Deaths of characters

Hi, I've reverted all your changes that marked certain characters "deceased". This is because the character did not die in the season that the portal is covering. For example, DL did not die in Season One, so he should not be marked as dead in Season One Main Characters. Hope this helps, and welcome to the Wiki. --Radicell 04:43, 1 February 2009 (EST)

Weird reasoning. Dead is dead. Is this so people won't freak over spoilers? The portals are all inconsistent. Bayareacoder 04:49, 1 February 2009

  • The portals are actually very consistent. People are marked dead in the seasons they are confirmed dead. Kaito didn't die in season one, so his image in the season one portal shows him alive. I don't know if there is an "official" reason for this choice, but spoilers seems like one that fits. For me, it's more about documenting what happens when. Niki's death certainly wasn't confirmed until the third season, so that's when she's marked as deceased. Bob was very much alive during Season Two, so his portal picture for that season shows him alive....Ultimately, there is more than one way to handle this kind of situation on a wiki, and none is "more valid" than another. That's the just the way we do things around here. If you would like to propose a change, feel free to discuss it at the community portal. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:52, 1 February 2009 (EST)
