Deletion of categories from Pathfinder #4

I've taken out the categories of dragons that are only mentioned on pp. 70-71 of Fortress of the Stone Giants. It's the only place they appear in the canon and they may have been excised. This is a pretty good guess since we've already had two Campaign Setting books (Dragons Revisited and Dragons Unleashed) and they have yet to be mentioned. If they are put back in, we can remove the comment tags from the navbox. --Brandingopportunity (talk) 04:22, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

I like this Brandingopportunity - and thanks for not deleting the work! It was a good spot by Filby but a rather weighty addition to the template of little used creatures and your solution means we can easily add them in again later if needed. They are all mentioned on the Dragon page so I'll add a comment of explanation there as to the discrepancy between text and template. --Fleanetha (talk) 17:45, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Deletion of Nirvana dragon

The Nirvana dragon only exists in one single piece of art which has indeed become Apsu's official picture. As stated here, the idea has been abandoned by Paizo, and the page should probably redirect to the planar dragon corresponding to Nirvana when that dragon becomes a thing. - HTD (talk) 10:57, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

This is an interesting find HTD: thank you. Certainly, the dragon should go from the template as it is not canon. I can add the art to Apsu too, which is nice. We really should also delete the page Nirvana dragon too. I'll tidy this all up now. However, to the general point, a quick reference as to why the deletion is made is useful for us editors to check its validity quickly, (in this case to James' comment) rather than having to hunt down why a deletion has been made / just reverse the deletion. Plus we can help tidy up around the deletion too - to ensure the rest of the wiki is consistent. This is my request for future deletions please. -Fleanetha (talk) 18:31, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
