Thompson as Human vs Evolved Human

Thompson (along with many many others) has not shown any evidence of powers as of yet. I think he should go in Category:Humans until he proves otherwise. Anybody agree/disagree? - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:07, 3 January 2007 (EST)

  • My opinion was that he shouldn't go into either category until we know more. He'll still be in the "Characters" category. --Ted C 15:15, 3 January 2007 (EST)
    • Category:Humans clearly states that it's for anyone who hasn't displayed powers. The division isn't into normal humans and evolved humans, it's into confirmed evolved humans and everyone else. Micah was in "Humans"until he used his powers; so was Hana. "Humans" and "Evolved Humans" should be exhaustive.--Hardvice (talk) 15:22, 3 January 2007 (EST)
      • Very well. --Ted C 15:24, 3 January 2007 (EST)

face half in darkness

Anybody else notice it seemed like half Thompson's face was in darkness for a lot of his shots? --Frantik (Talk) 00:05, 27 February 2007 (EST)

History merge

From Talk:Company field leader

Sorry to post here, but this concerns the redirect and not the article on Thompson.

This page needs to be properly merged (delete Thompson, move this there, then restore Thompson and rollback) in order to attribute the HDYSAEM sections on Thompson's page with this page's authors. Regardless of the licensing, that just seems like the right thing to do.--Tim Thomason 20:02, 6 June 2007 (EDT)

  • We can merge this discussion history with the discussion history at Talk:Thompson if needed, but it seems kind of pointless. There are no open discussions on this page (save this thread), so this page serves as an archive of previous discussions. As the link above says, any new discussions should be posted on Talk:Thompson. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:51, 6 June 2007 (EDT)
    • Sorry, let me rephrase that. Company field leader (not the talk page) needs to be properly merged with Thompson in my opinion, as the section on Thompson's Cfl days appears to be a copy-and-paste move. If we merge them together (as opposed to simply making the one a redirect as it currently is) then the history will show the natural progression of the page and character.--Tim Thomason 18:28, 8 June 2007 (EDT)
      • I don't really see the need for this aside from someone trying to take credit for something that's really not much since it's from one GN. The talk pages show the progression, which is sufficient for me and most others from the other discussion page.--Bob 18:36, 8 June 2007 (EDT)
        • Agree. All the necessary info is there, and anything that's not in the history is covered in the talk pages. Besides, deleting Thompson and the performing a move will erase the history. It actually seems counterproductive. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:21, 8 June 2007 (EDT)

First name

Since we now know his son's first name is Eric and is a Jr., can we move this article to "Eric Thompson"?--MiamiVolts (talk) 06:21, 16 September 2008 (EDT)

Nope. For all we know, the "Jr." refers to "Thompson" not "Eric". Pierre 06:43, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Right. I'm often called "Junior", though my father and I have different names. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:52, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
There's a different between being called Jr. and having Jr. being part of your name; if "Jr." is part of your name, it normally requires you to have the same first, middle and last name. I'll add it to the list of potential interview questions.--MiamiVolts (talk) 06:54, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Huh. Where has it been hinted that "Jr" is a part of Eric's name?? Pierre 07:02, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Well, it's on Cushing's assignment tracker. I don't think the Company would use a nickname to refer to an agent on a formal document. (Scarlet Girl) 6:59 PM, 17 September 2008 (Brasilia time)
At the same time, if his name is Eric, they would have called him Eric in the profile. We have to remember that references to Thompson, Jr. prior to the release of Into the Wild, Part 3 were such that they wouldn't reveal a first name. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:51, 17 September 2008 (EDT)
You have a point, but in other Assignment Tracker profiles, the Company has mentioned agents only by their last name when they have a minor part, as in Lewis's profile, when they say he was recovered by Agents Dunlap and Thompson (not Donna Dunlap). (Sorry for any grammar errors) (Scarlet Girl, 21:57, 17 September 2008 (Brasilia time).
  • In the interview, the question asked was "If Thompson was a junior, does that mean his father was also named Eric? Or was "Junior" a nickname?" Jim Martin and Timm Keppler slyly answered, "Yes." They were being ambiguous so as not to answer the question directly. In other words, we still don't know whether Mr. Thompson was Eric or not--and that's the way the writers want it. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:43, 24 October 2008 (EDT)
    • We used this same logic to determine that Flint's father's name is also Flint. No one uses the phrase "(lastname) Jr." unless the first name is also the same. --Ricard Desi (t,c) 13:17, 26 December 2008 (EST)
      • I guess we have confirmation now, as Rebellion Part 5 says that his son's name is Eric Thompson Jr.--Gibbeynator 07:00, 16 June 2009 (EDT)
