Talk:Man (Mob)

Are Pale Folk men? They're currently showing up on the Men page, but I thought they were hobbity folk, similar to Gollum? Furthermore, if you follow the link, there is a question on that discussion page that was never addressed: namely, why the PaleFolk page name is not hyphenated, when all the individual Pale-Folk types are. I would further point out that after clicking on two of the specific types in the category, I found that some of them were listed as Genus: Man while another one was listed as Genus: Race of Man. Is there an easy way to cross-check this stuff? Adelas (talk) 04:04, 8 September 2011 (EDT)

The answer is that the categorization is done by the template and thus takes the spelling as it occurs in the Lore-master inspect as a rule. Pale-folk fall under Man if you look at the Lore-master inspect. I think someone named the PaleFolk page like that because they took the same spelling as the category, and Pale-folk show up like PaleFolk on the Lore-master inspect. We could change the name of this article if you want, as long as the category stays the same. I wasn't able to find any "Genus: Race of Man" back (don't really understand where you saw it), but if you look at the Lore-master inspect (I just checked in-game by inspecting a Dunlending), you see that "Genus: Man" is correct. If "Race of Man" is filled in in the creature template, this is incorrect as far as I know; it should be replaced with "Man". --Ravanel (talk) 07:54, 8 September 2011 (EDT)
