Forums > Senate Hall archive > SH:Video games in Wookieepedia tabs

So I noticed Wookieepedia's top tabs, in the Star Wars section we have: Star Wars saga, Standalone films and television, Prequel Trilogy characters, etc. I believe we should add one more for Video games which, undoubtedly, bring many readers here. It may be hard to compile a small list for them, but I'm of the opinion they certainly deserve the attention... and love by getting a section there. What say you?

On a side note, I believe most notable games at this moment are Fallen Order, SWTOR, Force Unleashed, Battlefront, KOTOR, and a couple others. Winterz (talk) 22:10, November 25, 2019 (UTC)

  • Talk to Cav. He's sort of de facto in charge of that right now. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 22:13, November 25, 2019 (UTC)
    • The issue is one of real estate. Each drop down only has room for seven (I believe) initial entries (Star Wars saga, etc), and each entry then gets ten sub-entries (the films, etc). Since the films and television series are the most visible media, they were selected to cover as much information as possible (and even then, there is a lot of stuff left out). To add a video game section means removing something else. The other issue is what makes video games more deserving of a spot on the navigation bar than say, the books or comics? Since there's no fair way to decide, the focus was put on the film and television entries in the franchise, which are traditionally what the majority of visitors are looking for when they visit the site. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 00:45, November 26, 2019 (UTC)
      • I see your point. It's hard to choose fairly considering the limited space. However, we're talking about video games that net millions upon millions of dollars. Video games that took more to develop than some Saga films. We're talking about products that have millions of players each. The video game industry isn't what it was, and shouldn't be underestimated. Novels and comics aren't comparable. Games have been doing more for Star Wars (and by extension Wookieepedia) than most animated shows and even some films. At the very least, notable video game characters like Revan and now Cal Kestis should be on a list up there. This is my perspective. Winterz (talk) 05:01, November 26, 2019 (UTC)
        • Relatedly, I've wondered why the Trash compactor isn't one of the items under Community > Forums. Asithol (talk) 08:00, December 4, 2019 (UTC)
