I'm a little confused on the organization of this section. We've got the MafiaRole cluster (now Category:Roles), but that page doesn't actually contain any information. The search function described there doesn't really work like you'd expect it to anymore, with the number of pages we have on the Wiki now.

Then we've got Roles, which actually summarizes and categorizes the roles nicely, and could probably supplant MafiaRole. The Main Page also points to Roles...I wonder what would happen if we redirected MafiaRole to point at Roles? It's simpler than editing all the role pages, but I won't do it yet.

Pluralization

i'm not sure why the singular is redirected to the plural rather than the other way around... any reason not to move this page to Role?..

Iron and Giant

Can anyone explain the appearance of these roles tonight? -- Mr. Flay 23:00, 25 January 2009 (EST)

Iron signifies being unnightkillable. A Giant is a variant of that, meaning you will only survive a first attempt, not a second. (sorry if I responded to this wrong, I'm new at this)
Ahhh, gotcha. We already have a page for this at Bulletproof Vest, which is what we usually call it. I'd add the names as a variant, and redirect those to the article. -- Mr. Flay 23:08, 25 January 2009 (EST)
One thing that is lacking is a list of "prefixs" for roles, like iron, informed, post-restricted, territorial etc.
Well, we have a page for Post Restrictions, we just consider them a separate characteristic (any role could have one). What does Territorial mean - like a Paranoid Gun Owner? -- Mr. Flay 23:14, 25 January 2009 (EST)
Aaah, alright.

The Big Role Template

Template:Mafia Role Sidebar. A link to this was left on the page. Right now this template is incomplete. Should something like it be added to the Roles page? Xdaamno 08:59, 22 November 2010 (EST)
