Summary0003567: Throw warning when regular user (not mod, char-char rel maint., char maint.) tries to add evolve/transform char-char rels
DescriptionThis concerns the following four char-char rel types listed below:

permanently evolved/transformed from
permanently evolves/transforms into
temporarily evolved/transformed from
temporarily evolves/transforms into

Those rels are almost never supposed to be added by regular users because they are almost universally wrong. Per current policy (as set by worf many years ago), there are extremely few legitimate use cases for this and they are effectively restricted to Pokemon and Digimon. Almost 100% of the time a regular user adds one of those, they wanted guises instead. I've deleted hundreds of those over the years and God knows how many exist.

To help alleviate the problem of users thinking those are valid substitutes for guises, the interface should throw a warning on their faces, telling them they very likely want to use guises instead and linking them to with a note to ask a mod if on doubt.

Char-char rel maintainers, char maintainers and mods should likely be exempt from that warning because they probably know what they're doing.
TagsNo tags attached.
