This talk page is for discussing improvements to Alchemist.


Does this really need its own page? I'm sure we could move it to the alchemy page, and probably cut out some fat as well. Fullmetal Fan 08:12, January 26, 2012 (UTC)

I've always considered the Alchemy page as being about the art itself and this page being about the position. I fear the Alchemy page getting too bloated if everything related to it get chucked into the bin and I've always hated when I search a wiki for a particular subject only to have it lumped into an unnavigably huge page about a more vague topic. Some of the bigger sections on the Alchemy page were merged in because it would be impossible to talk about Alchemy at any length without discussing them, while I feel that the topic of Alchemists can stand alone as an article. If we merged "Alchemist" into "Alchemy", then I feel it might strike some as odd to have "State Alchemist" stand on its own and that is definitely a topic that needs a page to itself. On the other hand, the Alchemist page does seem relatively small. A merger may be something to consider further, but I feel as though some of the points in this article that are essential to understanding the nature of an alchemist might seem redundant when placed next to information about Alchemy that looks and sounds similar but is no less significant and distinct.

I have to agree with that Lin Yao 14:09, April 20, 2012 (UTC)
