Could we perhaps merge the article ArmA: The Game with the category Category:ArmA: The Game?

The current structure is very confusing, and I doubt anybody who got to this page, trying to find out more basic game information will expect to find more information underneath the identically named category link at the bottom. With the Wiki structure as it is it just looks like the page's own category group, but not a link that would lead to more information... --Kronzky 15:57, 19 December 2006 (CET)

Well, that's the basic structure of a wiki though. The articles are meant to read through and jump to other articles referenced on the page, while categories are simply to find an article by its topic. Maybe we should mention that in the Getting Started section.
If you are missing some references in the article, just add them. But IMO having articles and categories merged together at one point and not at another (as it was before the reorganisation) is really really confusing, and I'm not alone with this. Many people reported that they wouldn't use the wiki since they wouldn't find the information they needed. --hardrock 15:59, 20 December 2006 (CET)
I think the confusing part is that they both have the same name.
So, if you're on the page "The Game" already, and see a link at the bottom that seemingly points to the same page (and most people won't be familiar with the differences between Wiki-pages and Wiki-categories) you probably won't expect anything new there. Couldn't we name it something like "More about...", or "Details about...", or something like that?
I'm pretty familiar with Wikis, but even I got lost recently when I was searching for a specific page, and ended up using the search button... --Kronzky 16:21, 20 December 2006 (CET)
