  • I think adding all the "unnamed woman/fiance/sister" info makes the character description awkward and overly-long...I'm curious as to why you chose to add that?

    • I would imagine if it's in the character infobox, that would be enough. Keeping it as "the son of Tony Zucco" in the description condenses it enough without repeating what's already stated elsewhere in the article.

    • Because generally speaking mentioning their immediate family is considered important. Though admittedly, I can understand removing unnamed relatives from the intro to remove clutter.

  • Why is the episode at that name and the person has (character) behind it? Surely the latter is more important.

    • That's a matter of personal opinion. We have a naming guide that we follow and should explain why they're named as such.

    • The character gets far more page views (as seen on Special:Insights, and a lot of the page views for the episode is bound to be people searching for the character and landing there instead), and far more links to it (as seen on Special:WhatLinksHere, and out of the 9 pages that link to the episode, 1 is a redirect and 4 contain links that are actually meant for the character). Additionally, as a series progresses an old episode becomes less relevant and less looked up but a (if not the) main character remains important. But then it's your wiki, so do as you wish. Got to say though, it's a bit unusual for a series to use the full names of main characters as episode names, titles or just first or last name is more common and would avoid an exact duplicate, that's a shame.

    • I totally hear what you're saying, but I've found that, working on a number of wikis previously, having this sort of hierarchy generally works best. Of course, I'm not averse to changing it in the future, but for now it's not really a problem.

    • Very well. I would change those links, then.

  • Hey! I wanted to stop by to make sure that you saw the updated response to your spam filter report on 7 November.

    You are able to rename the page to "John" now if you so desire. There shouldn't be any problems with doing so. Sorry it prevented you before, but it's fixed now. Thanks!

    • Thank you! It's no problem, I'm sure there was a reason there was a spam filter on it.

  • Hello, I have taken an interest in this show and found this wikia. I was going through it and noticed that it has a lot of potential of expanding certain things such as the home page. I have been on wikia for about 5 years now I’m excellent at coding. I’m asking if it’s okay to make various changes to make this wiki better. Of course I would run big changes through you first of course. Thank you 😊

  • Hey there! I did a little something on that homepage. Needs a bit of work on it though. Especially the heading design of the characters panel.

    • Ah, thank you! I've been meaning to mess around with it, so that's at least a bit better!

  • Hi, I was wondering why my physical appearance section of Kory's article was deleted. Almost all, if not all, wikis have them for the characters, because appearance is a part of characterization and plays a role in the characters' interactions with others and often reflect their disposition and circumstances. I want to know if you are adamant in excluding character physical appearance sections and will that apply to all of the character pages. Excuse my grammar. Have a good day.

    • A good lot of wikis don't have them, actually, and I find they can often be incredibly arbitrary, given that a character could potentially change their appearance episode to episode on a whim. I sort of get where you're coming from, but I'm not sure I entirely agree with it.

  • Why have character pages been deleted? Isn't it helpful to start early and to be ready before the first episode drops?

    • I'll simplify it for you:

      Any un aired material (characters, location, objects, etc.) are considered as spoiler and we tend to avoid putting up details early because to some it can be viewed as a spoiler. Even if they are confirmed to appear or appeared in a trailer/promo, we do not upload them unless they make a full and final appearance in the episodes.

    • It's largely to do with the fact that future content can be both dubious and incomplete, so we consider it best to just not add it until it's officially released.

  • I was the admin of the other wiki which just merged with this one, and I was under the impression that wiki was to be merged with the other one which is why I kept working on it. Since I just found out that this was wrong, all of my work has been lost, which is annoying.

    Anyway, since I was an active admin of the other wiki, I was wondering whether I could be made admin of this wiki.

    • Apologies, I must've looked at your message then forgotten to reply. As was my understanding, we were hard at work here before you guys started your wiki. I appreciate your work ethic, but I'm not sure that warrants promoting you here also. Of course, that's not to say we won't need admins in the future, we of course will.

  • I want to let you know there's a duplicate wiki and a staff member seems to be working on it. They have the url and you might want to report about it to him.

    • Yeah I actually noticed it about an hour before your message haha, I do plan on getting on top of it.
