Counts as an Archetype?

How is this an Archetype? It's just a group of cards with a vaguely common trait. Isn't this just like saying something like hat wearing monsters is considered an Archetype? -- Deltaneos (talk) 18:24, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

I am not sure who added the archetype category but i would agree with you. But this can be removed from the archetype category since the first sentence states it's rather just a series of cards that are similar.--Moneypony 22:36, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah. If we removed the mentions of it being an Archetype, it may be worth keeping. It covers worlds in the card game universe. It's a worth documenting aspect of the card game (and anime)... but not an Archetype. -- Deltaneos (talk) 23:05, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
The backfire of this though is that we won't be able to use a archetype navbox but should we convert it to text?--Moneypony 00:03, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
Maybe we could create a 'series' category for cards that have similar traits but aren't considered an archetype (like this, Clowns, Apes, Spiders, Yokai Monsters, Wdjat, etc.)? —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) 01:41, June 4, 2009
I'm not saying that it's a "series" and that that's a different concept than "Archetype". "Clowns" can be identified by having "Clown" in their name and have similar/related effects making them an Archetype. Yokai, I think, was a Monster Type like Spirit and Union, when they appeared in the Japanese manga. But yes, cards bearing the Eye of Wdjat or female cards is trivial information, not a series/Archetype. I wouldn't say this needs an Archetype navbox. We should list the various worlds in the card game and maybe write a paragraph about them and give a link to their associated Archetype. -- Deltaneos (talk) 08:00, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah and then maybe add some anime only areas (the Dark World, the Higher Plane, the Light of Destruction's area, that city Luna went to, etc.) —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) 23:04, June 4, 2009
The anime/manga areas have an article, Duel Monsters Spirit World. -- Deltaneos (talk) 00:19, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
Then why not merge the two? —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) 20:09, June 5, 2009
The locations of the cards aren't necessarily a "spirit world".--Moneypony 22:59, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah but some are —This unsigned comment was made by Blackstone Dresden (talkcontribs) 21:25, June 8, 2009
I only know the Ancient Forest is but most of the others aren't so it would be better to keep it separate IMO.--Moneypony 01:03, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Converting it to text

I think the best way to handle this would be to convert this into text, I wouldn't mind doing it but i need some OKs from people so they don't revert it.--Moneypony 19:55, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Field Support

"Terraforming" and "Field Barrier" should be added as support cards. —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) 18:44, August 5, 2009

What exactly is this?

If I understand this right a Monster World Area is just any card which can stay on the field after its been activated, whose artwork depicts a location? I know there was already a bit of debate about this, but is that really enough to make it an archetype? Is this in any way more valid than saying people is an archetype and any card depicted as a person in the artwork is part of the archetype? -- Deltaneos (talk) 13:51, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Hey, I think we should place this to the Field Spell Cards page, the box mentioned almost all the field spells--33royward 07:24, September 7, 2009 (UTC)

I think this started out with good intentions, but evidently something got lost and ppl just started posting any card that vaguely resembled a world into it. The type is called "FIELD" card for a reason people! I think this page should be deleted, or at least cleaned to only cards that are obviously parts of the world, like Ancient Forest and Rainbow Ruins. Deathhacker 02:10, October 28, 2009 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure just about every field spell can be counted as a "Monster World Area", since they all show a location.--( (talk) 01:05, October 4, 2010 (UTC))

I support the deletion of this page. -- (talk) 12:05, July 10, 2011 (UTC)

  • I also support the deletion of this page. It's clearly unnecessary.--YamiWheeler (talkcontribs) 14:17, July 10, 2011 (UTC)
  • I didn't notice the dates of the previous discussion, so sorry for necro-posting, but why hasn't the article been deleted yet?--YamiWheeler (talkcontribs) 14:24, July 10, 2011 (UTC)
Doesn't really matter on talk pages. Here, necroposts only occur in Forum pages xP
I agree on the delete, but if we happen to keep it, it should only be a list (similar to Attack name) and not an archetype of any sort. -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 14:30, July 10, 2011 (UTC)
  • Its been a long time since the Debate of this page's deletion ended, should this page be deleted or not? (talk) 08:03, August 29, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, no one yet has spoken up in support of keeping it (in two years!), so I'll go ahead and delete the page. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:29, August 29, 2011 (UTC)
The archetype category linking to this page should be removed as well; for all of them. -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 08:42, August 29, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I was gonna get that after I got up. Leave a message on my talk page to make sure I don't forget; I'm about to log off for the night anyways. ;) ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 08:44, August 29, 2011 (UTC)
