Being in the Filters category

I figured that we should talk about this instead of starting an edit war over such a silly thing.

You (Artfunkel) claim that since this is a mod specific entity it should not be in "the main list". However, I disagree on multiple levels. First of all, there being a "main list" to begin with. It is a category. Second, there is the fact that we apparently have a decent number of pages about this mod. And third, the category already has several entities that are game specific.

My reasoning here is that we should list everything and let the user ignore things that doesn't apply to them. The alternative would be to have multiple categories. We could use subcategories. But how big would the category be? For DB it would be a single entry. That is bellow the silliness threshold. TF 2 is also bellow the silliness threshold. There is not enough entities specific to any game to warrant any sub categories.

In conclusion, I think that we should include this entity in the category.--Henke37 07:31, 2 August 2011 (PDT)

TF2 entities are clearly very different cases from entities of mods for which nobody, unless I am mistaken, has ever made a custom map. This page is already accessible via DreamBall's general category and there it should stay. If DreamBall had an active mapping community I would have no problem with it being in the main list global category, but since it doesn't its presence there is cruft. --Artfunkel 13:04, 2 August 2011 (PDT)
