Wiki refering to two pages with same name?

Post by FatMcK »

Hi,

just started to work a bit on the wiki. Recently changed the flamethrower ammo recipe and removed the obsolete information that its used to make land mines. Then I wanted to edit the land mines recipe which now uses explosives in its recipe.

It seems 'Explosives' as intermediate product is not existing as page. But there is a page named 'Explosives' which refers to explosives as research item. So how should this be handled correctly?

On Wikipedia, this would be handled by adding a category in brackets. So you'd have Explosives_(Research) and Explosives_(Item).
I don't have OCD, I have CDO. It's the same, but with the letters in the correct order.

Thanks. Looks like there are already some research pages with research in brackets. I think I will have a look at this.

Another thought:

Plural category pages: Vehicles, Transport belts, Splitters, Inserters...

Singular: Assembling machine, Mining drill, ...

I read this now for > a year and I think the plural form is better for the category pages, because it allows us to have two pages: Inserter and Inserters and so we avoid other kinds of naming problems.
So I think I can say, that the plural form should be the category page - even if this is not a recommended wiki-naming. :)
