Mortal World

The "Mortal World"? Is it called that on the show? I ask because in the Winter Solstice: Part 1 it is called the "Natural World" Just letting you guys know why I changed it Felinoel 15:55, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Describing the spirits

The way the spirits are described (grammar and tense wise) seems awkward to me, but I don't have any ideas of how to fix it. Any one have an idea? Ddd44 05:14, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

  • According to 888th avatar, articles on this wiki are written in the past tense, with the point of view from the time after the end of the war, like: aang TOOK ozai's bending away, not: aang TAKES ozai's bending away.
  • but things that exist the same way after the war, are written in present continious, like: ba sing se IS a great city, not: ba sing se WAS a great city.
  • so, since the spirits are still the same, i guess the tense should be PRESENT CONTINIOUS, like: koh RESIDES in the spirit world, not: koh RESIDED in the...

The grammar, and general way its portrayed is awkward. The unnecessary colons or unncessary "is"'s throw me off. Tried to fix it but someone fixed it back immediately citing the rest of the site. The way each spirit is introduced seems to be *spirit name*: He/She *description* -- this should either be changed to *spirit name* is *description* or *spirit name*: description. Should be simplified. Dbfreudber (wallcontribs) 23:01, December 4, 2012 (UTC)
I believe I have fixed the problem you were referring to. If you still think further revisions are necessary, feel free to do them yourself. Ozai Spirte The Final BattleSparks From HadesAzula sprite23 23:35, December 4, 2012 (UTC)

New page for spirits

I feel like the spirits should have their own page which is distinct from the Spirit World page. There's a lot of information on spirits and they aren't exactly only a part of the spirit world. Skarrj (wallcontribs) 03:36, November 18, 2013 (UTC)

I agree. Unlike my past things for making new articles, Spirits are a bigpart of Avatar and need to have a page of their own. SorcererSupreme21 (wallcontribs) 00:05, September 23, 2014 (UTC)
An article dedicated to spirits would just end up being the list of known spirits, which does not a pretty article make. While spirits are now free to roam the world, they are still at home in the Spirit World as well and if one is looking for information regarding spirits, the Spirit World article is a very logical place to look for it.

While LL does make a very good point, i do find it odd that we don't have a page for "spirits", especially considering the fact that we have so many other pages for even the little things, while spirits have been a huge part of the story, and even the name of an entire book.

As pointed out many a times on Votes for Deletion forums, the argument "but we have a page for X" holds no merit it all, because it's not because something gets its own page that it automatically has to mean that something else will get its own page as well. Everything needs to be gauged in concreto and preferably be placed in the location that suits it the best. As such, one has to ask themselves, what would the "spirits" page consist of? If it turns out to be largely the same information that there is not on the Spirit World page, then what's the point to create a new page? What's the added value? We don't just make pages because we can. We always try to group pages based on relevancy. That's also why we have just general cluster pages like the fauna, flora, and cuisine in the World of Avatar pages: they're large pages containing information that should not have its own page. In my opinion, the undefined spirits should be treated in a similar manner and the most logical cluster page for them is the Spirit World page.
