Ryan Odagawa has a MySpace page. He said he thinks it's rmo120, but I couldn't find anything, and he can't remember. Anybody want to go searching? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 09:03, 27 June 2007 (EDT)

  • Found it on google, it's here.--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:42, 4 July 2007 (EDT)
    • Odagawa, you just deleted your myspace link. On purpose?--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:06, 7 July 2007 (EDT)
      • Yes, he changed his mind. He emailed me and told me he felt some things were too self-indulgent. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:22, 8 July 2007 (EDT)

Odagawa.com

On his main website, odagawa.com, there is a bridge you are supposed to click to cross. I click it and nothing changes on the website. Anyone else have this problem?--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:49, 4 July 2007 (EDT)

Rename External Links...

Why not just rename 'External Links'? I don't get how an internal wiki interview fits as an external link...--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:37, 6 August 2007 (EDT)

  • We're not going to rename External Links section on a thousand pages--that would be silly. The links section on cast and crew pages is where we put interviews. For consistency, if someone is looking for an interview, they should look in one place, not two just because the interview's text is hosted on our site. If it's that big a deal, we can just get rid of the link altogether because I'm not that crazy about having the so-so "interview" on the page in the first place. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:16, 6 August 2007 (EDT)
    • This is bigger than just this one interview. As we will probably do a multitude more interviews over the history of the show, how about we put this in the infobox?--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:53, 6 August 2007 (EDT)
      • That somehow implies a greater importance to the interview than it actually is. It's just an interview and should be included with other interviews. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:06, 7 August 2007 (EDT)
        • We have a primary website, why not a primary interview? I guess I don't get it, cause to me the fact that it was done by a heroeswiki user makes it more important.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:13, 7 August 2007 (EDT)
          • An interview is an interview. I'd disagree that it's necessarily any more special (though it's definitely well done :) ); I think it makes sense to organize them with the other interviews. (Admin 00:21, 7 August 2007 (EDT))
      • Well, I agree that it isn't an external link exactly since it's to an article within the wiki and therefore usually it would go in the Notes or Trivia section probably. However since a majority if interviews are indeed on external sites, I think it makes more sense to bend the rules so to speak and include the Heroes Wiki interview in with the other interviews. If anything "External Links" could be renamed to "Links" perhaps, but that's a lot of work without much actual gain. I think calling it an "external link" isn't too bad. (Admin 00:21, 7 August 2007 (EDT))
        • There's only like four Heroes Wiki interviews, so we'd only have to rename the section header on those four articles, right? I'm not seeing the lot of work...--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:26, 7 August 2007 (EDT)
          • If we only renamed four articles' headings, then we'd have four articles with nonstandard headings, which seems odd just so we can include a link to an interview which just happens to be hosted on Heroes Wiki, and not some other site. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:31, 7 August 2007 (EDT)
            • Looks like your opinion is that its odder to have special header names than to have slightly incorrect ones. It's not that important to me, but it seems a little twisted. Can we still take option (b) and just delete the link(s)?--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:47, 7 August 2007 (EDT)
              • The use of "External Links" is standard across the wiki. He's saying, and I agree, that changing the name for only a few articles thereby making those articles non-standard is worse than just referring to a Heroes Wiki interview as an external link. I think this is a case of making a mountain out of a molehill. I don't see anything particularly bad about the interviews going in the External Links where they will be located amongst other interview links. (Admin 00:56, 7 August 2007 (EDT))
                • Thanks to both of you for explaining. I'll just note that there may be cases were there are no other interviews for the article, and where the other external links like Myspace or fan sites are included. Are we to take those on a case-by-case basis?
