So... with Going Rogue coming up...
« on: July 06, 2010, 02:19:59 PM »
... how should we handle the categories for people who aren't heroes or villains? I'm thinking the easiest thing to do would be: in addition to (for example) the categories Freedom Heroes and Freedom Villains, add categories for Freedom Vigilantes, Freedom Rogues, Freedom Resistance, and Freedom Loyalists. Rinse and repeat for each server. Any character who switches sides can then just change their category.

I think this sounds pretty reasonable, and could be done ahead of time without disrupting current articles, but I thought I'd mention it here before doing it myself.  ;D

Thoughts? (Also, any other categories or changes for when Going Rogue arrives?)

That's pretty much what I was thinking, too.

YEA!!! We're going to rename Paragon Wiki to Praetoria Wiki for one... and give everyone silly titles for no good reason other than our own humor...

IDK, I'm just giddy today :D. Listen to eabrace, not me. :D

Well, except maybe for badges.  Those could get kinda messy depending on how things work when you change alignments.

Hmm.  Maybe.  On the other hand, it should still only be possible to earn certain badges while playing on the hero side and certain badges while playing on the villain side.  I don't think that's changing.  Regardless of whether you play a vigilante or rogue, I'm pretty sure that there'd still be a distinction there with the caveat perhaps that vigilantes and rogues might be able to access both sides.  Unless that's not true in all cases, in which we'd probably have to create new categories for Vigilante Badges and Rogue Badges and mark any badges that could be earned as vigilante or rogue appropriately.

Just curious, what do badges have to do with implementing Going Rogue systems on the Ouro Portal?

Oh yeah. O-portal.  Sometimes I forget to look at which of the wikis we're discussing.  :)

Alrighty, I just went ahead and made 'em. Hopefully that'll cover everything for that aspect of character categories when Going Rogue comes out. :)
