Gran Turismo trophy pages[edit]

Hi, good job on all the GT5 pages you've been creating and working on lately. I would suggest that we combine all the individual trophy pages either into a single "Trophy guide" page or a trophy guide section below the trophy table on the Trophies page. With most of them only containing a sentence or two of "how-to", we don't want to create 59 unlinked pages in the guide unnecessarily. This is how I did it for the Assassin's Creed II page to give you an idea, although there's no set standard. Let me know what you think and I'll help you move them wherever you find most convenient. Thanks, and keep up the great work! — najzereT 09:28, 28 December 2010 (CST)

Thanks for the welcome. Not sure about how best to handle the trophy pages - some require no explanation at all, as the official description covers everything, some require just a sentence or two to clarify something and a small number will require a full guide on how to achieve the objective. Would it be best to just have a page for those full guides, and have everything else as a section on the Trophies page? Toivonen 12:36, 28 December 2010 (CST)
That sounds like it could work. Another alternative is to put the short ones right in the description cell in the trophies table, like in the Ghostbusters guide. Depending on what the larger trophy guides are about, you may be able to just link to the appropriate section of the guide. For instance, I wouldn't expect to see a full trophy guide for the ones where you complete a license or series of events—how to do so should be covered in the guide already. You're the expert at the game though, so just do whatever you think is needed for a reader to get the trophy. If you find you just a have a few that will require a lot of room, you may also be able to just pare down the info a bit, like I think may be possible with the Penniless trophy write-up. Let me know how you want to approach it and I'll do what I can to integrate the existing trophy pages so the edit history remains intact. Thanks! — najzereT 22:02, 28 December 2010 (CST)

Image categorization[edit]

When uploading images, please make sure to categorise them using the correct image categories and the guide-specific category, i.e. [[Category:Game Name images]]. Please see our image policy for more details. Thanks for helping to keep our images neat! Paco (talk) 18:23, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Reminder. Please add the correct categories so that another user, like myself, does not have to. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 16:20, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
