I would like to actually organize the open theories by subject rather than just having everything in one big mass, so I'm proposing some sub-sections: Strawhat Crew, Friends and Allies, Enemies, Other characters, Plot-Related, World Government and Marines, Devil Fruits, History and Will of D (would prob include Polygliphs here) which could also be Setting...or that could be a separate page.

Obviously this is going to be a big project, so if anyone has any other suggestions for categories/how to sort things, that would be helpful. I'm probably just going to make one page for each thing and then later go back and sort those into folders based on topic.

...If nobody's going to object to this, I'm just gonna go ahead and do it.

Wow. good job

I'm surprised One Piece had so many WMG (though I am also guilty adding to the list) but so few Fanfic Recs compared to other long runners.

Isn't open wmg and 'other' in 'meta and other' is the same thing though?

I think this is all just a little too chaotic, especially with the Open theories 4 and 5 page still intact. Could you narrow the categories down some? Maybe merge some character theory pages together and merge the history and lore page with the plot page? I mean, I agree that the sections were too big, but I don't think we need it split up into so many pages. It makes it a bit annoying to have to find the proper folder.

Example, if I want to make a theory that "Luffy is related to Gold Roger", that could fit under Luffy's page, the History and Lore page, the plot page, or the Other Characters page; The categories are too interrelated. Also, there's many theories in the "Others" section under Meta and Others that could be placed somewhere. Good effort, but there's still work to do.

And about the two remaining open theories pages, do you plan on leaving them like that? Are we supposed to add new theories there or under the other files?

Should there be more section on Jossed WMG? Jossed part two, maybe?

Yeah, I agree. But why did you copy and paste things and move them down on the same page? Create a whole new page and just move everything.

I went ahead and did it just now lol. But of course you can feel free to change anything you like.

Huh? I thought I copied it from unconfirmed WMG and moved it to jossed...maybe someone originally had moved it to jossed page but didn't delete the original entry? Anyway thanks!

Now, I propose opening a fifth section after either the Zou Arc is over or the Pirate Alliance Saga as a whole is over. These theories just keep rolling in.

I propose opening a 4th section. The third is pretty full now. Can I just go ahead and do that? I think I'm just gonna go ahead and do that...

Justice Reaper here...a regular here on this set of pages, especially with the latest and currently-ongoing Fishman Island arc. Now, how best to say this...

Is it too much to wish that a Fishman will join the Straw Hats as their next crew member? Waaaaaah!...okay, not really crying, but I still think it would be so AWESOME if the Straw Hats got a Fishman crew member.

I've already listed out my WMG re that idea on that page...and I'm hoping it'll be either Jimbei, Vander Decken, or some other Fishman of note that'll join the crew. And re that last option...hmm...BRAINSTORMING!!!

Hmm that be to predictable o.o a fishman might join them but it won't be till later on when its clear that they really need one :D or maybe the kraken is already consider a member but its really the pet of the group !

This page has reached a point where, due to its size, editing it can potentially cause server problems. See this thread for details.

To fix this, I will be splitting the page as follows:

It will probably take me a couple of days to organize the entries into their respective lists before the changes are made. Please let me know if their are any objections to this strategy.

Sounds good, and I wish you luck.

Sounds fun! Good luck. Also, there should maybe be a "Silly BUT CONFIRMED" one, considering how Oda works.

Thanks both of you! I think we should probably put any confirmed silly theories in the Confirmed page, since it's my experience that the Confirmed pages usually are pretty small in comparison.

I'd also combine any theories that are just about the same. I think I have seen the same idea for Doflamingo's fruit like three times.

Also maybe a section for guesses on the 10th crew mate.

A section within one of the "Open sections I think. Hey, let me help you out. I'll work bottom going up, sound good?

On second thought that would be kinda stupid...it would cause complications with multiples.

"I'd also combine any theories that are just about the same. I think I have seen the same idea for Doflamingo's fruit like three times.

I think this is a good idea. If there are some recurring themes in some theories, giving those their own page would possibly remove the need for an "Open Theories Two". There could instead just be an "Open Theories", "10th Crewmember Theories, etc. along with the Jossed, Completed, and Silly.

"On second thought that would be kinda stupid...it would cause complications with multiples."

I would be more worried about over-writing each others edits, since only one person can edit at a time. I appreciate the offer, though!

The best way that you can help would be to review the info once I finish splitting it, to make sure I have everything in the correct place since I'm not as familiar with the series as you all are. Then brain-storming about what theory-themes deserve getting their own pages, of course.

I'm about 40% through the list at the moment, so I should have something for you to review before too long.

And I'm done! If anyone wants to go and make sure that I put everything in the right place, that would be great.
