Article does not function as a disambiguation, and is made redundant by Category:Tools

Delete - As nominator. Estradile (talk) 18:02, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

Oppose - I think it functions very well as a disamiguation. Category pages aren't always the easiest to find for users as well, so being dependant on that is not great imo. Fjaratalk 02:00, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

Oppose - Considering category pages are automatically generated, and sorted only alphabetically, I think having a disambiguation page that is fully controlled by us is useful. That way we can split it up into subsections, like this page has right now, to more clearly distinguish between types of tools. Joeytje50 talk Santa hat.png 02:33, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

Oppose - The category is useful for what it is, however this is a fine disambiguation page for a tool overview for a user. Not everyone uses categories for a list like this, and not everything that is on a disambiguation page is possibly tagged with the category in the first place.

Oppose - I wouldn't mind the Tool page being used as a bit more than a simple disambig if that makes it more useful. In my mind this would be similar to something like mithril equipment. This seems like a better solution than deleting it and allows us to put more context on it than the category page allows. IMO it is not made redundant by Category:Tools, which provides no context for the tools and is not the same set of items as the Tool page. - Andmcadams (talk) 03:57, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

Closed - The page shall remain and will not be deleted. The functionality of a page in which the wiki has more control over, rather than a Category page, is important for providing additional information or context for the tools. --Legaia 2 Pla · ʟ · 15:44, 21 August 2021 (UTC)
