I've got a few concerns about this category. I think that the top description should be gone, except for a brief summary like "these are the characters of the Asterix books" or something simple like that. I suggest also that we shouldn't have the sub-category Druids, but we should instead have Gauls, Romans and Other Nationalities. In addition, we should have the sub-categories Main Recurring Characters, Minor Recurring Characters, One-off Main Characters and One-off Minor Characters. (If you can think of better names that'd be cool.)
I think this would be easier and more efficient than writing all characters manually by their nationalities. Do you guys agree? Puggsoy 13:57, March 24, 2011 (UTC)
- I have removed everything from the category page that should not have been there. I have created the sub-categories "Animal characters", "Pirates", "Britons", "Goths" and "Egyptians". Categories for major and minor characters would be a good idea. --Simon Peter Hughes 08:16, April 2, 2011 (UTC)
- Do you prefer that? I think that the Animal Characters is a good idea, but I was thinking that sub-categories for each nationality is a bit specific. For example, the only Lustinian I can remember is that one on Spartikas's ship in Asterix and Obelix All At Sea. Also, I can't recall any named Hispanians other than Huevos Y Bacon and Pepe. But if you think it's better then it isn't really that big a problem, as long as we don't forget any countries.
- But I also wanted to say, in addition to putting characters into their fitting sub-category, maybe we should also add them to the Characters category. I've seen it in the Dragon Ball Wiki, and that works quite well, that way people can browse for characters without knowing their nationalities.
- What do you think? PuggsoyTalk 11:18, April 2, 2011 (UTC)
- Well, maybe "Britons", "Goths" and "Egyptians" are not necessary categories. Perhaps apart from "Gauls", "Romans", "Animal characters" and "Pirates" they should just be listed as characters. I don't think it's necessary to list a characeter under "Gauls" and "Characters", because "Gauls" is a sub-section of "Characters". That kind of categorizing is discouraged on some wikis (but not on others, I know).
- I'm about to create the category "Female characters" for the handful of them.
