Can we remove axlebotsEdit

All axlebots are invertible and have their own inherent strengths and weaknesses that don't apply to robots like Tornado just like Tornados weaknesses don't apply to Weekiwako. We can just place a note linking to axlebots I think and shift all the content there. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 01:20, December 31, 2016 (UTC)

I didn't want to leave this unanswered, but I'm really not sure. I understand the points you put forward, although the list might perhaps feel a little incomplete without Stinger and friends, so I'm not sure. Slightly related, General Chompsalot is on the list of axlebots, but I'm not sure it counts, it never did any overhead swinging, more just... had big exposed wheels.

how about amending Axlebots to say "as they are all invertible, many strengths and weaknesses of that design also apply. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 06:11, December 31, 2016 (UTC)
As I've had to explain on a few occasions in the past, whilst General Chompsalot does not do any overhead swinging, that isn't the deciding factor of being an axlebot. Neither Wheelosaurus or Infernal Contraption do that, and they are undoubtedly axlebots. Axlebots are a design, not a weapon. CrashBash (talk) 07:57, December 31, 2016 (UTC)
I think some robots like Stinger, Weeliwako and Dee would make sense to be removed, but some like S3 and Kadeena Machina are different types of axlebot that probably should stay here. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:36, December 31, 2016 (UTC)
I would rather retool the Axlebots page to be better encompassing of S3 and Meshuggah and others. The axlebot/thwackbot distinction is important in this proposal. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 09:51, December 31, 2016 (UTC)
