Categorization[edit source]

The nav is getting kinda long. I propose that we change it to be categorized by event type, then oldest to newest. That way it'll be using more horizontal space which is kind of sitting unused with the current categorization.

I don't mind long Nav templates as long as they're useful. I've seen the templates at the Yu-Gi-Oh! wiki; this is nothing.
The main Event page already lists the Events by their type. Providing the same list twice doesn't seem to be very helpful. Where would users look to find the events sorted by chronological order? Plus there are repeat events like Valentine's Day and sorting them by season helps demonstrate timeline.
Also, I honestly don't think anyone cares what type of event something is, with the exception of Collection Events because they have heirlooms. There are events like Battle Armor that don't neatly fit into the event categories. (Is "Store event" even an official term? Or is it something this wiki made up to group minor events together?)

I don't mind the current categorization, the consistent chronological order it's very helpful. I made a version based on the proposed categorization:

Even though it's compact, I don't consider it a overall improvement. L0D5 (talk) 11:40, 20 June 2020 (UTC)
