"Water generation" is a common name for what the mermaid performer can do.


It's a common scientific name for what the mermaid performer does. See here for a real-life example.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:59, 11 April 2009 (EDT)

Make or not to make?

I'm not sure whether to make an article for this. It is a demonstrated ability, but we don't have any kind of image to use for it. I'm not opposed to having a page for it, but I will understand if the consensus is to just keep the information on the mermaid performer's page. I've added a redirect to her page for it for the time being.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:46, 11 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Well, since we've made the light absorption page, it's not good to keep this page unmade, since it has been demonstrated in the iStory to the same degree that light absorption has. However, there's no image for it, so I guess we'll just have to use Image:Blank.jpg. --Radicell 21:23, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
    • I agree; it's probably better to make it and use the Blank.jpg image until one is given to us in the story.--MiamiVolts (talk) 21:43, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
      • Shouldn't this be placed in the abilities section of the template, not the graphic novel section?--Steely McBeam - (talk) 03:08, 12 April 2009 (EDT)

List of abilities

Perhaps on the List of abilities page we should make a section for Unseen abilities? Light absoprtion, water generation, crazy grin man's ability, ect. All that stuff can go in there and still have links to their own pages, but it just looks wierd having them in with all the other powers we have images for.--Piemanmoo 03:21, 13 April 2009 (EDT)

  • How about a seperate section for the istory powers, so the page is split into two? So like this:

Abilities How current page is without Istory powers Istory Abilities Istory powers only? --Fr0z3nB0nes 09:16, 13 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Please move this discussion to Talk:List of abilities... I think an unseen abilities section on the page might be a good idea, but this is the wrong place to discuss it.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:59, 13 April 2009 (EDT)
