Talk:Dixie Kong's Photo Album

From the Super Mario Wiki

I don't remember this being in the game... Fawfulfury65

Well, the title is actually conjecture, forgot to add that, but IGN labels them as Dixie Kong's Photos'. Pikmins.jpg BluePikminKong497 00:29, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
I really don't feel that this is an important enough topic to have an article... Fawfulfury65

TPP: Merge all of the DKC3 Dixie's album group pages into this page[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

merge 7-3

To be clear, this proposes that these pages:

be merged and redirected into Dixie Kong's Photo Album. The merged page would look like this .

The DKC3 enemy group articles are very short and have no additional content that could be added. This page is the perfect master-page for explaining the details of each of the groups, and allows needless redundancy ("This group is from Dixie's Photo Album, from DKC3, ...") to be avoided in their descriptions. The groups do not appear to merit their own page separate from the photo album.

Proposer: The Retro Gamer (talk)
Deadline: 23:59, 30 April 2018 GMT

Support[edit]

  1. The Retro Gamer (talk): My own nomination.
  2. Glowsquid (talk) - The "enemy group" pages are repetitive and convey basically no useful information of their own. Never liked 'em.
  3. Toadette the Achiever (talk) I'd say merge all of them except Brothers Bear, which appears to be a regular species name instead.
  4. Waluigi Time (talk) Per proposal.
  5. TheFlameChomp (talk) I support merging the articles, as the information could easily fit on this article, and a large amount of the articles are taken up by galleries, which are already found on this article.
  6. LudwigVon (talk) Per all.
  7. Yoshi the SSM (talk) Per all.

Oppose[edit]

  1. LUIGIRULES71 (talk) i Don't Like This idea...at all... Why Merge This One While The DKC2 ones Stay The Same? Why Not Remove The info on Dixie Kong's Photo Album and Leave Only The names? Plus i Think Dudim Phreykunoutonthis is Less Deserving of a Page Due To Having only one species in it. The album is simply a character cast. We Don't Have Kremling Kuthroats Merged With The Credits, Why Only The DKC3 Ones?
  2. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) You know what? I prefer official groupings to get their own pages. Expansion and rewriting might just be the better option for these.
  3. Niiue (talk) Per Doc.

Comments[edit]

Is this just in reference to the DKC3 ones, the DKC3 and DKC2 ones, or all including any other existing ones? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:30, 16 April 2018 (EDT)

This proposal is just in reference to the DKC3 ones. Now that you mention it, it may be more productive to make a general enemy groups proposal. But those merges are slightly less straightforward. --The Retro Gamer 00:35, 16 April 2018 (EDT)
All right, well how about the Crucial Kongs and friends groups? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:40, 16 April 2018 (EDT)
What about them? They're just names, just like all the others. They're worth a mention on the appropriate pages, but not much else. --The Retro Gamer 00:54, 16 April 2018 (EDT)
The proposal title says "enemy groups." Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:24, 16 April 2018 (EDT)
Edited. --The Retro Gamer 01:48, 16 April 2018 (EDT)
Yes, but.....Crucial Kongs still aren't enemies.... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:57, 16 April 2018 (EDT)
Technically correct. Edited --The Retro Gamer 02:01, 16 April 2018 (EDT)
Thank you. Now I'll think a bit on this, as I can easily see both sides... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:02, 16 April 2018 (EDT)

Another thing: will this affect the enemy classes from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, such as Projectilia Ritebakatchia? MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 05:56, 16 April 2018 (EDT)

I asked that right above, when I said "or all including any other existing ones." I had alreadly brought up Dudim Phreykunoutonthis on his talk page, so he knew about them when I asked. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 06:15, 16 April 2018 (EDT)
To reference my reply, "This proposal is just in reference to the DKC3 ones." My proposal previously suffered from a lack of clarity, but now I've clarified it's specific to DKC3 photo album groups. If this proposal goes through, I may start a more general enemy groups proposal, but that's not what I'm currently suggesting here. --The Retro Gamer 07:53, 16 April 2018 (EDT)

@Toadette the Achiever I didn't actually intend for Brothers Bear to be part of the proposal, that just slipped in from a copy-paste error. I've corrected the proposal. --The Retro Gamer 10:19, 16 April 2018 (EDT)

I just wonder if we can recreate the categories as...well, categories (size permitting), since we do so for the DKC2 enemy classes... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:42, 16 April 2018 (EDT)

I don't see a real use-case for the categories. While they do group together characters by type to a certain extent, the categories would have so few members. In fact, Aquatic Attackers is listed as the example in MarioWiki:Categories#Size and scope of how "small lists can simply be placed on an article that's central to the subject at hand". The example page link in Size and scope will need to updated, but the same principle still applies: these enemy group designations are exclusive to Dixie Kong's Photo Album making the photo album "central to the subject at hand". --The Retro Gamer 00:00, 17 April 2018 (EDT)

@LuigiRules71 I said the Dudim one because it was the only one I could fully remember off the top of my head TBH. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:20, 17 April 2018 (EDT)

@LUIGIRULES71: This proposal does not include the DKC2 enemy groups because there's not an obvious consolidated article for them (a possibility is to create "Enemy groups of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest"). As for Dudim, it very well may be less-deserving of a page, but that's not related to this proposal; if that doesn't deserve to be its own page, make a proposal to merge or delete it, don't oppose another proposal just because of inconsistency. Wikis are by their nature inconsistent in certain ways, and it's up to us editors to define the most useful standard. --The Retro Gamer 01:42, 25 April 2018 (EDT)

@Doc von Schmeltwick: The thing is, there's not really any more viable content that could be added, because the enemy groups are only referenced in one scene; they aren't really that important. It's not like the enemy groups won't redirect to Dixie Kong's Photo Album anyway, so I don't think there's any fear of lost information here. --The Retro Gamer 20:48, 29 April 2018 (EDT)
