That troper aint right.

I do question the weapons page.

This isn't the first time I've heard them having rudeness problems.

Can confirm the above statement. Though I have made some royal screw-ups on the page and its subpages, it didn't warrant them rubbing it in my face and making threats of disciplinary action.

EDIT: Regarding the weapons folder, that was left over from what I believe was an official compromise on the page for the first game, after the page Weapons.Destiny got put on the permanent red-link club.

That said, the weapons folder reeks of users trying to get around mods explicitly saying "no, don't make a goddamn characters page for the weapons."

... and why did those deleted sections have their own folder separate from the A-Z folders?

I don't recall if there was an official ruling for the weapons folder itself - last time I asked, they only pointed towards the weapons subpage being redlinked. That said, it was a compromise over whatever happened to warrant it.

Frankly, I'm okay with the weapons page going away. Should we make a separate thread?

Sent a rudeness notifier.

Since they have gotten quite a few, suspension time as well.

As for the edit they made which triggered this discussion, is it safe to revert (under the pretense of "don't touch it without prior discussion") or can it be considered a valid edit on its own?

Edit: never mind, late to the party...

^^ Yes, it's a valid edit. Re-adding the division would require troper discussion/consensus.

15th May, 2019 12:21:25 PM

Like I said, why did that deleted section have its own folder?

15th May, 2019 12:22:24 PM

My bad, I thought ABD had axed the weapon tropes. Yeah, the raid-specific trope folder needed to go.

Probably beating the dead horse, but another of his edit reasons was "That was a stupid pothole and you know it" on a YMMV edit.

Anyway, I'll see if I can start a new thread for the D2 weapons folders getting deleted.
