Hey, I have noticed there is a lot (and I mean a real LOT) of pages that have under 'artist' a 'category: artist' link, rather than the name directing at the pages. Obviously, said page doesn't exists, and I have spend some time changing it. Then I remembered the whole 'glossary of abilities' page, so I came here.
What is the official stance on this?
It would be better to create a 'category' page and drop the individual pages I have been working, or a bot could be run to change all those Jakub Kasper to merely Jakub Kasper?
I'm not sure there is an official stance on this in particular. The reason for categories is that they would list all the runes by a particular author. However, this makes less sense in this case -- we can change that. Post it on User:Xibot's wall so I have the suggestions all in one place.
In general these sorts of things are flexible, so I can implement suggestions you have. However since any changes you make to Stats will get overwritten when the page is updated, I would have to change how the bot writes up pages. (This includes converting specific words to links.)
In other cases, there is usually a workaround -- for example, if you have a separate page already created for a category, you can transclude it in to the category. For example, see Category:Loss of Life which transcludes the page Loss of Life and click Source Mode.
