New articles

Hi, Fathomer. You recently created two new articles (canned food and Deputy Gill's gun). Both of these articles were deleted on the account that they are not considered very significant. Ultimately, they are cruft. Before creating another similar article, please check with the community (the community portal talk page is a good place for that kind of discussion) to see if there is consensus to create an article about seemingly insignificant items. Or better yet, create the articles in your user namespace (User:Fathomer/Deputy Gill's gun, for instance) and then nominate it to be moved into the main namespace. If you need me to clarify anything or if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Thank you. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:15, 27 April 2010 (EDT)

  • Actually, it was "Frozen meat". And I don't understand how they're insignificant -- they've been featured onscreen on Heroes, and this is a wiki about all things Heroes... isn't it? And thanks for the pointer about the user-space, that might help. Still could you explain why they're considered "cruft"? Fathomer 08:06, 28 April 2010 (EDT)
    • Hello Fathomer, I just wanted to come and say my opinion in between, cause there have been moments I'd wished we created articles for everything, be object, person or concept, in Heroes. However Heroeswiki is not exactly an encyclopedia or catalogue that would have articles for each and every thing in the Heroesverse. If so, we would need to have articles for Wildcats Cheerleaders, Zach's bicycle, Zach's video camera, Peter's stethoscope, Mohinder's umbrella, Nirand's umbrella, Chandra Suresh's laptop, Niki's video camera, Niki's laptop, Micah's pinhole camera and this list would go like forever. If Heroeswiki would be so, than we would have a really big burden of identifying each and every object, concept and sight in the Heroesverse (also be it in an episode, gn or iStory etc.) and that's really a huge task. As I also came to understand with time when I first started editing, there is a concept of relevancy here in HW. It's not a statistical site but a fan site actually, best fan site I would call as it has quite rational conceptions and ways to present things onsite. You know, there are in-universe things and also real world things such as the crew and cast etc. So, the concept of relevancy is important. We can't list everything with their own articles but HW has its own style to do that, some things are listed and included within more relevant articles and some very detailed things are on subpages of the users. I've wished before and also some other users to use this site to mention everything Heroes and subpages and links exist for such kind of things, see here.
