Events prefix

Hi! I have a suggestion: Could we add a prefix for events in their page link? For example: Events/Girl-Talk instead of Girl-Talk? This would help in 2 important ways:

  • It keeps event pages grouped together
  • It prevents possible overlap with other page names

I see that Events/* is now used for some meta pages, but I think we could find some other solution for them. Also, I'm aware that this would break existing links (unless redirects are added), which is why it should be done soon if we're gonna do it, before the game becomes larger & more popular.

Also, I think this could be added to other large categories, like Locations and Characters.

Actually, now that I think about it more, there is one big downside: it makes linking more elaborate: If you want to display the simple name, you will have to use the [[Link|Title]] format, instead of just [[Link]]... --AlexRaylight (talk) 17:27, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

There are a few positive and negatives on this.
For one, it would be in line with the current structure. Characters are structured as Characters/ with redirects. It would be inline with how they're done. For another, I fear that the overhead would be extremely. Most would go and type the event name on the search-bar or link text either way. And yes, it would require re-working all the linkings again. I personally prefer it this way: duplicate names get an ambiguous page to point correctly, like Haruka.
I feel like this would be quite a longer discussion to have, though. I do agree though that, if we are doing this, we need to look into it very soon. --Thanathros (talk) 20:36, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

I just remembered that I added the category to the event template, which is the base of all the events. I feel like this does help tracking a lot. --Thanathros (talk) 20:40, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
