  1. Yes for splitting A&P into A and P, but I'm not convinced on the "Characteristics" h2.
  2. Battle to Gameplay is a fix I can't deny, but I don't think this solves all our problems in regards to putting things in Other Apps or in Gameplay. Because Other Apps covers more than just Gameplay but also mainly covers gameplay unless there is also a story in which case the Other Apps section probably links to a subpage.
  3. No. Your points about the TOC and not using things below h4s are just random personal preference and both HTML and MediaWiki disagrees with you.
  4. So there are four types of appearance, "Appearances" (first-tier scope), "Non-FF Appearances", "Other Appearances", and in-pop culture. Character articles are different, where "Other Appearances" actually refers to other titles in first-tier scope. This confusion has gone on for ages. But In Pop Culture would contain things on Final Fantasy in popular culture surely?
  5. Whywouldwedothat?

And a disagree to splitting off TFF for reasons I will explain in the sub-section. JBed (talk) 21:23, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

(psst, the two people who commented on the "Characteristics" h2- one said it should be "Profile" and include other things, the other said they don't think there should be a "h2". Another user gave an example where they omitted a h2 and used App and Per as their own h2s) JBed (talk) 18:23, November 10, 2014 (UTC)

Subpages

I agree with subpage for appearances outside their original series that have a story, regardless of gameplay. If the character only has gameplay information then I would not subpage. JBed (talk) 21:23, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

Subpages and MoS Following

The existence of Story and Personality sections hinges on the character in the game having both of those things. Appearance sections still work, though as demonstrated with Dissidia they can end up doubling up as Costume/Palette swap (that's the term that I seem to use for fighting games even if it's more than a palette swap) sections for gameplay goodness.

The Character structure is meant to be all-encompassing. Though with these subpages, characters parent articles (e.g. Cloud Strife) should not bother mentioning Dissidia and Theatrhythm in their Appearance/Personality sections unless it differs from the main incarnation. Like if Cloud wears a pretty pink dress in Dissidia, then a brief mention of him wearing a pretty pink dress would be worth putting in the Appearance section. Cloud's red SOLDIER outfit from Ehrgeiz and Vincent outfit from KH are real examples but both of those games aren't in scope. --The parent article still have the job of covering Cloud in-general even if most of the article is about their original appearance series. 195.195.234.235 12:43, January 22, 2015 (UTC)
