Category talk:James Collins levels


Title sorting[edit]

This turned up in a bot search for improperly sorted pages, but without context, I wasn't willing to add a sort key.  It might be initials or an abbreviation or a non-English word I don't know.  Someone more plugged in can correct me of course!  Thanks,  Ryan W (living fossil) 08:38, 25 February 2018 (CST)

I don't know if it has any meaning, but the use of 'an' never struck me as being like it's intended as an article, so I think it shouldn't be sorted. Although taking this further I think it would seem weird if we were to place, say Category:TheMionicDonut levels under M. Perhaps normal sorting rules should be ignored when the article is part of someone's handle, I dunno. --Eris Falling (talk) 10:31, 25 February 2018 (CST)
I dunno either, but if you don't like it, you should revert Category:The Trigger levels which I just changed.  We also have Category:TheCupboard levels (not sorted) and [[Category:The Innocent Crew levels]] (sorted).  As I understand it, the bot cannot make a decision if the handle has no spaces and uniform capitalization (glancing through the zdforums roster I see e.g. theepictaco, themaniacboy, AIM, AL-97).  I suppose the only way to check everything is for humans to monitor the new pages feed (which I do) and the move log.    Ryan W (living fossil) 12:47, 25 February 2018 (CST)
I agree with Eris and consider "an_mutt" one atomic handle, just like TheCupboard, TheMionicDonut and The_Trigger -- so I reverted the latter. I default-sorted [[Category:The Innocent Crew levels]] because The Innocent Crew is too (since your 2011 edit). If that name is considered atomic as well, both could be reverted, but because of the standalone article I feel the team name is not atomic, just like The Alpha Dog Alliance (also default-sorted). --Xymph (talk) 13:19, 25 February 2018 (CST)
