For the record, this is not a zone, it is several subzones that appear and disappear.--SWM2448 19:38, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

I know, but Alayea had already tagged several NPCs with that category and I'm not sure it was relevant enough to tag all Vindicaar NPCs with "Krokuun NPCs", Antorus Wastes NPCs" and "Mac'Areee NPCs" Xporc (talk) 19:49, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
While I am not fond of the idea of tagging the NPCs aboard the Vindicaar with all three zone categories, I don't really like creating "Area NPCs" for areas that aren't zones or instances.. Although that is the easiest solution I'll admit. PeterWind (talk) 20:21, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
I don't mind either. What's User:Alayea's take on it? Xporc (talk) 20:23, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
I'm in agreement with Xporc and PeterWind on this one. -- DarkTZeratul (talk) 20:31, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
While you're right that its a subzone, it's different from other subzones in that it's supposed to travel around. I felt it was the better option to tag as Vindicaar NPCs because they're only located on the ship itself and would be less messy and confusing. I can't say the thought thrills me to have to tag the NPCs on the ship for all three Argus zones. -- Alayea (talk / contrib) 20:51, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
I agree. The Vindicaar should be an exception to such zone/instance only category. Less messy, less confusion. — Surafbrov T / C / P 21:10, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
Is the Vindicaar the only travelling subzone of the game, or are there more? Xporc (talk) 21:12, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
Believe so, yes. — Surafbrov T / C / P 21:16, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
This leaves a question for the Zeppelins. For an example, Sky-Captain Bomblast is aboard the The Iron Eagle but he doesn't have any category related to a zone. — Surafbrov T / C / P 21:19, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
While on this topic, should we change anything in how boat crews are handled, category-wise? I'm not necessarily, saying one or the other, but it's a related topic. PeterWind (talk) 21:53, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
The zeppelins are not subzones, are they? There's no need to tag them, and they only go through two zones. Currently most zeppelin and boat crews will be tagged with Category:Boat crews or Category:Zeppelin crews, and I think should then be tagged with the two zones they can appear in. Xporc (talk) 22:10, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
I too think that is a fitting way of handling it, but was unsure/couldn't remember if we had outlined a "rule" for that topic already. PeterWind (talk) 23:51, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
I do agree from that point. Though two zones are not as bad as three of them (cough Vindicaar). — Surafbrov T / C / P 23:59, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
I have no position on the categorizing of boats and zeppelins, but I just want to point out that all they deal with is strictly going from point A to point B. The Vindicaar, on the other hand, has vendors, a mailbox, the Netherlight Crucible, quests, etc. So I'm not sure it's a good comparison. -- Alayea (talk / contrib) 01:59, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Could always just make a Category:Vindicaar crew or just plain Category:Vindicaar NPCs and make the 3 Argus zones a parent category so the NPCs don't have to have 3 zone categories on them. This will also keep the zone NPC categories clear of characters that don't actually stay in the zone. Snake.gifSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3.gifFor Pony!
