To list the characters as they are known at the time of the release might seem like a good idea, but it totally spoils the point including # of appearances in List of character appearances by graphic novel, since it makes it impossible to trace the characters ("Evs Dropper clone" is said to make his third appearance in "Into the Wild, Part 1", although he currently appears not to be mentioned prior in the list (unless you know that "Escape clone" is another fan-made reference to him. The comparison with Mr Bennet isn't valid, since "Mr. Bennet" was what he officially was referred to prior to ep#1x23. "Evs Dropper clone" and "Escape clone" are both fanmade terms, and to list him as both only is confusing. Pierre 15:46, 8 September 2008 (EDT)

  • A better comparison would be with "Austin" and "Dallas" or Kensei. It's what we have done, and it does make sense if you are following the plots.--Bob (talk) 14:18, 12 September 2008 (EDT)
    • Austin and Dallas are great examples. The issue is not about using multiple fan-made terms, but about putting information on the page that is chronologically incorrect. We didn't know he was part of Evs Dropper during his first appearances, so it's incongruous to put that name for his first appearance. I'd rather continue with "escape clone" than change earlier appearances...though that seems just as bad since we'd continue using a name that isn't as exact or specific. The bottom line is that as the story keeps changing and evolving and things continue to be revealed, names of characters may also change and evolve. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:33, 12 September 2008 (EDT)
