What to do?

I'm not sure at all about what to do with this novel. It is listed as a real novel on the website, but it has no JPG files, no new content, just a bunch of old graphic novels bunched together. Pretty much like Path to Redemption. Do we have an appearances template? Do we write a summary? Do we create an image category? :S --Radicell 18:51, 10 March 2010 (EST)

  • I'd think since it has it's own number, we should have the page. We can't exactly miss a number out (unless the next primatech one is #168). I'd say that at the top or in the notes, point out that it is a collection of previous GNs featuring Hiro, then under the summary leave links to the other main pages for each gn included, with a small summary for the collection in general; eg "Future Hiro and Future Peter help prisoners escape from a detention center. Hiro remembers his past and thinks about his mother". I wouldn't bother with an image category. And I wouldn't count them as an appearance template. I suppose, this is kinda like when NBC showed one episode twice during (i think it was) volume 3 or 4. We wouldn't count that as an appearance, it's more of a recap/filler. --mc_hammark 18:58, 10 March 2010 (EST)
    • I wouldn't even put a summary for each of the novels--just a list of the novels that are included in it. I agree, I wouldn't do an image category and I definitely wouldn't do an appearance template. (One difference between this and Path to Redemption is that this novel collection has no new content, as far as I can tell.) Also, I wouldn't change template:currentgn. However, somebody might want to go through and compare the original novels to the novels in this collection to see if there are any differences. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:16, 10 March 2010 (EST)
      • There is no link anymore for the Novel Approach on NBC.com. Do we have to keep this Novel collection? --LIMAFOX76 08:42, 16 March 2010 (EDT)

So...

So, now we will see...

  • Week 1: From the Files of Primatech
  • Week 2: Novel Approach
  • Week 3: From the Files of Primatech....

for all the hiatus before volume 6? --Tanderix 04:21, 12 March 2010 (EST)

    • It's actually like this:
      • Week 1=Primatech 1
      • Week 2=nothing
      • Week 3=Primatech 2
      • Week 4=Novel Approach
    • Week 5 will probably bring us Primatech 3. I don't know if there are any other "Novel Approach" compilations planned. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:02, 13 March 2010 (EST)
