OK, so that other people can tell me in detail where I'm going wrong, I'd like to try to explain the basis of my thinking.
I am probably too accustomed to heavy traffic sites like RP locations and the Marvel wiki, etc. However, in such places the material evolves constantly, people add to and refine on the work of others 24/7.
So, perhaps I'm missing the point of the wiki. I thought it was to collect and lay out information on the TV series, preferably in fairly good (not perfect) English. From my perspective, if there is no page on a character, then something here is lacking. At the moment there are well over 450 red links, which is to say 450 pages which have been suggested but not created.
As for the episodes themselves, very few, after th…Read more >
I'm curious how other people feel about the Sully character, if he'll return, what he brought to the dynamic - everything, pretty much, related to his brief stint on the show.
It has been observed before that, in a long-running show, units stay static in a manner not consistent with real life, but on the other hand, I don't believe most of the audience wants constant turnover. When I first saw him, I have to say, I was rather concerned he was going to replace, or perhaps squeeze out, a character I cared for already, but obviously that hasn't happened.
So, how do the rest of you see it?Read more >
An anonymous user has put forward an interesting suggestion that I'd like to try. So as not to annoy people with lots of less-than-useful categories, I will put them in my Sandbox and leave them for a week or so. If anybody has any comments about whether or not they sound like a good idea, please feel free to leave them. After a week, based on the feedback, I'll decide whether or not to put them into the body of the wiki.Read more >
Looking at the entry for Kay Cappuccio, my visceral reaction was, "Oh, honey!", which instantly made me think of Katy Perry's guest turn in Season 6 of HIMYM. As far as I can see these two characters could practically be twins, or at least identical cousins. So I'd be curious to hear who else other people think could be an offshoot of the same family tree as guest characters on other shows.
Another suggestion, to get the ball rolling, might be Serena Kaye, from Eye of the Beholder, as the ultimate great-grandmother of Jennifer Hettrick's Vash on Star Trek (TNG).

I would be fascinated to know who other people feel are the most "neglected" characters in the series, and, more significantly, why. Among my other forms of employment, I teach writers and actors at university level, and it would be wonderful to be able to offer them insights and perspectives other than my own, or even perhaps to get them to role-play given positions in a debate.
In a few weeks I will post my own opinions here, but I would much rather hear from others first.
