Split blaster sets and value packs

Should we split the listing of blaster sets and value packs so that they each have their own articles? It might make this page a bit slimmer and easier to go through. Jet [TalkContributions] 23:02, March 30, 2013 (UTC)

Could be. It'd still have the same amount of text to read. I'd like to use tables or something to split the list but I feel like it'd make the articles really long. If we split the article into two, then tables might look better for organization. Jet [TalkContributions] 23:36, March 30, 2013 (UTC)
Actually, thinking about things now, perhaps it'd be easier to just provide links to the categories for each instead of having a big list on the page. Jet [TalkContributions] 23:56, March 30, 2013 (UTC)
It'd be worth keeping as a list of value packs instead, unless we want to start having articles on the wiki for those as well. I think it's a bit much to have articles for the value packs and "Double Your Darts" packages, so having the list might be a better idea. Jet [TalkContributions] 03:25, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
I added the then-broken links because I was going to create articles for them. And yes, information for value packs is located in the relative blaster's article, but I feel like it'd be helpful to have a full list somewhere on the site. Jet [TalkContributions] 19:40, April 1, 2013 (UTC)

Linking sets

Why do some product/blaster sets have separate pages but some don't? Also, shouldn't we have pages for Double Your Darts value packs if we have pages for some product sets? AllosaurWarfare  22:21, September 24, 2017 (UTC) 

In reality, most blaster/product sets should have their own articles. Some don't have them just because nobody has gotten around to making articles for them. Others, like "Bonus" or "Special" packs that just include extra ammo and maybe one extra accessory don't really need an article. Same goes for Double Your Darts. Those get relegated to a simple mention on the article rather than a link to/an article for it. If you want to make articles for proper blaster/product sets though, be my guest.

Question

Are blasters like the HyperFire value pack (which comes w/ 2 25-round drums & 50 darts) & the Imperial Death Trooper Deluxe Blaster (which comes w/ 6 darts) considered as Double Your Darts (although they don't claim so on their packaging)? :)

Double Your Darts is specific on its packaging, so no. Just because a set might come with double the standard ammunition doesn't automatically qualify it as such. Jet [TalkContributions] 06:49, October 29, 2017 (UTC)

Separating Blaster Sets, Product Sets & Value Packs

These are completely different things that all deserve their own article. Maybe blaster sets and product sets should be merged, but at least create another page for value packs. AllosaurWarfare 15:57, October 29, 2017 (UTC)

This is actually probably a good idea, since it'd help reduce bulk on the article and to keep all the non-article products in one place, rather than mixed in with blaster sets that have articles. I am going to be busy today, so I can't do this now, but I can come to this later on (or hop in later and fix things with it if you want to get a head-start on the work).
