Love it or hate it?

Love the page. --Ice Vision (talk) 15:01, 28 February 2008 (EST)

  • I agree, well done. (Admin 15:24, 28 February 2008 (EST))
  • Looks nice. If it's going to be considered for the mainspace, it should follow the standard format. Is this a recurring theme page? If not, the episodes and graphic novels should be listed under their own headings. If it is, the episodic recurrences should be named as such, and should still be listed in their own headings. HE needs a link. The page also needs a navbar at the bottom.

    I'm not sure this is really a theme, though. It fits more with bagging and tagging, but I'm not really sure either one of those are events. But that's probably a separate discussion. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:47, 28 February 2008 (EST)

    • Thanks. It's not meant to be a theme. I think it fits more in Portal:Miscellaneous Lists. That's why I used the parenthesis format and not separate headings for each episode and graphic novel to match memorable quotes. As for missing a navbar, lists don't have one. I asked yesterday if it was okay to create one on Talk:Portal:Lists but no one has replied. Yes, I know it's only been one day. Heh. ;)--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:44, 28 February 2008 (EST)
      • I'd really rather not make this a list page. I think it's better off as something else, and I think it's a good spark for a new category--maybe something like "Practices" or "Behaviors" or something. I don't have a concrete idea in my mind, but see below for some further discussion. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:08, 29 February 2008 (EST)
        • For now, I've added the new miscellaneous lists template, but read my reply and suggestion for a "recurring events" portal below.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:20, 29 February 2008 (EST)

Theme vs. List

Should this move into mainspace, I don't this it existing as a list is the most desirable place for it. However, I can't think of an alternative. -- Lulu (talk) 18:18, 28 February 2008 (EST)

  • I don't see anything wrong with it being a list. However, I don't consider it a theme but am willing to modify it to be such if that's what's decided.--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:21, 28 February 2008 (EST)
    • I was thinking that this is more of a practice than anything else. I'm wondering if we should make a new portal for practices, and include other articles like bagging and tagging, brain removal, and ability theft. Maybe if we come up with a bigger umbrella word than "practices" (nothing comes immediately to mind), we could include other things which don't really fit in Portal:Events, like Linderman's prosecution, Peter's dreams, and Ted's escapes. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:00, 28 February 2008 (EST)
      • How about a new portal then for "reoccurring events" or just "recurring events"? "Practices" doesn't really fit Ted's escapes or Peter's dreams, imho. Bagging and tagging and brain removal would fit, but probably not ability theft, which is more an aspect of an ability.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:18, 29 February 2008 (EST)
