Delete Krew_of_Kthon please, since that was a misspelling? I already renamed it.

Done.

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.

Thanks!

Hmm... How about removing the teams that have sub-categories from the general "Category:Superhero_Teams", leaving only the sub-category, in that case?

crystalhall.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Superhero_Teams

I could do it, it's only about ~30 pages, but not sure if it's easier for the bot to do it...

That's a tough one, I can see the arguments for both positions.

How about moving "Dr._Bender" to "Branwen"?

And "Category:Dr._Bender" as well?

...

Oh, and Drunkfu > Shia.

Basically, changing an author's name is possible (we have done so in the past, notably for Heather) but I hesitate to do so other as following a request by the author. I don't presume to second-guess their preferences regarding this.

In Bender/Branwen's case, I'm not even sure what her preferences are in the subject. While she is going by Branwen now, "Dr. Bender" is fairly gender-agnostic and it's unclear if she wants to abandon that pen-name entirely.

In Drunkfu/Shia's case, well, the name change appears to have happened after their departure from Whateley. I don't know their motives for the change. It is within the realm of possibility that they want to establish a new pen name dissociated from their older works, and if so, a wholesale change would go contrary to their desires.

Anyway, the role of the wiki is to be a secondary resource, following the practice of the main site. AFAIK, their older works in this site are still listed as "Dr. Bender" and "Drunkfu." Adopting a different naming scheme on the wiki, even if more "updated", might not be helpful.

...

Should we categorize authors by nation? Like we do with Wasamon (Japan) and MageOhki (America)? Or should we leave the nation categories for In-Universe things?

I think both were born in the US, though MageOhki has spent considerable time in Japan. Is the goal to note that their writing may culturally fall under "own voices" or to tag their preferred settings?

What category should the various species be under?

Sidhe, Faerie, Isokist, Dijinn... I guess "The Universe"... OR do we make a Species category?

Mutants aren't a Species, so that's why they're in Concepts, instead of The Universe?

Should we have a Human page??

Sthri may be one extraterrestrial material plane species.

Djinn and similar entities from (one of) the terrestrial planes of Fire would technically be Demons.
(Demons are in the Terminology category)
