Will overhaul "SFX" categories soon, so that they are "wikier." Distinguished categories like I've done are not as wiki as they could be. According to wikipedia MOS:

1) Avoid abbreviations. Example: "Category:Military equipment of World War II", not ":Category:Military equipment of WW2". However, abbreviations that have become the official or generally used name (such as NATO) should be used where there are no other conflicts.
2) Don't write the category structure in names. Example: "Monarchs", not "People - Monarchs".

Regarding #1: I'll take the liberty of using "SFX" to mean "special effects" since that's pretty well established irl, and on SK (and most places) there are no conflicts with SFX. It will also match up nicely with the "COLOR PATTERN-themed" system already in place on this wiki.

Regarding #2: woops. Hence this change.

New format:

"Burning-SFX" etc.

Will be tweaking individual pages to make more sense to future editors. Instead of a number system, will be saying "helmet" etc. on individual pages and using a switch to say helmet=# for category page organization instead. -Novaster 02:31, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Scratch this bit. Not as intuitive as I thought and too much work. -Novaster 03:36, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
Okay, all this is "done" - for now. Might go through and just make a sortable list per Special Effect on this page and stop using the categories unconventionally, but, they seem to be useful/liked this way. -Novaster 15:46, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
