I noticed while doing some reading that included Fairy Tale Part 3, Killerwatt, among other pages with the epilepsy warning template at the top of the page, that there wasn't a category for content with such a warning. A category for the content that contains this warning would be helpful for those with the conditions find all of the: areas, cutscenes, features, minigames, or quests of the game that could cause an episode. While I myself do not have Photosensitive Epilepsy, I do have 5 close friends with the condition and I myself suffer from Migraines which, even when mild enough to be considered a severe headache, I develop extreme photo sensitivity that content with this warning is enough to set off nausea.

I will boil my reasons down to 3 bulletpoints since my mind is scrambled due to a migraine: 1)Organization 2)Making it Easier to find the pages through the Category page among the many RSWiki pages. 3)You find one of the pages within the Category, you've found them all.

In Summary: A Proposal: Addition of an Epilepsy category to the existing epilepsywarning template. For reasons of making it easier for those with the condition find all of the places in-game they need to be careful of. Could also be used as a means of tracking use/misuse of the template.

Code - The code to do this is {{mainonly|[[Category:Epilepsy stuff category name]]}}. I'd be happy to add it, but what would you call such a category concisely? The template is featured on both location pages and quest pages, so "seizure-inducing areas" or "... quests" wouldn't work. And "seizure-inducing articles" would make it look like the article itself induces a seizure... Suggestions? JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 18:24, January 8, 2017 (UTC)

Closed - I've created the requested category, using the name Category:Content that can induce seizures as suggested by Cam, without waiting for further discussion, since this would fall under RS:BB. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 19:04, January 10, 2017 (UTC)
