Okay, so I have a question regarding collection articles. Currently, there are (for example) two pages; "Bug collecting" and "Metal collecting". However, there isn't a clear idea on how we name those collection pages. Having the "collecting" in the front feels like it's an interacton article, even though "Metal collecting" is only about the collectibles, which are objects. So in that regard, the article should be just named "Metal".

But if we remove the "collecting" from the metal article, this should be also done to the "Bug collecting" article as well? Rename it to just "Insect"? Otherwise, things go inconsistent. And we could go on and rename everything just "Snow globe collecting", "City poster collecting" or "MySims Trophy collecting" but those names feel kinda dumb.

So should we just remove "collecting" from all collectible articles that use it since they are more about objects rather than interactions? - SimDestroyer (talk) 12:24, May 1, 2019 (UTC)

Discussion[edit source]

I think it would make sense to move "Metal Collecting" to "Metal" (or perhaps "Metal (collectible)"). Bug Collecting, however, does also describe the activity of catching bugs, similar to how the Fishing articles both describe the act of fishing, and list the available fish in each game. As to whether or not this is consistent... can you list out some other articles that have the same issue as you describe? -- LostInRiverview talk · blog · contribs 04:07, May 25, 2019 (UTC)

Bump, as the issue is unresolved. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog · contribs 17:43, February 2, 2020 (UTC)
