With the newly divided page, where does the tally go? Do we have a tally for S1 alone, S2 alone, S3 alone, and S4 alone on their respective pages, and a total tally elsewhere? -- Tristan0709 talk 20:42, 20 November 2009 (EST)

Archival footage

This idea came to me when I was looking at the list of character appearances for the most recent episode. I think we should italicize characters who appear exclusively in archived footage. This will save some people the disappointment when they're about to watch the episode and find out through the article that old characters will be returning in it, and it just helps make the lists more specific. We could include this and bolded names in a key at the bottom/top of the Character Appearances section. What does everybody think?--Citizen 21:28, 26 January 2010 (EST)

  • I don't mind, but do people really read the appearances page and then go watch the episodes? I thought that page was just a page to collect all the appearances. It's not a bad idea, though. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:33, 26 January 2010 (EST)
    • No offense against any one, but I think that this is a stupid choice. Especially when you go to the talley of webisode/gn/istory and the people who havent appeared in episodes are italicized. I just dont agree... sorry ~~IHHTalk 20:45, 26 January 2010 (EST)
      • Can you rephrase that, please?--Citizen 21:27, 26 January 2010 (EST)
        • Although poorly worded, IHH, you make a very good point. We use italics on the other appearance pages to denote people who have and haven't appeared in episodes. Hmm. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:41, 26 January 2010 (EST)
          • Sorry, I was just rattling on my thoughts and not rereading to make sense of it! Sorry ~~IHHTalk 21:59, 26 January 2010 (EST)
            • No worries. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:34, 26 January 2010 (EST)
              • We could add the key/legend to just episode pages.--Citizen 22:51, 26 January 2010 (EST)
                • i don't know what way you'd do it, but I think it should be noted... you don't want someone seeing Tom Miller's name in the Art of Deception page to then go and ask on the talk page how he was in it "because cause he is dead", then you've got to explain it was archival footage. It would save time and effort, even if it is just a note. --mc_hammark 12:37, 27 January 2010 (EST)
                  • How about just an asterisk (*) following the person's name, with a key on the bottom of the page explaining what the asterisk is for? I can change the general appearance template pretty easily, but I'll ask somebody else to go through all the episodes and mark which characters are from archival footage. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:44, 27 January 2010 (EST)
                    • An asterisk would be fine with me, I think we've used the asterisk somewhere before and that was fine, so it should be fine here. --mc_hammark 14:49, 27 January 2010 (EST)
                      • I'm glad an agreement has been reached. :-). I'll get on this soon. By the way, was Four Months Ago... the first episode to use archival footage?--Citizen 16:25, 27 January 2010 (EST)
                        • No, HTSAEM had archival footage of Sylar's victims, after Hiro stabbed him. I can't remember anything before that though. I'll probably be watching S1 in a couple of weeks after S4 finishes, so we can work on it soon. --mc_hammark 16:32, 27 January 2010 (EST)
                          • Sounds good, we can start when season four ends. Your help, and anyone else's, would be much appreciate.--Citizen 17:33, 27 January 2010 (EST)

Hey is this still going to happen? I think it'd be a good idea. --Skullman1392 19:47, 21 April 2010 (EDT)

Former Characters

Should this page really include statistics from past seasons? --Boycool Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse wouldn't quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out. Amen. 08:56, 29 May 2010 (EDT)
