I originally sorted these people by what character they were most closely associated with, but that's obviously flawed. We could sort them by alive/dead, race, number of appearances, vitalness to the plot, or any of a dozen ways. --DarkLight140 13:58, 22 January 2006 (CST)

Right now, nothing is set in stone. And I'm busy messing with the page and screwing up. Have a rough idea that'll at least hold water for a bit but feel free to suggest/discuss better ways. -spiketail 14:16, 22 January 2006 (CST)

Okay... I think that'll work. For now, until something better gets put up. Mainly sorted into 3 categories and alphabetized. For the One-shots and Living Impaired, I think it'll do quite nicely. As for the Somewhat Important ones... no other ideas at the moment other then maybe adding a small descriptive bit for each of them. Heck, do all 3 categories that way. -spiketail 14:29, 22 January 2006 (CST)

It would be cool if the Characters and Supporting Cast and Incidental Characters pages' contents could be copied over into the appropriate Category pages ("Main Characters" and "Supporting Cast" ideally). Then the existing pages could be turned into redirects to the category pages themselves, and the Wiki software would do the bookkeeping for the lists of characters every time one was added and had "[[Category:Main Characters]]" or "[[Category:Supporting Cast]]" included at the bottom. (Of course, the current groupings by relevance to plot, Living Impaired, etc. should be maintained at the top of the page, but there would be an alphabetical listing at the bottom which would be generated and updated automatically every time anyone added another character.) - AnalRetentiveBastard 02:20, 23 January 2006 (CST)

I'm on it now... - Sean 09:49, 29 January 2006 (CST)
Done... - Sean 09:55, 29 January 2006 (CST)

Blegh, that's enough for now. I'm taking a break. --Kestenvarn 19:50, 23 January 2006 (CST)
