Merging articles[edit source]

Hi! I do appreciate merging articles like this: However, this creates problems when the Solomon's General Store/Hairstyles article was left as it is, as now we'd have two articles to maintain and once they diverge, it'll be a pain to figure out which is right. I have fixed this case by having the latter just transclude what is on Hairstyles article, so we only have to maintain Hairstyles. Just thought to let you know so we can avoid this in the future.

That was a small oversight I made whilst moving the hairstyles out of the SGS page as they will most likely be hairstyles added to the Marketplace and not all of the hairstyles are part of SGS anyway. Thanks for this, I thought I ended up removing the SGS/Hairstyles but I guess I didn't x) Wand of the praesul.pngZ o w o Erethdor's grimoire.png 18:50, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, they certainly need to be covered by Hairstyles article somehow. Although it'd be much better if each hairstyle (especially ones sold as MTX) would have its own article with a fitting infobox, and we could just do some DPL magic to collect them all together. Right now I don't know how I should note that Blade Trap Cut is a free item, for instance. If it had an article, it'd be easy to just plonk the note in. Thingummywut (talk) 23:08, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
From what I understand from when I was told to not use individual pages for each hairstyle and to have them all on one Hairstyle page, the "premium" styles just mean that they can have 2 different colours, which most of the new hairstyles can, so just put the price to Free or 0 in the cost if it's a free hairstyle that isn't the default. But yeah this might need to be changed, I was just advised by an admin (can't remember who) that they shouldn't have their own page Wand of the praesul.pngZ o w o Erethdor's grimoire.png 05:41, 2 August 2021 (UTC).
I've also had similar discussions in the past. Sadly that's not the only thing that "premium hairstyles" mean. They appear in a specific place in the interface, have varying price information with changes in the history, have been offered as freebies in the past etc etc. Just like any other override, really, so I don't get the justification why they shouldn't have articles. Anyway, I don't feel strongly enough about this to open a formal discussion or anythings, so if admins feel like this situation is good, I'll just work with that. It's still important that there is a single point of truth for premium hairstyles so that it's easy to maintain their information, and after your change that place seems to be Hairstyles.
