I suppose that seems fine, as long as you specify that they are referring to the Gunvolt verse. For example: "Eden (Gunvolt)"

I think that he seems more well known as Waldo, but I can create redirect pages for "Where's Wally?" and "Wally".

@Mindovin

Thank you for helping out.

Me and Promestein each have a Bot account that can handle category renaming via automatised scripts though.

@Antvasima; thanks for handling it. I wasn't able to answer your question in time, but I was just going to say that the category was already deleted.

Well, the redirects that I created should be enough to find him during searches in any case.

Is alright if unlocked the Shin Megami Tensei Tier 2 profiles that don't have Tier 1 rating? The last time in the tier 2's unlocking thread that unlocked most of the uncontroversial Tier 2 profiles, I was against the majority of Shin Megami Tensei's pages being unlocked because many were under revision but currently the revisions are roughly done now.

From my opinions and I think some supporters' opinions, the verse is not that controversial but I am willing to wait for inputs on the subject.

So just there is no confusion on the matter as this point just came up, I will unlock many the pages temporarily as I got a request about about opening them from an accepted CRT.

So, the topic of the non-tier 1 pages being unlocked is still up for debate.

I am not sure. The tier 2 SMT pages may be too controversial to keep open, but perhaps I am overly cautious. More staff input would be appreciated.

Alright, I think I can contact some staffs, in general, later today or tomorrow.

Done, but that isn't the sort of thing that you should ask here.

Then the description on it probably could be more specific to mention that

Also, there´s still the other issue with the Negation/Power Null categories

Negation seems to be a wider concept. Also, both are very large categories, so they shouldn't be replaced without very thorough consideration, and strictly handled by a bot if it is deemed absolutely necessary.
Negation redirects to Power Nullification, and considering "Power Nullification Users" is far more used because of the sheer name contrary to what you would otherwise think, I think it would be a good idea to just merge the former to the latter with a bot.

You can ask Promestein if she is willing to replace the Negation Users category with Power Nullification Users. I am currently very busy and going to bed soon.

I don't think SMT is that controversial; At most I can see YHVH continuing locked, and even then, he is a Tier 1 page, so that'd happen anyways.

I would like to have this page reviewed before creation, as the weapon's previous page was deleted for unknown reasons.
If this page is accepted, it would apply to all COG Gears of War profiles
I would say you can still improved the pages following the Common Editing Mistakes guideline as some mistakes are present. Scorching a large portion of a planet's surface is usually at High 6-A; if it calculation is not possible, it think it would good to a scan, video linka or Statements providing the justifications for the High 6-A feat- this point may be nitpicky.

Otherwise, the page looks fine.

The Hammer of Dawn Counterattack is a well known event in the Gears of War verse. To get exact and actual quotes and statements would require me to find or make scans of Jacinto's Remnant, which I don't have currently (I did have the book, but lost it during a move)

Only the tier 2 SMT pages in that case. Although it is probably simpler if I handle it with my automated script.

You can ask Promestein if she agrees and is willing to handle it.

It´s obviously a basic category, "Healers" was aroudn first, before than "Healing Users", but because of that, the former has far more pages indexed, so I´m not sure to which of the two it should be merged, but because of the "standard" sort of name, I would go with just merging the former with the latter.

Agreed. Healers is fine to keep and has a few thousand entries.

I cannot do anything more to remove that category than I have already done. The Fandom settings are not perfect.

Could I ask Promestein then? I´m sure she was able to delete an empty category before.

That category was never created by writing in it, so it also cannot be deleted.

Fair enought, thanks for the input.

However, in that case, something can just be written on it so it can be deleted.

I suppose, but I doubt that it would cause any difference for if it is featured as an option when adding categories.
