Headers

I removed the webisode name headers for this portal. If we do re-add them, Portal:Webisodes Cast and Portal:Webisodes Crew should probably also get headers... I don't mind if someone wants to restore them and do the other portals as no one is really recurring yet. I just removed it for now so we're consistent.--MiamiVolts (talk) 04:00, 11 November 2008 (EST)

  • I think we'd need them for Characters, but not really for Cast/Crew. With Cast/Crew.. we'd know "Oh, these people portrayed Webisodes characters" and "Oh, these people worked on the Webisodes". On the other hand, the Characters could soon get crowdy, and everyone is mixed together in alphabetical order. I think the headers should be added back to Characters, just like they are on the Future characters page. Radicell 04:42, 11 November 2008 (EST)
    • For the webisodes, Cast is just as big as Characters since there's a 1:1 ratio normally. Also, the credits give even more Crew members than Cast. I'm not sure I see your logic.--MiamiVolts (talk) 04:47, 11 November 2008 (EST)
      • Oh right, cast. The pages can be left as is right now I guess, but I would strongly recommend categorizing them (with Webisode series) once more characters are revealed. Radicell 08:11, 11 November 2008 (EST)

Episodic characters removed

To sort out the all characters versus only non-episodic characters dispute, I've gone ahead and removed episodic characters for now. To me, the only problem this causes is that Portal:The Recruit Characters only has Carlos in it (and isn't each portal supposed to have at least 4 characters?). The The Recruit series of webisodes doesn't look like it churns out much new characters, and I'm afraid we won't be seeing too many non-episodic characters appearing in it, other than Carlos. So, we're gonna either have to keep that portal with only Carlos in it, or we need to revert the changes and leave this category of Webisodes Characters as different to all the other Character portals. --Radicell 20:09, 30 December 2008 (EST)

Unsplit

Portal:The Recruit Characters currently only has 2 characters in it, which is under the 4-item limit for portals, isn't it? Also, the upcoming series Nowhere Man is rumored to only showcase one new character, which would mean a 1-character portal for that series, which also isn't much of a portal at all. For this reason, I'm suggesting that the individual series character portals be merged back into Portal:Webisodes Characters, with a layout similar to Portal:iStory Characters. --Radicell 05:27, 18 April 2009 (EDT)

  • As far as I can discern, the trailer for Nowhere Man shows at least two new characters, and so far only one old one. -- Tristan0709 talk 06:26, 18 April 2009 (EDT)
    • I guess only one of them merits an article. Portal:Nowhere Man Characters is currently a 1-character portal, as envisioned. I don't have too much of a problem with that, and can live with it, but it still bothers me that it's not much a portal. For that reason, I still believe that a merge back into one portal with separate sub-headings is in order. --Radicell 06:05, 21 April 2009 (EDT)
        • Okay, I've got an idea that might solve this. Instead of categorizing the webisodes characters by series, as it is currently done, why not make character-related portals for them, to mirror Portal:Graphic Novel Characters. The current set of characters would be converted as follows:
Echo-Related Webisodes Characters, would include all the characters currently under Portal:Going Postal Characters
Knox-Related Webisodes Characters, would include all the characters currently under Portal:Hard Knox Characters
Santiago-Related Webisodes Characters, would include all the characters currently under Portal:Destiny Characters
Miscellaneous Webisodes Characters, would include all the characters currently under Portal:The Recruit Characters and Portal:Nowhere Man Characters.

This way, we do away with portals that have too little items in them. Granted, the new Miscellaneous category would still have 3 characters in it, which is under the standard 4, but that will change with the release of more webisodes. --Radicell 04:22, 23 April 2009 (EDT)
