Talk:Mercury Bow

Hi MK, have you seen this page? We have the manual text there. Also, we have tips for each weapon here. You may have noticed this page was a redlink from a couple others, which could mean that the weapon was undocumented; sorry, that was misleading on the part of the person who made those links.

I would recommend that you move any original insights you've put here into the weapon tips on the "Gameplay" page, and make this page redirect to that page. I will now make a note on the Gameplay page that people who want to see the tech specs can also go to the Quotes/Weapons page so both sides of the weapon's info, stats and tips, are more easily found. In hindsight, we should have set up redirects like this a while ago, so anyone typing in a weapon name gets sent to the right place. --Iritscen 14:57, 29 October 2008 (CET)

The Quotes/Weapons section is meant as a more or less verbatim reference, so it should merely be transcluded to wherever the weapon is actually described. Making the actual Mercury Bow article part of a page like Gameplay doesn't sound good either. Actually, I would think there's potential for single pages like this one, one per weapon, just like what we have started for the Crescent Moon Kick a while back. The mercury bow is quite popular among fan artists, so you can illustrate a page rather easily, even without obvious/tedious things like HD screenshots of the model, HUD icons, a mention of the sniper scope mod, generally cool screenshots of the gun in-game... At some point it will also make sense to set up a Mercury Bow category and apply it to articles or images that feature the gun prominently. --geyser 16:46, 29 October 2008 (CET)
Okay, change of plans, forget what I said, MK :-) This article can stay right where it is. --Iritscen 23:11, 29 October 2008 (CET)
