Current projects


Items are receiving a large overhaul. Historically, items have been compacted in a list and category rather than each having their own page. From now on, however, items will be split and covered on their own pages. The benefits of this is to allow information regarding items to be more accessible for our readers, as it is easier and faster to find the desired item if it were on its own page, rather than scrolling through a long compacted list of over 20 items before finding the desired item.

This will also benefit mobile readers as well as those with slow internet speed, as the long lists result in longer loading times, and scrolling through the pages horizontally makes things more difficult for mobile users.

Shared pages

Some items will still share pages with other items. The items that will are those that have similar names and effects. Hamburger is an example, as Double burger and Mammoth burger are simply upgrades of the standard Hamburger. Status ailment curing items which have identical effects, such as Antidote and Vial of serum, will also be covered collectively, as both are used to cure Poison.

Equippable items will be left unchanged as well, aside from general improvements such as adding infoboxes and images. Items which have a different English name but same Japanese name will also be shared.
