Cleanups and Signatures

Hey Bob, you thanked me for doing cleanups -- thank you for your contributions to the site and adding the info in the first place.

On a completely unrelated note, I noticed you've been adding your signature manually. Though this is perfectly acceptable, there are easier ways to add a more complete signature. You can type four tildes: ~~~~. Or you can press the signature button. (See here for more information.) Hope that helps! :) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:22, 23 February 2007 (EST)


...lists the characters in order of appearance within the episode.--Hardvice (talk) 01:35, 27 February 2007 (EST)

Chronological sorting

  • I'm thinking it's going to be more consistent if when sorting chronologically we continue to go by episode rather than by time itself. Aside from consistency it could be argued that the ordering is relative to different people. Relative to Hiro the gun was found early on, but relative to someone not travelling in time it would have been found later in the future. (Admin 02:41, 6 March 2007 (EST))
    • Though to prevent confusion we can always make sure that we specify that it's taking place in the past or future (relative to someone not travelling in time, like us). (Admin 02:44, 6 March 2007 (EST))
      • Yeah, I made sure it has "in the future" or "future timeline" at the end.--Baldbobbo 02:46, 6 March 2007 (EST)
        • But how about the sort itself? Right now the gun Hiro finds in Don't Look Back is at the end of the gallery. I think it should be up with the other picture from Don't Look Back so that they remain sorted by episode. This also helps keep us from getting sucked into the details of time travel, alternate timelines, etc. (Admin 02:48, 6 March 2007 (EST))
        • Whichever you feel is more appropriate. I could go either way, just that on a few pages, pics from the future were at the end (may have been changed afterwards, but I had seen a few).--Baldbobbo 02:50, 6 March 2007 (EST)
          • You're right, we haven't had much consistency with how we've sorted things. Some sections are time-ordered, others are episode-ordered. Others are hybrid versions. I agree with Admin -- it's probably best to go with the order of the episodes, especially in light of the non-linear story-telling structure. (Don't you just love time travel and flashbacks?) If someone is confused, they can always check the timeline or the episode summary. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:34, 7 March 2007 (EST)
  • Believe or not, there actually was an implication that Dallas has an ability. Reread the graphic novel where he is introduced and you will discover that he seems to have an ability related to probability.


  • Hey, Bob ... Thanks so much for cleaning up the theories. They're such a beast, and I can't stand doing them. I really appreciate the work you're doing on them. :) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:03, 10 April 2007 (EDT)
    • Not a problem. I was sick today, so I didn't go to class. Figured I could knock out at least one page. The evolved humans page is ridiculous, so that would have taken all night, plus with randoms editing it every 20-50min, it's a little too daunting. Hopefully when people add to the People page they'll see the formatting.--Bob 20:33, 10 April 2007 (EDT)
  • Yes, very well done! :) (Admin 01:51, 11 April 2007 (EDT))
