This needs standard-sized images.--Hardvice (talk) 14:03, 3 January 2007 (EST)

I also suggest a different pic for Broadcasts - perhaps a TV icon? (I would stay away from using in-world pics for real-world articles as much as possible.) - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:18, 3 January 2007 (EST)
Agreed. Let's see what we can find and standardize us some images.--Hardvice (talk) 14:28, 3 January 2007 (EST)
Ooh, good choice for Claire and the Cat! Plus, there's nothing like a can of tuna up front and center! - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:53, 3 January 2007 (EST)

Story Arcs Image

We really should have an image for story arcs on this portal. Since the eclipse is used elsewhere, and the "Are you on the list" image is already used on this page, I suggest Image:Painting claire portal.jpg. Any objections? - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:12, 8 January 2007 (EST)

Subcat for Heroes 360

We need a subcat here for Heroes 360. Any ideas? Are there any promotional graphics apart from the measly banner on NBC.com? Maybe just the NBC.com logo?--Hardvice (talk) 12:13, 27 January 2007 (EST)


Engineer/In His Own Image

These don't really fit well in production, now that the cat/portal have filled out. Any objections to moving them to Portal:Minor Characters and Portal:Episodes? I realize Amid hasn't appeared in "real" episodes, but that should be pretty clear from the article, and In His Own Image would be separated from the story arcs.--Hardvice (talk) 00:32, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

  • Good call. However, Amid Halebi is already in Portal:Minor3 and In His Own Image is already in Portal:Episodes 1. But I think it's a good idea to go full force and remove it from Portal:Production now. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:30, 1 April 2007 (EDT)
    • I removed The engineer earlier today when I put the link here for the Nielsons...he really seems out of place, so can't someone move him to a character section somewhere? --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 06/21/2007 15:58 (EST)
      • I didn't put him back in, but I don't mind him here. He's sort of an inbetweener--not really a character (never been in any aired episodes), not really a traditional part of production. I'm ambivalent about it, but it doesn't bug me that he's here. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:03, 21 June 2007 (EDT)
        • That begs another question. When the DVD's come out next month, and we get the officially released 1x0 'In His Image' epi (finally), will that they make him an official character? It just seems really odd with his inclusion on the Production Portal in consideration of the other items that are listed there....he just seems way out of place. I'm less tha abivalent only because he seems to stick out like a sore thumb. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 06/21/2007 16:06 (EST)
          • It depends on what we decide to do with the DVD. There will be deleted scenes (hopefully one with Lilas Lane playing Kyra), and we'll have to decide how to deal with those characters. I'm all for including them with notes that they were deleted. The engineer is even more unique because of Amid Halebi. Yeah, let's wait until the DVD comes out to make a decision. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:30, 21 June 2007 (EDT)

Previews and Television Promotions?

I am looking for the original Promotions for the show, the couple with the eclipse and the character saying a line from the series. And Season 2 promotional preview, the one where Niki is sitting in the middle of like a million mirrors. Anyone know where to find these? Random guy 04:26, 29 October 2007 (EDT)

  • I found the Season 2 promotion preview on the links page, still having problems with the season 1 previews. Random guy 04:36, 29 October 2007 (EDT)

2Dimensions

  • This is interesting - Not sure how accessable it is to none-UK users, but the clips are on YouTube anyway: 2Dimensions short films - Goldenboy 17:57, 9 December 2007 (EST)
    • Do you have the YouTube links? The links on BBC Two are not accessible to non-UK users. I have a way of accessing them, but I don't want to go dig it out right now. Plus, I think the YouTube links would be helpful if you have them. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:34, 9 December 2007 (EST)
      • Sure, here are the YouTube links:

Broken Doll (Claire)
Black Flock (Nathan)
Leap of Faith(Peter)
Eye See You (Noah)

And the blurb from the 2Dimensions website: "In 2Dimensions, BBC Two talent uncover sides of their character that are seen nowhere else. Hopes, dreams, deepest, darkest fears, hidden secrets and aspirations are all revealed through the 2. The series kicks off with four cool Heroes films, featuring your favourite stars." - Goldenboy 17:19, 11 December 2007 (EST)

  • Oh, they're much shorter than I would have imagined. Thanks for the links--those are really neat. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:57, 11 December 2007 (EST)
    • The vids are cool, but I don't think they should go in this portal; the initiative itself is not related to Heroes, it is only advertised by its cast. :)--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  03:36, 12 December 2007 (EST)

Clean up!

This seems like a pretty messy portal. I tried to do a bit of cleaning, but I think I just kind of took a rag and wiped it around a bit without doing any real cleaning. Some of the portal cells link to other portals, but most link to articles. Is that okay? Is this everything that should be in Portal:Production? Is there stuff here that shouldn't be here? Is there stuff that's here that's duplicated (like product placement or Heroes Interactive)? Also, is template:production on each of these articles (with the exception of the portals)? Really, what constitutes inclusion on this portal? What makes an article a "production" article? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:50, 2 March 2008 (EST)

  • My thoughts: Yes, it's okay for portals to contain subportals. I don't know of other stuff to add to this portal. I wouldn't mind taking off the stuff that doesn't directly relate to the production of the show and relates more to the cast and crew and making them into a new "related-articles" portal, maybe Portal:Articles Related to Production Staff? It would include items such as Awards and Nominations, Birthdays, Claire & the Cat, and a couple more. The production portal should contain articles mainly about the production and airing of the show.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:22, 2 March 2008 (EST)
  • Just verified that template:production is on each of these articles except for the portals.--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:03, 2 March 2008 (EST)

Interviews

  • I don't believe we have the Interviews section linked through any of the portals. Does it make sense to add it and to add it here in Production? (Admin 21:56, 11 April 2008 (EDT))
    • I guess... My only concern is that just about everything else in this portal comes pretty much directly from NBC. But I'm not opposed (so long as it's interviews we're linking to, and not just Category:Interviews). -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:01, 11 April 2008 (EDT)
      • Let's wait and see what others think then. I'm not pushing for it strongly, I just happened to notice it wasn't on any of the portals and wanted to bring it up. (Admin 22:04, 11 April 2008 (EDT))
      • Im all for it! as things are now, the interviews are too hard to find. Heck, I even go so far as to say that they should be linked to somehow from the Main Page. --SacValleyDweller (talk) 00:35, 12 April 2008 (EDT)
        • I found today that they're linked at the bottom of the "Heroes News" section. As useful as they are I'd be happy to see them linked somewhere else more prominent. I know at least one member of 9thwonders.com also didn't see the link and was asking for a direct link from the main page as well. (Admin 01:58, 12 April 2008 (EDT))
