Main Page Categories

It was mid-2012 (!) when Math and I made Template:MainpageCategories, and the last edit made to it was nearly two years ago. It needs some attention, considering its spotlight on the main page. Any suggestions? Any new categories? I'm sure it needs one for mobile, at least. Any ideas for an image to use? All thoughts are welcome. DzylonTalk06:38March 25, 2015

I agree, the mobile category definitely needs representation on the main page. As for the image to use, one which readily comes to mind is the Pet Android, if it isn't too large.
As for the existing categories:
  • Category:Game Mechanics could probably be removed until it is a little bit more fleshed out and/or is no longer so ambiguous with Category:Gameplay.
  • Random thought: I wonder how much it would affect SEO and such if all of the buttons actually linked to categories instead of content pages (eg. Category:Weapons instead of Weapons)?
  • Most of the existing images seem fine to me. However, the one for Armor could be updated to something post-1.2 (Spectre Armor to match the wordmark, maybe?) and the one for console Terraria may be due for a change to something more interesting (Ocram or a Soul of Blight, perhaps?).
Other than that, I think the current layout of the mainpage category buttons still holds up pretty well, honestly. Oscuritaforze (talk) 07:26, March 25, 2015 (UTC)
Nice suggestions, thanks. I implemented all of those and some others. I went with the Tonbogiri for console - there's not a whole lot to choose from there. And as far as SEO goes, I think it's definitely best to link to content pages where possible rather than categories. DzylonTalk00:56March 26, 2015
