[DONE] retire in/active character tags on Wiki
#1
Hey all,

I've noticed that the In/active Characters tags are frequently out-of-date on the Wiki. Since this information is already readily available through the Game Stats and pack ranks pages, I was wondering if folks would be interested in retiring the tags. I've stopped tagging pages with them since they're redundant and impossible to keep up-to-date and I think that the existing tags are descriptive enough.

Thoughts?

Definitely on board with this. ;) Perhaps we can replace in/active with an "alive" tag? Since we have a "Dead Characters" tag already, and that seems like something easier to keep up to date. That would also eliminate the need for the very messy characters list which will never be accurate. @_@

Yeaaah, I always thought it was pretty superfluous anyway, lol.

Dead/alive much easier to track. ;)

Ooh, yes, I like the Dead/ Alive distinction! That is a great way to organize it :D Awesome possum, this just means an Admin would have to edit the templates so they no longer have [[Characters/Active Characters]] and are [[Characters/Alive Characters]] instead. (Gives Admins puppy eyes)

This is official, tagged both categories with deprecation instruction things and removed Active/Inactive references from guidelines. Let us know if there are any other references to these categories in the Guidelines, and please feel free to begin removing these categories from character pages. Thanks ^^

Active characters tag was retired by Raze. O: We can get rid of inactives, too! It is a longer list but we can do it. 83
#7
HAHHAHAHA IT IS DONE
#8
On the characters page (http://wiki.soulsrpg.com/index.php?n=Cha...Characters), the links in the instruction should probably be changed? Since they still lead to the Active/Inactive pages? I dunno where to point them though. xD

Also, does Sangi'lak count as defunct now/should be put in the Defunct Pack type of Categories?
