RE: Amani Bear ambiguity

We don't make template pages ambiguity pages, so it would only be a redirect page. Which why bother with...

I do agree, you shouldn't have had to create User_BearGeneric in the first place... taming a bear is not an accomplishment. Now I'm not going to tell you that you can't make templates that involve taming pets, but since {{User Bear}} is an accomplishment it will stay where it is. Also since nothing links to User_BearAmaniWar, then yes its fine to delete it. User:Coobra/Sig3 18:27, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

So you then you want:

  • User Deathcharger moved to User BaronRivendareDeathcharger
  • User Tiger moved to User ZulianTiger
  • User Raptor moved to User RazzashiRaptor
  • User Drake moved to User NetherDrake
  • User Nether ray moved to User Sha'tariSkyguardNether ray
  • User Phoenix moved to User AshesofAl'ar
  • User Crow moved to User DruidSwiftCrow
  • User Hippogryph moved to User CenarionWarHippogryph
  • User Hawkstrider moved to User WhiteHawkstrider
  • User Spectral moved to User SpectralTiger
  • User Winterspring moved to User WinterspringFrostsaber
  • User Gryphon moved to User WildhammerGryphon
  • User Chocobo moved to User Hawkstrider-Chocobo
  • User Cow moved to User CowLevel
  • Can't forget, User Bear moved to User AmaniWarBear

I'm losing your sense. You state "Shouldn't be templates for tamed pets" then cite actual practice also as a counter-argument.
I'm sorry these over-specified cases weren't corrected. Those who use general templates to show their specific ?what? breeds hijacked the whole species. It wasn't right. That it's now more difficult to correct doesn't mean it was right. I created 2 templates, and was going to contact the 9 users who linked through to the "over-specified" one. Where I'm in error there is not at all clear to me. --Mangalam (talk) p.s. Copying to your page is a pain I don't need. Splitting the exchange adds nothing ... except entropy. IMNSHO, of course.
All of those templates are for special or unqiue mounts for accomplishments. Only one Tiger mount in existence, so it didn't need to be specific. None of these templates refer to the species, nor do they need to. Let me repeat that... NONE of those templates are for tamed pets. You haven't lost me, its you who seems to be lost.

"for special or unqiue mounts for accomplishments" ... but you said there shouldn't be templates for accomplishments. Now you say there are. I've no idea what you're going on about.
"Only one Tiger mount in existence, so it didn't need to be specific." But there are lots of different Bears. Amani War Bear is one specific. Why are you avoiding the point?
" NONE of those templates are for tamed pets. You haven't lost me, its you who seems to be lost." I asked some pointed questions ... you just told me what reality was instead of answering. What's Amani War Bear if not tamed? A pet? If I'm wrong about that then great, set me straight. But we've been around this 4 or 5 times now and you haven't made things clear.
There's a template called "Bear" that is actually about one specific bear. I wanted to change that, by making "Bear" generic and "Amani War Bear" for those users who were already using that specific. If I'm wrong, please do point that out. That's what I asked. But you started out by deleting the specific, then saying there should be none at all. (As well as commanding me not to use p.s.) So, sorry, you haven't helped me a bit. --Mangalam (talk) 15:32, 5 October 2008 (UTC) p.s. your clever sig pic still interferes with Open In New Tab
Never said there shouldn't be templates for accomplishments, however i did say I wasn't going to argue over this, so I'm done. User:Coobra/Sig3 00:18, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
