Do we need to create "First appearance" entries and article pages for pinatas like Florence who may only only show up in one episode? --FeralKitty 10:04, 30 September 2006 (EDT)

I'm not in charge here, but if memory of my 5th grade Literature class serves me, I believe that Florence is considered a secondary character, which probably signifigant enough to make a page and entry, but I haven't heard from Jim since mid-day yesterday so I assume he's busy. -Spartan

I haven't watched the episode yet, but if they get a name and have a speaking role, then we might as well treat them like any other character. Who knows, maybe Florence will be back? --Jimmcq 13:47, 30 September 2006 (EDT)

Down the road, after over 50 episodes are out, we may have a hundred (first) names on the cast page. That's good if we want to be an unabridged reference on every possible cast member or if someone is just arbitrarily following links to discover new characters. It's just going to amount to a lot of links, and become harder to visually navigate/find information. Also, there's not much to actually say on an article page -- a couple of sentences really doesn't make an article.

One idea is to have a Minor Cast page, where we can write a sentence or two about each character, and if they turn out to show up in more episodes and play a recurring role in the show, we can move them to their own page and feature them in the Cast category. Until then, they could still be mentioned in First appearance, and just linked to [[Minor Cast#Florence]] instead of their own page. --FeralKitty 14:24, 30 September 2006 (EDT)

Hmmm... *thinking* I personally want a page on every character with a name to have a page, but just like having a page on every accessory, they would be to hard to navigate and maintain. I agree with Feral. Do we kick this page off know? -Spartan

Yes, I think you're right. Something like this would be good. Also, if anybody wants to write up a more detailed 'plot' summary that would be nice. The article about each episiode doesn't have to be so short... A couple more paragraphs would be good. --Jimmcq 14:36, 30 September 2006 (EDT)

I agree those summaries are vague, but I always assumed they were that way so not to spoil the end. I can write up a more detailed one but do I have to work of the existing one or can I delete it and start over? -Spartan

You can start fresh if you'd like... The short description on the big 'List' page should stay as is because those are sort of 'official', but try and use what's on the episode's own page as a basis, but you don't have to. --Jimmcq 14:53, 30 September 2006 (EDT)

Alright hope you like it, it could use some editing and some of my tenses are out of place but over all I'm satisfied. I'll write up more later. -Spartan

Looks great!!! --Jimmcq 15:28, 30 September 2006 (EDT)

Agreed! It's great to see plot content like that, to fill out the page! --FeralKitty 15:35, 30 September 2006 (EDT)

Thanks, I'll try and get the rest of them up soon. I'll do one more now then the rest later. --Spartan
