Shouldn't "Water Mimicry" be under water? >_>; I'd put anything involving lightning under Wind too.--Riddler 23:00, 6 December 2007 (EST)

  • I thought that at first too. But it appears that the abilities are categorized differently. "Energy manipulation or generation" would go under "fire".--Ice Vision 23:04, 6 December 2007 (EST)
    • Um, I've got a jump on you... Check out "User:MiamiVolts/Portal:Abilities". Though my categories are a bit different.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:14, 6 December 2007 (EST)
      • Empathic Mimicry would go under all four, and Invisibility and Replication would go under Manipulations and/or Enhancements of One's Own Body.--Riddler 23:51, 6 December 2007 (EST)
      • I saw that. Interesting classifications...I like mine better because they kinda go with what Mohinder said about there being four power genes in parasite--SacValleyDweller (talk) 01:32, 7 December 2007 (EST)


add a few images and perhaps a few other edits and I think this might be a humdinger of a page! what's everyone else think? wouldnt hurt me none if no, however Im just so proud of this page... :)--SacValleyDweller (talk) 01:47, 7 December 2007 (EST)

  • It's a nice classification. However I'd think it was more of a theory than a fan creation. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:54, 7 December 2007 (EST)
    • OOOOO, you're right! how bout a promote to there somewhere?--SacValleyDweller (talk) 02:09, 7 December 2007 (EST)
      • Well, you could add four entries into Theory:Abilities in general (one for each element), or one long entry, but would that defeat the point? An alternative is that we could provide three portal views for Portal:Abilities, a single listing (no grouping), a classical elements listing, and a Activating Evolution listing. I realize that both are perhaps a bit subjective, but we could note that. What do you think?--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:32, 7 December 2007 (EST)
        • Since it's kind of a standalone theory, I'd rather see it as its own page, sort of like theory:time travel or red. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:52, 7 December 2007 (EST)
          • That's what I'm suggesting, but that the page be linked from one of the portals. Perhaps a new section can be added to Portal:Theories about Abilities for links to new portal pages containing categorical sortings of the known abilities since they are theories.--MiamiVolts (talk) 11:59, 7 December 2007 (EST)


Is there a reason at least some of the repeated abilities are not linked? Can't they be marked in some other manner? (With a star, perhaps?)--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:47, 7 December 2007 (EST)


Since you're looking for a short name for the subpage, might I suggest "Abilities by classic element"? The "and" in the name implies that the abilities and the elements are separate. And, the name would be shorter. What do you think?--Ice Vision 15:18, 7 December 2007 (EST)

  • I think if we go with my suggestion, then the article names should be "Portal:Theories about Abilities/Classical Elements" and "Portal:Theories about Abilities/Mohinder's Categories". However, the links from the "Portal:Theories about Abilities" page could well be titled "Abilities by classical element" (classical sounds better, imho) and "Abilities by Mohinder's category".--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:16, 7 December 2007 (EST)
    • I'm working on my suggestion now and have renamed my user page accordingly to User:MiamiVolts/Portal:Theories about Abilities/Mohinder's Categories.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:15, 8 December 2007 (EST)
      • Actually, I found out that the categories are technically Chandra's since they were there before Mohinder took over the site. Also, your page should use "Air" instead of "Wind" if you are using the Greek four.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:46, 9 December 2007 (EST)
