Hey, I've been having a bit of trouble properly categorizing certain credit roles.
I've been putting directors in the "design" category because they seem directly involved in creative decisions from my understanding as opposed to producers.
Now, where do I put someone with a writing credit? The last one, I put under design as well since writing scenarios often feels directly connected to the game's design. However, I feel this should be its own category.
Related to this are localization credits. Their importance varies from game to game. Almost all games can be localized but different games have different importance placed on their localization. For something like Animal Crossing, it's a very big part of the creative decisions that are being made. So is this a design credit?
What I don't like doing is putting them under "unclassified."
Why do we not have a "writing" category? Or even a few more categories in general. I'm not saying have 100 categories for every different position but at least a few more that make it easier to categorize credits. Also, how about adding a few example credits next to the categories?
Like: "Design (Level Designer, Creative Director, etc.)"
This would help people associated the right credit with the right category.
I would assume that the site was rebuilt to be a bit more flexible in that regard that adding something is impossible again, right? At least it really should have after how limited the original wiki was.
