Sub-Categories for Images

I decided to take on RollerCoaster Tycoon as my next walkthrough project, but when I was about to upload some more images, I noticed that the image gallery has two subcategories. I've never seen this before. Is that allowed? And if it isn't, how can I remove them? Antwan 09:35, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

It's to further help organize large sets of images. Category:MapleStory images does the same thing as well. -- Prod (talk) 18:21, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
I'm not staff so you can dismiss this as unsolicited advice but, since a category displays 200 images per page, I'd only use the existing subcategories or add new ones if the guide is likely to require more than 200-400 images. If this isn't the case, then you can ignore them and move existing images to the main category by editing each subcategory image (currently 26 in total) to replace [[Category:RollerCoaster Tycoon ride images]] or [[Category:RollerCoaster Tycoon maps]] with [[Category:RollerCoaster Tycoon images]]. Once those categories are unused, you can edit them to add {{Delete}} to mark them for deletion. Onderduiker (talk) 18:56, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

NES Classic Edition

A user made this change. This seems like it should be it's own system, since it's completely standalone and connects directly to the TV. -- Prod (talk) 16:51, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

That begs the question of whether standalone, non-expandable systems are systems in the traditional sense at all. An arguable alternative is that the whole system could be treated as a compilation cartridge with no system at all. I think the footnote is worth leaving on the Category page, linking to a main game page similar to Namco Museum or something similar. Procyon 17:46, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
I'd treat them similar to compilation disks - only difference is that it's a hardware device rather than a collection of software. --Sigma 7 (talk) 01:19, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
Maybe we should have Category:Single-use systems? That way it's clear you don't actually need an NES to play the games. -- Prod (talk) 20:17, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

I've crated Category:Dedicated systems to match what wikipedia calls them. I've also created NES Classic Edition as a compilation style game, so I think it's a decent combination of what was suggested. -- Prod (talk) 00:56, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

reporting bugged pages

Hello, I want to report that this page is bugged Seikima II/Secrets. It says I'm not allowed to edit the page...not that I would know how to fix this anyway. The table cuts off the edge of the "zone 3" images and the images for "zone 4" aren't visible at all. I'm on a PC and this happens across my three browsers Chrome, FF, and IE. I have whitelisted your site from my ad blockers. I've never been on a wiki before so I'm sorry if I posted in the wrong place! I came here for that one game :\ Seikimatsu (talk) 04:22, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing it out! I've cleaned it up. -- Prod (talk) 06:20, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
