There are too many Category:Weapons categories. If you expand every single category and sub-category, there are 164 total categories and sub-categories. It's become cluttered and confusing. It's getting to the point where it's difficult to navigate through and find what you're looking for. I suggest we strive for elegance and make things more sleek and tidy.
To this end, I suggest deleting a number of sub-categories that are not necessary. For example, sub-categories that have only 1 or 2 weapons are unnecessary. Category:Sonic demolitions has one weapon, and it's already properly classified under other appropriate weapon categories. Category:Concussive weapons has one weapon, and it's already properly classified under other appropriate weapon categories.
Categories are rarely a bad thing, and I think it's best if all of the articles in Category:Weapons were moved to their correct category, as is requested by the top of the category page, before we talk about getting rid of categories. Some that are empty at the moment might fill up. CadeCalrayn 18:04, July 23, 2013 (UTC)
Why does it say in Category:Weapons: "All articles need to be moved exclusively to before any are recategorized."? I don't understand that.--Richterbelmont10 (talk) 18:42, July 23, 2013 (UTC)
Makes perfect sense. What doesn't make sense is this statement: "All articles need to be moved exclusively to before any are recategorized." This statement makes it sound like you must move the article to before you can move it to the correct category.--Richterbelmont10 (talk) 18:42, July 23, 2013 (UTC)
Woah. That CT is from 2006. You can basically ignore that statement; go ahead and recategorize the articles in both Category:Weapons and . CadeCalrayn 19:06, July 23, 2013 (UTC)
The only usefulness of the Category:Other_weapons category is that it can be a place to put weapons that don't fit into any other category, or strange weapons or weapons that don't have enough description and so we have no idea what they really are.
Sounds good to me, I was thinking about creating this category as well. Just make sure to title it "Category:Thrown weapons" and not "Category:Thrown Weapons".--Exiled Jedi(Greetings) 21:47, July 26, 2013 (UTC)
Okayy.. I never created a category or sub-category before. I hope I did it right...--Richterbelmont10(come in R2!) 01:20, July 27, 2013 (UTC)
