I am working on an upgrade for damage type. My new content is here: User:Furey/Sandbox. Feedback welcome here or at User Talk:Furey/Sandbox. Both high-level feedback and corrections to specific details are welcome.

I think that each flag should have its own column, rather than all sharing one, for ease of sorting. If that makes the table too wide, then I think the "example monsters" column can be removed, as it isn't really useful. I also think the flags would be more clear if they were expressed as positives rather than negatives. --Darth l33t (talk) 15:18, 14 June 2024 (UTC)
I redid all the flags. No more columns for any of them. Polarity is moot now, but I chose the polarity based on how many attacks are xxx vs noxxx. For example there are only a few "nohp" damage types, it would be noisy to add "does hp damage" to about 30 lines.
Example monsters are good for reader to make mental connections in reverse direction. Reader knows what an energy vortex is, now they can be sure they are on the right line.
Now that the flag information is all redone, what do you think? Furey (talk) 17:01, 14 June 2024 (UTC)
