps when dealing with each individual game:
1. Create a page for the game. Write a description, upload an image, add to indexes, etc. Make sure they are added to the right namespace, i.e. Video Games
. Add redirects if need be.
2. Browse through the tropes on the main Total War
page (possibly with ctrl+f) and look for all tropes that apply only to the game you are working on., then move them to the new work page. If a trope features multiple uses throughout the series (e.g. through multiple bullet points), then move the entry that applies only to the game in question. The main Total War
page should ultimately be reserved for tropes that recur throughout the series or that apply to the series as a whole.
3. Check the Example Indentation
, grammar, veracity and general quality of the trope entries, both in the new work pages and in the original series page.
4. Maintain the new work pages, as well as the series page, to ensure that they remain in a good state.
I have already done this for Total War: Shogun 2
and am part way through doing it for Medieval II: Total War
. Now I'm asking others to help me, particularly with the games I haven't played (Shogun 1
). Many hands make light work.
