The current layout guideline for creature articles does not include a section for notable specimens although most of articles about creatures or robots have this section. I propose to add this add this optional section to the layout guideline. It is not a necessary section on most cross-games articles but we are using it more and more on creature articles that are linked to a specific game.

I suggest that when we use this section inside an article, we sort the notable specimens by:

  • Base game.
    • Add-on to the base-game.
  • Alphabetically.

The Notable specimens section is usually place between the Variants and the Related quests sections.

This is what the new entry would look like inside the layout guideline:

(Someone better with words could rephrase it.)

Sorting examples

Cross-game article: Notable deathclaws

Fallout 4 article: Notable super-mutants

  2. Yes If other article formats have their own standards, I don't see why we should not do the same for Creatures. ---bleep196- (talk) 16:05, July 9, 2016 (UTC)

Even for something minor policy says we need at least 10 votes to change the policy... I added 5 days to the vote.--YOD ●︿● 23:46, July 11, 2016 (UTC)
