Interesting[edit]

This is an interesting idea. ^^ How exactly is it going to work? CarpetCrawlermessage me 01:57, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Basically, each character will have its own "Appearances" page. On there, all the episodes, movies, ovas, openings, etc.. he/she has appeared in will be listed. The new extension will simply auto-calculate all of those appearances and those numbers will automatically be reported to the corresponding character's page in the InfoBox. Therefore, all we need to do to update a character's appearances' statistics is to update the lists on that character's appearance page and that's all. The great advantage is of course that the data is always consistent (and accurate) no matter which page you're on since it all comes from one single spot. The other awesome thing is that there's now an easy way to list episodes, movies, etc.. by character appearance, which was something we couldn't really do before (unless maybe we started adding character names as a category to each episodes, movies, etc.. page but that would really get messy if there were like 20 characters starring in a given episode for example => the category section at the bottom of the page would be huge). Oh and I know that a lot of people often ask "What episodes/movies/ovas/etc.. features Kaitou Kid?". Now, all they need to do is check out Kaitou Kid Appearances. ^^ I personally think it's a good addition. What do you think?
And I love how we always seem to come up with little breakthroughs here and there with this wiki. It's awesome! :) --Maurice 16:15, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
