On a related note to the discussion about classes (but separate enough to warrant its own thread I think) is there any possibility of removing Portal:Prestige Classes from the main Portals and replaced with Portal:Classes? The former already redirects to the latter and prestige classes appear to be a fundamentally 3e concept (though it's possible 5e will revive them), existing in neither 1e, 2e, or 3e. The new classes portal covers base classes, prestige classes (3e), paragon paths (4e), and epic destinies (4e) together anyway (and I'm thinking of adding a section for 2e class kits) so it's certainly not as though they're not covered.

As I recall the original difficulty with this when I originally proposed it (all the way back when 4e debuted over half a decade ago) was that the original administrator had gone inactive and no one had the authority to actually alter the main page. That seems to have changed since then, so I'm wondering if we might change the situation. As it is, the main link to the prestige classes portal is looking increasingly archaic.

Greeting, Niirfa... basically, two high admins and two admins are online regularly... High admin Hash stops by from time to time, but High admin BadCat is our go-to for important things guy, while Admin Movie is the tech wizard... me... I, basically, hunt trolls & plagiarism, clean up the wiki behind the scenes, and organize the categories. If you need aid, please ask any of the above admins :) -

Thanks for the tip. I'll notify them then.

Yes, I'll change the main link. As for the portal itself, I don't think we gain anything by splitting the page into left and right sections. The two boxes (Paragon Paths and Epic Destinies) are nowhere near the same size and just makes you scroll more. I'd rather see more of the same type info on the screen at once, rather than wasting screen space on stuff I may not be interested in.

I'll edit that down then. I'm not sure how many paragon paths / epic destinies in total there are compared to prestige classes (there's definitely some content missing) but your logic still stands. I'll make it so paragon paths and prestige classes take up a whole row, just like base classes and prestige classes (and class kits, if I or someone else adds those in).
