I'm thinking of integrating the categories in the Ace Attorney wiki with the games on Neoseeker, but right now the categories are not specific enough to do that the way we normally do it (which is to do something like Game 1 Characters, Game 2 Characters, etc.). Is it suitable to attach each category like "Characters","Detectives", or other categories to every single game in the series? Do they apply like that? Or do we have to start creating a Character category for each game?

You mean making a category like "Characters in Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations" etc? Yeah that seems easy enough to do, I don't mind going through and editing them. What should I call those categories precisely, so they integrate with the profiles?

Hmm... right now there's some discrepancy in how people do it.

In Final Fantasy they did this:
Characters (FFI)
Characters (FFII)
Characters (FFIII)
Characters (FFIV)
Characters (FFIX)
Characters (FFT)
Characters (FFTA)
Characters (FFV)
Characters (FFVI)
Characters (FFVII)

In GTA we've been doing it like this:

Characters in GTA: Liberty City Stories
Characters in GTA: San Andreas
Characters in GTA: Vice City
Characters in GTA: Vice City Stories
Characters in GTA IV
Characters in Grand Theft Auto III

but in some games we've been doing it like this:

Gamename Characters

If the Ace Attorney games have abbreviations that fans will recognize then the way FF and Resident Evil do it works good I think because it looks concise.

Don't remove the larger "Characters" category however, instead make the individual Character categories subcategories of Characters, and then categorize each characters as both.


Characters and Characters (GameA)

To do the integration you have to edit the category as follows here:

An example is this category in GTA:

And the result is seen in the right hand side of this page here:

I can help out with that part if you want.

I just integrated the Characters category in Shenmue to the games:

For that one I just integrated both games to the category, but technically since some characters only show up in I or II if we broke it up the integration is just "cleaner" (its not a "must have" but a "nice to have"

I integrated one category here:

Category:Characters_in_AAI:ME I think I did that correctly. test
