      Just noting the time period of when the character or series was introduced.

      Searched through some of my most respected online databases and wikis, and most of them category systems comparable to ours, so I do take back statement about calling clogged. And my other point weren't strong enough to stand on its own.

      Personally don't think those are needed. The series pages should already mention dates of said series in the synopsis and it just adds to our already clogged category system.

      I have to agree with Linaxt here. Unless we add those categories exclusively to the Series pages, I think they aren't necessary.

      A comment quoting my comment, just as I deleted it, man I am lucky. Still don't like the idea of those categories, but me calling the category system "clogged" was false and I don't have much of an argument outside of the first one.

      Personally don't mind any of those ideas, as long as we don't include genres as action(with the nature of this site so would pretty much all series have that genre), and medium specific genres(i.e "platformer" or "shounen").

      I make polls mainly to avoid having the same problems as the VS Debate board. People are more likely to express their opinions if they don't have to type anything. Of course, I will always try to explain my reasoning whenever I feel like it's necessary.

      Everybody doesn't need give their opinion in matters as these. The only thing we need is one person to give an idea and a couple of admins to either affirm or deny the idea. And that person in turn can try to defend their idea(or any other who feels up for a discussion for that matter). This isn't like the Debating threads, this isn't made to just discussions. We should have discussions if we can't come to an agreement, and if those discussions ain't doing it; we let the majority decide.

      Sure.

      Btw, on the topic of the nationality categories, I have had a pet peeve of them for a while now. There seem to be a lot countries that are arbitrarily group together, while other countries get their own category. The North American countries are group together in a single category, the scandinavian countries are, The Koreas(which I get) are and the entirety Africa is too. What exactly makes these countries not significant enough to get their own categories, while those that have is?

      It's basically because (for example) African characters aren't very abundant in fiction, and the few African characters tend to be from a wide variety of countries. I think making a category for just one character would be a bit pointless.

      However, I have to say that I did want to divide the North American categories for the USA and Canada, because Canadian characters are pretty common.

      I can understand that, though even with that so am I pretty sure there will still be nationality categories with a scarce amount of profiles belong to it. Might be because I am from said country(so I have a small inherent bias), but I know of more characters able to have a profile here with Swedish nationality than any from Vietnam, Iceland or Peru.

    • Actually, when thinking about it, I think the Shounen Jump category could stay. Because the set of characters and series in SJ are quite bond to the Shounen Jump label. When you think of Naruto, you'd probably think of him as a "Shounen Jump character" way before you think of him as a "Shueisha character". Also so do the series in Shounen Jump get a lot of cross over games and cross over special, so these series are kind of semented together. For those reasons on top of the fact that I really don't want the job of removing all the listings of the Shounen Jump category, I think the SJ category could stay while only including characters, series and items on Shounen Jump Weekly specifically.

    • It sounds fine but

      Would characters that can transform into other characters be included in that category? There's also the fact that sometimes he main charactes end up being extra bosses whether it's in an extra mode or a sequel, would they be included as well?

      What do you mean with transforming into other characters?

      And don't see why they shouldn't be included. A boss is still a boss, even if they are playable characters as well. Being a boss doesn't necessarily mean they are an antagonist in game's narrative.

    • By that I mean someone like Shang Tsung, someone who can fight on their own but still transforms into other characters in ame, would that be considered a boss encounter for the other character?

      I'd guess not, seeing as those characters are merely imitate and not the boss themself.
