Is it possible this was Eric Thompson Jr? Unseen, Unheard from since "Into the wild" and presumed dead? --Psych-Gen 16:08, 31 December 2008 (EST)

  • Most probably. --Referos 16:18, 31 December 2008 (EST)

So

Have we decided that it is okay to name this "Agent Eric", even though Eric is his first name? We've only been adding occupation prefixes to characters when we know only their last name -- for examples Principal Marks, Agent Taub, Agent Jenkins, Lieutenant Palmer, Captain Baldwin, etc. --Radicell 04:36, 1 May 2009 (EDT)

  • I didn't name him Agent to begin with because we weren't sure who this guy is. If Ryan has some new info. from Tom about him confirming he is an agent of some organization, great. Otherwise, we should probably revert the rename, imho.--MiamiVolts (talk) 04:53, 1 May 2009 (EDT)
    • I think we're pretty sure it's an agent. The term "agent" and "male agent" were used several times in the iStory chapter in which he appeared in. My major concern is that Eric is his first name, and we've never added an occupational prefix to someone like this before. If we agree that adding the prefix here is alright, then the same changes should be made to Jason (Special Agent) and Frank (Special Agent), among others that I'm possibly missing. --Radicell 04:58, 1 May 2009 (EDT)
      • Well, this Eric was supposed to be a Primatech agent, but he wasn't. That's the distinction here. He is called an agent cause that's what the contractor thought he was. I don't think we should put "fake agent" or "impostor" in the name. If he is Eric Thompson, Jr. or someone else, there's a possibility he was working alone, so "Agent" should be removed.--MiamiVolts (talk) 05:46, 1 May 2009 (EDT)
      • As for Jason (Special Agent) and Frank (Special Agent), I think we've had sheriffs for which we only had the first name and called them Sheriff First-Name So I think it's okay to rename those to Special Agent First Name.--MiamiVolts (talk) 05:52, 1 May 2009 (EDT)
        • Alright, so this title should be reverted back to Eric. In that case, could an administrator delete the Eric page? I'll start fixing links to Eric Doyle via Eric, to expedite the process. Also, when I scan Sheriff (disambig), I see Sheriff Davidson and Sheriff Gonzalez, but neither Davidson nor Gonzalez is the character's first name. So I think Frank and Jason should stay as they are. --Radicell 05:48, 2 May 2009 (EDT)
          • Ah, must have been one of the Sergeants, but it looks like then have been changed to just use their first name. So I agree, Frank and Jason can stay as they are. I've moved "Agent Eric" back to just "Eric".--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:18, 2 May 2009 (EDT)
            • Thanks, Miami. --Radicell 21:13, 2 May 2009 (EDT)

Redirects

This article used to point to the article about Eric from the iStory. When it was confirmed in an interview that the Eric from the iStory was Eric Thompson, the article was automatically redirect to that character. There's nothing wrong with making Eric point to Eric Doyle--I very much agree with that redirect. However, when doing so, we need to make sure that all the links for Eric are talking about Eric Doyle (the new redirect) and not Eric Thompson (the old redirect).
