Forums: War Room Dalisay articles - renaming
This discussion is closed. The result of this discussion was:

The existing Dalisay article will be renamed to Dalisay (airbender), and Dalisay (Roku Era) will be renamed to Dalisay.
The article Rabten will be renamed to Rabten (nonbender) when an article for the character in the Roku novel with the same name is created.

Please do not edit this discussion.

A page for Dalisay (Roku Era) has been created. I'll start off saying that an era name isn't really the best of choices for anything in parentheses. However, it's probably the case that the new Dalisay should become the main "Dalisay" article. As a companion of Sozin, and (according to the search function on the Amazon preview) a significant character in the entire novel, she would take priority over the current Dalisay, who is mentioned across one or two pages of the TTRPG Republic City expansion. From an SEO standpoint, this also makes sense, as I do think that characters from the novels are more well-known than those from the TTRPG alone. Therefore, I propose Dalisay (Roku Era) becomes, "Dalisay", and our current "Dalisay" becomes "Dalisay (airbender)".Kassilon (wallcontribs) 12:55, 8 July 2024 (UTC)

Agreed. This is the Kya and Bumi situation again. And Dalisay isn't the only repeated RPG name in TRoR. There's also a new Rabten, part of the SAT council of elders. Airspeedprime did a stream on the available Amazon previews recently where he noted this trend as well. I don't recall if there was a third example.

I would agree with the Rabten change too in principle, but it seems like it may be premature to create an article now, with only limited scenes available in the public preview. However, we can decide here that we'd make that change automatically once the novel is released and a new Rabten article created. As for any other major characters from the Roku book, I don't think they share names with existing canon characters. If such a conflict exists, though, we can decide that it would apply too, unless an RPG-only character is considerably more significant than them for whatever reason.Kassilon (wallcontribs) 15:00, 8 July 2024 (UTC)
I think it would be fair to say that there won't be a TTRPG character more prevelant than a Roku book character in this situation. You have to remember that this is exclusively already characters who are prolific enough to warrant an article being made. So with that being inherent, I would say that the TTRPG ones should be the ones with the more obscure article name. Like it or not, the Roku character will be more prominent than the TTRPG character, that's just how that's going to be. The TTRPG characters, in these situations, will never have the viewers nor the relevance to be the "main" of the two pages. Zacatero • (Wall) • 15  20  15 19:17, 8 July 2024 (UTC)
As Zac said, I think most times, if not all, an Avatar Chronicle character is largely more prominent then a TTRPG character. This is also definitely beneficial for SEO reasons. For the presented character, Dalisay, she should definitely be titled regularly with the TTRPG counterpart having the parentheses added on at the end as the one in the Roku novel, from our view in the samples, sees to be a large member part of "Team Sozin". For Rabten he seems to be mentioned a couple of times as well, so I would suggest the same treatment when and if a article is created. Perhaps the TTRPG character can be renamed Rabten (nonbender) or Rabten (equalists)? aeriux 23:21, 8 July 2024 (UTC)
