Main Series[edit]

Why is there a 'main series' list in the video games section? Just because they have the 'Dungeon's and Dragon's' name in the title despite having mostly nothing to do with one another? Seems rather odd. Most the games have D&D in the titles on the box somewhere so shouldn't they all be the 'main series'? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.32.30.248 (talk) 20:53, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Link to Creature description, not the General D&D page for the creature.[edit]

I'm not sure if this is the case for all creatures, but it is for Halfling. If Halfling (D&D) does not have the complete information, what's the point of including it? 92.20.206.252 (talk) 15:28, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

I fixed the link for halfling. 129.33.19.254 (talk) 16:31, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Gold Box[edit]

Under the video games, I'd like to see the Gold box games have their own subcategory, under which would be the Krynn, Pools of Radiance and the Savage Frontier sagas along with Unlimited Adventures.

After all, it was the game series that defined AD&D for a generation of gamers. – T.V., 05:49, 23 January 2014 (UTC)  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.175.192.20 (talk)

Controversies Placement[edit]

It comes to my attention that the first article that the template shows (i.e., ignoring the D&D article) is the Controversies one. I don't believe that should be the first article. I'm a new editor, and still don't know completely the guidelines for templates, but I think it should start with the articles that best describe D&D, and end with the public reaction and criticism, like articles do. If we go to the Dungeons & Dragons article, we see that the Controversies subsection is the last one of the Game History section, and the Sources and influences, Editions and Gen Con are all presented before Controversies. Personally, I believe Controversies doesn't even belong to the template, and if it does, it should go right in the end of General. Is there any reason I'm ignoring for this article to be the first one in the template? Happy E. Milk (talk) 11:59, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

It seems that the current ordering is just alphabetical, and it's listed first for that reason, basically by happenstance. If you think that some other ordering would be preferable, then I'd encourage you to be WP:BOLD and change the order. Personally, I don't think the order matters and am content regardless, though I would definitely disagree with removing the controversies page from the template entirely.

I had completely ignored the alphabetical order. I don't believe it's appropriate for the General row. I would reorder it myself if I could, but the template is locked. Happy E. Milk (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 14:56, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
Oh, so it is. My apologies, I hadn't noticed. In that case, your choices generally would be either to make an edit request or -- since this particular template is only semi-protected -- simply to wait until your account is autoconfirmed at which point you'll be able to edit it yourself. In this particular case, my recommendation would be to leave a comment on this talk page stating exactly what changes you want to make, including the exact order you want to change to. Then, if nobody objects, simply make the change yourself once your account is autoconfirmed. Lowercaserho (talk) 00:13, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
