  • Be aware, first, that when a nameless character is given a page, disambiguation is a last resort. If a character in Adventure in Somewhere in City were from Somewhere City, unnamed, a dognose, and a blacksmith, you would call his page Dog (Adventure in Somewhere City) or Blacksmith (Adventure in Somewhere City), but that's kind of terrible. We would instead call such a page Somewhere City Blacksmith

    Secondly… I told you once and I'll tell you again, we don't need pages about every last item and background-passerby in a given story. There is no need for pages about "the anvil from The Weighted Crate Mystery” or whatever, and not necessarily for minor characters like the Auctioneer from same, though the latter are more forgivable. 

    Moreover, the “X, Y or Z stories” categories are only for characters, not for objects. Even if we did have a page about the freakin' anvil, it would not result in the story being categorized “Anvil (The Weighted Crate Mystery) stories”. I mean really now. 

    And finally, the “It features……” part of the lead should include links to all the characters in the story, not just the recurring ones. So if you do create pages for the Auctioneer, the Experts and so on, the lead should also mention them.

    • a.) Thanks, I will do that from now on.

      b.) Ye... sorry about that.

      c.) Ok, but I won't really be listing objects anyway, but I'll try and keep that in mind.

      d.) Yes, when I first write 'It features' I usually only include the main characters, or characters on the first page. By the time I've got to adding categories, I've completely forgotten about it.

      Thanks for letting me know or reminding me, I'll try to use these methods (Is that what I should call them?) from now on.

  • As you'll have seen by now, the "unnamed dogs" from that story are actually recurring characters, Scuttle and Dum-Dum, so I've redirected accordingly. 

    But also, what is with that persistent habit of yours of marking down any and all characters as being Elm City inhabitants? They're not! Elm City is a random one-shot city!

    • Sorry, right, I didn't know that. Thanks for telling me and thanks for redirecting. I'll check them out now.

      (Sorry)

      (Now that I think about it Dum-Dum did look a bit like a Beagle Boy...)
