Why Categories?Edit

I don't have a problem with this project as such. (With the caveat that those transcripts might constitute copyright infringement; but I am not expert on the matter. This would be something for NicJ to look into.) But I don't understand why the subcategories were created. The transcripts are clearly not a dynamic category, but a fixed information. It could be argued that the multiple transcripts for one individual game (or the Animated Series) should be one single large article. But even when breaking them up by episode, mission, or whatever, the number of sub-articles isn't going to change. Typically, the media main article will already provide a list or rundown of those sub-articles, and link to the transcripts diretly. There is simply no need for these categories that I can see?

(Bump.) I am still at a loss as to why a category format was chosen. The only thing that's keeping me from deleting the categories and reworking the article structure into one master article per game plus transcript sub-articles is that esteemed co-editors such as BrokenMnemonic and Dmon are working on the project. So maybe I'm missing something? Frabby (talk) 06:33, 24 November 2018 (EST)
