How will this page change when Season 2 starts rolling? Will we Distinguish between Season 1 and 2 main cast for example?--SacValleyDweller 16:11, 31 August 2007 (EDT)

  • We haven't really discussed it yet, though something will definitely have to be done. Here's what I see as our options:
    1. Keep adding new cast members until the thing explodes.
    2. Make a new set of portals for each season...until Category:Portals explodes.
    3. Make one new portal for "Former Principal Cast" or something, then keep everything else the way it is.
  • I'm sure there are other options, but obviously I've made it pretty clear what I'm thinking. My thought is that the only true designation is that of the principal cast--that category comes directly from NBC. If somebody gets promoted (hello, James, Zachary, and Dania), we move them to Portal:Principal Cast. If somebody gets bumped down (bye bye, Tawny, Santiago, and Leonard) we move them into "Portal:Former Principal Cast" (or whatever we decide to call it). All the other categories are continually changing and fluctuating based on appearances. It's sort of an arbitrary designation, so I don't mind keeping it thus. For instance, if Audrey never appears again, we drop her down a level to make room for a new supporting player. (Namasté Sanjog, hola Alejandro.) Anyway, that's my thought, but I'm open to other ideas of course. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:42, 31 August 2007 (EDT)
    • Actually, after having mulled it over a bit, I wouldn't be opposed to making a whole new set of portals for season two. There would be a lot of overlap with the main actors, but I think that's okay. It would certainly help to keep the minor actors organized. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:23, 31 August 2007 (EDT)
      • That way, all the minor characters could also be in a "season one" category, otherwise they will all explode. And who wants to see an exploded Francis on their monitor? Not me, that's for certain. --DocM 18:52, 31 August 2007 (EDT)
        • :) Right. Since some of the actors will be in multiple seasons, it would mean they'd be in multiple portals. For instance, I know Tohoru Masamune is returning for Season Two. I don't mind seeing him in more than one portal; I don't think there's anything wrong with that. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:15, 31 August 2007 (EDT)
  • So are we essentially archiving Season One, even though the actor/actress may keep the same status within the cast (principal/minor, etc.)? Sounds good to me.--Bob 19:31, 1 September 2007 (EDT)
    • Right, at least that's how I'm envisioning it (though there are other options, too). It means we'd also have to archive the other portals, too, since people like James Kyson Lee and Zachary Quinto won't be supporting characters anymore. As well, some minor characters are returning (Tohoru Masamune in particular), so if they're in multiple seasons, they'd be in multiple portals. At first this bothered me for some reason, but not so much anymore. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:48, 1 September 2007 (EDT)
