In game there are a number of weapons and types of armor which contain a species name in their name for example Huttese wraidskin guantlets. However some, but not all, of these items have a number of varients with different species names for example Cerean wraidskin chestguard and Huttese wraidskin chestguard. These variant always have different stats from what I've seen so far and sometimes also have different appearances and so I was wondering whether or not each variant should recive its own article or if the type of item should be named and then each variant mentioned. For example I could merge the two wraidskin chestguard articles above into a single wraidskin chestguard article and state that they were connected with Cereans and Hutts which I know some people would prefer. This wouldn't be ideal for those with different appearances though and for those which have a species name and no variant for example as far as I'm aware the only mariner's loose wraps are Ithorian mariner's loose wrap. So what's are policy on these items? Ayrehead02 18:35, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

  • The official policy on this is...uncertain, to say the least. It's been the subject of several recent TCs and a possible upcoming CT. My personal advice would be to make one central article for items like the wraidskin chestguard and make a note within that article that the Hutts and Cereans both created specific variants of that piece. For things like mariner's loose wrap, where there is only one instance of the wraps and it is directly connected to a culture or race, like the Ithorians, the article should simply be named Ithorian mariner's loose wrap.

    • Ok that sounds like the best idea in my opinion too especially since I belive there are a large number of variants for some items especially weapons. I'll merge the two wraidskin articles and any others like them. While they are defiantly related to the species their named for as of yet I've not found anything stating that those species are responsible for making them so unless anyone has found otherwise I was going to write that articles in the same manner as those already created saying that the relationship is unknown. I have several other issues on these clothing articles including which infobox to use and whether or not to create articles on characters clothing like Vette's padded jacket.
