Split it up, boys, split it up

I think we're ready to split the references. There's lots of ways we can do this. Movies, books, conditions, companies/organizations, and, um, waffles. I think for now, we should still keep it simple: maybe "Art" or "Works of Art" (meaning movies, books, etc.) and "Other References"? I don't know. We could also split it into multiple categories, but each would be rather small. Ideas? - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:31, 31 January 2007 (EST)

I'd say "Media References" to include other shows, comics, etc. --Ted C 12:35, 31 January 2007 (EST)
Ah, yes, that's the term I was looking for. - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:44, 31 January 2007 (EST)
If we do it categorically, I think we're stuck with "Media References" and everything else. Maybe just make "Media References" or whatever a subcat, and leave everything else loose in "References", like items? We can also just split it alphabetically, but I think that's better suited to people than things.--Hardvice (talk) 13:20, 31 January 2007 (EST)
I agree. I don't think alphabetical works the best, mostly because the references are so disparate. I like the idea of a subcat - much easier. I'll work on that later tonight or tomorrow, unless somebody wants to do it now. - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:21, 31 January 2007 (EST)
Definitely time to split now. The manatees did it for me.--Hardvice (talk) 17:07, 6 February 2007 (EST)
I think "pop culture" should be one of the subcatagories, and then maybe organizations. Possibly animals, but I'd be fine if they were in miscelaneous. --Fcphantom 22:03, 6 February 2007 (EST)
I added Portal:References to other works, but everything that's left ... it's still too big for one portal, but any meaningful divisions make too many too small portals. Hmmm.--Hardvice (talk) 23:11, 6 February 2007 (EST)
Well, it's a start. Let's do the split and then let it evolve. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:51, 7 February 2007 (EST)
  • I have to agree that we do need to split this apart. Perhaps also define what we mean by references. There are groups and events that could be placed here too. --Pinkkeith 12:20, 23 November 2007 (EST)
  • We really ought to define what we mean by "references". Characters could be references, if we define it as broadly as we are right now. I think it we should stick to things (products, events, etc) that are mentioned but not actually in the show or in the graphic novel. For example, right now we have Hurricane Katrina under the event portal/template and we have the Vietnam War under the real-world reference portal/template. Product placement should be its on portal with Nissan Versa placed under it. Its not really a reference under my definition, since it was shown in the show. There ought to be references to animals with Dinosaur, and Manatee placed under it. Cockroaches have been actually seen in the show. These are just my thoughts. We could define references some other way.
    • I agree that there needs to be some definition, and a split really does need to occur. Portal:References until now has been a sort of dumping ground for articles that don't really fit anywhere else. Let me look at it and come up with some ideas... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:36, 24 November 2007 (EST)
