What is the official consensus on "List of" pages like [[List of Super Mario World hacks]] or [[List of EarthBound utilities]]? Should these be done by categories instead, or is this way okay? --[[User:Mr. Tenda|Mr. Tenda]] 23:11, 2 November 2005 (EST)

:I have feeling that categories would tend to work better for those, but "List of" pages allow you to "request" a page by linking to it. Where there are "List of" pages, there should almost definitely be a corresponding category, but it may be okay to have both. Maybe check how Wikipedia handles it? --[[User:AnyoneEB|AnyoneEB]] 08:13, 4 November 2005 (EST)

Are there any naming conventions for hack pages? Should Super_Mario_Odyssey_Demo be prefixed with 'Hack' or the game name? --Labmaster Talk 02:01, 26 Oct 2005 (EDT)

The convention so far has been to just give it a regular name page, and put it in the Game's category...perhaps this should change.--Gau 03:42, 26 Oct 2005 (EDT)

"List of" pages
