There is something wrong with the Wikitext on this page. I tried to add the following stuff and it would not make it in the same format. I recommend making the difference between editions clear; not everyone likes the ones that came after AD&D versions.

I finally managed to add all the OD&D through AD&D2 classes I mentioned on the talk page. I don't play the officially numbered "3rd ed." (which, excluding AD&D, was the 6th distinct edition, which you should still be able to see in the Wikipedia link I added in the article) or later, but maybe someone can list the classes from those, though they're not as classic, and are mostly more like the AD&D "kit classes" which had started as altered core or other classes, but led to an excess of classes, IMO. Nevertheless, they seem relevant for the list; I'm just not going to deal with them.--Darwin (t|c) 07:41, 13 June 2017 (CEST)
